    Geez people actually still think it's the label and not TB who's the initiator of it all. First of all Universal is known for monetizing the shit out of fan posted copyright material. And as you can clearly see in these screenshots, they were not on a mission to stop gnr content from being posted. They monetized almost every single video from my channel and many other gnr related channel too and im not claiming we made them rich but still every penny is one. Take a closer look to these (re)posted shots from my old channel, its a pretty good summary that shows that universal was liking the money gnr content created for them. As i said before UMG removed a lot of those demo's included in the box right before the box was announced, so they went manually through my channel blocking all content that was about to be released but UMG never striked me as you can see on this screenshot. Please also note the Claimed by: UMG part In this next screenshot u can see UMG claiming a video but this time they choose to let is stay on my channel but they will monetize it, which is fine by me because i even didnt have the monetizing option turned on and nearly all my video's where monetized by UMG anyways Please also note the Claimed by: UMG part Then suddenly the IFPI comes and claims the same video and gives me a strike for it, which i find very strange because the IFPI works for companies as UMG making sure any YT money goes to the right copyright owner which in this case is UMG. So here comes the IFPI overruling a decision made by the real content holder UMG and by doing this they make the company they work for LOOSE money. Please note the Takedown issued by IFPI part So when that happened it raised some questions and I contacted the IFPI about it and at first, they didn't react at all but after multiple emails asking them how they could overrule a decision made by the one and only copyright holder they gave me some automated bullshit reply, not even responding to my original question. Ofcourse i replied with screenshots proving the overuling story but they never responded again. So I knew I was working with copyrighted material and I also knew that one day this could happen. Therefore I'm not complaining, my whole point in this is the way TB executed their plans. First they monetize certain channels for years and years and then suddenly out of the blue many channels where being terminated. And instead of just sending an email or make a statement that they want the video's gone they'd hired some mentally disturbed tards to do the dirty work for them. Remember when the strikes added up TB was reached and nicely asked what was going on and they ignored it from the start until screenshots were given to them and they noticed the claims came from Uzisuicidal LLC. An account that was owned by GNR/TB, the minute they saw that action was taken and the copyrights stopped coming from that account. Soon after that, the claims began to come from the IFPI which is an organization that protects content holders and it's main goal is to make sure the revenue that comes from YT adds goes to the right content holders. Many content holders can get an account from them after making clear and providing proof that the content they claim really belongs to them. When the proof is verified a content holder gets a "license to strike" which makes it as easy as sending the IFPI an email with a link to the content they wish to have removed and then the IFPI will report to YT which always leads to the removal of the provided YT video. All of this is an automated process IFPI doesn't verify they links they get offered because they would need to hire a ton of employees to be able to verify every single link that gets forwarded to them which is way too expensive. Besides that, all account holders have already been verified anyways. YT also doesn't verify all the links they are offered because the IFPI is already a known company to them, besides that YT doesn't want any copyright bullshit to deal with. So they block any claim coming in, afraid to be sued by the claimer and basically tell the channel owner, hey you're guilty until proven innocent. So yeah more and more people blame TB for not being responsive and the tone against them get much rougher every day and in my eyes there's plenty of legit reasons for that if you consider these facts: - When noticing strikes came from Uzisuicidal they stopped it within 24 hours and now they say they can't do anything about it. I bet they never even tried it - Beta saying she doesn't know who's behind the claims but she does know it's not a fan and it will continue - Anyone can remove some video's through a scam but to remove them on this scale you need a verified account - How did them tards gain control over Uzisuicidal LLC which was proven to be tied to Wankers personal email adress - How can them tards remove vids on this scale when they don't own the copyright to it...... indeed do the math - Companies like UMG always use algorithms to identify their content so how come certain fb pages are being killed and others not while they have the same content - Almost every single claim on facebook says its from a third party that reported it which means someone personally reported it and not an algorhytm - If Universal was responsible they would kill every FB page that has video's and not being picky - Beta bashing a very dedicated fan that never disrespected the band nor stalked them and is always very helpfull to other fans - Selling a very expensive AFD box you know only hardcore fans will buy and cutting the price by 500,- within a few months without compensating the day one buyers so basically rob them for 500,- - Hiring tards to do your dirty work while they are known as a malignant tumor in the community for years and banned from nearly every gnr related platform for obvious reasons - Ignoring a disturbingly racist meme on your main forum without a permaban - Paying lots of money to the wrong person to keep leaks from happening but still have it leaked and killing peoples dedicated channels earning money for you with no reason - Asking to be tagged in video's in order to strike their channels easily - Terminating peoples non gnr related youtube channels which sometimes was their life's work without a warning because they went to a show and posted a small clip of it. I can go on for hours but for it's these kinda things that all add up on the bashing of TB and yet there are still people who can't understand why TB is being criticised more and more. Must be losing my mind, are they blind?

