''When are you guys gonna get back together?'

'Well none of us guys have said we're going to. I wonder if some people - not all - if some people think if we got back together, they'd get their teenage years back? Are they asking us to get back together so that they can get their youth back, even for a minute?'


Maybe he's thinking about the old school fans, but the vast majority who want the reunion NEVER saw the original lineup. Half their old school crowd are the ones buying Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum CDs. Pink is as hard rock as it gets in the soccer mom posse.

You would be first in row for a nugnr reunion with Buckethead, Finck, Brain, etc.



I'd love to see that. I'd love to see any lineup without Slash.


Who are you kidding you would be fighting for tickets just like the rest of us if there was ever a reunion between Slash and Axl........ ;)


As crazy as it sounds I would not. If that ever happens i'll leave this forum forever.

It will happen. Axl will stop thinking about himself for a moment and realise that he needs to do this to give the fans something that they want (or maybe as an excuse to delay a nuGN'R album)


Don't feed the troll :)

Axl isn't like other people...he's very childish, has a very distorted perception of who and what he is, and what he can and can't do, but he's surrounded by so many "yes" people that he feels dignified about how he is...maybe even like it's how he SHOULD be...I mean this in regards to numerous thing, the biggest being owning the GNR name and forcing the other members to sign it over to him back during the UYI tour, making fans wait for hours before concerts, walking off stage or just not showing up/cancelling, etc. Even at Rock in Rio 3, when he motions to that stage worker to come take his shirt, the way he does it is very indicative of his entitlement complex, and his overall character. He is an awesome singer, song writer, performer, etc. but as a person, he is crazy, and very immature. he is a perfect example of someone who had serious emotional/pyscological issues, but was never forced to mature, like 99% of people, because he's had money and fame.
So, unless he has some kind of epiphony, a true GNR reunion will never happen.

more from Duff:

Beyond McKagan's issues with drugs, It's So Easy also focuses on the rocker's musical adventures -- such as his decision, as a teenager, to leave his hometown of Seattle and move to Los Angeles. Of course, shortly after arriving in L.A., he joined Guns N' Roses. Regardless of how the band's original lineup eventually disintegrated, he told ABC News Radio that he was extremely proud of what the group accomplished at its height.

"We achieved what I'd hoped when I left Seattle," he explained. "The chemistry was ridiculous. And, we had the best everybody in our band. The best singer. Izzy [Stradlin] -- the best rhythm guitar-player/singer guy, songwriter guy. Slash -- I mean, c'mon. At 19, he played like an old blues guy, but ferocious. And Steven [Adler], with that groove he created. And, as a band, it was real and it was all of those things. And, it was a little piece of this and a little piece of that, and it all fit together."

The powers that be behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were similarly enthusiastic about Guns, choosing to nominate the group in its first year of eligibility. McKagan, however, seemed a bit reticent to comment about the band's possible induction.

"There's nothing really yet to say, except that I'm grateful to our fans," he maintained. "I don't know anything about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I know some of the bands that are in there, and to be mentioned in that same…breath is dumb…And, I see people are really passionate about this thing -- people that have followed our band for a long time. And if they're passionate about it, then I'm not going to be unpassionate about it."

He also was apprehensive to speculate about what might happen if GN'R was to be inducted, perhaps taking into account the fractured relations between some of the band members.

"Honestly, I have no idea what's going to happen," he said. "I hope we can achieve some grace, if and when it ever happens."

This is such a weird thing to think, the part about Axl being selfish for not doing a reunion. Doing a reunion would mean a whole new life for him, a full time chore and at the same time dealing people and emotions he left behind for different reasons. For the fan it would be... good entertainment. Is it selfish not to change your whole life and dedicate it to something you rather wouldn't for the sake of other people's wish for entertainment? Also seeing as Axl actually has had emotional/mental issues throughout his life, going back to this would maybe be really hard for him emotionally. The selfish person here is the fan demanding this for his own entertainment wishes.

That said, I would love a reunion.

