GNR is as "fresh in everyone's minds" now then it was in 2004. Greatest Hits just hit number 3. People in the US don't care about Axl's nu guns, not the Guns N Roses they knew. Even outside the US I don't think people are dying for new "nu" material. And I still constantly hear Slither and Fall To Pieces constantly on my local rock stations, damn near eight years later. That's significant.


No it's not, radio stations are big piles of crap, you only hear the shittiest songs from the most shittiest bands in the world like Lady Gaga & Nirvana. It's not significant at all.

I live outside of the US, and I love every single piece of Chinese Democracy and I'm dying to hear the rest of it.

Some folks think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness, some fools fool themselves I guess, but they're not fooling me.
I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true, love is a just a lie, made to make you blue.

Love hurts.

From what I've heard of Steven's new album, it actually is pretty good. His drumming still sounds great and I've always loved his drum sound. I hate how I have to enjoy the sounds of the elements of original Gn'R separately, because the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts, but at least they still all make music and are alive. I do like Steven's new music.


I have NEVER thought Steven was a bad drummer, it's just just that perhaps he should "shut up" and drum IMO


I bet no one is going to give a shit about his album except for hardcores.

The only significant (meaning music people who weren't hardcores gave a shit about) pieces of music that ever came out of any post gnr project were Slither and Fall to Pieces off Contraband. Other than that, outside these forums, nobody gives a shit about post 1993 material. Sad but true.


That was back when GN'R was fresh in everyone's minds, back when the music was relevant. Nobody gives a shit anymore, not in the U.S. at least.

Number 3? Where?

Guns N' Roses' "Greatest Hits" makes an eye-popping jump from No. 31 to No. 3 after it was priced for 25-cents in both the Google Play and AmazonMP3 stores for one day last week. It sold 85,000 with a 618% gain (up from 12,000 the week previous).

Well yeah, people want to hear old music, I was taking about new music. Chinese Democacy would have been more receptive in 2002 than it was in 2008 when hardcores and hipsters who secretly love GN'R were the ones who bought it.

Well you guys are always complaining about how boring it is in GnR land. Well Steve's decided to go through his "Slash phase" and do some old fashioned trashtalking about Axl in the press. I still wonder though, if he's just angry, because what Axl's really doing to him is denying him money.

One thing's for sure, it's gonna be one helluva induction ceremony.

I don't understand how he can even kind of expect them to perform when he keeps talking shit.

I think it's pretty obvious he got the memo that the reunion performance was a no-go, and that's why he's initiated this little crusade.

Jesus. This is gonna make the Van Halen fiasco look like a family reunion. I'll be glad when this mess is over. I wish Steven would show up high and not be allowed into the building, or at least get kicked out. Dumb fuck. If I were Axl, or anyone else for that matter, I'd want to stay as far away from that failure as possible. If they ever did perform, he'd probably off himself after they'd choose Sorum over him...

Come on people. He didn't say "My album is better than Chinese Democracy". The journalist asked if it was better and he simply said "Of course it is!". Would have made a lot of difference if it was: "Of course it is! [Laughs]" which we don't know. :shrugs:

I think he totally fucked up when he said the thing about Axl and his hacks, but this one? I don't buy it.

Agreed on this. I didn't read the interview because I don't really care, and Gn'R is not of enough vital importance to educate myself well before spouting my own worthless opinion on a forum. But in context this is even less of a big deal than I thought it was before.

The positive side of being an Axl Rose fan:

It's relatively inexpensive, does not require repeated trips to the record store.

Oh shit, you're totally right. For some reason and because I suck at reading I missed that part (or didn't take it in consideration). My bad.
