It’s So Easy: and other lies

Duff McKagan – Guns N Roses

51nwca3bmjl-_sx325_bo1204203200_

In 1984, at the age of twenty, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle—partly to pursue music but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In L.A. only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as “Slash.” Soon after, the most dangerous band in the world was born. Guns N’ Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide. 

In a voice that is as honest as it is indelibly his own, Duff—one of rock’s smartest and most articulate personalities—takes readers on a harrowing journey through the dark heart of one of the most notorious bands in rock-and-roll history and out the other side.

White Line Fever: The Autobiography

Lemmy – Motorhead

One of music’s most notorious frontmen leads a headbanging, voyeuristic odyssey into sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll that rivals Motley Crue’s The Dirt and Aerosmith’s Walk This Way. He made Keith Richards look like a choirboy and Mick Jagger look like a nun. And as the head of the legendary band Motorhead, he ploughed his way through so many drugs, so many women, and so much alcohol, that he gave a whole new meaning to the term Debauchery.

But through more than two decades of notorious excess, Lemmy has lived to tell the warts-and-all tale of a life lived over the edge. White Line Fever, a tour of overindulgence, metal, and the search for musical integrity, offers a sometimes hilarious, often outrageous, and always unbridled ride with the leader of the loudest rock band in the world.

“So where do we start? I remember when we did The Dirt, the Mötley CrĂĽe book, I was interviewed at The Grand Havana Room in Beverly Hills. A lot of people think I didn’t get to say much in The Dirt. It’s probably true. I didn’t read it. I’m not that big a talker. Some people can f*ckin’ talk … eat up all the oxygen in a room in no time flat. I don’t tend to run my mouth. It’s b*llshit. All those years in rehab and counseling–the talking cure? I can’t say I really got that much out of it. All that cure and I should be cured by now, don’t you think? All this talking…

But you got to admit…those days are a lot more fun to talk about…

Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith

Aerosmith

Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith is available in time for the Aerosmith’s 40th Anniversary. It’s the New York Times bestselling autobiography by the legendary rock group that lived by the motto “Anything worth doing was worth overdoing.” Aerosmith shook the music world out of its ’70s doldrums…and made living on the edge an art form. Walk This Way is the complete and candid story of their meteoric rise to fame, their near destruction due to drugs and excess, and their return to the stage as one of America’s greatest rock bands. Cowritten by respected rock journalist Stephen Davis, author of the seminal profile of Led Zeppelin, Hammer of the Gods, and with a new afterward from the band, this edition of the memoir to end all rock memoirs is the perfect  gift for you and your favorite Aerosmith fan.
