'Captures the thrills of the early years and the madness of fame' Big Issue
Stephen Davis – author of the legendary Hammer of the Gods – details the riveting story of a band that lifted itself from the gutters of Sunset Strip to become the biggest, baddest band on the planet.
Davis brilliantly captures the birth of Guns N' Roses raw power, which – despite rape charges, drug-induced rampages, and a general appetite for destruction – launched the band into the pantheon of rock gods.
With a wealth of detail, Davis looks at Axl's unrelenting quest to release the Chinese Democracy album, as well as the further adventures of some of the Gunners under the banner of the hard-rocking band Velvet Revolver.
