New Book Titled “Victory or Death” On The Band’s “Appetite for Destruction” Album Released!
A new book titled “Victory or Death: Guns N’ Roses and The Sound of Appetite for Destruction” about Guns N’ Roses full length debut studio album has been released on Amazon. Check out the listing here and the description below!
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.

How Ozzy Recruited Duff McKagan to Play On His New Record
Andrew Watt, who played guitar and produced Ozzy Osbourne’s new upcoming album who produced and played guitar on Ozzy Osbourne’s forthcoming album, revealed how he got involved with the Prince of Darkness and recruited Guns N’ Roses icon Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith to make the record.
Ozzy will be releasing that new album “Ordinary Man” sometime this January and it came after Osbourne made a guest appearance on the hit Post Malone song “Take What You Want”, which Watt happened to produce.
Andrew recently sat down with Billboard and explained how that collaboration came to be, and also went into more details about the making of the new Ozzy Osbourne album.
Watt went on to say the following about the new Ozzy album, “The day after [the vocals for ‘Take What You Want’ were recorded], Ozzy texted me, like, ‘I want you to make an album with me.’ I was, like, that would be amazing, but can I do this? I picked up the phone and called up Chad Smith. I said, ‘Dude, Ozzy just asked me to make an album for him. Are you down to do it?’ And he said, ‘Are you kidding me? When?’ Then I called up Duff McKagan from Guns N’ Roses and he said, ‘Are you kidding me? When?’
“We wrote and recorded Ozzy’s entire album, musically, in four days. There was no premeditation. The three of us just got in my basement, put on headphones, looked at each other, and wrote 12 songs, 10 of which constitute the album. It was magic. I don’t even remember it. Then Ozzy came over to my basement to listen to the music. I played him all 10 tracks at full volume, and at the end he just goes, ‘It’s cool.’ And my heart just ‘ went into my gut. He was, like, ‘I’ll call you tomorrow.’ Stands up, gets his cane, goes upstairs. I go, ‘Oh my God, he hated it! What do I do?’
“He calls me the next day, like, ‘Okay, so when do we start writing?’ I sound like I’m making this up, but he comes over the next day, and we made Ozzy’s entire album from top to bottom, all music, guitar solos, all vocals written, in four weeks.
“It’s the proudest of anything I’ve ever been, because it brought the 12-year-old kid out of me again. Don’t get me wrong, I love the pop music that I make, but this is what I feel like I was born to do: play rock guitar. I got to be ‘ Randy Rhoads in 2019.”
