"He'll be really quiet most of the time and won't really let a lot of himself out. Then he pulls on a guitar and let's out his heart and soul."
"Only Woman Bleed" live at "Freddie Mercury Tribute", 1992

"That's another problem. We all think we have so much fuckin' time. We ain't got no goddam time. We ain't got no time to waste at all."
Axl's speech before 'Welcome to the Jungle' - Chicago, 1992

"I watch MTV and it's hard not to throw shit at the TV set because it's so fucking boring. Even the bands around here in LA are the same way, the whole music industry. It's new to us, this business, and we meet these people and they say 'do this, do that'. And we go 'fuck it, fuck you!' Because it's just not us. We do whatever we want to."
Kerrang!, 1987

Random Facts About Appetite for Destruction:
*‘Paradise City’ has a unique distinction on the album: it’s the only track that uses a synthesizer.
*The lyrics to ‘Mr Brownstone’ were roughly jotted down on the back of a grocery bag.
*‘November Rain’ could have easily appeared on the album, but the band decided to save it for a later LP as they already had ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ and didn’t want to include more than one ballad.
*‘My Michelle’ was written as a tribute to Slash and Axl’s friend Michelle Young, after the three of them heard ‘Your Song’ on a car radio and she declared she wanted someone to pen a similar song for her too.
*Slash explanation for the heartfelt sentiment that went into ‘It’s So Easy’: “There’s a lot to say for that period of time when you just start to lose the excitement of chasing chicks. You start going after really bizarre girls, like librarians and stuff, just to catch them and say I finally went out and caught a girl that wouldn’t be my normal date.”
* Rather than plump for a traditional ‘Side A’ and ‘Side B’ structure, ‘Appetite For Destruction’ is split into ‘G’ and ‘R’ sides: the former ‘Gun’ side dealing with violence and debauchery (‘Welcome To The Jungle’, ‘Paradise City’ etc), while the latter ‘Roses’ side focused on love and sex (‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, ‘Rocket Queen’ and so forth).

TODAY IS A BIG DAY, THIS MASTERPIECE AND MY FAVORITE ALBUM OF ALL TIME TURNS 30!
I have know this album since childhood and it's been with me ever since. As a child I was always afraid of it and its cover terrified me a lot. (omg, what a stupid kid)
7 years ago, I went to my dad's collection and I decided to listen it for the first time. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you are a true gunner and if you love real music you know what I'm talking about. It was in that moment that I developed a big obsession with Gn'R, I discovered my favorite band and I found my idol.
Thank you so much @gunsnroses for the brilliant lyrics, for the awesome riffs and solos, for the great music and for your existence! ❤

"The reality is that I'm not clubbing because I don't find it's in my best interest to be out there. I am building something slowly, and it doesn't seem to be much out there as in here, in the studio and in my home. So many times, I have come down here and I had no idea that I was going to be able to. If you are working with issues that depressed the crap out of you, how do you know you can express it? At the time, you are just like, 'Life sucks.' Then you come down and you express 'Life Sucks,' but in this really beautiful kind of way.'"

"It's real cool when people are singing songs they don't really know. I work on communicating it to them, and they take the time to get into it. I like the intimacy, and I think the crowd likes the intimacy of us showing them our new songs."
RIP Magazine, 1991

Although I prefer the naked/no pants look, I have to say that I'm quite amused with the current one! Axl is the one who can wear millions of tees, shirts, pants, jacket, bandana, hat (...), all at the same time, and still look badass.
