It’s So Easy – BRAND NEW VIDEO FROM 1989

To whet fans’ appetites ahead of their lavish ‘Appetite For Destruction’ reissue, Guns N’ Roses have shared the previously unreleased song ‘Shadow Of Your Love’.

The song originates from a trial recording session with ‘Appetite For Destruction’ producer Mike Clink way back in December 1986.

Following the successful trial session, Clink was enlisted to record the full album with Guns N’ Roses the following month.
