Appetite for Distortion - Chesney & Atkins ARE NOT Guns N' Roses | Ep. 165


Recommended Posts

NEW! Chesney & Atkins ARE NOT Guns N' Roses | Ep. 165
 
Stephen Chesney and Chad Atkins are 2 musicians who are both massive Guns N' Roses fans. In 2016 they decided to team up to make an original GNR-sounding album. Well, it was so GNR-sounding and original, many fans thought the Chesney & Adkins songs WERE Axl & Slash.
 
Chesney and Atkins share this story, as well as preview a few songs off their long-awaited upcoming album, including a song with former GNR member Teddy Zig Zag!

LOVE this interview @Gambit83.  When I lived in Raleigh for 7 years I saw Appetite for Destruction aka Not Quite GNR countless times.  I can confirm that Chad is FANTASTIC and sounds like Axl.  Such an incredible band.  We even booked them to play a party at the house I was living in with a bunch of people at that time.  I was also there for the Appetite For Destruction/Dizzy Reed show at the Lincoln Theater that Chad mentioned. 

What Chad forgot to mention was that the show was on Halloween night AND there was a costume contest that Dizzy was the judge for.  I dressed up as the 2002 VMA Axl.  Dizzy told me once I got onstage that anyone dressed as a member of GNR was ineligible to win hahaha.  During AFD's performance I was brought up onstage to sing WTTJ with the band.  I was absolutely terrible and I feel sorry for the audience having to listen to me, but goddamn was that fun.

Holy shit Vehicular Blues is awesome. I've been telling people it's a GNR song called Moonshine for the last few months. 

I can't wait for this album. What a great support band they'd make for GNR

I used to see these guys when they would swing through the ATL from about 2005-2009. I’ve met chad a couple times and he was very cool.  It’s amazing that he’s still going.  I’m sure he’s probably had no fewer that 3-5 different Izzys, Duffs, Stephens, and Slashes over the years.
