July 11th - Steven refuses potential book deal - A New York based publishing company offered Steven a "substantial sum" for the rights to the writing collaboration between he and his mother, DeAnna. Their story depicts the struggle of a family, chronicling Steven's life from his days as a child on the streets of LA,  his rise to fame as drummer for Guns N' Roses, his subsequent firing from the band, and the dismal, downward spiral into the seedy underworld of hard drugs that followed. When it became clear that the book company simply wanted Steven to trash the band, and dig up dirt about each member, Steven refused. Deanna is currently talking with several other publishers and the book may yet see the light of day.

Related comment on Slash's official fan site, Snakepit.org, July 19, 2002:
Speaking of Steven, you might remember that Steven and his mom were writing Steven's autobiography called No Bed of Roses. GNR bandmates were incensed when they heard Steven's claims. The book seemed to quietly disappear unpublished, but Steven's mom seems to be trying to get it going again by actively seeking publishers. A recent publisher offered a great deal of money for the rights to the book, but the publisher seemed to have little interest in the parts of Steven's life before Guns. They were basically looking for a sensational book about the band and each bandmember. Steven, who DID have a life before Guns and could see where this was headed, wisely said no. His mother is said to continuing the search for a publisher. One vignette from the book that was noted on several music sites was that SLASH and Steven dabbled in male prostitution to make money. When asked, SLASH said maybe Steven did, he didn't know about that, but he (SLASH) did not. Steven and SLASH have made peace over the years, and it's doubtful anything like that would appear in any published version. SLASH?? No way!
