    • Best Axl Stories
      Fuck, it only just occured to me after someone posted the Duff story that 'best' Axl stories thread doesn't necessarily mean him at his douchiest.  Sucks how media and shit get your brain associating somewhat negatively with this guy who, when you actually break everything down, is at fault for a minimal amount of things he gets blamed for. Given, he gets blamed for A LOT of things, so the things that are his fault maay be slightly more than you or I, but still. Feel so fucking bad for the dude sometimes. Makes me think of Corey Feldman these past few weeks, and yeah his performance was kinda weird but so what? He made a good point when he said that he posted a reaction video on facebook to remind people that blatantly hateful negativity on the internet actually has an affect on the flesh and bones that put the art out there in the first place.  Like, I wake up every morning and read news websites etc. - Imagine being Axl and literally every day you wake up and check the news after a gig or whatever and there's the headline "YOU, YES YOU SUCK! You are actually music's biggest punchline. More on Page 2..."

    • Richard Fortus Interview: GN'R Has Talked About Playing A Show In Cuba
      What are you talking about? There is only one classic GNR line-up and that's the original one, the one that created Appetite For Destruction. Steven Adler was a HUGE part of GNR's classic sound, not Matt Sorum or Dizzy Reed.
    • Poll: Angus Young vs. Slash
      I don't think that's fair to say. In AC/DC, the vocalist isn't the frontman; Angus is. Axl just plays the role of the vocalist in AC/DC. I never got a sense that he had a lack of confidence in all of the gigs I went to. If he was his normal self up there, everyone would be complaining that he was stealing Angus' thunder.    To answer the question though, AC/DC held my attention far more than GN'R. With GN'R, I'm indifferent to say the least about this lineup. I've gone into why a hundred times, and I don't really feel like doing it again. But beyond that, the shows were a little underwhelming IMO. Axl sounded fairly good most of the time, but apart from Coma/DTJ/the occasional CD rarity, the setlists were fairly boring. I felt like Axl and Slash had no real chemistry together (Or at least no natural chemistry), while they both had excellent chemistry with everyone else on stage. It felt sort of...disingenuous to me. I mean, I still had a good time at both gigs I went to, but I can name at least 5 gigs between 2010 and 2014 that I enjoyed more.    AC/DC though, went above and beyond my ridiculously high expectations. AC/DC was my very first favorite band, and Axl is my favorite singer. So yeah, it was great enough to see him go out with a band I love, singing a ton of songs he's never performed before and absolutely fucking nail them. But then add on the fact that it totally revitalized one of my favorite bands who were slowly becoming stagnant. They went from playing an average of 18 songs per night for the last 25 years, to playing an average of 24 songs with Axl - Philly even ended up being their longest show ever, at 25 songs. They were also the most adventurous setlists the band has ever played; essentially all of the songs they added with Axl had either never been played live, hadn't been played live in 35+ years, or had only been played two or three times in the last 35 years. If you had told me even six months ago that this year AC/DC would play Rock N' Roll Damnation, Given The Dog A Bone, If You Want Blood, Live Wire, Touch Too Much, Riff Raff, and Problem Child all at some point this year, I would have fucking lost it laughing at you. And on top of all that, the band sounded fucking good. There was this energy in their sound all over again, they haven't played with this much purpose since The Razor's Edge tour in 1991. Basically, Axl re-lit a flame deep inside Angus. And it was so damn rewarding.
