3.0 out of 5 stars Mick Wall beating a dead horse..., 1 Aug. 2007
Being a big Guns N' Roses fan, I was pleasantly surprised to find this book in my local bookshop. I knew Mick Wall's history with the band and had enjoyed some of the articles he had written for 'Classic Rock' magazine. Unfortunately, this book doesn't seem to be saying anything that isn't already out there. From summaries of interviews from Kerrang!, Rolling Stone, RIP etc. to stage quotes from live shows that can be found on youtube, this book could have been written by anyone. There also seems to be a lot of presumptions about how Axl felt about certain things. Obviously, not many people wanted to be interviewed for this book and it really shows. For nit-pickers like myself, there are a bunch of basic factual inaccuracies e.g. Slane Castle is in Co. Meath, Ireland NOT Co. Dublin. Wikipedia could tell you that...

I'm still waiting on the definitive Guns N Roses book....
