  1. I'm a Gen X, and I was born in 1970. If you were born between 1982 and 2000, you are a millenial. And I probably don't like you. And fuck Snoop Dogg.

    I got the new Christmas sweater also, I love it. It was my favorite Christmas gift this year. Hoping to wear it more for Christmas 2020
  3. Pretty sure it's being aired at 11PM EST on 2/1 (Saturday night) on FOX

    25% off sale on most items at gnrmerch.com through 1/13
  5. Paid $999 for the Locked N' Loaded set. So, yes.
  6. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    It's my opinion that if the band doesn't get new music out this year, Slash will bolt. He's the kind of guy that wants to stay productive. Sure, he loves being out on the road and performing, but he also likes being in the studio, recording new material. I don't think the money he's stockpiling from the NITL tour would be enough to make Slash happy enough if the GN'R plan was to just play shows with the same songs night after night. The linactivity in the studio is basically what caused him to leave in 1996.
  7. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

    I received mine on day one (6/29/18). My number was 3642. That pissed me off then, and the fact that you received a lower number 18 months later pisses me off. If they had taken the time and courtesy to release them in numerical sequence, mine almost certainly would have been one of the first 500.
  8. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    The live version from 1987 in London that was officially released in 2018 is by far the best version I've heard

    I agree, though in the 2019 version, the band was treated as a trio than as a full band. I'd like to see the other band members get a little more exposure and respect.

    I got a bunch of things for Christmas from family that were purchased on the official website. Got the holiday sweater, which I love. Also got three of the puzzles--the AFD banned cover, and the two Illusion puzzles. Got the Maxfield "Guns N' Roses Was Here" hat, and the 1:32 tractor trailer truck. Only thing I wanted but didn't get was the red AFD cassette, because I already had the vinyls from the Locked N' Loaded set, and didn't need them again. I wish they had offered the cassette seperately.
  11. The "New Album" Thread

    Dizzy Reed, in the band since 1990. Ferrer, in the band since 2006, I think? Fortus, in the band since 2002? Those three have technically been in Guns N' Roses longer than Slash and Duff. The band is excellent as-is. People wanted as much of the classic era members as possible, and we managed to get Duff, and in some kind of miracle, Slash. I can happily accept this lineup as Guns N' Roses.

    I like the 'Guns N' Roses Was Here' cap. Appears to be sold out, which I guess is proof that it wasn't too gaudy looking.
  13. The "New Album" Thread

    From my perspective, the band is making up for years of missed opportunity. I certainly have been the optimist about a new record, and while I was disappointed that 2019 didn't bring anything new, these tour dates (without "Not In This Lifetime" attached) would strongly suggest, in my opinion, that they will be touring in support of new material. January 31st is interesting, because with it being the first show since NITL ended, I would fully expect something new to be introduced, especially to an audience in town for the Super Bowl. It would definitely cause media buzz.

    I happen to like this puzzle, and will buy it if I don't receive it as a gift for Christmas
  15. What Made Guns N' Roses Special?

    A band whose debut album was impossible to ignore. A real rock n' roll record in an era otherwise dominated by hair metal. Swagger of the Rolling Stones, vintage guitar crunch of Aerosmith and AC/DC, attitude of The Sex Pistols. They took these elements and managed to be unique. As said by others, a band greater than the sum of its parts.
