Hollywood Rose Demos


By request, my collection of Hollywood Rose Demos.


Hollywood Rose was the pre-Guns N' Roses band that featured W. Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin and Chris Weber, along with (at various times) Slash, Steven Adler, Steve Darrow, Rick Mars and drummer Johnny Kreis.

The band lasted for a short period (1983-1985) until they merged with guitarist Tracii Guns' band - L.A. Guns - to form Guns N' Roses (March 26, 1985).

I got the official Hollywood Rose release w the 4 tunes & the 4 remixed tunes. Judging by the song titles though there are several things here I've never heard before. Very cool. It's still downloading, but Thanks in advance!

Your Looks Are Gone is NOT Hollywood Rose, it's some other washed up 80's has beens - there was debate on this track years ago and it is NOT Axl or Hollywood Rose. Shadow Of Your Love, My Way Your Way, Rocker, and Reckless are more than likely from the Hollywood Rose CD (There are different versions floating about, but they're all from the same source master)

American Band, Rock n' Roll, are just live covers from the early GNR era (Not HR once again)

Out of Control sounds like a new title to me, but might be That Something, since you've got Cold Hard Cash Seem to just be missing the short version of Rocker.

Here's a great breakdown of the Hollywood Rose stuff that's legit out there;

Rose/Hollywood Rose Songs:


Unknown ['Rose 1983 Demo Tape' CD] (Summer 2002):

My Way Your Way 4:51 - early 'Anything Goes'
Shadow Of Your Love 2:52 - not to be confused with B-Side or the two 'Live From The Jungle' versions
Wreckless 4:41 - early 'Reckless Life'
That Something (w/o Axl) 4:46 - aka 'Taxi Driver'

Johnny Kries Demo Tape Rip CD-R (Late Summer 2002):

My Way Your Way same as above
Shadow Of Your Love same as above
Wreckless same as above

Rick Mars 8-Track Versions CD (July 2003):

My Way Your Way same as above
Shadow Of Your Love same as above
Wreckless same as above
Rocker 3:33
