  1. Ask Axl, Duff os Slash to use their bathrooms, they don’t have to share with no one.
  2. OMG there’s no real bathroom in the stadium?!?
  3. I’m hoping Mexico gets something new, anything. The crowd would go crazy. If not, that’s ok, they’ll get a pretty good concert anyways.
  4. Another wave of copyright strikes?

    That’s just ridiculous. SOYL is my favorite this leg, especially because Axl and Slash are sharing the mic on the chorus. I can’t find any video.
  5. We don’t care about the casuals, we’re the crazy internet people. 😂 They could play SCOM, the casuals leave and then the acoustic set just for us!
  6. I HATE This I Love with all my heart. 😄 I hope for the next album Axl drops that obsession with the epic long dramatic songs.
  7. Thanks! After so many years of GNR debates, you become a lecturer 😊 Well it’s possible that he wanted to just make an impact, be outrageous. I’m VERY critical of Axl’s behavior, but from everything I’ve heard and read about him, my perception is that he never was a racist, homophobic, whatever, but someone with a lot of anger inside of him, so maybe that stuff sometimes would manifest in a wrong way. I don’t know, I’m just speculating. I wish they would play an acoustic set, just for one show, to change things up a little bit like the old days.
  8. Sure, no problem. I think some songs have potential, but I don’t like the final product. Axl has a tendency to get lost, make everything too big, dramatic and overproduced, which I don’t like at all. He lacks in objectivity and that’s why he works great with Duff, Slash and Izzy. I love the Illusions, it’s the album that made me fall in love with the band, but not so much the drums, which I think still has that 80s drums sound, but the albums are great anyway.
  9. It’s a thin line where you can’t scape the times and technology you have available and can make great use of it, but also not exaggerating too much so it sounds dated the next year. That’s what CD and Hardschool are for me. It’s so dated and it represents a sound that back then was already not very tasteful. The Illusions drums also bother me.
  10. Axl's St. Louis Rant Before YCBM

    Besides being as important for the band’s existence as any of the other guys, Izzy is a great songwriter and wrote amazing songs with Axl, they’re a great match. I love his Rolling Stones style, his sense of humor, his laidback attitude, his coolness...I could go on. As anyone else, he has his problems, but it would be great to see him back because of what he brings to the table. But that’s life, I’m happy with what we have and I like Fortus, but he’s definitely no Izzy.
  11. OIAM is a hard one. They’ve justified and explained the song through the years and still defend its existence - Duff talked about it on the RS podcast. I don’t think any of them are racists or homophobic and I guess when Axl wrote the lyrics he had some anger towards some people because of his personal experiences, so it seems that he had some mixed feelings and did not express himself in the best way. The lyrics are well written because he’s a great lyricist, but I definitely don’t think it’s a cool one. It has so much space for interpretation and it often puts the wrong message out there, even if it is sung by a character as they’ve stated in the past. I don’t think it has any space in the world we live in today - not that it had once, but the boundaries were very different. The music was controversial back then and surely is even more now. They are very different people these days, Slash has said recently that he’s ashamed of some of his interviews from the past, which is great because they were not the most intelligent, sensitive or mature people back then, so I’m sure they would do it in a different way today. Regarding the use of specific words, for me it’s very simple: besides the fact that private conversations are not made for public consumption, doesn’t matter what it’s about, if any word is offensive for someone or some community, I won’t use it, not because I’m trying to be politically correct, but because why should I? For me It’s like saying “thank you”, that’s what you do in life, you just treat people with respect.
  12. Axl's St. Louis Rant Before YCBM

    You know those youtubers making videos like “reacting to xyz”? Axl should do a video “reacting to my old rants”! That would be amazing! Just imagine his face when he sees stuff like that “I saw that show in Toledo”. 😂
  13. Quick question because I don’t know where that came from: why do we think it’s a fan reporting the videos? because meegan said she would check what was going on and then she closed the comments on that post. weird.

    Yes. I can hear two layers of Axl’s voice: his live singing and also him doing the backing vocals, just like they did in the album. I suppose it’s Melissa controlling this recording?
  15. 10/13/19 - Manchester, TN - Exit 111 Festival

    Axl’s voice from the album in the background (sorry, don’t know how to explain)...it’s Melissa doing that, right?
