The 13 greatest uses of harmonica in rock and metal

Recommended Posts

9. Guns N’ Roses – Bad Obsession


Although it wasn’t committed to record until 1991’s Use Your Illusion I, Bad Obsession reportedly dates back to Guns N’ Roses’ early days, co-written as a chronicle of their insatiable narcotic appetite by guitarist Izzy Stradlin and friend of the band West Arkeen, who would himself pass away from an overdose in 1997. There’s real outlaw energy in the bluesy, country-fried composition, with Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe dropping in not only some brilliantly driving harmonica, but also some cheeky saxophone, too.

Shit man, I wasn't aware that was Michael Monroe on harmonica. I had just assumed it was Andreadis, took me to school with that one.

Unlike Dizzy and Chris, Teddy Zig Zag never played on any of the albums.
