Thought about that one too. I need to go back and listen to both to make a more informed choice.

GNR. The last gasp of breath for hair metal

GNR was NOT hair metal. Let me emphasize.

Agreed even though in some ways they kinda were. They were just clearly much better IMO than all the hair metal bands.

 

I love Zeppelin, but they helped inspire that crappy hair metal phase. But in the long run they influenced some great music. I think GNR finally ascended to the hard rock throne that had remained empty since Zeppelin. At least talking about the same general style of hard rock. 

 

BTW, STP in terms of music only, had more in common IMO with Zeppelin and GNR than with Nirvana.

I haven't popped Appetite for Destruction in the old stereo in a while. Think I will tomorrow. Front to back, one of the best albums. Jungle is a fantastic intro song. Out to get me, Night Train, My Michelle, Mr. Brownstone. So good.

It was the first rock cassette tape I ever owned. Very first one was Kriss Kross, along with MC Hammer. Vanilla Ice. Then my dad was like "son....just....no" and introduced me to rock.

I'll admit that my favorite song is off Illusion II, You Could be Mine. Long and Bad ass guitar intro, and doesn't hurt it's prominent in one of my favorite movies.

They were a lot more raw and grittier and musically talented than hair metal bands.

There isn't a hair band guitarist on Earth that holds a candle to Slash.

You don't think there were any hard rock bands between Zeppelin and GNR? do you not count punk or 80s alt?

I was trying to say that no one stepped up to Zeppelin's level or even close to it until GNR. The hair metal bands for instance were, at least in some cases trying to be like Zeppelin, but they weren't good.

Check out some of the recent ACDC (AXL/DC) performances with Axl. He's on fire. 

 

My favorite song is probably Estranged. Coma and Rocket Queen would be honorable mentions.

Izzy Stradlin is massively underrated. Rhythm guitarists tend to get that way. Malcolm Young IS AC/DC. Rolling Stones are at their best with a stellar rhythm man to weave with Keith.

Axl is a bloated mess but I'll be damned if he still can't shriek it out when ready

Not in this Lifetime tour kicks off in Detroit tonight.

 

Should be some solid periscope videos out there if that's your thing. Should be awesome.
