Mr Brownstone is a track from the album 'Appetite for Destruction' from 1987. Legend has it that Slash & Izzy Stradlin wrote the song after lamenting their heroin habits. The line "I used to do a little, but a little wouldn't do, so the little got more and more. I just keep trying to get a little better, said a little better than before" encapsulates it all.

Mr Brownstone was GnR's first UK double A-side single, but was not released anywhere else in that form. The band was from Hollywood, Los Angeles, California originating in 1985. Led by frontman and co-founder Axl Rose (born William Bruce Rose, Jr.), the band has released six studio albums so far & an official live album while going through numerous line-up changes. As of 2010, Rose is the only consistent member of Guns N' Roses.

The debut album, 'Appetite for Destruction', has sold in excess of 28 million copies worldwide and even if you hate rock or metal music, in my opinion you should still probably have a copy. There was a long gap between early work and the much hyped 'Chinese Democracy' album.

On March 26, 2008, 'Dr Pepper' announced a plan to give everyone in America – except the band's former guitarists Slash and Buckethead – a free can of Dr Pepper if the band released Chinese Democracy before the end of 2008. Rose added, "As some of Buckethead's performances are on our album, I'll share my Dr Pepper with him."

With the announcement from Guns N' Roses regarding a release date in November, Tony Jacobs, Dr Pepper's Vice President of Marketing for Dr. Pepper, announced a free soda coupon campaign for 24 hours on Sunday, November 23, 2008. Due to "heavy volume" on the server throughout the entire day it was impossible to submit for your free coupon. I cannot say I was gutted, I would rather drink 'Venos' than Dr Pepper myself!


Castlerigg Stone Circle (alt. Keswick Carles, Carles, Carsles or Castle-rig) near Keswick in England is one of the most visually impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain and is the most visited stone circle in Cumbria, England UK.

Every year, thousands of people make the short journey from Keswick to the plateau of Castlerigg Fell and to Chestnut Hill, on which the monument stands. This plateau forms the raised centre of a natural amphitheatre created by the surrounding fells and from within the circle it is possible to see some of the highest peaks in Cumbria: Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Grasmoor and Blencathra.

The stones are of a local metamorphic slate, set in a flattened circle, measuring 32.6 m (107 ft) at its widest and 29.5 m (97 ft) at its narrowest. The heaviest stone has been estimated to weigh around 16 tons and the tallest stone measures approximately 2.3m high. There is a 3.3m wide gap in its northern edge, which may have been an entrance.

Within the circle, abutting its eastern quadrant, is a roughly rectangular setting of a further 10 stones. The circle was probably constructed around 3200 BC (Late Neolithic/Early Bronze-Age), making it one of the earliest stone circles in Britain and possibly in Europe. It is important to archaeoastronomers who have noted that the sunrise during the Autumn equinox appears over the top of Threlkeld Knott, a hill 3.5 km to the east. Some stones in the circle have been aligned with the midwinter sunrise and various lunar positions.
