OK, I was looking at the list of stuff Brian compiled, having to do with the posts I have made, and then, once
the links expired, rarely did I re-up anything.......As always, rethinking and trying to find ways to improve this here blog thing, (I want it to be the worlds BEST ), so my current feeling is this: Although I have many many MANY discs we haven't shared yet, I have to (personally) understand that a hell of a lot of good music has been here, and then expired......hell, I've been bitching about"re-up" requests for year, but, fuck, everyone hasn't been here for years and years.......it takes a minute to realize this, sometimes, but basically here is what I am saying: If there is anything you want to hear, or read, or whatever, please, this is about what YOU want, not about what my selfish notions dictate.......
I guess it just dawned on me as I realize so many people did not even realize the blog's true history, a lot of rare stuff has passed this way.It is not only selfish, but counterproductive to operate in such a manner......so, here is how it be now.......you want to hear something, be it previously posted or just something you've wanted, hit me up........if something from GG Alin or Lilly Allen (cute huh?) or Black Pearl or Black Rose or Black Sabbath or Black Debbeth or Blackfoot or whatever......ask away, I won't even make fun of you anymore.......see, Madame Angela has mellowed my spirit and taught me how to not abuse my fellow man, no matter HOW much fun it is.
OK, to start this "new age" off, my homeboy Spider asked the other day about this one......I THINk I've
posted it before, not sure and don't care enough to go searching, but what we DO have here is a quite interesting 2 disc set, "Guns N Roses Family Tree"....as I'm sure you know, GnR sprung from Hollywood Rose and LA Guns, but there is enough rare shit here that even if you think Guns and Roses suck, you will likely still find this of interest.
Some highlights: First disc, an ancient "Welcome to the Jungle" from parts of Hollywood Rose, "Sex Action" by LA Guns, "Elected" (the Alice Cooper jam) from Duff, Matt, and Steve Jones of the Pistols.....there is also a rare GnR track, "Nice Boys", which I don't think I've ever seen before......this album is a gem, assuming you have SOMETHING of a soft spot for Guns N Roses, to me, they summarized 1980-90's glam-metal better than anyone else was doing it. Guilty pleasure, perhaps, for some of you, but I do dig this album.
here ya go Spider, don't be a stranger you burnout motherfucker you!
