    • It would be interesting to have a lawyer with knowledge of California law review the suit and explain what, exactly gave Steven the leverage to force a settlement.  In Florida, I know for a fact that being "out of your mind" on drugs or alcohol cannot be used as legal reasoning.  You would actually have to have a mental illness and be determined to be mentally incompetent to understand the contract. Were they just worried that a judge/jury would ignore the law because they were unlikable?
    • I agree with some of what is said upthread. There is an audience for lengthy noodling and improv but I think it's better suited to an intimate setting, kind of an 'audience with' type show where that's what you're there for. Arena and stadium shows should have a 10 min max solo limit because I think for most of the audience beyond a certain point it takes them out of the show. You don't want them to reach that point where they think 'I'm bored' because what follows from that is the realisation they are also too hot/too cold, their feet hurt, they need a piss and the toilets are half a mile away etc..once you lose an audience a little bit it's hard to win them back. As @jekylhydesaid you want a show to be an immersive, impactful experience where time flies and you are left wanting more. The show I was at had enough casual fans as it was who bailed after SCOM. Most aren't there because they appreciate music to the level of long solos.
    • Civil War Pigs - two awesome songs medley?
    • i agree. i play guitar myself, there are many rock albums that are the soundtrack of my life. but at admission, I never signed a contract that stated i have to like 30 minute solos, to be qualified a fan. i don't like long solos, not live, not in studio. the die hards may say, songs with long solos are classic and artistic, i find them boring. take the rolling stones. great when they were snappy and kept the song under 3.25, but downright boring with their 7 minute songs. but who am I right. i dont claim to be a musical connoisseur, i just enjoy good music when i hear it
    • That was boring as fuck...

      As much as Slash is probably the best at what he does and the best suited for GnR by far, watching him jamming for half an hour on Rocket Queen is frankly boring for the same reason watching Angus Young jamming for half an hour on Whole Lotta Rosie would be a gigantic pain in the ass. 

      He is an amazing blues-rock guitarist but not much more so when a blues rock jam lasts for half an hour with zero change of tonality, modality, scale, no surprises whatsoever just basically the same song for half an hour, then yeah it gets stale real fast.
