This sweet vintage band tee is for the beloved hard rock group Guns N' Roses and the shirt is from the early 90s when the band was on tour to promote their albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II. During the recording of the albums, founding member and drummer Steven Adler was fired from the group due to his drug abuse. Adler had previously signed a contract vowing to stop taking drugs, but when his issues with addiction forced the band to record nearly 30 takes of the song "Civil War", he was dismissed and replaced by Matt Sorum of the Cult.
Use Your Illusion I and II were both released at the same time, resulting in Guns N' Roses occupying both the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the Billboard 200. The band became the first ever musical artists to have two albums debut at the top of the charts at the same time. Prior to the release of the albums though, was the band's 28 month long Use Your Illusion Tour, which was a huge financial success but also wrought with controversial incidents. One incident involved the arrest of lead singer Axl Rose, who got into a physical altercation with a fan who he caught filming the show. After security pulled Rose out of the crowd, he angrily stormed off and fans rioted over the abrupt end to the show.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There are several holes particularly on the side, see pics.
