As I’m writing this intro, I’m listening to ‘Shadow of Your Love’ which is one of the bonus tracks off the soon-to-be released deluxe re-release of Guns n Roses’ landmark debut ‘Appetite for Destruction’. To break down the highly-anticipated (and brilliantly hyped) announcement today, I talked to one of the most knowledgeable able GN’R fans I’ve ever encountered, music writer Matt Wake. If you consider yourself a true die-hard, make sure to follow him on twitter @matthewbwake.
