Hair Metal Podcast: Episode 06: GUNS N ROSES & SKID ROW w/ Special Guests...MURF & ANNA!!
Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST!
The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's.
In this episode, we discuss SKID ROW and GUNS N' ROSES!
Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin welcomes special guest hosts, MURF from RAIDER FANS RADIO, and his lovely wife ANNA!
Kevin and his guests Murf and Anna discuss many fun topics in this episode:
- A Lesson In Hair Band History: The Guns N Roses / Skid Row Tour 1991-1993. On the eve of Guns N' Roses ambitious double album release of Use Your Illusion 1 & 2, in early 1991, Guns N' Roses set off on a massive world tour to help promote these albums. oOn the success of their debut album and their new album Slave To The Grind, Skid Row joined Guns N' Roses for many of these dates, including several sold out Los Angeles area concerts that host Kevin went to. Included in one of these shows was GNR's longest set, which reached about 3 1/2 hours!
- Skid Row! Kevin, Murf and Anna discuss Skid Row and the impact they had immediately on the rock and roll Hair Metal scene, including their flamboyant good looking lead singer Sebastian Bach. Anna also makes an interesting comparison of Skid Row and the 90's "Boy Bands".
- Guns N' Roses! Probably the biggest bands to come out of the "Hair Metal" scene! But many will argue that they aren't hair metal, instead they were the anti hair metal band as they look and acted different and wrote songs that weren't your cookie cutter safe pop rock material. We dive deep into their billboard hits and great albums, and we also talk about our least favorite GNR album.
Kevin would like to thank his very special guests... MURF and ANNA!
