  1. The money thing could easily be seen as greed. But think of this: being a musician, living the rock & roll life, drugs, women, making absurds amounts of money, playing for thousands of people every night... and being I don’t know... how old was he around that time? It must be mindblowing. Anyone in his position would do the same calculations in their head, Matt just happened to say it out loud. Also, unlike Axl, Slash, Izzy and Duff, Sorum kinda walked into that situation when it was already set up. The other guys transitioned to it with their own decisions, working hard, composing, touring, etc, they gradually (although very quickly) went from being on the streets to being millionaires. I don’t see that situation with the kid as a dick move. ”hey kid, i’m workig here, come back in 20 minutes and i’ll sign your shit”. You can’t please everyone all the time. I guess my point is that we can also make positive –or not so negative– assumptions based on the little info we’ve got. I do agree that Matt had a more confrontational attitude and even acted like a douche. That HOF thing was just classles and completely unnecessary.
  2. *FAKE* Silkworms Intro clip

    All the material that was allegedly recorded by the band through those years and didn’t have vocals. I’m sorry I can’t provide a source or specific member/interview, but if I remember correctly, it was mentioned that there were A LOT of ideas and songs recorded that didn’t have lyrics or vocals.

    I liked it when I first listened to it as a teenager. Nowadays, while I don’t hate it, I rarely go back to that album. It’s just cockrock, but the music is still enjoyable. I guess I grew out of it.

    Funny thing is that most likely 99.9% of the material recorded after UYI has no vocals.
  5. It’s an incredible song, but I truly believe GNR should get someone more creative for their big screen videos/graphics. Everything they’ve used looks dated and tacky as fuck. I know GNR have never been an artsy band, but there is a lot of wasted potential there to improve the stage setting.
  6. Next GN'R Album Name Rumors?

    Your post gave me herpes and super AIDS.
  7. Great compilation @RONIN! Thanks for the time and effort. What happened during the HOF between Matt and Steven? I disn’t care for that whole event, so I never bothered to watch it
  8. Not just that. It’s funny how he projects himself (or his old self) on Izzy, making him look unreliable, like never knowing if he would even show up or not. It’s laughable.
  9. I never said that it was Axl’s fault that Slash and Duff were fucked up on drugs and alcohol. In a weird way, it was heroin and alcohol what kept GNR from imploding way earlier.
  10. More like a coping mechanism. If Slash and Duff hadn’t been so fucked up on heroin and booze, GNR would have ended during the UYI tour.
  11. Well, we don’t know for sure. It could have been a tantrum, or an epic discusion with Axl because Iz told Beta to shut up when she was telling him what to do? Who knows. The stars were not aligned, it just wasn’t meant to happen. With the gag order in place and running we will never know what happened.
  12. I didn’t read any insults or offensive language of high caliber, not even a “fuck” intended as an insult. I guess I missed it, or people here are too sensitive. Fuck it.
  13. That seems unnecessary and excessive. The guy has a point of view, as respectable as anyone else’s. I find that’s the whole point of a forum, otherwise it’s just a circle jerk or a bunch of guys sucking each other off and patting each other on the back just because they have the same opinion.
  14. But we do have already a more or less clear picture of how dysfunctional that whole era was, from the recording of UYI to all the shit going on on tour (the theme parties, axl showing up late or not showing up at all, rants, legal issues, etc). He could bring another angle of the same stories, butI doubt there will be anything new from that era. What interests me more is the aftermath of the UYI tour, the period he was in gnr after that until he was out. Also having giving us more insight on VR, which to be honest I know nothing about.
