    anyone a member? I am going through some old stuff and I came across this, I remember I signed up for it for 1 year and I am pretty sure I was supposed to get a Newsletter every 4 months and I got this 1 newsletter and I never heard back from them, kind of makes sense if you look at the timeline as this was dated from May 9, 1996 and Slash left in October and maybe the band went into a disarray and they stopped sending them and making them, anyone know if they made any after this Volume 1 issue 3? anyone have any of the previous 2 Newsletters? it is odd though I received this in May 1996, and looking at the "Language of Fear" thing it talks about a contest and the entries have to be received by February 1995 and the discography says compiled November 1994 and Sympathy for the Devil was released in December 94 so I am guessing they just sent me an old copy.

    Thanks for finding it and sending it, @MillionsOfSpiders ---------------- [...] [On the Motley Crue biopic and the possibility of a Guns N’ Roses movie]: Slash: I thought the Motley movie was great. Actually, I just saw it a couple of days ago, and it really took me back to the early days in the 80's all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that sort of happened along the way. And then it gave me an insight, sort of internal details that I wasn’t really aware of. But I thought that came out great. I wouldn’t want to do a Guns movie like that. I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band (laughs). It just doesn’t even seem possible. But I think we have a lot of concert footage from the 90's in the can, like 24/7 footage from 1991 to 1994 of just every day on the road with Guns N’ Roses, and it’s been sitting in a vault for years. I would love for that to be edited at one point and put out. So we’ll see if that ever happens. [On “Leaving Neverland” and the new Michael Jackson controversy]: Slash: I can’t weigh in on that. I haven’t seen it. I mean, I was on the road in Europe and there was some talk of what the movie revealed and so on, but I can’t really make any kind of statement about it, because I haven’t seen it yet. And it’s been really quiet since that initial release, so I’m not really sure. [On the plans for the rest of 2019]: Slash: After South America, we'll go straight to Europe and do the festivals over there. And after Europe, we'll go back to the States and Canada to do our first Canadian tour plus some U.S. dates; and that goes until August. Then, after that, I’m gonna hook up with Guns N’ Roses. Guns N’ Roses has a small tour in October. And then, you know, there’s been so much talk about the Guns N’ Roses record, which we haven’t actually done anything with (laughs); so we’re gonna sort of focus on that. And the Conspirators will be some time coming up, depending on what Guns N’ Roses is doing, but I’ve already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record. -------------- I have transcribed all the interview here: http://www.a-4-d.com/t3818-2019-04-05-futuro-88-9-fm-chile-interview-with-slash#14101 Original source: https://www.futuro.cl/2019/04/slash-no-me-gustaria-ver-una-pelicula-de-guns-n-roses-como-la-de-motley-crue/

    I'll start with two: 1) I prefer Don't Cry (Alt Lyrics) over Don't Cry. 2) I think Chinese Democracy is some of Axl's best work.

    I don't understand why so many people get upset over GnR doing a show? Because it has grown old or boring? Realistically what could you possibly be doing on a Saturday night in September that is better than seeing Guns n Fucking Roses live. Have a drink at the show and have fun. That's what life is about, enjoying it and having fun. If a GnR show isn't enough for you than go do something else with your time and stop complaining Axl, Slash and Duff all said new music is coming and i have no reason not to believe them. I just hope there is a tour date closer to me.

    It was cringey when NuGuns did it, and it was just as bad when they did it in 2016. I thought it brought some of the 'Vegas tackiness' from the residency shows to the 2016 shows. It's cheesy as hell to see strippers behind some 50+ year olds on a nostalgia tour. That's the kinda shit I'd expect from Motley Crue

    I dont get some of you so called fans. Most of us fans support the dying breed of Rock N Roll music. Today its all EDM music and festivals built to attract social media influences to take a snap of themselves at a festival because its cool and hip. When the major headline from Coachella is Ariana Grande having a lemon thrown at her by a Beyoncé fan because of an issue they have, you know the music industry is in trouble. Any chance offered to embrace and support Rock N Roll, with our favourite band appearing is a good thing in my eyes.

