  1. I wouldn't say "like a bitch", but Izzy didn't want to commit to VR, didn't want it to be a big time band and casually left the scene when they went in a direction he wasn't into - which is consistent with everything that's been said of Izzy.
  2. It seemed like they had any number of people they hung out with throwing in ideas here so they didn't specifically hire someone to write stuff for them. I feel like the Chinese Democracy delay was mostly Axl not feeling mentally ready. I know there were some legal things to straighten out but Axl seemed like the type that wouldn't be able to focus on writing if there was any GNR related lawsuit unsettled that had no barring on his ability to put new music out in the meantime.

    Well it's 33 years later and they're pushing 60 years old so maybe what their idea of "rock n roll" is today isn't what it was in 1985. And yeah, it seems like common sense to hire people you enjoy working with and get along with rather than an obnoxious crackhead or a guy who seems to find conflict in every band he's in.

    In almost any realistic way you look at it, yes. Though I'd replace "buy" with "hire".
  5. Oh I always thought it was a CD era quote for some reason. Either way, it's a quote he made 30 years ago, I'm not holding him to it at this point.
  6. Wasn't the "bury Appetite" quote in context of wanting the new GNR to be even better than old GNR? At this point, it is what it is. They're pushing 60. There were a lot of things they could have/wanted to do together or individually that didn't happen the way they wanted it too. The made peace with each other, they're playing again together, the tours are more than successful, the shows are well received.

    As opposed to bringing people into his band that'll cause friction? And it's pretty well documented that Axl's a pretty loyal guy, maybe just not to the people you want him to be loyal to.

    My guess is he either said something since then to piss Axl off, he pissed Slash/Duff of during the VR years, or Axl/Slash/Duff just figured he'd eventually piss someone off and felt it best to leave him out. Plus, Axl's pretty loyal to his crew and there wasn't an opening for a drummer, I guess.
  9. The point is you can put Axl Rose on a shirt because he's Axl Rose and people know/care who he is. You could put Alder on a shirt, have Alder wear it and put "my name is Steve Adler" on the back and people would still wonder who he is.
  10. We don't have to use t-shirts at the mall. We could use, say, Axl fronting one of the highest grossing tours of all time while Adler plays drums in bars with whatever singer that looks or sounds like Axl. Or how your average person knows who Axl Rose is but wouldn't know Steven Adler and Matt Sorum weren't the same person unless they were Celebrity Rehab fans.
  11. I'm just using it to point out that Axl Rose is a well known, iconic legend and Steve Adler is something less than that.
  12. Axl has an official shirt in the mall, bought it last year. And I didn't say anything about Adler until the absurd comparisons to Axl were too much for me to resist.
  13. When was the last time you saw a Steven Adler t-shirt at the mall? The current line up has 3/5 of the original members, how is that not GNR?
  14. Their 20 year feud was either caused by or intensified by things they may or may not have said about each other written in the media....or they've manage to make peace with each other by believing that. I don't see what's wrong with them protecting themselves from that happening again. I mean, I know, "they're so corporate" now but they're also grown ups now.
  15. Axl's making zillions of dollars because Axl Rose is a rock icon, Steven is not. Axl presents his band as GNR because it is GNR and he's in the band, Steven is not. Axl can't sing the way he used to, Steven can't talk the way he used to, things happen.
