Mötley Crüe’s autobiography, The Dirt, will finally come out as a biopic on Netflix This March. Vince Neil (Vocals) shared the news via twitter “Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices. Just saw The Dirt movie!! Fuckin’ awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Released March 22!! Yea!!!”. Motley Crue released The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, co-written by Neil Strauss, in 2001, containing stories you only dream of doing. After reading The Dirt you will think “When the word debauchery was made, Motley Crue’s picture should of been with it”. The book depicts abuse of drugs, alcohol and groupies, Ya know the things of Rock n Roll?
If you have yet to read the book, do yourself a favor and catch up on the stories before watching the movie. Not only does the book let you in on some of the grit, it also takes you on a personal ride with each member giving their input on the stories. In a previous interview (Rollingstone.com), Drummer Tommy Lee gave some insight on what fans should expect. “Nikki and I went to a table read and it was so fucking surreal,” he said. “Especially when the movie opens like that, you go, ‘Oh, my God, if it opens like this, this is fuckin’ nuts.’ That was really a trip. [Director] Jeff Tremaine’s vision is to … make it as real as possible. He’s really detail-oriented. He’s like, it’s going to be down to the cars you see on the street, the telephones from the Eighties, the lights. The outfits. You’re going to feel like you’re in that time period, and he wanted a lot of stuff. There will be a lot of P.O.V. stuff where you’ll be in Vince’s head, in Nikki’s head while it was going down.”
As you can see, this is going to be yet another Netflix original. I myself am going to read The Dirt again. Four new tracks have been recorded with legendary producer Bob Rock (Dr. Feelgood, Motley Crue – Self titled, but don’t expect a full length album in the near future. Sixx shot down the idea that the band would be making a full LP in the future. “No chance of another record,” he told Classic Rock in 2016, continuing, “I want to just leave it intact. I see no reason. We couldn’t be creative as a band, so how the hell can we continue? But I’m glad the way it finished — we did it all, we did what we said we were going to do, and now I’m excited about the future.”
