  1. I posted this on my social... I'm enjoying talking to those listeners who wanted Richard Fortus to talk more GNR in our interview. In my opinion, it's important to look at it big picture. While some former and current GNR members/team may have non-disclosure agreements, that's another story (and not the case here). However let's use Slash as an example. After he left GNR; while he did Snakepit, VR, solo, Guitar Hero, and other projects, he was always asked about GNR. It bothered him as he wanted to discuss his new stuff. As a person he should be able to, he had a new source of income and creativity to promote. As a fan, I understand why we want all the GNR stories. However, also as a fan I would enjoy Slash talk about whatever. Horror, dinosaurs, whatever. To go into every interview thinking it was going to be a cross-examination about GNR would be exhausting and would he even want to do it? You can use this example for actors, athletes, etc. Of course this isn't a universal truth, but something to keep in mind. Also important to note that this similar approach has led to a second interview with Tommy Stinson coming soon. His rep specifically said to me that many interviewers will just want to talk Replacements and GNR with him, but he needs to make a living with his new stuff. It's not that they won't talk GNR, but if they don't make a point to promote the new, interviewers will take advantage and be selfish with questions. It's all about balance, timing, and earning trust. At least if I want to get these guys on again and earn a good reputation to keep booking guests for us. I appreciate and welcome all feedback. I like to think our audience is smarter than most, so I always expect a good dialog from you - B
  2. Silly. If I ever got Slash, I'd be satisfied just talking about horror and dinosaurs with him, wouldn't matter to me if GNR didn't come up. I bet you he'd appreciate that. You probably would too.
  3. There’s GNR. Some just will never be satisfied. My view is if you’re truly a fan of the band or of a member, you would enjoy hearing whatever they have to say. It doesn’t have to be unearthed GNR specific facts.
  4. Many of these guys want to discuss the present/future, it just is what it is. And while your ques are valid, I can totally see them being spun into a negative headline. TBH I think I would have gotten to harder questions if I had more time, but he had to go. He did call me early because he knew he'd run out of time, which was very nice of him.
  5. I felt the slightest push back when GNR came up. As I mentioned above, it was the same with Tommy. And I understand. Many of these guys have been burned by interviewers before, only asking for dirt and not what matters to the person. Their reps tell me this. It keeps them cautious until a trust is earned, which can only happen with an actual interview. So I'm grateful Tommy agreed to another. I'll talk Lemonheads and Cowboys in the Campfire with him, but I think I'll be able to ask more GNR this time too. And with the Headtronics peeps being happy, I'd feel good about another interview with Richard in the future.
  6. You have to do what’s right for the guest and what they’re comfortable with. Same approach when I interviewed Tommy Stinson. And because of that I’m going to interview him again soon.
  7. As I mentioned to both of them, I have to go to my girlfriends dance show. It is what it is.
  8. Big show, 2 interviews. First up, special co-host Geoff from GNR Central helps interview Freekbass. Freek tells us all about the Cincinnati funk scene and his work with Buckethead. Also he details how his new band, Headtronics, formed. One of his Headtronics bandmates is our second guest...Richard Fortus. Guns N' Roses' Richard Fortus joins us later in the episode to talk about this new band, answers your fan-submitted questions, and if he likes knowing that his interviews go viral! Headtronics will be playing the Brooklyn Bowl 2/16/19. iHeart--> https://ihr.fm/2X6j4ze Spreaker --> https://bit.ly/2S5pVp9 SoundCloud --> https://bit.ly/2S5r00b Stitcher --> https://bit.ly/2SCixqn Google Play --> https://play.google.com/music/m/Dt4ovpi7wgtypzyx5l64ynv5thm…

  11. Perhaps we should label this episode "Appetite for Emotion." Former Great White & Guns N' Roses manager Alan Niven joins us for the 3rd time. Alan fell into a deep depression after his firing from GNR and tells us that part of his story, mainly in hopes it will help someone else. An important conversation is had in episode 102 of the AFD Show.
