I named my 1987/88 rock-travel memoir 'The Guns N' Roses Worker-Traveller' and I just published my second collection of poems and thoughts on Amazon Kindle called '242 Mirror Poems and Reflections'. In the intro I write that if my first collection was a raw debut like Guns' 'Suicide' or Metallica's 'Kill 'em All' I hope this will be a more mature production, like Appetite/Illusion or Puppets/Black.

One of the reflections is called 'Analysing Axl Rose', inspired by Axl's decision not to attend the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. It argues that Axl never courted fans' devotion, and that may have been a survival tactic, as he hoped that they wouldn't expect anything of him then, and be disappointed or feel let-down when he did things his way, as he knew he would in the future if he survived, for his own mind and needs.

The book is full of poems and thoughts concerning the bipolar mind, society and culture, so should appeal to Guns fans who like the band's lyrics, and may even fill a gap until more Guns material appears...
