axlSome of you may just be wondering who in the heck is Shark Island and why is it featuring Axl Rose and Tracii Guns? Well, Shark Island is a group that was formed back in 1979  as Shark originally and they played the scene in LA for a very long time. So many lineup changes later and the band was signed as Shark Island only getting to release two records before the band disbanded with Law Of The Order (1989) being the last released. During a show in 1986, the band decided to invite some guest on stage to perform a cover of the Led Zeppelin classic Rock N’ Roll and those guests were Guns N’ Roses Axl Rose and LA Guns Tracii Guns. Im not sure how the timeline works as far as the date of the show according to the video on Youtube, but Axl was originally in L.A. Guns in the early 80’s and Tracii Guns was also in Guns N’ Roses for a short time before leaving which allowed Slash and co. to come in. Nevertheless, this is one of those cool discoveries that you find online that you just want to share with everyone. So, check it out below and rock out.
