Chile earthquake 1960 survival story
My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N Roses by Steven AdlerFrom the first chapter I hated this man. He is completely self-centered, nothing is ever his fault, every woman that has ever existed apparently is in love with him and he has no remorse whatsoever. This book is a glorification of drugs. It is obvious he is going to relapse as he quite evidently loves being off his face more than virtually everything else on the planet. I think the only thing he loves more than being high is himself.
It was quite evident to me that this book was written by two people. The first being Adler and the second was someone trying so hard to add a humanity to the waste of space.
I feel so sorry for everybody that has come into contact with this person and he played drums on the albums that were my childhood. G N R were like gods to me as I was growing up. I wish I had never read this book as I have realised what an a**ehole he was and still is.
