In 1987, when I was in the fifth grade, I heard a song called “Welcome to the Jungle” that instigated a major paradigm shift in my musical tastes. I will never get tired of Appetite For Destruction,” or it’s less-praised follow up albums, which I think are brilliant. I checked Iron Maiden off my bucket list two years ago, and now, finally, after all these years, my wife and I are going to see Guns N’ Fucking Roses for our anniversary.
We are going to see Axl, Slash and Duff onstage together. We can’t afford vacations, and life is a day-to-day struggle with health issues, mental health issues, and mounting debt. We deserve this. I can’t wait.
