9780061917127: My Appetite for Destruction: Sex & Drugs & Guns N' Roses

From Steven Adler, the original drummer for Guns N’ Roses, comes My Appetite for Destruction, the inside story of GNR. Offering a different perspective from the bestselling Slash, Adler chronicles his life with the band, and own intense struggle with addiction, as seen on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab and Sober House.

From the Back Cover:

Forty years, twenty-eight ODs, three botched suicides, two heart attacks, a couple of jail stints, a debilitating stroke . . .

Now, Steven Adler, the most self-destructive rock star ever, is ready to share the shattering, untold truth.

Once upon a time, Steven Adler—along with four uniquely talented but very complicated and demanding musicians—helped form Guns N’ Roses. They emerged from the streets, primal artists who obliterated glam rock and its big hair to resurrect rock’s truer blues roots . . . and took “sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll” to obscene levels of reckless abandon. By the late 1980s, GN’R was the biggest rock band in the world, grabbing headlines and awards while selling out huge arenas. But there was a price to pay. For Adler, it was his health and sanity, culminating in his brutal public banishment by his once-beloved musical brothers—a humiliating act of betrayal that caused him to plunge into the dark side and spend most of the next twenty years in a drug-fueled hell.

In My Appetite for Destruction, Adler digs deep, revealing the last secrets—not just his own but GN’R’s as well.

About the Author:

Steven Adler was the drummer for Guns N' Roses from 1985 to 1990. In 2003, he formed Adler's Appetite and continues to perform with them live. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Carolina Adler.

Spagnola is the coauthor of the New York Times bestselling My Appetite for Destruction by Steven Adler; and Christopher Award-winning writer of the Emmy-winning, Golden Globe-nominated television movie The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler.
