    • 7,000 Belgian AC/DC Fans Request Ticket Refunds On Concert With AXL ROSE
      The "rest of the band" is one of the reasons diehard AC/DC fans are especially sore about this. It's not like Brian is the only member who left the band recently; Malcolm and Phil both left in the last two years and both were original members, leaving Angus as the sole original member even last year. Granted Malcolm's departure was unavoidable, but that alone was the death toll of the band for a lot of hardcore fans. Then Phil fucked his life up and got replaced, and even more people gave up on the band. Granted, both were replaced by AC/DC alumni, but that was enough for a lot of fans to give up on them. Add Brian on top of that, I can see where so many people are upset about it. Personally, I'm okay with it - 4 out of 5 members have been in AC/DC at some point before, but I don't want to see Axl/DC turn into an ongoing thing. I think they need to do this tour and call it a day.   Angus and Brian are sort of both frontmen for AC/DC - they both work the crowd. Comparing Brian to Matt Sorum is laughable. Brian was a full-fledged member of the band - he was more integral to the band than Phil/Simon/Chris or Cliff for sure. Keep in mind as well that he was one of only 4 people to ever take part in writing AC/DC songs, with the others being Angus, Malcolm, and Bon.    As for the "business stuff", why shouldn't fans care about it? It shows what the bands intentions are, why they're doing what they're doing. Not to mention coming from you, given your stance on various GN'R lineups, that's a tad hypocritical. Let's not even talk about how Axl's voice has been up and down over the last few years, let's just look at the "good" years; 2001, 2006, and 2010. Axl and the band sounded, objectively, good. Whether or not you like the band during those periods is another story - even in the media you'll be hard pressed to find a critic who faulted the quality of the music, rather than the idea of Axl touring without the original members. But if we apply the logic that you're applying to AC/DC, that as long as the music sounds good then everyone should be happy, than you should be a massive fan of NuGN'R, at least during those three years I mentioned. But that's not the case with you in regards to GN'R, is it?It's easy to say something like "the business factor doesn't matter as long as the music is good" when it's a band you're not as attached to or invested in. For a lot of diehard AC/DC fans, this move is comparable to Axl forming NuGN'R - Angus going out on his own with no other original members (Granted Cliff is a longtime member, but if you want to make comparisons between GN'R and AC/DC, he fits the role of Dizzy in this analogy I'd say) to play the old songs.   Again, I'm a massive fan of this idea, but only because AC/DC and Gn'R are two of my absolute favorite bands. If I wasn't as invested in GN'R, I can see where this is a bad move to other fans.

      You bet. I'm sure that there will be people crawling out of the woodwork that Axl didn't do a good job because he didn't carry Angus around on his shoulders like Bon/Brian.

      diesel, why speechless? angus is the leader and frontman of ac/dc, it's been like that for a long time.
    • 7,000 Belgian AC/DC Fans Request Ticket Refunds On Concert With AXL ROSE
      Yeah, silly fanbase for caring about the actual line up of the band, how insane, where do they get this ridiculous notions?   Fuck it, send me out there, call it Len/DC!
    • Great interviews with Matt and Gilby
      What I mean is... Gilby just played Izzy's parts, he didn't have a unique style or something in particular that make him special, you know? When I see fortus-Slash I do feel something else, Fortus has more personality playing than Gilby.
