  1. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    "Well, I'm constantly trying to catch him but that fucker won't take the bait!"
  2. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Yup. It was not an open letter, it was a press release written by Axl's lawyer in response to the aforementioned lawsuit that Slash and Duff filed. I'm confused as to how people got the impression that Axl went public about this incident "a few days later"? According to the press release Slash came to Axl's house in October 2005, and the press release happened in March 2006. In fact, in a January 2006 interview all Axl said about Slash was "I haven't spoken to Slash in ten years," and "I love the guy, I always wanted everyone to know how great he was -"... Here it is in case anyone wants to read it again.
  3. I've always been of the opinion that 14 years and Don't Cry (Alt lyrics) were Axl and Izzy's way of saying farewell to something in their friendship. That being said, I also believe that Izzy wrote Move to the City with Axl in mind as the subject matter... I agree with @Blackstar, Axl most probably knew what Izzy was trying to say through the song (I mean, it's pretty fucking obvious). People assume that Axl is too egoistical to have recorded the song if he knew that it was meant as a slight against him but I get the impression that Axl probably appreciated the blunt honesty and artistically liked the song enough to agree to do it. Two things that stand out to me in this song; Izzy's voice () and the piano (very jazz/blues which I like a lot).

    Well... there is something I can't un-see.
  5. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Woah! I don't think I've ever bought anything that fast! I'm just happy to hear him talk during the shows tbh.
  6. Why would one bring in Buckethead just to fill in the rhythm section? It'd be a fuckin waste.

    I think it'll be good thing. I feel like Axl should have moved on from Gn'R a long time ago. As far as it being a "slap in the face to Gn'R fans", what was CD-era then? A love tap?
  8. Eh... you can't really take anything Howard Stern says at face value. His entire career is based upon stirring shit in order to get more "controversial" interviews. He thrives off of schism and being a dick.
  9. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Man.. I really should get an Instagram account. The only way I get to know all this shit is cuz your guys post it here, so thanks for that. I'm trying not to get my hopes up for an Angus/Axl collab (but I want it to happen sooo bad).
  10. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    York Dungeon is better imo. I almost wish I could go back to the times I would get scared by freaky stuff, but I'm far too desensitised at this point. I'm going to Farmaggedon this year which is supposed to be really fun. Apparently you get to fight off zombies with paintball
  11. What Are You Listening To 2017

    Was listening to this and recalled the embarrassingly long time it took for me to realise that the song's called Brianstorm... Also, this has been stuck in my head all day.

    ... does it work?
  13. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Thank you @Tori72 for clarifying and I'm glad that we agree that the tone in which such matters are discussed makes a big difference. And yes, the pun was very much intended. Just wanted to add that he was quite the "party animal" in 2006 as well. As far as excessive drinking to the point of alcoholism goes, we only know of Axl being drunk during night outs and possibly during some shows. I'm not sure that's enough to conclusively highlight alcohol as a problem. All I'll say on this is that it seems like Axl was aware for most of his life. During the infamous interview with Kurt Loder in '91 Axl eluded to this when he said:- "... majority of the band at that time. Or too much alcohol or too much something. Me? I was eating too much, or whatever, and just sitting on my ass too much."

    I get that but taking that argument into account it makes it okay to criticize men for their looks cuz it happens to women. Maybe I'm being naive but isn't that a little contraindicative and hypocritical? Does that not just perpetuate such behaviors and the disproportionate focus of appearance and sexual appeal? Yes, but that conversation was thoughtful and intellectual imo. It was a far removed form cheap comments such as "lol he looks like a whale". I don't wanna be the stick in the mud - the occasion ribbing and memes are quite funny. But I just feel like the whole Axl weight-watching thing is becoming a little old. I haven't seen much of this around but I don't agree with that sort of behavior either. Especially regarding Susan and Megan as they aren't even in the fucking band.
