Origin of the name
The name Guns N Roses is the result of the merger of the names of their first two band members, namely Hollywood Rose (Axl Rose's band) and L.A. Guns (band owned by Tracii Gun). Before this name came up, there were two alternate names that would have been used by hit band "It's so simple" These are Aids and Amazon Aids.

Five minute song

Singing inspiration from neighbors
Song "Right next door to hell" on the album "Use Your Illusion I" This was inspired by a neighbor named Rose Gabriella Kantor. At that time, Gabriella claimed she had suffered from a bottle of Rose. It was this neighbor lying that inspired Rose to write the song released in 1991.

As one of the "eccentric" bands, the Guns N Roses album is always clumsy. In fact, their first album is called "Aptit for destruction" Never rejected for production because it has an album cover that is considered inappropriate.
The cover of this album is based on a similar painting by Robert Williams. Initially, the original cover of the album released in 1987 showed a woman raped by a robot. But the distributor refused and eventually replaced with a skull image of each member of Guns N & Roses.[Gambas:Youtube] (dna / rea)
