  1. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Yes it was long ago, that’s why there’s been 1 album since the dude left. Songs are needed if the band are to stay relevant. And I would do what I could to have him contribute 18 more. All of them guys have matured I’m sure as songwriters, but it’s not like sport, you don’t loose the ability as you get older, you can still play and write to a good old age. Having said that Writing songs with Izzy must be like playing football with Messi...
  2. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    The biggest want/topic for over 20 years, was for the original 5 to write and record an album again. At least among the Guns fans I know. Yeah great Slash is back, where’s the music. Oh... Wheres Izzy. He was involved in the writing of 18 tracks with Guns and a few of those were solo compositions. He might mean fuck all to the general public, but he means a lot to the tunes....
  3. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    How hard would it have been to work out a deal based solely on the NITL tour? Yes the original agreement is in place, but face it. Axl was in Vegas before the reunion. Why not leave the agreement made in the 90s by Izzy, retroactive to all the merch recordings yadda yadda in place, and have NEW merch agreements in place, new agreements on royalties from possible releases from the tour, split the loot evenly FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE TOUR. Shit band though they are, I think the beach boys have done this a few times in the past. The Mike love only beach boys stop touring, the originals or what’s left alive get back together for a tour as the beach boys and then it’s back to mike love in charge again Brian Wilson gone and they tour again as the beach boys. (Something like this, correct me if wrong) So who had a problem with everyone getting a fair share of something for an 18 month period, or what ever the proposed length of the tour was. Izzy signs and flakes out he’s in breach of contract and all that entails. I think Slash & Duff bought back in as full members and Izzy was the cost. Frank, Fortus, dizzy & Melissa are on Axls payroll and out of his percentage I’m guessing.
  4. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I wonder if Frank is miked properly or loud enough in the mix? Too much low end in his mix? I wonder only as listening to Sorum with Guns, even live he pissed me off, it just lacked a bit of the skip or energy or drive that Adler had. Sorum sounded more leaden and heavy. Whereas i seen him with Velvet Revolver and he sounded clearer and more high end. I realized he just had a shit live mix with Guns. The Tokyo videos drum sound is puke. The snare sounds like a Tom almost. Frank seems at times to wobble or waver at certain points in songs, but his mix is shit live too. So it find it hard to judge the dude. He doesn’t seem to be doing anything wrong, yet something doesn’t sound right. Its like Kenny Jones after Moon....
  5. Yeah I was kinda miffed at that, he’s had it grey for so long...
  6. I have a strange question, when I’m looking at match of the day or whatever, where was the stage in relation to the stadium? Was it left end or right end... 😂 I think right but I’m not sure. Every west ham game that’s come on since I’ve been in that stadium makes me ask this question.. Where was the stage! What did you think of Gallagher that day?
  7. I agree the B stage is nice to have back and you’re spot on, a laid back gig ain’t a bad gig. I wish they would do an acoustic tour to be honest, I think it would suit at this stage of their careers. Break out can’t be satisfied and some of that older blues and Dear Doctor schlock country that they do so well. I’m hoping against hope that there will be another run of dates in England before they wrap up. It’s cheaper for me to follow them over there with E50 Ryanair flights etc... I’ve seen 16 times, hoping to break 20 😂 Seen them in Wembley Stadium 99, Dublin1 & Dublin 2 & London 1 03, London 06, Slane 07, London 07, London 12, London 13, Toronto 13, Vegas 16, Dublin 17, London 1 & 2 17, Southampton 17, Coventry 17. Denver & Seattle puts me up to 18. Hopefully a few shows in Europe next year get me 20!! And for so many years I never thought I’d afford or would be able to see them. I loved them from age 12 because of 72 tour bootlegs my uncle had. Raw as fuck and just rocking. I didn’t discern between the sex pistols, the stones, the doors, Nirvana, Oasis whatever the fuck guitar bands I liked, I liked. And the stones were as raw as Nirvana or the pistols in their day.
  8. Last years gigs were amongst the best I’ve seen in 20 years of Stones gigs. It’s never going to be 1972 again, but as long as they’re up there playing, making mistakes, letting the songs breathe, I’m happy. Keith was better last year than when I seen them in 07. Songs im not a fan of on record like Midnight Rambler, should only be heard live. And they killed it a few times last year. Brilliant stuff. My dream opener.
  9. I’m avoiding the YouTube vids, looking forward to Denver & Seattle. How are they sounding compared to last year powerage? Incidentally, how many times have you seen the stones 😂
  10. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    If what you say is true, why did he put himself in the same situations again. Eg my post on the Chicago incident? Yes, English is my second language.
  11. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    The point I believe “Michelle” was making is, Duff and Slash have brought up versions of the story in their books. You don’t agree with her story. She didn’t agree with their stories. She wants to rectify this, she may be faceless but their is a campaign going to change the story on record. Will we know the story. Most likely not. if there was no merit to what “michelle” is saying. She will be legally pursued. If what Mick Wall said in his book had no merit, he would have been sued, if the articles published back in the 80s & early 90s related to these stories had no merit the magazine/paper would have been sued, if Slashs book and its story about Axl getting angry when some girls wouldn’t “fuck all the guys in the room” (this to me in ANY setting is a mental request) he would be sued, Axl would sue these people. The ones he dealt with in court were the ones he had to, they took the cases against him. What I’ve said all along, and say again, is why are there so many stories of a similar nature to what “michelle” has said happened. Her story might not be 100%, but she is definitely saying Slash's and Duffs are not 100%.
  12. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    You can’t say what Slash has said about the behaviour he witnessed in Chicago as no evidence, nor can you say the court depositions on record for Erin or Stephanie are no evidence. I’ve also read quotes from others on his behaviour towards women. I have enough to call what I think on this. And not in the last 2 days. His wanker behaviour has been known about and in print and discussed by himself since the 80s
  13. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    My critical thinking is not confined to the info in this thread. I’ll say this clearly. I don’t know what went down with “little Michelle”. I wasn’t there. Have I read in multiple books, articles and heard in media Axls stories of violence of some kind against women. Yes.

    Maybe some of them were men too.
  15. Deadland Ritual (Matt Sorum’s new band)

    Well impressed with how Sorum is handling the sabbath tunes.
