I came across this amazing forgotten video the other day that I have to share. The year was 1992, and the biggest band at the time was Guns and Roses. They were on a world wide tour promoting their double album (or cd’s after all it was the 90’s) “Use Your Illusion” that was selling out venues everywhere.

Side note; my wife and I saw Guns and Roses at the old Worcester Centrum and they were great!

The concert is still talked about today.

The huge Concert for Life was both a tribute to the late Freddie Mercury who had passed away from AIDs in the fall of 1991 and a fundraiser to raise money and awareness of the dreaded disease.

Axl Rose who arguably is one of the greatest front men/lead singers was a huge fan of both Freddie Mercury and Elton John jumped at the chance to get on stage with Elton to sing one of Queen’s greatest songs Bohemian Rhapsody.
