Guns N’Roses Box Set Coming in June
The wait is over for the answer to the elusive Guns N’ Roses mystery–just what is up with that countdown clock?
Guns N’ Roses will be releasing a massive Appetite for Destruction box set on June 29. An unboxing video detailing the collection was prematurely released via the Guns N’ Roses YouTube channel. The clock created a great deal of speculation that the band was going to reunite with all original members, but that seems unlikely given the fact that former drummer Steven Adler has just announced a new super group fronted by American Idol rocker and Tony-Award nominated vocalist Constantine Maroulis.
The box set includes four CDs featuring a total of 73 tracks, 49 of which are previously unreleased. It also features the original 1987 album on two vinyl LPs, seven 7-inch yellow vinyl singles, the Live Like a Suicide EP, a collection of b-sides, and the three-LP Sound City Session, which includes 25 unreleased songs from the 1986 sessions.
The collection is also encased in an “embossed faux leather and wood cabinet.” It will feature stickers, guitar picks, replica flyers and ticket stubs, photos, posters buttons and coins.
