  1. Reunion Setlist?

    Double Talkin' Jive seems like a lock, in my opinion. They're going to need some songs like that where Slash and Duff can just jam for a while and Axl can go back and... do whatever he does.
  2. Line Up? and Old/New GnR Songs

    The majority of the casual music listening public just wants to see Axl and Slash on stage together again, regardless of who else is around them, Duff included.
  3. I don't think there's any correlation between Axl's weight and the Mickey voice. He was in pretty good shape in 2002 and couldn't get any rasp to save his life. I think it's just a matter of how he prepares and how he takes care of his vocal chords.
  4. If I sign up for Nightrain membership right now can I still take advantage of the fan club pre-sale?
  5. Slash is probably playing the best guitar of his life right now and I would imagine the last thing Axl wants is to wake up the day after a concert and read headlines like "Slash sounded great, but what happened to Axl?" so if being up on stage with him doesn't motivate Axl to get his shit together nothing will.
  6. I don't see any big arena shows before Coachella, but I could definitely see a "last minute" show at the Roxy or Wiltern or something like that.
  7. Guns N' Roses have always hung their hat on being the world's most dangerous band. In the group's glory years, you didn't know whether they would show up, whether they would be strung out or sober, whether they would attack someone in the crowd, whether they would storm off before the show is over. Now they're all in their 50s, most of them married with kids. There's not much danger left anymore. If they want to keep some aura of "danger" going by not tweeting out to fans about their every movement and leaving some suspense about what is actually going to happen when they take the stage at Coachella, I don't think that's the worst thing in the world.
  8. That's too bad. I know people will pick out certain shows here and there they really like, but Baz's guy had him sounding better on a night-in-night-out basis than anytime in Axl's career post-1993.
  9. I admittedly haven't paid much attention to NuGNR after 2008, but I just went to YouTube and watched some of the live DVD Axl put out and HOLY SHIT does he sound bad. If that's how he's going to sound, they honestly shouldn't even bother showing up Coachella. The world is going to be watching and it will just further tarnish his legacy. All that said, he sounded awful in 2002 and came back to sound great in 2006. I recall hearing around that time that he was working with Baz's vocal coach on doing vocal exercises before/after shows during those tours. Maybe he needs to give that guy a call.
  10. There's not one person or group managing GNR anymore. I'm sure Axl/Slash/Duff all have their own people negotiating to make agreements on everything that happens.
  11. I'm sure Axl, Slash and Duff can say whatever they want - but the last thing management (the new management, i.e. Slash and Duff's people) probably want is some nobody keyboard player tweeting endlessly about Guns N' Roses reunion.
  12. I would imagine every single thing has been put in writing in a contract, from money (guessing Axl and Slash get the biggest cut) to time they hit the stage, to amount of rehearsals and how many of them Axl has to show up to.
  13. I would anticipate part of the Coachella deal is that no future tour dates will be announced until after the performance. Or at least until well after all the tickets have been sold. I imagine Coachella wants to retain some air of exclusivity in the sense that this "may" be the one and only show the reunited Guns N' Roses plays. If the band announces a whole US/World Tour before Coachella even happens, it makes the Coachella performance a little less special.
  14. I don’t think this would be happening if there wasn’t something of a real friendship being rekindled. The money has always been there, so why do it now? I would like to think they have re-connected on some level, even if it’s just texting here and there. I don’t expect them to go out to dinner together and stuff - Slash has another band and two kids, and Axl has.. whatever he has going on.
