  1. Axl didn’t http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/axl-rose-attends-korn-s-tour-launch-party-new-photos-available/ There’s always a GNR connection ...funny connection too is that both his manager and daughter live in Lafayette. Manager told me a story about meeting some of Axl's mom's friends.
  2. Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has a very important documentary coming out. LOUD KRAZY LOVE details the harrowing journey of Brian and his daughter Jennea growing up together with chaotic courage and unconventional faith. Far beyond a rock doc, this fearless coming-of-age story grapples with teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves. We often discuss the personal journeys of Slash, Duff, Steven Adler, and even West Arkeen on the AFD Show. How does Head's story relate? And in "Shotgun News" we discuss Duff's upcoming solo record and the rumor of a new GNR cover album!

  3. I will ask if/when the time is right Want to get Doug on first. FYI interviewing Brian "Head" Welch tomorrow and Doug Grean on Sunday.
  4. We'll do a part 3 down the road, maybe take requests for which pieces he should explain.
  5. Back in episode 82, we first met Arian Buhler. The artist behind the majority of Guns N' Roses' "Not in This Lifetime" lithographs, box-set, and Shadow of Your Love video returns for part 2, to dig deeper into his masterful, and highly sought-after, artwork. Guest co-host for this conversation is Rich from Japan. He is the owner of lithorati.com, an online database of all of Arian Buhler Design Studio's GNR work. Also the "Shotgun News" segment we follow up with Doug Goldstein's tweet to Fernando, and Alan Niven's reaction. iHeart--> https://ihr.fm/2CBVhPQ Spreaker --> https://bit.ly/2AQ2eKF SoundCloud --> https://bit.ly/2rlBYUk Stitcher --> https://bit.ly/2HnXGhC Google Play --> https://play.google.com/music/m/Dxdza4ucwrd3arwen3vtee6lyse…
  6. I was emailed this. Will address it next episode. Alan Niven has issued the following response to this story published today: https://metalheadzone.com/ex-guns-n-roses-manager-claims-a-satan-specialist-cast-spell-on-axl-rose/ STATEMENT: The former tour manager of Guns n Roses has an integrity that matches his math; my contract with Guns n Roses was finally signed October 1986. I had started working with the band in August. Mr. Rose walked away from his obligations to the extended contract in March of 1991. To my eternal regret I backed Mr. Rose in recording 'One In A Million'. At that point I still believed he was not a gratuitous artist in his composing. I still believed him to be an artist, for that matter. He did not wear Manson T.shirts under my watch. He did not wear T. shirts denigrating Christ. Furthermore Mr. Goldstein had absolutely nothing to do with the manner in which I brought David Geffen to the renegotiation table. I did not participate in those re-negotiations, or sign off on their content, since, dismissed, I no longer had responsibility for such negotiations. In that period I also supervised the renegotiation of the Artemis and Brockum contracts and directed Bill Elson of ICM to contract the initial dates of the upcoming tour. Without doubt we can all say that Mr Goldstein presided over the rapid disintegration of the band. I, myself, have no doubt my exit was designed to allow Mr. Rose, to take over name, copyrights, etc. depriving the rest of the band. The only people casting spells were Sharon Maynard, of whom I was unaware, and Mr. Goldstein, who directed her as to whom he wanted out of the picture. Yoda obliged by dismissing certain people's images to Rose, and Goldstein, who by his own admission, in a bizarre letter that was posted on the internet, paid her. In the end one usually finds that evil is actually more banal than we fear, and based in greed and ego. Didn't get an awful lot done after 1991, now did they? By contrast I took an unwanted band to Wembley Stadium, my last act being putting that London show on sale. I am long married to a light worker, renown in this area, my friends know my spirituality and that our home is full of positive spiritual talismen. By contrast, just last month I was warned that Mr. Goldstein was roaming the Southwest in a mobile home full of weapons. Do I think Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Rose are banal? You might ask that but I could not possibly comment, beyond saying ... "his statement is just crazy pants." Alan Niven I will give benefit of the doubt because you never know what someone's day was like, but...
  7. Danko Jones, the man and the band, have been rocking since 1996. From garage rock beginnings in Toronto, to touring 10 countries with Guns N' Roses...from Axl inviting Danko on-stage to perform with GNR, to Duff writing the forward to Danko's book, this is an interview you don't want to miss! Guest co-host for this episode is AFD Show listener, Alex from Michigan. In the "Shotgun News" segment, we discussed former GNR manager Doug Goldstein's tweet to current manager, Fernando. However, after this episode was recorded, OTHER former GNR manager Alan Niven responded to Doug. THAT response will be addressed on the next episode of Appetite for Distortion!!

  8. Scheduled interviews with Danko Jones this Thursday and Arian Buhler part 2 on Sunday. As always questions welcomed.
  9. Crazy when we listened to Meltdown's interview with Axl in '02, saying it would be 3 albums. Like you said...took another 6 years to get ONE.
  10. If you can believe it, the Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" will have been released 10 years ago as of November 23rd. The waiting, the hype, the mystery, the controversy... Here to reflect on the "then and now" of this infamous GNR record is Meltdown of WRIF in Detroit and @RussTCB of MyGNRForum.com. We discuss our first impressions back in 2008 and how we feel today. Comparisons to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Mariah Carey's "Glitter" are made...plus we read YOUR thoughts and comments! And Bumblefoot makes a "text appearance."

  11. When one of Matt McKagan's students wears a Guns N' Roses shirt, do they realize they're wearing the brother of their teacher? Matthew McKagan is our guest. Out of 8 McKagan children, Matthew is #7 and Duff #8, only separated by 2 1/2 years. What was it like growing up together? Did he foresee his brother's success? How did he handle Duff's path to sobriety? What's the story behind him playing on "Move to the City" and "Live and Let Die"? All this, YOUR questions, and much more on Episode 91!

  12. Would he know? My own brothers don't tell me everything.
  13. Heads up, Matt McKagan will be my next guest.
