  1. #WokeAxl

    He used to have panic attacks, right? Self medicated with tons of booze for years to the point of exploding his pancreas. Poor Michael, glad he managed to set it all straight. Must have been a nightmare.
  2. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    1) Reckless Life (just so much energy when they play this live) 2) Nightrain (best whole band arragements and dynamics of AFD) 3) Don't Cry (Izzy's 100% typical composition and Adler's drum parts are just so naively perfect, giving it a teenage heartbroken feeling) 4) Rocket Queen (GNR best song on AFD)
  3. Significant band locations in LA?

    I guess it was te Whisky A GoGo rooftop.. he could't find his contact lenses that day?
  4. Guns N' Roses featured on Breaking The Band

    That you so much buddy!
  5. Guns N' Roses featured on Breaking The Band

    Anyone could find an online stream to watch this yet? Can't watch it on Reelz whatev's.... Thank you in advance!
  6. Significant band locations in LA?

    That should be Gardner St.? 1506 N Gardner St? Pretty close to Guitar Center. The one where they built the "wooden platform" inside if I remember correctly...
  7. Funniest lyric

    "When I come home late at nightDon't ask me where I've beenJust count your stars I'm home again" Just priceless Axl. Or Izzy? LOL
  8. Is GNR the most underrated band ever?

    That's why I said 1986 till mid-1988... they weren't selling much back then, if at all, hahah Ironically, that's what I label the Best Period and Artistic Peak of the Band (Fall of 1987 being the absolute apex, see Ritz 1987). And that's why it's underrated.
  9. Is GNR the most underrated band ever?

    The band that spanned the period from 1986 till mid 1988, before the Australian dates at any rate, was surely the most underrated band ever. Of any musical genre. They were a work of Genius.
  10. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    It was here. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/guns-n-roses/1986/music-machine-los-angeles-ca-7bd6f684.html First video-bootleg I've ever had the chance to see of GNR pre-AFD, on some copied VHS... back in 1992, IIRC.
  11. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    My first line of thinking exactly. Or perhaps, he had to hide longer cause he was more into the investigation/alleged lawsuit etc... so he didn't/couldn't "officially join" the band until things and the dust of them had truly settled? Let me add this: I always felt since seeing Dizzy officially into the band roster, that it was some kind of a favor. Surely to Dizzy, cause they absolutely didn't need an additional keyboard player at that point to play ridiculously redundant keys on Civil War (so, 1990 already?).... he almost, ALMOST ruined the version of the song.

    THIS. 100% accurate. To a T.
  13. You people keep confusing potential attendance at shows/sales with potential BETTERMENT of musical production, with regards to Izzy/Steven's addition to the roster. Majority of my job is to assess odds of scenarios happening in the present and future from past instances, recent and remote, and get paid for it (or pay out of my pocket when being wrong). Analyzing the history of the band, it's extremely clear to me adding Izzy and/or Steven to the band, instantly increases the odds of getting better new music BY THE TENFOLDs. Sure, you can cite the small size of the samples, but hey, you gotta take what you have at hand. If you measure the greatness of a band and its music by the number of people at concerts or how successful it is as a BUSINESS, and rationalize the choices the band has to make in accordance with, then well... fuck you. GNR didn't start that way, pretty much the opposite. Why the fuck are you even listening to this band? That's basically all they stood for, when it came to music. At least until 1990...
  14. I am a purist. And no, without AFD5 it's not a legitimate GNR release. As simple as that. I love UYI, and still consider it "legitimate" because most of it was composed while all the guys were together. So even though Sorum does a despicable job, ruining the original feel of such compositions, you can still smell and feel the original vibe oozing through and that was enough for me, coupled with the fact that some of the songs were absolute masterpieces.
