I'll tell you why: listen to TWAT played by Finck and then listen to TWAT played by Ashba.

And I wouldn't say hate... It's just not good enough for GNR. It's sad because GNR has always had great guitar players.

DJ Ashba reminds most people of Slash's style and for that reason alone he's either hated or loved - simple. The fact that Axl seems to love the guy and interacts a lot with him on stage even irritates people further...

Old-timer Gn'R fan since '88...

I don't hate DJ Ashba at all. I don't agree with his fashion sense but fuck that, it doesn't matter. People that hate him 'cause of that should shut the fuck up or just come out of the closet. I don't think he butchers any of Robin's solos, as Robin did the exact same thing pretty well, I think he has amazing stage presence and treats his fans BETTER THAN ANY GNR MEMBER EVER HAS. What gets to me is his cheesy attitude on twitter and facebook, trying to be cool and rock n' roll. It sucks. That broken vase pic he posted once was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen since some of Steven's stuff. If DJ quit trying so hard to be rock n' roll, he'd be the right fit for GnR. And NO, you don't know how his (unlikely but) possible future contributions to GnR are gonna be like, so STFU.

He's also everything terrible about Los Angeles wrapped up in Hot Topic gift paper.

DJ has been getting better, so expect the hate from haters.

GAURAV N - "I had thought I’d mind the fact that ‘Slash’ was missing. But DJ Ashba totally rocked it. It was a mesmerising evening!”

I don't hate him, I dislike him. Just the same as when he goes by Slash. :shrugs:

Why do you hate DJ?

"He tries to be cool" "His whole image looks too put together" "The way he talks to the fans"

Why do you hate Axl?

"It seems like he's not trying anymore" "He looks like shit" "The way he doesn't talk to the fans"

At least Axl is honest about being a lazy cunt. DJ is as fake as silicone tits.

Some people are legitimately annoyed by the Ashba-swag plugs, etc.- which I guess I get- but whatever this is supposed to be America. I think what you wrote though comes closest to the mark.

Dj's Axl's first true "wing-man" post-Slash (and not some dork playing with Star Wars toys or listening to KISS records in his basement or whatever) and it's got some folks feeling uncomfortable IMHO. Meanwhile- as far as being a "terrible" player- though by no means the "best technical guitarist" Guns has ever had- he's more than adequate and has tremendous stage presence IMHO. Been to two shows in the las year or so- and both times the people I went with (not hardcore Guns fans, but fans of the hits, etc.) came away raving about Dj and still ask me what's up with him and when the new album's coming out, etc. Quite different than watching Finck (who I fucking loved) getting booed quite heartily back in the day. Actually, as a long-time FInck supporter- the "revisionist" history of his tenure- to now where he was a beloved core member whose solos Dj is "butchering" or whatever is quite comical...
Dizzy Reed: "You know what, Axl is a lot more fun at 5 a.m. than he is at 5 p.m. Let's put it that way."

Not a good analogy. Silicone tits rule.

I think DJ is a great addition to the band. Much better than Fink. I'm really pleased with GNR since 2009.
