The barren desert of music. To see a good artist in the top 40 has been unheard of ever since the breakup of Nirvana. Dominated by emo, the dregs of rap,pop divas, and poser-punk acts. At least the Boy Band craze is over. When Bob Dylan's new album reached the Billboard charts this week, I was amazed.
Dude, turn of that top 40 bullshit and put on this AC/DC cd.

One of Guns n' Roses many great songs. It is a love song written for Axl Rose's then-wife Erin Everly.

It started during a jam session when as a joke Slash started playing, in his words, "a stupid little riff" which he'd used as an excercise, and making wierd faces at drummer Steve Adler. Izzy Stradlin then came in with some chords and Duff McKagan improvised a bass line. Axl was amazed and started singing from a love letter to Erin. In 1988, with the release of Appetite for Destruction, Sweet Child reached #1 on the billboard top 40, even passing Welcome to the Jungle. Slash originally didn't like the song, but after playing it live he began to enjoy it more. His riff is always listed as one of the greatest ever by music critics.
Unfortunately, Axl and Everly's relationship did worse than the song, ending in divorce and spousal abuse lawsuits. But the song is amazing anyway.
She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I'd stare too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Woah, oh, oh, Sweet child o' mine
Whoah, oh, oh, oh, Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Woah, oh, oh, Sweet child o' mine
Woah, oh, oh, oh, Sweet love of mine

Woah, oh, oh, yeah
Whoah, oh, oh oh, Sweet child o' mine
Whoah oh, oh, oh, sweet love of mine
Whoah, oh, oh oh, Sweet child o' mine, ooh yeah,
Oh, sweet love of mine

Where do we go,
Where do we go now,
Where do we go,
Where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
Where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
Where do we go now,
where do we go,
Oh, where do we go now
where do we go,
where do we go now,
where do we go,
whoah, where do we go now,

Sweet child,
Sweet child o' mine

The drummer for legendary band Pink Floyd. He is an excellent drummer, and he has the distinction of being the only consistent member of the band.
I can't believe how underrated nick mason is!

The original rhythm guitarist for guns n' roses. He was the quiet member of the band, and didn't look for much attention. He was a pretty good guitarist, and wrote alot of the band's best songs, and co-wrote many others. He was the first gunner to give up drugs and alchohol, in 1989, though this was in part because of a court order after an arrest for disorderly conduct and indecent exposure on an airplane. He left in the middle of the use your illusion tour because of creative differences with Axl Rose.
Some of the songs that Izzy Stradlin wrote:
You Could be Mine
Rocket Queen
Mr. Brownstone
Think About You
14 Years
Double-Talkin' Jive.

A wonderful ideal that is sadly no longer with us. Born 1776, died 2001 with the Patriot Act. RIP
Let us now observe a moment of silence for our dear late friend the first amendment.

The bassist for guns n' roses for all of their albums except chinese democracy. He is now with Slash in Velvet Revolver. He was a good bassist, and is also a realy nice guy. He now has had to give up the rock star lifestyle since he's married with 2 kids, but he still rocks when he's playing music. never actualy was kicked out of guns n roses- he and Slash, the only original members left, kicked Axl Rose and all the replacement members out in '98. Axl then sued them for the rights to the name, won, and Duff and Slash formed Velvet Revolver. Like the other gunners, duff had trouble with drugs and booze. he now has quit drinking, after his pancreas burst and he learned that any more alchohol would kill him. He's not much of a partier any more, but he's still a realy cool guy.
Duff McKagan is the man. 'Nuff said.
