LA Guns singer and frontman Phil Lewis had a recent interview with Thorn of Rock and revealed his opinion about Guns N’ Roses’ big success.
Lewis said he thinks that all Guns N Roses’ albums except ‘Appetite’ are pretty average.
Here is what he said:
“Well, yeah, of course. Guns N’ Roses were a phenomenon, and they were a band that were in the same place at the same time. We shared personnel. Tracii had been involved with both bands.
We did good. LA Guns did really, really good. We got gold records. We did incredibly well. But it was never enough. Compared to Guns N’ Roses, it was one percent, and that’s a little bit frustrating, of course.
The difference between us and Guns N’ Roses is they had one album. And people are gonna be mad at me for saying this. [GN’R’s 1987 debut] ‘Appetite for Destruction’ is a masterpiece, but everything else isn’t – everything else is pretty average.
Now, we just carried on. We just went one album after another, interesting albums. And now with this reunion [between me and Tracii], we’ve been together for three years and we’ve already put out three records – we’ve put two studio albums and one live record. Guns N’ Roses hasn’t written one song.“
