Really hate GNR. Can't stand Axl's vocals. Slash is a good guitarist but overhyped.

If I had to listen to one of their songs I guess I would pick Paradise City.

Same here and if I had to listen to one of their songs from this album it has to be the song where Axel whistles??? I think that's the one.

It was my very first hard rock album so it always will be kinda special...even if nowadays it's not my kind of music anymore. But still it's always fun to listen to some of the songs (Welcome, Rocket Queen, Sweet Child), brings back some good memories!

One of the most overrated bands of all time.  Will stipulate that Appetite is a very good album, but not top 10.  perhaps top 20.

He must have made a killing on that contract he signed at The Joint in Vegas.  I am not sure how many shows they performed but it was a shitload.
Hell I even dragged my wife to see one of those shows.  It was the next day after Rush played at the MGM Grand.
I figured hey why not do a double shot of rock and roll.  Rush and GNR.

Well like I said after "Rocket Queen" they did all of this Chinese Democracy shit. Some songs Axl didn't even sing on so Wendy and I split!

I will say the place was packed but memory tells me that that was the last show of the contract.

Like a fool I had to pick up GNR LIVE AT THE JOINT on bluray.  I watched it last night.  Their drummer sucks.  He's big and bad and could kick my ass but he sucks on the drums!.

Oh well.  Axl sucks too.  He should just retire.

Actually I will tell you that my best friend's brother bought a house in Malibu back in the early 90's.  You won't believe who his neighbors are.  Axl Rose and Pam Anderson with the two boys.  He would Axl and Tommy together all the time.
To be honest I think Axl still has the house.  Pam still lives their too with the boys.

My buddy's brother just bought a house in Tahoe.  Guess who lives on the same street as him?  David Coverdale baby!  Whitesnake!

I liked the album when it came out.   As ReGorLa Troy said, you had to be there.   GnR gave rock music the shot in the arm it really needed at the time.  I didn't pay much attention to them after the first album.

Yeah,  still like Rocket Queen, very loud !!!

Not a top 10 album for me, but I still like it. Rocket Queen is the best song.
