Captain Jack Talks 30th Anniversary of Appetite For Destruction
30 years ago today, Guns N Roses "Appetite for Destruction" was released.
In 1987, Guns N’ Roses changed the face of hard rock with ‘Appetite for Destruction’. Loudwire has produced an amazing documentary featuring interviews with original band members Slash and Duff McKagan, as well as Ice-T, Chris Jericho, David Ellefson, Billy Sheehan, and Jason Newsted, this documentary tells the story of the greatest rock debut of all time. Let's talk about the Rockford, Appetite for Destruction influence.
April of 1988 I made my way to The Coronado Theater to see a band and a show I will never forget. Guns N Roses was awesome live and the debut album they were supporting became legendary.
Appetite for Destruction was an old school way of doing things. In an era of new and "polished" rock, GNR took it back to a dangerous and dirty way of recording a rock record.
I went back to The Coronado (Thanks, Chris) to talk about the impact of Appetite for Destruction, at the first place I saw the might Guns N Roses.
Check out my thoughts, and then check out the Loudwire documentary Guns N’ Roses ‘Appetite for Destruction’: The Story of Rock’s Most Dangerous Album.
