In an interview with our homeboy John Sellars for Spin, Duff McKagan reveals what he and his bandmates in Guns N’ Roses were listening to while they recorded their seminal album, Appetite for Destruction:
The Joshua Tree was the soundtrack of my life when we were making Appetite. […] I listened to The Joshua Tree probably ten times a day. That was the record, man. Still is, like, a top ten record — top five, maybe. […] Axl’s favorite record in 1987 was Faith, by George Michael. Izzy was into reggae. Actually, when we were recording Appetite, Izzy would play over and over and over the Georgia Satellites. It was like, “Dude, enough.”
