  1. Really great analysis done by both Blackstar and Fashionista!
  2. Am I misreading the Forbes article? Slash hasn't seen Keith Richards since the GNR breakup and saw him for the first time at the concert in the desert?!
  3. I've been saying this for years both here and in the other forum. Great interview! I enjoyed reading it. I think we'll see a new album.
  4. Do you think you ever out grow GNR?

    I've been a fan since October 1987. I have NEVER stopped listening to them. It's kinda become part of my personality. People know that GNR is my favorite band. I don't see myself changing that. I'll be listening to them until the day I die.
  5. What is Axl up to these days?

    None taken. I was just a little confused as to why you were confused.

    At the same time, you got to understand that for them this is a job. I'm sure that it gets on their nerves when they have bad days. I know that my acquaintances are not "Ebayers", but they probably do annoy the heck out of the celebrities who don't want to be bothered sometimes. Working for a financial news company and being in NYC, I've seen celebrities. Once I walked side by side with Angelina Jolie at the office. Another time I was walking to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and I saw Rod Stewart taking a break and smoking a cigarette by himself at Rockefeller Center. Neither times did I ask for an autograph nor pictures. I kinda figured that they just wanted to do their thing and leave them be. The only time that I got a picture with a celebrity was with Jon Bon Jovi. He was at my job for a charity event. Since the charity event was also a meet and greet for employees with Jon, there was a photographer there. Speaking of Jon Bon Jovi, there's a video out there of him at a wedding. A woman was doing Living on a Prayer for karaoke at the wedding. She pulls Jon by the arm to come up and sing with her. You can tell by his facial expression that he was annoyed and didn't want to sing. He did so anyway, but it was obvious that he just didn't want to do it. I think people need to be more cognizant as to how celebrities may or may not want to be bothered sometimes.

    There's a couple who are acquaintances of mine. They go up to any celebrity, wrestler, or anyone famous and get a picture with them. They managed to get one with Axl. I had heard through mutual friends that celebrities knows this couple by name and tries to avoid them whenever possible nowadays.

    This isn't mistreatment, though. This is just the fact that you don't agree with things. This is totally different. I didn't agree with Axl on taking over the GNR name and hiring people that should have never been in GNR during the NU-GNR era. I didn't agree with the $1,000 box set either. With that being said, people have the choice to buy the boxset, Nightrain membership, and "VIP" tickets. Some people who bought the Locked & Loaded set enjoyed it. My personal thoughts on it is that it was crap. Still, people had that choice and need to accept the responsibility if they are not happy with it rather than placing blame on a band. I think there hasn't been a release of no new music as a result of two people returning to the band. To build or rebuild chemistry takes time. As a result, it's much easier to just release something old than create something new. I really can't fault them for that. Lastly, I think SoulMaster nailed it.

    I totally agree with you. Russ still has not answered my question either. I never listened to his podcast nor will I do so. This isn't meant to be disrespectful, but I really don't have any interests to listen. I'm very unclear as to how he thinks fans are being mistreated. I definitely do not feel mistreated by GNR. I don't always agree with how things are done, but never felt mistreated.
  10. What is Axl up to these days?

    I don't think certain fans gets it. Sometimes the comments are really laughable. I'm also looking at the comments for the fan forum regarding the NY Giants. The Giants lost their first preseason game. Some of the comments are so outrageous that it can be compared to some comments here.
  11. What is Axl up to these days?

    My apologies, but I didn't listen to the podcast.
  12. What is Axl up to these days?

    Ok. What exactly would you like done differently?
  13. What is Axl up to these days?

    Isn't the "how the fans feel they've been treated by GNR" a sense of entitlement by those fans?? If you think or feel that you've been mistreated somehow then why are you a fan? I'm not pointing it as you. I'm just saying in general. If I felt that way, I wouldn't even bother being a fan. I would listen to something else or do another activity. At some point, people need to take ownership of their thoughts and feelings. GNR doesn't owe you anything as a fan and vice versa. GNR is a band that I have listened for 31 years now. I'll probably enjoy them for the rest of my life. I may not always agree with things, especially with the NU-GNR era, but I never felt owed. Maybe some people need to think about this and just enjoy them. They won't be around forever.
  14. Please NO remix album!!! Slash and Duff are back in the band. Not some doofus wearing a bucket on his head pretending to be Michael Meyers. I want to hear a new song or songs by this lineup, which has THREE original members.
  15. Don't forget that Slash wasn't too thrilled with the OIAM since he had family members who were ticked off with him.
