Guns N' Roses was one of the most popular bands in the country for awhile if not the most popular band. Guns N' Roses had a unique ability to garner attention from older people who normally would not listen to there music.
Many older people heard the song "Sweet Child O'Mine" and rapidly went out to buy the Guns N' Roses album "Appetite for Destruction". The older people were generally shocked and did not like the rest of the music album. However, many of the older people came to like the other songs adored by the younger generation such as "Welcome TO The Jungle", and "Paradise City".
Axl Rose has been with the band from the beginning but the rest of his band mates have changed. In fact the various band members of Guns N' Roses has changed multiple times. The problem is that fans form a bond with the musicians and when the musicians are no longer with the band a they do not feel as attached or loyal to the band. Album sale will suffer as will concert ticket sales. Amazingly Guns N' Roses has continued to do well regardless of how many times they change band members. If Guns N' Roses could do a reunion style concert playing there old hits with some of the original band members from when the album "Appetite for Destruction" came out they would have huge sales. Massive amounts of tickets would be snapped up by the Guns N' Roses fans who loved the early chemistry the initial band mates had together.
