Atria Books #ad - I'm more interested in revealing what's most important about my life, my ex-band, my ex-wives, the truth, like how I cook my steaks; what I think of the tabloids, my music; and what an innocent observer might find hanging around my house any given Sunday. Those with weak stomachs, strict morals, or chronic indigestion should put the book down now.

We sold over 40 million albums, we scared parents, we wreaked havoc, and we titillated too many fathers' daughters. At seventeen, i joined mötley Crüe and we became one of the baddest-ass rock bands in history. There's another thing i've learned over the years, in court, and in arguments with people I love: There isn't one truth, in fights, there are many.

I've gotten into a lot of fights and I've been to jail a few times. But this book isn't your typical journey in a straight line from day one to day now. I am tommy lee, on october 3, 1962, born thomas lee Bass in Athens, Greece, and raised in a suburb of California by an American father and a Greek mother.

Tommyland #ad - I want to show you how my memories smell. I'd like to get into it now, so please take your seats. 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. 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.

Dancing with Myself

#ad
#ad
Touchstone #ad - A rolling stone top 10 best music books of the year “that’s what i’m talking about…Of all these memoirs, Dancing With Myself was the only one that stimulated my envy—made me want to be Billy Idol for five minutes…. He’s a genuine romantic, writing in a kind of overheated journalese about his London punk rock roots…and then falling head over heels for America” James Parker, The New York Times Book Review.

An early architect of punk rock’s sound, whose lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into pop’s mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, and fury, to this day, style, Billy Idol remains, a true rock ‘n’ roll icon. With it, billy idol is destined to emerge as one of the great writers among his musical peers.

Dancing with Myself #ad - Pen to paper, i’ve put it all down, every bit from the heart. Now, in his new york times bestselling autobiography, “refreshingly honest” daily news, dancing with Myself, Idol delivers an electric, New York account of his journey to fame—from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he ruled—delivered with the same in-your-face attitude and fire his fans have embraced for decades.

I am hopelessly divided between the dark and the good, the rebel and the saint, the poet and the priest, the sex maniac and the monk, the demagogue and the populist. Beyond adding his uniquely qualified perspective to the story of the evolution of rock, Idol is a brash, lively chronicler of his own career.

A survivor’s tale at its heart, this sometimes chilling and always riveting account of one man’s creative drive joining forces with unbridled human desire is unmistakably literary in its character and brave in its sheer willingness to tell. I’m going on out a limb here, so watch my back.
