Why Guns n Roses still packs arenas

Well when Slash and Duff rejoined people flocked to see them, probably because of nostalgia.

The reason they keep selling our arenas is because they put on a great show. 3 hours, start of time, and they bring it. Simple as that. Saw them back in the early 90s, saw them again in 2017, one of the best shows I’d seen in the past 5 years...easily

I feel like I’m listening to a couple friends talk about music!

I for a long time didn’t try to find new music, because I didn’t think there was any good music out there. Sonny and Steven have introduced me to so much new music that I have to keep a list the artists to remember who to go back and listen to, as I have a hard time remembering names. I have several podcasts I listen to and this is one I look forward to every week. I really like the show notes, so if you are listening while driving, you can go back to see all the artists they talked about. If you give it a try, I think you will be happy!
