Guns And Roses

  • Axl Rose had a persistant stalker. Her name is Karen Jane McNeil, and she claims to communicate with Rose through telepathy.
  • Rose and Stradlin formed the band. They took their name from 2 bands they used to play in, L.A. Guns and Hollywood Rose.
  • Rose was married to Erin Everly, the daughter of Don Everly, for 3 weeks.
  • "Axl Rose" is an anagram of "Oral Sex."
  • Slash played on Michael Jackson's albums Dangerous and Invincible. He also played on "Beat It" and "Black And White" at Jackson's 2001 reunion shows in New York City.
  • Their first gigs were in Seattle. Their ride broke down, so they hitchhiked from Los Angeles to play 5 shows there.
  • Slash got his nickname from a family friend because he was always in a hurry.
  • In 2001, Rose reformed the band with all new members - he was allowed to keep the name because he owns the rights. He played with various versions of the new group over the next few years, but they never finished Chinese Democracy, the album they started working on in 2002.
  • Slash's first guitar was a one-stringed acoustic. When he was 15 his grandmother gave him a electric Les Paul copy.
  • Early in their career, they lived in a small apartment in Los Angeles they called Hell House because of alcohol, drugs, girls and all manner of sin.
  • Before taking up guitar, Slash was mainly interested in BMX riding and competed at a professional level.
  • McKagan's pancreas exploded in 1994 because of his severe drinking habits. He has been sober ever since and now sticks to non-alcoholic beer.

With regard to point number 5, I'd like to make it known that SLASH DID NOT PLAY ON MICHAEL JACKSON (may he rest in piece) BEAT IT. IT WAS EDWARD VAN HALEN, and if one listenes to the distinctive style played in the guitar solo (also known as tapping), it is evident that Van Halen's trademark technique is employed and cannot be confused with Slash. With respect to Slash he is an awesome guitarist who I respect, however the mistake must be rectified. I shall finish this comment with a link for those who would like to learn more about the song Beat It http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/la-et-web-thrillertrivia12feb12,0,5143215.story
