Guns N Roses | Hard Rock

Guns N' Roses (abbreviated as GN'R) is an American hard rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. They have sold an estimated 90 million albums worldwide. Their 1987 major label debut, Appetite for Destruction, produced by Mike Clink, went on to sell over 25 million copies worldwide and reached #1 in the USA a year after its release date.The band's musical style, onstage presence and bad boy rock image helped usher in a new era in the dominant hard rock scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s. While glam metal was the leading genre in record sales, video charts and radio airplay, Guns N' Roses offered a grittier, more traditional take on rock music, which helped to popularize the sub-genre known as sleaze rock and won many fans who admired their apparent authenticity. The band enjoyed worldwide success from 1987 to 1993, but clashing personalities of different band members brought about the end of the original line-up. Today, frontman Axl Rose is the only original member in the band's current line-up; he has now served as lead singer for 22 years.MembersAxl Rose,Dizzy Reed,Robin Finck,Tommy Stinson,Chris Pitman,Richard Fortus,Bryan Mantia,Bumblefoot,Frank Ferrer.Former members Ole Beich (deceased)Rob Gardner,Tracii Guns,Steven Adler,Izzy Stradlin,Gilby Clarke,Slash,Matt Sorum,Duff McKagan,Josh Freese,Paul Tobias,Buckethead.Official Website- Child Of Mine- Rain- It Fun- City-
