  1. How much has CD sold as of 2015?

    I'll need to find the original topic that this spawned from. These gold and platinum figures, in most of the countries, are based on shipments to retailers and not sells to the public. Despite that, arguing with the OP is for fools. At the very best scenario, CD sold 1.8 million by 2011 since there confirmed one million left over at Best Buy. There are no other certifications from the countries that certify based on shipments. There is no proof that anything else sold. Everything else in this blast from the past lol worthy topic is bullshit. Cya.
  2. What went wrong with NUGNR?

    You are such a liar. We went over it for days. The sales figures are mostly by orders to retailers, NOT actual sales. That is why many ended up in dollar stores. The album did not sell well with the public. "Extrapolate." Remember?
  3. Just logged in to post that it's fuckin hilarious to watch the people that were complaining about a nostalgia cash grab are now complaining because they don't have the nostalgic lineup on stage. This is a sign that they want to be more than just a greatest hits act. They want to prolong the moment. That's a good sign for the future(or at least the intent).
  4. New Alan Niven interview

    I can't imagine that there was a good feeling from Gilby's disastrous SCOM cover.
  5. New Alan Niven interview

    Of course it's a money decision. It was always going to be the catalyst for a reunion. If anyone thought they lived in a world where the 5 guys would magically say, "yay. Let's forget everything and be good friends," they were fooling themselves. I know some like to look at celebrities as alternate beings on a high plain but it's not like that. They are still people with grudges and egos. It's also funny how the best news to come out of the GNR scene in 20 years results in many finding reasons to piss and moan. You'd think a neglected fanbase would at least find some positive in the reconciliation they currently have. Life is progressive and any return to the original 5 will also be progressive and the band just took a huge first step.
  6. If it comes from MSL, it's most likely bullshit. Remember?
  7. Have TB redeemed themselves in the eyes of their critics?

    No. If anything, they helped fuel the feud much more than it should have been. The lies about the late night visit from Slash most likely spoiled what could have been a reunion almost 10 years ago.
  8. Get on board, Tommy. Or whatever the alternative was.
  9. I don't know how they managed to pull it off without Gilby. Clearly, as long as Axl and Slash are on stage together, the audience will approve. Duff only improves the reception and Izzy, Steven/Matt would make it even better. A few purists thought it would need to be a complete AFD reunion and ONLY AFD for it to be a huge event. Then a few thought that having any nugnr member over someone like Gilby would be a failure. Neither are true.
  10. It's common knowledge that Axl didn't rehearse and show up for soundchecks. Just figure that he flies in around showtime or sometimes a little after and you can figure out that he wasn't there for soundcheck. The funny part is he was always angry about the sound being off or not being able to hear himself etc. Then show up for soundcheck FFS!
  11. Da fuq is this? well if Axl does ruin his voice thats a career end for him...so i see where hes coming from Or Axl could sing correctly and rehearse. His point was crazier than eating fruit loops on acid while standing on Manson's shoulders.
  12. Management seems to be dropping the ball in terms of promotion. Facebook posts and etc are cutesy and only appeal to those that care to check the pages of the band/members. The average Joe is still clueless about this whole thing and management needs to get their head out of their ass.
