  2. http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/deal/deal-alert-guns-n-roses-mega-box/ The discounts have started with the above alert from Germany. Only a small discount for now, but I expect discounts to continue and ramp up through the holidays. When this was released, I predicted that we might be able to purchase it for around $500 USD by Christmas and I'm hoping that comes true.
  3. Ask and ye shall receive! Please post and discuss all GNR related but non official social media in this thread. I only ask that you keep it to social media posts. Please do not post weblinks to articles, fan art, memes or anything like that. Thanks!
  4. Lol, so double what it was last week?
  5. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I hear ya. For the record, when I talk about "Izzy's worth", I'm strictly speaking in the terms of the general public. Nothing.... and I mean NOTHING is right about how the general public perceives the value of art. Izzy is unfortunatley, no exception to that. His value should be as much or more than Slash but because the general public is dumb, he's not. I totally agree with you. Please read the above. I'm not saying that I think Izzy shouldn't be valued higher. You have to remember that the general public can't name more than half the songs on AFD, let alone tell you who contributed to what. It's sad, but it's a fact that all the general public cares about is seeing Axl & Slash together.
  6. I hear what you're saying but this point below is really accurate:
  7. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    He might be worth as much as Duff, but definitely not Slash. I'm not saying that's right, I'm just saying that's how it is. Duff came back for a run of shows prior to Slash and it had absolutely no effect on anything. The band wasn't able to charge any more for tickets then before that. The combination of Slash & Axl is all that's needed for them to play stadiums and charge what they do. That's been proven.
  8. These people (Alfred & mojo) aren't doing this because GNR reunited. They're doing it for a variety of other reasons, all of which add it to them having nothing better to do.
  9. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    That's the point; no one here is racist about Frank, regardless of what that user might think. No one has ever made a racist remark about Frank on this site.
  10. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Side note about Frank changing his play when Slash & Duff came back; I've never liked the way any of the new lineups ended Jungle, Frank included. So when we went to the show in Vegas I remember saying "Man, I hope Slash & Duff taught Frank the right way to end Jungle live". Sure as shit, they played the ending the right way and have ever since.
  11. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    That's exactly how it read to me; the implication was that the members of this forum don't give Frank a chance because of his skin color, which is not only incredibly untrue but extremely offensive to the user base here. For my part, I've seen a lot of people voice opinions against Frank and I've never once seen any user mention his color until today. To assume that anyone might not like him based on his color is just odd and offensive. Matt was my favorite until Frank came along. I really would like to hear more tracks with Freese so I can make a better judgment call on him.
  12. You seriously haven't heard about all of the YouTube videos that have been removed? There's a thread on it right on the main page. Check it out if you get a chance. If you don't have time (understandable), the short version is that a couple of "fans" that we refer to as Alfred and mojo have made it their business to get as many fan shot GNR videos taken off YouTube as possible.
  13. I'll cross my fingers for ya. I hope it gets to $199 so you can get those records!
  14. I just wanted to say again that Yield is a freaking masterpiece.
  15. No joke, I wouldn't be surprised if TB has some sort of parental controls on all of his electronic devices lol
  16. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Fantastic. Go ahead and take a week off from the forum. It might be a good amount of time for you to decide if you can post without insulting the forum or its members when you return.
  17. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Huh? Here's exactly what you typed "Frank is the Black Guy and so I never hear fans on this site rave about him." Not sure how you can claim you meant anything other than his race has something to do with it. Otherwise, why bring it up in the first place and / or say that's a reason he doesn't get praise on this site?
  18. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    You seriously think that people don't like Frank becuase of his color? What an unfortunate view of the world to have.
  19. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    No offense taken at all. I realize I'm very much in the minority, so I'm used to having my like of Frank questioned lol. Having said that, I can play drums a bit but I don't consider myself "a drummer", so I think that might have something to do with it. I just like the extra notes he throws in here and there which is the reason most people dislike him from what I've read.
  20. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    You bumped an old topic seemingly just to take a bunch of jabs at our user base. This part here has to be the most ridiculous, reaching, failed attempt at insulting our site and our users that I've ever seen. Oh and btw, as a huge fan of Frank personally (which I've posted about a lot on here), I truly feel sorry for you that you can't hear the difference between Adler, Sorum and Frank when it comes to drumming.
  21. Couldn't agree more with everything you said praising Pearl Jam. They're still enormous. They haven't "faded away" in any form of the concept. For the record, while their first 3 records get all the praise, I think their true masterpiece is their fifth album Yield. I'd encourage anyone who thinks of them as any sort of one trick pony to check that record out asap.
  22. I sincerely doubt their page will ever be any good. GN'R have a long and storied history of poorly misusing the internet lol
  23. If it hits the $299 mark, they won't need to promote it. There's tons of sites out there dedicated to informing people when things go clearance at really low prices. There's more than a few of those sites that are dedicated to just music deals. I'd be surprised if the $399 price hasn't made it to those sites yet. Even if it has, I feel like $299 will be bigger news on those clearance sites.
  24. Has anyone else watched this guys videos in the past? Here's a random one from about 7 years ago: The dude's channel is just awesome. Packed with tons of info, a lot of which I'd never heard.
  25. It's been listed as sold out many times on the US shop too. It always comes back, sits there for a long time, then gets discounted again.
