  1. Can't really disagree with this and I'm almost sure Axl himself (by now) realizes if there is a weakness in CD, it's the overproduction/too many layers in many of the songs.
  2. Poll: Angus Young vs. Slash

    Anyway, on a serious note, Axl/DC was cool and it was great to see Axl shut up the naysayers but the reunion is something on another level for me and just about any GN'R fan.
  3. Wow. And they are not even counting the Vegas and Coachella shows in the 116 million gross number.
  4. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    I think there were a few primary factors that drove this reunion to happen....their legacy/reputation in rock n' roll history, etc (The band's legacy and each of their own, individual legacies) and of course money. In which order? I don't know....I'd like to think it's about a tie but only they could tell you how they feel about it all. And there is nothing wrong with that. If they are capable of grossing hundreds of millions of dollars on a world tour then why would anyone criticize it as being a "cash grab"? NEWSFLASH: Every tour is a "cash grab" for bands, it's how they make their money....lol.
  5. Nice! The Bad Obsession one is among the best, imo. The rest of them fit the songs well...other than the first one.... I'm not "getting" the first one....I would have went with something a little "rougher" looking, being the song is about a feud with a crazy neighbor....and save that cool pic of Axl for one of the ballads.....just my 2 cents. Otherwise, great job!
  6. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    I believe he was supposedly spotted at the hotel before the Nashville show....along with the rest of the band. He supposedly seemed to be frustrated with Steven and was talking to Duff a lot. Which now, would make a lot of sense, if true...lol. Duff handles most of the business side of things within the band so it's plausible. At the time we thought that the girl that spotted them had mistaken Fortus as being Izzy...but looks like she may have been right. AND the Nashville show is when Axl made that comment to the fan that was holding up the "Where's Izzy" sign....and later, security took it away. This is some CSI: MYGNR shit right here....
  7. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    As much at it had to do with him "trying to get clean" it had to do with him not enjoying touring anymore once he was clean. I believe he said something along the lines of "is this all there is?" in reference to playing live/touring, once he was clean. Basically, he enjoyed the rock star lifestyle and playing live when he partied but became quickly bored/tired of it once he sobered up. That's what I got out of it, anyway.
  8. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    I think it's a moot point debating this. We don't know the details of what happened in terms of the business aspect. Izzy is saying they "wouldn't split the loot equally". We still don't know the exact details of even what he means by that. Does he want the exact % of what the other guys are getting? Even for just a few guest spots? Does he want equal involvement? From Guns standpoint, they may have offered him guest spots like Adler is getting....maybe something like $50k per night for 2 songs. And hypothetically, if the big 3 were getting $500k a show each...that would average out to $20k per song in a 25 song show....so in that particular scenario, Izzy would actually be getting paid MORE per song than the other guys. This is all hypothetical... And I'm just trying to show that we have no idea what really went on behind the scenes and to take either side/debating this at this point, as fans makes no sense...we don't have enough information to do so.
  9. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    In reference to people thinking that all the expenses of the tour come out of the $3,million the band gets.... I don't think it works that way for tours of this magnitude. Pretty sure the production expenses are taken out of the gross from the concert, not the band's cut. At least that's how Billboard reported it. Basically, if they get $5 million gross per show, $3 million goes to the band, $1.5 million for production and $500k to the promoter. So the transportation, trucks, stage setups, road crew, etc would all be considered production costs. So out of the $3 million the band gets, they would pay for the other members of the band and their personal expenses...the rest goes to the big 3...however which way they agreed to split it.
  10. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    Probably. And all his previous tweets were ok...and they were somewhat doing the trick. This last tweet crossed the line, imo and I'm just about sure he shot himself in the foot with it because if history has shown anything about these guys is that they don't want their laundry out in the media. I'm 99% sure we won't be seeing Izzy involved with GN'R anytime soon...maybe ever.
  11. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    Before this tweet, I would agree with you....but after this, it will be a long time....if ever. This tour is still a somewhat sensitive situation. There is a reason most of the band has said next to nothing about it other than recently....because this is exactly what they wanted to avoid - any sort of media fueled controversy. The irony is that they finally have an interview to make fans happy and within days of it, the first major controversy the band has had in years emerges. Not only will we not see Izzy anytime soon, I can pretty much guarantee any real (other than small talk) interviews are over.
  12. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    Sucks for fans because after this, there is little to no chance we see Izzy on stage with them anytime soon. Sounds like Izzy is nowhere near pleased with them....and him putting them on blast on social media is the absolute nail in the coffin in terms of him being a part of this. No way they jeopardize having drama at this point in the tour. We will be lucky if they ever make amends after this. I hope I'm wrong...but I doubt it.
  13. Yeah I totally agree. Even when CD was released, people were already using digital downloads and no one was buying records. But they sold plenty of CD's and records of that album. If there was a weak point of the interview...that was it. The interviewer clearly was at least somewhat out of touch with this band's fanbase. Of course GN'R fans will buy the CD and record...and Duff somewhat alluded to that with the Jett reference.