    During an appearance earlier today (Friday, February 22) on SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation", Duff McKagan said that a new GUNS N' ROSES album could happen in the not-too-distant future, remarking: "I heard some new material and there's been some jams going around, and that's the next step for us, for the GN'R thing." Asked by host Eddie Trunk "how real" the potential is for a new GUNS N' ROSES record, Duff replied: "Oh, it's real. But the fun part and the cool part about GUNS N' ROSES is we don't really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It's never been that band that there's a direct schedule of how we do things." He continued: "I've heard some magnificent stuff that Axl [Rose, vocals] has — really cool stuff he'd been working on. So I'm excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don't mean to get anybody rabid. [A new GUNS N' ROSES album] will happen when it happens, that's for sure." McKagan also said that he was surprised by the massive success of GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour, which lasted for two and half years. "Anytime I play a gig, if there's three people in there, I'm, like, 'Wow! They came to see me play,'" he said. "Nothing's changed. I'm just always so grateful and astonished. Some of these gigs we played, a lot of 'em — most of 'em, if not all — were astonishing how many people came and were so into it." http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/duff-mckagan-says-axl-rose-has-come-up-with-some-magnificent-stuff-for-new-guns-n-roses-album/?fbclid=IwAR1d_JZGlL-2o7baaQM-MpsWqzbLTQi-_c7I8eVZ9OlV-4o3g7Cl5FQG4P0

    Slash recently spoke to Japanese music critic and radio personality Masa Ito of TVK's "Rock City" about the possibility of a new studio LP from GUNS N' ROSES in the not-too-distant future. "Axl, Duff, myself and Richard have all talked about… there's material and stuff going on already for a new record," he confirmed (see video below). "It's just, with GUNS N' ROSES, you don't go, 'Oh, there is a plan, and it's gonna be like this,' because that's not how it works. So, basically, the only real answer to give is we're hoping to put a new record out, and we'll just see what happens when it happens." FULL TRANSLATE

    This is our 11 wedding anniversary. We were supposed to celebrate in Firenze but my wife's been terribly sick for the last 2-3 months so we couldn't travel. Good thing is that she's been good for the last few days so we are hoping that we will be able to travel to my parents for Eastern, at least. Firenze can wait. 11 years . 11 good years. It tends to get supplanted by the tediousness of routine. Pressures at work. Kids. Family. But today we have the evening for ourselves. We are finally alone. We don't expect much. We don't take anything for grated. really. Not with her disease, but maybe just an embrace on the couch and watch some stupid shit as I get steadily more drunk. Just being together with nothing else on our minds than us. And just being happy because she is getting better.

    Slash gave another interview to a German newspaper. https://www.zeit.de/kultur/musik/2019-03/guns-n-roses-slash-gitarrist-interview/seite-3 The last two questions were: Until mid August you're on world tour with SMKC. Do you have plans for the time after that? Slash: when I'm back home, I will sit down with the guys in guns n roses and focus on a new record. You haven't worked on it yet? Slash: No, but I know everyone involved wants to do this record. We're talking about it and Axl already has a ton of material which he produced himself. I think we're in a phenomenal form to get started.

    At a GNR show I was sat next to a group of women, a real "ladies night' vibe. Got chatting with one and she looked at her watch and said "its about to start!" I mentioned the late starts and she got mad at me - like shooting the messenger. Got all in a huff and got her group in a tizzy. They decided to leave instead of wait. They abruptly got up and filed out, each one hitting me in the face with their ass and hand bag. About 20 minutes later the show started

    Ok - reading all these posts about the VMAs has me thinking back to Las Vegas December 31, 2000. This was a fun night. Backing up a little here, I had decided to fly to Las Vegas on my own as a 22 year old to see the return of Axl Rose. I was (and still am) a huge GNR fan at the time and spent a lot of my time on the Guns N Roses newsgroup (who remembers newsgroups?) and decided to stay with two guys that I met from the newsgroup: Dennis and Bob. My friends thought I was crazy to stay with people who I never met before especially considering the internet was much newer back then. However, there were so many of us diehard fans at the time that we had formed a strong bond it seemed. When I arrived in Vegas I met Dennis and Bob and three of us met up with the other fans that we had all been chatting with in the months leading up to the show (Ravi, John M, Jan, etc). We had a few drinks and then lined up for what seemed like 8 hours talking and most importantly standing (securitiy wouldn’t let us sit!) and finally we entered at around 3:30am and the show started. What a cool experience. My biggest regret is at the end of the show Axl slammed down his mic and it bounced right into my chest and I didn’t catch it. I looked on the ground for it and it was gone! The purpose of my post is first and foremost to see if any of these old fans are still around. I’d love to see replies from you. I also met a local Toronto fan (Vangie) and would also often talk to Rattus and John Mac. who had an awesome band in London ON I believe. There was also a dude named APoet from Louisiana I believe. Are any of you fans still here? Also Jeff Boreio (sp?) was the admin of the newsgroup at the time. Id also love to hear stories from other fans who were there that night. One of the best nights of my life! 🤟 Andrew

    According to Kenneth Ramone in facebook group "The Mysterious Axl Rose Society", Axl Rose appeared as a "special guest" in a new episode of Looney Tunes singing a brand new song called "Rock The Rock". He said that "his voice was in great form" and that he recorded all of it. Kenneth took the photos and did the post with the info.

