Watch You Bleed: The Saga of Guns N' Roses is a rock biography written by Stephen Davis, published by Gotham Press and released August 26, 2008. It chronicles the story of US hard rock band Guns N Roses from their earliest days up to the year of publication. The book was received with mixed-to-negative receptions from readers and is well known to contain substantial factual errors.

Background

Watch You Bleed documents the history of Guns N Roses from the earliest childhood days of singer W. Axl Rose and his lifelong friendship with guitarist Izzy Stradlin to the formation of the band, their years at the top of the music world and eventual downfall. Most of the book is dedicated to the band's early period from 1985 to the release of the Use Your Illusion albums in 1991. There is some charting of the former members' later careers with bands like Velvet Revolver and also of Rose's efforts to record and release the Chinese Democracy album, finally released on November 23, 2008.
