"Nobody on the planet has dedicated their life to documenting the entire history of Mötley Crüe more accurately, thoroughly, and continuously than Paul Miles. Rather than recount the story of the most reckless musical act the world has ever seen in the past tense, this book will guide you through every step of the way as it all unfolded. Pulling no punches and telling no lies, Paul Miles will reveal facts that have been covered up, forgotten, or falsified by every previous account. Get ready to find out the real truth behind the highest highs and lowest lows in the Crüe's perilous kingdom of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll..."
Steve-O, of MTV's Jackass and Wildboyz infamy

Buy Chronological Crue Vol. 3 - The Naughties"Paul knows more about us than we know."
Tommy Lee

"I've read it before and gone, we did THAT?"
Nikki Sixx

"Chronological Crue is without a doubt the definitive Mötley Crüe reference work. I used it extensively in writing the script of The Dirt and I highly recommend it to not only fans of the band, but anyone with an interest in the history of rock n' roll. For contained on these sweaty pages is a treasure trove of sleazy tidbits on not just the band but the slew of other musicians, critics, groupies, scum sucking corporate-types, famous wives and infamous playthings who came across their path. If Mötley played with them, partied with them or shagged them silly, it's here for all to see. It is a compulsive completist's dream, filled with the sort of arcane minutia that can settle arguments, win bets, or simply allow you to sleep after pondering for hours the exact date of Nikki Sixx's first overdose in the back alleys of Hammersmith. Now hurry up and buy it so Paul Miles can finally feel as if his life has meaning."

    For over 18 years, Mötley Crüe have continued to entertain audiences with their jaw-dropping, live rock'n'roll shows. Their teenage beginnings saw gigs with chainsaws eating through mannequins, and a raw energy and sound that ignited the public. The Crüe turned crowds into fans and were soon tearing up stages in every corner of the globe, doing what they do best - excess! Over the top amounts of pyro, lights, sweat and volume provide the inspiration for destruction and mayhem, both on stage and in the audience. Mötley have always set new benchmarks in live performance with every dangerous and spectacular tour production. From disturbing video footage on big screens to more naked flesh than your local strip club, Mötley Crüe have survived the test of time by proving rock'n'roll is - "Entertainment or Death."
    Paul Miles, fan, Sept '99.

    Long overdue and eagerly awaited by Crüeheads and metal fans alike, ENTERTAINMENT OR DEATH was the first-ever live Mötley Crüe release. And instead of just pulling a couple shows from the group's reunion tour, this double-album covers Mötley Crüe's entire career; it is an audio souvenir of one of the most exciting live bands ever: Mötley Crüe - Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitar), Nikki Sixx (bass), Tommy Lee (drums).

    This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Recorded between 1982 & 1999, the release contains liner notes penned by Paul Miles.

    Too Fast For Love: A Millennium Tribute to M�tley Cr�eToo Fast For Love: A Millennium Tribute to Mötley Crüe
    by Various Artists

    Released by Versailles Records
    Release date: 19/06/07
    Double-CD, 25 tracks
    Catalog: -

    In 1981, four rebels obsessed with music came together in Hollywood to create Mötley Crüe. The youth dug their outrageous image and theatrical performances, as parents and the establishment were appalled. The Crüe’s bona fide “sex, drugs and rock’n’roll” way-of-life that shot them over the top has certainly been well documented in recent times. But the trail of destruction left in the wake of their accomplishments is certainly not their only legacy: too often overshadowed by drama, their impressive catalogue of songs now spanning three decades continues to inspire and influence musicians worldwide. And as the runaway success of the band’s second wind continues to blow people away, the legacy of Mötley Crüe’s music – from rock anthems through power ballads – will forever warm hearts and keep fists in the air.
    Paul Miles, Nov '06.

    This 2-CD tribute from Versailles Records in New York includes liner notes by Paul Miles and legendary producer Bob Rock, plus music contributions from former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi on Home Sweet Home, Vince Neil's son's group Rock N' Roll Junkies, Grammy-winning keyboardist Randy Cantor, current and former members of Lillian Axe, L.A. Guns, Quiet Riot, Brides of Destruction, Warrant, Ratt, Love/Hate, Cinderella, Dio, Union, Poison, Vince Neil Band, W.A.S.P., The Scream, Dad's Porno Mag, and Pretty Boy Floyd; as well as up-and-coming rock acts/musicians Pretty in Stereo, American Heartbreak, Crash Kelly, Richard Kendrick, One Bad Son, Robot Lords of Tokyo, Jessie Seely, Chris Catena, Chris Heaven, Reckless Fortune, Corey Craven, Fuel From Hell, 12 Years Coming, and Straight Jacket Smile.
