Part five of a five part series I am doing this week that captures Amazing Screams.
***

When Axl would scream, he looked like a baby bird wanting to eat. His whole body would convulse, he’d stomp his feet, squeeze the mic with both hands and get so totally into it, you thought he might spontaneously combust. His voice was so powerful it was like a new instrument that could carry its own melody and create its own little hook. This shot is from a four-night run they did at Perkins Palace just as Appetite For Destruction was beginning to take off. Right after this GNR went on a big arena tours, opening for Aerosmith and The Cult. This was the last time we got to see them in a theater,they soon became huge and were headlining the big stadiums themselves.

Photographed with trusty, smuggled in Canon AE-1 Program, a cheap, no name 70mm-210mm f5.6 lens. Shot on Fujichrome film.
