“She’s my cherry pie, cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise, tastes so good, makes a grown man cry, Sweet Cherry Pie
In her new book, Dirty Rocker Boys, Love and Lust on the Sunset Strip, Bobbie Brown, who will forever be remembered as the “Cherry Pie” girl gives us an intimate view of her life and shows us that sometimes the lights don’t always shine as bright as they seem and that having it all doesn’t always constitute happiness.
Bobbie, who hails from Baton Rouge, LA, talks about her journey from growing up in Louisiana to becoming a model, video star, wife and mother. She talks about her marriage to Warrant singer Jani Lane, her drug use and what eventually caused the marriage to implode. Her relationship/engagement to her teenage crush, Tommy Lee and how their subsequent breakup and his high profile marriage a few days later that led her down a spiraling path of drugs and revenge.
Bobbie is very honest about her experiences in her life and on the Sunset Strip and let’s us in on some of the celebrities she has met, hung out with and romanced including Leonardo Di Caprio and Dave Navarro just to name a few.
I was very excited to be able to read and review this book. Today so many rock stars have released autobiographies about their debauchery, life on the road, drugs, band/personal struggles and how they got to where they are today. It’s very refreshing to read a book from a woman’s point of view and how she dealt with the challenges life often throws our way. Bobbie talks about her insecurities, how she battled her demons and how she rose above everything and changed her life. Often when seeing a celebrity on TV, it’s hard to see what demons are knocking at their door and Bobbie shows us that while choices we make in life may not always be the best, they are learning experiences that bring us to the next path in our lives.
