Customer Review

on January 21, 2010
There are a number of problems with this, largely caused by Wall's delusion. In common with most Kerrang journalists of the day he convinced himself that he was friends with the bands that they wrote about. Against this background he is clearly very put out that Axl "fell out" with him and the book is essentially a long whine about this lost, unrequited friendship. There are numerous, very basic factual errors that prove he couldn't be bothered to do his basic research properly (Slash came from London, did he? Nikki Sixx's autobiography is "The Dirt", is it? That's funny, when I read it, I thought it was a book about the whole of Motley Crue and isn't written by Sixx, at all). The book itself tells the interesting tale of GnR's rise and fall, largely through already published material, which is a shame. Throughout Wall constantly drops in bits like "Steven told me" and "while talking to Duff", forgetting to mention that it was during interviews. They're not your chums, which is why you didn't have enough access to generate any new material for this book, Mick. The fact that he's so excited about having boiled eggs with Axl's brother speaks for itself. All of that said it's an interesting story, somewhat spoiled as a result of being lazily put together by a journalist who over-estimates his own part in the tale.
