I didn't realize Slash had a gut.

Guns and Roses fans unite – ESM is featuring “November Rain” as their current Classic Video.  Put on that bandana on and waive that lighter in the air.  The GNR boys are alive and well again, if but for one moment.

Do you need some time
On your own

Do you need some time
All alone
Everybody needs some time
On their own
Don’t you know you need some time
All alone

If you’re not a Guns and Roses fan, you might not understand why we deemed this video to be a classic.  If you’ve never heard their music, you will never understand why rockers close their eyes and fall into silence whenever this song plays on the radio.

Let me break it down for you why the November Rain will always be etched in our minds:

  • Stephanie Seymour was in it
  • Slash had a wicked guitar solo in front of a church somewhere in the desert
  • This was the first time Guns and Roses used an orchestra
  • The song November Rain is a rock classic

And last but not least: Stephanie f’ing Seymour.  Need we say more?
