Written by a band insider, this is the most comprehensive, fully illustrated, up-to-date unofficial exploration of Guns N’ Roses.
Fans of Guns N’ Roses, one of the world’s most beloved and hardest-rocking bands, had long dreamt of a reunion—and in 2016, after 23 years, it finally happened. The classic lineup of Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, with guest appearances by drummer Steven Adler (minus original guitarist Izzy Stradlin), launched the worldwide Not in This Lifetime tour to rave reviews; the tour currently runs through early September 2017. Author Paul Elliott, one of the first rock journalists ever to interview Guns N’ Roses and their former PR officer, brings a real edge to this insightful examination of the group, its music, its success, and its struggles. The book contains 200 stunning color photographs from key photographers who have documented the band’s career.
