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.
Yeah, I love the new band. I love Ashba(no homo) for his stage presence. But that night was supposed to be for the classic GNR and the fans. I guess that night, seeing those old videos and the big pic of the old band is really what made me sad about it.
And youre right, Adler seems very happy! Im happy for him.
