Rare Axl Rose (Guns N' Roses) recordings made while he was a member of the early '80s band Rapidfire are still reportedly being mixed in Los Angeles and the CD covers are being designed in preparation for their release.
The tapes, which were purportedly recorded in May 1983, have been in storage in the original eight-track format for more than 20 years. The songs featured on the tape are as follows, according to Blabbermouth.net:
01. Ready To Rumble
02. All Night Long
03. The Prowler
04. On The Run
Rapidfire's lineup was as follows:
Axl Rose - Vocals
Kevin Lawrence - Guitar
Mike Hammernik - Bass
Chuck Gordon ? Drums
According to Lawrence, Axl's voice on the Rapidfire recording sounds a bit "more Rob Halford"-ish compared to his vocals on "Appetite for Destruction". In addition, the CD's packaging will reportedly include "plenty of pre-tattoo Axl pictures." More information is available at Rapidfire1983.com.
