  1. For me the end of Ain't it Fun when he's creating a hurricane/sand storm howl...🦁...🌪 Ffff insane
  2. Ok so they hit the height in late 93 but within 2 years (or a year) it was over. The "don't wanna miss a thing" was not considered cool but then again I was a late teen by then so maybe they were "hip" 😜 By the new generation of Tweens coming of age. By then my generation saw them as sellout just like the 70s generation saw their 80s revival as selling out (cheesy videos/walk this way). So I guess it depends what was in vogue when you're 12-15. (Personally I like aero early stuff and their cheesy 80s and Alicia Silverstone stuff)
  3. great topic btw... growing up as a 90's teen I agree...Grunge was popular but only for 5 years max..but it was more of a "social" maybe even fashion movement...very different from what was going on. GNR during that time weren't seen as "cool" anymore (think 1994 and onwards) but at the same time they weren't really active...but other "rock" bands weren't popular during the 90's either (Motley Crew, ok Aeorosmith were dying out by then too...they hit it big around 1992 or so but that's really it...oh Alicia Silverstone vids lol)...by 1996 gunge was dead and I think more Oasis was coming up around that time...new metal was more later in the 1990's if I recall... but the real winner after grunge was Rap unfortunately...oh Lordie...can't stand the bubblegum rap nowadays... I think the OP is correct...if they wanted to "sell out" they would've done it when the pressure was on...in 2004 and during the Rock n' Roll hall of Fame.
  4. exactly, M Manson is "shtick"...a characature/an act...could that be a phony/poser?... Axl was real...flawed...yes he wasn't certain in his convictions...he said what he meant at the time (e.g. OIM) and then maybe regretted it/didn't want to be seen as a bad guy/handlers told him to make nice. Why did he include Manson's song at the end of TSI?...sure he wanted to raise controversy...just like most pop figures back then (Madonna, Prince, hell even Nirvana who were anti-establishment...their videos/album covers were controversial at the time)...
  5. naw no way he used a straightner. when his hair was WET (in the 90's) it was PIN straight with not a touch of wave/frizz (I have curly hair so at the slightist droplet of water...poof!)...unless of course he chemically straightend his hair or something but unsure how well that process works and we never saw any roots that appeared wavy. I know I read somewhere he used to tint his eyelashes (or eyebrows)? since he has light hair. Nothing wrong with that... My theroy (altho' unpopular I'm sure) is that he may have had some hair transplant (the middle-stages being when he did the corn row). OR some hormone-influenced thing (like mid age that may affect hair texture...it happens to women...not too sure if this happens to men)...Trust me, I'd love to think he had perfect full head of natural hair...but...I'm suspicious (he always had thin hair).
  6. yeah I'll be coming in on Sat ...and yes we need to save our energy
  7. if you're in the FB group #GnFnR Fanspot #NotInThisLifeTime they are planning one but on FRIDAY the night before the concert...but not that I heard of that day...
  8. Funny you're getting some disagreements for this comment. But I have to sort of agree. I don't entirely understand why this particular show was released to video? Thank goodness I catched the Paris pay per view show (friends older brother recorded it). But I think I watched the Tokyo show twice or so only. For me "making of the videos" made me a GNR addict so thank goodness for those 👩🏻‍🎤👩🏻‍🎤
  9. and I've seen Steven live a few years back and I swear that he LIP SYNC'd to TWO songs!! I am good at catching this. Part of me was upset but the other part was like, 'meh, he's an old goat and he needs a break"...what can you do? he's still strutting around (and he recovered that night in Toronto after Joe threw him off the catwalk stage!!)... I agree...go to a concert and enjoy...and if you can't that's a shame on your part
  10. this era (and little concert) was his prime (for me)...freakin nice abds, aggression, little tanned...daaaaamn... oh and I like others thought I'd marry Axl...but when I met him (invited to his after party at Soho house)...I was upset when he didn't propose lol
  11. I agree...all this analysis and nit-picking is oh so rock n roll...gimmie a break...I'm into going to the live shows and enjoying the moment. I rarely watch any of the live vids...even when I was a pre-teen w/ the Live in Tokyo vids I rarely watched. Most older artists are not going to sound like they used to (Mariah Carey for eg) ...it's the most difficult instrument to preserve w/ time. I do agree that Axl should've taken more responsibility w/ his gift and not smoke and work out more...but in the end I too am grateful they're all alive!! that's a miracle in itself. Sorry if I sugarcoat it and am positive but I guess I'm enjoying the moment!
  12. Selling one ticket: zone 1 (right behind pit). It's all general admission. Selling $30 less than paid for; hard copy ticket $200
  13. ya AC DC Brian is pure screams, and why Axl's said it could damage his/other voices (it's trickier in a sense)... also on the Chiniese E/X interview didn't he mention that he wanted to sound "clearer" on CD/future? something like that right? either way I think he sounds incredible...always has always will...but to tell you the truth I don't watch him live much on youtube (and analyze)...I rather listen to him in the flesh...it's addictive
  14. you can't even over analyze every word she said b/c she used words like "lit" and "insanely dope", "super dope", "super super rad", "and...yeaahh"... Like I said, I am a music fan overall...from classic rock to mowtown to bubblegum pop...but if I were an artist I would create what I love best (rock). Sure you could "dabble" in other genres but you would be faking it (as often it's a LIFESTYLE) or you'd be expiermenting...so which one is it?
  15. I'm really disappointed in this video of her...as a 30 year old woman myself I am confused...how old is she (it's not easily found when I tried google). If infact shes older than 22 why is she talking like an....airhead? secondly she's a fan of urban music? another dissapointment (I mean I like pop/rap at times but def' a rocker over here)... I am also upset because I was into her as she was a woman and thought that was a cool move...I loved the fact that GNR included a woman...I'm pro woman/feminist...but ugh...not her... if she is the equivalent of Teddy/Chris/Tracey/Roberta...then DON'T include her in the band...just as a backup component...I have this same opinion as Dizzy...it's embarrasing/circus
