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.


SORRY On topic::

With regard to ownership of the name, how will this affect Guns' induction into the RRHOF? The new band can't exactly go and accept the award. Would they have to requalify in 25 years' time for Chinese?
I have lived and breathed Axl Rose's 'new' music every single week of my life since I got a bootleg of Rio 3 in January 2001. That is why I reserve the right in 2012 to be utterly pessimistic, butt-hurt, whiney, disillusioned, disappointed and down-right fucked off. "Basically, to me, it was because I am watching this guy and I don't understand it. I don't get it. I wanted the world to love and respect him. I just watched him throw it away.''Axl on Slash, 2000. Irony.

In hindsight, do you think it was the right decision to take ownership of the name?

This melody inside of me still searches for solution.

Ok, here's a Q on that directly. Do you think, as I do, you deserve the name exclusively? Any regrets?

So...About the ownership of GUNS N ROSES


do you think you have to follow some kind of music style cause of your musical past, or you feel free to experiment some kind of innovative stuff or melting few styles wich goes "against" the musical heritage of GNR?!?!

Ok here goes, Axl did you ever consider creating new music under a different band name or persona?

Or was the name Guns n' Roses something so personal and paramount for you that this option was never in question?

Why did you feel the need to take control of the name Guns N' Roses?

When you first started out on the tour in 91, did you plan to take the name of the band?

During all of the legal issues did you feel like dropping the name GNR just so you could move on(from a legal standpoint)?
I want to say that I believe the name lives and dies with you and the music is unbelieveable. Thank you for what you have given us.

How much of a factor was the legal rights to the band name in getting the album out, and promoting tours, etc?

dont you think the best way of demostrating the ownership of the name (appart from all the legal shit), is playing live and demostrating THIS is fucking GNR? I do. ;)

Having the ownership of the GNR name, does that allow you guys to play anything from the GNR catalogue? Reason why I ask is, because during the 2006 tour people on this board claimed you didn't play a lot of songs of the UYI albums due to legal matters.

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.....
