There have already been bios on Slash and Axl, and we're still waiting for the books on Gilby Clarke and Izzy Stradlin and the other members of Guns N' Roses. In the meantime, Slash's close friend has put together all of his memories and a lot of terrific photographs to create this memoir. It is a beautiful book, and there are photos here that you've never seen before.

An oral narrative with the various band members connects all the pictures to deliver an insider's view of the early days of the band and its rise to fame and infamy with the release of their debut album, Appetite For Destruction. In addition to copious amounts of interview material with the band, the book includes dialogue from producers, A&R record company people, and musician acquaintances.

You're going to buy this book because of the photos; if you want to really know what happened with GNR, you'll go out and get Slash's book (far superior to Axl's).

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2008
