  1. TinyPic Closing

    TinyPic was used for uploading quite a lot of content here at one point. Not sure how many still use it but we may lose a lot of pictures from the forum.
  2. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    Oops I just watched it again. It's always mesmerising even after so many years. Such a simple video but carried to greatness in part by Axl's vocals and charisma. It's impossible to watch and not feel nostalgic (for those who are old enough ).
  3. *OFFICIAL* MERCHANDISE THREAD

    I don't care too much about merch even the OTT stuff but it would feel a lot less grabby if accompanied by an album which, lets face it, is what most fans want!
  4. 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.
  5. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    I don't know, Russ removed it. There was a post below that said the link didn't work so maybe that was it.
  6. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    I think it's up to individual posters whether they believe a) Little Michelle is who she says and b) her version of events. If we are to have a thread discussing Raz Cue's letter and the subsequent social media posts made by Michelle then it's reasonable that she is able to say her piece/have right of reply. The other alternative is to close the thread down and allow no discussion on the subject (people generally get mad when we do that ). Lots of people will be sceptical and that's fine as long as no one is a dick about it.
  7. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    It's not proof of anything but I just wanted to point out we have no reason to believe otherwise at this time.
  8. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    Michelle got in touch prior to making an account to say she wanted to post her side. Her location details match what we know publicly, obviously this isn't a foolproof verification but we have no reason to believe at this point she isn't who she says she is.
  9. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    I think it's fair enough to say allegedly and mygnrforum isn't taking a particular position on anything. However as we've been discussing it for 9 pages I think it's also okay for Michelle to put across what she has to say and people can make up their own minds as long as they don't make personal attacks.
  10. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    Welcome to the forum @Little Michelle Thank you for joining and posting. Can I ask that anyone responding to Michelle and her story of events remains courteous even if they disagree with anything said. Thanks
  11. I love it too. It was very much of it's time but younger generations are still inspired by it to some extent. I saw this shot of Miley Cyrus at Glastonbury the other day and it reminded me of young Axl (no idea if he was an inspiration for the outfit but it's very 80s rock)
  12. I don't think we should read too much into this. Bizarre sounding household accidents are actually quite common. Someone up thread mentioned dishwashers - I've read a few dishwasher/knife horror stories before. It's not always as weird as it sounds. Stay in bed under the duvet folks, it's the only safe thing to do!
  13. Glad he is okay. Hopefully he will be on the mend soon.
  14. The Wild Story of an Autistic GNR Fan

    Hi and welcome to the forum. I've edited your post to remove your name because it's not a great idea to post personal details on here, I've also moved the thread to a a section more appropriate for general chat. We have a past tour dates section that has threads from the two London shows if you are interested in those. I attended the same show as you and had a great time. http://www.mygnrforum.com/forum/374-2017-tour-dates/
  15. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Thanks. I knew one of them had alluded to the last leg being most definitely, totally it.
  16. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Not surprised at this news, it was fairly obvious after the Mexico dates were tacked on to the festivals another mini tour was in the works. So much for whoever it was that said NITL was done (Fernando, Slash???) Having said that people will go and have a good time so it's not the end of the world and I can't pretend I wouldn't be pleased if they came back to northern UK after only doing London last time. Doesn't bode especially well for the slightly hyped new album but that's nothing we aren't used to here!
  17. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I remember when that photo leaked of Axl visiting a teenage cancer ward. It wasn't until a few years later we heard about it. He probably does all kinds of stuff, I just don't think he's the type to talk about it.
  18. HBO minseries Chernobyl (2019)

    Yes it's really good and also quite harrowing. I can remember Chernobyl happening but only have vague memories due to my young age at the time. It was really interesting to revisit what happened as an adult now I can comprehend the enormity of it. I didn't realise it was so close to becoming an even bigger disaster on an unimaginable scale.
  19. Black Mirror Season 5

    Anyone watched this yet?
  20. If recent social media meltdowns have taught us anything it's that back peddling makes things 10 x worse. It's practically asking for tons of people to surface with endless stories disproving his embarrassing revisionism. The best thing to do is just admit it was what it was and own it (Slash) or say virtually nothing (Axl). I get that Duff had an life epiphany post pancreas explosion but he really needs to understand he can't completely reinvent himself and become the saviour of all things good and moral. Certainly not whilst he continues to rake in big bucks being in Guns N' Roses. I get the impression he's someone who is evangelical about everything he's given up and left in the past. A version of uber ex-smoker syndrome.
  21. Vote for me!

    Done. Good luck with it, hope you win.
  22. Guns N Roses sues brewery

    I get that this is just legal speak but please...
  23. Not sure if there is a thread about this musical biopic yet. The first trailer was released today.
