Thursday video - Guns N Roses

So how old do you feel now?  Yep, the dual Use Your Illusion CD's were released over twenty years ago.  Ouch.  But, thankfully YouTube has come along and preserved a treasure trove of video for future generations.  Here's my favorite track from the Illusion Era:

Three still-undeniable facts can be gleaned from this video:

1.  GNR was one hell of a live band with superb musicians;

2.  Axl Rose is probably the last truly great rock n' roll frontman (yes, even including you, Bono); and

3.  Slash must play those leads purely from sense memory because he clearly cannot see a thing behind his hair.
