  1. 2 Duff Boston MA for sale

    The more I listen to the three songs released so far, the more I'm enjoying them. They were definite growers. Funny thing is, while I liked "Chip Away" most on first listen, I actually like the other two much more now. I am looking forward to a mellow, chill vibe at Duff's show. Good luck selling your tickets. I'd cop if it was anywhere close to me, but it isn't. I'll be at the Chicago show at Thalia Hall.
  2. I'm 37 and I've heard of or am a fan of a bunch of the acts on the bill. Expand your horizons, dude. It isn't about age. It's more about some people being happy just listening to the music of their youth. I seek out new stuff too. Whatever makes you happy, honestly. But the lineup isn't lame.
  3. You literally don't ever have to hear him sing again. You don't have to click play when someone shares a link.
  4. A store near my home in Chicago used to sell Chicago 1992 on DVD, pro-shot. Or at least, they had it in stock at one time. This was years ago though.
  5. I'm very much looking forward to Duff's show in Chicago. It's gonna be a chill, mellow and awesome vibe based on this song. I'm a big fan of it.
  6. Not sure, but I know he appeared in Chicago with Guns N' Roses in '92 to sing backing vocals.
  7. Yeah, like a secret/surprise Troubadour show. A Coachella headlining gig. Recording at Axl's house this weekend.
  8. And an AFD reunion rather than guest spot would just mean the record would be delayed EVEN further. No, thanks. I do love Izzy though.
  9. All I see are a bunch of whiners. You don't have to go to the show. I am glad my favorite band is still out there touring and I'll go every chance I get. The set list aren't for the folks sitting at home complaining on a forum. It's for the people there live. And I honestly don't want them to cut out any of the big hits.
  10. They play for three hours and play nearly all their well-known songs. How is that lazy? It's a rhetorical question, by the way, because you made a dumb statement.
  11. What do you mean by "the shits"? Like, weather-wise because they flooded out last year? Or GNR themselves? If it's the latter, that's just, like, your opinion, man (to paraphrase The Dude). When I go to a Guns show, I wanna hear all my favorite jams. All the hits that get the crowd up (especially in a festival setting). Time and place for new music. I'm just a big fan and want to see them as much as possible.
  12. To clarify here. I meant I normally buy pit tickets to the regular shows, which cost close to $300 each. The $70 I bought for Louder Than Life are general admission since it wasn't clear for the $200 VIP if you'd be side-stage or they'd rail off part of the front. Even still, I just didn't want to pay that much right now. I am doing two other festivals in September. Riot Fest and Bass Center.
  13. Through the Louder than Life website presale code COMMUNITY. Not sure which stage IS the Oak Stage, so I didn't want to buy the VIP for more than double the price of a single day. From previous maps, it appears the VIP is designated off to the side of the stage, not in front. I am not interested in that. Also, it would suck to buy the VIP then find out GNR play a different stage. 'Cause there is a second higher-priced VIP that gives you close access to two different stages. Oak and something else. I forget.
  14. Got a pair of tickets today. Not a bad price at all at $70 each. I normally spring for pit tickets to GNR shows that cost me almost $300 each. Not too far to drive from Chicago. Rock and roll.
  15. You're misremembering and allowing rewritten history to tell the tale. Guns N' Roses were one of the biggest and coolest rock bands from when AfD blew up till 1993 when their tour ended. They had their haters, like Kurt Cobain, who were just jealous while simultaneously putting our their own version of polished, pop rock (Nevermind). Guns N' Roses stopped mattering to the mainstream public when the band went on hiatus and turned away from the public eye. Grunge didn't kill GNR. Grunge was as big of a fad as hair metal. GNR is the band that really killed hair metal. They were along that lineage of Stones/Aerosmith/Hanoi Rocks. But they blended all their styles together. Duff was punk. Slash was classic rock. Axl was into Elton John and Queen. ETC. Edit: I got into rock music in the early '90s and Motley Crue, Poison, Warrant and other hair bands were left in the path of destruction laid out by GNR. I don't get how people forget that they blew up on the strip but blew PAST all the hair bands. Bands like Nirvana who ridiculed GNR for the pomp and circumstance ... I saw Foo Fighters last year at Wrigley Field. They did a straight up GNR-style stadium show. Two-plus hours. Backup singers, solos, etc.
