The former guitarist of Guns N' Roses will launch memoir 'My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses' which tells about his drug problem and also his time during with the band.
Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler will expose his controversial history with Axl Rose's band and his struggle to stay sober in a new tell-all memoir. Adler was fired from Guns N' Roses in 1989 before Rose famously fell out with guitarist Slash - amid rumors the drummer's drug use was hampering his performance.
In 2009, Adler was ordered by a judge to check into rehab following a 2008 felony drug charge. His battle with addiction was chronicled on U.S. reality TV show "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew and its spin-off series "Sober House".
The star will now document his troubled rock 'n' roll lifestyle in print when he releases "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", according to HarperCollins.com. The book is scheduled to hit shelves on June 22.
