Thumbs N' Roses
A couple of rock's heaviest hitters have both released new albums within the last few days:
McCartney (as The Fireman) with 'Electric Arguments'
Axl Rose (as Guns N' Roses) with 'The Chinese Democracy'.
But what would the results have sounded like if they'd put their collective noggins together for a team-up (Maxl's Metal Hammer?) Perhaps something like...
DJ Jimmi James - Sgt. Pepper´s Paradise (short version)
DJ Jimmi James - Sgt. Pepper´s Paradise (long version)
And on a similar theme... The Cult and The Beatles in
Go home productions - She Sells Tax, Man
So let me introduce to you - a couple of other G N' R connections to the bands appearing in these two metal based booties.....
Guns N' Roses covered McCartney's 'Live And Let Die' on their "The Spaghetti Incident?" album
Axl was married to Erin Everley, the daughter of one of Macca's musical heroes Don Everly.
Matt Sorum drummer for G N' R and Velvet Revolver is a former drummer of The Cult, who, had Guns N' Roses as their opening act on a US tour in the eighties.
If this post doesn't get me blog-whacked nothing will.
