    touch too much was actually ok I thought, but you shook me all night long sounded pretty bad. Someone nail him back to the chair please
  2. Chris Slade: Rock Or Bust Is Not The End Of AC/CD

    Phil Rudd will definetely not come back, I do think that Youngs have made that very clear. Even Angus looks (close up) that he is ready for retirement, his words (during interviews) and his actions (during the shows) do not implicate that he does want to stop. And personally I think that is a good thing. AC/DC `s great songs are from a jurassic period, but their shows are not just any rock show, they bring together all generations and they are simply mega good times party events. The die hard fans will always complain, but as long as Axl does a good job ( in my opionion much better than Brian did in the past couple of years) they can tour until Angus rides to Rock n Roll Valhalla.
  3. Why did Brian Johnson stop being included in the songwriting?

    Brian himselfmentioned several times that he (song)writing did not come easy for him and therefore he left it to the Young brothers
  4. 05/13/16 - Marseille, France - Stade Velodrome

    so excited about seeing them....Axl seems to get even better in every show. Judging from the videos this is actually the best AC/DC has sounded in years.
  5. Interviews + Media reactions to AXL/DC, good and bad

    I don`t remember having read such great reviews about Axl in the past 10 years. Inthe German speaking mainstreammedia this on page 1 on all their internet publications and the reviews are really really good. Of course they make some shots about his weight and him sitting down, but every single review I read stated that Axl / DC is a great fit. I assume all the usual complainers that have been whining before that this will be a disaster for Axl and Guns will at least shut up now International news reactions in the Rolling Stone, Guardian and Billboard are pretty great too: https://www.rollingstone.de/presseschau-acdc-mit-axl-rose-in-lissabon-ein-triumph-axldc-1023479/ Germany: http://www.sueddeutsche.de/kultur/acdc-konzert-in-lissabon-axl-rose-die-kroete-im-rollstuhl-1.2984447 http://www.sueddeutsche.de/kultur/acdc-konzert-axl-rose-gelungene-premiere-als-acdc-saenger-1.2984111-6 http://www.faz.net/aktuell/feuilleton/pop/ac-dc-welttour-axl-rose-ueberzeugt-als-neuer-saenger-14221421.html https://www.rollingstone.de/acdc-mit-axl-rose-in-lissabon-die-fotos-und-die-besten-videos-1023525/ http://www.welt.de/newsticker/dpa_nt/infoline_nt/boulevard_nt/article155148342/Axl-Rose-erobert-skeptische-AC-DC-Fans-im-Sitzen.html http://www.bild.de/unterhaltung/musik/acdc/axl-rose-gibt-erstes-konzert-fuer-dieaustralische-hardrockband-45712248.bild.html Switzerland: http://www.20min.ch/entertainment/musik/story/Axl-Rose-heizt-erstmals-mit-AC-DC-ein-21909324 http://www.blick.ch/people-tv/ersatz-fuer-kranken-saenger-johnson-hier-heizt-axl-rose-mit-ac-dc-ein-im-sitzen-id5007517.html http://www.srf.ch/sendungen/glanz-und-gloria/axl-rose-rockt-ac-dc-fans-im-sitzen
  6. Is Axl the best frontman of all time?

    I would not say that is the best front man. If you look at the energy and passion on stageof a Bruce Springsteen or Angus Young (who I consider to be the frontman for AC/DC), Axl is not even close. But I do consider Axl to be the last real mega rockstar, in the same league as Freddie Mercury, Jim Morrison or Mick Jagger (when the stones were still about rock n roll). His charisma, excentricity, erratic fits, attitude, the wildness in his younger years, the way he dresses...it does not get closer to thedefinition of being a rockstar. So greatest frontman no, but greatest still living rockstar.
  7. so why exactly is this quote an issue? Richard`s 16 years in the band are a fact.
  8. Axl Rose gifts personalized tour jackets

    Schwarzenegger and Stallone were also at Coachella during Guns gig, at least Arnie should have gotten this jacket too! But most likely it is has nothing to do with Axl giving out gifts, but belongs to the highly professional marketing campaing for this tour.
  9. Richard a bit overbearing?

