Guns N' Roses


Vocalist Axl Rose (real name William Bruce Rose Jr.) and guitarist friend Izzie Stradlin came to Los Angeles from Lafayette, Indiana in the early 1980s. Axl was involved in several bands, including Hollywood Rose, where Izzy played with him, and LA Guns, which included guitarist Tracy Guns.

In March 1985, Guns and Rose formed Guns N 'Roses, which included Izzy Stradlin from Hollywood Rose, and drummer Rob Gardner and bassist Ole Beich from LA Guns, who was soon replaced by Duff McKagan. (Duff McKagan). The band's musical style was a mixture of rock, hard rock, blues, punk.

While touring Seattle, Tracy Guns and Rob Gardner were unable to participate in the first concert, and then Rose invited guitarist Saul Slash Hudson and drummer Steven Adler to perform with them. In early 1986, they became permanent members of the group and a "classic" line-up was formed: Axl Rose (vocals), Slash (lead guitar), Izzy Stradlin (rhythm guitar), Duff McKagan (bass guitar), Stephen Adler (drums) ...

In December 1986, the group released the mini-album Live?! * @ Like a Suicide with their own money, creating their own independent company UZI Suicide Records for this. Of the four tracks on the album, only two were of their own - "Reckless Life" and "Move To The City". The other two are Rose Tatoo's Nice Boys and Mama Kin by Aerosmith. Despite the fact that screams, whistles and applause are heard on the recording, the musicians later admitted that the recording was in fact made in the studio, and the noise from the "live" concert was simply superimposed. Two years later, all four tracks were reissued as part of the GN 'R Lies album.

The album "Appetite for Destruction" was released in the United States on July 21, 1987. A video clip was filmed for the opening song "Welcome To The Jungle" and it was released in the United States as a single. The album and single didn’t see much success at first until David Geffen, founder of Geffen Records, convinced MTV executives to put “Welcome To The Jungle” on the night air. And although the video clip was shown at an unattractive time, at about 5 o'clock in the morning, viewers noticed it and began to call and order it.

The second single from this album, released in the US, was "Sweet Child O 'Mine". It became a hit in the summer of 1988. In the wake of this success, the single "Welcome To The Jungle" was also reissued.

By the time the next single "Paradise City" was released, Appetite For Destruction had reached number one on the Billboard charts . To date, the circulation of "Appetite For Destruction" exceeds 30 million copies, or rather about 32 million copies.
