Mötley Crüe's lead singer and rock's ultimate bad boy, Vince Neil, lets the real dirt fly in this raw, raunchy, and completely uncensored road trip through the unbelievable depths of rock n' roll debauchery. You've seen The Dirt on Netflex, now read the nitty gritty stories in Vince's own words.

For 30 years, Vince Neil has been one of rock's most notorious frontmen. From sex tapes with porn stars and multiple arrests for drunk and disorderly behavior to his turns as a strip club and tattoo parlor owner, his antics make Mick Jagger look like a choirboy.

Now, he tells the whole story, in his own words, as it has never been told before. The glory days of excess. Vince's break with the band and his arduous re-uniting with its members, especially Tommy Lee. The tragic death of his daughter Skylar. And, for the first time, Vince painfully opens up about his actions (and lack of real consequences) surrounding his part in the drunk-driving death of his friend Razzle. Then there are the stories and anecdotes that even hardcore Crue fans don't know. We also hear the voices of his friends, rock star cronies, ex-wives, family, and children in an effort to get to the heart of the matter.

Tattoos and Tequila reveals the real Vince Neil, from his many vices--booze, sex, and many, many women, to his personal and private tragedies and triumphs as a musician and businessman. Sexy, shocking, and revelatory, this is the first personal account of one of rock's most troubled, outrageous, and flamboyant stars.

The authors opening pretty much explains how this book will go....Vince not remembering some details while having great recall of others.....and it that is how it goes. The book almost sounds like a long interview. Vince's mind wanders and the book follows him off on that tangent for a bit before bringing him back on topic. He occasionally takes blame, but generally blames others for the problems in his life. He obviously still in serious denial about his sever alcoholism and why his marriages fell apart. All in all, you get a real sense of who Vince Neil is....self absorbed, pampered, needy, and on the rare occasion he can see all of this about himself. The only disappointing aspect has been the way he called so many people out in the book (Sharon Osbourne, Nikki, et al.) but has either not be able to articulate why in book tour interviews or has done some serious backpedaling. Also not sure if it was just the Nook version, but there were no pictures like The Dirt or Heroin Diaries had. In any event, if you were a Crue fan back in the day this a great and fast read.

It's worth getting even if you've read the Dirt. He's not the mOst likable person to be sure.

Anyone who has read "The Dirt" will reread some of the stories Vince Neil relays, but there are a whole lot more details. If your are a Motley Crue fan, you will enjoy this book.

I usually dont write reviews but for this one I will. I've read Dirt, The Heroin Diaries, Tommyland and Nikki's book that just came out. I was interested in hearing what Vince Neil had to say so I purchased. I'm in my 40's, grew up with Motley Crue, was a fan in my teenage years and still am a fan. I've enjoyed every book so far that I wrote down here but this one???.....I'm at a loss to explain how I feel. I felt the book by Vince bordered on narcissism. Of course I felt horribly bad about him losing a daughter to cancer. I can relate partially because my son was diagnosed with cancer young. There are too many things I cannot relate with and wouldn't want too. All I have to say is after I read this book I looked within myself and was proud of the woman I have become and wouldn't want to be Vince Neil in a Million years.

It may not be the best, but Vince's story tells you a lot more about him and the person he is. I really enjoyed this book and have found a new respect for Mr. Neil. You will enjoy this book every step of the way if you are a crue fan or not. It will suck you right in and leave you wanting more when you are done. Great Read.

Vince Neil tells his story in the first person in an off the cuff manner without much thought or editing. He's a high school drop out with a limited vocabulary and not much skill in story telling. His main vices were women, booze (and fast cars) which result in fathering a child at 17, four marriages, vehicular manslaughter charge and countless failed rehabs. Today he is sober, happily married and living in Vegas and San Francisco. His a business man with restaurants, tattoo parlors, a clothing line, a brand of tequila and a luxury air charter service. He also runs a foundation dedicated to his daughter (who died of cancer) and performs as a solo artist as well as part of Motley Crue. The book is not terribly interesting but it's always fun to real about rock star excess and celebrities.

Vince is one of the best front men in history and this book is awesome. I would never of guessed Vince dislikes the other band members so much. I was surprised and relieved to read Nikki's comments toward the end but would of loved to have comments from Tommy, Mick and maybe some other rock luminaries. At some points I was wondering if some of the things Vince said are true and other times amazed by the sense of honesty. A compelling read for any Crue head.

I would give this book negative stars if I could. As a super-fan of the Crue I knew that it was not going to be as good as any of the other Motley biographies, but how bad it was I could have never truly imagined. In truth I did not read past chapter 2. the 1st chapter is written from the point of view of the guy actually writing the book, and it was an ok beginning, but the next chapter is non-stop Vince. And you're thinking 'duh' the whole book is Vince, but no. The writer gave no stops of any sort and the result was that the whole thing sounded like one big run on sentence. I even skimmed through to see if the style changed and it did not. My opinion, unless you SUPER love Vince, its not worth reading. . the album is not half bad though.

After just finishing Duffs book this is like reading through a 14 year old kids mind. The guy who wrote it should be embarrased. Im not nor ever was a crue fan. I went the gnr route instead. Now i know why. I havent looked it up but i bet the Feelgood Bar thing never opened up the25-40 locations either. Nicki and or Tommy should kick his teeth in. Hes nothing but a karoeke dude that should feel like he hit the lottery whenever he gets a check. Not even 1 star worthy. Can i get a refund please.
