From original Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler comes the inside story of Guns N’ Roses through a new perspective and his own intense struggle with addiction.
Guns N' Roses are one of America's most successful rock bands, with estimated sales of 90 million albums worldwide. Steven Adler is the original drummer, with an infamous past of sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll that led to his removal from the band.
And here, for the first time, Steven Adler tells it all. In My Appetite for Destruction, he reveals his personal struggles with drug addiction, including the financial ruin he faced after being kicked out of Guns N’ Roses and the health problems that almost claimed his life several times - two heart attacks, a suicide attempt, and a debilitating stroke, as well as an epic 20-year addiction to crack and heroin.
Now clean and sober under the watchful eye of family friend Dr. Drew Pinsky, Steven wants to set the record straight on his life for all Guns N' Roses fans and anyone else who is interested in discovering what really happened during the rise and collapse of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Couldn't put it down
Just like watching a car accident, you cannot stop looking. It's interesting to read it all from Stevie's point of view after hearing it from everywhere else. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but still feel sad for Steve, I hope he continues on his sobriety journey for that elusive goal that we all want.... The ultimate GnR reunion!
Good luck Steve, thanks for your book.
What a thrilling, saddening, eye opening read! Brings home some truths about the rock and roll life style. Kind of makes my glad I'm not rich and famous... Great read
Good to see actual truth in literature these days.
With Stevie all the best in life.
