  1. I'm tired of the money angle too.  Whether you realize it or not, you hit the nail on the head.  Money IS the main reason and motivation for EVERYTHING ANYONE does.   I want a new car... house... clothes... I have to make money.  So it motivates me to go to school and learn a trade to get a job that's going to pay well so I can afford that.  I'm certainly not going to go to work and do my job for free... and I'll volunteer my time and talent from time to time for a good cause.  But we all have to make money, and we're going to do what we can to earn it so we can have nice things.  For some people, like Axl, Duff and Slash, it's going to come very easily.  More power to them.  Def Leopard isn't performing regularly for free, last time I checked.  So this clown is calling the kettle black.  GNR's just going to make up for lost time with their big pay day this year.   The world revolves around money.  That's just the way it is.
  2. Rank: Top 5 GNR Songs?

    Let's not forget about other popular threads on this forum... like: -List your top 10 GNR songs -List your top 20 GNR songs -List your top 5 GNR songs -List your top 15 GNR songs Never thought I'd say this but... newbies. Cripes.
  3. This. They've been along for the ride for 20 years. And they'll do whatever it takes to keep it that way.
  4. Who the fuck does this know-it-all think he is? Dude... I'm in my 30's and have been a fan of GNR since WTTJ aired on MTV. And to be blunt, you sound like a snot nosed piece of shit. What does, "you know the types" even supposed to mean? Sounds like you're just insulting an entire generation of people if you ask me. Clearly you're not a part of that generation. But somehow you idolize a band and a lead singer who's a part of that age group. So what the fuck does that make you? I can tell you this... I know your type. Sounds like you're part of the entitled, uneducated, my-shit-don't-stink mama's boy on mom's computer on the life road to nowhere. A waste of space. I'm pretty sure anyone alive today that was also alive in 1988 is very well aware that 1988 was nearly 30 years ago. And I'm also pretty sure that accomplished people pushing 50 aren't going to give a shit what Axl Rose looks like. There's a lot more to life that you clearly have no comprehension of, and likely never will. Where are the mods at around here? This is about one of the dumbest, ignorant and generally insulting threads I've ever seen around here.
  5. I don't know about eye lids drooping... but my balls are certainly doing that. Pretty soon I'll be tripping over them.
  6. All this talk about GNR being a 'band of the people' and 'tickets are too much' and blah blah blah. GNR's like KISS. It's all ridiculous. These guys aren't just in it to play music for a bunch of wankers whining about ticket prices for dirt cheap. It costs a ton of money just to put on a tour. I'm sure these guys would like to make some money, too. It's their living. If you were a lawyer, would you do trials for free or dirt cheap? If you work at McDonalds, would you work for half minimum wage? If you work as a construction worker, are you going to work for minimum wage? If you were the best quarterback in the NFL, would you settle for third string QB money and not accept a huge payday because you want to be a 'Quarterback of the people'? Listen to all of you... it's ridiculous. Not a single one of you would go to your job today, if you even have a real job, and accept a paycut. And if what you were doing was in high demand, you certainly would milk it for all it's worth. Grow up, all of you. You all sound like a bunch of babies (with a few exceptions).
  7. We have a bingo! That's definitely it.
  8. Very cool! I totally remember that story about Axl bringing the CD to a bar. From what I remember, it was a strip club or something and he had the DJ play it over the house system after hours. Could be a different incident but definitely brings back memories. I remember your forum too! And the GNR unlimited site. Crazy times. The download times back then killed me! Speaking of downloading... it pissed Axl off so much he even called all of us 'download mother fuckers' at shows. And he clearly followed the forums back then. Xozi's claim to fame was Axl calling her out at a concert! Talking about ass hole forum people spreading false rumors and thinking they know stuff when they know nothing at all. It was GLORIOUS for me... since I always trashed Xozi every chance I got. We eventually became friends when it became clear GNR wasn't amounting to much by 2002 or so. That's around when the old CD.com went offline briefly before being brought back by new people who still run it today I presume. That was the same time this forum started... it kind of took the place of the old CD.com. A lot of it's members came here. Xozi started a forum in South America somewhere... Brazil was it? Her home country. Wonder if she's still running it! I have no idea what the link is anymore. And I wonder if Queenie is still there making haste.
  9. No worries! I had a copy of RIR too. Although exciting to watch, I still felt indifferent about the whole thing. Buckethead was truly bizzar. Axl wasn't in top shape either (physically or vocally). Was still cool none-the-less.
  10. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    I agree. I just think it'll be cut up four ways. Axl, Slash and Duff get their share (which pays their own expenses and management teams)... and the fourth pays the rest of the bills... including the hired musicians and all the crew/props etc. etc. And Axl's caviar and bag of Utz potato chips for his green room.
  11. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    No, they don't even know who Izzy is. Or Fortus. All they care about is Slash and Axl. Deal with it. That doesn't make them morons.
  12. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    A Apparently you don't understand economics. Do you really think if they get 3 million per show Axl, Slash and Duff will get 1 million each? And the other guys won't get a cent? Lol. What about the other guys on the stage? What about the crew? What about the techs? What about management? What about the physical equipment... the stage... the pyro... lighting & sound people? What about travel expenses? Axl, Slash and Duff are going to do just fine. But they're not going to make 1 million per show, each. That money has to pay A LOT of people. And the backing musicians, whoever they are, will get a cut. They're not going to perform for free. I also saw GNR in 92. It was awesome. But again, all the masses care about are Axl and Slash. That's it.
  13. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    Speak for yourself, homeboy. I've been around since WTTJ first aired on MTV, and I'm happier than a retired thoroughbred triple crown winner in retirement. Just to see Axl and Slash on stage together again is good enough for me. Duff is icing on the cake. And for 95% of casual rock/GNR fans, that's also the case. It'll be sweet to see some guest appearances by Steven and Izzy, and probably even Matt, but I think that's all you're going to get from those guys for a myriad of reasons. Izzy's displeasure with consistent touring... Steven's inability to stay sober... etc. Another reason is MONEY. Axl, Slash and Duff are set to get much bigger paydays. I can picture all revenue being split between four parties equally... Axl, Slash, Duff... and the fourth equal share will get split up among the backing lineup/hired touring musicians. Anyway, you're in the minority wanting to see the 5 originals. Maybe not on this forum, but in the real world among casual fans (and many hardcores like myself), are perfectly happy with Axl, Slash and Duff.
  14. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    We're the other 452 threads speculating the same thing not good enough?
  15. That has to be a misquote. He must have meant "CD" and not "DVD". From what I know, there isn't any video of that show (rumor has it the band had it professionally shot, though).
