  1. Can you stomach Aerosmith ballads?

    Exactly. Any fan of Axl Rose has exactly zero ground to stand on when it comes to Aerosmith.
  2. Can you stomach Aerosmith ballads?

    So I guess that means Axl should have been done decades ago since he took a couple of falls on the Use Your Illusion tour?
  3. The final bonus episode is out. This has been fun, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not happy as hell to go back to one episode per week lol
  4. After YEARS of putting it off, I finally started my own music podcast! You can listen to the first episode right here: https://anchor.fm/infectiousgroovepodcast/episodes/Side-A--Song-1---Pilot-ea929m?fbclid=IwAR3-Bratci1Az0KabR6uCWPB8x82cbRa4R1KkQ1sUksZDRKwmiFbQ7ux8sg This is my very first attempt at recording so it's probably got some rough spots lol. We're shooting to put out a new episode every Monday, so I'll share a link in this thread every time there's a new episode. If anyone has the time to take a listen, I'd love to hear any and all feedback
  5. COVID-19 Outbreak

    As of yesterday, they finally allowed the corporate casinos to reopen in downtown Detroit. The corporate casinos are actually wayyyy more cautious than the native American ones, but either way, it's cool to have more "normal life" back.
  6. Can you stomach Aerosmith ballads?

    Aerosmith is an excellent band with an incredible career. Quite possibly the greatest American rock band of all time. Steven Tyler is a monster frontman who still sings at an unbelievable level. On topic; they actually have very few ballads I don't like.
  7. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Did a search and couldn't find a thread dedicated to vinyl LPs in general. Does anyone collect and/or use them? About 70% of the music I listen to is on vinyl these days.
  8. https://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/the-rolling-stones-steel-wheels-live/ I didn't realize this was coming out on CD and vinyl as well. Looks like I'll be picking up the vinyl for sure.
  9. I always remain in a state of hoping I'm wrong. Unfortunately, GN'R continually proves me right and it's such a bummer.
  10. I am 1000% sure the trademarks will be used for everything EXCEPT new music. Probably more cheap merch or some sort of high end fashion line like the BS they had during the launch of NITL.
  11. May 30, 2020 London, GB Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
  12. Damn. It's a tragedy either way. Was just curious.
  13. I haven't caught up on the story yet. Is this an accident or act of terrorism?
  14. 100% true for me. I remember back when the NITL Tour started, I thought we'd at least get one single out of the deal. I went to 3 shows and truly enjoyed myself, but I was hoping that forward progression would occur after they lapped the world. As soon as they started lining up a ton more dates with zero communication about the future, I started to get a sinking feeling. Once I came to the realization that this whole thing was a soulless cash grab, I was just so bummed. That's another big thing for me. All the big talk Slash & Duff put out ultimately meant nothing because now they just submit to Axl's way of doing things, sleep walk through shows, cash a check and move on. It really is. I know you're a newer fan but just imagine having watched this all develop from the very beginning. If you could go back in time to catch up with me walking into the shows I went to in 91, 92 and 93, you would NEVER have got me to believe that GN'R would end this way.
  15. I VERY much appreciate your continued listens and support The show seems to be doing very well overall, just not so much interaction here for whet ever reason. Either way, I'm grateful for how much you've listened and supported
  16. Most GN'R fans outside of the forums have absolutely no clue who Fernando and TB are. The only reason most of us know about them is just because we've followed the band so closely for years. Having said that, I have seen plenty of dislike expressed toward GN'R on social media. If you ever do poke around other GN'R forums, you'll find we're "nice" compared to what others have to say about Fernando and TB lol. As far as Slash & Duff go, it seems to me that they are are only involved with GN'R for the paycheck. So my guess is that neither of them couldn't care less how TB handle GN'R business as long as they get their regular pay check.
  17. Copyright Strikes....

    Legality was never in question. It's the bands right to take down their copyrighted material if they want to. The fact remains that Fernando continues to outright lie about not knowing who was involved with the take downs. Not only does he know exactly who did it, he's also aware that the people who did it claimed they were working on behalf of GN'R and TB.
  18. I feel like @soon is the only mygnr forum member still supporting the show, but I'll keep promoting it here anyway lol
  19. For sure. I get what you're saying. I've resigned myself to the "stand back and shrug" crowd but every so often I see these conversations pop up and it makes me juuust angry enough to chime in.
  20. This isn't a shot at you at all, but those aren't "answers".
  21. You know what Fernando does have control over? Not acting like an entitled asshole and insulting / talking down to fans. If he just talked to us like we were real people and even gave a remote shit about what the fans of the band have been through, our attitude would be completely different. Dude seems to get a thrill from flaunting the fact that he was born into a super privileged world. Good for him, I guess? Doesn't mean any of us have to like it or even accept it. Sometimes I feel like GN'R fandom is a sick cult and the more people that escape, the better lol
  22. Fernandos attitude wasn't THE determining factor for me, but it was certainly the icing on the cake. This shit where he acts like he has to go to reddit just to talk to fans of GN'R is such horseshit. Just more "woe is me" bullshit. There are a TON of outlets where GNR or their management could have a balanced, honest discussion with fans of the band. The openly choose not to use those routes though. So instead, all fans of the band get is condescending posts like these on reddit from Fernando. Non-answers, insults, double talk and just plain lies thrown at a loyal fan base from a "manager" who has the nerve to refer to anything to do with GNR as "we". I'm stunned to breeze through this section and see people still try to defend Fernando and/or put blame on a fan base who's been nothing but abused for literally decades now.
  23. Yeah, August through October is going to be that way due to Record Store Day getting split up into 3 different days this year.
