  1. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Contraband was better than CD....GNR were never the same after the 2002 Philly no show
  2. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    I'm no lawyer but I doubt he will have to change the name of the book. I'm hoping he has more on VR than Scott Weiland did in his book-he surprisingly had very little. Paul Tobias would actually be a fun read-I wonder if he ever pitched a book idea-I'm just not sure people outside of the boards or diehard Guns fans would have any idea who he is
  3. I loved the 2001-2002 era of Guns. I still love the MTV awards performance, I know a lot of people didnt. The US tour was coming up, and I thought an album was coming out very soon. It was really a fun time for me personally. I went to see Guns for the first time in Detroit that November. i love Tommy's solo stuff and will always go see him if possible if he is nearby. I'm glad i was able to shake his hand , tell him his album was great, and click drink glasses with him in the end.
  4. I almost went to that one, waited a few days and it sold out. I'd like to see him at a tavern or small club again. I went to see him open for the Lemonheads a few months ago but his set seemed it was like only 15 or 20 minutes
  5. Btw did say he had to turn down like 5 straight tours, as he has stated in past interviews. I sensed the frustration that they didnt release more music, not surprisingly. Tommy does seem like a nice guy overall
  6. He said he "was just really an engineer on those records" I'm assuming he meant the Queen records, but didnt ask him to elaborate
  7. It was cool to stand in a kitchen with someone you have seen play in arenas and on MTV lol. It wasn't a totally bad experience. I wanted to ask about working with Buckethead and the leaks, but didnt want to go full GNR fanboy on him. I do love his solo stuff out of all the GNR solo stuff. Worth it to see the concert in the living room, 70 or 80 bucks for the meet and greet, not so sure. But such is life. He did answer my questions lol
  8. Tommy had a concert last night in someone's living room in Buffalo. There was also a one hour "drinks with Tommy " session available before the concert to talk with Tommy, hear stories, and have his "undivided " attention. Got there at 6 on the dot, walk in, about 4 or 5 people were there. Host told me Tommy isnt there yet will be there soon. (I'm already thinking "wtf"). Tommy gets there at 615, kind of gets the lighting squared away in the living room , stuff like that. I believe 5 people had bought the VIP ticket, 2 of us were there, the other people were hosts, helping, ect. Some small talk about music -I get the feeling more of the people at his concerts are Replacements fans. Of course my obsession with GNR takes an opening to ask some questions. they were talking about producers. I ask about Roy Thomas Baker. Tommy says he could not wait for him to get fired. Hated working with him for a year and a half. Mother fucked him basically. Pompous , and other words. I asked if any of his solo stuff was intended for submission for GNR-said he gave a song which Axl sang vocals to that they did not or will not use. I cant remember how he worded it. Says he wishes he could get it back. You could see and hear the regret over GNR not working out like he thought it would when he talks about the experience. Seemed almost apologetic about how they tried, mentioning issues with management and record company. I wanted to ask more but he almost seemed uncomfortable talking about some of it, which I get , but I told him the band sounded great live when he was in it, which he agreed. It wasn't a bad experience, wish it was better organized (other people started showing up early during the meet and greet for instance) . I know meet and greets with bands are a pic then you move on , so I guess it's hard to complain, but not sure I would do it again. Also think they sold about 20 tickets too many , it was pretty crammed for the concert. Did say he and Axl left on good terms, as he has said before. I'm assuming the song he was talking about was Going Down? Or is that the Izzy song? I've been off the boards for the most part. Oh he did say he made good money scoring the Catch and Release movie, which I asked about
  9. Slash and Gilby

    This is something small and of course they worked together not long after, but I remember Gilby was touring for Pawn Show guitars and Slash had said in an interview he wasn't happy that he was doing Guns n Roses songs in his set. It sounds odd now, but I remember the only thing Slash did for Snakepit back then was a snippet of My Michelle. In Gilby's set he would start out doing the beginning of WTTJ but would go into It's so Easy. I actually think Gilby was still in the band at the time. This was in 1994
  10. Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis update

    Actually I had forgotten he was on the Col. Parker album with Gilby and Traci Guns which was an excellent album btw. I think he played piano on Gilby's Hangover album also
  11. Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis update

    I bought a ticket to see Billy Bob Thornton and The Boxmasters here at the Kent Stage in Ohio-it's coming up in July, and I could not remember the date, so I googled his tour dates to double check, and brought up an article, and Teddy is in his band (it's just Billy Bob, Teddy, and one other guy)-I didn't noticed it was Teddy before in the pic on the venue website lol. I always liked Teddy, especially from the Making of Videos, he had a lot of parts in them. He played on some of the Gilby records and side projects in the mid to late 90''s, and I kind of lost track of him after that. The funniest moment of him was Slash and Duff calling him on the phone at the end of the Making of Estranged, wanting him to go out drinking or to a strip club or something, and he didn't want to go, and Duff and Slash were bummed out lol. He also always had the big moment in Bad Obsession during the UYI tour in the early 90's. It will be nice to see him play. Funny enough, The Bacon Brothers are playing at this same venue a few weeks before or after, I think. The Billy Bob show doesn't seem to be selling that greatly-I wonder if he has a fan base of people who like his music, or it's just people wanting to see the guy from Sling Blade. His music doesn't sound too bad
  12. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I was pricing a flight and hotel coming from Cleveland to Vegas for a few days, on average it would be about 300 bucks-no doubt my ticket to the concert would be a lot more-I think I'll pass lol. So much for that idea
  13. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I will say the Venue in Vegas is great-there are no bad seats, IMO-it holds 4,000, so I would not stress out about trying to get something closer for more money. The stage itself is massive btw. Most venues in Vegas are that way, and people pay more for a closer seat when it's not necessary-a lesson I learned.
  14. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I paid 250 for Elton John at Caesars about 10 years ago lol-I cant remember what the cheapest was, around 100-I decided to splurge. FWIW they are on stubhub for 250 rn
  15. Duff's solo album Tenderness: OUT NOW

    Not bad, I like it better than Loaded-it's different than what he's done in a while. I agree Duff's voice can be a bit much over an entire album. I haven't bought the latest Slash album just because it sounds the same as the last few. Duff releasing this and doing the Illusion cuts takes me back to the Illusion days and when he released his first solo record I can't believe how many solo record and side projects I've listened to compared to official GNR albums from current and former band members.
