Calling all snake dance crew !

27 posts in this topic

Just a light hearted thread while we wait for some actual news.

A couple of questions for you.

1.) What is the ultimate, best snake-dance clip from all the LIVE footage we have of GnR era 85-93? - Personally I think we reached 'peak snake' around 87-89, when Axl was wearing those tight leather trousers all the time, lol. In the biker shorts UYI era he seemed to tone down the snaking a bit, maybe he became self conscious that it had become a trademark/gimmick? - Anyway there are lots of great snakey clips to choose from, I would put his guest spot with Jagger and the Stones 89 up there, the VMAs and Ritz 88 of course, but at the moment this little gem is my favourite... what's yours?

2.) Is the snake alive and well on the current NITL tour? I've seen him do a few shuffled side-to-sides, but can you post any proper good examples from 2016-2017, or the best we've had?

 

Peace and snakes for all x

I am going to keep looking but there are not many snake dance clips of Axl from this NITL tour...but here is a tutorial on how to learn how to do it.

Best to watch it in mute so you don't hear the annoying porn type music lol! :lol:

LOL..no way I'm muting that!

 

Loved the sanke dance, but I don't think his hips are quite as fluid these days..maybe we can get him to start taking some glucosamine :lol:

As far as I can remember, this was the last time he did it like he gave a damn. Haven't seen him do it like he meant it since this

MTV awards 88 surely, snake dances all over the place. I think the one 47 secs nearly caused the building to topple over.

For Axl's next birthday, shall we do some sort of youtube video where we're all snake dancing?

Incidentally, there's an interesting theory that Axl picked the dance up from... Davy Jones of the Monkees!

I find he's a bit more snake like when he's on a smaller stage.

Good point. The smaller stages meant he was obliged to move energetically in a confined space, but on the huge UYI stage he was more running about etc

Exactly, he has more room to move... and that energy is brought out with running/jumping. When he's on a tiny stage he seems to bounce around.
