Guns N' Roses took the stage on the second night of Coachella for an 80's rock infused set.
With a cast on his leg Axel Rose sat in on a rock throne (borrowed from Dave Grohl, who designed it when he broke his leg) and belted out "Welcome to the Jungle." Fans cheered.
Was this just a sad Las Vegas show on steroids? Another example of a band, well past its prime, getting a fleeting moment of glory and respectful fans obliging them. Or is there still an audience for authentic 80's glam rock - the likes of which Guns N' Roses can deliver like no other.
How you feel about that question may also suggest how you will view AC/DC's upcoming tour - where Axel Rose will be the lead singer! Is this nostalgia on parade, or rock and roll greats coming to kick some ass?
