--Where is all the psychoanalysis why the other founding member (Axl and Izzy started band), and the other key songwriter is not attending?

--Why aren't folks blaming Izzy for skipping the event? If he isn't there, and Axl was, it still wouldn't have been a "reunion" that everyone is so upset at Axl about.

--Amazing to me, and it speaks volumes, that the two guys who started the band and wrote the majority of material aren't going to be there?

--So is Slash really showing up for the fans---or is it about another chance to draw media attention? Who knows, I certainly don't, but I find it funny that Izzy and Axl certainly don't feel this is an event they need to attend to justify their careers.

- axl is just being axl, he's an asshole. he can't do it for the fans, can't put all this media sucks, corporate bullshit aside for one night... etc

lame.

Correct. Axl is the lightening rod....he was/is GnR. He & Slash. Noone (the general masses) really cared about the others. We here all know Izzy (Duff & Steven) but most folks who think Guns N Roses and SCOM or Jungle don't have a clue of the names other than Axl & Slash.

The truth is, the only people that care about Izzy are the ones who know that Izzy was the brains behind the music of Appetite for Destruction. No Izzy, no Appetite.

Or he could be like Axl who doesn't show and promotes his new tour via open letter to the media.

i guess only axl fans think that being in the media and promoting your music is selling out.

Do you think all the PR Axl has received the last few days will hurt future album sales? ;).

General Public has no idea who Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, Dizzy Reed, Matt Sorum, Duff McKagan, Gilby Clarke or any nuGnR member (besides Axl) is. That's why the general media doesn't give a shit about Izzy not going. :shrugs:

You guys are redic. If axl were to show, izzy wouldn't b the one to ruin it for the fans. But if axl isn't going why would izzy? Knowing his history I mean. I honestly think if izzy believed axl was going to get along with slash for a few songs without any crazy bullshit, he wouldn't deprive us of a three song reunion set.

I was honestly upset more when I first heard Izzy wasn't going than when I heard about Axl.

Axl and Slash are the main cats. It's like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards or Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. But on such a level that if Slash were to re-join GnR (just fictional thinking) as it is today (replacing Ashba or Ron), the general public wouldn't mind not having the original members. That's how important Slash and Axl are to GnR, especially in the eyes of the general public.
