Re: LA Story [re: EJ]  

In reply to:

(EJ) I read the Slash autobio recently. Another book to keep your hands off. Endless repeats of the same drug abuse and sex stories over and over, unfortunately burying the really interesting parts about the actual history of the band, its members, albums and the eventual split under a heap of redundant rubbish.


...which makes me wonder who Slash wrote the book for. I mean, the sex and drugs might be appealing enough for fans of lewd celeb bios, but I imagine hardcore fans of Slash and/or Guns N' Roses would want something more substantial and music-heavy. Anyway, I bought the Slash book for my brother last Christmas. As far as I know, he hasn't bothered reading it yet.

In reply to:

(Adam) I found ziggfried's fantastically scathing review of the Iggy Pop bio here.


What a pile of shite that book was. At least I can take consolation in the fact that I didn't pay money for it - an Aunt of mine in Glasgow bought it for me. Thankfully, she never asked me how I liked the book. I would have felt kinda shabby telling her how it made my blood boil.
