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

So many posts to quote. I like this of yours best which describes him best . MattS should be grateful from that point with GnR. There would have been a great starting point for his GnR chapters . He was there at really the best time. They headlined. They passed the first album blues.  They were at their peak. He was part of UYIs. Major movie, Terminator , with theme song and video. Industry respect there. Musically, AFD and UYIs sound like two different bands ,but in a great way. They grew in songwriting,  skill, musicianship, age , etc.  UYIs was  not AFD , part two

In reference to your first post on this page, Heidi’s girls were all consenting adults of sound mind. Her business was legit. Hey, I am not the moral police, but there is a difference between consenting, adults rights to do as they want to themselves vs. the other thing. Ehhhhh, I cannot even post that . 
Sex , drugs, rock n’ roll . Shyt happens. I have not read his book, but those here who have, that was too much info. TMI. It is good he is doing a rewrite. He really can take  the bad luck of having his book delayed for a year and change it into good luck by doing a rewrite. He sort of got to do a book  review test.  How his book was out  on schedule for sales then pulled back when the virus happened defeats  releasing the same book later . People already bought it and I don't mean the six people here. Just think hundreds ,, maybe thousands were bought . Passed around. At second hand book stores. Garage sales. It is an old book now or previously released book. It is smart and best to do a rewrite.
I.think he should tone down his rock star sexual  events. Write it all,  but less of it all. His life is good , lucky , and  interesting with good stories  without throwing others under. Add more of the very funny stories of things that happened and dangerous things. Be remorseful and own up his missteps. Add how he felt , taking the reader there after finding out , Matt, you are The Cult’s drummer. He met GnR along the way. Oh, GnR wants you as their drummer. UYI  recording, tour  starts ... sign your contracts. Take the reader there.Lots of great drummers out there, but if you cannot earn a living at it, it is a hobby. Only the great drummers are known who  had luck of the draw,  right time,  connection, and place made it.  His sobriety. Hitting that rock bottom. His  life all up after with his dreamgirl, Ace, etc.

Now, Slash and Duff are not saints. He needs to put in how, when, what happened about him wanting to get in on NITL tour.  HVampires stuff. That is not throwing others under.

Duff and Slash wrote about others too. Drugs, music, etc. Ya’ think Izzy really wanted that story that Slash wrote of them and some girl, poor creature. 
Fernando. Maybe he read it and maybe not. MSorum has every right to write a book and telling his GnR side of things . Then, vome on, you know you want to know all about him wanting to be on NITL.

I hope his revised book is way different, better, rewritten.

Quite a long post of opinions about a book if you haven't read it!

No one needs soap opera. We got GNR. 

This whole thing becomes more entertaining than any new musuc could be. 

Could someone please ask Matt if the current version of his book is still up to date? 😄

I was also surprised to hear that the Snakepit album was a product of bitchiness and in-fighting as well.

The thing about Slash and Duff being too stupid to get women and how he had to teach them how to be rockstars was absolutely obnoxious.

And that's just one of many examples in the book. I'm not talking about stuff like Slash screwing him over again and again, but about the small, pity little digs at them throughout the book.

Like how he talks about Slash and Duff not showering after shows or not changing their clothes for long stretches of time.

Or how their diet was crap and consisted of junk food. Or how Slash had/has a weak stomach and would throw up after shows from the adrenaline or nerves or whatever.

While Matt of course knew the importance of healthy eating and of taking showers and was never a puking wreck like Slash after a show (someone like Matt has more important things to do after all, like selecting the best groupies before Sebastian Bach gets to them :facepalm:).

He's just so... self-aggrandizing, even about pointless little shit.

 

Smelly nervous young Slash — that’s our guy! ❤️

Kick rocks, Sorum.

Let's be nice to the ladies. If you wanna see some hard core dick sucking, pop into HTGTH. Mind you, there are no girls involved in it over there. ;)

VR had a set of groupies I would see at every show in NJ, Atlantic City, Philly and NYC. And there was always one chick amongst the group who would attend at each of those shows. But, it seemed like she had to fight to get back stage.  

Was Matt's gf among them?

I always liked Matt but after reading this book I really think he is a fucking douchebag. I am also glad that they cancelled my preorder for the book. I will not be buying the new version if it ever does come out. He really does think he is way more important than he actually is, and I'm not just talking GN'R

You have zero opinion minus having read the fucking thing.

You are of course entitled to an opinion, but not your own facts. Having not read the book. Your just rambling. and contradicting yourself.

What in the name of Zeus are you on about? :facepalm:
 

My GUESS... Is that Matt being the vain fuck he his, delayed the physical release cause he couldn’t go from town to town, radio station To radio station, tv show to tv show, book signings and whatever other chances he might have found to stick his thumb up some young lady’s bum... TMI. 😂.... 
 

he wants his face everywhere. He can wait. The FEW people who got hold of a digital copy and the smaller few who got a physical copy have alas not rushed the garage sales and second hand bookshops just yet.

Not that I recall. This was 2004-08

did the groupies actually get to the band members?  everyone but Matt was married by then (not that it matters to some people).  Was Matt the only one that hung out with them?

Can anyone fill me in on what he said about recording with Snakepit? What about it was contentious or whatever?

I forget exactly but it was about how he felt the singer sucked. I think he was just doing that project to keep the band together as I recall. He didn’t tour with snakepit

Iirc correctly, first Matt was pissed off with Slash for calling the band Slash's Snakepit (instead of just Snakepit).

Later Matt was pissed off with Slash for not consulting with him about the singer for the record (and maybe also not asking his opinion about everything in general).

Slash just went ahead with a singer he liked and when Matt heard the result he hated it, threw a hissy fit and told Slash not to use his drumming on the record anymore.

I totally agree with you. Well said. Ok. Godamm, Amaya.  What the fukc  I am rambling on about . For the love of everything holy. , , Jesus Fukinc Christ..... I need to shut the fukc up. Get a life, wiil me. What a stupid biitchh am I.  What a psycho I am. I did not read the dam book so I have zero , nada opinion. 
Ok. Did I leave anything out?  Are you happy now? 
 

No. I have read the book. Others here have and I just take their opinions of it and made my own.

I like the music from AFD to UYIs. I like all the members of GnR. I don’t fan out. I like their music AFD to UYIs. Axl, Duff, Slash,Matt and even Steven, Izzy , all . Good songs. I hope Matt’s book sells. I agree with you , yeah, the guy wants to do the talk shows, signings, and stuff. Get his face out there. Bad timing because this thing is the new norm and whatever , you just deal with it as it is.  He might be waiting until next summer for the usual kind of book promoting people do. Hopefully, this thing will plateau by December and life can be really normal again.

Slash has said in many interviews that he wanted to just call the band Snakepit, but it was the record company’s idea and push to add Slash to it. For a while it was referred to as S.V.O. Snakepit (Slash’s very own).

Yeah, but iirc correctly from the book Matt seemed to think the record conpany was just an excuse for Slash when he confronted him about it and didn't really buy it.

Well, if it was an excuse, Slash kept lying to the press about it a fair bit then, to keep up appearances.

I read a lot of articles back then where Slash said it was a record company decision.
