Guns N’ Roses release never-before-seen 'It’s So Easy' video
The video, which is exclusively available via Apple Music was filmed at a gig in LA in 1989 and juxtaposes live footage with some steamy sex scenes.
It looks like Guns N' Roses are banking on their fans' voracious appetites (or at least wallets) with their ridiculously expensive, massive upcoming 'Appetite for Destruction' 30th anniversary reissue.
And with the collection coming soon (it's set for a June 29 release), it would be fair to assume that there are a number of additions to entice fans, including the recent big reveal of the previously unseen video for 'It's So Easy.'
As NME points out, the never before seen clip was filmed at Riki Rachtman’s notorious Los Angeles rock dive bar The Cathouse in 1989 and juxtaposes live footage with some overtly sexual scenes.
As rock legend has it, the video was originally banned by MTV and has remained in a vault unseen for almost 30 years, but it was recently rediscovered and re-edited for inclusion in the forthcoming 'Appetite for Destruction: Locked N’ Loaded' box set.
Frontman Axl Rose says in the clip: “If we made a nice video for MTV, we could put it out and sell more records and shit. But instead, we’re gonna spend 150 grand just to make something we want to see.”
The video is currently exclusive to Apple Music and subscribers can watch it here. Others can get a peek at the preview below via the band's official Twitter account:
The deluxe re-issue box set comes in at a whopping $999 and comes with 4 CDs spanning 73 tracks, 49 of which are previously unreleased, with 25 of them coming from the band’s 1986 recording sessions at Sound City Studios.
The collection also includes a photo book complete with images from Axl Rose’s personal collection, which one can safely assume will be sufficiently depraved and decadent to satisfy hardcore GNR fans!
Then there are the “custom hand-made metal-cast band skull face rings” and “metal skull face and signature-stamped guitar picks,” among other add-ons. But whether it's worth a month's rent is for you to decide!
