  1. What Made Guns N' Roses Special?

    It can ultimately come down to the two founding members. Axl and Izzy were the yin and yang that didn’t really belong in a band together but ended up creating a unique formula. Then you bring in the punk rock ethos of Duff and combine that with the showmanship of Slash and that’s another two dimensions. GNR is the fourth dimension of rock.
  2. European Leg

    Special guest normally means the support act is someone you’ve heard of.
  3. Solutions

    Maybe we should all become Metallica fans and turn it into a Metallica forum.
  4. Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Poison 2020 Stadium Tour

    It’s always surprised me that Iron Maiden haven’t been able to play Wembley Stadium at any point in their career.
  5. Vocal Coach Reacts to GN'R

    The Ken Tamplin guy must have struck gold recently. The SCOM video was recommended to me by YouTube the day before this thread was made. The vocal coach genre of video basically thrives on the coach being an asshole and, yeah, he’s pretty good at that. Personally, I stopped watching when he started going on about the wound on his belly.
  6. I don’t think there are any acts who appreciate motionless crowds pointing cameras at them for an entire show. Certainly not ones that toured before it became the norm. Even for fans, you always see the comment ‘not a single phone’ in videos of old shows with a great atmosphere on YouTube.
  7. Copyright Strikes....

    They were only responsible in the sense that after all those years of mismanagement Axl was left with no choice but to get Slash back in to save his legacy. To the best of our knowledge, they also managed to take Izzy (who had worked with Duff the previous year and showed up to play with Axl and Slash on numerous occasions) and completely insult and alienate him with their offers for the reunion.
  8. Kiss just extended their End of the Road tour by another 75 dates. No matter how undignified it gets for GNR, there will always be Kiss. Always. Doing a farewell tour.
  9. Copyright Strikes....

    It’s like being a Manchester Utd supporter. I still support that club despite it being run by people who are (1) incompetent and (2) just basically a bunch of utter assholes.
  10. Your favourite live era

    GNR’s live legacy is of tours that started out well, went on far too long, ran out of steam, became an embarrassment and resulted in members departing for various reasons. As NITL moves into 2020, history is likely to repeat itself again.
  11. Live Era '16 - '20

    If it’s anything like the last one, it won’t matter what shows they pick. You’ll barely recognise them from the actual performances.
  12. 10/11/19 - Austin, TX - Austin City Limits

    That setlist is basically the perfect NITL one without all the aggravating covers that nobody ever asked for. Only lacking Don’t Cry in the encore. Just a shame that chopping out the filler didn’t do Axl’s voice any good (probably the opposite).
  13. The GNR camp is what it is. Super fan or not, leaking CDs worth of material was never going to go down well and, frankly, he’s gotten off lightly. Whoever actually leaked the stuff, he put himself in the spotlight for the clout and bragging rights. Difficult to resist, I’m sure, but it was the wrong move. But it speaks of a bigger problem of an act that is now furious that its fan base got to hear music after waiting 20 years for it to be put out officially. Easiest way to control leaks is to release the music you make yourself. It’s not rocket science. Axl ain’t Prince. Prince might have the bigger vault but he never stopped putting out new music. Axl and his management screwed GNR over more than piracy ever could.
  14. 09/25/19 - Charlotte, NC - Spectrum Center

    Axl should let Melissa blow the whistle for Paradise City to get the timing right. It would be her crowning moment as a member of GNR.
  15. Hard School on GNR's setlist!

    Axl: ‘This next song is about Slash...’
