Abstract:

A journalist who had unprecedented access to Guns n' Roses at their peak delivers a history of the band's charismatic, talented and idiosyncratic leader. Even in the world of rock, a figure like Axl Rose doesn't come along very often. Mercurial and brilliant, deluded and imperious, Rose defies easy description or analysis. Few people have studied Rose as closely as Mick Wall. Traveling with Guns n' Roses and writing about them in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Wall first earned Axl's trust and later his fury. This book goes back to the beginning, revealing Rose's childhood influences and tracking the birth of the band. With fame and money came substance abuse and infighting, and a lead singer who morphed from eccentric to seemingly unhinged. Wall's book is richly detailed and offers new views on some celebrated incidents.--From publisher description.
