Does anybody else think that New GNR without Bucket was kind of like Maverick without Goose or Mickey without Minnie for Axl?

I think the label probably weren't ever going to release CD, until that Best Buy deal came through. But maybe Bucket's CD was rejected by the label, before RTB came in.

I sort of think Axl messed up by allowing Robin back in the band after Bucket joined. It should have just been the Axl and Bucket show.

Buckethead was NuGNR. When he left most of the credibility went out the door.

I have a hard time thinking of Bucket as being the most important new member after Slash left because if Robin didn't rejoin NIN, Bucket would have never been in the band.

Sometimes I wonder if Axl would have even tried making this a real band if Bucket and Robin had stayed.

as good as he was, he did not suit GNR. he was fuckin weird and his guitar playing was to technical and video game/industrial for gnr.

I agree with some things u say, but,

Imagine parts of this in a GnR song... god... that would be amazing... or even add some Axl vocals to this... :shocked:

WOW... that track is beautiful. :thumbsup: ...however, I agree with those who say Buckethead didn't fit in GnR. Sry.

If you listen to the songs closely you'll notice that the songs nowadays are even more different now than how they sounded in 2002. New intros, solos, improvs, outros... I'd prove it showing how each song has its own distinct identity nowadays but whatever, wouldnt make a difference because in the end the truth to most users over here is what they want to believe in and not the actual truth. Nightrain, Jungle, Brownstone, NR, PC, YCBM, RQ, LALD, KOHD...they all sound a lot different now and even more distinct. The cover band argument is retarded. Oh, and the funniest part is "they are a cover band now...the 2002 band was moving forward". How? First of all most of the band is still here, and back in 2002 they were not playing a single song that they wrote. None. Zero. They were a cover band playing other people's songs as much as this band, but yes, lets keep the retarded and baseless arguments. The band members that got to play songs they wrote were Chris, Dizzy, Tommy and Robin in 2006/2007 with better. Other than that Brain and Bucket never, ever played a song they wrote in Guns. So enough with the stupid "cover band" arguments and the double - and hypocrite - standarts.

Fuckin' LOL. Do you know what "cover" means?

It seems that giving him his original name back has overclocked his pointless thread processor.

So.

First.....what is with the hostility and anger? Why do you have to insult people and their beliefs? Isn't this a GnR forum? A place that should be open for all to partake in an intelligent discussion regarding GnR.

And you do realize that most adults stop using the term retard as an insult about the same time they stopped using the word gay as an insult, right?

So, from your post......everybody who doesn't worship Axl is wrong, anybody who disagrees with you is wrong (and retarded, and lying to themselves)......and you could easily prove it.......but decide not to, and just insult them?

I suppose I could respond the same way, but instead I will just address actual facts, and will show some respect for other people.

A band is a band. End of story. Even if u didn't write anything, even if u have been there for three days. A band is whomever is in it.

That band can also be labeled other things.

Cover band appropriately describes the band. As does touring band.

Here are facts, not opinions, concerning their concerts.

Appetite songs.......7 out of 8 members had nothing to do with it.

Lies.....7 out of 8 had nothing to do with it.

Illusions......6.5 out of 8 had nothing to do with it. I guessing about Dizzy, I don't recall how many writing credits he had.

CD.......3 out of 8 had nothing to do with writing the songs. Almost half the band didn't even write the last album.

So besides Axl, nobody in the band had a roll in writing/creating 80% of the music this band plays every night. And almost half the band didn't have a part in creating 100% of the songs they play every night.

(If my numbers are off its because of Dizzy and the different drummers on CD). But you get the point.

Bruno, taking away your Axl worship and looking at those facts......you honestly do not think that cover band and touring band aren't valid descriptions?

I think u get hung up on those being negative terms. But like I've said a thousand times, they are one of the best touring bands I've ever seen live. And they are a great cover band, as they kick ass playing other people's songs. Axl did a great job putting this current group together.

But until they start playing more songs that THEY created, and their shows aren't a majority of songs that almost the entire band had nothing to do with creating......then they are a cover and touring band.

It isn't an insult. It is a fact.

I'm talking about the current band and the Bucket/Finck era band, not about Axl at all. I'm talking about double standarts, people that say they were moving forward ten years ago because they were a different band and now they are a cover band because they're like the old band... (I mean, is that even a serious argument? Doubt it). You simply don't know what to say, but you do so because you want to be annoying, you have no idea of what you're talking about and you simply can't comprehend most of our posts so you keep on quoting them and taking everything out of the original context so it'd fit your own agenda. Seriously, you have no idea of what you're trying to say, you don't understand a thing, you're always running into circles mentioning your own useless words describing people that don't agree with your deluded view of the band.

I did not mention Axl, I'm not "worshipping" him. Stop that already, take time to actually read our posts and at least try to understand them - I know it's too much for you, but at least try. It ain't hard, you just have to read carefully.
