Vicky Hamilton, a rock manager who worked with bands such as Mötley Crüe, Poison and Guns N' Roses just before they became superstars, stopped at Club Velvet at the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park last night to read from her new book, Appetite for Dysfunction.

We spoke to her backstage after her reading.
