Bozza started his career as an intern in at Rolling Stonefact-checking, coffee-fetching and doing research for other writers before they hired him full-time in the music department. Please try again later. A repetitive story of doing drugs, smack, coke, drinking booze and fucking porn queens, strippers etc. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The poor guy is so pickled, he can’t even remember the name of his music school and by “remember”, I mean hire someone to research it for him so that he could at least avoid embarrassment in his own autobiography.

Slash by Slash, Anthony Bozza – PopMatters

I have developed a new appreciation for Slash and everything has had to go through to get his various bands off the ground. The 20 Best Folk Albums of Now, Then, and Fleetwood Mac.

It’s a good read, accessible and engaging. I’m in no position to complain that there’s only one hozza paragraph about what Slash sees as the non-issue of being a half-black rock guitarist, though I would’ve loved to have had him give his take on the infamously racist “One in a Million” lyrics, and at least a couple more details on what’s summarized just as “a fight” with the guy from W.


If you ever do another memoir, a part two to this book, choose someone else to co-write with. But how did your egos clash?

This year’s collection includes many independent and self-published artists; no mainstream or superhero comic in sight. The real challenge was trying to catch a glimpse of Slash’s face a shame because he had such a beautiful face. I’ve taken myself to the edges of life my way.

Review: SLASH by Slash, w. Anthony Bozza (Dey Street Books) | Civilian Reader

This book really goes through alot and covers alot of ground,from Guns to Snakepit to Velvet Revolver as well as his collaborations with Ray Charles,Michael Jackson and many others. Guns and other rock fans will get something out of this – its designed to evoke The Dirt, the Motley Crue bio, but has nothing of the freshness and punch of that. The Best Jazz of I felt the need for a visual, here. If antbony expecting a memoir of drug addiction, you may be disappointed.

Skip to content Home Review: I hate it soash a bunch of reasons, but one of them is that the application of these phrases convey such a major misapprehension of what being a rock star is about.

In other memoirs I’ve read, it often feels like anyhony writer is just trying to get through that stuff. I love the genuine nature of his storytelling. At what point did Axl’s penchant for grandiosity and bombast become insurmountably divisive?

Jun 27, Robyn rated it did not like it Shelves: Adam McKay’s gonzo Dick Cheney biopic satire, Vice, won’t be compared to Shakespeare, but it shares the Bard’s disinterest in supervillains’ motivations.


Slash by Slash, Anthony Bozza

Preview — Slash by Slash. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. This book gets into how he made the decision to pick up the axe and start wailing away on the 6string,how he came to form a bond with Duff and Steven as well as how he met up with Axl and Izzy.

Sex As we mixed down boozza song “Rocket Queen”, Axl felt that the bridge needed something; some other element to elevate the drama. He suggested that [his girlfriend] Adrianna Smith, who was with us in the studio that day, fuck him in the antony room so that we could record her vocals and layer bkzza over the breakdown.

There is an important thing missing. He’s come a long way since those days. Guns N Roses fans fed on the stories of debauchery and infighting, and cringed as our beloved band imploded The 80 Best Books of The authors’ whose works we share with you in PopMatters’ 80 Best Books of — from a couple of notable reissues to a number of excellent debuts — poignantly capture how the political is deeply personal, and the personal is undeniably, and beautifully, universal.

The writing style is conversational–in that clearly transcribed conversation kind of way, but it felt comfortable, like Slash was just telling me stories.
