  1. Rare Duff McKagan Interview 1991 On Pirate Radio

    Oh, I was being sarcastic, hence the 'heh'. Should have used the Or the
  2. Rare Duff McKagan Interview 1991 On Pirate Radio

    Oh god, poor woman, that must have been a hard interview for her. Duff was not particularly coherent, or helpful towards the end. But there were some little gems. Duff on singing on the album: "If you could call it singing." Awww... Having aspirations, even in 91, of going back to school, most of which he missed due to being in a band since he was 15 Not telling which strings he uses because he doesn't want to 'endorse brands'. Heh... Wanting to play on multiple instruments for the album was not to do with his ego. And it does come through clearly that he just loves playing music. That album must have offered some semblance of stability (he was always trying to establish pockets of stability in his life) amidst the storm that was GNR at that time. Not wanting to elaborate on the meaning behind Believe In Me beyond saying 'it's personal'. Mumbling incoherently about his tattoos. Thanks again Sid, you've come up with another interesting vid.
  3. Unofficial GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

    This band...and everyone associated with it... I give up trying to guess what's going on.
  4. November Rain: 823 Million YouTube Views

    Wow, where are you? Must be a great place for your radio station to be playing Anastasia quite often. I can tell you the radio where I am, does not, nowhere near it. Rock? What's that? Anastasia isn't bad at all, but I'm afraid I can't get past my own prejudice - to me it sounds like a poor man's Journey. And if I want to hear that kind of music, I'll just listen to Journey. I really like the verse/chorus but not in love with Slash's soloing on that. And it is absolutely categorically not even approaching SCOM status, sorry! lol
  5. Don't get me started on the revisionist history concerning Nirvana! LOL So many myths are perpetuated about Nirvana, for instance that right from the get-go they dominated and were worshipped, that they singled-handedly killed off bands like GNR, that Kurt was 'authentic' (fans ended up turning against him because he was perceived to be enjoying the millionaire lifestyle he was supposed to reject amongst a host of other reasons. He was also seen as being controlled by Courtney, and the Social Services investigation into their parenting and alleged drug use during Courtney's pregnancy harmed the band's image tremendously), that they were more popular than any other band, the list goes on. It wasn't until after Kurt's death that the backlash was forgotten about and many things swept under the carpet to create a new narrative where Nirvana assumed almost mythological status in music history. If GNR were considered decadent dinosaurs,, Kurt was, in the months leading up to his death, considered a joke. Nirvana had become the Kurt and Courtney train wreck and there were rumours Nirvana might not last i.e. they'd break up/implode GNR style. For anyone who's interested, this excerpt from Killing Yourself To Live by Chuck Klosterman who is basically a music journalist/critic, sums up what was happening during the Nirvana backlash really well. What he says certainly resonates with me and what I remember of attitudes towards Nirvana at the time. Fun fact: when Pearl Jam's Vs came out, it shifted something close to a million units in a week, breaking GNR's previous record for UYI.
  6. @Blackstar Am I mistaken or did Izzy take on Niven as his manager after he left Guns? Might explain why he never said anything against him? Don’t know if I’m right about that though.
  7. Incidentally, Brain also had a thing about 'vibes' and especially room vibes. He didn't like their studio at the time, because Kenny G had recently recorded there and he was convinced Kenny G vibes would be bad for the creative process (I actually LOLd when I read that). It was Brain's idea to move them all upstairs to what used to a Masonic Temple and he liked it because it was cold and spooky, and that's where they stayed for about 7 years. I mean, you put a guy like that with a guy like Axl, and a guy like Buckethead, and throw in Tommy Stinson, put them all in a spooky recording studio...you got a pretty high weirdness factor.
  8. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Interesting collection of Slash interviews from 95. I think most we've seen before but his comment about Stephanie Seymour I hadn't heard, 11:03 mark. He says he doesn't like or dislike her; she's useless.
  9. GNR scored number 1 in at least one poll: most decadent band. How apt! Thanks for this @Blackstar Really interesting to see how certain bands were viewed back then. Look at The Cure in the Best Band of All Time category. I certainly remember how well liked they were, credible and cool - they were a huge commercial success but they were also considered 'alternative'. They just faded away for some reason. I wonder if anyone here even remembers them? Released a lot of albums too, I think. Anyway, I loved them back in the day. It's amazing when you think about it, that GNR having such a small back catalogue and it being so old have still managed to catch the nostalgia wave. I guess it just goes to show how unique they were. There really wasn't, and hasn't been, another band like the old GNR.

    Well, his name appears on their website? Does that mean anything? https://www.rockhall.com/inductees/guns-n-roses
  11. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I believe he is inducted into the RNRHOF but I cannot for the life of me recall where I read this. I'm sure @Blackstar will come to our rescue again! ^^
  12. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    We have discussed whether or not we all saw Slash's dick or his balls so I don't think any subject is considered inappropriate here! lol I recall cock rings being discussed at one point!
  13. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I'm afraid Duff definitely does not have an ass, bless him. He has everything else going for him though. But why do you have to keep quiet about Duff? lol
  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    I wonder if Slash noticed his legs...
  15. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Ahh...so there was some sort of bizarre purpose to it! OK. I still wouldn't be on that floor though.
