    The Guns N Roses Legacy.

    Post  That Guy on Wed Mar 03, 2010 6:28 pm

    Guns N' Roses (sometimes abbreviated as GN'R or GnR) is an American rock band. The band formed in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band, led by frontman and co-founder Axl Rose (born William Bruce Rose), has gone through numerous line-up changes and controversies since its formation; the current lineup comprises vocalist Rose, guitarists Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, DJ Ashba and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman. The band has released six studio albums, three EPs and one live album during its career.

    The band has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, including over 46 million in the United States. The band's 1987 major label debut album Appetite for Destruction has sold in excess of 28 million copies worldwide and reached number one on the United States Billboard 200. In addition, the album charted three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Sweet Child o' Mine" which reached number one. The 1991 albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II debuted on the two highest spots on the Billboard 200 and have sold a combined 14 million copies in the United States alone and 35 million worldwide. 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."
    Some of their most famous songs are Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O Mine, Patience, November Rain, and (A cover of Bob Dylan, especially mentioned for Chibi) Knocking on Heaven's Door.

    The original lineup of GNR disbanded leaving Axl all alone. Slash formed Slash's Snakepit and then he joined Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan along with singer (Of Stone Temple Pilots) Scott Weiland to form Velvet Revolver. Velvet Revolver is considered the 'new' GNR, or GNR without Axl.

    I recommend you check them out ASAP.

    If it wasn't for the druken fights, arguments, and all that other good stuff, the band might still be together today. I love the band but was deeply disappointed with Chinesee Democracy. Would rather blast Lady Gaga in my ear for 5 hours on end, while I get deepthroated by a billy goat, who's dick is slathered in meatloaf diarrhea.

    You gotta remember though, Axl is the only remaining member of GNR that was there from the start. Thats why I think Velvet Revolver is a better Guns than Guns is.

    Velvet revolver is a great band (SLITHER <3333) but can't compete with the classics of GnR. Sweet Child o Mine, Paradise City, November Rain, ect. You can't turn on a rock radio station without hearing them atleast 3 times a day.

    OH! In that case, I agree. The band is not the same, as they were in their glory days.

    I didn't really like much of there music, the only one that I did really liked would be Welcome to the Jungle, that was a brilliant song.
