Pre-Guns N' Roses Axl Rose Demo Posted Online

(hennemusic) An audio sample of Axl Rose's pre-Guns N' Roses band Rapidfire has surfaced online. Portions of the track "Ready To Rumble" are being shared by Rapidfire guitarist Kevin Lawrence, who along with Roses, bassist Mike Hammernick and drummer Chuck Gordon made up the group.

Axl joined Rapidfire shortly after his arrival in Los Angeles; the band recorded a 5-song demo on May 25, 1983, which included "Ready To Rumble."

When Rapidfire disbanded, Rose joined the first lineup of L.A. Guns before forming Hollywood Rose with Izzy Stradlin. Axl would later form Guns N' Roses with Tracii Guns and two other members of L.A. Guns. Check it out here.
