Deanna Adler, the mother of famed Guns N' Roses drummer Steve Adler, is putting the finishing touches on a tell-all book about her son's rise and fall "in the most exciting rock band of all time."

Deanna traces Steven's life from the cradle to his ultimate rocker destiny. She relives her son's life in the world of sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. The name of the book will be "Sweet Child Of Mine" (formerly "No Bed Of Roses").

HarperCollins is tentatively scheduled to release "Sweet Child Of Mine" in May/June 2011 (exact date to be announced).

Deanna Adler appeared on the second season of "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew", on which Steven was a cast member. During the season's episode five, Dr. Drew, Dr. Sophy and Steven sat down for a meeting with Deanna in a what was described as "a tense whirlwind of accusations, denials and resentment. Steven is so flustered that he storms out of the room, leaving the many issues between he and Deanna unresolved, possibly forever."

You can see Deanna Adler's appearance on "Celebrity Rehab" at this location. (Deanna Adler first appears around the 19-minute mark.)

"Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" is a reality television show airing on the cable network VH1 that chronicles a group of celebrities as they are treated for alcohol and drug addiction by Dr. Drew Pinsky and his staff at the Pasadena Recovery Center in Pasadena, California.

    but Steven Adler already wrote a tell all book and you'd think he knows his life (despite how high he was ALL the time) better than his mother.

    Holy.....this is just a bit much. If the five original guys made autobio's it would be alright, a lot of the same stories but many more different views. Steven Adler's mum? What does she have to do with anything to do with the band?

    I wish that photo of her was bigger. I'm sure I can see dollar signs in her eyes.

    Did anyone else literally fall out of their chair laughing when they read this article?

    Funny how Steven has rarely mentioned his mother... Not being in the US I never had the (dis)pleasure of Celebrity Rehab, but even 20+ years ago recall him mentioning his grandmother in a find light rather than his maternal mother...
