Afd_locked_n_loadedIt has been quite some time since we last did a rock video of the week and there is a video that I have buzzing about lately from one of the best pure hard rock bands to come out of the 80’s. On June 29, 2018, Guns N’ Roses is going to be releasing one hell of a box set to commemorate one of the greatest debuts of all time in Appetite For Destruction with the Lock N Loaded edition. Here is what is included in the box set according to wikipedia, “The box set will include 73 songs on four CDs (49 of which were previously unreleased) and seven 12-inch 180-gram LP’s. It will include remastered versions of the album, Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide, an EP of b-sides, 25 recordings from the group’s 1986 Sound City Studios sessions, and two previously unreleased tracks from the group’s sessions with Mike Clink. All of the songs from the G N’ R Lies album will also be included, with the exception of “One in a Million”. In addition to the music, the set will include a 96 page book with unreleased photos from Rose’s personal archive, 12 lithographs visualizing each song on the album, and assorted replica memorabilia.”

gnrThe real thing that I am buzzing about is the band has released a never before seen music video for one of it’s classic tracks. According to the video, the video for It’s So Easy was worked on, but it was never finished hence why it’s unreleased. The video for the track starts off with Axl talking to the crowd at the world famous Cathouse that was once owned by Riki Rachtman and he tells them about how they were given money to make a video for MTV to try and help sell more records. He then tells them that he wants to make the video on GNR wants to see and then the chaos and excess begins. The video itself is primarily a performance based video with some extra shenanigans thrown in there to show you how decadent the 80’s really were. There is just something so amazing about seeing the original lineup in this video. There is something magical and electrifying that you wish you could see once again and you know these guys had it. Check out the video below and be sure to pick up the box set.
