From original Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler comes a tale of sex, drugs, excess, hairspray and and intense 20-year struggle with addiction.

Steven Adler is the original drummer, with an infamous past of sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll that led to his removal from the band. And here, for the first time, Steven Adler tells it all. In My Appetite for Destruction, he reveals with wit and candour his personal struggles with drug addiction, including the financial ruin he faced after being kicked out of Guns N' Roses and the health problems that almost claimed his life several times - two heart attacks, a suicide attempt, and a debilitating stroke, as well as an epic 20-year addiction to crack and heroin. Now clean and sober, Steven sets the record straight on his life and his time with Guns N' Roses, during the rise and collapse of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

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:
