    NEW YORK, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming up on VH1...

                              VH1 Has "Patience"

     Premiering Monday July 5 10:00 PM "Guns N' Roses: Behind the Music"

    Guns N' Roses emerged from the thicket of the hair metal jungle on
Hollywood's Sunset Strip in the mid-80s.  The band single-handedly reinvented
rock and roll with righteous riffs and a real and present element of danger.
Songs like Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City were not merely rebellious
anthems, they were autobiographical snapshots of a band that lived and worked
on the edge. The band's exploits became as notorious as its music as members
dabbled with drugs, booze and other forms of debauchery.  Guns' 1987 debut,
Appetite for Destruction, struck a raw nerve -- enrapturing teens and enraging
parents.

Thanks to arena-ready tunes like Jungle and Sweet Child O' Mine, the
album would become one of the most successful debuts ever, selling more than
14 million copies worldwide.

    Led by vocalist Axl Rose, Guns were a magnet for controversy -- be it
album covers, song lyrics, or bad behavior. And even as the band was quickly
rising up the pop music food chain, internal struggles always threatened to
tear the band apart. Original drummer Steven Adler was fired for his losing
battle with heroin in 1990. Founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin would leave soon
thereafter. In spite of the turmoil, after the 1991 release of Use Your
Illusion I and II Guns N' Roses were the biggest, baddest band in the world,
with expensive videos and elaborate stage show to match. Guns stayed on the
road to support Illusion for two and a half years, tours that were marred by
tragedy -- riots in St. Louis and Montreal -- Axl showing up hours late or not
at all. Founding members Slash and Duff McKagen dealt with Axl's unpredictable
behavior by drinking the frustration away.

 Soon after they got off the road in
1993, Guns N' Roses disappeared into the world of rock myth. Band members came
and went, with the only constant being the mercurial Axl Rose. A decade later,
the world still awaits the follow-up to Illusion.
   
"Guns N' Roses: Behind the Music" tells the true story of this band of
rock and roll outlaws.
