  1. Speculation: Was Axl in mind before Brian left?

    That's not it. I've hardly got the time.
  2. Speculation: Was Axl in mind before Brian left?

    Hi everyone. It's been awhile. Who's fired up about the South America tour? I'm trying to figure out how to get down there for a show or two. I know for a fact that the tour routing initially looked different and the Texas dates were supposed to happen at the beginning of the tour. I saw texas shows on the schedule immediately after Mexico City. I think there was a couple weeks in between. There were a few other changes that had to happen along the way. ACDC was not in play in February/ early March when they had tentative holds on football stadiums around the country. They quickly made the changes to accommodate this opportunity for Axl. I think we'll all agree here that ACDC ended up becoming the ultimate tourpromotion for Guns N' Roses. Axl delivered and received a lot of great press where the press legitimizedhim as one of the all-time great singers who can still perform at a high level. This will definitely help ticket sales as they tour across the globe and possibly next Fall when they bring the tour back to the States barring no major incident. I kind of find it hard to believe that Angus would plot a firing of Brian with so few shows left.
  3. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    keep in mind that this tour has a payroll of nearly $300,000 per month, $550,000 in hotel expenses, $110,000 in per diem, and so forth. This doesn't count truck and bus rental, airfare, fuel costs, band member salaries,and more.It is quite possible that it would take 25% of the income to cover all of this. If all of this income is dispersed through a management company controlled by Axl, a 50% cut seems plausible.

    Remember Trey, any fool with a dick can make a baby but only a real man can raise his child.

    Matt thought that he would be a part of it and is upset with Slash and Duff for not lobbying to get him in. I wish. I love that song.

    To some extent, I agree with you, but... GNR are one of the rare bands where you knew all of the players. Most fans during that time couldn't tell you who the guitarist in White Lion was but they could name all 5 guys in GNR. Especially many of the peoplewho can actually afford the high ticket prices - they were invested in this band at some point in their younger years and could probably tell you the name of every band member. It is being marketed as a reunion tour so many of these people are hoping to see Izzy.

    Duff, the well-spoken diplomat should have stepped in to answer the interviewer's question.

    If he is smart he will not respond and will save any explanation for his book.
  9. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    None of this is surprising to me based on the early stories I heard regarding the band meetings leading up to the tour. I suppose if I were a PR guy working for the tour, I would have coached Axl, Slash, Duff, and anyone else who may eventually take questions about the formation of this tour on exactly how to answer inevitable questions concerning the line up and lack of Izzy involvement. Axl fumbled that question when he should have been as prepared as Hillary Clinton would be for a debate by the time he sat on that couch. One can guess that part of the reason why no previous interviews or press conferenceswere given before this were to duck questions on this topic. Remember how mysteriously Axl's appearance on Kimmel wascancelled after the band meetings? I guess history shows that people outside of the United States care less about who is in GNR than the fickle Americans. Axl is the big draw and can generate large crowds with no other original members. It may not affect ticket sales for the next year, but if this thing stays together, they'll eventually be looking to sell tickets back in the States again and stories like this may make a difference to certain fans.
  10. Axl's voice sounds pretty good on Civil War again tonight. I wish I could have made this show. Stuck in fucking Omaha. Either these streams really suck or my hotel internet is slow. Maybe all of the above. That metfan dude is coming through though.
  11. I have an honest question for you real musicians out there. What kind of texture are Mr Reed and Melissa laying down in the background for some of these songs that don't require keyboards? What are they adding to Outtagetme me, for example? I've seen severalrock bands use keyboard players on tour for a few songs and the keyboardists don't stay on stage the whole time pretending to play like it seems that these two do. I don't quite understand it
  12. Because they would tour arenas with arena stages and not the one off stadium stage. They would have played Miami in the first place had the stadium not been closed for renovations.
  13. GNR Women's discussion

    I don't know the specifics on their family. I think I heard somewhere that the stepfather adopted Axl and his sister and I'm not sure about his brother. The only thing I really know is that Slash said in his book that the elaborate themed after show parties they planned on the UYI tour were stupid and nobody attended them.
  14. GNR Women's discussion

    So I've got nothing important to add but felt like joining in since I poster was inquiring about me. I can say that Amy Bailey sat near us at the Las Vegas concert. I said hello to her and she was actually quite nice. What was kind of cool to see was when the lights went down and the show started, she and her group seemed like they, like us, were nervous about Axl's voice. Watching them make faces of reliefand thumbs up to each other after Axl hit's his first high notes on It's So Easy was great to watch.
  15. Hard to say what will happen after this tour finishes next summer. As of now, it seems that we'll get the big shows in SA this fall, Australia/Asia in January - March, Europe/ UK in the Summer. If they come back to North America with this tour, we're probably going to get cities like this in the fall. ARENAS: Canada: Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver US: Portland, Sacramento, Los Angeles (Staples Center this time), Salt Lake City, Denver, San Antonio or Austin, St. Louis (big media deal will be made of this), Miami, Charlotte, Birmingham, Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Louisville
