I received a text message from my friend, Heather, yesterday.
“Have you listened to this yet?” she asked and attached a link to “Perhaps,” the new Guns N’ Roses song.
I had not. Heather and I attended a Guns N’ Roses concert about five years at Gillette Stadium. Famously, I had pneumonia that day, but it was Guns N’ Roses, so I attended. Gently.
I still can’t believe Elysha allowed it to happen without a protest. Credit to her.
I hadn’t known about the new song, so I gave it a listen.
I texted back:
“Not my favorite. Sounds like Warrant’s “Dog Eat Dog” album.”
“You’re right, it does. Reminded me of the whinier songs on Use Your Illusion II.”
There’s nothing better than having a friend who can compare a new Guns N’ Roses song to a fairly obscure 1992 album from a relatively obscure glam metal band that never had a single from that album chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
I feel very seen.
