    The way ticket sales are going it seems that a GN'R show is the safest place to be right now.

    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/

    MYGNRFORUM, We greatly apologize for the inconvenience for the down time of late. We know everyone is excited about the recent developments and want to talk about everything that's going on. To give everyone a better picture of what happened and what could still happening, allow me to explain. This forum costs a lot of money to run. Sometimes advertisement dollars and the few people who join up to become Club Members help cover monthly costs. But mostly this forum loses money on a month to month basis. It's generally not more than $20-$30 and hence I don't mind footing the bill to ensure that Guns fans have a small corner of the web we can call our own. However, on occasion, whenever a big development occurs, the forum gets swamped with tens of thousands of new or returning visitors that requires far greater hosting services than what our current hosting plan affords us. Some times, like the 2016 Troubadour shows and the following reunion tours, the increased traffic sustains itself long enough to cover the increased hosting costs. And just to let everyone know, hosting costs for a forum like this one can get expensive very quickly. During the Troubadour shows and for a few months afterward, it cost over $1000 USD a month to host this forum due to the massive influx of visitors. The forum was generating some profits back then and as promised when I purchased the forum back in early 2015, those profits were used to pay for prizes, from concert tickets, books and t-shirts, for members who entered into our contests. The problem arises when news or activity develops and traffic peaks for a short period of time and then quickly drops off to our regular levels. What follows is that our hosting costs jump dramatically for the entire month despite the fact that the increase in the number of simultaneous users peaks for a very short period of time. Our hosting provider works on a two day rolling average, hence if our rolling average hits a certain threshold, our hosting costs jump dramatically. This has resulted in me paying $200-$350 a month out of pocket to keep the forum up and running a few times during the year. Not something I like doing but it doesn't happen too often so I accept it as the cost of keeping the forum going. I've read assumptions that I make money when the forum gets busy. Actually, just the opposite happens. Generally, I lose money when the forum gets busy as the increase in advertising dollars from the increased traffic falls short of the increased costs to host the forum. On Thursday we saw a dramatic increase in traffic, with the number of simultaneous users triple our usual average. If it was any other month I likely would have swallowed the costs and hoped traffic would sustain itself to generate more advertising dollars. But due to personal matters that involve much of my budget tied up for for the next month or so, I can't afford to cover the financial losses for month. I wish the recent developments had occurred any month prior, but everything happened at the worst possible time for me financially. So going forward you might find the forum inaccessible if I find we're likely to exceed our current hosting plan. I do apologize for the inconvenience but at this point I must prioritize the financial well-being of my family over uninterrupted service for the forum. That said, if something major were to occur, such as a new song or new live show that would generate sustained higher traffic, then we would upgrade our hosting service plan and hope advertising revenues offset the increased costs. This forum isn't going anywhere and we'll be here when something major happens. But as I manage a large financial development in my personal life I would appreciate some understanding, cooperation, and patience if the forum is temporarily out of service. Thank you again for your continued support of this forum and I look forward to getting everything back on track as soon as possible! Thanks, Downzy

    Okay, we're going to put pause on this conversation for awhile. This thread has become pretty ugly and I think some time off is needed for everyone (including myself). A couple of things... People can believe what they want in the absence of any clear communication or statement by the band or management (Beta's comments notwithstanding). We have made numerous overtures to band management that this issue requires clarification on their part and they have chose to remain quiet publicly (again, save for Beta's comment that I would surmise was not fully informed at the time she made it). They have mentioned a few things "off the record" and I feel obligated to respect that fact despite the total lack of respect shown of late to this forum, its staff, or the online community by management. I can say unequivocally that the LLC used to take down videos last year (spring of 2018) was connected by GNR or GNR management and was co-opted by an individual who I won't name here (but really, we all know who I'm talking about). When this was brought management's attention, the LLC was immediately shut down. Obviously this did not solve the problem as the rate of takedowns grew exponentially using various trade organizations like the RIAA and IFPI. And to provide a little context, when this was brought to management's attention, one of the first questions we got back was "What is the IFPI?" There are working theories on how all of this transpired. Personally I do not subscribe to the notion that the individual in question was given direction by management to take down the videos. But others, including those on our staff, hold different views. What we do know is that an individual used an LLC once owned or controlled by elements of GNR to take down videos. This individual is in communication with the band management via email and perhaps other methods of communication. A member the band's management has publicly defended this individual from the allegations with respect to the recent removal multiple videos on various social media platforms. We also know that the individual responsible for at least some of these take downs have publicly and privately claimed to be working with the support of band management (though, I highly doubt those claims; I've always thought, regardless of what one thinks of band management, it would just seem beyond the imagination that they would authorize this particular low-life to do anything on the band's behalf). We know that other than Beta’s public defence of this individual, the band nor management have not offered much else with respect to clearing up this matter. So I'm going to ask everyone (including myself) to take a few days away from this matter. It's an incredibly frustrating situation that should not be happening. But this is GNR we're talking about. I've learned a long time ago that the best recourse with this band is to take some time off when things don't make sense. There will be other things to cheer or criticize down the road. As destructive as all of this has been in terms of fan relations, it's not worth spending weeks upon weeks yelling at each other over. Temporary (or perhaps permanent) disengagement is really the only therapy that's going to work at this point.

