    Wow, that's odd! I did. A couple of my takeaways:

    - Matt is pretty full of himself.. there's not much humility and he's not super complimentary of most people he mentions. 

    - It's obvious his feelings are still very raw about the reunion and he feels he should have been included. He doesn't really have anything positive to say about it. He was invited to play, but offered no money by Fernando.

    - His relationship with Duff seems to be pretty affected by it. He mentions Duff thinks Frank sucks, but Axl wants him. Basically shits on how Duff handled the whole thing. Said Slash referred to it as 'just a gig'. 

    - I was most shocked by how he has NOTHING positive to say about Slash. Not even being complimentary of his playing. Basically says his whole go with the flow, easy going stuff is an act and he's more cunning than anyone. Shits on him for stuff related to Guns, Snakepit, and VR. 

    - Glossed over the VR stuff for the most part. Weiland may have been mentioned a couple times, but his death was barely acknowledged.

    - Acknowledged he immediately regretted his HOF speech, which was probably the most adult emotion he showed in the book. Also used the HOF as an opportunity to shit on Slash.

    - Was easily the most complimentary of Axl out of all of Guns members. I felt his takes were pretty fair.. he criticized some of the bullshit, but was also quick to give Axl praise. 

    - This was definitely on the Anthony Kiedis book level of 'Then I had sex and then I did drugs and then I had sex, etc, etc'. It's hard to tell throughout a lot of the book whether he's trying to brag or it's just an honest reflection. A part of me thinks he's a dude that still completely glamorizes the 'rockstar lifestyle', but he's relatively thoughtful at the end.

     

    All in all, I would recommend it for anyone who likes the band enough to be reading a Guns forum. I'd say 70% of the book involves the period from him joining Guns through the end of VR, which I'd imagine is what most on here would be interested in. And, to me, the fact that this is the first band member's book to be released after the reunion, that was interesting. 

    I preordered mine a long time ago and can’t wait to get it and read it. Nice review!
     

    I wonder if he is changing anything with the book being pushed back to July?

    One pissbreak after another.

    I think I could still die happy if I never hear L&LD and KOHD at a GNR show again. My two least favorites at every show. 

    I would agree on some nights, but mostly all I see in my late 30s now, is my heroes playing the shit that made me love them as a kid. The shit I thought I would never see in my whole life. It is a "little" drawn out though. Fuck it, I will take it, but we do need some new music.

    It's going to really suck ass if they prepared PTU, Hard School, Think About You only for them to not be heard for months. It would also be the most GNR thing they could do unfortunately.

    That is usually how it happens. I know from experience, but that also means that most of the time they will play them later on in the tour or the next tour. All that really matters is that they play them! Eventually, hopefully they do.........but I want HARD SCHOOL tonight GD it!

    We don't like it as staff either. But the choice is to allow links and not have a forum for much longer, or to not allow links and keep this community going. 

    No hate, I was stating the obvious! I love this place! Legally you must do what you have to do to cover your own ass, especially when people are clearly out to get you. That is clearly the case, and it is sad. Hope everyone enjoys the the show tonight, however they can, and most importantly, enjoy it. Also, I love that Axl sounds really good!
