- Larry Nager, The Commercial Appeal, 1.9.92

Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses earned their positions as rock's foremost bad boys by ignoring virtually every music business rule. But their show Tuesday night at The Pyramid could have profited from one old saw: Always leave them wanting more.

After two hours and 40 minutes of the band's hard rock, even the most die- hard GNR fans were ready to go home, although the concert did provide the record crowd of 18,678 with an old-fashioned rock and roll spectacle.

The 134-speaker system proved, unlike the Van Halen concert in December, that The Pyramid's echo problems can be overcome. Although the vocals still were lost in the upper reaches of the arena, in most seats the sound was surprisingly crisp and clear.

Opening act Soundgarden took the stage shortly after 9, paying tribute to Memphis as "the home of rock and roll" and providing a 50-minute set that ran a heavy gamut from punk-edged speed metal to painfully slow sludge metal. Heavy metal openers have the toughest job in rock, but Soundgarden held its own, and won over the crowd with variety and humor.

The band returns Feb. 7 to open for Skid Row at The Auditorium North Hall.

When GNR finally took the stage at 11:08 p.m., the crowd was more than ready.

By show's end, almost every song on the band's four albums was played and every member showcased.

And Axl was Axl, berating the front rows when they dared to sit, having an audience member who annoyed him thrown out and complaining about what the media writes about him.

To his credit, he demanded as much from himself as he did of the crowd. Though he complained of twisted ankles and a sore throat, he never let up, his razor-blades-on-a-blackboard shriek going full tilt.

But while Guns N' Roses tries to be this generation's Rolling Stones, the real strength of the band isn't Rose's Jagger, it's Slash's Keith Richards.

The guitarist held the band together while managing to avoid a single modern metal cliche. His bluesy solos were concise and to the point and he avoided self-indulgence even during his extended solo spot.

Not surprisingly, the evening's most indulgent moments belonged to Rose, who sat down at a grand piano to gliss his way through November Rain. It was the worst song of the night, completely unsuited to Rose's voice and amateurish approach to the piano.

Still, at least that sort of pretentious self-indulgence was in keeping with the band's image as wild and spontaneous.

But two black boxes at the front of the stage raised a disturbing question: What sort of spontaneous band has to have lyrics rolling by on a couple of teleprompters?

Maybe Axl needs to spend less time worrying about what people write about him and more time memorizing his own lyrics.
