Throwback Thursday: “It’s So Easy” by Guns N’ Roses

The first single off their debut album, “It’s So Easy” goes unnoticed in comparison to “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” when it comes to rock radio play, and it’s a damn shame. The bass intro starts the track off with a bang, and the rest of the song stays upbeat for […]
