Great rock n roll band of the late 80's and early 90's, blahblahblah. Basically kicked makeup hair metal bands in the ass with straight out rock n roll, not some GLAM OMFG!!1 But, it ended, cuz basically Axl pissed everybody off in the band and they left. Now, Velvet Revolver.
GNR was great
Nighttrain, Out Ta Get Me, Civil War, 14 Years, blah blah blah
Then Axl became a control freak, took over the rights for the name of the band, and he threw out ballads like November Rain, Don't Cry, blahblah.
The rest of the band didnt like it.
