2.0 out of 5 stars Great first half of the book, the second half is very poor, 28 July 2007
The first half was really interesting as Mick Wall had access to the band and more importantly AXL, resulting in an insiders story to what was going on within the band up to mid/late 1990. Then when Axl fell out with him the second half of the book seemed to be Mick Wall on a mission to slag off anything Guns N Roses and more specifically Axl did from then on.

He seemed to only have one thing in mind and that was slagging off Axl and never attempted to provide a balanced story, the second half of the book was also full of inaccuracies, one example of which was when he talked about their 1991 Rio shows and how the crowd wasn't into new songs such as November Rain (It wasn't played).

I'd recommend reading the first half of the book but from then on I wouldn't bother, I went to the Leeds 2002 show and 2 shows on the 2006 tour and thought they were amazing but Mick Wall made these out to be bland, boring and dull affairs... far from what I remember about it!
