  1. I think Axl is more subdued here because the band is in NYC for the first time. If what gnrontour says is true then he sat out the show the night before in NJ to save his vocals for this show. It obviously meant a lot to him and perhaps he was soaking it all in. He was playing in NYC, people paid to come see his band play... its a dream that any musician has growing up.
  2. I haven't visited this forum in a long time either, but came through the other day. Then today I came across this full 87 show you posted. Thank you so much! Just curious do you remember who you bought the VHS from on eBay? I would love to have some insight into who they were. Maybe they have more crazy stuff (not necessarily GNR) lying around too. Considering no one really knew this existed up until you posted the teaser, I am amazed that some random person on eBay had this tape.
  3. Perhaps the elusive 2002 VMA Rehearsals? I know they're probably boring and garbage, but I would love to see them still
  4. I am late to this discussion but I totally remember it. Some one found the backdoor to it so that we could all see it. Then it vanished. to the original post I was around during the gnronline days and I loved it. It was truly the wild Wild West. I believe I was WAR on there. I used to go there daily for any kind of news of which 99% was false. Where was Trump when we needed him?! I used to have constant wars with sweetbreakdown on there. Anyone remember FelixTheCat? Many thought that was actually Axl. i remember the day I went to the forum and it was inexplicably gone. I was so confused. After that I frequented the GNRbar and then HTGTH. Was never the same after everyone splintered. Having the cast of characters on that site was what made it great. We can never replicate that ever again even if the official GNR site forum was made free. I remember those Live Era shirts. A bunch of people got them, I believe it was a contest they had on the site. I did buy a shirt on clearance from the official store for like $10 they had the new band listed on the back of the shirt. I sold it to troccoli a few years ago actually!
  5. Yeah this thread is a prime example of why I've stopped visiting forums as much as I used to. I've wasted precious time already reading and responding to it. Joke's on me
  6. Wow this is exactly how I feel. I love the UYI albums and find them infinitely more interesting musically than AFD and Lies. AFD is arguably my favorite album of all time, but UYI are much more complex, I don't think there is any denying that. I know there is no way to prove it, but if the piano was stripped from GNR I don't believe they would have reached the status of rock legends. UYI pushed their boundaries musically and the piano was a part of that.
