I don't understand this thinking. There is no deadline. Easy to try and apply logic and give it a year, but there are many factors that can't be ignored like the fact they are still in touring mode, there's Angus, and Axl wants to write fresh material.
It's just not realistic to lose hope before another decade has passed.
Edit: plus you know Axl was finishing up CD ll with Pitman in 2015. The semi reunion restarted the whole thing. I believe Axl when he says he wants to release more music, I see the excitement in his eyes when Slash is noodling but not soon is more than just a year or two.
It's not about the talent or the band...it's more to do with the outrageous ticket prices. It cost $100 to sit in nosebleeds and listen to your favorite band, or over $300-400 to have good seats. Most fans of the band have family and friends they like to go with but at over $1000 it makes it difficult to attend a show and have good seats.
Throw in the fact that they are about to come around the US again and most of us would love to see the band play live again however we haven't seen any changes to the set we saw last year, so at the end of the day why spend that much money to see the same thing again.
I think when you have these factors combined it feels like a cash grab, especially to those who grew up at a time when you could see an amazing concert for under $50. It just feels like they are rushing around the world to collect on this opportunity and personally I have no objections to this, but I can see why so many are disappointed or feel priced out by this tour
I said this in another topic, but I will say it here too cause its fitting. A lot of people here in my opinion are stuck in 1987 and want that image of a band living on the streets banging chicks and rehearsing in a seedy rehearsal space in LA. Its called the music "business" for a reason, I feel like to me the talks of cash grabs are just silly, of course people want money. If I could command millions of dollars having fun with people on stage playing great tunes in the largest venues in the world, I would do that for as long as I could.
to anyone who does not know the history of the Dallas Cowboys MR. DREW PEARSON is pure class! standing O to Dial Double 8 in a Clutch, one of my top FIVE all time players and a very great and gracious man!
Wasted, you can't receive messages, I wanted to ask you:
You had called an Izzy song something along the lines of "his Mr. Brownstone" and I listened to it and loved it. I can't remember the name or find it now. Can you tell me the title? Thanks man!
