Book ‘Victory or Death – Guns N’ Roses and the sound of Appetite For Destruction’ now available in English
A new book titled Victory or Death – Guns N’ Roses and the sound of Appetite For Destruction has been penned by author Simöne Gall and a new US edition is now available for purchase.
The book was previously released in the Italian language and is now available in English.
Amazon indicates: “When Guns N’ Roses released Appetite For Destruction in 1987, no one could have predicted the impact it would have on rock music. And yet, despite its enormous commercial success, with 30 million copies shifted, Appetite For Destruction still stands as one of the darkest, most decadent albums ever released.
Fuelled by a detailed chronological narration splitted into several time jumps, Victory or Death mainly focuses on the technical and musical aspects related to Appetite For Destruction, but also aims to investigate the background of what can be considered, in a way, the greatest debut album of all time, whose inviolability can be compared to that of other masterpieces such as Dark Side Of The Moon or Led Zeppelin IV. The volume includes a brief guide to the 20 ideal post-Appetite records, carefully selected by the author himself.”
