Guns n' Roses

Post by selgguns.CM on Thu Jun 25, 2009 2:27 am

I know we've had quite a heated debate over the band's "greatness rating", but I would like to just bring another point to the argument. Guns n' Roses did a few covers of really famous songs. While most covers of famous songs are horrible and a joke, GnR covers almost did the songs justice.

Listen to the Guns n Roses covers of "Live and Let Die" and "Knockin on Heaven's Door"

I agree that Guns n' Roses did a great job on both of these, but they still sit in the above average for me.

Who? They're good, just not great. I put them in above average also on the basis that Slash was a good guitarist.

Does their greatness have anything to do with Axl Rose being a lunatic?

Axl Rose was a jackass and an idiot. His voice sounded the same as about 800 other singers.

Noone cares about Axel Rose. GnR following comes way more from Slash.

That's a very young perspective. Axl sold just as many records as Slash did during the initial run of the band. He was not like 800 others, his range was perhaps second only to Chris Cornell during the 87-93 time period. And his lyrics and songwriting ability are frequently ignored because self-hating became "in" right after UYI came out.

Slash is mostly responsible for kids our age finding the band, but they were a hit first because of Axl too. And Axl never auditioned for Poison.

Izzy was what made that band work, though. Don't be forgetting Izzy.
