'Tommyland is the world inhabited by the heavy metaller Tommy Lee… Appropriately, the opening chapter is constituted of a Socratic dialogue between Lee and his own penis ("Bro, don't disrespect me," says the penis. "I've always been a big fan of yours.") Read alternate chapters of this and Pammy's autobiography Star and you'll know what Heloise and Abelard would have been like if she'd been an air-head swimwear model and he'd been a member of Motley Crue with a passion for firearms and intimate shaving' Matthew Sweet, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
'What a wonderfully modern take on the picaresque . . . and, man, is it a wild ride. If 2002's Motley Crue biog THE DIRT was the last word in hot tubs, blow jobs and hairspray, then TOMMYLAND is a much more personal, intimate journey . . . the chapter on his four-month jail term for spousal abuse is handled with a great deal more weight and seriousness than you might expect' Natalie Moore, TIME OUT
Présentation de l'éditeur
But this book isn't your typical journey in a straight line from day one to day now. I'm more interested in revealing what's most important about my life, like how I cook my steaks; what I think of the tabloids, the truth, my ex-wives, my ex-band, my music; and what an innocent observer might find hanging around my house any given Sunday. You'll get plenty of facts and I'll tell you a story, but my real mission here is to paint you a picture of my life. I want to show you how my memories smell.
I'd like to get into it now, so please take your seats. I advise you to keep your arms and legs inside the car at all times. If you have a pacemaker, a heart condition, or if you are pregnant or too damn short to reach the safety bar, I ask that you turn back immediately. Those with weak stomachs, strict morals, or chronic indigestion should put the book down now. For the rest of you, there's one truth that's real across the board: What you send out is what you get back. Send out the good, people, and it will come back to you. There's another thing I've learned over the years, in court, in fights, and in arguments with people I love: There isn't one truth, there are many. This book is my truth.
