Guns N’ Roses Debut Acoustic Version of “Move to the City”
This is actually kinda funny. Guns N’ Roses have released an acoustic version of their song “Move to the City,” which was originally recorded during the sessions for GN’R Lies (which, not coincidentally, has the electric version of “Move to the City” on it), and will be included on next week’s super-duper-extra-special deluxe reissue of Appetite for Destruction.
Wait, that’s not the funny part. The funny part is this. Ready?
“Move to the City” was written by Izzy Stradlin, who sat out the reunion over money issues, Chris Weber, who was never actually in the band, and Del James, the group’s longtime tour manager/biographer/miscellaneous whatever guy, who, again, isn’t in the band. That’s right: the current iteration of Guns N’ Roses has more claim to authorship over Chinese Democracy than they do over “Move to the City.”
Aw, eat me. I find it droll.
Appetite for Deuxstruction is out a week from today.
