    The one thing I can remember is that David didn't like to share his cocaine with anyone.

    By the way it is a great read.

    They mention one of the Crue biting Ed in 1984 . If you like The Crue you`ll love the book.

    I believe there is a mention of Dave doing cocain and a glass-closet door falls on him and shatters, but Dave was so FUBAR that he didn't even notice it.

    Dave's book doesn't mention the event, but he sure mentions a lot of other Cocain supported events.

    Yeah it's a great book! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] They mention VH a bunch of times in it.

    From what I remember, DLR used to visit Motley at their concerts. He tried to give Vince Neil advice on his career early on, about not signing bad contracts that could haunt the rest of your career. Also Dave used to do drugs with the Crue. Dave was so high once at their apartment that a door broke off and fell on his head and he didn't even notice it! [img]redface.gif[/img]

    Also Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx both bit Eddie's hand, and Valerie saw it and freaked out on them. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Vince Neil said that he used to hang out with Sammy, when his solo band toured with VH, and he would have some drinks with him before he went on stage.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    The part about Nikki picking up Eddie & slammin him on a table & biting his stomach is hysterical. Valerie was freakin & Ed wasn't exactly a happy camper. Great read, definitely get a copy.

    Great book, lots of Van Halen in it.

    Crue's life wasn't as good as it seemed.

    I concur. I loaned my copy of "The Dirt" to a friend and now I'm itching to get it back so I can read it again.

    I just finished DLR's book recently and I was sadly disappointed. I found his style cumbersome and over-bearing at times. Scary to think that he started with a 1200 page manuscript in his "boze de boze de bop style". His editor must have been a saint. If I wasn't such a fan of the Roth-era I don't think I could have hung in there for the three or four chapters of real meat that the book contained.

    His editor was Henry Rollins from Black Fag and his own shitty band.
