7. Axel Rose and his band of rock & roll mercenaries — that is, the paper fiction known as Guns 'N Roses – have scheduled a 12-show residency in Las Vegas in October and November to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Appetite for Destruction's release. Astute fans might remember the poster art below, which was included with original pressings of the record but later pulled on account of its graphic imagery.
