| Official Facebook Page Launched For Guns N’ Roses Drummer’s Early Band, The Beautiful

Before joining Guns N’ Roses in 2006, Frank Ferrer was the drummer of an alt-metal band during the late ’80s/early ’90s, called the Beautiful, of which an official Facebook page was recently launched. The page includes rare photos, info, and songs to hear – check it out by clicking here. The Beautiful only issued one EP a self-titled release in 1990 and one full-length Storybook in 1992 for the Warner Bros. subsidiary Giant Records, and according to the band’s Wikipedia entry, was once described as “A mix of Jane’s Addiction at their most wistful and the broody flowery sway of Saigon Kick. Ultra-cool without having to try, it manages to glint but always remain exquisite from a far and is happy to lace its edges with darkness.”One of the more overlooked alt-rock recordings of the genre’s golden early ’90s period, the Storybook album spawned a song for which a video would be filmed, “John Doe” which aired once or twice on MTV’s Headbangers Ball, and included other standout tracks the acoustic “The We in Me,” the epic title track, etc. that fit in perfectly with such popular acts of the era like Jane’s Addiction, Smashing Pumpkins, and Stone Temple Pilots. Unfortunately, this would prove to be the final release from the band.Ferrer supplied drums on four songs from G n’ R’s Chinese Democracy album – “Better,” “If the World,” “There Was a Time,” and “I.R.S.”
