    My buddy interviewed Slash earlier today. During the interview Slash confirms that a new GNR record is in the works. He also comments on the rumors that he was at Axl's house recently. Take a listen and discuss https://wrif.com/episodes/talkin-rock-with-slash/

    If Tenderness was the best 11 songs out of 70 he had written, I hope Duff get's zero writing input on any new music.

    One day the band won’t be around anymore and people will say “Damn, I wish I could see Guns live again.” Until then, I’m going to enjoy what’s given to me and whatever comes with it. See you in Charlotte and Vegas.

    Clearly you guys aren't fans of the band or understand the bands or Axl's history. Axl has been doing pre show preparation for decades including physical exercise, stretching and having work done on his back. There are a number of articles that mention his pre show practices. Instead of knocking the guy down, maybe read and understand why he does preparation. One would think after decades of doing the same thing, as a 55 year old he might of given it away by now. The fact he is still doing it means it's for a reason. Might not be to your liking or reasons, but you aren't the ones up on stage for 3 hours plus. If you were able to see the man from close up, front of stage, then you would have been able to see the sweat pouring off his forarms and teeshirt. You would need to have physical stamina, fitness and a healthy body to continue being physically active for long periods of time.

    Axl: Beta, get Fernando on the blower Beta: Why Mr Axl? Axl: Slash keeps talking about recording new music. Beta: What do you want us to do Mr Axl? Axl: Get some fucking tour dates announced pronto. I can't be having this new music talk every time he gets a little down time. Beta: Right away, Mr Axl. Axl: Who knew Alter Bridge would be the bain of my fucking life? Beta: I'm so sorry Mr Axl

    Mr Brownstone was about geology; Welcome to the Jungle was about environmental conservatism; Nightrain was literally that: being on a train at night; You're Crazy was about mental health awareness; Bad Obsession, obsessive compulsive disorder.

    I was round at a friend's house the other day and she said hey look at this, and showed me a mint condition box set - the first one I've ever seen, so I was going nuts saying "whose is it?" She said it's her housemate's, so I went to speak to him all excited, saying "hey wow you own a box set" and he just goes "yeah I designed it", all matter of factly. He works for Universal. I only had a few minutes to ask him about it, but here's what he told me: during the design process, there was a lot of discussion and dispute between the band and the record company about what should go into it. The band were less keen on having all the gimmicks go in, the merchandise etc, but were insistent on including as much music as possible including the rare demos. The dispute about what should go in went on for so long that eventually the record company just put their foot down and said well we've run out of time so this is what's going in. What struck me was that he wasn't a fan as such, just some designer dude who got the job. I asked him about the non inclusion of OIAM but he'd never even heard of the song, so knew nothing about that aspect. He said he was gonna sell his on eBay lol.

    For people like you, who seem determined to dislike anything the current line up might put out, yes the writting will have been on the wall. The rest of us with open minds will wait until we hear any of the material before passing judgement.

    "turn around bitch I got a use for you" is as sexist a lyric as I ever heard, but I have no problem with that. it was meant to provoke and to have a laugh, not being taken literally and that's how I hear them. But this twisting and turning and "it was misunderstood" nonsense is token of the PC culture we live in today. In the light of this, I don't think Duff is best placed to write a song dedicated to the metoo movement. it's dishonest, cringeworthy and reeking of hypocrisy. Just be a man and stand by what you say, don't go twisting your own words in order to please some SJW's. You meant nothing wrong with that line, so don't go acting as if you did anything wrong.

    I was front row and it was surreal as he literally climbed on top of me at the end when he semi crowd surfed. Here's my recording of dust n Bones and I have a couple others under my channel there. I started recording another song (honestly forget what it was now) and was pissed because it got cut off accidentally 3/4 through. Here he is in the crowd with me. If you skip to photo 4 or 5 there's a close up of his face and that's when he was literally climbing over top of me and my reaction was to take photos because why not. I think he was basically using me as support and when he was finished I helped kind of guide him back over the rail, but it all happened really quickly and it'd be funny to watch a video of it if someone uploads the song later. I've been up since 4am yesterday, so... exhausted and going to bed, but it was a killer show and I was so impressed with Shooter. The girl on violin was SO GOOD.

    as in the specific date? There's a funny story when they told him 9, assuming it was known as 9am because voiceovers is a day job for people, but Axl came at 9 at night.

    @RussTCB is one of the kindest people I know. Hes done a lot for me over the years that he in no way had to. Today he gave me a Locked and Loaded cabinet with most of the stuff still in it. Freaking awesome. You da man, Russ. You are an awesome friend

    Blabbermouth has picked it up along with UCR. I'm sure it'll make its way to every music site by the end of the day. I'm so glad my buddy asked me for questions yesterday. I was like "NEW MUSIC" and "Ask about Axl's house while you're at it" immediately when he asked haha.

    A fan who spoke to Frank at Duff’s LA show a few days ago says he told him they’ll be back in the UK next year. He said Scotland will get a show this time.

    It's so fucking obvious, but tools are always too literal. By the way, Duff's next book should be titled "From Cornshucker to Tenderness (How I've Become a Big Fat Pussy)".

    It’s wild to me that such a major brand name is managed by people like this. Imagine if McDonalds was managed by TB? “You want new menu options? Ronald doesn’t owe you anything!! Isn’t the new packaging of our Big Mac beautiful?? New chicken sandwich being worked on but not sure if soon is the word.”

