  1. Doubtful. I honestly believe that the release of Chinese Democracy (and the long road it took to get there) burned Axl out completely in terms of taking actual steps towards finishing and, get this, RELEASING whatever else they have. You'd think having Slash back in the fold would be a 'no brainer' as to getting him to record on those tracks, like, yesterday and putting out a record to support the rest of the touring. But alas, unless they're doing some top secret recording right now it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. A lot of people say that Slash won't stick around if there's no new music. I tend to disagree. He's likely making better money than he's seen since he left the band in 1996, and not only that, he has his "legacy" back now that he's a part of GNR again. Something I'm sure he was missing and resentful to be missing out on these past years. He'll likely stay as long as they keep announcing new tour legs, unfortunately. Unfortunate because he's involvement (or lack therof) could be the key to getting an album sooner than later.
  2. I sure hope so! Haven't heard anything other than rumors though.
  3. I sure wish the people who are currently in Guns N' Roses were allowed to talk about Guns N' Roses.
  4. Same here. And it's a shame because Slash does some really great work on his last 2 solo records, but as soon as Myles starts singing I'm immediately turned off. Basically, he's a poor man's Axl. Hits all the high notes, but with none of Axl's soul, furocity, or stage presence. And I honestly don't know how Slash goes back to that whenever things quiet down with Guns. That is, playing Guns heavy sets with Myles on vocals after they put out another potential album. Just another reason for GNR to put out an album and just keep the big train rolling. Hope Axl understands new music may be the glue that keeps this lineup together for the foreseeable future.
  5. It's a no brainer regarding what *should* be done. They won't though.....God dammit.
  6. Gun to my head, I'd say no. Perhaps guest appearances, but not a full AFD5 reunion tour, at least not this year. Would certainly be cool though!
  7. As lame as it is that we're likely to get an AC/DC album before a Guns album, it's hard to be completely bummed about this. Sounds like Angus is doing the brunt of the writing, perhaps even lyrics too. Could be cool I guess. But damn do I want a GNR album with Slash...
  8. I think that's a healthy attitude to have. And lets not forget how amazing the shows have been up to this point. In my dojo anything more, be it an album or full AFD5 reunion, it will just be even more icing on the cake.
  9. Yeah, it's not exactly something that gives you good feels when you can so clearly see what motivates these guys at the end of the day and after all the tough talk. I think they, especially the big 3, look at Guns N' Roses as their baby and their rightful legacy. Almost like Slash & Duff have been reunited with their estranged kids coming back into the fold like this and reclaiming what's rightfully theirs after all these years. Sure it would probably be nice to take their buddies along for the ride, but not at their own expense. Which I guess I can understand, especially after all these years. And yes, I would not rule out a full reunion of the AFD5 just yet. Part of the "good thing" about corporate rock acts like The Stones, U2 & Metallica is that even they need to re-brand eventually to keep things running. This often comes in the form of a new album...or a full reunion of sorts. Would be awfully cool if the AFD5 did something similar to the Up Close And Personal theater tour to celebrate AFD30. Just spit balling, but there are many possibilities for the future.
  10. You're not wrong. I think a lot of what Slash, and to a lesser extent Duff, said to the media for a good 15 years was more about them simply posturing for the sake of keeping their credibility as relevant musicians in tact. At the time, they needed to justify whatever project (VR, solo, etc.) they were promoting and often came at Axl's expense, tearing down him and his venture to keep GNR running...without them in order to legitimize their efforts. It's one of the reasons we didn't see this reunion until 2016. It was ugly, often unfair...But it made sense for men trying to keep their careers afloat. And yes, it was probably mostly hot air. You have to figure that Slash, in 2005 at the height of VR's fame, went to Axl's house for a reason to make peace when that tour offer was on the table. I think it's fair to say that Slash would have returned to the fold starting in 2001 when he showed up at the House of Blues show and on. So when it became real in 2014/2015 he was obviously all in, probably regardless of the rest of the lineup around him, other than maybe Duff. So I digress, is it a fairytail ending that hardcore GNR fans may have wanted with the AFD5 riding into the sunset together? No, not exactly. But the ride ain't over yet, and I think those throwing tantrums in this thread are cashing in their chips a bit early.
  11. My two cents: Without knowing the details, which none of us do, I can't say this is all that surprising. I'm a little surprised that some people here are seemingly stunned that GNR, one of the biggest rock acts of 2017, would run like a corporation, which presently it very much is. Is it ideal that they aren't particularly motivated to risk their bottom lines (millions) to include their old buddies, whose inclusion wouldn't really affect ticket sales, if at all? No, certainly not ideal from a passionate fan's perspective, and also probably not ideal from said ex-members perspectives. But it is what it is, really. Been that way with Guns since contract negotiations were going on in mid 90s. Hardly anything new, not matter how stung some people are about it. Once bands reach Stones levels of success, contracts must be formed and parterships must be made. Ronnie Wood wasn't given partnership in The Stones until the late 90s. Does it suck that Mick Taylor is reduced to guest appearances, if at all, now that he wants back in? Sure, he helped craft some of their best works on their most famous albums. But it's the nature of this business, love it or hate it. Again, it's just how it goes and it's not always pretty. Hardly something to take some foolish/pointless stand as a fan, as if it matters one iota. An Axl & Slash reunion, not long ago, seemed like an impossibility. It's happened. I understand you love Izzy & Steven too but all this whining kinda reeks of fan entitlement.
  12. I mean...you have to be pretty thick skulled to not understand what DJ was doing with that goofy press release announcing his exit from Guns, especially when you consider the bombshell announced not even 6 months later. He seized the opportunity to both save face, while also grabbing a bunch of headlines. It obviously worked, because DJ Ashba is a household name now.....Said no one ever.
  13. Gene Simmons = BIGGEST CUNT IN ROCK
  14. Obviously not. Ultimately we do not know what this billboard is promoting until we know. Until then, it's called speculation.
