  1. "Oooooohhhhh"! Well, somebody needed to tell Axl to get rid of the wannabees and the era that ruined the legacy of this band! Also, nice to remind Slash that an argument from 25 years ago isn't worth tarnishing the legacy of GNR either.
  2. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    Looks like, with the exception of festivals, they are transitioning to arenas instead of stadiums, in the states. Almost time to call back Izzy n Steve to keep the money train rolling.
  3. Fortus is an "additional musician" on Axl's payroll. I doubt he has much say in the material that Axl, Slash, and Duff will put together. I am hoping, and what I think will happen, is that it is a reasonable facsimile of the Use Your Illusions. I think it will likely sound like the material on the second half of Use Your Illusion 2.
  4. I totally agree that Izzy is a must for the songwriting process. I also 100% agree that the partnership of Izzy and Slash playing together is second to none. Unfortunately, however, I don't think Iz is coming back. Unless they give him an equal share of the loot, then maybe.
  5. Ghost on Slash's record is a damn good song with Izzy, Slash, and Ian Astbury of the Cult. https://www.songfacts.com/facts/slash/ghost
  6. Slash and Izzy go together like peanut butter and jelly. And they are the reason I loved AFD before I really knew much about each band member back in 1987.
  7. Who is your favorite member of the band? Past or present. Anyone who has been in GNR. ONE name........ready, set, go! Here's Mine: S L A S H
  8. Can't wait for the debut single of Smurfette Melissa on a GNR record playing synth with Dizzy on bongos.
  9. Axl was "working" on new music for the better part of a decade. We'll see when it actually happens.......
  10. There must be royalties paid to Izzy and Steven for the use of their image/likeness in GNR. Good news for Steven is that he is credited with co-writing all the AFD songs (along with the other original guys), so I am sure he gets royalties from that. Izzy surely gets song-writing royalties from all the 87-91 material. He is set for life even if he never shows up again.
  11. Yup, he basically tried to discount everything about Mikey. Said he can't play bass, said EVH vocals were mixed with Mike's so it wasn't so important. So messed up. Alot of VH fans really dig Mikey and it wasn't cool.
  12. There was certainly a time that EVH was miserable. His divorce from Val and the meth situation almost finished him in the early 2000's. He looked like a crack head meth addict on the "reunion" tour with Sammy in 2004. He seems to have done better in more recent years. But the VH bros sure do know how to hold a grudge. Like trying to remove Mike's image from VH first record. Low blow man.....and saying Mike can't play bass. He might not be the greatest bass player ever, but damn he does know how to play. And his vocals were a huge part of VH. I saw them with Sammy in the early 90's and it was a great show. I saw them in 2004 and it looked like an EVH train wreck. Saw them in like '07 or something with DLR back and that was an awesome show.
  13. My understanding is that this is a partnership now consisting of Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, and Michael "Duff" McKagan. There are trademarks to the Guns N' Roses name and brand with the three of them listed. All the other folks are additional musicians, hired hands.
  14. https://www.guitarplayer.com/players/roths-van-halen-sales-trounce-sammy-hagars-hold-on-there-dave The ages old battle of Dave vs. Sammy. I say you CAN like them both. DLR is a slightly better frontman for VH in my opinion. However, when it comes to other projects, Sammy wins hands-down with his solo work, Montrose, Chickenfoot, the Circle etc. Again, DLR is the more iconic frontman for VH, but Sammy is better overall. Personally, I like them both. It would be great if VH did a tour with a half and half show. 1.5 hours of Hagar and 1.5 hours of Roth. WITH Michael Anthony. That would be the Best of Both Worlds! Now, what do they do with Gary Cherone? Extreme can be the opening act.
  15. Yup, Vince is in his Fat Elvis era now. Give Axl a couple more years and a couple more trips to Taco Bell......... And yes, Sammy still has it!
