This is just despicable. The mother of Steven Adler has gotten a book deal with HarperCollins. They will be releasing the book “Sweet Child Of Mine: How I Lost My Son to Guns N’ Roses,” a tell-all book from Adler’s mom Deanna. The book hits stores November 1.
The book tells Deanna’s “story of heartache and strength as [she] stood by her son at his most troubled times.” I don’t know…I watched Adler on that show, and he fucking hated her, right? Didn’t want anything to do with her? She kicked him out of her home before he even had pubes, and she’s writing a book about being a mother?
It just bothers me that being the mom of someone famous gets you a book deal — yet being a writer with some solid fucking ideas does not.
According to a press release, the book is mom’s “stunning book about raising her son, Steven Adler, the drummer for Guns N’ Roses, and the travails of keeping him alive and herself sane.”
The book contains “the memoirs of a mother’s love for an infamous son whose phenomenal success is only surpassed by his astounding capacity for self destruction. Her pages are filled with moments of profound joy and crippling heartbreak.”