    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.

    The rock guys remain completely untouched by the Me Too movement. In part because it was always part of their persona’s in the first place and in part because the insane groupie scene muddied the waters to an crazy extent. Duff climbed into this shit of his own volition because he is the most image hungry guy in the group. Duff’s “persona” is very important to him and his persona is that of a college educated dude who started a wealth management group to help other musicians and spends his time being a good husband, great father, and punk as funk. In reality of course, he has no college degree, his wealth management company never existed or even got off the ground, he’s been married three times and he’s using his wealth and parenting skills to turn his young daughters into Instagram-y Rockstar/models. His punk as fuck aesthetic is simply that, an aesthetic- wearing leather pants in front of his mansion/private jet/yacht. Duff is pretending the 80's never happened but Duff pretends a lot. He's actually kind of sad. He works his ass off for this persona because he is the forgotten member of the Big Three. It’s really more the Big Two and some other guy.

    With any other band, it might mean "Hey we know the fans are talking about new music. And where's there's smoke, there's fire" meaning that new music is on the way. With GNR, it probably just means that whomever runs their social media just heard that phrase for the first time in their life. Then saw that pic of Slash and used it as a caption.

    As long as Izzy doesn't say anything, he can still be the fantasy Izzy that people here make him out to be. What do we know for a fact about Izzy? That he left them before, that he doesn't tour (extensively) and that he doesn't like the circus of a giant GNR world tour. But somehow people are convinced Izzy's not on a huge world tour just for monetary reasons People believe what they want to believe. And Axl saying Izzy's Izzy is twisted in something negative. As for Duff: he's a great guy, he tours, is nice to fans, does charity, releases new music, talks to the press. But no, here, he is the big evil guy they have to shit on 24/7 while Izzy who's gone AWOL for years, is god. Lol. This isn't a knock on Izzy, btw, you don't have to hate Izzy to like Duff/Axl/Slash/whoever. Just like you didn't have to pick either Slash or Axl's side back in the day. You can just like them all.

    Reopening this thread that @sofine11made yesterday. We were in contact with Fernando directly today. He was asked 3 times throughout the conversation if the reddit account was his, but he chose not to answer that question during the course of the conversation. So... due his dodging of a direct question (THREE times!) we'll just assume the account is his.

