  1. Another wave of copyright strikes?

    I watched quite a few the other night so some are still out there. No idea how many (if any) have been removed.
  2. Another wave of copyright strikes?

    You could look at the tour media section. I just went there and looked through the top listing Civil War, not a single video posted in that thread works for me anymore. As someone else said, most of these videos are just casual fans with cell phones so the videos will never go up again. I don't think it's GNR pushing to do this but it's sad that they don't really care - all music fans enjoy seeing footage of their favourite artists.
  3. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Having taken into account some of the points made in the previous thread I feel a new thread is now needed, partly because the last thread has become too long and perhaps off putting to newer members. Also it seems that there is a divide between long standing posters and those joining more recently. I would like this thread to be a fresh start for ALL those that wish to contribute whilst following basic guidelines for the thread. These guidelines are as follows: DISCUSSION MUST BE FOR THE MOST PART RELEVANT TO GUNS N ROSES - ANY LENGTHY PERSONAL OR OFF TOPIC SUBJECTS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO THE ANYTHING GOES SECTION. ALL DISCUSSION OF BAND MEMBER'S FAMILIES, IN PARTICULAR MINORS, IS OFF LIMITS UNLESS IT HAS RELEVANCE TO THE BAND OR IS SOMETHING IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN (FOR EXAMPLE - AN INTERVIEW). PERSONAL ATTACKS OF OTHER FORUM MEMBERS IS PROHIBITED, POSTS WHICH BREAK RULES SHOULD BE REPORTED. NO PHOTOSHOPS OF BAND MEMBERS GETTING IT ON WITH EACH OTHER - IT SEEMS THIS HAS BEEN A CAUSE OF CONTENTION IN THE PREVIOUS THREAD AND AS IT DOESNT ADD ANYTHING OF VALUE TO DISCUSSION PLEASE REFRAIN FROM POSTING THEM HERE. Below is the link to the previous thread for reference. The last thread had many talented posters and funny, interesting discussion for the most part. It would be nice to return to that premise and to make all newcomers feel welcome. Thank You.
  4. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    This thread has become a bit personal on the last couple of pages. Please stay on topic without focusing on individual posters here.
  5. Yeah. Let's not stray too far off topic please.
  6. Not sure if there is a thread about this musical biopic yet. The first trailer was released today.
  7. The main problem with this interview is it reads like a wish list of things Slash would do if he were in charge. I would love all the 90s tour footage to be unearthed. As someone else said a double blu ray or even a Netflix type series would be awesome, it sounds like there won't be a Bohemian Rhapsody type film in the pipeline so they may as well. I think it would be of interest to people who aren't even fans just due to the nostalgia aspect. I hope the plans to get into the studio with Guns pan out but I wouldn't be surprised to hear yet another Conspirators album before a GNR one. I still sort of think we will get a GNR album eventually but I'm pretty vague on what eventually looks like - I'm fairly sure Slash feels the same way.
  8. Family Guy Yourself

    It's not a bad likeness. They lacked an option for long boots/jeans though.
  9. Perla selling Slash memorabilia

    That was my thought. He strikes me more as a saucy limerick kinda guy. Perhaps he has hidden depths we don't know about. Axl should buy the letters and turn them into a classic Guns ballad saving the situation from being a tawdry cash grab.
  10. This is what I'm wondering. That it will kick off some further dates, it doesn't seem cost effective to get a crew together for one festival. Then again I know next to zilch about the business side of touring so
  11. US Politics/Elections Thread

    The downside of this can be the the wait for things like an MRI. By the time my mother got one she was terminal. It's debatable of course how much difference a speedier service would have made but you are left wondering. Having zero cost to my son's routine day surgery and associated scans is definitely a blessing but I've not had the best experiences with acute NHS care where the stakes are higher and the quality of care varies hugely between trusts. Leeds was very good but York...not so much.
  12. More great stuff here. Thanks for posting.
  13. British Politics

    I like her too. Don't always agree with her but I like listening to her. She puts up with no shit.
  14. British Politics

    My village isn't posh but we do have a P.O, butchers, bakers/sandwich shop and chemist. We don't have a candlestick maker instead we have a picture framers (which has always struck me as odd but they've been there for decades despite the fact I've never seen anyone go in) I suppose there are some expensive houses dotted about but it's also on the edge of a largish council estate so we all mingle into one.
  15. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Surely just trolling now!
  16. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Also Slash's RQ solo live goes on too long and somewhat spoils the momentum of the song. (not sure if this qualifies as unpopular as I'm not the only one to say it)
  17. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I don't like November Rain all that much and think Estranged is the superior ballad. I liked the 2006 braids.
  18. Love, Death & Robots

    My eldest son told me about this, said it was really good. I don't tend to watch much animation but I'll probably check it out.
  19. That's pretty funny and random enough to believe Axl actually did that.
  20. What is your quintessential Guns N' Roses song?

    Yes. My two most listened to GNR songs over time (including live versions) are probably WTTJ and Estranged. Both very different yet both very GNR. OTGM is probably a close runner up with special mentions to Locomotive, Nightrain and Rocket Queen. Just to add if I had to at gun point pick one it would probably be WTTJ.
  21. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    It basically sounds like a rehash of her life with a few changed details. That's why I thought it might be quite revealing. I think I'll buy it (hard copy for Jan I guess ) maybe we can just keep posting it on the next person! It's pretty bad that the blabbermouth article only had a picture of Duff when it's her book, I mean come on I know it's not going to be a NYT bestseller but at least have the decency to picture the actual author.
  22. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I did a quick check but I didn't see this posted or discussed anywhere, apols if it has. Susan is releasing a novel next month called The Velvet Rose based on coming of age in the 90s. Is anyone a big fiction reader? I'm tempted to get it if it's on kindle just because nostalgia. Maybe it will inadvertently reveal some interesting stuff despite being technically fiction. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/duff-mckagans-wife-to-publish-first-novel-in-april/ Official book synopsis: "In the early nineties, Scarlet, a painter and high fashion model, finds herself working in some of the world 's most famous fashion capitals. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of THE WESTIES, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom. What ensues is an unhinged ride of a novel following the audacious lead female protagonist as she navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and downs of dating a legendary musician from one of the biggest rock bands in history. A riveting and heartfelt journey of figuring out one 's own path and championing that aspect to finding their dreams. Rich in spirit and relatable for all those who have ever had the courage to chase their dreams and pursue an unconventional path in this glorious world. A page-turner, frequently injected with laugh-out-loud humor, front row seat of fun debut that is being heralded as the earnest generation of authenticity of a nineties voyage, Susan Holmes McKagan shines in 'The Velvet Rose'."
  23. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    No sorry. Staying on topic is required across the board especially where GNR threads are concerned. Seriously I've championed keeping this thread going through all-sorts of nonsense as you well know. There is no anti woman conspiracy going on and this thread gets plenty of leeway with what is discussed so please stop making inflammatory posts that suggest otherwise.
  24. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    You can start whatever thread you want in AG. I suspect it will attract a bigger crowd commenting though, if you are okay with that go ahead by all means.
