Hello all and welcome to NewGNR.com - the place to feed ALL your GUNS N' ROSES needs!
Ok well, not anymore, really.
I launched NewGNR.com in early 2001, previously under a different domain. It's dedicated to Axl and his *new friends* so to speak.
To cut a very very long story short - saw them first when I was 7 years old - watched November Rain a countless times on TV - listening to their music took a big chunk of my life, and when Internet became popular around 1998, wheels were set in motion concerning this site. Good old IRC days. Then came 2001, Axl and a bunch of new guys in his band rocked Rio. I downloaded videos AND WAS IMMEDIATELY SOLD on them. They inspired me, and in the hopes that it would do the same for other people I tried to maximize their exposure on the internet as best I could - by dedicating a website to them and keeping it updated for the fans.
It's now 2011 and I'm struggling to keep it updated as things in life do change.
