After over a decade of work, the band released their follow-up album, Chinese Democracy, in 2008. Their mid-to-late eighties and early nineties years have been described by individuals in the music industry as the period in which “they brought forth a hedonistic rebelliousness and revived the punk attitude-driven hard rock scene, reminiscent of the early Rolling Stones.” The Use Your Illusion Tour was a promotional tour for the albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, although due to the scale of the tour, the term “promotional tour” is

Slash – Paradise City (live at MTV Clasic Launch – Melbourne 2010)

My guitar God, up close and loud. This was a complete surprise for me, I knew that Slash was in town and I tried the impossible so I could go see him, but then I heard it was a private show with limited VIP tickets which were already given to the media people. I lost merely all hope until my best friend in Australia called me and told me over the phone: dude, guess what? you’re so obsessed and love that Slash guitar guy so much it annoys me, so I called a friend of mine, told him your story (over live radio) and got you 4 tickets for tonight’s show. I then ran home to change my crapped underwear, grabbed my camera and struggled my way to the front of the stage. One of the best nights in my life. I now can die, happy 🙂 ***Thank you Andrew Lee Gung, you rock man!

gnrplanet.blogspot.com At a time when pop was dominated by dance music and pop metal, Guns N’ Roses brought raw, ugly rock & roll crashing back into the charts. They were not nice boys; nice boys don’t play rock & roll. They were ugly, misogynist, violent; they were also funny, vulnerable, and occasionally sensitive, as their breakthrough hit “Sweet Child O’ Mine” showed. While Slash and Izzy Stradlin ferociously spit out dueling guitar riffs worthy of Aerosmith or the Stones, Axl Rose screeched out his tales of sex, drugs, and apathy in the big city; bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler were a limber rhythm section that kept the music loose and powerful. Guns N’ Roses’ music was basic and gritty, with a solid hard, bluesy base; they were dark, sleazy, dirty, and honest — everything that good hard rock and heavy metal should be. Guns N’ Roses released their first EP in in 1986, which led to a contract with Geffen; the following year, the band released their debut album, Appetite for Destruction. They started to build a following with their numerous live shows, but the album didn’t start selling until almost a year later, when MTV started playing “Sweet Child o’ Mine.” Soon, the album shot to number one and Guns N’ Roses became one of the biggest bands in the world. By the end of 1988, they released GN’ R Lies, which paired four new, acoustic-based songs with their first EP. Guns N’ Roses began to work on the follow-up to Appetite at the end of 1990. In October
