In the world of hard rock, standing out means having a brand. But for one hugely successful group, they are the brand. Guns N’ Roses exploded onto the scene and quickly built a nefarious reputation with gritty and raw performances. With more than 100 million records sold and fans all over the world Guns N’ Roses is one of the biggest acts in music history. But the stats and accolades don’t tell the whole story. The band’s bad behavior including drug use, public feuds and on-stage meltdowns earned them an unsavory reputation among promoters, but the unpredictable nature of their live shows also became part of their allure. The chaos culminates in frontman Axl Rose launching himself at a photographer in the crowd during a show, then storming off stage, ending the show early. Despite a legacy of disorder and even band breakups over the years, Guns N’ Roses reunites and continues to sell out arenas worldwide. Helping to tell the story of Guns N’ Roses is Sirius/XM Radio Personality Eddie Trunk along with The Metal Voice contributor Perrin Wolfson and Stephen Davis, author Watch You Bleed: The Saga of Guns N’ Roses.
