Abstract:

"Guns n' Roses emerged from Los Angeles in the 1980s with a reputation for hard-hitting music and a riotous rock 'n' roll lifestyle that earned them the title 'the most dangerous band in the world.' Their first album, Appetite for destruction, took the music industry by storm when it was released in 1987, becoming the biggest-selling debut in the history of American music. Rock writer Paul Elliott has interviewed Guns n' Roses many times since their debut, and brings real insight to this unofficial exploration of the group: its music, its success, and its struggles over the last 30 years. And now, with three of the original Guns n' Roses lineup reunited, he brings the incredible story of one of the world's hardest-rocking bands up to date. This book contains 200 stunning color photographs from key photographers who have documented the band's career"--Page [4] of cover..
