Guns N’ Roses released their debut LP “Appetite for Destruction” on July 21. 1987. The record debuted at number 182 on the Billboard 200 in the week of August 29, 1987, but it did not top the chart until August 6, 1988, after the band had toured and received radio and music video airplay with singles such as “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Paradise City”.
The record cost about $370,000.00 to make with a large portion of that spent in extra studio time because lead singer Axl Rose recorded the words one line at a time. Originally, Paul Stanley of KISS was going to produce the record, but the band didn’t like that he wanted to change a lot of the music and mainly the drum sound.
Is it fair for us to ask you how you first felt about the band as to how you feel about them now?
Happy 31st Birthday to “Appetite for Destruction”!!!
