  1. Maybe enticing all of America with another Dr. Pepper campaign will do the trick
  2. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Pompeo had clowns to the left of him and jokers to his right but he somehow thought he would be the one to end a 50+ year old standoff...
  3. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I have no sympathy for Pompeo whatsoever. He should have known better all things considered. Not a huge surprise since his perspective on international relations is, in my opinion, pretty piss poor to begin with (see Iran Deal).
  4. I doubt it. It doesn't take much to get whatever chops one use to have to come back. It's muscle memory. I've been told that Axl plays piano at home a lot, so I don't think it's a matter of him losing his proficiency. Likely just a choice with respect to the setlist.
  5. US Politics/Elections Thread

    The entire thing was a farce from the get-go. Anyone remotely familiar with NK foreign policy would know how this would end up. Trump isn't the first President to have overtures thrown his way; but he is the first since Clinton to try to make something of them (though, Trump was willing to go way further than Clinton ever did with respect to legitimizing NK leadership). To be honest, Trump's mistake was thinking this could happen in the first place. His decision to cancel the meeting was the right call in that he couldn't ignore the statement issued by a NK official yesterday threatening the US. Granted, boobs like John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, and Mike Pence did not help the process; with Bolton doing pretty much everything he could to antagonize North Korea. But this was always going to play out the way it has, especially considering who Trump has speaking on behalf of U.S. foreign policy (i.e., Bolton).

    But does Trump still get the Nobel Peace Prize?
  7. I have it on good authority that this will only be played once it is confirmed that you are not in attendance.
  8. Since we have no members of the "radical left" that I can think of, I don't think you need to worry about offending anyone.
  9. Unless Axl has taken over Fernando’s email account, I’m 99.999999 percent certain it’s Fernando. Looks like he wasn’t able to respond this morning but we’ll keep the thread open should he find some time to come back today.
  10. Welcome back, Fernando

    Please keep your questions limited to this thread:
  11. I see that Fernando is back online so we'll open this thread again. Again, everyone play nice.
  12. Sorry, hate to do this, but we're going to lock this thread until we have some idea if and when Fernando can come back and answer more questions. We'll open this back up if we get word that Fernando or someone from the band is willing and able to come back. Partly my fault, but this thread is turning into a discussion thread rather than a Q&A thread and I'd rather keep things in focus. Hopefully there will be another opportunity to ask questions. In the mean time, feel free to start another thread should you wish to discuss Fernando's responses and the questions asked.
  13. There are many instances of when GNR have announced shows close to their actual performance date. I don't think it's unrealistic at all to assume that more shows might have been added since they've only played England once so far and there's only one date for this leg. It's not jumping to conclusions. There are contracts and very strict agreed upon rules on how these things are rolled out.
  14. Is it a cash grab if the demand is there? I mean, if millions of people around the world want to see this show, why would they not do it? Understand that the percentage of people showing up to shows the last few years who want to hear new music is extremely small. Think of a band you're a casual fan of. Would you want to see them and hear a lot of new music or would you want to hear the hits? I saw Metallica last year and I'll be honest that I sat down for most of their new material. Would have rather heard the hits. That's who 90 percent of the people buying tickets for the NITL tour.
  15. I think that's probably the best way to look at it, save for maybe Axl's failings. From a fan's perspective, yes, in the new music department there's not a lot there for us. But Axl is who he is and he's doing what he feels is best for him. We can disagree with his choices as fans, but ultimately it's his call.
