Get Lit: Slash's Book on Guns N' Roses

We never had Slash pegged as the literary type—basically, because we liked to imagine him spending all his spare time taming wild snakes and polishing his top-hat collection.

Guess we were wrong.

Last week, the Velvet Revolver guitarist revealed he was hard at work on his as yet untitled autobiography, which is expected to hit stores in November.

Naturally, we called him on the phone for more details.

He said we could expect a bunch of stuff about his years with Guns 'N' Roses, but not necessarily because he was feeling nostalgic on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Appetite for Destruction.

"I never wanted to write a book, because it would be too final," Slash explained. "The only reason I wrote it is because a lot of the stuff I was reading and seeing about the band got pretty frustrating. I just had to straighten out some s--t."

The book is coauthored by former Rolling Stone contributor Anthony Bozza, who also helped Tommy Lee on his tell-all tome, Tommyland.

"It almost reads like a journal, except for the fact that I never wrote anything down," Slash said. "It was a hard book to make, because I was pretty f--ked up from 1980 to 2000-something. I really had to dig deep to try and remember a lot of s--t."

Now that sounds like the Slash we know and love.

With this, Nikki Sixx's The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star and Keith Richards' forthcoming memoir, our book club is going to be pretty busy for a while.
