      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. It was the first Guns album I bought with my own money. I had to go to two record shops as the first fucker wouldn't sell it to me due to the "Parental Advisory" sticker! I was 13 . I'd got UYI 1 & 2 for Christmas in 1991. But I have a soft spot for TSI? as it was the first I bought. I already loved the sex pistols but became a huge stooges fan. The Dead Boys, New York Dolls, T-Rex and Heartbreakers albums all joined my blank tape collection in the next few months 🙂 It had its place at the time and it has its place now also. I remember hearing the Manson tune at the end and all I kept thinking was "the fucking gardener.... playing guitar...... what the fuck....."
  2. This, I listen to 90% of my music live only... A band is a live band. The studio versions of a song like Double Talkin Jive from say 93 pisses all over the studio version. Albums are documents, live shows are where the songs breath. All the great bands have been great live bands. Hell yeah to Taylor and Neil Young boots!!
  3. What happened to GNR?

    Unrivalled run of albums... Of course Blue and Lonesome is not in the same league, but if Guns were to release an album I'd be happy if it met the quality of Blue and Lonesome. For any Stones fans: top 3 tracks from each album?
  4. What happened to GNR?

    The latest stones album however is amongst their best. Somewhere in the late 80s Jagger and Richards realized the stones will tower over anything else they do solo wise. Guns are the same. I just wish we got an album!
  5. What happened to GNR?

    My World. (Solo song on a Guns album) Avant-Garde as fuck. (In that context in the 90s)
  6. What happened to GNR?

    This. Ive loved this band since 89 and I'm amazed they made it through the early 90s alive, let alone they are all still alive and 3 are capable of touring. Guitar player has a defibrillator inserted in his heart at 35. Drummer has a stroke at 31 Bass player almost dies from burst pancreas at 30. Rhythm guitar player, an ex heroin dealer, alcoholic, junkie who quits the band to keep clean. A singer who has a head full of demons resembling a bag of spiders. Sone fans who liked the band are dead due to the above, the fact the band are alive is quite an achievement.
  7. Won't thine take me.......

    I think maybe "And the girls are'th pretty" is your last line!

    I agree somewhat with this, my GF got the set list (it was dated 30th) and when you look at the other songs they had as alternates, I would have sacrificed every cover (with the exception of the Jimmy Brown cover) for the alternates to be played.... Perfect Crime , Catcher in the Rye (played), Sorry, You're Crazy (fast version), I used to love her (played), There was a time. I'll take Perfect Crime, There was a time and You're Crazy over the witchita fucking lineman, black hole sun and the seeker any day...

    There was a few kicking around the stand about 35 mins ago. I was going to grab a litho but I'm not mad about the design. Picked up two shirts and a tour poster. I'll prob grab more later on! I'll be the dude with a Slane Caste Ireland NITL shirt on if you see me say hello!
