Appetite is one of my favorite albums of all time. Ranks right up there with Cracked Rear View and a few others. One of those albums you can just listen to without ever hitting the "skip" button.

But not necessarily something you want to listen to with the family.

Here's some G'n'R trivia for you.

The orgasmic sounds on that song are actually real. On a recent interview with Slash I read that Axl brought a girl into the studio and they proceeded to have sex while she moaned in front of the mic. She ended up recording about half an hour of moaning sounds.

At my 4th grade Christmas party at school, my friend & I exchanged gifts 'cos we drew each other's names. He bought me Appetite For Destruction and I bought him Run DMC's Tougher Than Leather. Anyway, we put Appetite in the cassette player in the classroom to listen to it during the party. Was going fine til it got to the 2nd song -- "It's So Easy." My teacher happened to be standing by the cassette player and heard the line "...Why don't you just f*#k off." She confiscated my cassette, and made my friend & I miss recess for a week when Christmas break was over in January. So I owned Appetite for about a total of 10 minutes...lol

Guns N' Roses could have been the greatest thing since Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, or Queen. Sadly, Axl himself destroyed his own band. I've read tons of stories from people working as studio and tour crew to band members who mentioned that working with Axl was a complete nightmare.

The worst part of all is that Axl hasn't changed at all in 10 years since he disbanned the original G'n'R. The fact that he's been promising 'Chinese Democracy' to be released soon for the past 7 years, is just simply ridiculous. A New York Times report says that apparently the production costs of the album have gone past 13 million making it the most expensive album in history. Let's not forget about that comeback tour in late 2002 that ended up being cancelled because Axl either showed up on stage at 11pm on a concert scheduled to start at 8pm, or in the worst cases Axl just simply didn't show up at all. Regardless of how much talent Axl might have, the guy has a lot of issues that don't seem to be resolved any time soon.

Very very overated.

Good, but not great. I hate the way everyone praises slash and says he the best ever. Sure he's good, but there are far far better players out there. Axl in my opinion dosnt have much of a voice, it reminds me of the lead singer from AC/DC's voice, but not as powerful.

As for them becoming as great as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Queen, not in a million years. There just plain rock, its all been done before, and much better than Guns N Roses did it. There are no other Bands like Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin, they are legends, they influenced so many other bands, they did things taht hadnt been done before. What have Guns N Roses achieved? Not much, sure they have a few good songs, but there not as amazing as lots of people make them out to be.

I think that creating one of the highest grossing records of all time has to count for SOMETHING, at least.

60 Million albums, number 88/150 in the best selling bands/musicians worldwide. Obvisously not a bad score at all, but high amount of sales dosnt mean its great. If the crazy frog manages to get alot of sales and get a number one, its not suprising G n R can get sales.

And when I ment achieved something I wasnt really talking about sales, I was talking about influencing music. Someone said they could become as great as Queen, Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. Not possible, they will never have the same impact or influence as those 3 bands imo.

I agree. I find Axl Rose to be hard rock's answer to Michael Jackson right down to the immense amount of reconstructive plastic surgery Axl has had recently. I don't know if you have seen him, but you would never know it was the same man from the late 80's, early 90's, he looks so entirely different and bizarre.

And to say he has issues working with ANYBODY. How many producers (Roy Thomas Baker included) have worked on and been fired or left of their own accord on Chinese Democracy?

He alienated his entire band, all who were an ensemble of some of 90's rock's newest finest talents (who most of them went on to found Velvet Revolver being Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum).

His irrational temper and tantrums are unreal. I believe he did a concert or a few of them early 2005 with Buckethead as his guitarist, and Axl showed up late, stoned and drunk, screamed at Buckethead, screamed at the audience.

He also is horrid in his private life. He was arrested for beating his girlfriend who was in the ''November Rain'' video, super model Stephanie Seymour.

It's one thing to be ''difficult and eccentric'' when one is very creative, it's another to be volatile, violent, anti-social and whacked out of their mind so bad that they destroy their own creativity itself and push away anyone who is willing to help nurture that very creativity.

Erin and I had tickets to see "Guns N Roses" during their last tour. We never got to see them though because the tour was cancelled before our date. It would have been interesting to see Axl. I think we had 9th row tickets.

Best it was cancelled before though. Look at this:

I'M GONNA KICK YOUR ASS IF YOU DON'T SHOW UP!!


I remember being scared the shit out of a possible riot.