    This sort of tough guy shit gets me down. The leading cause of death in men aged 20 to 30 is suicide. This sort of attitude of basically telling people to harden up is a huge issue in society. Depressed? Just cheer up. Anxious? Don't worry about it. This attitude belittles mental health issues and leads to people feeling that a condition they have, often caused by a chemical imbalance, is their fault. It's so easy to sit at a computer and be a macho man about these issues but you're really just displaying a major lack of understanding. A little bit of empathy wouldn't go astray - try to understand the difficulties other people can have in life. Just comparing Axl to other musicians who handle things better is not reasonable. People deal with things differently. Check out www.beyondblue.org.au Might be time to update your thinking. Can't speak for others but your tough guy act is pretty unimpressive to me.

    It's easy for some of us to sit behind a screen and type that sort of oorah stuff, but a lot harder to put it into practice. Now, let me preface what I'm about to say by admitting that I prescribe to the whole "confront and conquer" way of doing things. It's the way I've always done everything in my personal life. But I also understand that genetics and life circumstances play a heavy roll in my ability to do so. Axl Rose was an un-medicated, manically depressed teenager/young man who was raped by his father and persecuted by most of his family. He dropped out of high school and hitchhiked across the country before he was even a legal adult. Raised by the streets. Did gallons of drugs... you get the picture. He was about as far away from "mentally sound" as a person can get. By all accounts, he shouldn't even be alive. The guy even tried to kill himself once (could have been more, we don't know) by swallowing a bucket of pills. He was a mental headcase, with an itch for death. People like that? People who are mentally fucked up beyond all recognition? They don't see things like you do. Their reality is vastly different. It's not possible for most of those people to "wake up" and get their shit together. If they do, it's usually a case of luck.

