16 Absolutely Insane Behind-The-Scenes Guns N’ Roses Stories

 

 

When you think “rock ‘n’ roll,” wild Guns N’ Roses stories probably spring to mind. The band seemed primed to be unstoppable after they formed in Los Angeles in 1985. They released their first album, Appetite for Destruction, in 1987, and it almost instantly smashed records: it sold 30 million copies worldwide, and became one of the best-selling debuts of all time. By 1988, GnR was basically the biggest band on the planet. Guns N’ Roses songs are some of the most massive hits of the ’80s, and a number of their albums are considered rock classics.

But early success doesn’t always guarantee staying power. GnR’s big hits came with big personalities, and clashes within the band led to countless lineup changes and prolonged breakups fans feared would be permanent. But Guns N’ Roses couldn’t keep off the stage – even though the guys performing under the name weren’t the same.

Even GnR newbies can appreciate the gnarly tales from Guns n’ Roses that have popped up over the years. Rumors tell of countless trashed dressing rooms, mountains of consumed drugs, and even a few brushes with death. The craziest things Guns N’ Roses ever did are the stuff of rock legend – what other band dabbled in everything from fights with other musicians to petty theft from groupies?
