People are always looking for the Ultimate Gift Idea for a friend or family member. What else would make a better gift than something signed by a Sport or Movie star or their favourite Musician or Band. Imagine seeing the look on their face when they unwrap their gift and are blown away by what they now have just received. Guns n Roses Signed Memorabilia Is The Ultimate Gift Idea, Hey!

Guns n Roses Signed Memorabilia Makes The Ultimate Gift Idea to any die hard fan. It means something, it’s special, it comes with a certificate of authenticity and most importantly it will increase in value. Most gifts whether for Birthday, Christmas or just because you love and respect the person don’t increase in value as time goes on but Signed Memorabilia does. Take for instance the sad and untimely death of basketballer Kobe Bryant the demand for his memorabilia skyrocketed as well as the prices the day after his death.

Same as when Michael Jackson Passed away his signed memorabilia increased by thirty percent minutes after details of his death were announced.  Imagine what will happen to Signed Memorabilia bySlash or Axl or the other members of the Guns n Roses when their time comes. Guns n Roses signed memorabilia is the ultimate gift that will increase in value.

My Father is a huge Beach Boys fan and I recently bought him a framed picture signed by Mike Love and Brian Wilson, he was so happy when he opened it he immediately put it up on his wall in the living room and I get to see it every time I visit and remember the joy it gave him.

Your Love One or friend will be so surprised and happy with this amazing gift and will show it off in their home for many years to come. I also know the remaining members of The Beach Boys days are sadly numbered and I will definitely be telling my father to get the items valued.

Alternatively there is also some cheaper and more affordable Guns n Roses Memorabilia that can be found on eBay and Amazon. Although most of this type of Memorabilia is more novelty type items that won’t increase in value they still look good and make the perfect gift for any occasion. Things ranging from rare photos, books and even glassware. My favourite though is the picture frame that comes with photos and a plaque containing the history of your favourite band, actor or sport star.

Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine

Guns n Roses

The biggest band in the world in the late 80’s and early 90’s was by far Guns n Roses. Appetite for Destruction was a massive debut album but Use your Illusion 1 & 2 put them into stadiums. Slash Guitarist, Axl Rose singer, Izzy Stradlin Rhythm Guitarist, Duff McKagan on Bass and Drummer Steve Adler.

Guns N Roses created some of the best music to come out of the 80’s and 90’s. It didn’t take the band long to score gigs at Los Angeles based night clubs including The Whiskey and The Troubadour they also enjoyed their first Guns n Roses tour up to Seattle and they had to hitchhike most of the way because their Transport broke down.

The band also bonded when they all lived in an old storage container near the bus terminal in L.A. Before one of the shows in 1985, Slash shoplifted a black top hat and a silver Native American concho belt from two stores in L.A. He combined the hat with parts of the belt to create what would become his Trademark for the rest of his Career.

It was also in the storage container where most of their new songs were created. After being scouted by several major record labels, the band signed with Geffen Records in March 1986, but not before milking as many free Drinks and Meals the band could.

Once the band became famous the mayhem really kicked in. Riding high on their new album ‘Appetite for Destruction’ the band went back into the studio to record GnR Lies.

GnR Lies included 4 live tracks and 4 acoustic tracks. Patience was the only single of the album and peaked at number 4 in the US while the album reached number 2.

It was during this time that drugs were starting to become a problem within the band and Axl stated this one night opening for the Rolling Stones threatening that this would be their last concert if some members don’t stop dancing with Mr Brownstone.

Guns N Roses returned to the studio in 1990 minus Steve Adler who was briefly fired because of his drug addiction. He eventually came back after signing a contract stating that he would no longer take drugs.

Adler was fired while the band were trying to record Civil War and Adler struggled to play his drums because of his addiction. He would file a lawsuit against the band.

Steve was replaced by Matt Sorum who had played with the Cult. Around this time Dizzy Reid became the bands keyboardist and sixth member. Guns n Roses released two albums in September 1991, Use your Illusion 1 and 2. The Ballad November Rain became the most requested video on MTV and the song reached number 3 on the US charts.

The Band embarked on a 194 dates in 27 countries tour named the Use your Illusion tour and would be famous for the bizarre incidences that would happen during the 2 and half years on the road. During one show in Missouri Axl Rose started a riot after attacking a fan for recording the concert. Axl walked off stage and a riot pursued. Izzy Stradlin would leave the band during this tour and was replaced by Gilby Clarke

Axl Rose was beginning to threaten not to go on stage if the other band members wouldn’t meet some of his requests and he was also getting a reputation for coming on stage extremely late making concert goers wait 2 or 3 hours. The Use Your Illusion tour ended in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on July 17, 1993.  The show in Buenos Aires marked the last time that Sorum and Clarke played in the band, and the last time Slash performed with the band until 2016.

Memorabilia Comes in all Shapes and Sizes

Memorabilia is all about the Nostalgia and theres so much different types of Memorabilia that you can find. When it comes to Guns n Roses theres no shortage of choice. On eBay alone you can find everything from vintage concert posters to Tour Jackets and T shirts and even limited edition professionally taken photos.

On Amazon you can find Custom Framed Gold Plated LPs, Wall Clocks and of course Promo Posters, Concert Memorabilia and much much more. All these items are great and will make the perfect gift. They look good displayed in the home or on the wall and will put a smile on anyones face, but they will very rarely increase in value and they don’t have that personal touch that Signed Memorabilia has.

Unfortunately Signed Memorabilia can be pricey and is more suited as an investment than a gift. In saying that though if you can get a group to chip in, signed memorabilia would make the ultimate gift that someone could cherish for many years to come. Keeping in mind though you need to do your research before hand and buy from a reputable dealer. For this I recommend

    • Hi and thanks for the positive comment. I’m so glad you enjoyed the article and I appreciate you sharing it on your social media.

  3. This post really takes me back! GnR brings back a lot of memories of my teen years. I agree, that getting signed memorabilia from your favourite band would be an incredible gift. It is so nice when people put thought into getting someone a gift, instead of just buying something for the sake of getting a gift. I’m sure there are a lot of die-hard fans out there that would love some GnR memorabilia! Great post!

    • Hi Carla thanks for the comment. GnR are such a great band and any memorabilia to do with the band will make a great gift. Thanks for the positive feedback.

  4. I agree that if you own something signed from your favourite artist, athlete, or a public person you will find it priceless. It is definitely a good way how to gift someone we love. I think it can be indeed a perfect surprise at some significant anniversaries like the birthday celebration of decades, or wedding anniversary, etc. I like also that you took time and described the history of the Guns and Roses as many people including me, have no bright idea about all the information written here. When I am going to need to surprise someone I know where to turn -;). Thank you.
