  1. Play is a great album. I can't remember where I read it, but I think Axl was a fan of Animal Rights (The Moby Album)-it came out in 96-I bought it at the time after reading Moby was going to produce GNR-I really didn't care for it that much.
  2. I think he was quoted in the Spin magazine article back in 98 or 99. I remember Moby saying also that he didn't want to put his own career on hold for 2 years to produce Guns. Axl also shot back I think in the Rolling Stone article "while I appreciate all the publicity, shut the fuck up already". I think Moby was talking about it a lot back then.
  3. If they hire another keyboard player, are people suddenly going to watch him instead of Axl, Slash, or Duff? Probably not. David Bryan has been in Bon Jovi forever-people aren't going to see him either, but both are brought back for every tour.
  4. I remember Blind Melon was going to play here in Cleveland on the tour where he died, I almost was going to go-I think either the venue had a cancellation notice on the door, or it was in our local weekly magazine which always listed upcoming concerts-I can't remember which. It was so sad and shocking to see that. The No Rain video was on MTV all the time when it blew up, probably as much if not more than the Guns videos at the time from the Illusion records, or it at least felt like it. I was just watching the Woodstock performance of No Rain-it actually wasn't too bad-I know a lot of people hate it because apparently he was on LSD at the time, and he was getting out of control. Don't Cry would not be the same without his voice.
  5. Totally agree. I hate the long sing a long versions. If they dropped it from the setlist I would never miss it. I know very casual fans want to hear it and sing along tho
  6. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    This, and Contraband was a much better record than Chinese Democracy. I still think CD is good, but Contraband is better than any release by Axl, Slash, or Duff since the Illusion albums.
  7. I was at the Eagles of Death Metal show in Cleveland in 2006. Sebastian Bach came on, and after he finished, a lot of people assumed Guns were next. We sat through EODM and Suicide Girls. You could just feel the crowd groan. Some people left, a few were saying "never again" as far as going to another GNR concert. One lady was taken out on a stretcher, not sure why. We left the arena between 2 :30 and 3 am, I wasn't sure we would get a cab home. Funny enough, I went to the Ford Field NITL tour kickoff, AIC finished, not long after the lights went down-people were going "no fucking way". You could see people running to their seats not expecting Guns to go on so early. I think I did see Del James walking around on the floor for the 2002 Detroit show before the band came on.
  8. I was at the Detroit concert in 2002 lol-I remember this is when they messed up Patience, and Axl just threw his mike up and walked off, the lights came on after that, or soon after. I honestly wondered if Axl was going to pull the plug on GNR after that. I came back in 2011, it seemed like they came on just as late. Bumble was standing on the stage for what seemed like 15 or 20 minutes with his guitar. I think that concert finished at 2:20 a.m.
  9. Guns were seen in 1992/93 as a bloated big cliché rock band in the eyes of bands like Nirvana, Faith No More, ect..-it's different today. This is when Guns had the horn section, backup singers, piano ballad, ect. As far as VR, I just could not see Mike Patton singing Fall to Pieces or It's so easy on a nightly basis-it just seems like a bad fit. I would have liked to have heard what kind of music they made, tho.
  10. The Dirt (Motley Crue)

    The movie is well shot-I did enjoy it. The way they got back together with Vince is 100 percent different than how it's described in the book. I figured that might happen, it happened in the Queen movie also. Someone else pointed out they have Vince's daughter born during the Theater of Pain era while she was really born in 1991. I didn't catch that.
  11. The Dirt (Motley Crue)

    Good eye-noticed Slash, but didn't catch Steven, I'll rewatch it at some point, for sure
  12. Wasn't part of the story that Hetfield wanted Faith No More and Axl wanted Body Count to open (not sure if it's mentioned in the video). I also thought I read years later, oddly enough, that Slash had asked Mike Patton to front Velvet Revolver after Scott left, which Mike turned down
  13. I like it, it sounds like his 93 solo album but better. I didn't care for Loaded but like this
  14. The Dirt (Motley Crue)

    I thought it was a fun movie-I liked it a little more than I thought I would-the ending is totally different from reality from the book, and how they got back together with Vince. I figured they would do that-they kind of make it seem like Vince was out of the band 6 month when it was really 5 or 6 years-they really don't show how much they didn't get along in the 90's-especially Tommy and Vince-they basically have a group hug and tell Vince how much they want him back. I can only imagine how a GNR movie would be lol. I'm not even sure if they mentioned Pamela Anderson in the movie, for instance, but it was a 2 hour movie, so I understand. You watch it and are reminded about why Motley Crue were so huge. My gut feeling is that they tour again btw
  15. Back in Time: Las Vegas 2000

    I loved the 2002 Vma's, but I can understand at the same time people watching it and thinking "wtf is this". I always felt things were never right after Philly and the long break until 2006. I liked the lineup, but I went with my older brother to a 2002 concert, who said it "was good, but its just not the same without Slash and Duff".
