  1. What Are You Listening To 2017

    Happiness Is A Warm Gun -The Beatles
  2. What Are You Listening To 2017

    I do love listening to the instrumentals on CD.

    You wore Guns shirts to an AC/DC gig? Bold. What I meant by the crowd was that people weren't throwing shit and putting up signs just to egg him on (which has happened at previous Guns gigs). The crowd seemed cautions at first but ready to have a good time.

    Well, he doesn't have to do anything... As for the rest, would you prefer if he retired at this point? I was pretty much convinced that he had retired after 2014...
  5. GNR Women's discussion

    You say it's childish and I agree that it's probably a little cowardly (especially if it that is the reason he won't release more music like @MillionsOfSpiderssuggested). But if those are his feelings on the matter the... what can one do? I can empathise with not wanting to feed the general negativity. But I also think it's not right to have gag orders on the rest of the band and halt future creative output. But then again, we are talking as fans and as you said,Who cares about the fans? Idk, I was just trying to state how things might be from Axl's POV but what the fuck would I know? (PS: If you think someone is being passive-aggressive towards you maybe try and sort it out on PM? Might be a misunderstanding? idk) Did you go to the UK shows? I went to the Manchester show and yeah, it was pretty fucking spectacular. There was a lot ofscrutiny and knee-jerk negativity all around but he managed to deliver. Maybe it was his inner fan-boy driving him on. Perhaps he always had a dream of singing for AC/DC and was like, "If Brian ever leaves, I am so in!". It also helped that (from my experience) the AC/DC fans and concert attendees didn't go out of their way to be assholes and try to get a rise out of him.

    I would love to read hisautobiography as well for those exact reasons but my point is that it would not be taken seriously by most fans. During the CD-years there were certain fans that would say that they would like to hear things from his perspective but the raretimes he did do a interview, those same fans would dismiss it as ridiculous. So I wonder, why would he even bother releasing a book from his P.O.V? Just to sate our sick curiosity...? We may think it's "interesting" but would we believe any of it? Why would he publish it if he thinks no one will believe him? This is the sort of feeling I get when I try to put myself in Axl's shoes. But itdoesn't seem like Axl feels that he did wrong (though he does admit to being an asshole), so I doubt fans would be satisfied by what Axl has to say. Unless he has a had a drastic epiphany, I doubt his POV will ever change.As far as the CE interview, I could pull up about a dozen or more posts calling it bullshit if I could be bothered. In fact I think the only reason people weren't harsher on him for that interview was because the interviewer came across as a bigger asshole (which is quite a feat). Pretty much.

    See this is precisely why an autobiography from Axl would serve no purpose!His P.O.V is wildly different from that of everyone else and any future statements he makes, anyautobiography he releases would likely be more of the same and would be just as difficult to take seriously...
  8. GNR Women's discussion

    ... yeah but my mind again goes back to the CBGB video in which both Izzy and Duff can be seen laughing a singing along to the song. You can't see Slash's reaction cuz he's turned away. In fact Steven was the only one that looked a little bummed out (though that could have been due to him not having much to do other than shaking that tambourine). Their body language and the looks on their faces read to me as, "I can't believe we're getting away with it!" Idk, I have really mixed feeling on the matter...
  9. GNR Women's discussion

    I wish he would talk more about it as well. But at the same time I think... what would be the point of talking now? In the past 20 years whenever Axl has spoken about it, his words were ridiculed. Even after last year's resurgence, Axl is thought of as a bit of a joke (even by his fans). Besides, there are too many people that have come forward with their accounts of what happened back then and a lot of them corroborate each other. So I feel that now it's got the point that unless Axl comes out and agrees to all the stuff everyone else has said, if his account of that time deviates even a little bit, he will be mocked and brushed aside as a delusional egomaniac. I've always thought that jealousy was a big part of it. But if I give Axl the benefit of doubt, maybe rather than jealousy Axl thought Slash was working with people that Axl didn't respect and thought were beneath their station... "I never said that I was bitter," Rose explains, characteristically concerned with making fine distinctions. "Hurt, yeah. Disappointed. I mean, with Slash, I remember crying about all kinds of things in my life, but I had never felt hot, burning tears … hot, burning tears of anger. Basically, to me, it was because I am watching this guy and I don't understand it. Playing with everyone fromSpace GhosttoMichael Jackson. I don't get it. I wanted the world to love and respect him. I just watched him throw it away." - Axl Speaks (Rolling Stone, Jan 2000) It might also have been impending fear of Slash leaving. In the 90's during the dormant periods of GnR, Slash was out there playing with/for other artists. He continued building his profile as a musician and started to separate himself from GnR. It is possible that Axl feared loosing Slash long before Slash actually left, which could have fed his paranoia and negativity. BTW: I think VMA-92 was the only time Axl turned up to collect an award for GnR back then... but I'm not 100%. Could some one confirm or correct me if I'm wrong? I still feel a little... sceptical about the how much the other guys protested recording OIAM. One part of me believes them and feels great empathy for Slash and his family... but another part of me looks back at the '87 CBGB video and can't help but doubt it all.
  10. I remember the first time I heard Madagascar was also around the first time I read interview he did with Rolling Stone. I can't listen to the song without recalling this part of the article...

    ...tread carefully. Remember you ninja training!

    Maybe I missed something cuz I don't see anyone saying that it's not okay to speculate either way. To me both scenarios equally as likely/unlikely because we don't have any evidence supporting either. So any theory we may come up with is just, as you say, speculation. She could have deleted her IG because: TB/Axl asking her to stop (as you have said). Got into some beef with at someone in the GnR camp and decided to cut ties (interesting that she un-followed Slash andMeegan) Somehow got some closure for that part in her life and wanted to move on. She got tired of the trolls/fans/Axl-defenders/fans etc, bugging her for more juicy details. Got tired of social media all together. Many people delete their social media accounts cuz it's fuckin exhausting to maintain it. It wasn't really Erin to begin with! She got hacked. ...other crazy theories that I can't think of now. Maybe we should convince someone to go to Atlanta and ask her.
  13. GNR Women's discussion

    I don't know about TB, but I do remember seeing a few troll comments by other IG users/"fans". It doesn't make sense for TB/Axl to step in and ask her to stop after she basically defended him... I'd rather not blame everything on Axl/TB until we have some proof.
  14. GNR Women's discussion

    I think he's already there. It's a little sad but he's an adult and he kinda chose this for himself so... whatever. Who knows? They might be better mates than we give them credit for. Atleast he didn't marry a gold-digger just so she could take half his money and leave him heartbroken. Maybe doing it this way keeps the perspective in check... Beautiful pic.
