Rocker gets booked

Fans of guns n' roses may never hear a new album from the defunct band, but at least they'll be able to read about their favorite legendary rockers.

Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash (right) just sold his autobiography to HarperCollins. The British born, California-raised ax man will work with writer Anthony Bozza, who helped drummer and carouser Tommy Lee pen his memoir, Tommyland.

The manuscript is due to be delivered in the fall.

Slash, born Saul Hudson, left Guns N' Roses in 1996 following a split with group leader Axl Rose. He went on to form the band Velvet Revolver.

A HarperCollins spokeswoman confirmed Slash's deal.

Also in the works is W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of W. Axl Rose, by British rock writer Mick Wall. The book is due out in Britain in the fall and is currently making the rounds of New York publishers.

``[Guns N' Roses] is a great story, and it's not finished yet,'' says Mr. Wall's U.S. agent, Barbara Zitwer, referring to the unfinished album that Mr. Rose has been working on for years.
