Guns and Roses is a band that probably should've lasted longer and been more "legendary" than they ended up being. Most of the blame goes to Axl Rose and his Hitler-like paranoia. Some of the blame can probably be shared with the excessive drug-use of the band. But still, in the short amount of time that the original band produced were together, they produced some fantastic songs.
Since I'm a Stones fan, I'm partial to their remake of Sympathy for the Devil. Sure, their version is not as good as the Stones version, but they put together a great effort. Slash's guitar-work in this performance fits well, and even though Axl's voice at times gets close to being annoying, it still works. The intricate drum-work is noteworthy as well.
Maybe someday this band will reunite ... probably not. Unfortunately, they wasted far too much time bickering, drinking, and doing drugs.
Not the video - but you can at least listen to the song ... you're welcome.
