Crue fans don't bother 25 avril 2003
Par Tonya J. Isbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was really disappointed with Jake Brown's biography of Motley Cure bassist Nikki Sixx. I was expecting an insightful detailed view of the life of the leader of one of the biggest bands of the 80's, but what I got was a little [inexpensive] (not really) paperback that was full of spelling errors, grammatical errors and repeated quotes and sentences through out. All dedicated Motley Crue fans need is their official autobiography, The Dirt.

Definatley not worth the price they are asking now 31 octobre 2007

Ok I bought this book over a year ago from Swagrox I think I paid maybe like twenty bucks for it.. I have been a huge Nikki Sixx fan since Too Fast For Love came out.. and i had to buy it. Its NOT a very good book.. most the information in there is common knowledge and after reading The Dirt you know more about him than what you may learn from this book. The author did a HORRID job.. theres spelling errors and other huge mistakes in there.. I'm pretty sure a trained monkey could have done a better job. Even the font that they printed it in is lame... looks like some teenager with poor eyesight typed it.. in the dark with one arm?? I can't believe these people are asking that much for this book.. its NOT worth it..trust me

Stick with The Dirt and the band's official books 29 décembre 2010
Par Tommy Skylar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Being the huge Motley Crue and Nikki Sixx fan that I am, I thought this book would be a good read. It surely seemed so when I was looking trough it at a bookstore. Unfortunately this is ripping off the fans, it's been said before but it really is as if the author watched the Behind The Music episode on VH1 along with a few interviews and read the dirt. That's about as far as the research for this book went. Ok there is some other information on Nikki but the average fan probably knows all of this. If you've read Motley Crue's 2001 book The Dirt then this book won't be much of an education and you're not likely to learn anything. Besides, the book is very poorly edited with its many typos and tends to repeat itself.

Here is what Nikki Sixx himself had to say about the book:

"Years ago an unauthorized biography called "An Education in Rebellion" was written about me without my approval or support. It was never endorsed. In fact, I disapproved and considered legal action because I felt fans were getting ripped off by being sold a book without my involvement. I feel fans have bought it under the assumption that I approved of it because the writers have collected interviews from people that make it seem relevant - these people who were interviewed have told me afterwards that they had no idea that their conversations were being used for an unauthorized book. I want to say that I do not, now or ever, approve of people riding the coattails of other people's hard work and personal lives - this is criminal in my opinion. This is no different than what the paparazzi does or the gossipy crap that perches like vultures on our newsstands with magazines like the National Enquirer."

"The writer and publisher are now "re-releasing" the book with updated information based on my success with Mötley Crüe, Sixx: A.M., The Heroin Diaries and other ventures I'm involved in. It's scummy at best to be honest. My attorneys have already sent them legal letters directing them to stop but they know the loop holes and how to get around them. Believe it or not, the law allows anyone to write a book about anyone else without getting proper permission which is really crazy because my fans think this was endorsed or approved by me and it's not. This is sad. These people are now partnering up with a company to sell ownership rights to the book's master rights even though they are my life rights -- again, bordering on scum. As a fan of music I do not buy anything unauthorized because I know, unless the artist signs off on it, its hearsay, gossip, and made up to pad the pockets of the writers, publishers, etc. Their website gives people the false impression that these "auctions" have the fans buying some portion of revenues that go to artists or songwriters. In my case at least, nothing could be further from the truth. Nothing comes to me or my family. It's hurtful."

"It's this kind of thing that makes me even more excited to do the Sixx Sense radio show. I look forward to shining a spotlight on issues like this one -- issues that go unnoticed and issues that may otherwise slip through the cracks."

"In the end I worry about the fans being ripped off. I cannot (nor can any of my friends in the public eye) stop these bottom feeders. If you want to know about Mötley Crüe, get The Dirt. If you want to know about band members, get their individual books, but don't support this type of behavior on this or any artists.... they say they're excited to share this with fans and that may be so, but if it's not about the money... then donate it to charity..."

Thank You,

Nikki Sixx

I don't think Nikki is angry or selfish because of this letter, he's rather committed to his fans and don't want them to fall for such a book. I strongly suggest that you take a look at the book before being because you may feel ripped-off afterward like other fans did. I say stick with the band members' books: The Dirt, Tommyland, Heroin Diaries and Tattoos and Tequilas. Those books are much better and are official, Nikki Sixx : An education in rebellion is not what a fan should be looking for. 1/5 stars.

to all motley fans i would say get this book,but,hey it's Nikki Sixx right??i'm glad i got this book,however,it seams Jake Brown has just sat there watching the VH1 special and other T.V interviews of Nikki most Crue heads would have seen,and inserted quotes from these interviews straight into print!i was hoping for something new! if your not a die hard like me then i would say stick with'the dirt'!hope 'THE HEROIN DIARIES' is a far cry from this effort!!

If you can actually make it all the way through this book, you may learn a few new things about Nikki Sixx. Well, I suppose that depends on how long you've been following his career. And whether you've read The Dirt, as this book draws heavily on that one.

As has been said before, this book contains numerous errors, run-on sentences, repetitions, and misspellings. If you took out all the repeated phrases, this book would probably be half as long as it is. Okay, I may exaggerate, but not by much. It seems that Mr. Brown didn't even check to see if he had all of the names right. The most glaring example is Dave Mustaine being called Dave Mustang. Repeatedly.

I'll be avoiding any further books by this author.
