This is an announcement we thought would never happen. Original Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagen have put aside their differences to reportedly headline Coachella 2016, sources state according to Billboard.com.
What a way to make a come back on one of the biggest stages in the world. We are absolutely thrilled at this announcement. GNR was the first band to fuel my passion for music after my cousin Davey threw a black “Appetite For Destruction” t-shirt on me. It had a skull wrapped in thorns and roses with two revolvers sticking out of the eye sockets printed on the front. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
My parents did not approve so I had to sneak over to his house to catch glimpses of their music videos on MTV at the time. My mom literally ripped that shirt off of my back after I wore it home on accident. I’ve been a fan ever since. That album was also one of the many triggers that led to the founding of Rockstardreams.com and my fascination with The Sunset Strip music scene of the 1980’s.
Guns N’ Roses signed to Geffen Records in 1986 after a legendary set at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. They became arguably the biggest band in the world before the original cast broke up in 1993 after creative and personal differences. Versions of the band have been attempted with Rose at the helm, however the chemistry and the sound has never quite been the same.
Guns N’ Roses may make history once again if they do in fact make this happen and take Coachella by storm. We will be there and can’t wait for this epic performance. If all holds true, the band is back together again and RSD couldn’t be happier.
