slash was great for the wild stories and inspiration on learning guitar

steven's was great too, in a different way. it's interesting to read his different approach to similar events

duff's offered lots of life whisdom, particularly about how to keep a delicate balance between acting cool and acting like a dick. i know at least one poster on here who could learn a thing or two about it. some people want to be "too cool for school", which is not cool 8-)

I'm not halfway through the book, but I'm enjoying it. I love the parts of how he started to play, the tidbits about his sound. I didn't expect so much detail, so that's a good surprise. Hoping to read more of it this weekend.

The book left me speechless in a few places. I didn't realise Slash nearly died, that was a shock. What surprised me the most is how open and honest he was throughout the book​.

wait till you read stevens...

I hope I do someday. I think I watched him on Celebrity Rehab a few years ago, haven't kept up about him since. I hope all the guys GnR are doing well these days. I can say if I find anymore autobiographies by the guys, I will be sure to buy them.
