Use Your Illusions I/II are still great. There's plenty of perfect songs on there - that I consider it their definitive album(s). The older stuff is second. Spaghetti Incident is interesting, but useless. Chinese Democracy was cool to check out, but nothing to hook myself on.

Yup same here, ILLUSIONS are fucking amazing. I listen them to this day and also more often than APPETITE/LIES. Love BLACK LEATHER from SPAGHETTI INCIDENT and that's about it, but they're some listenable songs on it...

I remember back in 2002 I actually scored tickets to that GNR lineup just cuz I wanted to see Buckethead in GNR, but then the plug got pulled on the tour due to Axs's nonsense.

I did end up seeing them live in 2005 or 2006, when Sebastian Bach opened up for them and they were okay.


I love this:

Thanks for the laugh. If you care to study the facts on personality disorders then go ahead, I had to a long time ago. Sure, I haven't met the guy, but Axl Rose had a psychiatrist with him through the whole UYI tour. He was diagnosed with at least having bipolar disorder, but was quick to dismiss it himself. There is something wrong with Axl Rose, 100% sure of that.

To be fair, there's "something wrong" with all artists. If there wasn't, they'd be bagging groceries or answering telephones for a living.

Gee, you don't know any normal artists? I know a few singers (yes, that's their job), and they're perfectly normal. They don't even do drugs.

'Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Democracy 3D - Live at the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas' Blu-ray Dated

Axl Rose and his band will rock out on Blu-ray 3D in July, and you can pre-order the concert here.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Music is preparing 'Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Democracy 3D - Live at the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas' for Blu-ray on July 1.

This absolute ambush on the city of sin, captured in HD/3D, puts you in the best seat in the house for an electrifying once in a lifetime live concert performance. Filmed during GNR's Appetite For Democracy residency at The Joint in November 2012, celebrating twenty-five years of "Appetite for Destruction"and four years of "Chinese Democracy," the elaborate Vegas style production features Rock Icon Axl Rose at the top of his game with his current lineup performing some of GNR's biggest hits including "Welcome To The Jungle," "Sweet Child Of Mine," "Mr Brownstone," "November Rain," "Chinese Democracy," Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," "Nightrain," McCartney's "Live And Let Die," "Paradise City," and many more hard rockin hits! This is the first live concert release from Guns N' Roses, since "Use Your Illusion II" in 1992. Sin City will never be the same.

Specs and supplements have not been announced yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray combo pack is $24.98.

I'd sort of be interested in seeing this. The new version of the band isn't as good as the classic lineup but honestly I don't hate Chinese Democracy and Axl can put on a decent show.

I hope this comes with a 2 hour camera shot on the empty stage until Axel decides to go on, just like real life.

Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release the live Guns N' Roses concert film Appetite for Democracy 3D - Live at the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas, on July 1, 2014, which will be available in North America on Blu-ray, featuring the complete concert film in both 3D and 2D plus an interactive 3D photo gallery, and standard DVD featuring the 2D version of the film. Both releases are mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and feature bonus interviews with the band.

Between the narrator, Axls dance moves in the beginning, the outfits, and the flame transitions this looks like an SNL sketch. Such a shame, this band was incredible...a very long time ago.

That looks really bad. Axel Rose is really holding onto that gay mustache. What is it with his 80s outfits and silly hats as well? Is the guy bald these days or something. He looks really out of shape and his skin has a sausage quality to it. I agree with the poster about the stupid flames and the general awfulness of this promo.

GnR were once a great band, but that was over 20 years ago. Some things should remain dead and live on only in memories.

I just watched the documentary of the band 30 Seconds To Mars (hate the band, but it's a fascinating doc), and I loved the part where Leto used the term "Chinese Democracy" as a verb to describe delaying the album indefinitely as a tactic in playing hardball with their label. "I'm going to Chinese Democracy this thing until we get what we want!"

How long do you have to wait for the show to start after you put the DVD in your player? This is GnR, after all...

i hear there is an easter egg where you throw a lighter at the screen and it makes him walk off and Duff magically appear to sing the rest of the show. in key.

I heard it has special copy protection that prevents the disc from working in any device owned by Slash.

That video reminds me of an old K-Tel Records ad.
