  1. Going by his own words, it was actually Duff who originally described GNR as "the most dangerous band in the world": Classic Rock, Issue 72 November 2004
  2. He sued the brewery if that's any consolation.
  3. A brief personal encounter with a celebrity doesn't necessarily offer a true picture of their character, either. It's not only on social media that people read too much into things or base their opinion on irrelevant information. The same thing happens in real life encounters.
  4. Official GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

    If not for the occasional political tweet, Axl's twitter page would be nothing but happy birthday and rest in peace messages.
  5. R.I.P Kobe Bryant

    Not only ridiculous but plain atrocious. It seems anybody who dares to mention the case now becomes the target of a massive hate campaign. Snoop Dogg publicly threatened CBS News anchor Gayle King for bringing it up and she's been receiving death threats too.
  6. General Chat / Random Musings

    Loved how he took the opportunity to talk about cows.
  7. Official GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

    That's not exactly what I said. Plus, what does that have to do with the question of who the parasite is in the movie? That would seem to be a completely separate issue.
  8. Official GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

    How so? According to the director the title refers to both of the families and that's how I took it.
  9. Official GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

    lol A passing thought of a certain family did enter my mind while watching that movie.
  10. My opinion on both has changed for the worse. Ever since Duff's interviews last year and the resulting aftermath with Raz's open letter etc., I've seen him with new eyes and been forced to reevaluate my opinion on him. I used to have a fairly positive opinion on Duff and thought he was the most decent guy in GNR. Even when he said that GNR were good dudes I might have thought there was some truth to it if he had been talking about himself and not his band members, because I had never heard anything horrible about Duff before. As for Slash, it was disappointing that while in South Africa he and Meegan visited facilities where tourists are allowed to cuddle lion cubs and walk with lions. They claimed they had done their research before visiting the place. Yet if you do any research at all you will immediately find out that these places are bad for animals and connected to canned lion hunting. Animal welfare and wildlife organizations have worked hard to educate the puclic to stay away from such tourist attractions. Slash had a reputation as a wildlife activist and had previously spoken out for elephants, so it was disappointing that he not only visited the place but also gave it a lot of free advertisement. Del James also visited similar facilities and took pictures with animals that appeared to be so heavily drugged they were completely out of it. My opinion on Del didn't change because it wasn't the first time I had seen animal cruelty related pictures of him. At this point I think I like Steven the best as far as the classic lineup. He's a little bit more honest with a little bit more heart to him than the rest of them - or at least that's my impression. Even if he occasionally blurts out the wrong thing, I find it refreshing if the alternative is the hus hus mentality and never saying anything interesting. I can barely read through interviews with current members anymore because they are such a borefest. The most exciting moments of the NITL tour were the brief moments Steven was on stage with them. For a long time I was hoping he would return. Lately I've began to think that maybe it's for the better that he stays away if being in GNR means completely losing your balls, freedom of speech, and any integrity that you might have.
  11. I hate screamers and people who sing along. Maybe it's not so bad if everyone's doing it, but if one person is constantly drawing attention to themselves with their screams throughout the show, it's usually a great annoyance. Some people are so loud it's like they came to listen to their own voice and not the band. I feel like grabbing them and going, "What the hell is wrong with you? Put a sock in it!"
  12. I suppose bands have the same right to "refuse service" as stores, restaurants and other businesses. However, if Rick was kicked out for no reason other than being a persona non grata, I think they should at least refund him for his ticket.
  13. Now that was a blast from the past, Locomotive! Been ages since I last heard that song. Cool to hear it again!
  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Fixation? I don't think you know the meaning of the word. I find his comments slightly unpleasant but it's not a big deal. The same goes for the "Axl is fat" comments on the forum.
  15. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Are you saying the quote is something Axl said to the police before the police had arrived and arrested the woman for the first time? If so, then it's odd he didn't describe her in more detail (if the reason he had to describe her was because she had already left the house and the police had to go look for her). Doesn't "testified Rose in a declaration" suggest it was something he said or wrote later on for the court hearing? I don't know why he mentioned her height but maybe to emphasise that she was very heavy in relation to her height.
