Guns N’ Roses Guns N' Roses (sometimes abbreviated as G N' R) are an American hard rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1985
Members of the group Guns N' Roses was formed in March 1985 by singer Axl Rose and rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin of Hollywood Rose, along with lead guitarist Tracii Guns, bassist Ole Beich, and drummer Rob Gardner of L.A. Guns. The band coined its name by combining two of the group members' names.
Music style The music of Guns N' Roses is a fusion of punk rock, blues-rock, heavy metal and hard rock.
Albums The band has released six studio albums, accumulating sales of more than 100 million albums worldwide, including shipments of 45 million in the United States.
Late 1980s and early 1990s Guns N' Roses have been credited with reviving the mainstream popularity of rock 'n' roll, at a time when popular music was dominated by dance music and pop metal.Their late 1980s and early 1990s years have been described as the period in which they brought forth a "hedonistic rebelliousness" reminiscent of the early Rolling Stones
The first album Guns N' Roses' debut album Appetite for Destruction was released in July 1987. The album underwent an artwork change after the original cover design by Robert Williams—depicting a surrealist scene in which a dagger-toothed monster vengefully attacks a robot rapist
"Welcome to the Jungle" In the U.S., "Welcome to the Jungle" was issued as the album's first single, with an accompanying music video
"Sweet Child o' Mine" "Sweet Child o' Mine" was the album's second U.S. single, a love song co-written by Rose as a poem for his then-girlfriend Erin Everly
Growing success . Due to the growing grassroots success of the band and the cross-gender appeal of the song, "Sweet Child o' Mine" and its accompanying music video received heavy airplay on both radio and MTV, becoming a huge hit during the summer of 1988 and reaching the top of the charts in the U.S. Slash later commented, "It was actually my least favorite song we ever wrote... I hate it, but it turns out to be our greatest song ever.”
Guns N' Roses tours Guns N' Roses toured extensively in support of their debut album, embarking on the 16-month-long Appetite for Destruction Tour. In addition to headlining dates in Europe and the U.S., the band opened North American shows for The Cult, Mötley Crüe, and Alice Cooper throughout the second half of 1987
G N' R Lies Guns N' Roses' next album, G N' R Lies, was released in November 1988. In 1990, Guns N' Roses returned to the studio to begin recording their most ambitious undertaking yet.
Success Guns N' Roses accompanied the Use Your Illusion albums with many videos, including "Don't Cry", "November Rain" and "Estranged" – some of the most expensive music videos ever made. The hit ballad "November Rain" (No. 3 US) became the most requested video on MTV,
Writing a new material Interviews with Guns N' Roses band members suggest that between 1994 and 1996, the band sporadically began to write and record new material, most of which, according to Slash, had been written by Rose. Rose has stated the exact opposite in the open letter on the official Guns N' Roses website, that the album was mostly a "Slash album" and Rose was allowed very little input into the album
Their works In an MTV phone interview with Kurt Loder in 1999, Rose said he and the then-new band had recorded enough material for a double album. In an informal chat with Rolling Stone magazine in February 2006, Rose stated the band had 32 songs in the works.
Chinese Democracy While appearing on various fan message boards in December 2008 (after the release of Chinese Democracy, which was released in November of that year), he stated several working titles of songs from a possible future album.
Fame On December 7, 2011, it was announced that the classic Guns N' Roses lineup were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame, along with several other acts, including Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Faces.
