Okay. Remember when I said things would get back to normal this week?
Right. Well, best laid plans, etc, etc…
I’d still like to give you a little something today, but unfortunately there aren’t many songs about Thanksgiving, or turkeys, or people who wear buckles on their shoes and hats.
Instead, let’s all enjoy a little piece of rock & roll history, Guns N’ Roses’ epic music video for “November Rain,” a nonsensical fever dream that proved to be a classic example of how ambition and self-indulgence can intertwine. This is where the hair metal era jumped the shark.
Musical winds soon changed direction, leaving Guns N’ Roses stranded on a deserted island in unfamiliar waters. The band sent out an occasional message in a bottle, but never returned to the mainland.
Anyway, Happy November from Axl and Slash!
