Summary
After forty years, twenty-eight ODs, three botched suicides, two heart attacks, a couple of jail stints, and a stroke, the most self-destructive rock star ever is ready to share the untold truth. Along with four uniquely talented--but very complicated and demanding--musicians, Steven Adler helped form Guns N' Roses, primal rockers who obliterated glam rock to resurrect rock's truer blues roots. They were relentless, onstage and off, taking "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll" to obscene levels of reckless abandon. By the late 1980s, GNR was the biggest rock band in the world, but at a price. For Adler, it was his health and his sanity. After Axl Rose kicked him out of GNR in front of an MTV audience, Adler spent most of the next twenty years in a drug-fueled hell, but he finally beat it. With his newfound clarity comes a fierce determination to tell all.--From publisher description
