Yeah, SS was majorly into coke. It wouldn't surprise me if any of it was true. She supposedly touch Matt's balls when they were in a limo and Axl was looking out the window talking to someone. Has anyone ever found it funny that Erin is EE and Stephanie is SS?

The Evil Empire and the Schutzstaffel. That's why Axl believed these two wanted to kill him in a previous life. :lol:

Ok, I never figured out the spoiler thing (typing this on a phone) so proceed with caution. Here goes on NITL: - Matt and Duff are playing in South America sometime in 2015 with Hollywood Vampire

One strange thing is how Sorum was such a Casanova? He claims to have been touched-up by Stephanie Seymour. He claims Liz Taylor was wanting to shag him. He claims Naomi Campbell molested him. He appa

Let us stop being fanboys and think about a few facts on the NITL tour. Steven made a few appearances but these were not promoted or advertised beforehand. It sounds like he could have had more i

She didn't say anything negative about Axl, though. It was all praise for Axl while she did her best to depict Stephanie as a horrible person.

is logic she didn't nothing negative about Axl, he is she "boss", i just refer she is enough indiscreet about his private life , when own Axl is very private person.

Not a great book in comparison to Duff’s. Matt comes across as a pretty shallow person. 
 

Slash & Duff picked him to be in Guns N’Roses..there must of been lots of drummers to choose from so I think that in itself deserves some respect. He gives no compliments to the drummer he replaced, Steven. Not sure what makes him think he’s above Dizzy to be honest. I can see why he’s not in the band now & to put it all on Duff isn’t fair...he must know that the person who is calling the shots is Axl. 
 

Getting on Metallica’s plane (while in the cult) and deserting his own band pretty much sums up Matt.
 

Frank in comparison comes into the crowd to watch the support acts before gigs.

Where can I pay to download a copy? Seems quite a few of you have read the book

I believe it leaked, no official/legal download available. Just gotta find it the naughty way.

I pre-ordered the Kindle version and it was sent to me the day it was supposed to come out. I downloaded it then, and although they then changed the date, I have it and that's what I've shared in some of my updates. 

I'm not sure if you can find versions elsewhere. Feel free to PM if you have any ideas.

Yep. But actually it also was Glen who played on the first album. So it was Glen's gig all along, Matt just jumped in for that first tour.

He only plays drums on 5 songs on the record, then there's guests on the others. And it's Duff and Matt on As Bad As I Am which was added as a bonus track on the deluxe version of the record. So Glen didn't play the entire album.

Yes. But Matt played zero. And Glen is the Drummer when they don't have guests. As bad as I am was added after the fact.

So how would I do to get the book? I would love to read this! Is it to late to get the digital version?

Yeah, seconding this question,  I'd really like to read the book now as well. (I've searched, but my usual sources for stuff like that are failing me.)

Funny how Matt mentions how dumb Slash and Duff are, also how they don't shower etc.

I read somewhere Slash got busted not flushing or wiping back in the day at a recording studio?!!? ROFL

I remember in the early days he broke a neck on a guitar just cutting the strings off all at the same time when changing them and a tech had to show him how to do it properly.

In the year in the life Metallica videos he admits he doesn't even know how to turn on his amps.

Crazy times

So I've read a lot of people claiming that the release of the book has been cancelled. I've tried to find more source by googling, to no avail. How do you know that the release has been cancelled?

BTW, I've just read that the book was co-written by two swedes. One of them (Martin Svensson) was a famous bubblegum pop singer in sweden during the late 90's- early 00's. A little bit of trivia for y'all. 

Link to his most famous song (if you're interested):

A rock journalist, Matt Wake, tweeted it.

Are you referring to him meeting with Axl in 2006? For anyone not familiar, here is the story:

https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/matt-sorum-hangs-out-with-axl-rose-in-new-york-city/

Reason I ask is because in 06 Matt said he hadn’t seen Axl for 6 years, so quite intrigued to know what happened when they met in 2000! Hadn’t heard any info on that before.

IIRC they ran into each other in a bathroom or something at a hotel and it didn't go as well as the later meeting did. This was right around the time Live Era came out and I think they got into it over that.

the state of this band is truly laughable 

It is.

To think just four years ago, we looked at Duff and Slash's return as sort of a rebirth of the classic Guns N' Roses.

Unfortunate that Alan Niven is not the manager of this band in 2020. He's the only guy that forced them to work.

It was removed from the publisher's website.

In general, don't get in a relationship with girls that aint funny. Its pointless, if you cant laugh with your girl. And Steph was definately not a funny person.

 

Yeah, she seems like the exact opposite of "fun". Definitely doesn't strike me as someone you could have a good laugh or even a decent conversation with.

I find disgusting that Beta talk about the Axl's and Seymour relationships in such poor taste. She seem my neighboring of the next door. She isn't seem be management of an great band.

Yeah, she did those interviews in Brazil and Axl may not have known what she said exactly (although some of them were translated into English and posted on GnR fansites). This one was with an online women's magazine in Brazil.

I didn't know that. It was a long time ago, but I still remember reading these translated interviews with Beta (and also Fernando I think) because it was the first time I felt a bit weirded out by TB. The way they talked about Axl sort of made it sound like they were talking about a child rather than their boss (might have had something to do with the translations I read though). And man, I'm glad for Axl if Beta and family can provide him with the family atmosphere and affection that had been lacking in his life, but these interviews still struck me as somewhat strange, enough that I wasn't even sure if they were real. Always kind of suspected they were made up, but good to know there is at least some kind of source for these (or at least that specific interview), thanks.
