Hi, I came here with an interesting topic today. It's about Guns N' Roses, a huge American hard rock band. A rock lover can't help but know Guns N'Roses. It's a great band that decorated the golden age of rock music with its unique vocals and good music.
Guns N' Roses was a band that also had a rivalry with Nirvana, one of the most successful rock bands of the 1980s. Their album sold more than 100 million copies worldwide and nearly 50 million copies in the United States alone. In this post, we are going to cover Guns N' Roses' music and the band's life story.

Guns N' Roses
Guns N' Roses is an American rock band formed in 1985. The band consists of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitar Slash, and Izzie Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler. Their music seems to be pursuing heavy metal, but it is very different from conventional heavy metal music. It is a band with a wide musical spectrum as it is simultaneously mentioned in several categories in the field of rock, such as hard rock and LA metal.
Since the band's debut album was successful, there have been many bad words that they have been overrated by antagonism and frequent gossip among the members. However, they overturned this assessment with the album "Use Your Illusion 1 & 2". If you listen to their song, "November Rain" everyone will think the same way. During the long running time, the melody line composition of the whole story is close to perfection, and the guitar solo is also very original and beautiful. These Guns N' Roses are still popular with many people. Next, let's talk about their formation and debut.

the formation and debut of a band
In 1981, Axl Rose arrived in Los Angeles. He knew no one but his native Indiana friend Izzie Stradlin. Axl Rose wanted to be a punk band, but it wasn't easy because she looked like a hippie. Axl Rose was involved in several bands before forming a band called "Hollywood Rose".
In 1984, the band went from place to place recording five demos, and Chris Webber left the band due to a feud between Axl Rose and Chris Webber. After that, they recruit Slash. However, Izzie Stradlin, who was unhappy with Chris Webber's departure, also withdrew, and the drummer later withdrew. At this time, Steven Adler joins as a drummer. Stephen Adler recalled that time and said, "Axle grabbed the microphone and ran around, singing in a voice I've never heard of. At that moment, I thought I would succeed." However, the band is disbanded after one or two performances. Later, Easy Stradlin introduced Axl Rose to Tracy Guns, who joined "L.A. Guns", but the band soon broke up due to a feud between the drummer and the bassist.
As the band broke up, Axl Rose thought it would be better to regroup "Hollywood Rose" than to get a new band, and persuaded Chris Webber and Izzie Stradlin to join him again. However, Chris Webber left for New York and Tracy Guns joined the band temporarily.
In 1985, Tracy Guns and Axl Rose thought it would be better to combine the bands they were playing. Then they joined the two bands to form Guns N'Roses. However, afterwards, the member changes, with Tracy Guns leaving the band and Slash joining again. They made songs and performed together at a one-room rented house behind the guitar shop. They recalled the house they used to live in, calling it a "hell house."
In 1986, he signed with Geffen Records for $75,000. Before recording their debut album, they released their first EP, "Live ?!@Like A Suicide" on their label. After that, they made an album that will go down in history.
Appetite for Destruction
It is the 65th most successful album in the history of the Billboard album chart, and is the debut album by Guns N' Roses, released in 1987. "It is one of the legendary albums that will remain in the history of popular music, and both commercial achievements and musical evaluations are considered the highest-quality works." The 1986 EP "Live ?!@Like A Suicide" was an unexpected success, and was the official debut album by Geffen Records, then a major label.
However, the album did not work out commercially well in the early days. Because it was much harder and more sensational than the radical album cover, glam metal, and pop metal, it was not played on radio or TV. At that time, Geffen Records felt the album's jackpot, but unexpectedly, the album sold only 200,000 copies in seven months, only accumulating losses. Records later tried to give up the album, but Geffen Records executive Tom Zutaut persuaded MTV to air Welcome to the Jungle in the early morning hours.
That's where the big twist started. People who listened to the song at dawn called MTV like crazy. Guns & Roses' name became known through people who asked, "What is the name of the song you played at dawn?" After the album became popular, MTV eventually aired Guns N' Roses music.
The album reached number one on the "Billboard" 200 album chart on August 6, just 50 weeks after the release of Sweet Child O' Mine in 1988. Appetite for Destruction is currently listed as the best-selling debut album in pop history.
their success and division
The early '90s, after their great success, was when the band was most severely divided. Axl Rose was often gone, and when they gathered to record, Steven Adler was drunk on heroin and scattered in the bathroom. During the Illusion tour, Duff McKagan and Slash were seriously involved in drug and alcohol problems. He once moved a fallen slash in front of an elevator to the emergency room, and Duff McKagan said he couldn't do anything without alcohol.
As the members struggled with drugs and alcohol, Axl Rose told the members before the song that he would disband the band if he didn't break up with "Mr. Browstone." "Mr. Brownstone" is a song about drug addiction among members.
The album "Use Your Illusion" was released on September 17, 1991, replacing the drummer. Each of these albums sells 7 million copies, often at this time Guns N' Roses is in their prime. On November 7, 1991, two months after the album's release, Axl Rose's friend and band guitarist Izzie Stradlin abruptly announced her withdrawal during the tour. The reason for the withdrawal was exhausting from a series of tours and mentioned the perception and performance of the chronic Axl Rose, but I think the main cause was the discord with the slash. Afterwards, they became estranged due to discord and eventually broke up.
