Boy 1 (young):
This music is cool.
Boy 2 (even younger):
Currently enjoying the left-channel of Appetite For Destruction, Edition.
A dream of mine is to be able to hear the raw multitracks of all of Appetite. There is so much incredible guitar on that album - from Slash and from Izzy.
I often listen to the album straight through on only the left channel, and then listen again to only the right channel. Then sometimes I’ll do L/R one song at a time. 95% of the guitars are hard-panned L/R and so it really helps to clarify what Slash and Izzy were playing.
It’s a really refreshing (and rewarding) way in which to listen to your favorite albums.
As Slash prepares for the arrival of his star-studded solo album, due in April, in a new interview with GQ magazine the guitarist revealed he has turned down tens of millions of dollars to reunite with Guns N’ Roses. "I can’t remember exact numbers, but [the offers have been] excessive," he said. "Seven, eight-digit kinds of things."

My bold prediction: Slash’s forthcoming solo album will eventually outsell Chinese Democracy.
I’d never make that bet, but I think it’s certainly possible over the course of a few years.