    Slash was on Trunk a couple hours ago on SiriusXM. Slash: "We're just doing this one run in the states and a couple dates in Mexico end of this month into November. That's it for Guns for now, and I think we have something coming up in March as far as touring is concerned. But then, obviously, everybody knows that we're working on new material, which is really exciting, and so, that's really primarily what the focus is. There's nothing in the Terminator movie, by the way." Trunk: "Duff has been out with his own record ... Where are you at with Guns N' Roses new music? Are you all working individually? Has everybody gotten together? A song, an album?" Slash: "I have nothing to tell you information-wise other than no, it's not that. Everybody has been sort of like, when we're in town, working on it. Then when we're out of town, obviously not." Trunk: "Would you like to do a full Guns N' Roses album?" (as opposed to a single or EP) Slash: "Everybody wants to have a full album released. I don't think that's really changed all that much. There's a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than ... you sort of look at that preliminary release a little differently now. At the end of the day, we will ultimately release a full album." Trunk: "On Guns N' Roses with the live shows coming up, I know you didn't start rehearsals yet, but is it basically gonna be more or less the same sort of set and what you guys have done in the past, or for these shows, are you working up some different things?" Slash: "There's a couple different things that we're talking about doing, that are sort of in the works to do. That we're planning on doing. So, I'll just leave it at that." Trunk, after the interview, about the news that a new GNR tune won't be in Terminator: "I'll give a little asteriks on that. About a week before it was announced that Slash was back in Guns N' Roses, true story, he called me. Not texted. He called me privately. 'I don't know anything about this Guns N' Roses stuff that's going on.'" (Trunk laughs) "So take that into the equation ... he threw up some serious smoke and mirrors on me at the time ... then a week later, the Not in this Lifetime tour was announced ... He's done that misdirection shit to me once or twice before."

    You know how GNR could stop leaks? Go ahead and release music that your fans will happily pay for.

    After much listening to fellow members and discussions amongst the Mod staff concerning the recent policy changes around posting links to unlicensed content, we've decided that the outline provided below is really the only course of action. To begin, the forum will not create a private or separate area for members to post YouTube links. This option actually creates more problems than it solves. First, it isn't full proof and the deadbeats responsible for this nonsense would likely access it at some point. The mod staff do a great job of cracking down on alt accounts by and large, but we're not perfect. It would only be a matter of time before the GNR deplorables that have terrorized the GNR fan community for over a decade would breach the walls and bring the section down. Second, the creation and allowance of a private section creates a liability issue for myself as owner of the forum and for our current hosting provider. Currently we cannot be charged or found liable for links or content if we demonstrate that best efforts are made to ensure it doesn't appear on the forum. Someone posting a link to unlicensed content on here doesn't necessarily expose myself or the forum to civil legal action or liability since we are merely required to show that reasonable efforts were taken to remove the post within a reasonable amount of time. Establishing a separate section of this forum with the sole purpose to circumvent the DMCA exposes the forum, the host provider, and myself to legal risk. Quite simply, a private section shows intent to evade copyright violations. Our hosting provider, if they discovered that our forum was structured to enable our members to post links to unlicensed materials, would surely drop us as a client. And while I see it as extremely unlikely, it could potentially open myself up to civil liability should the day GNR wanted to come after me personally (GNR management has already expressed to me in writing that our allowance for the discussion of the recent leaks put us in the same legal grounds as those who distributed those leaks). Some of you might want to "fight the power," but that's easy to say when it's not your potential financial survival at stake. As much as I would hate having to remove links to videos of taken by fans at GNR concerts, it's not worth jeopardizing the longevity of the forum or my own financial well being. The risk certainly isn't worth it over a band like Guns N' Roses, who have, by an large, become nothing more than business that prioritizes money making opportunities above all else. I'll repeat: the main priority with GNR these days is to make money. It's become my impression that concerns about the fans or music in general are a distant priority, if even at priority at all. So where does that leave us? Pretty much where we started last week. We will not allow direct posting of unlicensed content on this forum. We will no longer allow posts that link to unlicensed content. What we well allow, until told otherwise, is keywords by which people, with a reasonable amount of intelligence, can used to discover the content themselves. We ask that posters refrain from naming the source or platform when providing keywords that describes the content in question, but I think anyone with some level of familiarity with various video sharing platforms can figure out where to search using the keywords described. We get it: it's incredibly annoying, frustrating and disappointing, but it's the best of the bad options at this point. As we saw with the leaks, a tremendous amount of discussion is still possible on this forum without having access to it via the forum. At the end of the day, it wasn't YouTube videos that built this forum (YouTube didn't even exist when this forum first started). It was the community of passionate GNR fans who wanted a place to discuss anything related to the band and the music. The forum will continue to provide a platform where fans can learn, discuss and debate any topic that comes to mind. If this forum needs YouTube videos to survive then it's probably not worth saving at this point. Again, we apologize that it has come to this but there's not much more we can do or say on this matter. GNR seems to be on the forefront of having some real pieces of shit as fans. As much as I feel sorry for the community as whole who find themselves continually and repeatedly disappointed from the same old bullshit, I also feel sorry that there are people out there who have so little in their lives that taking away joy from others is the only thing that gives them purpose. How little in one's life does one have to have to make taking down fan videos and harassing online communities like ours a priority in their own lives? It really is sad that such sad little people exist. But that's the world we live in unfortunately. I do agree with many that it's a shame that GNR management doesn't feel compelled to do much or communicate their position on the matter. But understand that even though we're all dealing with it, the problem is larger than GNR and what they are likely able to do help fix it. The system that manages content rights and rights holders is severely broken. Until such time when anonymous losers can't lodge a copyright complaint, that only copyright claims can be filed and acted upon by the rights holders, there's not much we or the band can do. We're going to pin this discussion in the D&N section so that it can be seen as many members and visitors as possible. Feel free to discuss below.

