A 30-year-old recording of Axl Rose has surfaced on YouTube. The studio recording is from Rapidfire. Axl recorded a four song demo with the band in 1983.
Rapidfire guitarist Kevin Lawrence posted a sample of the band's song Ready to Rumble. This session was the first time Axl was recorded in a studio.
After the end of Rapidfire, Rose went on to join another band, L.A. Guns. He eventually started in his own band, Hollywood Rose, before combining the two groups to form Guns N' Roses.
