Guns N’ Roses have had a long and storied career, creating as much controversy as the have adulation. Regardless of what you may think of them, there’s no doubt that they are one of the greatest out and out rock bands of all time. Their 1987 album, Appetite For Destruction, is a landmark release, and their ’90s singles such as November Rain, You Could Be Mine, and Don’t Cry really capture the zeitgeist of the era when rock music officially became a commercial success.
While Axl Rose was flying the GNR flag for many years and released the divisive album, The Chinese Democracy, the thought of the original line up reuniting seemed like a pipe dream. That changed in 2016 when Rose was rejoined by iconic guitarist, Slash, and bass player Duff McKagan for the Not In This Lifetime tour, which saw rejuvenated Guns N’ Roses perform critically acclaimed shows across North America and beyond.
