Has any other band in the past 30 years made it SO big on their first album and then flopped so hard on their second?
They had an entire album full of one hit wonders. That shit is so rock'n'roll. Lots of bands hit it somewhat big and then disappear. Because most bands are lucky to have ONE song. Or plenty slowly build a following and then breakout and then burnout. GNR went from playing clubs to selling out ampitheaters back to "what the fuck happened?" in what seems to be a unique fashion.
