When Axl Rose was busted for beating up Stephanie Seymour....and THEN his first wife spoke of him abusing her as well...Oh WAIT....sorry...I thought you meant when did I start to lose ALL respect for them! Note to AXL: Think you're SO tough beating up women....I'll take your sorry butt on anytime....LOSER!

Fall of 1988, when I was listening to the radio and heard "Welcome To The Jungle". I discovered I didn't like them at all.  >:( :P

It was around 1992, but after that became a huge fan, I was 9 year old at the time,

I started collecting memorabilia, and I reached to the point buying socks of G'n'R so I reached a certain level of being a fan,

They ruled, so long they had a short journey,

Velvet Revolver are good, but they ain't no G'n'R sorry,

Must have been in 87 or 88 - I saw the music video for Welcome to the Jungle - it rocked, then Jim Carey lip sinked it in the Dead Pool, F-ing cool 8)

Same here 1987 but I was about 8 years past the 5th grade ::) and I went to some friends' place with a tape of this new badarse group that everyone HAD to hear. Problem was 2 people beat me there with theirs. :-/

On a side note, my wife (then girlfriend) took me to see GNR on our very first date.

I first discovered GnR in the late 80's when I heard "Sweet Child O Mine" - Sheryl Crow remade it a few years ago for the soundtrack of the film Big Daddy.

My favorite song and video by them is "November Rain"

    Discovered G-N-R during my first year in the navy (in late '87 - early '88, I was 18 y/o).  A friend down the hall in the barracks, George Allison, a.k.a. "(I_am_a_loser_who_has_no_respect_for_women)ree Bisket", was blasing Appetite For Destruction one night, heard it and bought a copy shortly thereafter.  Favorite song on that album, Mr. Brownstone.  Least favorite, Sweet Child 'O Mine.  Sadly, that was the only album of theirs worth owning.

  Also discovered Joe Satriani that night - Surfing With the Alien...

I saw an article raving about them in Spin in 1987.  Always hated that band!
