Slash's Surprising Opinion of Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction

(Classic Rock) Slash insists Guns N' Roses debut album Appetite For Destruction is not one of his favorite records. But looking back on the band's iconic release on its 25th anniversary, he recalls how the songs almost wrote themselves, and they often found themselves performing tracks just hours after they'd been written.

Hailed as one of the greatest first albums by any band in history, the 1987 release has gone on to sell over 30 million copies.

"Appetite is not what you'd call a favorite record. It's a good record, but, to me, it's still that record we made at the time what all that sh*t was happening," Blabbermouth reports Slash saying. "When we recorded those songs it was just what we were doing. I still look at it that way I don't see it as the big record other people see. I'm too close to it."
