It faced a number of revamps, with the band’s Axl Rose introducing the track last year.
“Some of you might have heard this under another name, but this is really kind of absurd to try this”, they wrote. “Wasn’t that funny? And they don’t even know the joke yet. Okay, this is called ‘Absurd”. Check out the track and more here.
Rose’s bandmate Slash recently said that he had felt “resentful” over Izzy Stradlin’s departure from the band back in 1991.
“There was no judgement about any of that. I don’t think anybody judged anybody else on how they behaved outside of being able to show up and do the gig. I was admittedly resentful of that whole trip with Izzy leaving, because whatever had gone on for him that forced that sudden change, I was like, man, I died eighteen times prior to that! It didn’t faze me!”, Slash said.
