Author says Axl Rose won't self-destruct i. .... Danny Sugerman, who wrote a biography of the Doors, also has written a book about Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction (St. Martins, $19.95) and while he catalogs considerable excess Featuring: Butch Spence therein, he has an encouraging prognosis for Axl Rose fans: He thinks the big guy's SOUND m Controlling Pests in your Home and weeft's Garden $9 Mfr.

The name's the same, and the vocal style is the same one that made him a pop star. In fact, nothing much about the man has changed since DITCC " "Down in the Boon-01 1 1 J docks" became a hit in J 1966. Royal likes to believe his resurgence (as opposed to comeback) is due in part to his "new-found home" in country music, which has changed more than he has in the past 20 years. Royal's brand of '60s pop-rock appears to be the new wave of country in the '90s. He is ensconced among Atlantic Records artists and has produced three LPs for the label, Tell It Like It Is, Looking Ahead and The Royal Treatment. That last one earned Royal his first-ever certi-fied-gold album. Nashville and country music also seem to be kinder to an artist whom pop might see as a bit past his prime.

He knows about Rose's tantrums. He knows Rose has a promptness problem. He knows about the band's problems with drugs and finishing records, and he knows Rose can act like a jerk. But Rose knows that, too, Sugerman says, noting that Rose has seen a shrink to sort some of this stuff out. "You look at Axl and his eyes are clear," Sugerman says. "He tells you when he's angry, which is good. You wouldn't want anyone to suppress the anger he has. "We're watching him go through hell. He's not enjoying this, either. He's not reveling in being a rock star. He's a guy who's trying to write songs. Like Jim Morrison, he's working to be an artist. He's trying to be real." "With some artists," Sugerman says, "the same thing that makes them great can eat them alive." Stay tuned. Billy Joe is back, getting the Royal treatment again Six or seven years ago, Billy Joe Royal couldn't even give away a demo tape. "I don't know how something like that happens," Royal says.
