The Dirt: Confessions of the Worlds Most Notorious Rock Band by Neil StraussWhiskey and porn stars, hot reds and car crashes, black leather and high heels, overdoses and death. This is the life of Motley Crue, the heaviest drinking, hardest fighting, most oversexed and arrogant band in the world. Their unbelievable exploits are the stuff of rock n roll legend. They nailed the hottest chicks, started the bloodiest fights, partied with the biggest drug dealers, and got to know the inside of every jail cell from California to Japan. They have dedicated an entire career to living life to its extreme, from the greatest fantasies to the darkest tragedies. Tommy married two international sex symbols; Vince killed a man and lost a daughter to cancer; Nikki overdosed, rose from the dead, and then ODd again the next day; and Mick shot a woman and tried to hang his own brother. But thats just the beginning. Fueled by every drug they could get their hands on and obscene amounts of alcohol, driven by fury and headed straight for hell, Motley Crue raged through two decades, leaving behind a trail of debauched women, trashed hotel rooms, crashed cars, psychotic managers, and broken bones that has left the music industry cringing to this day. All these unspeakable acts, not to mention their dire consequences, are laid bare in The Dirt.
Here -- directly from Nikki, Vince, Tommy, and Mick -- is the unexpurgated version of the whole glorious, gut-wrenching story. In these pages, published for the first time anywhere, are Tommy Lees letters to Pamela Anderson from prison: Micks confession to having an incurable disease that is slowly killing him; Vinces experience burying his own daughter -- and the train wreck that his life became afterward; and Nikkis anguished struggle to deal with an entire life fueled by anger over his childhood abandonment, his discovery of the family he never knew he had -- and his subsequent loss of them. And all of it accompanied by scores of rare, never-before-published photographs, mug shots, and handwritten lyrics. No one is spared. Not David Lee Roth, Ozzy Osbourne, Vanity, Aerosmith, Heather Locklear, AC/DC, Lita Ford, Iron Maiden, Pamela Anderson, Guns N Roses, Donna DErrico, RATT, or those two girls from Dallas, Texas.
Make no mistake about it: these guys are geniuses. They invented glam metal and then left it in the dust; sold more than forty million albums from Shout at the Devil to Dr. Feelgood; toured the world dozen times and have the scars to prove it; and maintained a rabid following in an era of throwaway pop stars. Motley Crue has done nothing less than tattoo the psyche of the entire MTV generation. They are the ultimate rock n roll band. And if you dont believe it, read The Dirt. You dont know what decadence is...
There are five biomes on Earth: aquatic, desert, forest, grasslands and tundra. There are two categories of aquatic biome: freshwater and marine. Freshwater regions total less than 1 percent of all the water on Earth, but they provide most of our drinking water and support almost half the number of fish on Earth. Freshwater has a low concentration of salt, generally less than 1 percent. There are three freshwater zones: ponds and lakes, streams and rivers, and wetlands.
Freshwater Aquatic Biomes
The marine biome is the largest biome in the world. This biome boasts of more than distinct species. Marine biome is characterized by salty waters that have a lot of biodiversity making up numerous complex ecosystems. The absence of a biotic factors means oceans would be lifeless. Water depth and water temperature significantly affect the life that exists in this biome. Marine biome is a division of aquatic biome, which also consists of freshwater biome. It is a unique collection of underwater ecosystems, which supports a wide range of animals, plants, and conditions.
