Rock Books - Slash:The Autobiography
Slash is an autobiography written by rock guitarist Slash with Anthony Bozza.
Most of the book focuses on Slash's years with Guns N' Roses. Slash talks about Axl Rose, frontman of Guns N' Roses, and his departure from the band in the mid-1990s. He explains that Axl's inability to show up to gigs and rehearsals on time, in addition to Axl's almost dictator-like control of the band contributed to the band's downfall. Slash also states that Axl wanted to change the musical direction of the band to include more synthesizers and effects, rather than guitar-driven rock as with their earlier material.
