Three Ex-Members of Guns N' Roses Reunite at Hollywood Show

July 30, 2007 9:42 AM ET

Saturday's highly anticipated Guns N' Roses semi-reunion at Hollywood's Key Club went nearly as planned. As expected, Axl Rose was a no-show, but former GN'R guitarist Izzy Stradlin and bassist Duff McKagan joined ex-drummer Steven Adler's new band, Adler's Appetite, for "Mr. Brownstone" and "Paradise City." The performance, which celebrated the twentieth anniversary of Appetite for Destruction, is said to be the first time the trio played onstage together since Adler's 1990 departure from the band. Slash was, in fact, present for the evening's festivities, but "something reportedly came up" that caused him to leave before the reunion jam (he was rumored to be closing the night with "Welcome to the Jungle"). No footage has hit YouTube so far, but photos of the show are already up on Adler's MySpace, and for more on the creation of Appetite for Destruction, check out the current issue of Rolling Stone.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
