  1. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    NuGuns (or whatever you want to call it, be it WAR, Axl Rose and Friends, or Guns N Roses) only diminished the legacy of the band/Axl in those last 2-3 years, and even then there were still flashes of greatness from time to time. 2012-2013 were some dark days and it seemed like Axl and the brand was dead. But 2002, 2006-2007, 2009-2010 versions of the band/Axl were completely valid as their own entities with loads of great shows and performances from all involved. I would hate to think of never getting any of those performances because of nerds being precious about the name of the band.
  2. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Izzy ultimately benefited the most from being in this band. The other 4 would have become big stars (to varying degrees) with other bands, Izzy's boring dad rock mentality would have never made it out of the 80s without the other guys boosting his sound. Which is not to diminish his impact on the band, but I don't think anyone would know his name if he had been in a different band.
  3. I'm inclined to believe Shadow has a new guitar track based on it having a new intro and solo that otherwise doesn't appear on any of the versions (demo, live, or final cut) recorded originally and is how Slash played it in 2018. Seems strange to me that that version of the intro and solo were never played in any fashion before the Locked and Loaded set version.
  4. God damn anything that isn't a vintage tour shirt is so garbage in the shop
  5. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I don't know that it's trash but it's basically Steak N Shake but a lot faster and a lot cheaper. It's certainly about as overrated as can be, it's just decent cheap fast food burgers.
  6. Alter Bridge is not and has never been "cool". Unless you're a mid 40s metal dad who still gels your hair and likes large leather bracelets
  7. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I'm not at all bothered by the same setlists or lack of new music coming from this band
  8. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    I was listening to the Stockholm show at the gym today. Between the extended solos on Shadow Life and World on Fire, they could probably fit 5 songs into the setlist without exaggeration.
  9. I'd like to have heard a Slash/Lzzy Hale album. Or even just a single song, I guess.
  10. I would go to GNR doing an all covers show tbh. A much smaller venue and relaxed atmosphere, cheaper prices, obviously, but a full set of the covers they've done of the years and some new ones would be pretty cool, imo.
  11. Has the band done any bar/private shows with the NITL unit?
