Hollywood Roses
“The Ultimate tribute to Guns N Roses. These guys are kind of what Atomic Punks are to Van Halen.
The singer Colby Veil sounds more like Axl Rose than Axl Rose! They also played our 3rd Metal Sludge Extravaganza.” - Metal Sludge. - Metal Sludge


“It was hard to believe that the voice this kid (of Hollywood Roses Frontman, Colby Veil) has. It was a nice trip back before I left Gn’R. “The 20th Anniversary Show” was GREAT and he’s a nice guy”

Izzy Stradlin - Guns n’ Roses

“If you love Old School Guns and Roses, the Hollywood Roses are your ticket for a journey back in time. I think Colby might be Axl’s twin brother from the 80’s.”

Ralph Saenz, Steel Panther

“Hollywood Roses lead singer Colby Veil could be the future of bluesy rock”

Tracii Guns, L.A. Guns

“Colby Veil’s talent as a vocalist is only matched by his enthusiasm as a performer.This guy just doesn’t go through the motions he “brings it” every time he takes the stage!”

Vinnie Dombrowski, Sponge

Hollywood Roses is the best Guns and Roses tribute band period. They are the ultimate Guns N’ Roses experience. The group started 20 years ago in L.A. when a group of talented musicians decided that with nothing but desire and hard work they would be able to capture the raw energy of a by gone era in Rock N’ Roll, the power and frenzy of a Guns and Roses show.The band features vocalist Colby Veil performing as Axl Rose. Colby’s extraordinary vocal ability and similarity to Axl in appearance led him to be hand picked by original Guns and Roses drummer Steven Adler to lead his band Adler’s Appetite for the 20th Anniversary of Appetite for Destruction tour. The band also includes Robo Hyrn on guitar as “Slash”, Leo Cuevas on bass as “Duff”, Lez on guitar as “Izzy” and Yutaka on drums

Hollywood Roses have toured extensively in the US playing dozens of high profile venues and have made fans everywhere they have played. Most of the original Guns and Roses members are fans of the band as well.

"Hollywood Roses" pay tribute to all the qualities of that mentality! Since Guns N’ Roses are no longer around….The band wants to bring the original Guns N’ Roses concept and stage show back to where it all started.....Tinsel town -Hollywood, Ca. **Watch out for the “Ultimate Guns N’ Roses Experience” coming soon to a stage near you!!!
