Inence through the debauchery and stellar chart success of the American west coast's Guns N' Roses Full descripti. Co to była za biografiaOczywiście nie wykluczam tego że moje malutkie zainteresowanie cięższymi brzmieniami i delikatna obsesja na punkcie Guns n' Roses zapoczątkowana w wakacje może rzutować na moją opinię o tej książce Jednak jako historyczny świr i maniak Tudrów przeczytałam w życiu sporo biografii A ta była napisana w bardzo dobry sposób Ten gatunek charakteryzuje się raczej suchym wyliczaniem faktów wzbogaconych o ciekawsze anegdotki z życia danej osoby Tu miałam wrażenie że to raczej anegdotki były przetykane suchymi faktami Książka czyta się sama nie mam pojęcia kiedy ją przeczytałam Dowiedziałam się masy nowych faktów o Slashu i kapelach w których grał ponieważ trochę ich było w dodatku bardzo doceniam dopisek z marca tego roku autorstwa Roberta Filipowskiego Żałuję że ta książka byłą taka krótka bo chętnie poczytałabym trochę o koncercie ku pamięci Freddy'ego czy współpracy gitarzysty z Michaelem Jacksonem ale i tak wystawiam maksymalną ocenę Uważam że dla fanów rocka Gunsów czy samego Slasha to pozycja obowiązkowa ale nawet jeśli ktoś nie do końca czuje w duszy takie brzmienia może ją przeczytać aby zobaczyć jak powinna być napisana dobra biografia Bo tu nawet nie chodzi o samą tematykę książka broni się sama chociażby stylem autora co jest imponujące

Paul Stenning has written a number of rock music books over the years mostly those of bands rather than individuals This biography of Slash looks to be his first attempt at telling the story of a particular band member and if it's anything to go by I certainly won't be reading any of the others he may produceSlash has been an iconic figure for many years ever since Guns 'N' Roses hit the rock music scene with a resounding crash back in the latter part of the 1980s Not only was he a great guitarist but with a distinctive look thanks to a large mess of dark curly hair his top hat and ever present Marlboro and bottle of Jack Daniels He had trouble with drink drugs and his relationship with Axl Rose Guns 'N' Roses lead singer After Guns 'N' Roses Slash played with a couple of other groups and is still recording as a member of Velvet RevolverThe book covers Slash's life from his early days as a child in Stoke through his move to America and his guitar playing career right up to the present Unfortunately it fails to deal with much of his life outside the music industry in any great depth His childhood in particular is touched on only very briefly and the book provides no real insight into the way he was growing up Given that there are some potentially uite interesting aspects in his younger days like his family moving from Stoke to America and his mother briefly dating David Bowie information on these things and how they affected Slash in later life would have been very welcomeThe one part that is covered in a fair amount of detail is Slash's career as part of Guns 'N' Roses as this was by far the most successful part of his life at least professionally Again whilst this is often fascinating information about how they got together and their early days as a band it's all largely skimmed over This part of the book has as much to do with the band itself as it does about Slash personally although the sections where the deteriorating relationships between band members do involve him although most of those situations had to do with Axl than with SlashWhat I suspect is the major problem with this book is that it's an unofficial and unauthorised biography which means that the author has not spoken directly to Slash or to many people associated with him whilst writing the book There are plenty of uotes from Slash and from people who surrounded him throughout the text but these are mostly referenced to other sources mostly websites and magazines There are a couple of surprising moments such as finding Slash uoted on a pregnancy website talking about his children but this does appear to be a book largely collated from information which has been in the public domain for a whilePart of the other side of things that annoyed me was that there was uite a lot of the author's personal opinion within the book especially when it comes to Slash's work Wherever the author is talking about a particular album he goes through it in a manner that would be better suited to a Dooyoo or Ciao review not a published biography Whilst personal opinion is certainly a valid form of expression it doesn't seem to feel uite right having a place within the pages of a biographyThe book only succeeds in raising any level of interest in me because the subject has led a pretty interesting life and because I've been a big fan of two of the major groups Slash has been involved in The book talks about events that are part of my own memories but it concentrates entirely on information that already exists in the public domain and offers no new insights at all Indeed the only thing that Stenning has really done here is taken the time and effort that escape most people in going through and putting all this information together in one place About the only thing that came as even a minor revelation to me was the discovery that without his famous top hat Slash is exactly the same height as I am When something this minor is the main surprise in a book it suggests there's not a huge amount going on within the pagesA book this simply written and this lacking in new information would be a rip off at any price I borrowed the copy I read from a friend and I still think I was overcharged Personally I would feel that the nest way of getting the most out of Slash is to play his records rather than to read this bookThis review may also appear in whole or in part under my name at any or all of wwwciaocouk wwwthebookbagcouk wwwgoodreadscom wwwcouk and wwwdooyoocouk

Biographies can be a great way of getting to know someone you admire or you know very little about This one just didn't work for getting to know SlashIt could have been a Wikipedia entry for the amount of in depth material it has It borrows uotes from magazines heavily and not always ones that match the context of the preceding paragraphs It was almost funny to read about Slash's love life right at the end without it being mentioned in the vast majority of the book It reminded me of a copy and paste project that a 14 year old could do in school I doubt there is any original research done and it shows If you are a fan of Slash then avoid thisIf you want to know about his life and career then look elsewhere
