The period with Guns N ‘ Roses

No band has managed to crack so amazing the market of the rock from when the Guns N ‘ Roses they made their irruption in the rankings of the States United states. A large part of the credit goes to their debut album 1987, Appetite for Destruction and Slash said: “I knew as it was the ’80s, many bands were known for being transgressive. […] We were in the wild. The people who have worked with us have seen that time as something really commercial, I guess.” Slash she has suffered from this, especially the big celebrities. He said: “You can’t even go out in the pub. It was a bit of a shock to me and I was simply drugged, I was drunk and I had hidden in my house. It took me a long to heal from that period“.

A couple of days later, I asked Don Was, the producer, if he could send me an overview of how was the final result. I had done a piece, rhythmic in sound, but Bob said that it seemed a bit too similar to the Guns N ‘ Roses. Then has taken away all“. You can imagine how much there remained evil Slash.
