Classic Albums

CA01 Guns N’ Roses – Use Your Illusion II

Listen:Apple PodcastsSpotifySoundcloud

In the first of our new Riot Act Classic Albums series, Steve and Remfry discuss not one, but two records released on September 17th 1991 by unquestionably the biggest band in the world at that time … Guns N’ Roses. 

They talk about the extravagances of the ‘blockbuster album’ era, the relative merits and failings of each record individually, Izzy Stradlin’s often underappreciated contribution to G N’R, the controversies that dogged the band at this time, the firing of original drummer Steve Adler plus much much more across 2+ hours. 

Not only that but Steve also attempts to compile his own version of Use Your Illusion that would fit neatly on to one compact disc (that’s a 150 minute album condensed down to just 80 minutes kids it ain’t as easy as it looks!)
