  1. Wacky World of The Ominous Izzy Stradlin and NO! Gang

    I believe Jimmy said in an interview that Izzy hadn't spoken to Chalo since the band broke up, so I'm sure Izzy was just as out of the loop as we were. But I do see where the girl was coming from about the tweets. They did seem impersonal, but knowing that Izzy hadn't spoken to Chalo in many years + the fact that Izzy is always a little awkward. I wasn't too surprised by that. I think Izzy meant well with the tweets and that's what matters. At this point, I think people are just grieving and they want somebody to blame because this shouldn't have happened... but we can't sit around blaming people. That isn't going to bring him back. I just hope that going forward if something happens like this again that people speak up.
  2. Pretty sure waiting outside somebodies private home still counts as stalking...

    I just feel so gutted by this whole thing. I know I've talked about it before in the Women's thread, but when I was going though all of my health issues the Ju Ju Hounds album is usually what got me through the bad days. Knowing that somebody who affected my life in such a positive way died because he couldn't get help is just fucked up.

    That's heartbreaking. I wish they had said something I'm sure fans would have donated to help.

    He was only 56. Are we sure this info is legit? --- Edit: Nevermind. I guess if Jimmy confirmed it then it must be true. Fuck... he was so young.

    Guys can we please stop arguing... I don't want to see this thread locked.
  11. Wacky World of The Ominous Izzy Stradlin and NO! Gang

    I don't think he cares about any of it anymore.
  12. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Are you insinuating I lied in the transcript? I put timestamps in there for a reason... Go listen to the interview yourself if you think I made it up. Also the interview was with Martin Glover, who worked closely with Axl... It's not really speculation when it's coming from somebody who knows Axl personally. Glover could be lying but that still doesn't fall under speculation. As for our discussion, this is a GNR forum. Where people discuss any and all news about GNR and it's members. If that's going to upset you then you probably shouldn't read here.

    I thought cocaine made you skinny? Isn't it a appetite suppressant and that's why most cokeheads are so thin? (Like the fashion models in the early 90s for example)
  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    That surprised me too. Possibly cocaine or alcohol? There's always been rumors but until this interview I've never heard somebody call him an addict before.
  15. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Timestamps & Summary: 4:56 - How did you end up hooking up/meeting Guns n’ Roses? Went to a Sushi place with Axl & Doug - I’m assuming he means Goldstein? He didn't say his full name. - He doesn’t answer whether or not he has met the other members of the band. 5:24 - Was Axl a fan of The Killing Joke? Doesn’t know if Axl liked the band but knows he was aware of them. Then starts randomly talking about jamming with Axl saying the first thing they did was go into a studio and play around. Martin on bass, Axl on guitar. 5:55 - Axl was constantly listening to new music around 50-100 CDs a week. So he thinks that’s how axl became aware of The Killing Joke as well as Martin’s other projects. 6:25 - Was Axl a good guitar player? Axl was just learning how to play when they met and was taking lessons from Buckethead. 8:10 - Talks about Axl working from 9PM - 9AM and how he thought that was a symptom of Axl’s depression. Martin then says Axl hadn’t sung in 18 months so during this entire time he was only directing everyone else. 8:30 - Talks about turning Axl’s pool house into a studio so they could work during the day and write songs acoustically to get Axl singing again. Says he did well “away from the circus of the studios” and they got a few good songs out of those sessions. 9:15 - What songs did he and Axl Work on officially since he was only credited for Madagascar? Says he’s thankful that Axl credited him but very little of what they worked during that time ended up in the final cut of Madagascar. Then says the only other song they worked on that ended up on the album was Postitute 9:57 - How long did you work with Axl? Only worked with Axl for a few months (audio cut out here so I didn’t get his full answer) He then started to push Axl to record and master the songs and that’s when he started getting told by management “We’ll let you know when he’s ready to record” 10:40 - What was Axl’s hang up? Why did he never want to start recording? Basically says Axl was too much of a perfectionist. 13:00 - Were you pressured by the record company to push Axl to record? No, they were completely hands off and letting him take his time. 16:00 - Did you ever talk to Axl about why he wanted to re-recording AFD? Martin thinks Axl wanted to prove that he could do it on his own without the others. That he wanted to convince everyone that he w as Guns n’ Roses. 17:00 - Were Matt & Duff still involved or had they already left when he started working with Axl? They were already gone. They only had Buckethead and a top session drummer (he doesn’t name who the drummer was) 19:08 - What was your impression of Chinese Democracy once it was finally released? Thought it was a “noble, brave statement.” 19:55 - What made you move on and stop working with guns n’ roses? They never called him back. 20:05 - What was your impression of Axl during the time you worked with him? He was straight, clean, sober and a great piano player. Martin thought Axl was depressed and "the Brazilian housekeeper was running the show". Axl was also getting into spiritual stuff and was “reconnecting” to try and heal himself from his life and addictions. It was “classic hollywood recluse stuff.” 21:25 - Did he and Axl ever talk about the former members? Rarely. Martin then said that Axl told him he never rehearsed with the original band when they were writing Appetite. Axl would always stand outside the room and work on the vocals by himself. Also said Axl didn’t allow the others to hear the vocals until he was ready to record them. Hope that all makes sense. Martin is really scatter brained so between the audio cutting out and him jumping around from thought to thought it was a little hard to transcribe the conversation.