    Interesting and... unexpected interview The article "Guns N' Neuroses" was in the September 1991 issue of Spin that was released just about 3 weeks before the release of the Illusion albums. The albums must have already been printed and packaged by then - or at least they were in the process of. So, although Axl seemingly had a problem with that article, it couldn't have been the reason for Bob being called out in Get In The Ring. Spin published the contract for the press in the June 1991 issue http://www.a-4-d.com/t3224-1991-06-dd-spin-magazine-no-appetite-for-criticism-guns-n-roses-contract-for-the-press and we know that the Get In The Ring rant was recorded in Toronto on June 6th 1991. That press contract wasn't something the band was secretive about, though. It was floating around since Rock in Rio, and the band had claimed (via Alan Niven) that it was aimed only at non-US publications, namely British ones. So, the publishing of the contract alone doesn't seem to me as enough of a reason for the attack to Bob Guccione Jr. I wonder if it had something to do with another article printed earlier in Spin and with the author Danny Sugerman (for those who don't know, Sugerman had worked with the Doors since he was very young and later he became their second manager; later in the 70s, he managed Iggy Pop for a period; then he became a writer and wrote books on the Doors, most notably "No one gets here out alive"). Sugerman was interested in GnR and started writing a book, but, according to Alan Niven, the band was opposed and wanted nothing to do with it. At one point Sugerman had a conversation with Axl (mostly) and Izzy at a bar, and then wrote a story for Spin (which was also a preview for his then forthcoming GnR book) that was published in the November 1990 issue: http://www.a-4-d.com/t554-1990-11-dd-spin-magazine-bad-to-the-bone-axl In March 1991, Alan Niven did an interview with the L.A. Times, where he defended the press contract, and mentioned Sugerman's story in Spin as an example of the band's distrust towards the press: http://www.a-4-d.com/t2465-1991-03-17-interview-with-alan-niven-in-los-angeles-times A look at Spin’s feature story on Axl Rose, titled "Axl Comes Clean to Danny Sugerman," offers an intriguing glimpse at the often messy aftershocks of a celebrity profile. According to GNR manager Alan Niven, the piece was “full of inaccuracies and self-serving embellishments.” [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] Sugerman, though, blamed Spin for editing his piece and misquoting both him and Axl: Danny Sugerman: “I don’t blame Alan for being upset. [...] Spin rushed the story out two months early and they totally misquoted Axl and me. They never showed me a final draft of" the piece, and they didn't make most of the corrections I’d suggested. In fact, they took sentences I’d written and put quotes around them and attributed them to Axl. Ϊ was livid about the whole thing.” [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] L.A. Times asked for Bob Guccione Jr's comment on Sugerman's accusations: Bob Guccione Jr.: "Actually Danny came in wildly late with his piece. His story was the only story in later than mine. We only made so many changes because the piece wasn’t very well written. We never changed any of Axl’s quotes, not a single one. The only fixes we made were so Danny’s language would be more understandable. Afterwards we discovered that the best part of his story [an account of a police raid on Axl’s apartment] turned out to have been lifted' straight out of a People magazine story. So I had to run an apology in the next issue of Spin saying that we’d run portions of the People story without attributing it to them." [L.A. Times, March 17, 1991] Then there was some bickering between Alan Niven and Danny Sugerman. Sugerman fired back at Niven and Guccione Jr. and said that Niven was upset because Axl had spoken to him: Danny Sugerman: I’m not sure whether being called a liar by Alan Niven and Bob Guccione Jr., two of the sleaziest people in the music business—a business with no dearth of sleaze—is either the biggest insult or the highest compliment I’ve ever received. Despite such ambivalence, I’m prompted to inform readers that Guns N’ Roses manager Niven is upset because he couldn’t slop me from writing a book on his band and couldn’t stop Axl Rose from speaking with me or, for that matter, stop me from speaking with Axl, whom I found to be infinitely more sensible and intelligent than his manager. As for Guccione, all I can say is consider the source. We all know to what high moral standards this paragon of virtue aspires. [L.A. Times, April 7, 1991] Niven replied, saying that Axl, although displeased with Sugerman's piece in Spin, agreed to read Sugerman's book draft to check for inaccuracies: Alan Niven: In response to Danny Sugerman’s April 7 letter: 1— Two years ago, Sugerman contacted our (management company] expressing a desire to write a book about Guns N’ Roses. Our clients told us they wanted no part of it. Despite their wishes, Sugerman secured a contract from a publisher. Since our clients preferred to have any such volume compiled under other authorship, we were instructed to tell the publisher and Sugerman that they would be denied any access or endorsement. 2— As for Axl Rose’s meeting with Sugerman, Axl elected to deal with the inevitable. He decided out of responsibility to his following to read the manuscript in order to extinguish the inaccuracies he anticipated after Sugerman’s piece in Spin magazine. What's more, Axl is quite capable of recognizing an exploitative sycophant when he meets one. 3— In regard to Sugerman’s slur, I am prepared to have any aspect of my business investigated by anyone at any time. My firm prides itself on its integrity and ethics, and our reputation is unimpugned. Check with anyone who is actually a part of the business (as opposed to being an opportunistic parasite). [L.A. Times, April 21, 1991] A few months later, after Sugerman's book was released, Axl would confirm that he initially had a problem with the Spin article and Sugerman, but then Sugerman agreed to let him proof read his book and they were "friends now": Axl: I didn’t really ever do an interview with Danny [Sugerman]. Danny and I are friends now, but I talked to him for 15 minutes in a bar and that story came out in a magazine a few weeks later. [...] [The book] wasn’t authorized, but I proof read it ‘cause I got a copy right before it was about to come out, and I just went back and changed... Danny agreed and worked with me on just changing the facts, [like] if he said “Izzy and Slash” and it was actually Izzy and I. We changed those things. But I didn’t change any of his opinions. It’s a really interesting book and it’s kind of flattering to be, you know, compared, and have, like, this college thesis written about you, and your place in the world, and rock ‘n’ roll, and Greek mythology. But other than that I just wish it would’ve been more fun for people to read. [Rockline, November 27, 1991] So, since Axl was in good terms with Sugerman and he liked his book, he probably believed Sugerman's accusations against Bob Guccione Jr about the Spin piece and in general. (Slash, on the other hand, was furious about Sugerman's book: Then there’s an unauthorised biography by erstwhile Doors hagiographer Danny Sugerman, called Appetite For Destruction: The Days Of Guns N’Roses. “I’m gonna kill that guy,’’ fumes Slash. [The Guardian, September 12, 1991]) -------- Axl also said in 1991 that the rant was Duff's idea and Tom Zutaut endorsed it: Axl: "Get In The Ring" was a song that was… basically put together by Slash and Duff and… I came up with the… with the low vocal part. And Slash and I wrote that part together. We wrote different verses. And we wrote a whole song that when the whole band actually had the song together, the words didn't fit the arrangement of the song. And so, we were in Toronto, playing a show in Toronto. And we had one last song to re… to finish recording, that was "Get In The Ring". So, we went in the studio and just kind of started putting things together. And then Duffdecided that I should express my feelings about how we've been treated by the press, because that was his initial concept for the song, and that I should just go for it. And I was kind of like: "Are you sure? You sure I should do this?". And then Tom Zutaut, of Geffen, was there and he was like: "Go for it." So I got behind the mike and went for it. And everybody was really happy and we just decided to do it. [WNEW, September 9, 1991] He repeated that on Eddie Trunk in 2011 and also implied that it had to do with record label politics (favouring Rolling Stone over Spin) which he had no idea of at the time.

    Let’s be REALLY CLEAR - having the slightest urge to regularly share a bed with a child you have no familial relation too, free of any sinister context, is quite simply (and fucking obviously) NOT a thing. Let alone with multiple random children (...oh and who mostly happen to be of a similar physical type). Seriously WHAT THE FUCK.
