Corrections / Sources Re: Reunion[edit]

It should be noted in that on April 1st, at the Troubadour for the "warmup" gig, classic lineup drummer Steven Adler was scheduled to perform with the band and could not make the gig due to a back injury that was first reported by the L.A. Weekly on April 2nd and verified by several sources, including Adler.

In addition, the L.A. Weekly was the only media outlet to review the warmup gig at the Troubadour on April 1st and their review should be included here for the historical record, which is also the first piece to report on Axl Rose's ankle injury, Adler's injured back, and Melissa Reese.

Dance Music and Glam Metal?[edit]

I am not sure if adding a "[according to whom?]" tag was the right way to deal with it, but there is a questionable statement in the intro: i.e., "Guns N' Roses has been credited[according to whom?] with reviving the mainstream popularity of rock 'n' roll, at a time when popular music was dominated by dance music and glam metal." We see sweeping statemnts like this a lot in rock band's articles, evidently because there is a common but erroneous belief that at any time exactly two genres dominate the music scene to the exclusion of all others. If you actually go back and look at what topped the charts circa 1988 or so, you don't necessarily see a lot of glam metal, and in any case Guns N' Roses themselves could be classified as glam metal.

That was taken directly — probably paraphrased a bit too closely — from the source, which was Rolling Stone if I recall correctly. Feel free to cut it if you think that's best. Prayer for the wild at heart (talk) 21:49, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