    This should have been a poll.. Slash for me easily. Not interested in Guns N' Roses without Slash. The Appetite lineup as a whole is the band that collectively struck a nerve with me like no other band has and the reason I still follow them til this day. Obviously no Guns N' Roses without Axl but most negatives I see with the band fall on him. It is hard to watch videos from the illusions tour sometimes because of his ridiculous posing and outfits.. His voice makes it hard to watch current day live videos. Quite a few songs on the Illusions could have been better without all the Axlisms and stupid over dubs. Mike Clink should have reeled him in.. Then there is the highly debated fact of why they broke up. Aside from Steven being fired Slash, Duff and Izzy have all pretty much said at one time or another it was because of Axl.. That said... It may have been a brief period, but I believe Axl Rose from 1987 - 1991 was the coolest, most bad ass motherfucking front man in rock.. Maybe of all time...

    "Post Pancreas Explosion Syndrome", or PPES, is a relatively unknown malady. The cause is self explanatory and symptoms include, but are not limited to: selective memory, reading obscure books, remorse for activities that no one really cares about anymore, backtracking, and claims of being punk as fuck. Unfortunately, there is no known cure but there are treatment options, the most successful being daily applications of a topical cream.

    Just gonna say I personally have no problem with any lyrics from GNR. They're a rock band , to me it's all part of the package or image, sex,drugs and rock n roll. Duff should admit the truth, there's no saints in GNR.

    I'll accept that Duff's attitude has changed. I find it harder to accept that every nasty lyric written in 1986 when they were 18-year-olds was a joke. To be fair, GN'R had a degree of self-awareness which other bands didn't. It just didn't stretch to treating women who made themselves available to the band, with respect. NEXT: Motley Crue announce that Girls Girls Girls is actually a meditation on female empowerment!

    just want to remind you that you, the one who buys tickets for these shows, are responsible for the lack of matt/gilby/steven/izzy, the lack of new music and the most horrible fan service in rock n roll history. its a problem since 1996. instead of supporting Axl Rose, we all should have boycotted him. thats the bitter truth about guns n roses.

    As a reminder: It was the media and other people (and the fans on the internet later) that made a case of Axl being mentally ill more than Axl made a case for himself (and didn't even present it as a mental illness). Magazines made profiles of him with stories from old friends, acquaintances, band mates etc. saying that Axl was crazy, something chemical was going on in his head, he was diagnosed psychotic in Indiana, and so on. It was also reported that Axl was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder and taking medication, and Axl disputed that the medication could help him. Then Axl did interviews saying he was abused as a kid, probably prompted by the kind of therapy he was undergoing where therapists advise their clients to "open up" about their issues. And then there has been discussion on message boards where people "know" or have an opinion about what Axl has (some even "know" what kind of treatment he should have) or equally "know"/have an opinion that he has nothing.

    Your stupid girlfriends tell you, that I'm to blame Well, they're all used up has-beens out of the game This time I'll have the last word, you hear what I say? I tried to see it your way, it won't work today Bullshit and contemplation, gossip's their trade If they knew half the real truth, what would they say? Well I'm past the point of concern, it's time to play These last four years of madness sure put me straight You don't get back 14 years in just one day So hard to keep my own head, just go away, you know Just like a hooker, she said, "Nothin's for free" Oh, I tried to see it your way I tried to see it your way - Izzy Stradlin'

    "Never before seen" photos and interview surfaces on the Internet? Huh. I remember this well. More specifically, I remember trawling local newspaper around the time of the 1993 Edmonton gig trying to find information about this elusive show, resulting in a lot of the images and interviews in your article. And posting them to Appetite for Discussion already back in 2014. http://www.a-4-d.com/t1998-1993-03-28-northlands-coliseum-edmonton-canada The rest of the articles and interviews stems from @Blackstar's more recent work. This is how we do it. We spend a lot of our time trying to dig up articles and clips that are otherwise lost to the fan community, through paid subscriptions to newspaper archives and free repositories. Every image in your article comes from A4D. The only thing that doesn't come from A4D is the youtube vid of Matt in your article, but Matt is talking about the Chile gig in December 1992 and not the 1993 Edmonton show.

    Wait.........No one is saying that women shouldn't be equal with men and calling what Duff is saying bullshit does not mean someone thinks women are less than men. Duff is NOT saying "women should be equal to men", Duff is saying a amazingly sexest line from ISE was meant in a joking manner, which is absolutely not true. He's not supporting women by making that claim, he's actually insulting women's intelligence by trying to pass that BS off as fact if you ask me.

    Duff seems like a smart and cool dude.. Guns lyrics weren't misunderstood.. They always boasted how real their music was and how it was a reflection of their life and the times.. Just own up to it.. Times change, people change and evolve.. Just because you are a different person now doesn't mean you have to pretend you weren't what you were then. So lame....

    Yeah, this revisionism is just stupid on Duff's part. He could just contextualise it and say it was a different time in a particular environment. They weren't exactly a women-friendly bunch - all of them. It is known about Axl. Slash had said they treated groupies like shit because they deserved it. Izzy had said something about "selling girls". He had also assaulted Vince Neil's wife and kicked her in the stomach. Matt Sorum was arrested four times for DV. Steven Adler was also arrested for the same thing later.

    Absolute bullshit! Slash and Duff used to have blowjob games during the Illusion tour for crying out loud. They used to get the cameramen to focus on the attractive ladies and get them brought backstage to perform sex acts on them as some sort of competition. Something sordid happened when Rose and Slash were on the run from the police also in 1985, perhaps involving sex with inebriated minors - Geffen hushed it up with cash. PS And Rose raped Erin and Steph! Yip, ''good dudes'' indeed.

When EVERYTHING in the fucking world is skyrocketing and pay remains shit, that means almost nothing will be affordable for the average consumer. So, suck a fat dick if you think $100+ face value nosebleeds are acceptable.