    I think I have a good perspective as I saw NILT 6 times, including night one in Vegas and the amazing Apollo show in NYC. Here is my takeaway from the show. I’m not going to even mention the setlist because I already know that is a hot topic. And yes, I now don’t care or at least just am not hoping for new music. Whenever it happens it happens, but I am now over it too. The tour merch did not have the NITL badge. It said Tour 2020. Snoop Dogg was the most exciting opener I have seen, even more then then Lenny Kravits at Met Life Stadium. I am not a musician, but the band seemed amazing last night. Like mid tour form. Frank I really like now, I think he fits right in. The only 2 songs I didn’t like his style were KOHD and YCBM. An older guy next to me said this was his 36th GNR show, and it was “ the tightest the band has ever been “. Maybe he was drunk or just filled with the excitement of Super Bowl Weekend in Miami. But those were his words. They were by far the best I have seen as a band. Axl at the beginning of the show sounded the best I have ever heard him live. Hands down. Maybe it was the sound system ?? His voice was really good and in lower register the first half of the show. From the middle on, started to get a little in the higher register, but still was totally fine to me. The guy is in his 50’s and overall I think he killed it. Slash is why I am a superfan of the band. He was just slash. I never personally saw him not have a great night in my 6, now 7 shows. He was great as usual. Hi light for me was his Solo on Chi Dem. I am not even a fan of the song. Richard is a fantastic guitar player, I think he is great, I think he knows his role in the band and does it well. Is he the Izzy songwriting low key heart of the band ? No. But he’s the next best thing, and definitely a better guitar player. Intro to Better with Slash, Duff and Richard in a tight little circle was bad ass, would love to find a video of it. It looked and sounded great. I don't like to nit pick, but Slither and the Kobe tribute were the low points. The energy was good, I was in section 106, pretty close on Slash side, and I didn’t see 1 person not having the time of their life the entire show. I had no premonition about writing such a puff piece review of the show, but I think they killed it. Amazing I went to this show thinking this is the swan song for me with them, and it made me like them even more. Sucks they won’t give us music, and they probably have albums and albums of material they could release. Whatever, it is what it is.

