Not sure how he missed that one if that's the case.

another great interview!!
keep em coming..

Vicky confirms that it was basically over when IZZY (mr.cool)left.
that's what I always said, even though I enjoyed the Illusions band.
my two favourite songs are off the illusions but AFD is for me the realest,realest Guns.
I grew up with AFD and it holds a special place in my heart.

Duff says in his book that Izzy was the most important creative force in the band.
Vicky confirms it.

Exactly. It's not as if they carried on reeling off new material after his departure. Izzy had the fantastic Ju Ju Hounds record out by 1992 while GNR were still fumbling around with a covers record that in parts had been mooted before UYI was even released.

Vicky:...there was just so much magic and brilliance in that original lineup. Those five guys together were the magic ingredient. Itís hardÖ..itís hard to really describe what that band was like but it was amazing and it was pure magic. Noone can take that away from them. I went to go see Axlís hired guns at the Forum this January. All those guys in Axlís band are technically great musicians but that magic and fire is gone, itís justÖ.dead and gone. There was no fire. Itís not what GNR was when they were young and living. That was like real life to them, those songs were their lives, it wasnít just a bunch of good musicians playing a show, it was REAL. Itís those five guys or nothing...

But if a kid goes to a New Guns show has his spiritual experience can we really take that away from them say it isn't real.

We just don't want the kids to get confused that they actually saw GNR. It's a cover of a cover band folks!

We are all just indoctrinated into the myth of romantic rock n roll. Live fast, die young. All the magazines and labels pump that stuff out. So yes AFD is the perfect incarnation of that mindset. But there are other kinds of music that are just as valid if not more. and not all are so tied up in the authenticity. It's just music, not necessarily a philosophy of life. I totally understand how it can mean something to people in that way. As I do it myself but then somehow I escape or move on to another artist and you see it's an illusion. No doubt the AFD era is an alluring exciting illusion but to take it so far as to say it's somekind of one true undeniable answer is a bit much.

I think if it's a great show, it really doesn't matter what name's on the marquee.

Indeed. And that's why we aren't so ignorant or stupid to claim that one particular lineup from a band that has gone through many lineup changes, represent the one and only true version of that band.

In my opinion, one of the great things with Guns N' Roses is the fact that the band has survived through so many changes. Adapt or die. Each incarnation may not be as great to me personally. but I'd much rather this great band existed than that it's just up and die when it faced the first problems.

Guns N' Roses anno 2012 is just as real as Guns N' Roses anno 1988. It's not the same, because band members have changed, the musical expression has evolved (albeit still typical GN'R), the look has changed, and so on, but it is still the same band. And the fact that the new music creates new fans, tells me the band is still relevant. To take anything away from people who like a particular lineup, whether it is the AFD or the 2001 lineup, by claiming that that is not the "real Guns N' Roses" is just silly and suggest one is either weak in the head or hasn't thought things through by realizing that many bands go through changes, some ever more drastic than GN'R's, and that one's own feelings of what the real band is may not be universally shared.

Taking things too seriously since 1988. -- I wonder how it is to be an agnostic, dyslexic insomniac, lying awake at night wondering if there really is a dog. -- NEVER EXPECT, ALWAYS HOPE.
