Approach with caution - more shocking than entertaining at times
on 24 October 2014
Not quite what I was expecting..! This is a brutally honest (too honest?) autobiography with non stop tales of drink, drugs, sex, band break ups, etc. on almost every page. The stories of addiction are hopefully enough to put anyone off hard drugs and I was surprised to find out that he was quite as bad an addict as he now depicts himself.
I think Slash tries too hard here to excuse some/all of his past behaviour and failings and is to singular in his focus on his career. Having said that this is often a characteristic of some of the great entertainers who can only succeed because of these character flaws.
Approach this book with caution as it was not exactly entertaining. More shocking at times. Useful insights into his background, history, GNR and VR.
