If Pete Doherty is on a life-long mission to demonstrate that the more smack you take the shitter you get, Guns N’Roses’ debut proved that precisely the opposite can apply.

Axl and co delivered a milestone in modern rock, despite top-hatted guitar hero Slash being so nuts-deep in the LA heroin scene he was literally in the room when Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe ‘died’ in ’87. And GN’R have been pretty much a pile of spandex pants since.