Your hate for Slash just completely baffles me.... I dunno... I just honestly don't get why you hate the guy so much. No, I don't think you are a troll and you do make good points and good posts, but it seems that any of your posts regarding Slash takes all of that and throws it out the window. He did contribute a hell of a lot to the band musically that laid down the foundation for any lineup from 1985 to present day. Not liking his playing is one thing, but denying that (specifically the posts you made referring to Tracii Guns) is just silly IMO

I'd love to be a fly on the wall IF anyone could ever get Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven/Matt in same room. Alone...no "advisors" or lawyers or "yes men". Would be damn interesting. Duff and Axl had the "by coincidence" meeting in London last year, wonder what would happen if Axl & Slash ever met in an elevator etc....alone? Take away Beta, take away lawyers, take away "advisors"....be damn interesting.
Sail away sweet sister...sail across the sea...maybe you'll find someone who'll love you half as much as me...

Understanding Axl's mental condition would be key to achieving that. I don't think he's bipolar, I think its something else. See what you think of this..

http://en.wikipedia....nality_disorder

Just my laymans diagnosis

I thinks he's afraid of rejection by Slash more than anything else. Fits with the child abuse and abandonment he claims to have suffered during his childhood.

you may find some of his lyrics or should I say lyrical themes woven through the above article. Locomotive with its references to illusions and loneliness, November Rain with references to time spent alone. Others are there if you look.

Some deep stuff in there...wow. Beyond my comprehension. I think it's clear he's effed up in the head to some degree. Too bad after all the years, all the Dr.'s, all the lawyers, all the "friends" noone has found the proper treatment/counseling for him. And you may be right, Axl's scared of rejection from Slash....I'm guessing after 15 minutes of awkwardness & tears they'd be back.

I don't like Duff's comment at all. Besides Axl and the usual suspects on the forums, everyone wants to see Axl,Slash,Duff and Izzy on stage together again.
I think Duff's Wall Street success has gone to his head.

Actually most of us just like GNR and would love to hear more music like they used to make. They also put on a great show too. I never saw the original GNR live so that would be something special too.

Clarification- would a one off at HOF count towards you leaving forum forever? LOL
And what exactly is your problem with Slash? He was a key figure in some of the best music of all time. You do realize he's on AFD, UYI's, Lies etc.... right?

+1. I can understand you not liking or agreeing with things slash has done post-gnr, but I don't get where this burning hot passionate hatred comes from. Look at all the man contributed to the band you claim to love. Not a diss to the nu band, but 75-80% of the guitar work the nu band plays live are parts that SLASH contributed. I don't understand why you can't at least respect the man for that..it's cool if he's not your cup of tea now, but I'll truly never understand how any gnr fan can hate the man with sucha passion.



yeah I'm really not trying to troll you when asking, Volcano. I love the current line up and every lineup from appetite to chinese. Ive seen this band twice, bought ChiDem many times for whatever reasons, follow this forum, and show as much support for the guys as i can- so i do consider myself a pretty good fan of this lineup. That being said, I have no problem seeing so many people here complain about the name "GnR" being used. The original lineup with Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, and Steven (and to an extent Matt and Dizzy) simply is not the same band that has been on stage since 2001. Bumble, DJ, and Richard did not write any of the classic material that has made the band so famous nor were they there in the early days when the original guys went through hell together. Regardless of where they all are now or how Axl feels about Slash, that has no impact on what Slash (or the others) have contributed to what was also their band (Axl's band too for that matter).

So sure, the current lineup is legally called "GnR," and even I, refer to them as "Guns N Roses," but I can recognize it is not the same band that started all this. Regardless, Axl has a right to play the music he helped write and perform on just as much as Slash and co. He happened to surround himself with kickass musicians and make a great sounding live act. I wish he'd jump on that more and produce more material, as I do think ChiDem is a fantastic album, but that's just how Axl works.

Anyways, that's my point of view on it. I love what we have now, but also love a lot of what Slash has done outside of Guns N Roses, including his solo album and VR. I've seen both him and GNR in the past two years and would love to see both again. After all, the two GNR shows I saw in 2010 and 2011 respectively were the best gigs I've been to, and I've seen a ton of great acts. I was fortunate enough to get tickets to the induction in April and as much as I love the members former or current from 99- now, I recognize it is the classic band being inducted, and I believe that is the right decission. Regardless though, It's possible to be a fan of Axl and Slash, and I guess it's just sad/annoying to see so many people on here choosing sides of people they don't even really know on a personal level. In the end, we're all here because of GNR, so why bother campaigning against Axl or Slash?

Long post and I'm sorry =P, just wanted to share my views on what is GNR, good day!
