Summary of the Book
The book begins when Slash is born in London, England, and when he moves to Los Angeles, California. He grows up there until he joins Guns 'N Roses, and he begins to go on the road on a 10-year tour of the U.S. After the tour, they record their first album, which was an unbelievable success, and begins another tour, but not of the United States. He tours the world. During that tour, tension builds in the band, mostly on account of the lead singer, Axl Rose. During the recording of their second album, Axl is late to almost every band practice, and tension begins to escalate even further. The third tour of Guns 'N Roses is cut short because of personal issues within the band, and they breakup shortly after. Slash then proceeded to go on a search for a new band, with all new members besides the rythym guitarist. The result of this search is the formation of Velvet Revolver, which becomes incredibly popular with a few hit songs. During the formation of Velvet Revolver, Slash gets married to his current wife Perla, and has two kids, London and Cash. Slash is still a member of Velvet Revolver, although they are on hiatus.
