Quote from Davan :
its always a good idea to introduce the music of junkies to children through whatever methods possible. Maybe we can get one of those kids' youtube channels to do Mr Brownstone
This is in the new book, "Best GNR Children's Jokes" now available on Amazon:

"Knock, Knock"
"Who's there?"
"Mr. Brownstone"
"Mr. Brownstone who"
"Knock, Knock"
"Who's there?"
"Mr. Brownstone"
"Mr. Brownstone who"
"Knock, Knock"
"Who's there?"
"Mr. Brownstone"
"LEAVE ME ALONE!!"
"Won't leave you alone!...Won't leave you alone!..Noooo Nooo Nooo Won't Leave you alone!"

Quote from Davan :
laugh out loudlaugh out loud children are definitely mature enough to read into all art the most appropriate meanings and lessons LMAOLMAO I'm not even sure 40 year olds are.
Really? Inserting a bunch of LMAO emoticons as a way of arguing back? Is that a mature thing to do?

Anyway, that wasn't my point. My point was that a lot of good art is done by people who have used drugs. And it would be a shame if children could not enjoy such art just because the artists used drugs. Sweet Child O' Mine is a great song, and GNR made a lot of great songs. Why can't children enjoy those songs or, in this case, a nice story? You don't have to understand deep meanings to enjoy the melodies of a song, you know.

Quote :
As for the prevalence of drug abuse, theres a difference between a group that celebrates and elevates abuse of drugs (out of context and rarely seen interviews notwithstanding), and those that attempt to divorce the art from the addiction (for the most part). Even a Van Gogh may have been heavily under the influence, but it isn't generally a glorified theme of his work. I never understood why Eric Clapton's "Cocaine" was played on the radio so heavily, I mean, its not even a good song!
Then go criticize Clapton when he makes a children's book about cocaine. What does this have to do with GNR? The song this book is based on has nothing to do with drugs.As I said, GNR's message on drugs, if anything, is that addiction is bad. Before you criticize something, at least understand it first. Don't attack a song you don't understand (like Mr Brownstone), when the song (ironically) agrees with your anti-drug view.

Quote :
Either way, I think we can all agree that there are a disturbing number of people (both with and without success) that said they tried/abused drugs because it seemed like everyone successful (at least in the music world) were also drug abusers. I've never quite understood the attitude of not protecting children as much as possible. They will lose their innocence at some point, and never get it back. Why rush it?
No, I don't agree at all. I don't think the vast majority of drug abusers do so because they think successful musicians are drug users. Maybe a few think that way, but the far majority of people who take drugs do so for other reasons, such as: I want to feel good, I want to be rebellious, my peer group was into it, etc. It's the same reasons why people drink alcohol and smoke tobacco. They are all drugs. What do you want to do, also berate people who buy children's books written by alcoholics and smokers?

I think many adults freak out too easily about "protecting the children" as if children were fragile crystal. They are not. They are not going to break because they hear some cuss words or see some boobs on TV, and they are not going to become heroin addicts because they think "Sweet Child O' Mine" sounds good.

And if we're gonna be protecting children, then prioritize. Teach them good values, encourage them to learn in school, introduce them to healthy foods, promote exercise, don't glorify violence, etc. There are dozens and dozens of things we can do to protect children that are way ahead of "corruption" by rock n' roll. To blame drug abuse on rockers is just way off the target.

This is a hilarious bastardization of the original song. Tempted to get it.
Growing up, Guns & Roses was such a white trash band. They made some great music in spite of that, once again proving that anyone from anywhere in the world can make great music.

Quote from TerpBE :
Does this book arrive much later than it's supposed to without any explanation and then abruptly stop after three pages?
No. It starts out cool with a nice story and then drags on into nothing with the author literally withing "what do I write now?" For thirty pages, before finally ending.

I have serious doubts about God and all that, but you can perfectly predict what these people will stand for and what they will attack by asking the question: "what would Satan do?" People like guns and roses are never anything more than they've always show d themselves to be.

I enjoy their songs, but let's not pretend they don't have a message that any sane parent would protect their children from. Bring on the downvotes.

Sweet child of mine is one of the cleanest, but he ain't talking about his kid.
