28 years ago @gunsnroses released the classic and epic single "November Rain" ✊. CREDITS 💿 @gunsnroses / @geffenrecords. NOTES 📑 B-Side: Sweet Child O'Mine (LP Version). This song was premièred live at Deer Creek Music Center, USA, May 29, 1991. On July 14th, 2018 November Rain has become the first music video from the '90s to hit over a billion @youtube streams. * "November Rain was a song that, when it first surfaced – you know, first came up in Axl’s playing on the piano – it was way before Appetite for Destruction came in, and we’d been dicking around with it for years. It used to be, like, 25 minutes long. And, finally, everything that’s on the record – almost everything, all the melodies and all that – just came off the top of my head when I first heard the piano, and I did it all on acoustic. So that’s just the way that I heard it. And when we finally decided to record it, and we had an arrangement, it pretty much came naturally. There’s some new stuff in there, but not too much". @slash on MTV. May 21st, 1992.

KISS May Bring Out Former Members For Their Final Tour
Rock band KISS is currently on their “End of the Road” Tour which launched in January of 2019 and it will run until July 17, 2021 when it concludes in New York City. Many fans have been asking for a reunion of the classic KISS lineup with guitarist ACE FREHLEY and drummer PETER CRISS.
KISS Manager Doc McGhee has publicly stated that all of the band’s former members may make an appearance.
Days before the band’s final tour began former guitarist ACE FREHLEY launched a scathing attack on former bandmates PAUL STANLEY and GENE SIMMONS. Following the attack it seemed unlikely that FREHLEY would rejoin his bandmates again.
However, in September of last year FREHLEY hinted that he had a “gut feeling” he’d join KISS on stage at some point in time on or before July 17, 2021.
In a new interview with Pollstar, McGhee clarified his comments saying
“It’s going to be great. It’s going to be worthy of the end of the road. It will be worthy to the 45 years of KISS, the last month for sure. We want to celebrate everybody and we might bring out all the former members. We’d like to. Nobody says we hate this guy; we hate that guy; we want everybody who wants to come out.”