    Fuck me! It has been explained my many people many times. Everything you keep saying we should has been tried. It falls on deaf ears, we have wasted a lot of time and effort providing the evidence for TB. I honestly think you know this but find it amusing for some reason. If TB are so fucking nice to you, you tell them, maybe then you will have some understanding and compassion for those who worked hard on their channels only to have them removed.

    well maybe, just maaaaaybeeeee it might be time for some HC fans to stop being humble and polite to Ax/TB/Del and whole bunch of that useless fuckers and treat them like they treat fans, ex members, people from their past... People here have tendency to down play reality. Why not say truth? Frank is shit? Sure, but so are Rich and Mel. NITL is reunion tour? Sure as hell it ain't! It is a half assed attempt to grab some money and have mediocre musicians play the parts of the ones that should be there but Axl doesn't want to share money with. This is practicaly Slash and friends show. Nobody is there for Axl's singing today or Duff's playing. Surely not for Frank/Rich/Mel. Remove Slash from equation - this team is back to club sizes. With every line up, this band was less and less Guns N Roses. Gilby and Matt were not GNR? Well how many generations down the line from them are Rich and Frank? Today is 2019, when was 1991? What did Axl do post 1993? Nothing! Let's stop pretending CD was any good. None of the songs there had any potential of the UYI level. If you were to remove one track of UYI's, no CD track would have potential to replace. OK...My World could have easily been on CD... Apart from Slash playing his parts, Duff playing his, Axl's singing is at the low point, Frank and Rich play other ppl's parts - but worse and that is about it. It is all being managed by people who transfered from house cleaners to rock managers and failed wannabe authors to people who live of Axl's money, while telling him people who helped create the music they all live off from last 30 years should not be let back in the band or share equal amount with. CD, the leaks, the tours, the merch - it is all a far cry from what it once was. The passion, the edge...nothing there anymore. Just Slash's playing, big lights, XXL screens and Mickey Mouse trying to sing GNR songs with 1/3 of selist being covers. Welcome to GNR world 2019. Kind of forseabe with Live Era release - 1999. One big scam.

    Are you saying the boxset was released by Team Brazil and that they were in charge of pricing? I am pretty certain this criticism should be directed at Universal and not the band's management. There is lots of valid criticism than can be levied at Team Brazil, making them the culprits for every grudge we have against the band is definitely not helping to create that fertile ground for communication between us and them, which is likely the only thing that can be beneficial to us.

    Tapes were good because they were easy to copy. The worst thing about cds was when those spindly little plastic bits in the middle of the case it fitted onto used to snap off and get under the CD and scratch it.

    Kinda sad, the number of people on this thread that seem to have been finding their lives quite hard going for a long time. I hope the years that come are better than the ones that have gone for you guys. When I think about it, I've had a really good decade, barring a small period in 2014/2015 where I lost momentum a wee bit and ended up having to do some jobs that I didn't really care about for a short time, it's been full of self-discovery, learning, adventures, volcanoes and other amazing places, and making bonds with some really wonderful human beings from all over the world. I think I've been very lucky .

