Sounds like it would be easier to list the stuff he doesn't like.

Right. I guess Bon Jovi would be in this list :lol: Apart from the obvious (Poison etc.) he said he didn't like Whitesnake's 1987 hit album at all and it seems he didn't like INXS.

I also don't think he liked Van Halen too much.

He doesn’t like Eagles of Death Metal. 

He said in 1987 that he “could listen to anything from Bananarama to Metallica’s latest album” (which was Master of Puppets, at the time). He said in 1990 that he liked Public Enemy. He said

Good ones!

I wonder how he came to hear Lusk? Is that story known?

Accrding to Chris, Billy Howerdel gave Axl a copy of the album. He liked the weird guitar sounds and the synth orchestra so much that Chris was hired as the bands newest member.

I don't remember reading about the album, but there's these about Metallica:

He was also blasting FNM in his car stereo:

 

But I think he was wrong to be jealous of them :lol:

And in 1992 he said he liked the Mr. Bungle album.

I could never get into FNM. The song “Epic” alone reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxxBXpnn2Jw&t=1m1s&ab_channel=Movieclips

Has Axl ever mentioned Def Leppard?

I know a few members of GNR and Leppard have jammed/hung out together and I believe Axl and Joe Elliott got on ok.

Elliot was on the AFD show and talked a bit about knowing some of Guns.

Axl turned me onto Zeppelin. It took awhile though. I thought I was going to hear D’Yer Maker and be blown away. I was not.

Zeppelin is the kind of band that grows on you immensely. I started with Latter Days and it was Kashmir that got me hooked. Now I own their entire discography and they're one of my favourite bands but it did take some time for the material to sink in.

What's the best place to start? I only have the Greatest Hits. 

Greatest Hits is a great collection of songs.

I own Hard Promises, Into The Great Wide Open, Full Moon Fever, Wildflowers and Highway Companion. Love them all from start to finish.

Wildflowers is often hailed as his best album but I'd go with Into The Great Wide Open/Full Moon Fever. Jeff Lynne is the shit.

Great, thanks! I'll get that one bought then. Been meaning to get some of his proper albums for a while really, so good to get a starting point!

What's your favourite Beatles album?

I think I'd have to say the Best of the Beatles.
