Steven Adler

My Appetite for Destruction (Book)

Harper Collins

5 out of 5 stars

I was hesitant after personally experiencing the wasted mess that Steven Adler was a few years back. I now say this is the best book of the many I’ve read about Guns N’ Roses. A much lighter and fun read than Slash’s interesting but dense tome. Also, on page 163 Adler makes the most dead-on diagnosis of Axl Rose’s demeanor that I’ve ever heard.


War at the Warfield (DVD)

American Video

4 out of 5 stars

Besides different set lists and maybe a different backdrop, a Slayer show is basically a Slayer show. That said, out of the three Slayer live shows just released on DVD, War at the Warfield is easily the best. Maybe it’s the historical venue but the band puts on a performance that tops their normal high energy assaults. Still Reigning and Live Intrusion are also available.

The Carter Family

The Carter Family III

Cash Productions

4 out of 5 stars

This continuation of the Carter/Cash musical legend is a pleasant romp that reminds the listener that good music comes from the heart, not a computer. Hints of country, bluegrass and Americana all swirl together here in a peaceful co-existence.
