Guns N’ Roses Week – The Movie

Guns N’ Roses Week – The Movie

While I was reading all the GnR books for #GnRWeek I was thinking to myself how the origins of the band would make such a great movie. How the members all meet up. Living together in a crappy apartment on sunset strip. Playing early gigs….

Guns N’ Roses Week – Reckless Road and other books

Guns N’ Roses Week – Reckless Road and other books

I had read the previous four books already for #GnRWeek and then I only discovered Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses and the Making of Appetite for Destruction by Marc Canter last week. So I managed to squeeze this book in just in time. I got…

Guns N’ Roses Week – Axl & Izzy

Guns N’ Roses Week – Axl & Izzy

It was never my intention in #GnRWeek to actually do full band member blog post profiles. It just turns out that I read three autobiographies of the original lineup and now it feels strange not writing anything about Axl and Izzy just because they haven’t…

Guns N’ Roses Week – Chinese Democracy

Guns N’ Roses Week – Chinese Democracy

The last album we look at for #GnRWeek is Chinese Democracy. This came out in 2008 and I’ll be honest, I had only listened to it once before this week. I just didn’t think I had heard hugely good things about it and in my…

GnRWeek – Top Ten Guns N’ Roses Music Videos

GnRWeek – Top Ten Guns N’ Roses Music Videos

On Sunday I’ll be listing my Top Ten Guns N’ Roses songs for #GnRWeek but today I’m looking at the music videos. So this list isn’t based on the songs themselves. It’s a factor of course, but I’m looking at the total package here. The…

Guns N’ Roses Week – “The Spaghetti Incident?”

Guns N’ Roses Week – “The Spaghetti Incident?”

The next Guns N’ Roses album that we look at for #GnRWeek is “The Spaghetti Incident?”. Released in 1993, it’s a compilation of cover versions of older punk or hard rock songs. Duff is listed as a producer on this album, which is cool. Coming…

Guns N’ Roses Week – Duff’s Book

Guns N’ Roses Week – Duff’s Book

The next book I looked at for #GnRWeek was Duff’s book, entitled “It’s So Easy (and other Lies)”. Nice title. I read this one on Kindle, hence why I don’t have a photograph of the front and back cover. Here’s the Amazon cover though. I’ll…

GnR Week – Guns 2 Roses Tribute Act

GnR Week – Guns 2 Roses Tribute Act

This post, during #GnRWeek, was meant to be something a bit more than this. I wanted to write a review of the Guns N’ Roses tribute act called Guns 2 Roses. I’ve been trying to see them in Southend-on-Sea where I live for the last…

Guns N’ Roses Week – Slash’s Book

Guns N’ Roses Week – Slash’s Book

After reading Steven Adler’s book I wanted to read Slash’s next, because Steven and Slash had such a close relationship in the early days. So #GnRWeek continues with Slash’s autobiography. Like most autobiographies there is a lot about Slash’s youth at the start. Sometimes this…

Guns N’ Roses Week – Use Your Illusion II

Guns N’ Roses Week – Use Your Illusion II

Yesterday, as part of #GnRWeek, I wrote about Use Your Illusion I. Naturally I’m now talking about Use Your Illusion II today. Both these albums were released in 1991. The first album is a more rocky affair whereas this second one is slightly more intellectual…
