We’re back with a great talk with a great guest as comedian Craig Gass joins us for The Best & Worst of Guns N Roses!
Formed on the Sunset Strip in 1985, Guns N Roses quickly ascended to the top of the rock world with their debut album ‘Appetite for Destruction.’ Along with the success would come controversy as the band truly lived the rock star lifestyle. The combustible mix of attitude, agression, talent, and addiction made the band stand out from their peers. Even their stripped down look would signal to the music scene that times were changing. The band would go on to release the massive ‘Use Your Illusion’ parts 1 and 2 and graduate to stadium tours. But, just as quickly as they rose, the band started to fall apart. Members leaving one by one would cause a long dormant period for the band while singer Axl Rose labored over his opus ‘Chinese Democracy.’ By the time the album finally was released, it did more to confuse fans than excite them. Guns N Roses have found new success in recent years with the return of guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan.

In this discussion, we pick our favorite and least favorite track from each album. Additionally, we share our stories of how the band first came on our radar as well as our memories of each album. Craig Gass brings some great stories to the table as he’s had multiple interactions with the band members going back to nearly the beginning. It’s a fun talk about a very intriguing band.
We hope you enjoy The Best & Worst with Guns N Roses with Craig Gass and SHARE with a friend!
