They play a rendition of 'It's So Easy'.
Foo Fighters delivered what was possibly one of their most memorable sets ever at Firenze Rocks festival in Italy this week, as they invited fellow rockers Guns N Roses on stage for a joint rendition of the latter's song 'It's So Easy'. Anytime Foo Fighters join forces with other bands it's epic, but this was something else.

Dave Grohl's band were headlining the festival last night (June 14th 2018) and decided to pay tribute to GNR with a cover of their 1987 debut single 'It's So Easy' from the iconic album 'Appetite For Destruction'. But things only got better when Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagen joined them ahead of their own headline slot tonight.

After years of melancholic weather, Download Festival finally got five days of the stunning weather it deserved, as over 100,000 fans descended on the UK's home of rock n roll and the likes of Guns N Roses, Ozzy Osbourne and Avenged Sevenfold left everyone raising their hand horns.
Held at Donington Race Track, the previous home to Monsters of Rock festival, it was overhauled and refreshed as Download Festival after a brief stint as Ozzfest during the late 90s. Though whatever the name, the venue has become a holy site to rock and metal fans, a site where fans would annually flock too much like a pilgrimage.
With the vicissitudes of rock n roll over the last few decades, and the capricious tides of metal since the nascent of Monsters of Rock, all the way through to Download, the festival is now more eclectic than ever.

The most exciting acts to watch out for at this year's event.
Held on the famous Donington Race Track, just a stone's throw away from East Midlands Airport, the three-day festival has been home to rock fans for decades, hosting the Monsters of Rock festival from 1980 for 16 years. Since then, Download was curated and whilst replacing Monsters of Rock, it has never lost its appeal or hype, as the biggest acts have frequented the festival since the Download inauguration.

Over the years, nearly 100,000 metal fans would annually flock to the site, ready and pumped with their Hand Horns in the air, head banging and mosh pitts a plenty.

Loads of previously unreleased material and a photobook included.
GUNS N' ROSES are set to launch a totally remastered and expanded edition of their seminal debut album 'Appetite For Destruction' 31 years after it was first released. The new re-issue, entitled 'Locked N' Loaded' comes this summer, in time for their UK and European tour.

The new edition is set to feature a grand total of 73 songs, including 49 previously unreleased tracks, across four discs and seven 12-inch vinyls. It will also include their 1986 debut EP 'Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide', a selection of B-sides and 25 as yet unreleased recordings from their 1986 Sound City studios sessions.
Guns N' Roses join Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy Osbourne at the top of the bill for Download 2018.
Reformed rock legends Guns N’ Roses have been revealed as the third and final headliners for the 2018 edition of Download Festival.
The group will headline the Saturday night of the three-day festival, which is due to take place at Donington Park from June 8th to June 10th. They join fellow rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and the heavy metal outfit Avenged Sevenfold at the top of the bill.
It’s a serious coup for the festival, and marks a continuation of the new-found co-operation between tempestuous lead singer Axl Rose and band members Slash and Duff McKagan. Gilbert Clarke, Matt Sorum and original drummer Steven Adler complete the line-up, representing four-fifths of the ‘classic’ Guns N’ Roses line-up that recorded 1987’s epochal debut album Appetite For Destruction.

She's a big fan of the band and this week she got to perform with them.
Pink could not believe her luck when she got to appear on stage with GUNS N' ROSES in New York City this week, singing along to the band's 1988 song 'Patience'. It's safe to say it's one of the most momentous moments of her entire career.

Currently on their Not In This Lifetime tour, Guns N' Roses hit Madison Square Garden on Wednesday (October 11th 2017) for a concert that lasted a good three hours and included covers of Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun' and Glen Campbell's 'Wichita Lineman'. But the highlight of the show was Pink coming in to finish their rendition of 'Patience'.

Artists continue to pay their respects to the late Soundgarden frontman.
When a music legend dies, their peers come out to celebrate their fallen brother or sister in the only way they know how: performing. Since Soundgardan frontman Chris Cornell committed suicide on May 18th 2017, artists everywhere continue to dedicate their live performances to him in the form of touching tributes.

Here are just a few of the best Chris Cornell tributes so far:

Official confirmation finally arrives.
It's official; GUNS N' ROSES featuring Axl Rose and Slash will re-unite for the 2016 Coachella Music And Arts Festival in April, marking their first performance together in twenty years. It's probably one of the most seminal reunions in rock history - and one that many thought would never happen.
There's been speculation of a reunion for weeks and now the news has finally been confirmed. Despite years of animosity between Slash and Axl Rose in particular, the pair have appeared to clear the air - at least for the sake of the band and their fans. Original bassist Duff McKagan will also join the group and, while there's no word yet on guitarist Izzy Stradlin, sources told Consequence Of Sound that Matt Sorum will replace original drummer Steven Adler.

We're pretty sure that the Iron Maiden lead singer speaks for a great many people in the music industry.
In a new interview with Le Journal de Montréal, the rock veteran recalled an incident on May 16th, 1988 when the Gunners, then on the rise to their meteoric success with their debut album Appetite For Destruction, opened for the more established Iron Maiden in Quebec City in Canada.