    Anyone who was talking bad about the crowd in this thread obviously wasn’t there. The crowd was massive, and LOUD, and the people in the front had been waiting 4+ hours in A TROPICAL STORM to see Guns. I truly think people don’t realize that last night after GNR came off stage, through the night, we got hit with so much rain and wind that I haven’t had power at my house since 4:30 this morning. This show could have not even happened, but it did! i personally was about 2 rows back, right under Axl. As I’ve already mentioned, there was some sort of magic, or aura in the air last night. Im not sure if it was the fact that it had been raining ALL day, but as soon as GNR came on, it just all of a sudden stopped and cleared up, or something else just clicked. Axl was having so much fun running from side to side on the stage. He sounded and looked SO happy and was smiling and waving to the crowd. The little pocket of people around me was singing And dancing and jumping to every word to every song. When they ripped into Dead Horse we all went crazy and started clapping and encouraging Axl to go for it! We were singing the lyrics super loud and he was dancing and feeling it and Slash was smiling. I wish there was a video, you can kinda see it in Meegans but they look looser, more comfortable. I’d like to mention that there was no ego thrust in the middle of the stage, so Axl and Duff spent a LOT of time standing and interacting with each other directly in the middle of the stage. Some highlights- 1. The absolute POP during Welcome To The Jungle. You can see and hear it in Meegans live video. 2. During DTJ, Axl backed off on the intro and kinda lost the intro and Slash accounted for this and played an awesome little flurish to which Axl came running out into singing Double Talking Jive. It was awesome. 3. This crowd was bonkers. During Rocket Queen, some woman under the influence of some type of drug made her way all the way from the back of the crowd pushing towards the front. She made it to the rail and pushed everyone off of the rail. Security had to literally pick her up out of the crowd and take her away. Fortus was watching it as it happened, but I think word made its way around stage because before YCBM, Axl said something along the lines of “we are getting a little rambunctious out there. Why don’t we try to calm things down with this soothing music” 4. Shadow Of Your Love is so good!! I have some very high def video of Axl absolutely killing this song. My new favorite. 5. Civil War > Dead Horse > Coma. come on!!! How can you complain about the setlist when it’s like that right now!!! I think I peaked during this. I was waiting for Locomotive to make an appearance and it looks like it was scratched from the setlist? Im glad we got Dead Horse though. I think this was the show they wanted to make it their bitch, and wouldn’t be surprised if its dropped after this and only added at the last show. 6. Here is my stance on the covers argument: I agree, some of these songs maybe should have been dropped by now. But for whatever reason they keep playing them. But if this is what we get, so be it. The covers in the encore maybe were overkill, yes. BUT, apparently Axl said Seeker was an Audible and that they “called a quick team meeting and we are going to play another song.” So we could have left with 24 songs instead of the 25 we got, and that means you can tell they were having fun and wanted to stay a little longer. 7. As for the sound/timing/band issues, I honestly think this is Guns N’ Roses in its final form. This band is just SO good. So fucking good. Everyone around me was into it the whole 3 hours. Not many acts can do that these days, trust me. I think this show will go down as one of those secret gems that people who were there will remember forever. Axl sounded great. The whole band was having fun. Theres not much more you could ask for. There may never be a bootleg or full videos from this show thanks to the rain, but that is what makes it great. Those who were there know! To address the Axl being angry incident, Axl chucked his regular mic into the crowd as the band left the stage after Paradise. When they came back on stage after to do the bow, there was no 2nd mic. Axl was looking around like a mad man for a mic and he finally found one and it wasn’t turned up so he threw the mike towards stage left and then walked up to the front with the rest of the band, bowed 2 times, then took his hat off and threw it stage left as well. Seems like it was just a situation of trying to get a mic in a small amount of time and he couldn't. oh, and uh. I have a friend who was backstage and sent me a picture of the unedited setlist with the alts on the bottom. As of last nignt, Hard School is still on the alt’s setlist backstage and not presented to the public on social media. I think we can stop considering it a troll at this point. i’ll post some photos and videos when I can figure out how to

    "I just don't think he wanted to do it. We tried to make it work, but it just didn't" Lolduff.... I'm sure Izzy would've done it if you guys were willing to pay him what he's worth.

    *Posted in main section with permission from RussTCB* Hi fellow GN’R fans, I’m a longtime MyGNR member, mostly lurker, and have been a member of the other forums since their inception. Back when I was a kid, I used to be a part of the AOL message board community. Perhaps some of you were as well. Anyhoo, I’m a lifelong musician/songwriter and also work as an attorney in California. A couple of years ago, I had a pretty serious health scare involving six months or so of some pretty intense hospital treatment. I’m alright now, but it definitely made me re-evaluate my life and my priorities. As a result, and with the help of coming into a finite amount of money that I wasn’t expecting, I decided to quit my law job for all of 2018 to live off my savings and get my entire catalog of music recorded that I’d written throughout my adult life and never really had the chance to pursue properly due to always working and/or being in school. It’s multiple albums’ worth of material, and the first batch is being released today. I also recorded several tribute covers to the bands who inspired me the most as a musician. Guns N’ Roses are obviously very high on that list. I chose to cover “Locomotive” in part to show how much I love the band, and also because I’ve long considered it to be the great white whale fan favorite that perhaps never got its due. I of course had no idea they’d start playing it live again a few weeks back. In fact, I heard my final mastered version for the first time at the exact moment they played it for the first time in Kansas. I got my completed mastered album delivered to me that weekend, listened to it for the first time that Monday night, logged onto the internets right after, and lo and behold, they played it! You just can’t make this stuff up. I wanted to share this with you guys since this is the place I’ve gone for a decade or longer at this point to hear from GN’R fans who are just as passionate about the band as I am. Whether it was posting a dingy garage-recorded cover of “Pretty Tied Up” in 2007, the Axl chats in 2008, or being at opening night of NITL in Vegas and posting a review, I have a lot of fond memories of this place. The album and these tributes were recorded without any sort of expectation of money or fame or anything like that. My music is just that important to me, and getting it done really turned out to be good for my well-being. I’ve never been happier. It’s safe to say that life’s a lot easier to go through without a head full of unfinished business. With that, I hope you guys get a kick out of this! Cheers.

