  Unexpectedly good!

I have to admit, this book was a huge surprise. I expected a decent read, and several great stories from the golden years of Guns N' Roses. I got that and so much more, as the book turned out to be everything a rock bio should be. Slash tells everything the way it was, in remarkable detail. It is brutally honest, but manages to be so without trying to slag anyone off. No "uncomfortable" events are skipped. Everything that went down is here. It is told in a frank and entertaining way. The ups, the downs, etc. If you ever wondered about the inner workings of Guns N' Roses, the relationship between Axl and Slash, how most of their famous songs came about, how the albums were made, and all the events that eventually led to the demise of the band - it's all here, and a great read. A very unexpected, but very pleasant, recommendation!

At first I bought this thinking it'll be pretty dark and messy to read but I was entirely wrong. Usually I wouldn't pick up such a think book not knowing much about the person but just looking up to them in general but it was so very much worth the decision to buy this.

It brings such a deep and meaningful insight to the world fo Rock n Roll and especially the world before I was born and how it was like back then.

The inside of GnR and his future onward is fascinating and he's like us, a human being, but his world is just something beyond a lot of people will ever reach and it's so honest as well.

I highly recommend this read, it didn't bore me and it didn't drag or go on at any part like some autobiographies do, it's very fascinating and you get by it very quickly!

I have so much more respect knowing Slash behind the scenes now and just how much of a personality, history and character he has. It'd astonishing. I would love to meet him but this is as close as it gets.

This guy has done it all but what amazes me is how he can remember the details and write so eloquantly after the abuse he has put his body and mind through!

  AMAZING READ!!

What a book, its simple if you like Slash your more than likely already bought this book but for those of you that haven't do it now!

This book covers so much about Slash (or Saul), from his days being a bmx rider to the days of velvet revolver. The book it often funny a specific part with Slash imagining tiny predator's from the movie predator had me chuckling out loud.
Slash has made some bad decision's when it comes to drug use and other things in his life, but this book is so well written that you never lose respect for Slash infact you will more than likely love the guy even more by the end. Buy this book.
