Guns N' Roses Play Unplugged For Bridge School Benefit
Anyone who has heard the second side of the Guns N' Roses' "Lies" EP from 1988 will know that GNR are no stranger to putting down the Les Pauls and picking up the acoustic guitars every once in a while. So it was unsurprising that the band were announced to be performing at Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit a few months back, a show where acoustic instruments are the order of the day. GNR played seven songs, including three from the GNR "Lies" EP, one from "Chinese Democracy" and three from seminal album "Appetite For Destruction". The full set list is as follows: 01. You're Crazy 02. Used To Love Her 03. Welcome To The Jungle 04. Better 05. Patience 06. Sweet Child O' Mine 07. Paradise City The Bridge School Benefit is a show put together by Neil Young and his wife Pegi, and raises money for the Bridge School, which was founded by the couple to aid children with severe physical disabilities. The television broadcast of the show was available as pay-per-view event and other performers included The Flaming Lips, Jack White and Eddie Vedder, as well as Young himself. New Guns N' Roses aren't the only GNR associated act to have performed an unplugged version of "Sweet Child O' Mine" in recent years. Back in 2010, Slash, accompanied by Myles Kennedy, performed an acoustic rendition of the band's signature tune on Australian TV. In fact, we've posted both the Slash and the new Guns N' Roses versions for your listening pleasure below. Let us know which version you thought kicked ass more in the comments. And if there's any other great versions of the song that we've missed, then let us know! Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine (Unplugged):
