According to the Las Vegas Sun, a Clark County commissioner has expressed "remorse" over the county's decision to temporarily rename Paradise Road to Paradise City Road in honor of GUNS N' ROSES' first-ever residency, Appetite For Democracy, in Las Vegas because of the offensive nature of the ad being used to promote the concerts.
The ad is described by the Sun as " a cartoon-like drawing [that] depicts a robotic monster lurking over a skeletal robot, with a disheveled woman sprawled on a sidewalk, her underwear pulled down below her knees and her blouse opened, exposing a breast."
Commissioner Mary Beth Scow, who represented the county at the ceremony commemorating the temporary name change, said she was unaware of the ad, which is being used in mainstream advertising, including newspaper promotions and taxicab placards. "I hadn't seen the advertising before the media event. It's clearly inappropriate. Maybe it's the risk of doing business with a rock band, but I guess we'll have some remorse over this decision. It's a lesson learned."
I learned the same lesson about the same picture when I got Appetite as a kid...my parents got one look at that and took the cover away from me.
And what do you think happened when they heard the cuss words in the songs? Yup, they took that away too.
