    Anything Trump, good or bad, christ figure or racistmisogynist hitler and everything in between.
  2. Was being in Guns N’ Roses the hardest gig you’ve had? Was the Replacements more difficult? You know, all of them had their own bits. I wouldn’t say any were any harder than the other. In terms of the Guns N’ Roses record, only because it took so long to get done, at the end of the day it seemed like still Axl wasn’t happy with it and so it kinda got yanked from his hands a little bit prematurely. That’s kind of a disappointment to me more than anything. All things considered, I think we all did our best job, put our best foot forward, and there’s that record, you know? You obviously played onChinese Democracyand toured behind it. What’s your take on that record? I think there’s some good stuff, I think there’s some not-so-good stuff and I think that probably could be said for all those Guns records. There’s some stuff that wasn’t my favorite but that’s just me. But that kinda goes with everyone’s fuckin’ records. I can’t even think of how many bands I like their entire fucking record. They are out there of course but I can’t think of one right now[laughing]. Did wanting to go back to basics like that maybe stem from your experience recordingChinese Democracy? You saw firsthand how that dragged on for years, right? Yeeaaahhh. Anyone, any musician can fuckin’ overthink things in a fuckin’ heartbeat and just beat the shit out of a song. I’ve seen many a good song ruined in that fashion and sadly it just happens. Musicians are a quirky bunch. Some of us don’t come from the greatest places, aren’t in the greatest fuckin’ headspace all the time so you gotta try and capture that magic in a bottle when you can. It’s hard to accomplish because getting what’s in your head on a fuckin’ record is completely…[laughs]…it’s our hardest gig we’ve got as musicians is tryin’ to get the ideas in the brain on the fuckin’ disk. It just takes a lot to pull that out and get it where they want it, exactly where they want it, where they fuckin’ think it’s supposed to be, the way it’s supposed to sound. All that. Do you prefer just chilling out and touring without so much of the gear that comes with the huge Guns N’ Roses shows and Replacements reunion shows? I like all of it for different reasons. I’ll be honest with you, I am stoked about the Guns N’ Roses reunion. All those guys are my buddies, except I don’t really know Slash. I don’t think I’ve ever met him. But all those guys are my friends and I’m glad they’re out doing it but I’d be lying if I said I missed that gig. I miss the people a whole lot and obviously you miss the fans and stuff like that. But where I’m at in life right now, that’s just a whole thing that…I’m not saying I’d never do it again but I’m kind of glad I moved on from that. http://observer.com/2017/01/tommy-stinson-guns-n-roses-bash-pop-replacements-album/?curator=MusicREDEF

    Some heroes don't wear capes The job was carried out by Skywriting Australia at a cost of $4,000. A spokesperson for the company told The Guardian that the clients, who wanted to remain anonymous, specifically wanted the message to appear during the Women’s March.
  7. I'm not sure the fans need Richard, Frank and Melissa in the band. If they really cared about the fans they would perform with Izzy and Steven, they would record new songs etc. All they do is playing the same songs in front of faceless crowds.

  9. Long version. Tommywrestled Colbert on stage as the show closed.
  10. Well I have been harsh enough with that PoR show. But they aren't desperate to sell overpriced tickets and Chris Cornell doesn't sound like Mickey Mouse.
  11. "Best since NA" You guys must be smoking crack.no excuse for that awful performance
  12. Of course... the setlist hasbeen stale since the beginning.
  13. Axl clearly shows up unprepared. He struggles with every song.

  16. Terminator Franchise On Hold Indefinitely

    It seemed likeTerminator Genisyshad killed theTerminatorfranchise once and for all, but a new hero is coming back: James Cameron. Cameron, who wrote and directed the first two films, regains the rights in 2019 and is reportedly working withDeadpooldirector Tim Miller on a brand new film. According toDeadline, Cameron is working with Miller, who would direct “a reboot and conclusion of one of cinema’s great science fiction tales.” Current rights holder David Ellison—whose company co-financedTerminator Genisys—is involved in the process, “bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively.”
  17. For whatever reason I forced myself to listen to a few tracksand it is terrible.
  18. Chinese Democracy was never an industrial record. I don't hear it. I'm ok with the term electronic rock but there are all kinds of styles, a bit of Queen, some blues riffs and solos more based on Zappa that Joe Perry etc. For the experimental thing, not so much. It's just that Axl pushed the envelope too far with the arrangements,12 strings guitarssub-bass andmellotron music. It's a true departure from the original sound, but thesongs remain simple, typical power chordprogressions.
  19. Never really heard Contraband, is it good?Which songs should I listen? I thought VR albums were full of fillers LA Weekly wrote it was surreal watching Slash playfunkier versions of Chinese and Better.
