The autobiographical tell-all “Dirty Rocker Boys: Love, And Lust On The Sunset Strip” by actress, model, and glam rock icon Bobbie Brown, will go on sale Christmas Eve (December 24) via Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The 288- page hardcover was co-authored with California-based journalist Caroline Ryder, who wrote the 2010 autobiography of champion motocross racer Ashley Fiolek, “Kicking Up Dirt” (HarperCollins).
Before “American Idol”, there was “Star Search”. Before there were sex tapes, there were sexy videos. And before there was Pamela Anderson, there was Bobbie Brown.
“Dirty Rocker Boys: Love, And Lust On The Sunset Strip” is the outrageous true story of a Louisiana beauty queen who became an L.A. Goddess, and the dozens of celebrity encounters, rock stars, and tumultuous affairs that followed — Tommy Lee, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Slash, Dave Navarro, and more.
In 1987, America tuned in each week to hear Ed McMahon announce Bobbie Brown as their choice as “Spokesmodel Champion.” She soon landed on the Sunset Strip, and the dream girl seemed to be on her way to a dream life, taking Hollywood by storm as the ultimate video vixen in WARRANT’s infamous “Cherry Pie” video. Her future seemed as bright as her smile, but the world of privilege and adoration was filled with demons, drugs, and a downward spiral of self-destruction.
In “Dirty Rocker Boys: Love, And Lust On The Sunset Strip”, Bobbie takes us on a journey of debauchery, excess, fame, and hair products; detailing how touring the world with music royalty can sometimes lead down a rocky road towards redemption.
Brown recently starred in a new reality series called “Ex-Wives Of Rock”, which premiered in August 2012 on the Canadian network Slice and was co-produced by the former FEMME FATALE frontwoman Lorraine Lewis. Narrated by Shannon Tweed, wife of KISS bassist Gene Simmons, “Ex-Wives Of Rock” chronicles the lives of video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of WARRANT bassist Jerry Dixon); Brown (ex-wife of WARRANT frontman Jani Lane); drummer and Tommy Lee’s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of SCORPIONS drummer James Kottak); and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil) as they struggle to succeed as mothers, business women, friends and spouses after the party’s ended and the glory days are over.
“Ex-Wives of Rock” was just giving the green light for a second season, which will air on both Canadian and U.S. television once again.
