should this be moved to Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide or somesuch? — FREAK OF NURxTURE (TALK) 08:23, September 11, 2005 (UTC)

Rechless Life was written by neither duff nor slash, as it was played by Hollywood Rose, a band without Slash or Duff, but involving Izzy and Axl.

Independent Record?[edit]

Was this EP truly released independently? claims otherwise. Where can this cd be purchased?

According the various biographies of the band that i've read it was released independently in very limited numbers before the band were signed to Geffen. It certainly wasn't released on CD because CDs weren't readily available in 1986 when it was made. I own a copy of the vinyl (the only format it was released on that i'm aware of) and there's no mention of Geffen or any other major record label on it. Also I just checked the allmusic site and they have it listed as being released on Uzi Suicide, GNR's own label. MagicBez 21:46, 26 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Guns N' Roses never had the money to release an EP on their own. They were living in a garage sleeping on the floor and stealing money from the prostitues. So how could they possibly get the money to set up their own label, produce and release a record? This EP was released AFTER they signed to Geffen. They were working on Appetite and Geffen decided to release an EP in the mean time. Uzi Suicide was set up by Geffen. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:04, 20 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CDs were widely available in 1986, but they were expensive, only a few plants pressed them, and the average fan didn't own a CD player. We actually don't have a source for the claim that the record was released only on vinyl and cassette, although this claim is plausible and I left it in while cleaning up the article. The LP format was deliberately killed off by the record companies around 1989 or so (although it is making a comeback today.) Timothy Horrigan (talk) 19:55, 11 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bootleg Mention[edit]

In one version of the article it mentions that in bootlegs you can hear Axl say "This is about your f'ing mother" before "Mama Kin." On the official EP lies, this "shout out" is on the album. Since the quote appears even on non-bootleg versions of the album, I removed the reference to that quote being on "bootleg" copies. Also, I don't think that mentioning the quote actually "proves" it isn't a live album, so I just removed the entire reference. The quote from Axl is probably enough.

Fair use rationale for Image:F41185oatx1.jpg[edit]

Image:F41185oatx1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:22, 4 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It would probably be good to explain the "?!*@" in the title of the EP, since there is no mention of what it means. Is it an expletive, or just random characters?Tkdman90210 23:16, 14 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's random characters. When the band refer to it it's always "Live like a suicide." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:11, 25 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Faux Live[edit]

Please what the article means by 'faux live'. It's not much of an article if it's just creating more questions and confusion, lol

The songs aren't live, they're studio tracks with crowd noise overdubbed on them. Bucketheader 14:42, 23 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Live or Live?[edit]

Is it Live (rhymes with "give") ?!*@ Like a Suicide or Live (rhymes with "hive") ?!*@ Like a Suicide  ? Kransky (talk) 13:00, 4 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's Live (rhymes with "hive") as the band have said in the past (Axl has said the title onstage quite a few times.)
