  1. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Jesus was only 33😄

    Thank you, spike the mic.
  3. The UFO thread

    No dice, aliens only drink imported.
  4. 26 years ago today- the end

    Preceded by many wasted years, different definition.
  5. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Man, these ticket prices are insane. I saw Guns/Aerosmith in '88 and the ticket was like 22 bucks(approximation, give or take a dollar or two). I feel like Dana Carvey's angry old man from SNL.😄 "we used to put our faces right against the speakers until our eardrums bled, and we liked it".
  6. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    Totally agree. I posted something the other day about certain bands that had the look and sound but never quite reached the level that Guns did. The Cult exemplifies my point. Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy were/are awesome and Matt complimented them well. I think the biggest reason they weren't mega successful was because they never had that big hit, like SCOM. She Sells Sanctuary was probably the closest they got and it's a great song.
  7. #WokeAxl

    Yeah, even Syd Barrett probably thought that was messed up.
  8. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    No, I guess I shouldn't have used the word "true", my bad. The studio felt that they needed a portion of the movie that featured an exorcism. That's the end of the movie where George C. Scott's character confronts the demon.
  9. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    No doubt, some bands had the look but not the chops or vice versa. Guns was the total package. There were other bands who had both but never quite reached the rarified heights.
  10. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    I never considered that, it's a very plausible explanation and probably accurate. Thanks.
  11. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    Yeah, I shouldn't have said "always" because I wasn't really sure. I just wonder why he does it, maybe it's easier to sing it that way in a live setting. Who the hell knows.
  12. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    I tend to like a lot of what Axl does in concert as far as doing it differently from the recorded version. But I've always hated the way he does the "whoa whoa whoa whoa" part live. He has always done it as far as I know and I don't know why in the hell he chooses to do it.
  13. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I'm glad I had the under for 1.5 on how many songs Axl would let Steven play.😄
  14. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I don't know who BloJo is but that's hilarious.
  15. Funniest lyric

    Me too, but how would that place be considered a paradise? 😄
  16. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Fortus and Frank are in the same league strictly from a playing standpoint. I pretty much agree with the other aspects though.
  17. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    Yeah, the third one was good but it could've been much better if it wasn't for a lot of post production tinkering. They pretty much changed the entire ending because the studio brass felt the movie needed a true exorcism. It comes off feeling forced and just out of place. But it does have the great George C. Scott "I believe in the filth" scene, so it wasn't completely wrong.
  18. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    This to the hilt. It's hard for a lot of hardcore fans to grasp but it's undoubtedly true.
  19. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    Great point about the tone of the movie, that along with the atmosphere creates an unsettling experience. And it takes its time in doing it, which I think was great. In fact, the true possession scenes don't begin until about 90 minutes into the film. But I think the aspect that often gets overlooked are the performances. They're all pretty much perfect. To the point that it's hard to imagine anyone else in those roles. The one character that I always thought was awesome is Burke, the drunken director. Some of his lines are classic. Like "there's an alien pubic hair in my drink". And he had an obvious disdain for the German butler.😄 Jack Mcgowran was great, he died before the movie was even released. Anyway, there are so many things about this movie, it's really fascinating to delve into. But be warned if you do watch that sequel, it really is bad. I like watching it for the comedic value and the fact that Richard Burton is in it.
  20. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    I've had few movies effect me as much as The Exorcist did. It's not only one of the scariest movies ever it's also just a great one. Have you seen Exorcist 2: The Heretic? It's terrible and unintentionally hilarious. Richard Burton did that one strictly for the paycheck. But the Exorcist 3 is actually good, William Peter Blatty directed it. George C. Scott, Jason Miller, and Brad Douriff are excellent in it.
  21. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    Great one, Jill Clayburgh, Ned Beatty, and Patrick Mcgoohan were awesome too. I love it when Pryor says "Well, I left my Jag in Kansas City".
  22. Well, I'm obviously a Guns fan and I'm also a Bond fan, so why not.😄
  23. Sister Sledge says you're absolutely right. I was going to make a Manson family reference but thought that might be in bad taste.
  24. Why did Dio hate Vivian Campbell so much?

    Dio was standing on the roof to distract from the fact that he was 2 and a half feet tall.
