Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Slash Shows Off New Skull Ring from Dog State
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has always been a huge lover of jewellry be it bracelets, bangles, piercings and rings. Last week he showed off a new skull ring he just got! Check it out below! If you guys like the jewelry you can check out the company (Dog State) who made the piece here .
Personally I am not a huge fan of Dog State jewelry just by looking at their instagram page. I always see ads on facebook for a company named Zenger whose stuff I like a lot more.
27 Years Ago Guns N’ Roses Released Their Double Album “Use Your Illusion 1” and “Use Your Illusion 2”
27 years ago today Guns N’ Roses released their long awaited double album titled “Use Your Illusion 1” and “Use Your Illusion 2”. The double album was named after a Mark Kostabi painting which was used as the front cover of both albums. Funny enough frontman Axl Rose paid a lot of money to use the images on the front cover of the album, but little did Axl know that the images were public domain and he could’ve gotten away with paying nothing.
The albums in my opinion feature Guns N’ Roses best work of their career. Epic songs like ‘Coma’, ‘Estranged’, ‘Don’t Cry’, ‘November Rain’, ‘Locomotive’ and ‘Civil War’ really showed how deep the talent of the band was. ‘Use Your Illusion 2’ was always considered the more commercial of the two albums and sold better than ‘Use Your Illusion 1’. Combined the albums have sold over 30 million copies worldwide. At the same time many fans felt the albums were bloated featuring some forgettable songs and was too much of a departure from ‘Appetite for Destruction’. including ‘My World’, The album was supported by a massive 2.5 year long tour that spanned 27 countries and saw the Gunners play 192 shows around the world. Marred by late starts, cancellations, the band walking off stage and riots, the Use Your Illusion tour is one of the most famous rock n’ roll tours of all time. The tour netted $56 Million, but the band didn’t make any money on the tour according to bassist Duff McKagan. McKagan claimed that the late starts and fines cut into the band’s earnings. Check out some video footage of the release of the album below along with a true story on the artwork of the album!
