    • Is it just me, or does GNR seem to be ignored from many 80s music era documentaries?
      My opinion is that it would make GNR less amazing. The songs would of course still remain just as great as they were and Axl's aunt would get a lot more respect from me. Of course the lyrics aren't the most important reason why I love November Rain or Civil War. It's the melodies, guitar solos and the way Axl sings those lyrics. But when I hear a song that sounds good to me, my first thought actually is "whose song is this." And if there's a reason to believe that it's written by someone else than the actual performers of the song, I want to know who wrote it. Just so I can check if he's written anything else amazing.
    • Is it just me, or does GNR seem to be ignored from many 80s music era documentaries?
      you are right in a sense. from a standpoint of just enjoying the song, it really doesnt matter. most of the people REALLY dont care who wrote what, they just wanna listen to the songs they like and thats it. some even more casual music fans dont even care who (artist, band) PLAYS on the song. they just wanna listen to the song and they dont give a shit who is playing on it not everyone is like that. First thing most people do when they like a song from an artist/band that they are not familiar with is asking "WHO IS THIS?". It probably happened to everyone here in this forum when we first listened to GNR. Why did we ask "WHO IS THIS"? Because we wanted MORE! We all went after MORE songs from GNR after listening to that first song (and we all eventually fell so much in love with the band that we are here, discussing every little thing that there is to discuss about it -- and, above all, we are all hungry and thirsty for more GNR music) asking "WHO WROTE THAT" is sort of a "next" step on that search for "music gold". For example, you really like GNR and you wanna know who wrote that terrific music. Lets imagine for a second that Steven Adler was the music genius of Guns n Roses -- that he wrote every song, every note of every Appetite, and he just asked his friends Axl, Slash, Duff and Izzy to play on the songs he wrote. If that was the case, I am sure that a lot of us would pay much more attention to every Steven step outside of GNR, and that some of us would know each and every solo stuff that he released outside GNR to use your example of Aunt Mildred. Lets suppose you are really into GNR lyrics and one day you find out that Aunt Mildred has written all GNR lyrics. Its likely that your next move after finding that would be asking something like "Does Aunt Mildred writes lyrics for other bands too?" in the end of the day, the writers and the performers are the "fountain" of the "music gold". you wanna get some more, you go after them

      The only one I'm aware of is WTTJ from the Guitar Hero III rips.  Unfortunately, I do not have it.
