In 1984, at the age of 20, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle - partly to pursue music, but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then-decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In LA only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as "Slash." Soon after, the most dangerous band in the world was born. Guns N' Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

30 years ago (when I was 7), I heard sweet child o mine on the radio and Guns n Roses has been my all time favorite band since. Hearing the band's rise to fame has been extra special because Guns was always such a major part of my life. Duff was/is my fave (I mean, I wore a dog collar and a lock around my neck lol), and hearing his story has just made him that much more awesome. Highly recommend. I just wish he had read it for audible 😉

In the long awaited follow-up to the highly praised novel She's Come Undone, Dominick Birdsey must come to terms with himself, as well as with the schizophrenic twin brother he has spent his life both protecting and resenting.

This is one of my all time favorite books. Too bad this abridged version leaves out half the story and I am not exaggerating. I'm so shocked at how much they left out I'm going to try to contact the author. The only positive is that now I know to NEVER listen to the abridged version of ANYTHING! The definition of abridged is to "shorten a story without losing the sense of the story." There is no story with what audible has done to it. At least they refunded my credit.
