While they were performing, when I saw the picture of the original band behind them(esp with Axl in it), plus I guess with SCOM playing, I cant help but feel bittersweet, and borderline sad. Missed opportunity to have a reunion. Im not gonna whine how Axl should be there, just saying that it could have been something great.

Really make me miss the original lineup more. That said, anyone else felt the same way? Such nostalgic bittersweet feelings during that show?

They did the best with what they had to work with. Steven Adler was brilliant. Axl and Izzy fucked up real bad that night.

yes, they missed a big chance to do something really great for the fans. i'm sure even the fans of the new band would love to have seen axl and slash together again. it could have been a magical night for the music world.

I felt sad but no because THE opportunity of a reunion was missed, actually I felt sad about Axl himself. I mean, that's a recognition that he deserved, and maybe even more than the rest of the guys (I'm not saying that they didn't deserved it) but he wasn't there, he just let the others take all the credit and even play with other singer in the name of Guns N' Roses. That was unfair, very unfair and I felt sad about him.

But in the other hand probably Axl didn't even watched it.

Yeah, in the end, I went from thinking it was alright that he missed it (because really, who of us really expected him to show?), to feeling the same way. It was one night to celebrate what he did with the old guys, possibly even mend some of his friendships or at least put some of the bitterness behind him, and make a ton of people really happy. It was his choice, but it's disappointing.

Isn't this just the whole nature of GNR in general? A missed opportunity. They released two records and vanished They could have been the next Stones.

I was there. Gilby and Miles really saved the day and put together a great performance with Slash, Duff, Steven, and Matt. It was a great experience.

That being said, it was incredibly bittersweet. Seeing the video of the original band play before the performance and the picture behind the guys really made it kind of sad. Its a damn shame Axl and Izzy couldnt just do it for three freaking songs. I understand why Axl didnt, but I was really disappointed in Izzy. A real shame they couldnt both be there, they deserved to.

I found it wrong that a bunch of guys were playing under the banner "guns n roses" with a singer that wasnt Axl. And Guns N' Roses were playin gigs in london.

It is strange as Izzy Stradlin was present at the 20th anniversary concert of Appetite at the Key Club (Izzy and Duff playing with Adler's band. Slash and Gilby in the crowd). So Izzy is not inherenty opposed to these, one-off celebratory reunion type things.

I never felt like the Rock Hall is the final word on a band getting back together. I'm glad that most of them have reconnected in private and some of them have joined each other on stage and in the studio. Just have to let things happen in their own time.

People for the most part have accepted nuGuns, even if they're still hopeful for a reunion. I just see it the way I saw it with Pink Floyd and Van Halen.

If you want to read why reunions fall apart, read Ace Frehley and Peter Criss' books.

You were prob. excited for the GNR portion, but what about the rest of it? I watched it live a few years back on Fuse and it dragged a lot.

As non flippantly as I can say this: at some point you just have to move on and enjoy what each classic lineup member is doing these days.

It wasn't as emotional for me as it was for you OP, but I understand what you're saying.

The biggest emotion I had was essentially that I was very proud of Steven Adler and his progress in dealing with his addictions. And I also think he demonstrated to his detractors that he's still got it, despite the adversity he's faced.

"THEN COME ON NOW LET'S GOOO OOOO OOOO  OOOO OOOO!"

Yeah, I remember I felt the same when "that" picture was showed but anyways, I wasn't expecting Axl to show up and I fully understood why he didn't want to.
