No, I’m not talking about Axl’s All Star Touring Band, but rather some awesome live footage of Guns ‘n Roses from back in ’88 at the height of their powers. Despite out of tune guitars, bum notes and Axl’s occassionally lazy vocal phrasing, this show rocks, and the energy in these songs is even better the studio versions. Too bad drugs and egos would soon bring these guys down.
BTW, in case you’re wondering, the venue is the Ritz, which is now Webster Hall in NYC. The show feels so vital that it’s crazy to think that this was 18 years ago…
