  1. Yeah, I watched it at the time too. It was a pretty stupid question to ask him when he made the blowjob comment. As if the most ridiculous rumour about Slash was going to be kids tv friendly! Then they decided to continue for another three minutes and of course there was an inevitable f-word
  2. I ended up on this old page on the BBC website. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/1165688.stm It's a roundup of a few things that had been broadcast on UK tv that had led to complaints back in 2000/1. Embarrassingly I ended up on that page as I was looking up what William G Stewart had to say on the Elgin marbles during an episode of Fifteen to One. Jeez, what the frig has happened to me Anyway, there's a reference to the time Slash went on Saturday morning kids tv, swore and referred to getting a blowjob in a bar. I particularly enjoyed this paragraph, which I can only assume indicates LWT had no idea who the hell they had booked to appear. "The broadcaster, LWT, explained that previous live interviews with Slash had given them no reason to believe he would use expletives."
  3. On my mobile this thread was abbreviated as "Guns N' Roses to Release Chi.." and I open it to find this
  4. When does Izzy sleep ?

    But isn't the verse about waking up at 7 describing the pre-Brownstone situation where he was able to get up on time. What you're describing is the "now I get up around whenever" Izzy But yeah, that does leave a lot of time unaccounted for, especially as we now know he could write a song like Mr Brownstone in just five minutes!
  5. Anyone have this?

    The 1992 date looks like BS with that track list. In fact, isn't that the Ritz setlist?
  6. Sebastian Bach Axl late story

    So it is, although it took me a while to find it as I naively searched combinations of the show and the date, before I realised how stupid I was being and searched for the bit of the story that grabs the attention of the non GNR fanbase. Funnily enough the Bon Jovi bit is the only uninteresting aspect of the story for me. What I love is just hearing Axl's humour and natural storytelling "they were right - we are scumbags" "these same 5 guys holding ice packs on their heads" "pretty low, right, for a big fucker" "so to distract him I told him to fuck off" and then as I've already mentioned "I wasn't even fighting and it took five fucking assholes to hold me down" which has to be my favourite Axl quote of all time. When I used to listen to this more frequently the whole show was on YT and earlier in the set Axl explains that the doctors told him he shouldn't sing that night. He says he doesn't know what's going to come out when he sings but "I couldn't just stay on the bus". Pretty sure the YT channel where I used to listen to the show was run by Chris Buck, a guitarist well worth checking out. His channel was a goldmine of GNR rarities, demos, live shows etc. Sadly the channel is long gone of course.
  7. Sebastian Bach Axl late story

    I miss that Axl description of the incident being on YT. Sure I've got a download of it somewhere. For the benefit of those that haven't heard it what makes it all the better is that it's in the middle of a blues jam, and Axl fits the story around the music perfectly. To this day, me and the wife use a couple of quotes from Axl's story as in jokes. "Typical *insert job* mentality" whenever we encounter anyone over officious and enjoying the small amount of power that their job gives them. And when our young daughter has a really bad tantrum and starts swinging punches at us resulting in us having to restrain her, afterwards we'll impersonate her behind her back using the line "I wasn't even fighting and it took five fucking assholes to hold me down."
  8. GNR references in pop cultutre

    There was definitely a reference in My Name is Earl but I forget the details. I remember it was Randy and he mentioned Axl and Buckethead. And there was an Axl in The Middle, which I think counts as a reference.
  9. I was listening to the bass track from My Michelle today - presumably taken from the Blu Ray - and noticed there's a synth line for about 20 seconds that comes in at 2 mins 28. It's not loud enough to be heard in the full song (at least to my ears anyway). Made me wonder what else people had found that's buried in the AFD mix but can now be heard thanks to the Blu Ray?
