    • Do you view 2016 GnR as a reunion or a continuation from 2014?
      The mid-point between the two. I was reluctant to call this a reunion once I learned Pitman was still around but then he left and it was back to the ratio of the UYI days in terms of originals and replacements but then Melissa joined. 4 randoms to 3 originals. There's a different vibe than say if they had binned Pitman as it appeared on that drum skin plus if Adler was in like we thought he might be. You'd have a very different band.
    • Does Death equal Time to Buy in the Age of Nostalgia?
      Well I think we collectively bought into the cultural myth that more is better. Expand. Build. Acquire. Consume. And time is showing it was all a dream. The immediate reaction is rooted in fear which is do the opposite. Recycle everything. Save the planet. Cigarettes aren't cool anymore.  So the cash cow now is in the reunion because the culture is waking up into the nostalgia because it's realizing that although the times they are a changin, nothing really changes. I use the clock to judge the position of the sun like I use Lennon to remember the innocence. It's all a mind trip.   Future lives will be uneventful yet full of pleasure? Very interesting. I read recently you can generate more stress hormones lying in bed thinking of a car crash than actually being in a car crash. We are riding a technological mind wave into the future and we're all randomly falling off the cliff known as death. Save us nostalgia!
    • Richard has been in GNR for 16 years quote
      Fortus is great and I'm cool with him in the lineup but I wish I could've seen slash and finck together as the tandem.   That would kick my ass off.  We definitely could get the best of both worlds of gnr then.  
    • Izzy and steven
      What the hell, guys? What is this Slash-Axl vs Izzy crap? Yes, Izzy left the band back then, Slash and Axl were angry and dissapointed but that was TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO. As far as we KNOW (fn' speculations aside), Izzy is cool with all his former bandmates. When was the last time you heard Slash saying a negative thing about Izzy? It's a damn shame Izzy is not back and it frustrates me as I love the real GNR more than anything, but we don't know the reasons yet there are all kind of accusations being thrown and some sort of contest to see who's the most unreliable out of these guys. None of these guys is a saint, none of them is perfect. They had their differences, they all made mistakes and they broke up a few decades ago, but they've been cool to each other for quite some time now. Why should we take sides in a war that doesn't exist and talk shit about the guys we are supposedly fans of?
