  1. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    remember last year when several thousand fans signed a petition asking Izzy to do a performance (I was one who signed). the petition just asked for a solo performance, not a reunion. we also stated we would support it financially by either going to the show or paying to watch it streamed online. Izzy didnt even acknowledge the petition! wow he is so cool! and he didnt show up to any NITL rehearsals! cool! well I guess I'll go listen to FP Money right now. I think the FP stands for "this song is Fucking Pointless"
  2. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    so...... I realize that everyone who has contributed to this thread probably hasnt read every single page, but I have to say that I'm pretty surprised that not one fan who thinks "Izzy is the greatest thing since Axl hid above a doorway in the Estranged video" has responded with a brief list of the awesome songs Izzy has contributed to the world with his solo work. I'm seriously asking. I quit on his solo work after 117 degrees. everything I heard after that album sounds boring (this coming from a guy who loves weather forecasts - which Izzy seems to give one every album) but I'm willing to give it another shot. can someone give me a 10 song playlist from Izzys solo career that I can listen to in the gym tomorrow?
  3. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    hey you say Izzy has great songs on all 11 albums. I cant seem to find them. can you give me a list so I can try to give them another listen? I'm not trolling, I seriously want to know what the good songs are so i can give them another try. I just remember being very underwhelmed at each of Izzys albums when I played them thru spotify or YouTube, etc. maybe I didnt give them a fair shot.
  4. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    regarding Izzys worth, if we are talking about song writing credits, then he absolutely deserves equal loot. but how valuable are the songs? dont get me wrong without the songs there would be no band, however Axl had the band name and a very similar set list to the NITL shows in 2012 and was playing to half empty theaters in Vegas. Slash comes back and they instantly go to playing football stadiums, with the same exact songs. nothing new, unless you count Coma and 3 more cover songs. if it was Izzy who came back and not Slash, they would still be playing theaters. he has no social media following, barely sells any records whenever it is that he decides to release them, doesnt do press and is honestly the least fan friendly member of the band. and that's saying something for this band. So if we determine value by putting asses in the seats, then no, Izzy does not deserve equal share as Slash or Duff. Only people that will care that Iz is back will be the hardcore fans, most of whom are on this message board (me included).
  5. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    I remember the stones did a tour (I think it was in the early 2000s) where they played a theater, and arena and a stadium all in the same city in the same week. I'd love to see and AFD5 reunion done similar to this, although I doubt they could do all 3 shows- maybe a theater and arena (or baseball stadium in some markets) regarding Steven's line up changes, I would be that would come down to themoney. there's no way he pays those guys more than a grand each per show. cant live off that. probably why Izzy has never joined him for a song or two on any recent solo tours
  6. Adler's Appetite - You Could Be Mine [Great vocals]

    sounds really great. is the singers name Prince Albert by any chance? lol
  7. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    I'd like a version of civil war with Izzy on it. 14 years demo with different lyrics atleast one of Axls sessions with Yoda on tape. lol
  8. Steven Adler *accidentally* stabs himself

    wishing Steven nothing but the best. if there is a bright side here, it's that Steven will probably eventually tell us what happened, unlike GNR . Hoping he just did what I did once- trying to open a box from amazon and I pulled the box cutter too hard toward myself and cut my leg. wasnt too bad, but I definetly felt stupid over it. Hopefully his story is something similar and nothing serious like some of the headlines report. BTW cant wait to see what kind of bullshit headline alternative nation comes up with for this. Scumbags. Get better soon Steven!
  9. one quick note- civil war isnt the last song featuring the AFD 5. Izzy doesnt play on it. for those who own the physical album check the booklet. Slash plays all 3 guitar parts. Izzy isnt listed at all. Dont bother with wiki as it is wrong. I had no idea he didnt play on that song! I would have figured he didnt play on Coma since he couldn't figure out how to play it live.
  10. I'd be interested in a box set for UYI. I think the reason the AFD set didnt sell is because just about all of that music had been heard before and the price tag was waaaaaaaay too high for what amounted to 2 new demos and some rub on tattoos. if they did it right then I'd buy- unheard songs/ shows at a reasonable price. but btw- dont they know none buys music anymore? maybe there could be an alternative to this that would work for everyone interested. I think it was RussTB who was on appetite for distortion a year or so go had a suggested of releasing this kind of stuff as part of the nighttrain membership. I am probably misquoting him here, but I think he said something along the lines of paying a few bucks per month for a nighttrain membership and as part of that the band would release new videos of unseen shows and maybe some unheard songs. I think this is the best idea for GNR as they have a vault of proshot shows from the UYI tour that would probably generate a good income if released in this format vs a box set. plus it make it affordable for ALL fans and would keep us engaged until the new album drops in 2052.
  11. GnR Pinball Machine

    here's the 6 person GNR cross.
  12. wiki has soma city ward as giving Izzy a credit. But they also list me as the princess of Canada, so you cant always believe what's on there, lol. I'm looking at the CD insert now and Izzy has no credits on any songs on the album nor is he thanks in the credits (neither is Axl). I'd upload a pic for those interested if I could figure out how to do that on my phone. I didnt realize that Gilby got the sole credit on "Monkey Chow" until just now. thought that was cool
  13. I would be so excited if Izzy wrote a few songs with them. But has anyone considered that maybe he doesnt want to be a rockstar anymore? Let's be honest, he doesnt tour, doesnt do anything with or for the fans. just records some songs when he feels like it on his terms. and honestly most of his solo stuff isnt that great- it all sounds the same. I mean, how many songs can one guy write about the weather. lol? The guy just seems like he doesnt want to do the rock thing any more, and thats ok. Its his life and he has that right. Dont get me wrong, I'm thankful for Izzys contribution to GNR (especially the fact that he founded it) but I feel he has moved on. And so should we. If Izzy has a song on the new record then that's the first one I'll play when I buy the darn thing. But I'm not counting on it. I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm actually pretty excited to see what Richard has to bring to the songwriting process.
  14. Underrated Slash solos

    one of my favorites is Slashs guest performance on "Street Child" by Elan. Check it out if you haven't heard it
  15. **FAKE** GNR 2019 Leak? Found on Youtube

    that guy does an outstanding impression of Axl. and I'm proud to say I heard of him before he becomes Steven Adlers next singer!
