Guns N’ Roses say hi to LA City Tours, Sign drumsticks!

While on one of our sightseeing tours, we bumped into the new drummer for Guns N’ Roses – Matt Sorum!  He seemed like a really cool dude, because there was a big Guns N’ Roses fan on the bus, and when he heard this, he popped open his trunk, pulled out a pair of drumsticks and signed them for our sightsee-er!!!

One lucky dude on our tour got these drumsticks signed by Guns N' Roses drummer!

If you’re a Guns N’ Roses fan, you’d know that Axl Rose is the only original remaining member still in the band.  The old drummer, Steve Adler, now has his own gig and it goes by “Adler”.

There’s no doubt that there’s some bad blood between many of the original members of the band (but then again, hey, what big band has lasted through years of mega stardom? Beatles? Beach Boys? Backstreet Boys?  I’m on a “B” thing here…)

Guns N’ Roses were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this month, and there was even difficulty getting everyone to be there for that.  It ended up being everyone from the original lineup…except Axl Rose.  Bummer.

Wikipedia cites and interview Dizzy Reed about it:

“I know that all the original band will be there. I do not know exactly what will happen, but I’m sure will be very nice “[…]” Honestly, have not talked about it. I do not know when, how or why, but I’m sure the day will come when we must, all of us who talk about it. [79]

Well they’ll always be the Guns N’ Roses of my memory – churning out “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Sweet Child o Mine” – songs I know resonate in our collective past if you grew up sometime in the 80s/90s!

Want to go on a sightseeing tour of Los Angeles and Hollywood, and maybe just maybe get a pair of autographed drumsticks from the like of Guns N’ Roses???!  Well then you know where to go- just come by LA City Tours and sign up for any of our tours (we also do LAX layovers, Los Angeles vacation packages, and trips to Santa Monica beaches).  We’re right here on Hollywood boulevard!
