Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Take an independent, critical look at the album that revolutionized rock-and-roll in the late-1980s as a collection of outspoken rock critics and influential musicians delve deeper into Guns and Roses' Appetite for Destruction to offer a revealing look at how it shifted the focus of music away from the hair, and back to the rock. With such tracks as "Welcome to the Jungle", "Mr. Brownstone", and "Paradise City", Appetite for Destruction served as a much needed wakeup call in the increasingly stagnant, image-obsessed world of contemporary rock-and-roll. Vital, brutal, and completely unforgiving, the freshman release by controversial front-man Axl Rose and company took the influence of Aerosmith and AC/DC to a whole new level. Now fans can hear the real story behind this classic album as band-member Izzy Stradlin reveals what it was like to be a part of music history in the making, and critics discuss the important role that Appetite for Destruction played in the evolution of rock-and-roll.
