From Slash's Solos, To Axl's note range, Guns N Roses touched Rock and Rolls roots and shook it to its core. Guns N Roses can make a simple note hard, just because it sounds stronger. Axl Rose could keep a crowd on its feet for hours because he was entertaining, it was like letting a bird out of its cage. That's why people love them.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Guns N Roses were inducted first year of eligibility, the first band to ever achieve that. Inducted in 2012 by Green Day, Axl Rose did not attend the ceremony because of feuds with the entire band. The original band received the award and went on to play songs for the crowd.
Nothing lasts forever
After many feuds with band members, many members went their separate ways at different times. The band has never broken up, just different members have replaced missing spots. But that didn't impress fans. The band never explained why they all left, but it probably has to do with addictions, Axls arrogance, and concerts. Axl is the only remaining original member today.
The show must go on!
Guns N Roses have finally completed an album after 17 years of waiting. The album was released on July 1st 2014. It features 25 of their old and new songs.
