  1. I never insinuated Axl, Slash, Duff can’t tell a good drummer from a bad one. It’s their choice to have frank play. There are probably reasons to keep him around like loyalty to Axl over the years, he is paid as an employee rather than an original member, as well as others we can only guess about. Good for frank that he has the endurance to play for almost a 3hr set sometimes. That’s really commendable. However, you can tell from the first song of a set, how musicality and dynamics are so important for drummers. I’m not saying Frank isn’t good at what he does, but there is a missing ingredient that becomes very apparent when a different great drummer pushes a band like GnR like what we heard in that it’s so easy performance. It’s like night and day. Power and endurance is fine, but dynamics, drum kit tone, and musicality is so much more important. Especially for a band like GNR.
  2. That was cool. So nice to see the guys actually having fun together on stage. 👍
  3. What a difference a great drummer can make. Killer energy, it’s like the band de-aged 10 years.
  4. If “Management” was so concerned about image projection, why havent they ordered Axl to lose weight or fix the voice?
  5. Axls performance I think, seem to be a mix of no/low prep for touring/fitness, and negligence of taking care of his vocals with the right technique. Watching any videos from 2016 on, he’s basically yelling and screaming to even get any bit of raspiness in his voice.. His vocals are shot, and it’s not going to get any better with time if he continues this way. I don’t know why they would want to keep Axl in the position of touring when he’s not prepared vocally and is probably continuing to damage his vocal chords this way.
  6. I understand. I suppose it would make sense to just drop the thing entirely. I invested a lot in the band for a long time. It’s hard to let it go completely (even lurking the forums). I guess I’m holding on to false expectations. Like I said, I’m done investing in them with money for live performances. I think these tours are just an act of cash grabbing and there is no potential or desire to move forward as a band or musical force.
  7. Well I guess I’m more interested in the setlist at this point than anything else. I’m not going to watch it at this point, and I’m not going to rush out to buy tickets for a show anymore. I’ve already done it and learned my lesson.
  8. I’m interested to see how the show progresses. That being said, Axls vocals continue to decline, and he’s more out of shape than the last run.
