  1. Concert Posters Thread

    Geez, still no love for Kozik or non-GNR posters it seems. In the early 90s I was in high school and such a PJ fanatic. I'd have proudly displayed this poster to be all aggressive and get in the face of Pro-lifers, cause I considered them "evil brainwashed bible thumpers, maaaaan." Ah....the stupidity of youth. I'm 42 now and I don't give a crap either way. Someone starts talking about abortion and I just peace out of the conversation. But those loudmouth SJWs Pearl Jam had to have an agenda for everything. Cool poster though. Another great PJ from later in their career was another one with those crazy perspective letting like the beginning of a SW movie. I'm a sucker for that: And I finally found a decent(ish) pic of my 2000 Europe subway poster. I still have it. This pic doesn't do it justice. It was about 2 feet by 5 feet....just MASSIVE. And I love the gas mask face. This pic is small and sucky but it's all I could find. Mine is currently rolled up in a tube for the last 20 years but I'm so glad I have it!! This is for sure the one I have cause the same cities are listed. It's never for sale...wonder what it's worth? A lot of PJ poster are worth biiiiig bucks... So come on guys....let's see come cool godamn rock posters....60s, 70s, 80s, 90s....whatever! Let's see more!!

    Well guys.....I finally bit the bullet and did it. I bought my most sought after piece of GNR memorabilia. I am now the proud owner of a genuine Las Vegas 01-01-01 soldier face t-shirt. It wasn't cheap, and I was dubious cause it was an XXL, which is rare in concert shirts, but the seller turned out to be a fairly well known member of the online GNR community and he had proof he was there. The shirt itself is in wonderful condition. As close to near mint as possible. Clearly it was never worn. The colors are bright and vivid. Yeah, I spent a lot, but I'm satisfied. IF this thing is somehow a fake? It's one hell of a superior fake!! Speaking of fakes, let's compare it to the actual fake I bought for $20 from Indonesia last year. Side by side of the front: Notice the thicker font on the fake (on the right.) It's also lacking the Chinese kanji in the top left of the pic. But the biggest telltale is the image quality itself: muddled and less sharp, and the colors are all muted and the details and blurry. Especially easy to notice is how flat the colors are, and the lack of subtle gradation the original has. The back is WAAYYY more obvious!! CD "II" starts now??? WTF?? If that's not a dead giveaway, the colors are all muted, the printing is so low quality that you can see the black shirt right through the white lettering, and the text is lower on the back than on the original. The white letters are soooo faded. The real shirt has white vibrant lettering with red borders and sits higher up on the back. Having said all that.....the price is right for the fake. It's usually $20 on ebay and if you just want a copy of this shirt to wear around or go to the gym or whatever, why not? As long as you know it's a complete fake, there's no harm. Although I've never washed/worn mine, so I can't guarantee that it won't simply disintegrate in the wash!! Anyway....feels amazing to finally own this Holy Grail shirt exactly 19 years after the first time I saw it, in a blurry pic on the gnrontour page, while jealously reading reviews of the show, wondering what Chinese Democracy, Riad, the Blues, and Silkworms sounded like. Now all the years later, not only have we had the real album forever, but the actual full video of that show is out there too, if you know where to look. Took a long time, but better late than never!! Big thanks to the guy that sold it to me.....he knows who he is...not sure he reads this forum anymore, but I appreciate it....and i hope the big chunk of change I paid for this came in handy for him! So those still looking for this masterpiece of a shirt.....keep looking; they're out there, but they're not cheap. In the meantime, grab a fake on ebay, cause those are worth the money too considering how dirt cheap they are and it's still cool just having "something" instead of nothing!!
  3. The "New Album" Thread

