Known as The World’s Most Dangerous Band, Guns N’ Roses blasted onto the L.A. rock scene in 1985, unleashing their debut album, Appetite For Destruction. It set the stage for a decade and beyond of destruction, hard-hitting rock and roll and lawsuits. Recently there has been talk of a reunion that may include the original members Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler. Although it is still just a rumor at this point, the fact that Axl and Slash are not denying it makes it intriguing and possible.
If you have ever followed Guns N’ Roses, you probably used the word “shocking” more than “interesting” in describing their antics and decision making. The band never seemed to take the easy road; specifically lead singer Axl Rose.
Events that didn’t make the list (honorable mentions) include the time Axl stopped a show in Buenos Aires after a fan threw a bottle his way. Given the language difference, Axl brought an interpreter on stage, threatening to cancel the show if it happened again. There was also the first “tour” now famously referred to as the “Hell Tour” where the band got into a wicked car accident that almost ended Guns N’ Roses before they were known.
