A few weeks ago a feelnumb.com reader sent me an e-mail attempting to get a “burning question” he’s had for decades answered. His question: Who is the kissing couple in the Gun’s N Roses “Paradise City” video?
Duff McKagan has continually expressed his unabashed love for Prince and his music and even credits Prince for inspiring him to follow his dreams of becoming a rock star. I caught a couple of Guns N’ Roses “Not In This Lifetime” tour shows and couldn’t get over his subtle tribute to his idol by adding the famous Prince “Symbol” to his signature 1986 White Fender Jazz Bass Special.
From their early songs like “King of Rock”, to the guitar driven “Rock Box” and of course the Aerosmith collaboration “Walk This Way”, Hip-Hop legends Run-D.M.C. have always been influenced by rock music. Looks like Rock N’ Roll has also influenced the fashion of music fanatic D.M.C. He ditched the Adidas jumpsuit and sneakers for a pair of black jeans and a rock band shirt.
April 1, 2016 – Actually, April 2, 2016 – Guns N’ Roses took to the stage a little after 12:00am at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, California and feelnumb.com was there to witness the historic moment.
April 1, 2016 – Crews are busy working overtime at the historic Tower Records building on the Sunset Strip for what people think is going to be a Guns N’ Roses live warm-up show.
The reunited Guns N’ Roses began rehearsals about a month ago at an undisclosed location in the San Fernando Valley, California preparing for their Las Vegas live debut on April 8, 2016 and their Coachella Festival 2016 headlining slot. I can confirm from a highly respected, well placed source that the band members that have been rehearsing together daily are Slash, Duff McKagan along with…
Dave Grohl once played drums with Tom Petty, in another odd pairing, Guns N’ Roses once asked The Eagles Don Henley to fill in on drums for GN’R drummer Steven Adler while he was in rehab.
April 28, 2015 – On the 25th Anniversary of their 10 month marriage, Erin Everly, the ex-wife of Axl Rose and the woman that inspired the Guns N’ Roses anthem “Sweet Child O’ Mine” posted what she says is the only photo taken of their 1990 wedding on her Instagram account.
I was watching the new Slash documentary “Slash Raised On The Sunset Strip” about the rise of Slash and stories about his time in Guns N’ Roses. Funny thing is, when the photo was shown in “Slash Raised On The Sunset Strip”, the face of Axl Rose is blurred out. Check out the screen cap…
I recently came across this really cool photo of Krist Novoselic on stage playing a pink “Hello Kitty” guitar. After doing a bit of research on the guitar I found out it is a “Hello Kitty Stratocaster” by Squier (Fender).
