GnR Week – Top Ten Guns N’ Roses Songs

GnR Week – Top Ten Guns N’ Roses Songs

So here we are. We’ve reached the end of #GnRWeek. I’ve listened to albums, read books, watched documentaries and then seen my favourite band live for the first ever time. All things need to come to an end though, and I’ll end the week here…

GnR Week – Guns N’ Roses Tour 2017 London Review

GnR Week – Guns N’ Roses Tour 2017 London Review

So, it happened. I went to a Guns N’ Roses gig. This was the whole reason I have been doing #GnRWeek, to build up some excitement for myself around the gig. I saw them live on Friday night. But let’s backtrack… When I was 16…

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…
