  2. When they did the Voodoo Lounge tour, they did 5 or 6 songs from the album, I remember Keith performing The Worst. Thru and Thru came later when The Sopranos made it popular and they did the HBO special.
  3. Slash sounded like he had to deal with the wrath of Perla if he didn't go. An AFD show with just the 5 guys will probably never happen, it'll be the full band plus Steven and Izzy. I think if GNR had unfinished recordings that they want Izzy and Steven to add parts to, that's more likely.
  4. I'm pretty sure he's been managing them for a while.
  5. The audience didn't seem to miss Steve Perry when Journey performed, but GNR and VH didn't reunite at Rock Hall either, so the door's still open. I'm sure Azoff was pushing them to do it with the upcoming festivals.
  6. The shows are a well-oiled machine. The people that have been going seem to be getting their money's worth. People going to multiple shows might feel let down if the setlist's more or less the same from the last time, but they also sit in different seats, different venues, different cities sometimes, different group of people you went with, all factors into a fun night out. Maybe the girlfriend (or kid, or girlfriend with kid) was a bad idea to bring. As far as new albums go, it's hard to justify putting something out that is just going to be heard streaming or on You Tube and maybe get 30,000 (if they're lucky) the first week, but no one can predict how it would do. It depends how people take to new music with Axl and Slash vs repackaging a new Greatest Hits and Deluxe Editions (which bands are always actively involved in, they just turn the tapes in and hear the results later) of the back catalog (yes, including ChiDem). We'll probably get a live album out of this tour if there's an ending point to it. They might just keep this going every few years, release a few new songs here and there, instead of a new album.
  7. After Azoff does this festival with the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, he's probably going to do the same thing next year with Van Halen playing 2 night stadium shows with Sam one night, Dave the next, Michael Anthony and Wolfgang taking turns on bass. It wouldn't be far fetched if GNR play one or two of those shows, even factoring in the Azoff vs Rose lawsuit. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Van Halen's first album and the 30th anniversary of AFD (or at least when AFD screamed up the charts) at one show?? It would be for a ridiculous amount of money to see it happen, esp. if there was an AFD lineup reunion w/ Izzy & Steven taking part, it would be a year and a half from now.
  8. Just saw "Gimme Danger" about the Stooges, which was a lot of fun to watch, just heard about one called "Beside Bowie" about Mick Ronson coming soon, "The Terry Kath Experience" about the late guitarist of Chicago also coming out soon and looks good.
  9. There's also the KISS Kruises which seem to do well every year, some of it's cheesy like "cooking with Paul Stanley" but as far as meet and greet/fan experience events go, it's a good one. I think they do M&Gs at every show but have no idea how much they run. Probably better off doing the Kruise. It'll be Tommy Thayer to the very last gig in KISS makeup, I doubt we'll see Ace or Peter in makeup anymore. An out of makeup show, I can see Ace being a special guest, or Bruce Kulick. The show is still great but Paul's voice cracks here and there. Gene sounds fine.
  10. They might have talked over the phone in 1991 when Axl heard Freddie was sick, pretty much everyone knew why but he didn't want to make an announcement about it. I think Axl's also good friends with Bernie Taupin who lives or lived in Santa Ynez, surprised he's never been asked to co-write with GNR. Or maybe he did and it didn't pan out. The tribute concert was the beginning of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, but you pretty much have every great frontman in rock sharing the same stage - Paul Rodgers, Axl, Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, David Bowie. I think it was also Mick Ronson's last concert.
  11. In 2004, people were already burning copies of their own "GNR Greatest Hits" but I guess a lot of people still wanted storebought copies. The lawsuit was a losing battle because hits and live albums were part of the recording contract. Sometimes a hits collection can hurt a back catalog, It probably hurt UYI I & 2 more than AFD. Estranged was nowhere as big as November Rain. I have to wonder what Axl's reaction was when he got the RIAA platinum award for Greatest Hits. Cheetah Chrome said GNR sales were a huge cash injection for him. Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney make so much money in publishing and their back catalogs that they probably didn't notice.
