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.

Honest and tragic. Adler doesn't shy from his addiction and shows just how terrible drug and alcohol addiction really is.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
great read, similar to Anthony Keidis read. this guy is lucky to be alive and I respect his happiness to play RNR, unlike some of his band mates, as mentioned in the book. Read morePublished 1 month ago by crayon man
Good read. This book is written so you can read it. Some others I have read lately are so slow that you can even get interested. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Bonnyray
