4.5 Unexpectedly good! SveinB | 07/01/2011 | See all SveinB's reviews (14) 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!
