Just like the thread title says:

First performance since 1993! Along with "Estranged", the band dusted off its second UYI song in 2011, in its 20th anniversary.

For those who say that these are not the real Guns N Roses, I agree but:

The Use Your Ilussion band were also NOT the Guns N Roses: Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin were not there anymore.

The original Beatles had Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe, so The Beatles as we know them are not the real Beatles.

Same for Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and... Queen no less.

So in conclusion, these ARE the Guns N Roses. Different line-up, but GNR in the end. ;-)

That's right, the REAL Guns & Roses is an out-of-shape guy who used to be able to sing and 5 or 6 people that can currently stand being around him.

Besides, you can't name all of Dexy's Midnight Runners, so take it or leave it!!!

==========================

Not a good comparison.  Neither of those guys played on a Beatles album.

A turd by any other name will still stink just as bad.

Meanwhile, Slash played it throughout his recent solo tour featuring Myles Kennedy on vocals, and it sounds much better than pretty much everything Guns n' Roses' been playing recently:
