    • AFD era Axl vs UYI Era Axl
      AFD Axl would probably mock the UYI Axl -- just like he was calling out Iron Maiden in that interview. Had he actually remained as he was during AFD, I doubt the grunge bands would have gone after him so much. AFD Axl was a humble street urchin. Yeah GnR's lyrics were misogynistic and they were decadent but they were still real and raw. I'm sure Nirvana would have still given them shit but it would have been way less than the tarring and feathering gnr got from the grunge bands back in the day. 
    • AFD era Axl vs UYI Era Axl
      i came on this thread ready to write something like this "how do you dare to compare Axl 1986-1990 with Axl 1992-1993. Please stop embarassing yourself" Reading what you wrote, all I can say is that you pretty much nailed it. I agree with basically everything you said (except the grunge thing). Yeah, Axl seemed like somebody else on the UYI Tour Now how does someone get that crazy? === In those years (basically 1988-1991) Guns  Roses was the biggest band in the world -- period. No one could fucking touch them. They had the best live show, they had the best songs -- and everything else. (funny is that they were still not big enough in 1988, they didnt do shit in 1989-90 and basically imploded before 1991 ended)  I cant measure how big GNR was then, but Id say it was almost as big as, say, Michael Jackson during Thriller era Seriously. Everyone in the planet knew Sweet Child o Mine. Think something like Adele today and multiply that for like, 18 times! Now think what this did to the five guys -- specially to Axl who was the frontman and obviously the biggest focal point in the band. Everyone saying how great he was all day long... a lot of yes men trying to take advantage of him... So you can imagine how that must have affected him === The funny thing is that Axl still was Axl (at least onstage) during most of 1991 In Rio shows -- those were completely animalesque -- you can see he is clearly enjoying himself On the early US and European tours a lot of nonsense was already creeping in but Axl was still loose onstage. Everything changed afte izzy left === After izzy left, everything went REALLY downhill Guns n Roses was never the same (not musically, not in any other sense) and Axl changed completely The most painful things to watch is that he was no longer that animal out of the cage singing like a possessed man no Axl became a professional He became controlled onstage He also didnt seem to enjoy himself anymore on stage That was really fucked up. It took away the fun off listening and watching GNR === Now fast forward 25 years from 1991  and... Axl is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! http://www.mygnrforum.com/index.php?/topic/215276-this-is-way-beyond-rasp-this-is-singing-like-he-means-it-how-do-you-describe-this-back-in-black/

    • The EU just doesn't work for Britain
      I know the Commonwealth games. That's a mixed bag.  I just wonder if the out vote is a vote based on fear or is it just control?
