Duffs Bio was already released
It's So Easy: and other lies by Duff McKagan (Mar 20, 2012)

The bio from Slash was really cool and interesting.

I´m a big fan of the original Guns N Roses. An official bio from Axl would also be cool smile.gif

It just makes you feel sick reading it !! ohmy.gif Can't believe how much abuse those guys put onto themselves in those days !

Yeah the Tony one is good but not quite in the same league.. more like the feel of a convo with someone over a cuppa.

I've read a few that have made me come to the conclusion I wouldn't like/have liked the subject as a person. Hickory Wind, The life and times of Gram Parsons comes to mind

I'm also a big fan from them.. that's why I read Slash's and also many books about the band's history... and yes, an Axl's bio would be something very cool to read.

Excellent! I have to read this one! Another book that I was told is great but never could get it is "The Dirt" by Motley Crue, it seems that this one is very entertaining.

Mate, these people have had incredibly adventurous lives so far, it's only normal for these books to be uber fun to read biggrin.gif

just read the chapter about the little incinent at the house of roger whitaker........absolutely brilliant!!!

the dirt (motley crue) and the heroin diaries (nikki sixx) are great, too...

the most boring biography I read was the one from dave mustaine (sorry but I had a hard time finishing it).

oh, yes and I really liked lie (keith richards)..

Yeah that wasn't as good as it could have been. He kind of glamorised his younger 'karate kicking guitar god who had all the girls etc' younger self a bit too much.
