Does anyone else wish that GN'R had at some point done a few Pop style albums or songs? What I mean is basically like Pop Meets GN'R. Think of The Rolling Stones' Pop Period with Brian Jones...Those kind of tunes but as done by GN'R.

Why? If you want a poppy, clean version of Guns go listen to Motley Crue :jerkoff:

No! I really dont think it'd be good. I want to hear more of the style they have done with Chinese Democracy and whatever they had in 1999 like Checkmate.

No. It's GnR, GnR is a rock band. If you want a rock band that turned into a pop band, listen to bon jovi.

No thanks, Axl is way to good for songs like that one. I personally never liked "JAS" nothing against it, but is not a great track, nothing I would want to hear when I wake up in the morning.

no! there are plenty of pop bands out there already.

GNR has and always will be a hard rock band. Why change now?

OP,what do you mean with "stones pop period with Brian Jones"?
that certainly wasnt a "pop period"..it was the blues..rock n roll..
you seem to have singled out two poppy songs from that period.

They've done songs with pop hooks and singles on the radio, so they had their pop period.

GN'R wasn't pop? What about "Don't Cry", "Sweet Child O'Mine", or "Yesterdays"?

Sure. The more music the better.
I am an Axl Rose fan, so I would love to have more music by him.
I feel sorry for people who are so close minded that they can't see past general genres and stereotypes. I would love to hear Axl sing all types of music. Pop, country, blues, gospel, metal, etc.
