4.0 out of 5 stars Good to hear Adler''s side of the story, 27 Dec. 2010
This review is from: My Appetite for Destruction: Sex & Drugs & Guns 'N' Roses (Hardcover)
I was expecting a pretty messy account given the media portrayal I'd been led to believe of Steven, but this is a very interesting read, indeed a must read for any G n'R fan. Great to hear Steven's side of his sacking from the band, which indeed did seem more than a little unfair (given how all the band bar Axl were alcohol or hard drug dependants). Some of the high's of rock and roll antics are described in much fuller honest detail than in Slash's book, the groupie antics with Nikki Sixx and Steven Tyler being a case in point. However it's pretty sad to hear the pit of drug abuse he couldn't seem to shake until very recently.

I personally think Adler's uncomplicated straight ahead almost punk style of drumming certainly is one of the major factors why AFD is a timeless classic (and the Illusions albums have aged pretty poorly). Thanks again for the timeless music Steven, I think you got out before the band started to suck anyhow.

Best wishes to his remained sobriety (and don't end up smoking the royalties you'll get from me buying your book!)