    ''Stoned in LA'' being the apt description for Guns N' Roses at that point in time.

    Well, I don't have a say or stake in the success of your podcast... but as a gnr fan, listening to a gnr themed podcast I disagree, even though I agree that he probably couldn't have given what most here would consider a satisfactory answer. It never hurts to ask the question. If Dizzy is out doing press, he knows by now (30yrs in) that people care to hear about gnr, old tour stories, current tour stories and future plans. Yes they like to hear about how he started, his influences and a percentage are interested in his outside project. However, he is well aware of why he is where he is... and dancing around that is pointless. They probably do enjoy the interviews more though because you don't ask the questions they don't want to answer. I totally understand why you're not doing it, I just disagree. I think if all the "key" members have discussed it, and it's confirmed to be happening; then it's fair game to ask about it. On a positive😃 you have done a few that were quite interesting like the Susan interview. I actually think you're quite good, I just would prefer a little more edge when it comes to asking a "sensitive" question.

    The letter was to TB overall, but Del got ahold of it. His first reaction was to insult fans. His second reaction was to rant about bootlegging. Then his third and best reaction was to share a fan video of a different artist on his social media the very next day. That letter I wrote is a prime example of exactly how far "being nice" to TB, Del and the entire GNR organization gets you.

    They are not going to listen to us, have no desire to, and are probably busy trying to come up with a follow up item to those damn terrible laundry bags as we speak. A GNR broom would be great, Beta could ride it off into the damn sunset. 🤣

    I hope all these people get on a plane designed by somebody who was allowed to argue their way to a passing grade in math.

    There have been multiple attempts to contact TB - Russ's letter to Del about threats which was basically dismissed with a rant about bootlegging.

    The one thing about cassettes that is completely unique is when you're listening to them on a walkman and the batteries start to die. It doesn't just shut off but the songs get slower and slower so it sounds like the band have all been at the ketamine.

    And the “insider” had absolutely no idea about a whole new tour leg in Europe for 2018, which must’ve been planned for a long time because it was headlining festivals - so they deleted all of those rumours you mention

    Remember how Bumble treated the fans? that's how someone who truly gives a fuck will behave imo. Not condescending, trying to give the fans as much as he can, puts himself in our shoes. Even when he couldn't really give new info he always tried to be gracious and accommodating. Fernando comes off as cocky and as you say, entitled. Not even confirming if it was really his Reddit account, calling SOYL a brand new single and labeling fans pretty much as "haters/naive/misguided" is not going to help with the fractured relationship between the band and it's hardcore fans. Beta comes off like she doesn't understand basic interaction with fans of a band of this caliber either. This is just how I view it, but they do seem to look at us as the enemy and my general feeling is they would prefer it if this forum didn't exist at all. They came from basically an average life just like most people so you'd think they'll be able to at least see where we come from with our frustration with the situation but it's like Axl corp. now and they seem to think the job is to protect Axl. They could accomplish it without turning fans against them all the time imo but it's so black and white with them and they're not very open to listen to the fans it seems.

    Dude I try to explain this to my wife with the caveat "I know you won't care, and I know you'll think this is ridiculous, BUT.....". Everytime I explain to her the latest drama she just laughs and says "that's ridiculous".

    I made this overview of when songs debuted live and when they were last played live in both the old and new era. Then added how often they were played. This is all based on setlists.fm and updated until 2 November 2019. I'm not entirely sure about You're Crazy AFD version vs Lies version. So the numbers on the AFD one are a total of both.

    Well I suppose the idea is that 'social realism' and stuff like that, do your working classes really watch those sorts of films? Your average shit shoveller like, say, McLeod for instance He's into his Commandos and Predators and that. So who watches these films really? Middle class Guardian reading poofters, as Dies' might call em It's a guilt thing y'know, like not watching them is somehow ignoring the plight of the poor put upon working class. But then when they do watch em they still feel guilty because they are presented with the reality of the people beneath them in the social hierachy and class system of our society, of which they are in a better position and, by virtue of that, sort of to blame. The rich get richer because the poor get poorer is the idea.

