GUNS ‘N ‘DETH: NEW BIOS COMING FROM STEVEN ADLER AND DAVE MUSTAINEThat’s right, folks, new autobiographies are headed to your nearest bookstore and online retailers from former Guns ‘n Roses drummer/VH1 house boy, Steven Adler and Megadeth mastermind/Metallica thorn, Dave Mustaine.

Adler, renowned not only for being the original drummer for Guns N’ Roses, but also for getting shit-canned by the band for being too much of a druggie, releases his allegedly self-penned account on June 22, entitled My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses.

I’m looking forward to Adler’s tale of his fall from rock ‘n roll grace, as I considered his druggen misadventures to be the lone highlight from Andy McCoy’s otherwise dreadful Hanoi Rocks tell-all, Sheriff McCoy.

Meanwhile, Dave Mustaine’s autobiography (co-written by Joe Layden of the New York Times), titled, no surprise, Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir, hits the bookshelves on April 13. Dave had originally planned on calling the book, Hello Me… Meet the Real Me, the classic opening line from his 1992 track, “Sweating Bullets.” Word has it that the book may also be titled Wake Up Dead.

Dave Mustaine, like Adler, was also famously shit-canned — in his case, Metallica — way before most of you were even a gleam in your daddies’ eyes.

I wonder if Dave’s publishers are mad-scrambling after former disgruntled bass player Dave Ellefson recently rejoined the ‘deth camp?

Interestingly, Steven Adler’s mother, Deanna, also gets in on the rock star bio mix with her book, Sweet Child of Mine: A Memoir of Steven Adler, co-written by Lawrence J. Spagnola. It hits the shelves May 25, before her son’s book comes out. Hmmm… maybe firing across the bow first?

In the below video, Dave Mustaine talks about firing Jay Reynolds (former guitarist for Malice) for being too fucked up to perform in the studio — a story from his autobiography:
