Guns N' Roses Plan "Appetite" Anniversary Celebrations

July 13, 2007 9:51 AM ET

Looking for a way to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Guns N' Roses classic Appetite for Destruction? So are the rest of the current lineup and an assortment of former members. Onetime Gun Steven Adler plus former L.A. Gun Tracii Guns will play a show on July 28 at Hollywood's Key Club with their own bands, Adler's Appetite and L.A. Guns, to "pay tribute" to the 1987 release. The "new" GN'R will be performing on the actual date of Appetite's release, July 21, in Osaka, Japan. And of course you could start lining up two weeks early for Velvet Revolver's August 6 tour date at Verona, New York's Turning Stone Resort Casino. And if you want to know what Gilby Clarke, Josh Freese, Paul Tobias or Buckethead are doing to commemorate this special anniversary, you're on your own.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
