Why wait till Monday? The longer it takes to get here the better! Do you recall the little WIP that was posted two weeks ago? Well it is now finished!!! It is titled “Where’s Izzy??!”. So here is the background story behind this one:
I am a huge original lineup Guns N Roses fan. Mainly for Appetite for Destruction. If I had to be stranded on a deserted island with one album, no doubt that is what it would be. I am also a huge fan of Izzy Stradlin as his writing and input played a major role in the sound captured on that album. Fast forward to 2015 and the news a buzz with a GnR reunion. FINALLY!! Axl is on board. Slash is on board!! Duff is in!!! But where the fuck is Izzy??! Once again, us GnR fans are left with the question about the allusive, introverted backbone of one of the greatest albums of all time.
Did I hear a laugh? Here is a quote from wikipedia:
“Appetite for Destruction is the debut studio album by American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. It was released on July 21, 1987, by Geffen Records to massive commercial success, topping the Billboard 200 and eventually becoming the best-selling debut album as well as the 11th best-selling album in the United States. With approximately 30 million copies sold worldwide, it is also one of the best-selling records ever. Although critics were ambivalent toward the album when it was first released, Appetite for Destruction has since received retrospective acclaim and been viewed as one of the greatest albums of all time.”
So suck it.
…and Fuck You Monday.
