After that, the album jumped up to the number one of the hits, and Guns N ' Roses became one of the most famous bands of the world. At the end of 1988 they recorded "GN'R Lies" with four new acoustic songs and some themes from his first EP.

Most of the lyrics of their songs talk about women, drugs and alcohol.

The band is also known for their famous problems with the alcoholism and the drugs.
Last time they were on tour in Spain was in 2010 with their album “Chinese Democracy”. They sang in Madrid, San Sebastián, Zaragoza and Badalona.

Nowadays it is said that the band is preparing a new CD that it could be the third album of  “Use your ilussion”. We’ll see….

EP: It’s a musical recording which contains more music than a single, but is too short to qualify as a full album.
