      He didn't give a crap about Nu Guns....he cares again now. 
    • Could Guns do this? (4 hour concert)
      I'm happy to hear most of those songs, and I know I'm not the only one, but the general public probably don't care too much for it.  I'm not saying they should cater to their crowd. What I am saying is they have constructed a set that they think pleases everyone. A few rarities Double talkin, Coma and sometimes Yesterdays, all the biggest hits, and even a few Chinese songs so people don't whinge that "Axls turned his back on CD, and now just a legacy act"  That Gnr are playing 4 Chinese songs is a good sign, that's a band taking 4 prime setlist slots and putting 4 relatively unknown songs in, instead of 4 other relatively unknown classic gnr songs that people might have heard. As far as Knocking on heavens door goes, it's a huge song for GnR going back to the late 80s the band love it and when they play it the crowd lap it up. Is it too long in it's current state!? YES!  The Bruce comparison doesn't work, GnR do not have the same amount of hits. Every time Gnr play a gig, they play all their hits and sprinkle lesser known songs around them to fill in the gaps. When Bruce plays he plays a selection of his hits, he makes the decision of "Will I leave Glory days off the set for this tour" he has that option, because he's also got another 20 hit songs that are just as well known to fill the space, GnR do not have that luxury. They may have extra hit songs. Also, Pink Floyd? GnR did something similar with UYI and Chinese playing a lot of songs before they were released.  What everyone's missing here (including myself sometimes) is that, this is a stadium tour for the masses, not a tour to please the few. If I was n charge of their set, I'd put in all the rarities... I could almost guarantee that by show number 4, half of them would be off the main set in favour of the songs that are commonly played... because they work. Every band has a list of songs that they can't not play, GnR is no different.  Real artists...? real businessmen! There's no artistry in large scale touring, It's business pure and simple. Marketing "what's the average fan, what age group, what songs are most popular on youtube / spotify"  they answer all those questions, put a few in for themselves and cash the cheque.
    • Axl's voice coach
      I like the comment that says "I remember seeing Axl come in every Wednesday at 3pm" no way he was that punctual haha 
    • Gilby Clarke interview - 'I don't know if you can call this a reunion'
      Gilby lives on jeans money. Nothing wrong with that but let's be real.
