9781409167211: Last of the Giants: The True Story of Guns N' Roses

“Mick is able to weave together what can only be referred to as the most complete and accurate portrait on the band ever published. Yes it is THAT good and that well researched! . . . Thorough research and eloquent writing is a beautiful union and Wall’s successful deployment of both, coupled with the fact that he is writing about one of the most incendiary rock bands of the past thirty years, makes for an absolutely enthralling read from beginning to end. . . . Last of the Giants: The True Story of Guns N’ Roses takes you on a journey where you can not only live vicariously through their sordid exploits, but you can also get some invaluable insight into what made this band an absolute rarity.” ―Classic Rock Revisited

"Using interviews he personally conducted with members of the band, as well as archival material, Wall has assembled the most detailed portrait yet of the band." ―Uproxx

"Last of the Giants is the mad, funny, dark and often painful story of a lost band from a now-distant time."―Classic Rock Magazine

"Last of the Giants is the mad, funny, dark and often painful story of a lost band from a now-distant time.―Classic Rock Magazine

"Any story about Guns is worth reading. But when the author is Mick Wall it's absolutely essential.―Kerrang!

Guns N' Roses is what every rock band since the Rolling Stones has tried to be: dangerous. They exploded of the 1980s glam metal scene and boldly redefined rock 'n' roll for a new era.

Author Mick Wall met Guns N' Roses when the band's members lived together at the infamous "Hell House" in Los Angeles and became a part of their inner circle. Thanks to Wall's longtime friendship and connection with Guns N' Roses, he conducted exclusive interviews with all the original members and, for the first time, their original managers, who were down in the trenches with the band from 1986 to 2004. They share all-new revelations about the band's rockstar debauchery in the studio, on tour, and behind the scenes.

Last of the Giants is a celebration of Guns N' Roses: the last of the extraordinary, excessive, not-giving-a-shit rock stars.

Mick Wall is the UK's best-known rock writer. He is the author of W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose, When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography of Led Zeppelin, and Enter Night: A Biography of Metallica.

Descripción Orion Publishing Co, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many millions of words have already been written about Guns N Roses, the old line-up, the new line-up. But none of them have ever really gotten to the truth. Which is this: Guns N Roses has always been a band out of time, the Last of the Giants. They are what every rock band since the Rolling Stones has tried and nearly always failed to be: dangerous. At a time when smiling, MTV-friendly, safe-sex, just-say-no Bon Jovi was the biggest band in the world, here was a band that seemed to have leapt straight out of the coke-smothered pages of the original, golden-age, late-sixties rock scene. Live like a suicide , the band used to say when they all lived together in the Hell House, their notorious LA home. And this is where Mick Wall first met them, and became part of their inner circle, before famously being denounced by name by Axl Rose in the song Get in the Ring . But this book isn t about settling old scores. Written with the clear head that 25 years later brings you, this is a celebration of Guns N Roses the band, and of Axl Rose the frontman who really is that thing we so desperately want him to be: the last of the truly extraordinary, all-time great, no apologies, no explanations, no giving-a-shit rock stars. The last of his kind. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29781409167211
