There are many people who ask the real story of one of the greatest rock bands. Guns N' Roses. Well Here You G
GNR formed in 1987 as a small band in Los Angeles. The band was created by two bands. Axl Roses L.A. Guns and Izzy Stradlin's Hollywood Roses. THe agreement lead to the lay off of some members. The out come became Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, Duff "Rose" Mckagan, Steven Adler, and Slash. They came out with Appetite for Destruction in 1987 with 3 singles, Sweet Child O' Mine, Welcome to the Jungle, and Paradise City.
Later they released GNR Lies in 1988 with the single Patience.
Sadly Steven Adler was fired for his drug problems and GNR hired Matt Sorumon drums.
Then GNR released the double set Use your Illusion 1 and 2 with the singles
Dont CRy, Live and Let Die, (CD 1) and Knocking on Heavens door, Civil War, You could me mine, and Yesterdays (CD2).
Now the band was having a little trouble and Izzy Stradlin had dropped out in 1993. The same year GNR released The Spaghetti Incident, featuring the singles Since I Dont Have You and Aint It Fun.
The band went down hill and they recorded their last song together, Sympathy For The Devil which is now featured on the GNR Greatest Hits CD.
In the next 3 years, Slash, Duff, and Matt left the band with behind the only remaining member W. Axl Rose. GNR wasn't finished. Axl hired more members to fill in and they immediately started on their next album, Chinese Democracy. Slash created his own band, Slashs Snakepit, and also Slash's Blues Ballers. Izzy was goin in and out of bands. Duff was also in Slash's music projects. Later on Slash and Izzy met again in a gig. They started messing around and eventually made the new band of 2003 Velvet Revolver. WIth Duff as Bass Guitar (leving his drumming behind on GNR) Slash and Izzy guitar, and MAtt Sorum drums. They now needed a singer. They had their own little American Idol and Ex-Stone temple Pilot Scott Weiland took the job. Now Velvet Revolver have released their new album "Comtraband" with the new single Slither. They're still going places as we speak and GNR is still working on Chinese democracy today. < Axl Rose
