has vowed not to focus on Guns N' Roses
' troubles in his upcoming autobiography - insisting the book won't be a "tell-all
The band underwent several line-up changes over the years - drummer Stever Adler
was fired in 1990 after his drug habit spiralled out of control and guitarist Slash
quit the band in 1996 following a series of rows with frontman Axl Rose
left in 1997 and went onto form Loaded in 2000 before re-teaming with Slash
to create Velvet Revolver
But he's determined not to lift the lid on the tensions between his former bandmates in his new book.
In his column on SeattleWeekly.com, he writes, "I want to make clear that this book is not a GN'R (Guns N' Roses) 'tell-all' or some other such 'rock' book. Sure, I will touch on all of that, as it is part of my story, but only just a part of it.
"It will be a story of an ordinary guy who met with extraordinary circumstances, and the circumnavigation through these situations. If you have been a reader of my column, then you get the general idea of my headspace. I WILL be writing this myself, thick or thin.
The book is set for release next year.
