  1. I haven't even checked out any of the videos of Axl's performances, such is my lack of enthusiasm for all things AC/DC. Surely I can't be the only GNR fan who has zero interest in AC/DC? I really hope once Axl finishes the dates he has with them, that it will mark the end of his association with that band. I kind of feel as if the whole GNRreunion has been such a damp squib. I didn't wait 23 years to seeSlash and Axl to play together again, only for Axl to bugger off and play with AC/DC. This is the least interested I've been followingAxl Rosesince I became a fan.
  2. Am I the only GNR fan that has zero interest in AC/DC?

  3. Not true. At least two of the songs (Aqualung and Death Of It) were solelyBumblefoot compositions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ZvllbJBnU
  4. Bullshit. Ron's done some great solo stuff, and Art of Anarchy's album trumps Chinese Democracy any day of the week.
  5. What went wrong with NUGNR?

    It'd be quicker to ask what went right with NuGNR. The answer? Nothing. /thread.
  6. What intrigues me is, does Slash have long-term intentions with this whole thing and do you think this is something the big three have discussed? I would love to know if Slash still saw himself being in GNR five years from now.

    You've already admitted how little you know of his music Len, so I think you're really not in the know on this one.
  8. Prince 1958 - 2016

    It's true, he was. The man was Niles Rodgers at rhythm, Jimi at lead and to top it off, one of the most prolific and giftedsinger/songwriters of our time. He will go down with the greatest.

    Yeah, I just saw someone on Facebook talk about what a great song Kiss is and it's like, you ain't got the first fucking clue mate. I know most artists are defined by a relatively small number of tracks (at least in the minds of the general public), but in Prince's case, his body of work is so sprawling, so ambitious and so creative that it almost feels disrespectful to define him that same way. People just don't know what we've lost here. If you're reading this and you don't really know what I'm referring to, check out a song like Power Fantastic, or Crystal Ball, or All My Dreams. I mean, I could go on all day, but to me, this is the real Prince. Avant garde, ethereal, psychedelic.... people really don't know the extent of this mans talents. Most people haven't even begun to scratch the surface with this guy. Evenif you own every record the man put out, you still haven't even started with him.

    I think Prince was always an accidental superstar. Really, he was far more suited to being an indie, cult artist as much of his music goes way over the heads of Joe Public. We live in very unsophisticated times, Prince releasing music today is literally like casting pearls before the swine and I don't care if that comes off as snobby or elitist, because anybody who is truly familiar with his body of work knows exactly what I'm talking about.

    As I'm sure most of you know, I'm a massive Prince fan. Him and MJ were like Gods to me growing up. For about ten years I listened to nothing but MJ and Prince. To me, Prince was just so much cooler than practically everybody else out there. When I think of Prince, yes of course there's the incredible art (which most people are criminally oblivious to), but one of the main things that I think of was just how cool he was. He was the best and he fucking knew it. You could put him ona stage with ANYONE, and he would own them. He had a talent that almost seemed supernatural, it was so intuitive to him, he literally breathed music. I've seen him share a stage with many artists over the years and you always came away feeling bad for the other artists. Nobody stood a fucking chance when that little dude was onstage. I consider myself so lucky to have witnessed him doing his thing multiple times over the yearsand they are memoriesI will cherish.