    oh good, another one of these threads.... As the Frank, Melissa and now Richard bashing threads are already open Iwonder what is next? some suggestions: Axl Rose a bit too stiff on stage Slash`s hat is a little overwhelming Duff is too tall for the stage
  10. hard to tell....Guns is the better band for me for sure, even I like Maiden. Bruce indeed has a lot of energy and really works with and pushes the crowd, so he is pretty good as a frontman. However one has to consider that Maiden shows go only for about 90-100 minutes only and Guns is usually 2,5 hours. Also Axl on the other hand has a much more of charisma on stage and is like the prototype of a rockstar. Wonder how Bruce know sounds nowadaysafter his throat/tongue cancer therapy....
  11. Official: Axl will join AC/DC for stadium tour/US dates

    this whole discussion is so useless.... Didn`t Axl once say: "This ain`t Burger King, you can`t have it your way"..... all this "Axl should do this, Axl needs to do that, Guns should have done that, they need to do this to be big again...." It is what it is, and it is the biggest year for Guns in decades.Personally I think it is awesome that I at least get to see Axl in Europe this year. Really do not get the complaining, the Americans get the full Reunion tour AND Axl/DC shows and we Europeans at least get Axl/DC.
  12. Official: Axl will join AC/DC for stadium tour/US dates

    The "hardcore" AC/DC fans have propably seen their band more than enough in the past 40 years, let them riot on the internet. AC/DC shows here are pretty much family events, they will sell out even if the "hardcore" fans decide to boycott the shows. Actually most comments on the Youtube for the Coachella vids of Whole Lotta Rosie and RiffRaff are positive. So I guess once Axl pulls it off in the first few shows decently I think most people will be happy that they had to chance to see (the remainsof) AC/DC live for one last time....
  13. Official: Axl will join AC/DC for stadium tour/US dates

    complain, whine, bitch.... I really do not understand why anybody would be unhappy to see his favorite singer (well at least should be in a Guns fan forum, not so sure though actually), to take a once in a lifetime chance to tour with the second biggest rock band on the planet (I guess onlythe Stones are bigger). Also it is not like the reunion would be a flop because of this (absolutely no logic behind that anyways....):The reunion tour is going great so far, I think Axl sounds pretty good, everybody in the band seems to have a good time. Well except for some "fans"....Adler is not there, Slash will cry and get upset because of Angus, it is all Axl`s fault that Izzy does not want to tour, Frank is the worst drummer on the planet, Guns should only play club venues, 26 stadium (!!!?) shows are not enough, the bad press gives AC/DC more attention than the Guns reunion (what do you want to do? there was decent news coverage about the Guns reunion, but AC/DC just is the much bigger band nowadays), Axl will ruin his voice by singing (seriously?? he is a SINGER, that is what he does for a living!?), because of these20 dates there will be never be no new guns album ever, Axl will fail miserably, Axl does not look like he looks on the poster in my room from 1989 anymore, Axl just broke his foot to get out of this reunion,everything is bad and can only get worse... I mean what is wrong with you people? This is the most exciting year in Guns history in the past 20 years and half the forum still complains... While I have a little more understanding for the AC/DC fans complaining, because that band is really dissolving rapidly, I do also do understand Angus. AC/DC has always been much bigger than the individual members (except for Angus) and if he wants to finish their last tour and give a million fans the opportunity to say goodbye.And if Anguscan do it with a bang by signing one of the biggest names in rock, what the f.... is wrong with that?
  14. Axl/DC Roll Call

    count me in for Bern, Switzerland
  15. Official: Axl will join AC/DC for stadium tour/US dates

    Just watched Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff a couple of times, actually Axl is doing pretty good. Most of the not hardcore AC/DC fans I talked to were pleasantly surprised. The hardcore AC/DC fans whine of course, but to be honest they will be a minority for the shows in Europe. The AC/DC shows I attended last year in Europe were more like family entertainment events, I actually think many will find it rather cool that 2 of the biggest names in rock history collide on one stage. In any way, I guess it is a once in a lifetime chance to see Axl playing with AC/DC, I really do not understand why any rock fan would not want to see that. I reckon it will be AC/DCs last tour, so they go with a bang. Marketing wise also for Guns I think it is actually pretty good, the amount of news coverage is simply crazy....it has been everywhere from CNN to the tabloids to business magazins...
