  1. Fortus and Frank were both brought in by Tommy. Tommy was the most essential new GnR member. Once he left, it was over.
  2. Best GnR side projects?

    Art of Anarchy
  3. I'm guessing 6 things lead to the reunion that we have, and the fact that these all happened around the same time is probably a miracle. 1. It became clear by 2014 that Bumblefoot was leaving, which left an open spot for a guitar player. According to Ashba, Axl originally wanted him AND Slash to share lead. 2. By 2014 it became clear to Axl that Tommy Stinson was going to leave the band. According to things MSL has said over the years, Duff was on call to take over bass when ever Tommy quit, possibly as early as 2010. 3. Duff was back in the band by 2014. We didn't know it at the time, but him filling in for Tommy was likely the beginning of him rejoining. By that time Tommy had probably told Axl that would be his last tour with GnR and the band likely knew Duff was returning. Duff probably would've rejoined with or without Slash, but he was likely able to convince Axl to talk to Slash so they could settle their differences. It wouldn't have been very hard... Duff could've just been hanging with Axl and Slash could've called Duff and Duff could've put Slash on speaker andhad Axl talk to him. 4. With Duff and Slash back in the band, and with Sixx AM busy doing their own thing, Ashba decided that his place was with Sixx AM, not with GnR. 5. Pitman got mad because he wasn't being mentioned in the reunion promo, and likely got into an argument with Axl and told him to go fuck himself. 6. Axl was talking to Brain about Pitman leaving and Brain told Axl he had the perfect replacement. And that's where Melissa came in.
  4. Temple of the Dog to reunite

    Still waiting for an Audioslave reunion....
  5. Who here likes every GNR song?

    I do. The best part about GnR is the diversity. You can have a song as simple and stripped down as OIAM, patience, or you're crazy, to a song that's very technical and complex like OMG, Shacklers, to straight toward rockers like WTTJ, UCBM, and ballads like NR and estranged. Axl is my favorite artist. I've supported all lineups of GnR and I've liked every album they've put out. CD is my favorite album by any band, UYI2 is a close second.
  6. Not just once either. They played it 2 and a half times.
  7. All is doing awesome. Still hoping to hear CITR though
  8. Its one of my favorites and with all the crapI've had to deal with this past year I will cry if they play it while I'm here.
  9. They're sound checking CITR RIGHT Now!!!!!!!!
  10. For those wondering, parking at Nicks Steakhouse on route 1 is only $20. It's about a 20 minute walk from the show.
  11. Can't wait. Traffic is going to suck leaving though.
  12. How can (I'm assuming a rock station) get away with not playing GnR? We have 3 Rock stations and 4 classic rock stations where I am and no matter which one I'm listening to I almost always come across a GnR song on a half hour ride. They get played as much as ACDC, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd.
  13. Because gnr have been playing them for the last 15 years. IDC who plays in the band, I'm going to a GnR show to hear Axl sing. The music sounds the same to me for the most part no matter who is playing it.
  14. One of the most well known/best selling songs ever is margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet... By the logic some people here are using, a song about some old drunk guy who can't get his life together is a better song than November Rain? Or Prostitue?
  15. It's one of my favorite GnR songs... But the best since UYI....? Tough to give it that. Maybe if you had the 99 demo combined with bumblefoots partsat the end... But as it stands, I think prostitute is better. IRS and TWAT are close too. Better is good but I've never gotten into the song as much as some people have. The final version of SOD sucks IMO, but I loved the 2002/2001 version. Madagascar, TIL, SR, and ITW are all good too in their own respect, but they're all different sounding so it's hard to compare them to things other GnR members have done post UYI.
