    CLEVELAND, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- All of the original members of Guns N' Roses are to attend the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, keyboardist Dizzy Reed said. Lead singer Axl Rose is the only founding member of the band still performing under the Guns N' Roses name. The group, which was established in 1985, is to be honored at the Hall of Fame ceremony April 14. Reed has been playing with the band for about 20 years. "I know that all the original band is going to be there," Reed told Billboard.com. "I...

    Iranian groupie 'risks life' for book on bedding famous rockers A self-proclaimed "slut" from Iran may become the target of Muslim extremists after she penned a book about having sex with the world's most famous rockers. Roxana Shirazi, who lived in Tehran until she was 10, claims to have had sexual encounters with members of Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue, Velvet Revolver, Papa Roach and Skid Row. Several editors and agents reportedly refused to work with her on the book, titled The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage, for fear of enraging the Muslim community. "I haven't attacked...

    Nirvana didn't kill hair metal - Guns n' Roses did. With their explosive 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, Guns n' Roses burst out of the Los Angeles glam rock scene and permanently carved a spot in rock history. This music review places Appetite for Destruction as arguably the best album of the 1980s. From the opening delayed guitar riff of "Welcome to the Jungle" to the incendiary "Paradise City" the the almost 50s flavored ending of "Rocket Queen," the album captures the reality of life on the streets better than any before or since. Lyrically, the band completely avoided...

    APPETITE FOR SELF-DESTRUCTION: I.B. BAD ON CHINESE DEMOCRACY IGA and Best Buy Faced an Uphill Fight in Their Efforts to Market GNR’s Album December 3, 2008 Many are expressing surprise that Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy sold only 255k in its first week as a Best Buy exclusive. But those who have closely analyzed the situation say that comparing GNR’s total with the 802k tallied by AC/DC in its Wal-Mart exclusive is like comparing apples and oranges, in that radically different circumstances surrounded the two projects. AC/DC outsold GNR by nearly 500k not because of any particular difference between the...

Delayed since recording began in 1994, "Chinese Democracy" hit stores in the U.S. on Sunday, although it is unlikely to be sold legally in China, where censors maintain tight control over films, music and publications.

    Welcome to the dry jungle. After being told state law prohibits them from imbibing on stage, Guns N' Roses decided to call off Monday's scheduled concert at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. In a press release, a band spokesman said the no-booze ban imposed on them by fire marshals for the Maine Public Safety Department made it "impossible for the band to perform their show to the usual high standards that their fans deserve." Frontman Axl Rose subsequently issued a statement on G N' R's official Website explaining the situation and offering an apology for those ticket...

    The long delayed Guns N' Roses album 'Chinese Democracy' is absolutely "mind-blowing,” according to former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach. The album, which has been in the making since 1997, was played at a September party hosted by frontman Axl Rose - the only remaining original member - at his mansion in California. Bach, who is opening for the legendary group on their current tour of North America, says, "It was mind-blowing. It's a very cool album - it's bada*s with killer screams, killer guitar riffs, but it's got a totally modern sound. "The word for it is 'grand'. It's...

According to a Tuesday (September 12) ruling by San Diego Judge John Houston, the producers of CBS' "Rock Star" are going to have to come up with an alternate name for Supernova, the band made up of Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee, Voivod's Jason Newsted and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke. Last month, the original Supernova — an Orange County, California, punk trio — filed for a preliminary injunction in San Diego's U.S. District Court...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality?

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    March 9, 2005 — A Glendale Heights club has been sued by the legendary band Led Zeppelin. The club has apparently been playing the songs of Zeppelin and other groups without having paid the yearly licensing fee required of clubs, restaurants and bars. Chances are the surviving members of Led Zeppelin have no idea this suit even exists. But lawyers for the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, or ASCAP, has filed suit against the owners of the club 602 North in Glendale Heights. The suit claims that during an October investigation of 602 North, songs by not only...

    After fours years as a member of Guns N' Roses, during which time the band canceled more shows than it played and released no original material, guitarist Buckethead has had enough. The eccentric musician, who wears a fried-chicken bucket on his noggin and talks only through a hand puppet, has walked out before but has always returned to the fold. This time, however, it looks permanent. At the end of last year, Buckethead became fed up with Guns' inability to complete an album or tour and stopped working with them, his manager said. Buckethead appeared on the green carpet at...
