This book has apparently been pushed back to March 2022.

I hope it gets updated and more stuff gets added in. It's been delayed for over a year it seems.Huh right?

I have a hard time believing that Duff said Frank couldn't play. Matt may be a better drummer, and I have no doubts that Axl had no inclination to remove Frank, but that I don't believe. I also don't believe that he had that level of animosity towards Izzy.

Could be he was just telling Matt what he wanted to hear. Sounds like it was an awkward couple of meetings where Matt was putting pressure on Duff and making him uncomfortable; not just casual lunch between friends. Duff gains nothing by being confrontational with the guy. Tell him he's great but it's out of my hands and get out of there. As for the Izzy comment, they've probably all said that at one time or another. We know there was tension between Izzy and the rest of the guys at the time.

Ali

frankly, I can't see any good reason why he would lie about it.

Because he's trying to portray himself in a better light, both as a drummer, and as someone who was wronged by Axl's lack of desire to fire someone who had been a loyal band member for a decade?

I'm not sure Matt needs to be portrayed in a better light, right or wrong for
what we know he was fired by Axl for supporting Slash, which is loyalty by definition
(not to the good guy if he wanted to stay in the band  hihi ) and as a drummer he
is praised for his qualities by musicians & the general public so I don't
see why he would feel the urge to glorify himself that much...

what I think is Duff said what he believed at that particular moment and when
you listen to interviews you have indeed the feeling that it took a little longer
for the guys to adapt to Frank's style
