  1. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I don't think it's about his drumming, it's his personality and risk factor. Constant lineup changes in his band would suggest either he can't get along with people or people can't tolerate him for too long. I don't know how anyone can listen to him do an hour long radio appearance where he talks out of both sides of his mouth to appear to be grateful AND the victim and not realize that's not a personality you need in 2019 GNR.
  2. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    In all honestly, I'm not a big Alder fan, but the criticisms are mostly just pointing out why it's understandable if Adler's never brought back in full time.
  3. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    You keep conveniently forgetting that these are 60 year old men in 2019. Their wild rock n roll days are behind them and it would be sad and tragic if they weren't. The number of people who actually care if Adler is the drummer or not is far smaller than you think it is. There's little, if any, reward to taking the Adler risk.
  4. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    This would be the same Slash and Duff that Adler essentially said had had enough of him, no? Slash and Duff aren't stupid and they're not stuck in whatever 1980's time warp they would have to be in to think Adler is a must have.
  5. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Off the top of my head, he's a risk as far as his sobriety goes, and he's an obnoxious personality who's never one to keep his opinion to himself or refrain from crying victim on the radio if he doesn't get his way.
  6. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Adler's such a wild card you don't know what you'll get with him or what stress/problems he may add to a situation that so far seems to be running surprisingly smoothly. I just don't see 60 year old men who seem to have their lives and careers in order wanting to risk rocking the boat for little, if any, return.
  7. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    They're near 60 with families and kids with lucrative music careers....why do they need risk in their lives now? Izzy would be great to have in studio for writing but Alder contributes nothing that's worth the risk or headaches.
  8. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I don't like that Illusions has so many different sounding songs. It feels more like individuals pushing to get their shit on there than a cohesive band. Which is probably what it is, but, still.
  9. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Mine mostly fall under the umbrella than them not being obligated to do whatever we want them to. They don't have to change the set list for people watching every night through someone else's cell phone, they don't have to record an album if they don't want to or feel like they can't, they don't have to let Alder be the drummer and just hope he can handle it, they don't have to give Izzy money he's not entitled to and doesn't deserve. They play shows. If you'd like to see them play a show, you can buy a ticket and go. If you don't, don't. They sell merchandise. If any of it appeals to you, you're free to buy it. If you don't like it or don't want to pay what they're asking you to pay, don't.
  10. Yes it was a 5 - 10 minute walk straight down the street. Many of us managed to get lost on the way back though because it was a good show lol
  11. Halifax 06. I went with one group of friends, met up with another group of friends, and were meeting with another group of friends, to pre-drink in our hotel. The pre-party ended when everyone realized the opening bands must be finishing and GNR were about to come on. 3/4 of the party left but the 4 friends that believed me stuck with me and we went down to the hotel bar to keep doing tequila shots. I timed it perfectly, we left the hotel on that "let's party" high, walked right into the concert with about 15 minutes before GNR showed up, but were able to get like 3 rows back on the floor because so many people were wandering around with no idea when they should come back. It was a good time. I called my sister from the show and was surprised to find her home at 1am on a Saturday (because it was actually Tuesday) and I do remember being checked by security for anything with spikes on it or anything Slash related.
  12. So you didn't say he wasn't raped, just that you don't believe it?
  13. Let's not make "he wasn't raped because I say so" a thing.
  14. Which leads to the old philosophical question - if you release two albums and nobody knows or cares that you did, did you really release two albums?
  15. Izzy and Duff were both referred to as "special guests" when they appeared with GNR. So even if it feels weird, if Slash isn't in GNR and isn't rejoining GNR but will contribute to an album, he could be considered a "guest". Actually it's not bad promotion for him to be singled out like that.
