Guns N Roses concert Review – Key Arena 12-16-2011
When Guns N Roses took off, I was in high school. This band’s attitude and overall rock sound was the shot in the arm the rock world needed and I personally loved their music. These guys were the under dogs of rock n’ roll music scene. Their wild lifestyles in the early days made record companies want to stay away, but with clubs selling out, fans growing in huge numbers, so the business could not ignore them anymore. They were the real deal and everyone knew it. The Appetite For Destruction cd is hailed as one of the very best in rock history. The cd shot the band through the stratosphere. They toured like crazy and released a few other music releases (ex Lies and the Illusions for example), but the massive success took its toll on the group. The band’s front man W. Axl Rose wanted to take the group in a different direction, which would lead to the original line-ups demise. After the breakup, Axl began working in that direction on his next music endeavor, Chinese Democracy. The cd got its share of bad press because of the timeframe it took to make. W. Axl Rose wanted his vision a certain way and he wasn’t about to put something out to just sell it. That is the same way he looks at his show performance. He has taken flak over the years for late start times because he only goes on when he is ready to go on. When Chinese Democracy came out, it was criticized by the critics and some fans, but the cd was a great cd of music. This was a new band in my opinion with the old name. The “new” Guns toured some and has been off for a few years so when I heard they were playing in my neck of the woods, I was not about to miss it. I wanted to see for myself what it was like in concert after seeing the original. All I can say is Holy S**T, they were AWESOME. This group led by Axl Rose features guitarists Richard Fortus, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, and DJ Ashba. These guys have a great energy about them, pay tribute to Slash’s work and add their own touches on the music. The band also includes Dizzy Reed (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Frank Ferrer (drums), and Chris Pitman (keyboards). HUGE talent in this band! When the band took the stage at the Key Arena with its first rocking’ chords of Chinese Democracy, they BROUGHT IT. The band ripped through a staggering 3 hour show (10:30-1:30) of classic Guns, Chinese Democracy songs and killer covers. Axl and the band were on fire. We were getting our monies worth that night. Guns N’ Roses blew me away. I was really impressed how well they played together, how they paid their respects to the original songs and how fun a rock show this was. Axl gets a lot of criticizing, but he really makes great music and puts on a great show. The Seattle crowd got a treat when hometown hero Duff McKagen joined the band for the GNR classic You Could Be Mine. It was really cool seeing them onstage again. I think it is awesome that they were inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame this year. That has to be the ultimate middle finger to all those in the early days that said they wouldn’t be anything. It will be interesting to see what the future brings or Guns. Will the Hall of Fame bring the original together again or will Axl follow his music vision. I will be there either way. Like I said, he comes on when he is ready and only when he is ready. When he came out in Seattle, he brought everything he had and gave one of the best performances I have ever seen him do. If I could, I would have went north to Vancouver BC for the second show instead of heading south for home….it was THAT GOOD. I look forward to seeing what is next from Guns N’ Roses!!!!
