Guns N’ Roses Unveil ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ DVD Clip; Axl Rose Condemns Police Shooting of Dog
After debuting in theaters earlier this month, Guns N’ Roses‘ concert film ‘Appetite for Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino – Las Vegas’ gets a Blu-ray and DVD release tomorrow (July 1). Billboard is premiering ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ from the release, which you can watch above.
The 26-song show, filmed during the band’s 2012 Las Vegas residency, includes songs from ‘Appetite for Destruction’ all the way through ‘Chinese Democracy’ along with some covers and tracks from band members Tommy Stinson and Bumblefoot.
In other GN’R news, frontman Axl Rose has expressed his displeasure with a recent event in Utah where the search for a missing child led to the death of an innocent man’s dog. The search led police to the Salt Lake City home of Sean Kendall. They claim his 2-year-old Weimaraner named Geist was aggressive, and they shot the dog.
Kendall has contacted local media, claiming Geist was never known to be aggressive. “I understand the concern for a missing child. But that doesn’t negate my rights as a property owner. And it doesn’t replace my dog,” he says. “It doesn’t justify what that officer chose to do, and that was use lethal force on my animal. Kendall, who has posted video of his confrontation with police, is demanding that the officer responsible for Geist’s death be fired.
After hearing about it, Rose voiced his reaction via Twitter:
Jesus Geist! Utah cops can enter ur fenced in yard w/0 evidence of anything against u n shoot ur “aggressive” dog rather than exit the area?

The missing child was found safe less than an hour after Geist was killed. The child was asleep in his home.
