GN'R Encyclopedia of Rock Entry

Gracii Guns

Recommended Posts

I was in my local record store/cafe this week and was flicking through a very tattered edition of the Encyclopedia of Rock by Michael Heatley. https://www.worldofbooks.com/en-gb/books/edited-by-michael-heatley/ultimate-encyclopedia-of-rock/GOR004190852?keyword=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMItrzymaqJ6AIVyNDeCh3E3wI3EAQYASABEgLu0PD_BwE

I found the entry on GN'R interesting, as it makes no mention of the Illusions nor the subsequent demise. It was published in November 1993, and everything took far longer to make back then, so the entry was likely written well before then. It makes entertaining, complementary reading of the band at their peak.

Neat to see the view of them at that point in time.

Was there a riot in 1989? Sounds like the St Louis riot in 91?

No riot in 1989. They only played the shows opening for Rolling Stones that, which were dramatic in their own right but no riot. Likely St. Louis or Montreal that is being referred to, with wrong date.