    Why? Don't you think it's personal? It only concerns Steven and his family and friends. No one else. His family told someone he's totally fine. So they obviously don't want to make a big thing about this. Why should GNR make any reference to it? The only thing that matters is Steven will be fine. Anything else is really none of our business at all. This is exactly what's wrong with all that social media shit. People think they're entitled to know everything. The family said he's fine. What more do you want? Even if it wasn't an accident, it's not our business. I don't get how some of you think at all.

    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. The dates are semi-accurate. Song Original live debut Original last played Times played original Post-2000 live debut Post-2000 last played Times played post-2000 Times played total Appetite For Destruction Welcome to the Jungle ^ 20-Jul-1985 17-Jul-1993 400 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 526 926 It's So Easy ^ 23-Oct-1986 16-Jul-1993 296 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 520 816 Nightrain ^ 20-Dec-1985 17-Jul-1993 212 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 520 732 Out ta Get Me ^ 26-Jan-1986 17-Sep-1992 187 1-Jan-2001 29-Nov-2017 181 368 Mr. Brownstone ^ 11-Mar-1986 17-Jul-1993 365 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 519 884 Paradise City ^ 10-Oct-1985 17-Jul-1993 340 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 522 862 My Michelle ^ 4-Jan-1986 30-Mar-1993 172 1-Jan-2001 29-Nov-2017 195 367 Think About You ^ 26-Mar-1985 10-May-1987 50 1-Jan-2001 20-Dec-2006 49 99 Sweet Child o' Mine ^ 11-Mar-1986 17-Jul-1993 321 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 526 847 You're Crazy ^ 3-May-1986 3-Aug-1991 163 2-Nov-2006 12-Apr-2014 26 189 Anything Goes *^ 26-Mar-1985 1-Aug-1988 67 n.a. n.a. 0 67 Rocket Queen ^ 20-Sep-1985 29-Jul-1992 153 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 448 601 GnR Lies Reckless Life *^ 11-May-1985 15-Apr-1993 35 n.a. n.a. 0 35 Nice Boys *^ 11-May-1985 26-Jun-1993 45 23-Jun-2007 11-Feb-2017 24 69 Move to the City ^ 26-Mar-1985 7-Sep-1992 145 n.a. n.a. 0 145 Mama Kin ^ 28-Jun-1985 6-Jun-1992 80 12-Mar-2012 12-Mar-2012 1 81 Patience 30-Oct-1987 17-Jul-1993 250 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 409 659 Used to Love Her 30-Oct-1987 17-Jul-1993 110 19-May-2006 8-Dec-2018 180 290 You're Crazy 10-Feb-1988 17-Jul-1993 19-May-2006 One in a Million 30-Oct-1987 31-Jan-1988 2 n.a. n.a. 0 2 Use Your Illusion I Right Next Door to Hell 11-May-1991 3-Aug-1991 12 n.a. n.a. 0 12 Dust N' Bones 9-May-1991 7-Jan-1992 46 n.a. n.a. 0 46 Live and Let Die 9-May-1991 17-Jul-1993 186 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 515 701 Don't Cry (Original) *^ 26-Mar-1985 16-Jul-1993 146 14-Jul-2007 1-Nov-2019 301 447 Perfect Crime ^ 31-Oct-1986 8-Aug-1992 44 n.a. n.a. 0 44 You Ain't the First 11-May-1991 17-Jul-1993 59 n.a. n.a. 0 59 Bad Obsession 9-May-1991 6-Feb-1993 126 n.a. n.a. 0 126 Back Off Bitch *^ 11-May-1985 7-Jun-1991 36 n.a. n.a. 0 36 Double Talkin' Jive 20-Jan-1991 17-Jul-1993 189 1-Apr-2016 2-Nov-2019 175 364 November Rain 29-May-1991 17-Jul-1993 182 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 514 696 The Garden 23-Feb-1993 27-Apr-1993 27 n.a. n.a. 0 27 Garden of Eden 23-Feb-1993 25-Feb-1993 2 n.a. n.a. 0 2 Don't Damn Me n.a. n.a. 0 n.a. n.a. 0 0 Bad Apples 23-Jan-1991 11-May-1991 2 n.a. n.a. 0 2 Dead Horse 20-Jan-1991 17-Jul-1993 52 23-Oct-2019 2-Nov-2019 5 57 Coma 4-Jun-1991 10-Apr-1993 5 8-Apr-2016 2-Nov-2019 165 170 Use Your Illusion II Civil War 7-Apr-1990 6-Feb-1993 138 4-Dec-2011 2-Nov-2019 267 405 14 Years 11-May-1991 31-Aug-1991 30 31-May-2012 24-Nov-2012 6 36 Yesterdays 14-Jan-1988 17-Jul-1993 33 4-Jun-2014 1-Oct-2019 97 130 Knockin' on Heaven's Door ^ 19-Jun-1986 17-Jul-1993 423 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 422 845 Get in the Ring n.a. n.a. 0 n.a. n.a. 0 0 Shotgun Blues n.a. n.a. 0 n.a. n.a. 0 0 Breakdown 6-Dec-1991 13-Dec-1991 2 n.a. n.a. 0 2 Pretty Tied Up (The Perils of Rock n' Roll Decadence) 20-Jan-1991 6-Apr-1992 31 n.a. n.a. 0 31 Locomotive (Complicity) 17-Jul-1991 20-Feb-1992 6 7-Oct-2019 23-Oct-2019 3 9 So Fine 5-Dec-1991 16-Jun-1993 45 n.a. n.a. 0 45 Estranged 20-Jan-1991 5-Jul-1993 85 2-Oct-2011 2-Nov-2019 324 409 You Could Be Mine 20-Jan-1991 17-Jul-1993 269 1-Jan-2001 2-Nov-2019 414 683 Don't Cry (Alt.

