Guns n Roses documentary. Since the world famous band has now reformed and started playing as their (almost) original line-up (vocalist Axl Rose, Slash, guitarists Tracii Guns and Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler) after nearly twenty years it’s a good idea to look back on why people were so excited about seeing them play together again. Gun’s N Roses formed in Los Angles, 1985 and within two years they had released one of the most critically acclaimed albums of all time “Appetite for Destruction” (1987) featuring the immediately recognisable guitar riff in the song “Sweet Child O Mine” and many other epic songs in their own right. This album and the following albums “Use Your Illusion 2 +1” left a shock wave in rock and roll that some people would argue has not been surpassed since.
Overall the band have sold more than 100 million records and all things considered it is amazing that all original members are still rocking out together after all of the extreme drug and alcohol abuse (major factor as to why they split up). The documentary “The Most Dangerous Band In The World: The Story of Guns N roses” explores the history of Guns N Roses and some of the crazy thing that happened during the groups “heyday”.
