  1. As far as I know, no. But I guess it could be. I heard McBob right before the band took the stage. Not during the animated video.
  2. Maybe they didn't have proof? A guy on Reddit is citing old articles of a failed festival Rick put together, calling him a conman and saying he was distributing the mp3s even after selling back to GNR. We're never gonna know the truth.
  3. Well ... if they were trying to stifle talk about leaks, this was definitely the wrong approach. I don't care that Rick was banned for life, honestly. I don't know the particulars of it. But now he's out there doing interviews and bringing more attention to the leaks, which will in turn cause more fans to go out looking for them. It's all so silly. Record proper versions, master it, release them, and no one but the diehards will give a shit about early leaked versions.
  4. It's not news they're doing Lolla. Slash said there'd be dates in March. And Lolla was all but confirmed months ago.
  5. 100 percent happened. I remember I posted about it on this forum and people thought it was bullshit till others also chimed in that it definitely happened. Even still, there were people who thought we were lying.
  6. McBob still does intros. Or at least they played McBob's intro in Louisville.
  7. LALD is awesome live. He always nails the scream too. And crowd always sings a long. I never listen to this song though.
  8. It is by NITL standards. It's the new normal again.
  9. What's up with GNR coming on late every goddamn show this leg of the tour?
  10. Yeah, it is. Just not on the US live era. I have it.
  11. Wow. The stage today is smaller than the arena stage I went to in Chi. Pits even smaller than ever.
  12. Every show I've been to, Axl nails the "I NEVER WANTED YOU TO BE SO FULL OF ANGAHHH" part. I fucking love it. Chills.
  13. Yeah, Rick might wanna change his username to NoLongerAxlRoseFan4Life.
  14. I mean ... he purchased the discs and then openly talked about it on the internet. Then the discs leaked. You're gonna get a target on your head. I don't know if Rick did or didn't do anything wrong. But he should have kept that shit on the extreme hush hush.

    I will always go see GNR as well. The set list elitists don't bother me. GNR can easily just do 90 minutes, then "vary" the set list every night since they're only playing half their current set list. Would people be happy then because the sets are not the same show to show?

    I have heard great things about Tame Impala live. Sometimes it takes seeing a band live to appreciate them. Happens with me all the time when I "discover" something or have a sort of "awakening" about a band I check out at a fest, or an opening act. However ... man, I hate every Tame Impala song I've ever listened to.

    ACL crowd sounds like they were tame compared to Louder Than Life. That shit was bananas all fest. Crowd surfing and mosh pits.

    I love it.

    This is exactly why people can sit here and bitch about set lists, but the fans there live by and large want to hear banger after banger, hit after hit. They don't want deep cuts, they don't want Chinese Democracy, and they don't want new songs.

    Edit: Just checked. Didn't realize Austin was central time. Should be starting 15 min ago.

    Week 2 litho will likely be different from week 1 ... if Coachella 2016 is any indication.
  22. July 5, 1993 (Barcelona, Spain): Duff's book, It's So Easy: In 2002, Slash told Entertainment Weekly: Same story, different time. OK, maybe one of them flubbed the year, right? The problem with this story, as Axl pointed out in the past, is that if it were true, it wouldn't be a legally binding document because it means Slash and Duff would have signed over the name under duress (the threat of Axl not going on stage and an ensuing riot). Slash signed the agreement on October 15, 1992. Duff signed the agreement on October 21, 1992. Not only were GNR not on tour at the time, but Slash and Duff didn't even sign the doc on the same date, as they both claimed. Clearly they were putting media spin on this to make it look like Axl forced them into signing.
  23. There were photos of documents posted over a year or two ago that showed the actual date and time that Slash and Duff turned over the GNR name and it didn't coincide with any tour date they would have been on. I can try to find them.
