I think I do remember those rumours. Slash answers the question once and for all about whether he will ever get back together with Salsh. Drugs A doctor installed a defibrillator in my heart when I was I’m in no position to complain that there’s only one dismissive paragraph about what Slash sees as the non-issue of being a half-black rock guitarist, though I would’ve loved to have had him give his take on the infamously racist “One in a Million” lyrics, and at least a couple more details on what’s summarized just as “a fight” with the guy from W.

It was fascinating to learn how GNR formed and what went on behind the scenes. The book is mostly chronological, but it does jump around a bit, too a lot of annoying “i’ll get to that later” phraseswhich is disconcerting but the least of the book’s problems.
He’s so humble and he knows that he’s not the best, that there are others better than him, but he’s cool and accepts it that at some times I just want to hug him or cry regardless of his disregard for drama. As hairmetal bands exploded onto the L.

Review: SLASH by Slash, w. Anthony Bozza (Dey Street Books)
He loved his reptiles and most especially snakes. I skipped his childhood to get to the important part and planned to stop reading after Guns ‘n’ Roses broke up, but I got kinda attached to the guy so I kept going until the end and then went back and then went back read the part that I skipped.
I am pulling for you to have a happy and calm life filled with a lot of music-making.

The storytelling is horribly tedious and focuses on so much minutia t I am a huge gnr fan and I have to say that I am terribly disappointed with this book.
The story of how the Use Your Illusion albums were made is awesome. Those guys are innocent angels compared to the likes of Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. I enjoyed this book and I feel like I know more about Guns N’ Roses for it, but I think I was expecting it to be more of a biography on GNR and not quite as Slash-centric — I don’t know why, after all, the fucking book is called Slash.
