About the author
You mean Michael Balzary [laughs]? We've known each other since Bancroft Junior High School. We also went to Fairfax High School. He used to play trumpet for my grandmother. We all went to same schools together, ditched eighth grade together, grew up in the same neighborhoods together, put our bands together. That was a really great time, the '70s and '80s.
It was the end of the real rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Things changed, of course, in the '90s, when everybody decided to go on stage looking like a guy who worked at Burger King. You're pretty candid about some unfortunate run-ins you had with older gay men when you were younger.
Why did you decide to talk about the sexual abuse? It was keeping me from moving on with my life.
With the drugs and alcohol, I'd keep relapsing because I'd take care of one problem, but not the main problem. It's not an easy thing to say, and I thought if I said those words out loud, people would think bad of me. But it was the complete opposite. They understood and cared, and I felt relieved. So much of the making of Appetite for Destruction is part of rock 'n' roll legend. Any interesting tidbits about the album, or the other records, you'd like to share?
The live part was us playing live in the studio. And Slash got all these fireworks and lit them up in metal buckets. Adriana was one of the strippers we lived with.

There were about five or six strippers that we lived with in this building. She was just the girl I was fucking for that month. She wasn't the only girl. Hey, I was 19 or 20, walking around with a hard-on and fucking anything that I possibly could. Plus, there's a lot of booze and drugs, and when you're in that state of mind, you'll put your pee-pee in anything. You mention wanting to tour with Stryper early on in the band's career.
Seems kind of odd considering they were a Christian band. That would've been a great package: Satan and God together. They were getting pussy just like every other rock 'n' roller. Don't kid yourself.

How do you ultimately feel about being asked to leave GNR for your drug addiction considering the other members were also notorious addicts? I'm sorry that it went the way it did. But I'm grateful for the experience we had. I'm glad the five of us are still alive.
And I'm hoping those goofballs read my book, especially Axl. I'm hoping he'll see what a special thing we have. It takes time for all wounds to heal. And there's been enough time. We were five brothers, and all of Axl's managers and lawyers can never take away what he have. Not surprisingly, you talk about your contentious relationship with Axl.
How do you feel about what he's done with the band over the years? Any misconceptions about him you'd like clear up? He's driving the name Guns n' Roses into the toilet.prednegato.tk

He should've called his band W. Axl Rose, which would've been perfect for him. But he's not an asshole.

He's very bright, intelligent and loving. And he's a ginger, so he doesn't tan very well. He's gotten a bad rap. He's done a couple of goofy things. But compared to the millions of wonderful things that he's done, it doesn't compare. He's been marred for those one or two little things.