    The staff here has been more than outgoing with respect to TB. Their (TB) attitude in general towards the fans is "fuck off" though, and that's what upsets me.

    Here’s hoping. What we got before is way beyond what anyone expected so if that’s it - fair enough. But - there was enough suggestions to more material that has made it believable that more is on the way.

    if you call "fanatical fans" all the people who'd just like their favourite band to be releasing stuff just as every other band in the world, and would like to have some normal communication from the band/mgmt just as every other band/mgmt is doing - I see. then probably all of us must be fanatical, maybe besides huge piles of super casual fans who just go to shows to sing along KOHD and buy tshirt and toy truck. it's sad that these are the only target audience of the band for nearly a decade already, and definitely since the NITL reunion. the band and management showed numerous times (and keeps doing so) that everyone else who's more than super casual can just fuck off. this band's and this bands psychopathic management's attitude towards all of us is flat out hostile. everyone is frustrated because the fat axl memes are probably the only thing we can talk about for a long time. yeah, childish as hell, but hey - don't tell me the fanbase is to blame. every other band in the world and every other management in the world is trying to have a nice relationship with their fanbases and both parties are super happy about it. in GNR world - not so much. GNR management is probably the only management in the world, which has been and still is actively working on alienating the band from its fanbase. so no wonder people are frustrated and fed up with those incompetent clowns. all they can "manage" is probably selling some merch online and make Axl a cup of tea. everything else is massively successful almost despite their tryings. if the "management" just packed their things and went to hell, this snowball would still be massively successful, just for being there (and the label would probably make sure everything would make sense from the commercial point of view - but again - just the reunion itself is a cash generating machine, so why trying to "improve" something which generates billions without even trying) rant end.

    Metallica considered By Request a let down because most shows resulted in the same popular songs getting voted for every time. A GNR By Request tour would be the same level of disappointment.

    Seeing them earlier this year and how slash gets into the material and the showmanship of the band and general commaraderie compared to how slash is onstage with gnr is like night and day. He seems so much into SMKC. I wonder with nitl and slashs gnr committments if they rushed LTD out rather than maybe working on it a little more.

    That is for sure.. That was the first album Slash has ever been on that I didn't like at all. That was more to do with Myles though.. He made it all sound bland and generic..

    Slash is a workaholic, and I think the fact that his schedule is pretty much clear for the foreseeable future is the best indicator that they are serious about putting out...something...be it an album or EP.

    There are reasons to think Slash was supposed to be sober before the Rolling Stones shows in October '89. After the shows he went to Phoenix for detox, but ironically brought coke with him and had one of his ugliest eposides as strung out. One he would look back at with horror in years to come. When returning to LA after Phoenix, he was met with an intervention (with Steven, Ola, Niven, Duff...) and then sent off to rehab "against his will" which he quit after three days. He then decided to clean up on his own, at Hawaii. This likely happened in late '89 or early '90. From then on, he was semi-sober. I think it is reasonable to think that Axl's speech added to his decision to clean up, but of course wasn't the only reason. Izzy's journey at becoming sober started earlier in '89, in Lafayette. Then came his peeing incident up in the air (August '89) which added a strong legal motivation to get his act together. So when he played with RS he was likely more or less already clean, although he would still drink (incidentally, he had his last drink in the company of his RS buddies somewhat later in '90). In contrast to Slash, Izzy seems to have been successful in quitting altogether with no known relapses. Slash would continue to drink and snort and have the occasional relapses to harder drugs (like his famous death in San Francisco in '92).

    That's my overall stance. I have zero interest in a live album and less interest in just a blu-ray release. GNR has beaten all hope out of me. Rumors are rumors and that's great, but they don't really mean much to me anymore. That last part of your post rings more true to me than anything: I'll believe it when I see anything with respect to forward movement from GNR.
