  1. I had a tape with the November Rain demo in 1988 and I always assumed it was him even if it didn't say.
  2. I live very close to Mohegan Sun but I will not be attending. It's gonna take a better deal than free to get me to a Dizzy and Frank show.
  3. The Replacements weren't hipsters. Far from it.
  4. It doesn't need a remaster. Sounds great as it is. But a nice package with some demos, alternate versions, live stuff etc? That would be great.
  5. Not one of the very best but better than he gets credit for. As has been said, he is solid, has great tone and comes up with memorable parts. And really, what else is he supposed to to besides that? That's the gig.
  6. Tommy has played on more great records than anyone else that's ever been in Guns. This is indisputable. He was touring and recording years before Axl even left Indiana. Six classic records under his belt before Appetite even came out! Also lol @ this 'he bullied Buckethead thing'. Stop with that already.
  7. I don't understand why they wouldn't do something to commemorate this. It doesn't really cost them anything and someone else would be doing all the actual work. All they have to do is listen or look at stuff and say yes or no. What could the downside possibly be?
  8. TSI was okay for what it was, or what it was meant to be...a sort of stop gap. The problem is that nothing came after. That was it. And as the last statement of a band, which is what it turned out to be.... it's a pretty weak one.
  9. That statement is just embarrassing. Poor misunderstood Axl. ' Manson's name coupled with mine' - pretty sure it was you that did that, not the media.
  10. Yeah, I don't know about that one. This guy comes off pretty self-promoting/mythologizing every time I've heard him. Pretty full of shit basically.
  11. I don't if you can really put the number that high. The Illusions albums were huge sellers and they were kind of ubiquitous in the early 90s, sort of like Nevermind or the Black album...stuff that everyone who was into rock seemed to have. So even if you didn't own them yourself someone you knew had them and you'd hear it at parties etc.
  12. Still sucks and it's an insult to the fans to play so much of it. People don't want to hear that shit. Yeah I know some people do but the majority don't. And either way five fucking songs is ridiculous.
  13. "The name does come from mine and Traci’s as the original inspiration but was something I played with not Traci and Guns was Guns before Traci joined. It was Guns Before I knocked on Izzy’s window. Earlier I had gotten Tracii to use the name Guns (as he had mentioned a girl had called him Mr. Guns sometime) so he’d stop calling his band Persian Rose. So I guess we have the girl to thank." It's hard to tell exactly what he's saying here but if it's that he was using the name Guns N' Roses before he played with Izzy and Tracii then that is obviously bullshit.
  14. Well I said first decade not first records. The Beatles' whole discography only spans seven years. Besides, their early stuff is amazing. A Hard Day's Night is easily one of their greatest albums and that came out in '64.
  15. All bands do their best work in their first decade. Drugs or no drugs.
