08:36 AM: I start today’s post due to lack of time.
08:37 AM: Gosh, don’t know yet what to post today… well, hip-hop…no we had too much… reggae…same thing…
08:38 AM: well, we could go back to the ’80s… maybe not…then, some rock?! In the end, rock never dies.
08:38 AM: Yes. Let’s put some rock. Let’s talk about Guns ‘n’ Roses.
08:41 AM: From the web: “Guns N’ Roses are an influential American hard rock band founded in Los Angeles in 1985. They are often credited with bringing rock n’ roll back into the mainstream during the late 1980s, resurrecting the styles of bands such as Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones during a time when hair metal and glam rock had been dominating the airwaves.

They have released six studio albums, Appetite for Destruction in 1987, Gn’r Lies (re-issue of the self-released ‘Live Like a Suicide’ EP, plus four newly recorded acoustic songs) in 1988, Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II in 1991, The Spaghetti Incident? (Covers album) in 1993, and, after fifteen years and several lineup changes with only one member of the original lineup remaining, Chinese Democracy in 2008. They also released one “Live” EP in 1986, which was a collection of 5 songs that the band had been playing since their first rehearsal with an audience track added to make the demos seem live, titled Live Like A Suicide.

The band is often referred to as “the world’s most dangerous band” due to their volatile live shows. Stemming from the LA rock & roll underground in 1986, the band signified a shift in rock from slick hair-metal back to gritty, dirty, street-smart rock & roll. The ugly lyrics matched the sleaze of the music—driven by heavy blues licks—covering misogyny, violence, city life, sex, liquor, and hard drugs. They also, however, had a tendency to show sensitivity and a desire to break free from the city. Subsequent albums revealed an influence from bands in the vein of The Rolling Stones and Queen.”

08:41 AM: G’n’R to me are memory of a great summer spent in Calabria, with Fabio, Francesco, Stefano, Salvio e Antonio.
08:42 AM: Gotta go for a coffee with Max. Let’s play the rock with this:
