He is quite a mysterious figure. Is he hiding something? One thing this book did well was convey what being a rock star zlash about, and for me it was fun to read about but ultimately unappealing.

I also have a new interest in all of his music- from Guns, to all the Snakepits, and Velvet Revolver.

I also have in my possession Duff’s and Adler’s biography’s which gozza include their testimony to the dissolving of guns and roses. Yes, Slash, we know that.

I have to believe the pitch to the Harper Collin publishing house went something like this: At what point did Axl’s penchant for grandiosity anthojy bombast become insurmountably divisive?

Duff was the glue on that song – he came up with the breakdown, that wild rumbling bass line, and Izzy provided the texture. It has a few minor flaws, but it was certainly a good read. I love the genuine nature of his storytelling. Chris Wraight Speculative fiction.

Refresh and try again. I debated even adding this book to my Goodreads list. The story of Slash’s one man pre-party prior to his attempt to meet up with Steven Adler at an Znthony golf resort for some self imposed “rehab” was particulary entertaining. Get to Know Us. Well, it was no better or worse than I expected it to be.

Review: SLASH by Slash, w. Anthony Bozza (Dey Street Books) | Civilian Reader

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Two more co-writes followed: This is a candid recollection and reflection of Slash’s friendships past and present, from easygoing Izzy to ever-steady Duff to wild-child Steven and complicated Axl.
