Yeah that's the best story. A naked Slash, covered in blood, screaming, running, hiding... It wasn't even Goldstein who brought him there. Goldstein brought Steven there and Slash thought it's a good idea to visit that resort too. Pockets full of drugs

Duff's story about how he was hanging out with mountain bikers and they were hungover and told Duff that they ''partied like rockstars'' the night before because they drank a six-pack by themselves. Then Duff told them some of his rockstar stories, like drinking throw-up because there was alcohol in it, and so the mountain bikers had to admit that they ''partied like mountain bikers''.

Ok, let me make sure I've got this right, Duff actually drank vomit because of the alcohol content?  Holy cannoli,  I thought I had heard it all, but alas, I have not.😄

Well, I wasn't there to witness it, but he did mention this in his book and it's not something to brag about, so I'm guessing it must have really happened.

I'm still disturbed by the story in steven's book, about a maniac living above him and his mother, who peeked at them while in the toilet.

:wacko:

My favorite GNR story is one told by Matt Sorum in a magazine article. I read this a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) so I might be a little off on the details, but here it is:

It's the UYI tour, another night where the band's been sitting around for a long time drinking and waiting for Axl, so they could go on stage. So finally Matt's had enough, and says "I'm going to find out what the hell is taking him so long" (to the horror of the rest of the band). 

He heads out to look, and eventually enters a room where Axl is sitting on a chair in the middle of the room, holding a shotgun. Axl says, "You can leave now".

So Matt turned around and got the hell out of there as fast as he could. :lol:

 

I'd like to know why Axl's issues were still causing him to be persistently late in 2010 but after improving a lot up until 2014 he suddenly managed to be punctual and incident free from 2016 on. Because back in the day his whole thing was that he needed time to get his head straight to perform whilst simultaneously having therapy for all of the stuff he found out about his childhood.

The fears of getting irrelevant probably made him understand he wasnt better than anyone who was there to see his perform or his bandmates, people have lifes to live. He probably learnt what is disrespect really about.

In Duff's first book when he talks about meeting Axl again for the first time in over a decade. Made me tear up a bit because clearly Duff didn't view Axl as quite the same monster everyone else did. And when they go out to dinner together after Duff is sober Axl orders a drink, pauses and then says, "Make that a virgin."

Thought it was sweet.

My favorite may be before this when he went to his room and security tried stop him saying, "He's taking a shower," and "Don't go in" and Duff nonchalantly says, "Don't worry, it's not like I've never seen him naked before."

This is probably the first clause in the reunion contract: be late once and lose 100 million dollars. I'd have a watch attached to my forehead.

You're watching "Modern Family" too much. The story is about an assistant who used to "live" in Steven's house and peaked on his former girlfriend.

The best story to me is from Duff (a 90's interview talking about Steven).

He was tired of seeing Steven battling with drugs, so he grabbed his shotgun and went to the apartment of Steven's dealer to scare him off.

He them proceeded to bash the dealer's apartment door - full on "pulp fiction" mode -, but got the wrong apartment and broke in a random family's apartment.

There's is this other Duff story: when he punched Chris Holmes (from W.A.S.P.) for saying that black men shoudn't have tattoos to Slash's face at the Rainbow (I guess 89 or 90).

I like in Duff's book that Sly Stone use to just drop by Duff and his girlfriend's shabby little apartment to smoke insane amounts of crack and then mumble gibberish and leave. Talk about seeing your idol crumble

Pretty sure he was nude too.

And using a maid as a human shield.

I'm almost sure I remember reading this, although it could be my youthful imagination - but wasn't there a story about Steven Tyler bumming Steven Adler on a tour bus? If I remember correctly, it was something Adler mentioned quite casually

I like the one where Axl looses his shit and blames everyone for having stolen his contact lenses and then climbs a roof and sits on it like some AOOOOM-guy.

No he said that black men shouldn't play guitar.

That's not the story written in the book, the thing was about tattoos and Chris was making fun of Slash's Shirley tattoo, it all happened at the Rainbow.
