    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"

    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/

    How can nerds be worried about the new Terminator being a "feminist" movie when the whole series is built on the shoulders of a strong female character that is the main character in 3 movies and a TV series and even in the movies that she isn't in, her presence and values are still integral to the plot and story? OH NO THIS SERIES ABOUT A STRONG WOMAN HAS STRONG WOMEN IN THE NEW VERSION. Lmao. Fucking goofs.

    People want this absurd mash up of an album with 20 different musicians. Isn't one of the main gripes of CD was that it was so in-cohesive just for that reason?

    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 just posted this in the the "There Will Never Be Another GN'R Album" thread, but the mods, admins and I thought it might be good to have a thread discussing all of the rumors that keep bubbling around lately. Here's the post I made in the other thread which seems like a good starting point for this new thread: Just an FYI for everyone-There seem to be more than the usual amount of rumors being shared here and elsewhere lately. I've personally heard everything from "New studio album coming with an announcement in January!" to "there's a live album coming with some bonus studio tracks" to "the only thing coming is a live album and a studio cover or Witchitaw Lineman" to everything in between.The sources on these things range from the semi-reliable; "this guy was right about (insert rumor here) in the past" to the ridiculous; "a guy from another board knows a guy who told him".Either way, I'm hoping where there's smoke there's fire. I would LOVE for a new studio album from GNR to be in the works and for it to be released in 2019. Personally, I have zero interest in a live album and/or a few studio tracks. I would really, really want a full, new, studio album from GN'R but that's just me.Most importantly, I'm just hoping something happens. The most frustrating part of these situations is when nothing actually happens. Then our "insider" and "folks in the know" get to fall back on the "Well, that was the plan but things changed" excuse which is so tired and played out already.

    Are you serious? Do you think for a Broadway actor who does the same show every night it isn't a lot of work too? For any band to go out and put on a show, let alone a 3 hour show it is a lot of work. Give credit where credit is due.

    so, the band knows how it feels to be ripped off.

    Maybe Axl is just letting him use the studio for a new Slash solo album ... Playing the ultimate troll on us

    It'd be sweet if GNR put half as much energy into releasing new music for their fans to buy as they do looking for lawsuits.

    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.

    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 know this is the era of fake news and all, but tbh I find your reactions pretty poor. I know you're not an official news outlet and I don't know what was accurate in that video and what wasn't, but I think you could address the alleged inaccuracies instead of name calling, no? Your reaction is similar to the reaction of so called Axl nutters when people complain about Axl's voice: 'Then sing it yourself if you think you can do better.' That's just nonsense.

    Hey everyone, I just read in the paper here in NY this morning that at The Tribeca Film Festival this month there's going to be the premiere of a new Shannon Hoon documentery that is composed completely of the "home videos" he shot of himself throughout his career going right up till the day he died. It says there are no interviews or voiceovers from anyone else, just completely Shannon speaking in his own words and shooting the footage. I'm a big Blind Melon fan too so it sounds really interesting. For those who aren't it mentions that there is also footage of him backstage in Los Angeles hanging out with Axl and Slash in the movie. Don't know if that's the only footage with Guns but thought I'd spread the news because it will definitely be footage no one has seen before. Lets all hope it's not just a six second snippet !

    Awkward when Axl gives Slash a tour of the vault and he sees Paul Tobias sat there listening to the re-recorded Appetite on his Walkman.

    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

    @sidman69, that's one of the more sensible thoughts you seem to have had, as you don't reserve time to learn truthful information but tout your show as being something that's true, which it isn't. And sorry to deny you a glimpse at any channel of mine. I can't boast of having one. I just find it amazing how someone, anyone, can commit as much time to a series, more or less entirely prefixed as "The True Story of..." and not to have taken the required time to make it as such, and instead strikes back with a seemingly arrogant posture instead of appearing open to intelligent debate or informative instruction. You did provide some enlightening non-GN'R or non-pre-GN'R member band Ole information, but once the main focus, his legacy in Guns, was skewered everything else suddenly seemed undermined and delegitimized. @RussTCB I'm very happy to aid in presenting and reinforcing facts.

    I was at the recording session yesterday. Was pretty insane. A black bus pulled up, and Slash, Duff, Izzy walked out and into the house. They sat in the studio and wrote for a bout 4 hours, just spitting ideas out. They broke for lunch and sat around the kitchen table telling war stories of the Hell House days. It was glorious. Lots of laughter. Then they went into the studio and belted out about 7 or 8 new songs. They did them all in 1 take basically. Forgot to mention, Mike Clink was there behind the board. Have to run, will report what happened at the rest of the session in a bit ...........

    I swear, if Izzy came back and they called it the "Split The Loot Tour" I would overpay for a ticket based on tour name alone.

    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
