Nah, not yet... but a 2nd one has already been tracked. The 1st one is supposed to be released early (Feb?) next year. Rumormill has it #2 will be out in the summer, but with RCA, who the hell knows...

A Cult fan here. Ian didn't play drums on any albums. Not sure past Sonic Temple.
Dreamtime-Nigel Preston Love-Mark Brzezicki (Big Country)
Electic-Les Warner
Sonic Temple-Micky Curry (Cinderella)
Loved GNR's Appetite and Lies album also. Great acoustic songs on Lies.
Janes Addiction's Nothings Shocking and Ritual were great. The triggered sounding snare sometimes bugs me though. Todd F.

Just a nod to West Arkeen, gone but not forgotten, and a bigger part of why AFD's songs were so much better than what followed. The man could play a Les Paul. Too bad he wasn't cute enough to be in the band.

Sean I got my 80's bands mixed up. Micky Curry played on a lot of other 80's albums Bryan Adams, Hall and Oates, Honeymoon Suite etc. He didn't play with Cinderella, that was Fred Coury. Sorry. Todd F.

What did Dizzy play? Was he Izzy's replacement before Gilby joined the band?

I read this thread yesturday. Then when i was out last night i heard Mr. Brownstone on the radio. Dug up the tape when i got home, and couldn't come up with a good reason why i stopped listening to it. I do have my favorites, but there is not one song on AFD that i don't like. 17 years for a rock record that was dismissed at the time of its inception for "only having 3 chords" that can still hold its own isn't too shabby.

On a whim, tried to listen to the use your illusion cds, but 80% of the songs sounded like DEMOs.

Huh. His band 'Hookers & Blow' is going to be at my club sometime in the next few weeks. I've never heard 'em...just wondering what to expect.

Sometime in the early nineties, I used to see Steven Adler advertising in the Recycler. Drum lessons with "ex GnR drummer Steven Adler"

It depends on your frame of reference. Either GnR were the last in a long line, or the first in a long line. Either way, I think they opened the door for Faith no More, RHCP and Jane's Addiction, who opened the door for:

Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Hole, Sublime, Smashing Pumpkins, Oasis, 311, STP, Blind Melon, The Verve, Tonic, Third Eye Blind, Everclear, Cake, Prodigy, Lit, Oleander, Cypress Hill, Urge Overkill, Helmet, Screaming Trees, Live, Black Crowes, Elastica, The Eels, Rage Against the Machine, Daft Punk, Semisonic, Filter, Supergrass, Orgy, Cornershop, Silverchair, Blur, Pulp...

Most of whom are either gone or much less active than they were in the nineties. Weird how so many dropped off the face of the planet.

First good 'modern' disc I've heard in a LONG time.

somebody was talking about Slash's guitar tone and how they wanted to get a "real" les paul. He actually was using a custom made les paul replica on Appetite.
I heard that the crowd was dubbed in on Live Like a *#&) Suicide. anyone else know anything about that ? I mean they are pretty shockingly tight on there but it does sound live.

I'm reading Slash's book and it made me revive this thread. I listened to "Appetite" again with a new found respect.

There was a period of time in the late '90's where I would keep spotting Slash out at rock shows in Chicago (usually at the Metro). No top hat, but I was always amazed that he was still rockin' the stretch pants.
AFD is an amazing album.

Appetite for Destruction was carried by Sweet Child and Paradise City, IMO, the rest of it was fillers...
This couldn't be more wrong, IMO. I read the follow up explanation...I had the album a year before Chil hit...if it hadn't have broken them so big, maybe they'd have made another good record.

I also agree with Adler being an important ingredient. He played like ass live, though...I had a million bootlegs--they were downright terrible. Still, Civil War is the only one on Illusions that has that "swagger" as it was put earlier.

It was a great moment.

Gun's and Roses helped open the door for Cake? I don't think so. Appetite is a gr8 album though.

Totally agree. Im only 1/4 way through it. The dude was 19 YEARS OLD when he composed alot of the stuff for appetite....and pretty much a street kid. Interesting story about the scene back then, and how that band came to be...

Appetite

Great record! They recorded it on a trident console. They tracked as a band and overdubbed vocals and solo's later. The band tracking took three days and overdubbing the next four. The album was tracked and mixed in under 20 days.

Really?
Might wanna check your facts.
It cost $370k to record. An extravagant sum at the time.
According to this RS article it took weeks in rehearsal.

The Making of 'Appetite for Destruction' : Rolling Stone

2 weeks to record the beds.
A month to do the Guitar overdubs and lot's of editing.

And I guarnatee you it wasn't mixed in under 20 days either.

I never liked the band, never liked their songs either.

amazing album.

kinda cool but when i was like 5, duff lived next door to me (studio city, laurel terrace right off laurel canyon). he ended up becoming family friends and babysat me. i remember he would always give me a ****load of toys. he was always really chill. i never saw slash or axl much, but the few times i remember seeing them they would drink and smoke outside the house constantly and axl would be yelling nonsense in the middle of the street.

There's a fair amount of cowbell on the album, which I think played an important part in the album's (and the band's) success.

What kind of music were you into in '87-'92?

I have a friend who didn't really care for AFD and I am curious to see if there is any correlation in the bands you liked and he liked at the time.

Lot's of different stuff.
But none of the US Rock/Glam hairband stuff. And really, GnR's were a hairband. It's pretty obvious to me when you see the "Sweet Child Of Mine" video. Axl's hair is all teased up liek your typical LA Hairband.

And I simpyl can't stand his Ethel Merman "singing". Just terrible.
