Are they moving forward?


Falsely promising the release of material that was completed over a decade ago does not = moving forward


agreed. promises made. not much results

They are going AMAZING!


Sarcasm or insanity? :confused:


Neither, it's my point of view. Problem?

What are you, some kind of GNR nazi? Telling people what and what not to like... Kinda lame...

P.S. Why does it bother you so much that I have a differing opinion?

I'd say they're headed in the right direction as compared to the dark ages of '03-'06.


Yes, those were some bad times to be a fan. But there was still an air of genuine hopefulness. There's definitely a different vibe going on now, and it just doesn't feel all that positive at the moment. The tour will be ending soon, and then...well...I guess we'll just wait and see.

If the band is moving forward then they sure as hell are taking baby steps. So IMO things are going better than they were in the "dark ages" but that wasn't a high benchmark to pass anyway. At least the shows are going good and there have been at least some set changes (even though I personally would like to see more, but that is for a different debate)

I'm content. I got to see them live twice. We'll get new music when the time is right and when Axl is ready. If he wants to continue t tour, then that's cool too. I have you lovely folks to keep me company while I patiently wait. :wub:

I'm shocked at how somebody can call themselves a fan of a band, and then say things are "fantastic" with that band, when they have put out 1 album in the last 15 years.

I wish Axl was a musician who enjoyed releasing music for his fans to enjoy. At this stage in his career, he seems only interested in being a touring band, making a living off of playing old songs. I wish he still had that fire and desire to create new music/magic - and not just live off the past. I don't know if it is an age thing, or if he just got burnt out on creatiing music. Maybe his song writing flame has been completely blown out.

And I'm so sick of this "oh, many bands spend 5-6 years between albums" nonsense. Who cares what other bands do. As a fan, wouldn't you want to hear new music from your favorite band more than once a decade?

I've mentioned this before in other threads recently. And I'm not talking about quality of music. I'm talking about FANS of a specific band. Two bands that are similar, actiually BIGGER, in the music world than GnR. Bands who started in the 80s.
One of them put out FIVE albums from 2000-2010 for their fans to enjoy.
One of them released 9 albums between 1996-2012 for their fans to enjoy.
Axl has put out one album.

If you are a fan of Axl's music, how is this a good thing in your eyes?

I'm not a teenager, so I don't really care about websites and new t-shirts, new posters, new pictures of the band. Don't you have to pay to be a member of the band's website's forum? What does that get you - unreleased music before anybody else hears it? No? Oh, never mind then.

Axl is my favorite rock singer of all time.
But I sure do miss the Axl from 1987-1993 who enjoyed putting out music for his fans to enjoy.

And it is just crazy if you think about. People have said - even I think Axl - that there are a couple of more albums worth of material from the CD sessions, including "heavyweight" songs, songs better than most of the CD songs..........the new band is dying to write, and some of the band members have already wrote songs and submitted them to Axl.................this band should be figuring out a time schedule to release ALL this music.

Releasing all this music would help put forth the negative energy in the rock world concering Axl keeping the name GnR. New music would end all the hired hands, cover band labels. Let these guys stand on their own!!!!

But instead of trying to get these, let's say 3 albums worth of music out for their fans, it's been 4 years since the last album with no mention of a new album coming out soon. Why in the world do you need to wait 8 years between albums, if you have 3 albums of quality music just sitting in your studio library???????
