Nike SB November Rain Dunk Mid
November Rain by Guns N’ Roses is the band’s last Top 10 hit. The original version was 25 minutes long, and the song was edited down to 8:57 making it the longest Top 10 in history. On top of that Slash has the longest guitar solo ever in a Top 10 single. One more little interesting fact Shannon Hoon from the group Blind Melon sang backup. Hoon, who died of a drug overdose in 1995, was Axl Rose’s cousin.
This past November Nike released their version of November Rain. The Dunk Mid includes a black/gray/red upper and extensive detailing on the tongue, a rarity amongst most sneakers. The insole has a graphic of a girl in a coffin (ala the video for the song.)
I can’t believe I’m going to write this on my own music blog but in other Guns & Roses related news it seems that Chinese Democracy is done for the 67th time. Classic Rock Magazine is reporting that Axl Rose’s Personal Assistant Beta Lebeis has confirmed that the long awaited Guns N’ Roses album ‘Chinese Democracy’ was completed before Christmas.
