Welcome to the BMX Jungle

Guns N’ Roses are out on tour this summer and putting on some great shows.

(I saw the Toronto stop and the guys kicked ass!)

It’s great that the band was able to finally put their differences aside and get out there in front of their fans.

Now if you’re anything like me, one of the first stops when you enter a concert venue is to check out the tour shirts at the merch table.

In Toronto, they had some OK stuff…but in other cities…well, I think they got some waaay cooler stuff.

Specifically, Los Angeles.

Peep this tour shirt.

And the back is not too shabby either.

GNRshirt2The graphic has a bit of a 4130 Subway Series feel to it…which seems fitting given the locale.

All and all, pretty cool.

Slash’s love of BMX is well documented so its only fitting that they have incorporated it into their tour shirts in the birthplace of BMX.

Now, my only question…was the bike Slash riding in this video the inspiration for the shirt?

 





Slash has an appetite for…SE Racing?

You never know what you’ll come across when surfing the interweb.

Like this picture here of Slash with a woodgrain OM Flyer (from SE Racing) on the US VERSUS THEM streetwear site. Are they hinting that a Slash-inspired 24″ is on the way?

It wouldn’t be the first time a cruiser inspired by an ’80s metal icon was on the market…remember the S&M Widowmaker? Yep, S&M and Dee Snider….now that was a match made in heaven.  Speaking of which…when is Chris Moeller going to bring that back? I think the time is right.
