Obscurity begone

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.”

Heather’s response:

“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.
