Album Notes
Guns N' Roses: W. Axl Rose (vocals, piano, synthesizer, percussion, programming); Slash (acoustic & electric guitars, 6-string bass); Izzy Stradlin (guitar, percussion, background vocals); Dizzy Reed (piano, keyboards, background vocals); Duff McKagan (bass, background vocals); Matt Sorum (drums, background vocals); Steven Adler (drums).Additional personnel includes: Shannon Hoon, Michael Monroe (vocals); Gilby Clarke, Mike Staggs, Paul Huge (guitar); Matthew McKagan, Rachel West, Robert Clark, Jon Trautwein (horns); Stuart Bailey, Reba Shaw, The Waters (background vocals).Hard-rock juggernauts Guns 'N' Roses arrived as rock & roll saviors in a dark time of generic hair metal and bloated pop. With only five studio albums to draw from (one being the all-covers SPAGHETTI INCIDENT), nearly a third of the material on GREATEST HITS is unsurprisingly devoted to other people's songs. Inclusions range from a dramatic version of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heavens Door" and an outsized take on Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" to punk classic "Ain't It Fun" and doo-wop nugget "Since I Don't Have You." The band's original songs, however, are the heart of G'N'R's appeal. Start with the quintessential heavy-rock anthem "Welcome to the Jungle." Amid the thunderous time-keeping and tasty riffing are slinky grooves, sexy swagger, and quite an aura of danger. The acoustic "Patience" found these tattooed bad boys showing off a softer side, while archetypal power-ballad "Sweet Child O' Mine" is a perfect hybrid of sentiment and soaring guitar solos. Think of GREATEST HITS as a sampler for the sumptuous buffet that is G'N'R's recorded oeuvre.

Guns N' Roses - Greatest Hits

Created: 06/07/08
Guns N Roses is an American Rock band formed by Axl Rose (frontman) and Tracii Guns (guitarist) in 1985, hence the name 'Guns N Roses'. The latter Tracii Gun left the group to reform his own group L.A Guns. With the introduction of Slash replacing Tracii the band made its name within the industry with several number one hits including 'Sweet child of mine' and 'Knocking on heaven's door'. Other great hits like 'Paradise City' pushed the bands boundry even further, the success had began hitting every airwave across the world reaping the benefits of fame.

The album sold millions world wide making G & R's one of the biggest selling heavy rock bands of all times. The Greatest hits album is still selling extremely well today with 'born again' listeners like myself buying there records. A must have, buy it now!.

Gins N' Roses - Greatest Hits CD

Created: 19/07/10
Only one song "Sweet child of mine" that strikes me as their best and original. All the rest of the CD is average and probably better recorded by other artists. Sorry guys!
