Let's try something. I'll give a topic and lets try and get a few or more of your questions on the subject. I've either read or heard all types of opinions on these and that's not what I'm trying to get at here. What I'd like to try are the questions as straightforward and concise as you can try and make 'em. I'll read them and if possible answer them collectively. I'll do my best to give you what I can and we'll see how it goes. :xmasssanta: So here goes...

The ownership of the name Guns N' Roses.

What do you think about people that say CD should of been a solo album instead of using the name Guns N' Roses ( I don't agree with them of course but...)

And how much has been spent on legal battles over the name/how much do you value the name at?

How do you feel when you read posts that say "this isn't really Guns N' Roses"? Surely it isn't their place to say?

Did you ever consider to drop the name and go on with another one?

Are you guys allowed to play any song from the GNR catalogue? Because in the past I heard that legal matters hinders you to play some of the UYI stuff.

The waveform of Chinese Democracy shows the true meaning of the song: 2 lightsabers...it's all about The Force. This shit beats spinning LP's backwards!!! Axl Rose welcomes YOU into the 21st century.....

Is there still an ongoing truggle for ownership of the name from the ex band members??

I would ask what the catalyst was to originally motivate you to seek ownership of the name?

Looking back, do you still feel it was a good course of action to have taken?

The legal issue's of a band are more tabloid and angry slash fan's thing..im really into chinese democracy right now!!

Id like to know how you get the effect on the chorus of shackler's revenge that give's that reverb'd presence if u get what i mean? , also the string's in this i love , the electronica and synth's in all the song's floating in the background , what keyboard's and equip do u use ? , there really really intresting sound's.

p.s Kudo's on catcher , love the shameless metal riffing in the verse's , its like the beatle's enlisted kirk hammet! , ausum lol.

see ya on tour aroun 2011.


Not what this is for. I'm glad you decided what I'm doing for me. Thanks! What would I do without you!!

Just would rather here your side of the story. Rather than the whole "Axl forced us to sign..otherwise he wouldn't go onstage...we were high..etc" shit we've been fed for years.

Was there ever a point where you thought of releasing Chinese Democracy as a solo album, or do you see this as just as deserving of the Guns name as the old records? (I myself do by the way, just wondering how you feel)

This melody inside of me still searches for solution.

Will the next album be released under the Guns N' Roses name or are you considering a solo album?

Would you ever consider sharing the name with the current band members?

Hi AXL,

Could you tell us more about "there was a time", this is the best song on the album for me, i like the epic atmosphere and your voice is totally awesome at the end of the song. thumbsup
I hope you will play it on the next Tour.
Thanx for your time,

Greetings from Paris, France. smile
(if you need a guide to visit Paris, Eiffel Tower & stuff, tell me ! lol)


Not here or I would've said something like "Hey ask me anything other than what I've originally posted here."
