LONG before Guns N' Roses blew the doors off the metal scene of the late 80's, Axl was in other bands. Obviously none of them were anywhere near the caliber of GNR.

This is an early audio recording of what is reported to be Axl W. Rose pre-guns era. He was in another band called Rapidfire. This clip includes a song called "Ready To Rumble". It was recorded in 1983 when Rapidfire performed at an L.A. venue three days later. It was at that show that he first met SLASH, who was in the audience. Thankfully he left Rapidfire, and the rest is history.

Guns, with only surviving member Axl, rocks the Amphitheater this Saturday night!
