Since roaring out of LA in 1987 with their debut album Appetite For Destruction they have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, and created just as many newspaper headlines, and as line ups have come and gone, the legend of Guns N’ Roses has continued to grow exponentially.
But it was with the release of their albums Use Your Illusion I & II - now more than 20 years ago - that the band cemented their place in musical history, proving these LA reprobates were far more than one trick ponies and in the process becoming the first group ever to occupy the top two positions on the Billboard 200 chart.
