  1. ha reference to Billy Joe's speech at the GNR induction at the Hall of Fame
  2. anyone a member? I am going through some old stuff and I came across this, I remember I signed up for it for 1 year and I am pretty sure I was supposed to get a Newsletter every 4 months and I got this 1 newsletter and I never heard back from them, kind of makes sense if you look at the timeline as this was dated from May 9, 1996 and Slash left in October and maybe the band went into a disarray and they stopped sending them and making them, anyone know if they made any after this Volume 1 issue 3? anyone have any of the previous 2 Newsletters? it is odd though I received this in May 1996, and looking at the "Language of Fear" thing it talks about a contest and the entries have to be received by February 1995 and the discography says compiled November 1994 and Sympathy for the Devil was released in December 94 so I am guessing they just sent me an old copy.
  3. I saw him when I was riding a RV in Egypt in April of 2012
  4. oh look, after this $300 discount they moved the "regular" price down to $799, I am guessing those of you want this thing for $400-$500 will have it in the near future https://gnrmerch.com/collections/appetite-for-destruction/products/appetite-for-destruction-locked-n-loaded-box-set
  5. they got me, just dropped $737 on it with tax, really didn't think I would even spend that much but yea, out of curiosity I see the most you were able to buy before I got mine was 383, after I got mine it is 382, that mean there are only 382 of these things left? or maybe just on this promotion? I still can not imagine they sold more than a couple of thousand of these things but who knows, a $300 discount is a heavy discount and it seems like they are really trying to move these things
  6. is that for real? I honestly thought they might have sold 1,000 of them at the most, who the hell is buying them at $1,000 a pop, this is the home of GNR die hards and it seems the majority of the people are staying away, I can't imagine them selling more than 1-2,000 of these things
  7. as Izzy said, Steve was the "feel" of the band, just listening to that cover I think is actually better than hearing PC on this semi-reunion tour, you can just feel it back to how it was supposed to be played
  8. so true, but yea, I honestly think the richer you get the more greedy you get, like the money becomes who you are and it is like a drug or a high, it does not help the fact that Republicans have been in power for the most part of the last 30 years who only work to shove the wealth of this land into those who are already wealthy
  9. shows were nothing more than a cash grab, in fact this whole semi-reunion including the $1,000 box sets is nothing more than a cash grab, that said I saw 8 NITL shows and they were all awesome, could have done without a few of the covers and most of the Chinese Democracy songs just out of curiosity, did you not go to a show because of not thinking it was a real reunion, or maybe they did not go in your area?
  10. but yea, I would definitely like to own this Locked and Loaded, but $1,000 is beyond insane, sell me this thing for $450 now and I am buying it, sell it to me for $450 in 2 years I am probably forgetting about it and I have lost my desire to buy it, I have no idea how they are making 10,000 of these things and expecting to sell them anywhere north of $500, much less $1,000 fucking dollars, I can not imagine more then like 600 or so if these things have been sold at $1,000
  11. at 9:07 and 9:35 of the unboxing of the Locked and Loaded he is showing a bunch of Flyers and 2 of them look like they are autographed from Duff Slash and someone else (Steven?), are these actual autograph's? it does not look like a pre-printed thing and the fact the same 3 signed both of them has me thinking it is real
  12. I agree, I am guessing by the Holidays it is going to be around $750, but even that is insanely over priced, but if there are really 10,000 of these things I am guessing no more than 1,000 of them are going to be sold at the $750-$1,000 price point so I am guessing eventually they are going to have to drastically reduce it, might take at least a year or 2 to swallow their pride and offer them at around $400-$500 price point which is what it should have been from the get go, but by the time that rolls around most people are going to forget they are even available and the $400-$500 price is going to seem insanely expensive. I would really love to know how many of these things are sold at the $1,000 price and in addition they are fucking themselves because those fans that would have bought it maybe at around $500 are going to buy the $150 box set and in no way going to want to cough up another $500 for essentially a few Vinyls and patches and stickers or whatever else they included in the $1,000 thing, if there are really 10,000 of these things going to be sitting in a warehouse starting next week I am guessing they are going to have to be selling them at around $300-$400 sometime in the next few years
  13. have they lowered the price on that $1,000 thing to $300-$400 yet? that was my price point a few months ago when it was announced, but now with each passing day I am less interested in it and I am guessing my price point on it might be $150 in a couple of months
  14. don't care for it, would have been really cool to hear a release of crash diet though
  15. well that is my price point, really $300-$400 is what I am willing to spend, but if I am seeing it as $500 and it is not going to get cheaper I might say fuck it and bite the bullet, I would really love to see how many of these things they sell at $999.99, I am guessing they are going to be very hush about the numbers, of course there are going to people who are going to buy it at $999.99, than after a few months they are going to reduce the price and I am sure they are going to piss off those early buyers
