I often wonder what would have happened to GNR if the band could have gotten along better, but this album (appetite) for sure changed the direction of music in the mid 1980's.

Happy Birthday to the total hot mess.

/me backs out the door gently closing it behind him all while choking on the overpowering stench of hair-spray and tripping over hairdressers and ego on the way....

Sorry, I never was good at CHINESE WHISPERS!


ETA I did star and flag you for the effort, I'm sure it was well meant.

I was into them as they grew popular which was after Sweet Child. It was all Slayer, Kreator and Megadeth for a few of us while other friends were into KISS and cock rock. I tried hard not to like GnR and got won over anyway.

Remember the 'Power Hour?' Was it 2-4 on Friday nights? They'd play all types of rock and metal and GnR videos were always on.

This is why the *56* is unexpected. We were kids back then and Axl was a young man in the videos. Hard to believe he's 56. The passage of time T-bones us sometimes and this is one of those moments.

Remember the 'Power Hour?'

It rings a bell but those years were a crazy period in my life , much Mad Dog 20/20 and Thunderbird wine was drunk.

Yes indeed. Newcastle Brown, L&Bs and whisky.


ETA - I had this on Jap import vinyl when it was bloody hard to get 'rare' records.

Remember when "Deadpool" with Clint Eastwood came out and they had somebody in place of AXL singing Welcome to the Jungle?I was like WTF?

I've stopped smoking (again) for a few months and been craving a smoke all week. If they still sold 10s I'd buy a box. Got a strong urge to get that feeling when the smoke rasps down into the lungs


There are still dodgy shops selling 'singles' to kids. £8-10 for a box.

Wow Time stands still when you're not paying attention doesn't it. It was a great band back in the day. Still is.
