Guns N’ Roses are taking us down to the pinball city where the flippers are fast and the targets are pretty… OH, WON’T YOU PLEASE PLAY PINBALL… YEAH-E-YEAH!
GNR is releasing a new pinball machine “Not in This Lifetime.” The game includes 21 Guns N’ Roses songs, five multi-ball modes, concert footage, mini figurines of leadman Axl Rose and Slash’s famous top hat.
The guitarist, who is an avid collector of pinball machines and co-designed the project with Jersey Jack Pinball, says he added a unique touch with "specific game plays and actions... as well as four unique guitar features for four playable modes in the game."
“I am honored to have been able to work with their brilliant team to design one of the most original and exciting rock 'n' roll pins ever produced,” he said in a press release.
No pinball machine is complete without a rocking trailer. Hyper flashing lights shoot across a small stage with the metallic GNR flipper standing proud. A woman approaches the machine and works the handles with “Welcome To The Jungle” blaring in the background.
All current band members pitched in with Rose, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, Dizzy Reed and MC Bob providing their voices. Duff McKagan and Melissa Reese narrate the game play.
Pinball fame is just another notch in GNR’s crazy year. Axl Rose and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin engaged in a brief but wild Twitter feud, and a wedding cake topper, from Slash's own 2001 wedding to Perla Ferrar, featuring his actual hair sold for thousands of dollars on ebay.
