1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Dec. 2002
Format: Paperback
Wall's 1990 book on the mighty Gun'n Roses is still a great read. The noisy, frivolous, gaudy people this book celebrates wanted to destroy the temples of doom - not eat babies. But this stuff was considered dangerous, seditious, contagious and, like good art, any art, a whole lot more fun than you think you're allowed to have. Mick Wall's position as a top UK rock journalist gave him access to many of the world's best bands. As an interviewer he gets very close to the musicians and as a consequence the book is more of a dialogue between friends than a serious interview, and that's exactly where its appeal lies. A book for the hard rock fan and the late 80s nostalgist, it's still a lot of fun to read after all these years. But also check out Nick Kent's book The Dark Stuff, the chapter titled "The Daze of Guns'n Roses" gives an interesting perspective on the band.

For the Guns aficionado 5 April 2010
By J. Crenshaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a huge Guns fan who grew up just a little too late to really appreciate the music as it was happening. I will devour anything I can get my hands on about the infamous Guns n Roses. Though its a little short and does not cover every detail about the formation and downfall of a great band it does give you details others do not. It paints a detailed picture of what was happening with Slash, Duff and Axl at a specific point. I think a lot of it only really made sense because I have read so many other works about the band. But with out that prior knowledge its still a good read for a casual Guns fan or someone just getting into them.

Still a great read 8 Dec. 2002
By Peter Uys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wall's 1990 book on the mighty Gun'n Roses is still a great read. The noisy, frivolous, gaudy people this book celebrates wanted to destroy the temples of doom - not eat babies. But this stuff was considered dangerous, subversive, contagious and, like good art, a whole lot more fun than you think you're allowed to have. Mick Wall's position as a top UK rock scribe gave him access to many of the world's best bands. As an interviewer he gets very close to the musicians and as a consequence the book is more of a dialogue between friends than a serious interview, and that's exactly where its appeal lies.

...awful compared to the rest 15 Jan. 2004
By 3813 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
since others have come out this is superfluous and boring, an egoistic peruse into a band as he saw it at the time, its composed of almost entirely interviews which are these days out of date, not to mention completely two faced in the light of tracks such as 'Get In The Ring', Far better are the newer books available covering all bases.

Mick Wall at Kerrang! 22 Nov. 2001
By Rat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very good GNR book. Any fan of GNR will appreciate. This book is about the 80's only though (But hey, i can't blame the author because he wrote that book before the Use Your Illusion days).
great book. 21 Aug. 2013

this is an look at gnr pre use your illusions. taken fro mick walls interviews between appetite and illusions, go behind the scenes of the gunners. highly suggest this for fans of gnr, especially the 87-91 era.