I tried my best to only include full songs, not intro's and snippets. But it's hard to distinguish based on the info we have. The list of live covers is, obviously, incomplete. Ps. Pro tip: You can just copy-paste this table to Excel and sort by most played, last played, first played etc.

    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.

    So my beautiful wife @Whiskey Rose and I were digging thru some old photos and stuff today, and we found these old GnR ticket stubs. Hers is on the left from Toronto, mine on the right from Saratoga Springs NY, 3 days apart. It would be 26 years until we knew each other, yet we both held onto these stubs. We are gonna make a cool photo/ framed thing with these, because for us, it all started because of GnR... Anybody else have old school ticket stubs to post? Or GnR love stories? 😆 There’s gotta be something...

    Others have mentioned this, but I'll say it again: Guns N Roses fans want to buy Guns N Roses music. We would gladly pay them for new music if they ever chose to sell it to us. The fans are NOT the problem in this equation. Period. If this band would just sell its music to its fans, all of this would go away in a heartbeat.

    "It is tremendously disappointing, sad, and unfortunate that a record executive involved with the band in their early years found it appropriate to auction off the unreleased materials owned by his former employer." You know what else is tremendously dissapointing and sad? This band lol

    Just want to clarify something- I saw someone made a post saying I have strong connections to the band so I want to clarify that I actually do not have any connection to the band at all. This news is true and I do know that for a fact but it's because of others who do have connections with the band that I was able to confirm it. Might seem like a small point, but it's important to me. I don't ever want to give the impression that I'm more connected than others or any sort of "insider"
