      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. Thanks. He along with the girls,earlier in the night just talked to me in downtown Buffalo due to my gnr shirt. All of them had never been here before. I figured a member of the band was at this hotel just based on all of the action and I was right. On our way there we stopped at a restaurant and he met Dizzy and was ecstatic from that. I didn't bother him as I have several photos already with him and I didn't want to be greedy.
  2. The kids I was with were very nice. The one kid barely spoke English,he thought the show was in NYC,arrived there from Colombia to find out it was in Buffalo and he still made it here the day before the show. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he'd meet Slash. Slash might have forgot it that night but the kid never will. To know that I played a small part in helping the kid meet his hero is good enough for me. You don't like to do it,cool. I do. No harm done either way.
  3. Uhhh,Slash is 50 something now so yeah,like most humans I'd expect him to be different than he was 30 years ago. If you want to chat with Frank,I'm sure he'd oblige you. One of the most famous guitarists in the world just isn't going to stand outside of his hotel and engage nerdy ass fans in a discussion about unreleased songs. In the past I have had long chats with Duff and Matt. Both were cool as fuck. But I'm sure there are days they don't want to deal with fans and that's their choice. I'll be 40 in a few years . I could give two fucks about social media likes,I do this because it's fun for me and has allowed me to meet people from all over the world.
  4. I guess it'd really suck for them if they had to go into the real world or the armed forces where people's lives are on the line yet they make little money and aren't asked for pics and autographs. Yes it probably gets old but it comes with the territory of being famous. Axl does what Axl wants. I've seen him just sign,just take pics and do both.
  5. Why should being turned down for a picture or autograph (as an adult,I can see it upsetting a kid) have any bearing on how much of a fan you are of an artist? Axl turned me down when we had him two on one last year in Toronto. That didn't make me any less of a fan. If Neil Young told you to piss off ,why would you enjoy his music any less?
  6. I thought I had Bucket on my list! I definitely met him 5 years ago but he wouldn't sign my Chinese Democracy vinyl

    Did someone already post the video where Axl was backing up and almost went into Slash. They both got scared for a second ,then smiled. That was awesome. I've seen 10 shows since April in Vegas and this was one of the best.
  8. Of course Frank! I knew I left somebody off the list!
  9. I met/have pics with Axl,Slash,Duff,Adler,Dizzy,Matt, ,Tommy,Brain,Melissa,Fortus,Josh Freese, Pitman,Dj Ashba, Bumblefoot,Buckethead and Frank. I also met Gilby and Tracii Guns but have no photos with them just autographs.
  10. Yeah Slash looks really uncomfortable here. He talked with us for a bit,signed a few things, thanked the fans for coming from so far away. I know you are probably just trying to keep up with your PUNK RAWK persona but if it makes someone happy to do this ,why do you care? I'll take the picture and frame it along with the ones I have with like 17 other GN'R members,look at it and smile and think of all the new friends I made and Countries/States I saw doing stuff like this.
  11. I never once said that. I'm owed a good performance if I buy a ticket and the quality of a performance in and of itself is subjective. Anything else like a picture or autograph is just a bonus. I've been turned down by Axl and Slash several times before finally getting them and not once would them saying no have any effect on my love of the music or them being my favorite band.
  12. It seems as though it is easier these days to get a photo with Axl than it is with Slash. I am still trying to get pictures with as many GNR members as possible. I am up to about 18 members or so now. Over the NITL tour I have had Slash tell me no for a photo around 3 different times. Hey,that's life and if that were my biggest problem I'd be a lucky guy. The night before the show in Buffalo I met fans from Germany and Colombia. When we saw Slash pull in ,he waved but went inside the hotel only to come out a minute later after my new friend yelled "Slash, I came from Colombia! " Slash still said no photos as he began to sign for the two of us that had items. He gave in to the photo after the girls from Germany and the dude from Colombia asked again. The whole thing only lasted a couple minutes but it made my day knowing I helped these kids meet their idol. I now just need a photo with Izzy and I'll have the AFD 5.

    Forget a week buy the day of. People will be dumping tickets on Stubhub for less than half price. Even now on Craigslist people are getting desperate and dumping for less than face value. I could care less how many people are there as long as the band puts on a great show. Also,huge bonus that Live is on the tour,I'll definitely be there early for them.
  14. It can be removed off of pretty much anything. He'd have to sign the To: through his name also that way when they wipe off the personalization, they'd be wiping his name as well. It'd be hard for Axl to tell who is a " real fan" in that situation. What's he gonna do ask people to recite the Coma lyrics before he signs? Speaking of Coma,all the people yelling AXL! reminds me of the women in the song saying "AXL,ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME AXL?!"

    How long til the people who were there say it was awesome and are then told how much it sucked by the people at home? "Ah,well you see I know you were at the show but I was on my keyboard furiously typing away and I noticed they played The Seeker yet again so in conclusion I had a terrible time streaming this free ,soundboard quality concert"
