  1. My one disappointment in Axl

    No I had too many to mention, but this one was one worth going out of my way to mention here to everybody. You'll never get to the bottom of disappointments in Axl They just keep growing and growing and forming and reforming; there's no such thing as an end!
  2. My one disappointment in Axl

    In taking a look at Axl's 2002 line-up, I must say firstly that I'm disappointed in Axl for for not retaining his 2002 line-up due to his delays etc etc. Secondly, Axl knew perfectly well what he was doing and the diverse direction of music he wanted to take that band in, unlike Slash, Duff and the rest who just wanted to lie in the rut playing hard rock instead of experimenting with diverse directions, in-depth and meaningful. Just visualise songs like Chinese Democracy, Shackler's Revenge, Better, Street Of Dreams, If The World, There Was A Time, Catcher In The Rye, Sorry, I.R.S., Madagascar, This I Love, Prostitute and all the recent leaks...a setlist primarily constructed of sorts of songs being played by Buckethead, Robin, Richard, Tommy, Dizzy and Chris, with Axl's vocals to top it off; this could have been one of the greatest and most epic bands of the modern century. Axl sure knew what he was doing...he just didn't do it wholy. If he is going to record an album again, only this time intends to do it for real, he should seek that same lineu-up, because boy they were some real talented musicians!
  3. Happy Birthday Axl Rose

    It's your birthday Axl! Not a young soul anymore, that's for sure!
  4. Somebody needed to point Gn'R out for this endless touring with no material, and the Rolling Stone did it! It was completely fair-game if you ask me! The fans are paying ridiculously (hell, you could even say criminally) expensive prices just to see a band that keeps milking the cash cow by this neverending touring and what have they got to show for it? There is hardly any changes in the setlist, let alone any new material being played. I could understand if they genuinely weren't able to release an album, but at least put at least made use of the leaks just like in '06-'07, announced a tour and made it clear to the fans that they will hear new material. But what we've seen in Miami, I'd be very surprised if something did take change on the S.A. leg this March. As somebody said, the band needs a good slap on the wrists to be reminded that they are really playing their fans, and if we can get more reviews like the Rolling Stone, perhaps it will begin to affect their ticket sales to the point that they will have to do something new? Who knows, but this review is at least a starting point and I'm glad to see that finally somebody has taken some form of action. Good on you Rolling Stone!
  5. It's strange that Double Talkin' Jive is where it is in the set, if that is the actual setlist
  6. First ever GnR song that you heard?

    I was watching Terminator 2 as a child when it came out and remember hearing Axl's voice and the rocking attitude of You Could Be Mine for the first time as I saw the scene when John is revving up his bike and taking off. "She's not mother Todd!" 😂 Then I was further intrigued as it was played when the boys ride in the canal, rocking out to it. Then at The ending credits of the film, when the film's title track ended and You Could Be Mine kicked in, that drumming and gusting totally took me away! Then Axl's voice adding rock n' tool venom into all this; I couldn't believe myself what I'd heard. Years down the track, as I'd take a deeper interest in Terminator 2, the track pulled completely took me away, as I would play the film's ending day after day on an endless basis, until I'd finally purchase most Gn'R CDs, yet still remain obsessively playing You Could Be Mine over and over again and it remains by far my favourite Gn'R song; I'll spend part of my spare time finding quality live versions to listen to repetitively.
  7. Show Opener and Closer

    Perfect Crime would be a great opener if you ask me; it's short, energetic & blasts through, delivering that seriously fast-paced no-screwing-around-here rock n' roll attitude right within the core of the fans! Paradise City is fine for a closer, however to the fans wanting something more in-depth & mindblowing, I'd pick Coma for a perfect candidate! To finish the night with such an epic & thematic tune, I couldn't possibly ask for more.
  8. Why exactly is Frank called "Thunderchucker"?

    Oh god I wasn't expecting THAT haha but hey...I guess you learn something new and valuable each day?
  9. Why exactly is Frank called "Thunderchucker" if his drumming has been described as "Toe-Tapping"? Personally, I don't think that he's a bad drummer or anything & in 2009-2010 he did go a fair bit harder. All I see missing in his drumming are a thunderous sound to his kit & that extra bit of force he gave, but perhaps that's due to years upon years of not playing original material?
  10. This day 1991- YCBM video is released!

    My favourite Gn'R song! I remember obsessively watching it in the ending credits of T2 countless times, and nowadays as a spare-time obsession I search for high quality fan recorded versions from this last tour Here's an ass-kicking quality one I found:
