  1. I could be wrong (and probably am) but I seem to remember thinking that Axl was using backing tracks in the Vegas residency debacle back in the day.
  2. Before this latest tour I'd have said yes but not anymore. When you can come back after all these years and put together the second highest grossing tour of all time? You're appropriately rated.
  3. Izzy was the SOUND of Guns N Roses. Axl was the voice. Adler was the backbone and Slash and Duff added their unique textures. Without Izzy, you lose the entire sound of the band, imo... and that probably had a lot to do (if not all) with their breaking up. Without Izzy coming back into the writing process, you're not going to have a record that sounds like GNR. You'll have bits and pieces, sort of like you had bits and pieces on all Duff, Slash and Axl's solo stuff... but you won't have the complete sound. That's why it's so important that he's involved. They need him.
  4. Rock music is SUPPOSE to be rebellious and politically incorrect. It's SUPPOSE to be something that stands up the norm and says: "Fuck off... we'll do whatever the hell we feel like doing, and there's nothing you can fucking do about it... bitch." The fact that people have forgotten that is humorous as hell to me.
  5. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I think of it as a solo effort (and always have) because Axl was pretty much overseeing everything and making all the final decisions. When you have one member with that much control, how can it be a band? It seems contradictory to the entire concept.
  6. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    The only really unpopular opinion I use to have was that the CD era was basically an Axl Rose solo project. But now, that seems like the popular opinion so... I guess after almost two decades, I've been vindicated... haha.
  7. I don't know. I remember a time in the late 80's when GNR were more than cool... they were basically rock personified. Everyone and I mean everyone had their album and was playing it. Now, after 1991, that sort of started to die off--at least in the US anyway--but to borrow a line from the man himself... there was a time.
  8. It's easy for some of us to sit behind a screen and type that sort of oorah stuff, but a lot harder to put it into practice. Now, let me preface what I'm about to say by admitting that I prescribe to the whole "confront and conquer" way of doing things. It's the way I've always done everything in my personal life. But I also understand that genetics and life circumstances play a heavy roll in my ability to do so. Axl Rose was an un-medicated, manically depressed teenager/young man who was raped by his father and persecuted by most of his family. He dropped out of high school and hitchhiked across the country before he was even a legal adult. Raised by the streets. Did gallons of drugs... you get the picture. He was about as far away from "mentally sound" as a person can get. By all accounts, he shouldn't even be alive. The guy even tried to kill himself once (could have been more, we don't know) by swallowing a bucket of pills. He was a mental headcase, with an itch for death. People like that? People who are mentally fucked up beyond all recognition? They don't see things like you do. Their reality is vastly different. It's not possible for most of those people to "wake up" and get their shit together. If they do, it's usually a case of luck.
  9. As much as I love Appetite (it truly is a masterpiece), it really gets annoying to watch the Illusion records get so little respect. It's like people forget that the Illusion tour was their biggest and their popularity at it's highest thanks to those two little albums.
