Watch You Bleed
A very interesting read. Just makes me sick to see what these talented people did to themselves and hope it doesn't ruin it for a GNR fan every time I hear their music. Don't even bother with Steven Adler's take on it...
The author's own homophobic opinions and use of slurs was a turn off. I didn't make it very far before I'd had enough of it. I grew up in the same time and place,right here in LA, I'm around the same age as GNR, huge fan, but seriously...read the books by Duff, Slash, and Steven instead.
I grew up listening to GNR as a child... I grew up to be a teenager and GNR was dissolved.. I became a man and saw , izzy and the juju hounds, Velvet revolver, an slash's snake pit all dissolve.. I found this book as a middle aged family man/ rock n roller. I loved every page!! I finished it in 2 days! I could not put it down! I especially love the first half of the book! A tale of great rock n roll debauchery! Love love love love it! Great read!!