    Yeah, and Dizzy's mom confirmed that Chinese Democracy was for sure definitely 100% being released in 2003. If you were a fan back then, you know I'm not making that up. That's what constituted for news back in the "dark days." I think the fact that the reunited GNR released a goddamn b-side that we've all had for almost 30 years and pretended it was a new song probably means they haven't written anything together. Gee....I wonder why......could it be......Axl?
  4. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Just spotted a sealed Live Era on Japanese site mercari....36,000 yen.... If anyone is really serious I can go about helping purchase it, but obviously you'll have to wire me the money or something first! https://item.mercari.com/jp/m86097632669/?_s=U2FsdGVkX1-RFSlOkMAeCTqLK3bhkrov_5wNJ6aN0JJW8xoIRWwiNIu3ZZQaiUFPcF2eXi1R0ETPzPbvVRzm7T5KCXcn5WPsgokjdx4mqsIRgY31qSwp7sLOMYxBm-Tq
  5. Concert Posters Thread

    I made some cleaners scans of some classic early 90s Frank Kozik stuff I clipped out of old magazines:
  6. What would be your ideal GNR tour?

    I wouldn't mind the constant touring without an album if they would just change the fucking setlist more than just adding new cover songs now and then. When they added Locomotive and Dead Horse, that was a great move....but neither song stayed in the setlist every night. Yet shit like Blackhole Sun and the Seeker stays. They could do like other bands and surprise audiences by playing an album top to bottom. Imagine seeing all the songs from Spaghetti Incident, all in row? They have enough songs to make it interesting, but they're choosing not to. Slash and Duff must feel so fucking dead inside, playing "Better" for the 450th time.
  7. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    Axl, Slash, and Duff. That's all that's been considered the "original" Guns N' Roses since 2016.
  8. Lies

    Well, it IS bigoted ranting.....but my response to that would be "So fucking what?" It's just words...it's just a viewpoint. I can't believe how threatened people are anytime anyone expresses a view that's in any way outside the norm. It was "shocking" 30 years ago, but it would be downright catastrophic if a popular artist released a song like this today. People are too goddamn fragile. I understand that people don't like the words in the song. If you don't like them....don't listen. Simple solution. But no, instead people will go out of their way to make sure nobody can even say these words....that nobody can even listen to the song.....then nobody can even THINK these words alone in their head. It never ends. They're just fucking words.

    Cassettes are shit. At least records are big and cool looking. Cassettes sound like shit, and look like shit. They're nothing "cool" or "chic" about them. The artwork is also tiny and cropped. God, I can't believe there's anyone out there that thinks cassettes are cool.
  10. Which cover do you prefer to the original?

    Jane's Addiction's Sympathy cover smokes all the other versions by a good margin.
  11. Coma and Jungle Demos

    And for the love of god, before we get into this argument for the millionth time, the piano only "demo" of Estranged that's on later pressings of that bootleg CD is NOT in any way, shape, or form Axl Rose. It was a piano cover posted to youtube by a professional musician and that's 100% a fact, yet there are still posters that "believe" it's Axl cause it "feels" like his playing.
  12. Your best moments of this decade?

    All of my orgasms that were in/on a woman instead of into a towel. Meeting Frank Miller, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Hisashi Eguchi. GNR reunion....for real....it was/is a big deal to me. The pizza I ate at Vito's in Baltimore last fall. Holy shit. Cleveland Cavs beating the Warriors for the NBA Championship......but that one is almost negated by the fucking Indians losing the World Series a few months later. Game of Thrones. All the nephews and nieces I gained this decade. Transformers The Movie (1986) released on Bluray.
  13. The Black Crowes "Reunion"

    The fuck you guys bitching about? They nailed "Hard to Handle" on Stern. Chris sounds one HELL of a lot of better than just about all of the 80s/90s dinosaur reunion acts on tour these days.
  14. Coma and Jungle Demos

    That bit of of Coma reminds me of the "One" demo by Metallica, that they released officially, by the way, where James didn't have lyrics so he just went "nah nah nah, nah nah nah, please god help me!"
  15. I thought the Sara Ray one was pretty weak, but she seemed to understand how to draw a woman's arm and fingers holding a cigarette, unlike this piece of garbage. Just take a second look at this one and try not to notice the weird stump that should be a right arm, and the fact that the left hand only has three fingers.
