Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

    This doesn’t really do anything for me, since I’m not that much of a GNR fan – but I do acknowledge it’s a big deal for a lot of people. Personally I’m not sure that having only one really awesome all time classic record (yes, only AFD is that good) makes them worthy of all the hype and praise this press release lauds them with, but I can’t deny they are an iconic band of their era. I have a feeling this is way more about cashing in than really “getting back together”, and it will be interesting to see if they can keep it all held together for any appreciable run of shows. Hopefully Eddie is right and this will help the state of rock music in this country in general. For those of you that are excited about it, I hope it lives up to your expectations.

    BTW, with the departure of Harnell from the Skids, and Bach’s general comments of wanting to return, man, would that not be a cool twin bill? Hmmm….
