  1. Glass half full/empty argument. If you're happy with the band as a nostalgia stadium thing then yes, that is certainly the healthier position to adopt, but nobody can seriously question why fans are disgruntled with a band who released one album in twenty-seven years and that is accepting the legitimacy of ''nugnr''; if you are one of the many who do not (accept the legitimacy) then this band creatively ended in 1991, and that there is this whole era, twenty-seven years, of mostly shit (breakup, repeated sojourns, nugnr, nostalgia, quasi-reunion) which did not deliver-up one note of original music. Or to put it another way, Guns creatively ended in their sixth year (1985 - 1991) but continued on for another twenty-seven years and counting! The Rolling Stones (1962 - ) had fifteen more albums following their sixth year (which would have been 1968, the year of the glorious Beggars Banquet). It is an unbelievable set of affairs. And if you accept the ''nugnr'' thing, that is still one album, a ten year old album, in twenty-seven years, a period which saw three original Stones' albums, five original Kiss albums, four original AC/DC albums (I'm selecting overtly ''nostalgia'' bands here to try and manifest a benefit of the doubt for Guns N' Roses's predicament), etc. (The situation is probably worse if you are an overt ''Axl fan'', as at least the more general fans or the fans who lean more to other members such as Slash have the solo/side projects to alleviate their barrenness. If you are a Rose fan, your guy has only released fifteen new songs [officially] in twenty-seven years!)
  2. Spectre found itself pulling in too many directions. It found itself wrapping up the Vesper/White-Quantum mess which Quantum of Solace buggered-up so badly. It decided to carry-on the threads concerning Bond's childhood from Skyfall; it wanted to reintroduce Blofeld. And then it simply had to deliver-up an excellent follow-up to Skyfall. It was pulling apart at the seams! It is still a decent Bond though because, A/ It was directed well and moderately suspenseful, B/ It had a couple of sexy Bond girls C/ It wasn't Quantum of Solace!
  3. Ringo Starr

    Harold Macmillan (''winds of change'', in Africa) was one of the most rampant decolonisers. Thatcher negotiated the Hong Kong handover.
  4. Ringo Starr

    I'd like to see less of these things, and more for Samaritanism, but Ringo is a lot more deserving than sports guys who get their gongs when they are still mid career because Britain has won something, a la the 2005 Ashes side and the Beijing-London Olympians.
  5. Ringo Starr

    Lennon returned his 1965 MBE in 1969 for various cold war related protestations (and Cold Turkey slipping down the charts!), although technically speaking he still held his MBE as there is constitutionally no renunciation mechanism. I highly doubt he would've been granted one therefore, or accepted one - unless he pulled a Jagger, ditching lefty activism and becoming a institutional-yuppie sort of character.
  6. Happy St Patrick’s Day

    Why are you picking on me?
  7. It is not a question of believing (or disbelieving) anyone as this interview consists of predominantly Stradlin speaking about an upcoming show on the 26th March, and that their bass player is Duff - I think he is actually mentioned as the ''new guy'' or something similar. It is irrefutable proof that McKagan was in place before the 26th March. The flyer was clearly printed before the change in personnel.
  8. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2017 Edition

    Arguably, Fellini's last undisputed masterpiece. Amarcord (1974) (Not that I'm saying he didn't make truly great movies again, films like Casanova, etc. - just if we are going to be really precise on what constitutes a ''masterpiece''). 8½ (1963) SARAGHINA!
  9. Kurt Cobain hated Italians ?

    Cheeky bastards, but I suppose you live by the sword you die by the sword.
  10. The British Kim and Kanye

    More to the point lads,
  11. Kurt Cobain hated Italians ?

    I have to admit to possessing a tremendous dislike about wearing trainers for any activity other than sport, especially white trainers. I find it very ''plebeian''. The trainers plus jeans plus (football) replica shirt combo, de rigueur for most British males. Horrendous.

  13. what's up with all these sex scandals?

    Apparently Casanova was a paedo.
  14. Kurt Cobain hated Italians ?

    I do not think Obama or Mick would ever wear trainers if they wanted to look respectable - well, maybe Mick in his ''1980s days''. Jordan is a sportsman. Chavs, Trainers a prerequisite.
