No Appetite for Criticism

So you’d like to read a juicy, behind-the-scenes, kick-ass interview with Guns N’ Roses, huh? Well we’d be pleased as punch to print one for you, but when we started looking into it we encountered way too much red tape for our liking. The Gunners have instigated a policy to have journalists sign a contract (actual copy below) giving the band final okay on every single word of every single article. But even though we won’t compromise, in case you’d like a crack at your very own personal interview with the Boys, here’s your chance. No guarantees, of course, but they insist all interview requests start with this. So, fill in the blanks, sign on the dotted line, mail the contract to the address below, and sell your soul for rock ’n’ roll.

GUNS N' ROSES

c/o Stravinsky Brothers Productions, Inc.
1830 S. Robertson, Suite 201
Los Angeles, CA 90035

Dated: ______________________________, 1990
