Guns N' Roses's 1987 release Appetite For Destruction featured the smash hits Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, and that soundtrack to summer love, Sweet Child o’ Mine, which Slash always despised. The best-selling debut album of all time in the US set the band on a hedonistic and lawless path that drew comparisons with the Rolling Stones and saw them labelled "the most dangerous band in the world". They're headlining the Pyramid Stage today, Saturday 24th June, and Guns N' Roses at Glastonbury 2023 is being live streamed for free on BBC iPlayer.
The Rock N Roll Hall of Famers have never played the Somerset festival before, and this may be something of a dream come true for their swaggering, top hat-wearing, luscious-locked legendary lead guitarist, who was born in London and raised in Stoke-on-Trent before relocating with his family to Los Angeles. No doubt a decision he rues to this day.
Slash, along with current band members Axl Rose, Duff McKagan, Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer and Melissa Reese have been gearing up for their Glasto slot by dusting off their biggest hits, November Rain and Mr. Brownstone among them, as well as some neglected classics, including Anything Goes for the first time since 1988, Pretty Tied Up for the first time since '92, and Bad Obsession for the first time since '93.
What will greet them at Worthy Farm remains to be seen, as whoever it was that formulated the Saturday line-up clearly has a sense of humour. Before Guns N' Roses take to it, the stage will be graced by a ludicrously eclectic array of artists, even by Glastonbury's standards, including Rick Astley, Aitch, Lewis Capaldi and Lizzo.
