  1. I don't think there's anyone from a band with 80's roots that isn't a friend of Slash
  2. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

    Call me dumb too, as I paid full price also. What disappoints me more than having paid full price was receiving a box that has a Certificate of Authenticity numbered 3,642 out of 10,000. The people behind the distribution of these box sets should have been smart and courteous enough to issue them in order starting at 0001. I bought my set within 6 hours the first day they were available for pre-order, that should have gotten me a low COA number, not a random one.
  3. I guess I'm the only optimistic one. I've been saying all year that I think new music from Guns N' Roses is coming sooner rather than later. I think it's very possible that there could be a new song released prior to the November 1st premiere of 'Terminator: Dark Fate'. It was on this very website that I learned Slash was recording parts at Axl's home studio at the end of April. My belief is that the short tour this fall under the "Not In This Lifetime" moniker is more of an unveiling of new music, where I think they could introduce as many as four new songs. I'm just putting the pieces together. I have said it again, and again, and again. The band is keeping finished material under wraps so no one has the opportunity to leak it online in advance. It would not surprise me one bit if we woke up one day late this year or early next year to discover there's a new Guns N' Roses record in stores.

    Sure seems that way. I'm glad I got another copy of the Super Deluxe for $40 on the last day of the sale (July 15), but I just received an email today saying due to the demand for them at that price, they won't be shipping it for another 3-4 weeks. Which means they sold out their original stock, and haven't been restocked yet. To sell the book with the CD's/Blu-Ray for more than what the Super Deluxe was priced at earlier this month seems kind of ludicrous
  5. It was the video for WTTJ that prompted me to by the Appetite album. I can vividly recall buying the album on October 10, 1987, because I was at the mall looking for the album, and also looking for a gift for my mom, whose birthday is October 12th. So it was probably a week or two earlier that the WTTJ video debuted (sometime late September).

    On Sunday, the official site stated the Super Deluxe was SOLD OUT. Then on Monday, it was available again at the $40 price, so I bought one more (I'd bought two on the 4th of July). Then on Tuesday, it was back to $99.98. I wonder if someone at the site made a mistake by putting the Super Deluxe back at $40 on Monday, between Sunday being sold out and Tuesday back to $99.98. They haven't shipped my third one out yet. The two I bought on July 4th were shipped the next day.
  7. 26 years ago today- the end

    My guess is that Axl was tired of Slash being strung out on heroin and other drugs, and bringing in other guitar players that could potentially play lead was Axl's way of saying to Slash "You are replaceable if you can't get your shit together"
  8. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    The "alternate" version is the video MTV in America aired non-stop in the summer of 1988. I don't know how that can be considered the alternate version.
  9. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    I'd want the versions of "Civil War" and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" with Adler on drums
  10. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts: Now $399

    I got one on Day One last year for about $100, and that's because I had a merchandise credit for about $60 for the store I picked it up at. Bought two yesterday at the $40 price. Christmas gifts for my two oldest sons. Might buy another for my youngest son. For once, Guns N' Roses are offering up something from their store at an unbeatable price.

    The Super Deluxe set is going for $40. Yes, forty bucks. On the official merchandise website. That is a bargain. I'm in on another one, maybe two.
  12. Is GNR the most underrated band ever?

    They went from being unknowns outside of Los Angeles in early 1987, to the biggest band in America by the summer of 1988. By the time the 'Illusion' records came to light, they were the biggest band in the world. It was the push by MTV and radio for grunge/alternative, as well as GN'R's own internal destruction, that caused them to lose that title. The only time I would have considered Guns N' Roses underrated was after the release of AFD, and the nearly yearlong climb to superstardom. The album was just way too good to be ignored.

    I got mine on Day One (6/29/18), and I don't think I've looked at it for at least six months. I keep it in the box, because I'm afraid if I display it, the faux leather will crack and peel from the humidity in my apartment. $999 is too much of an investment to risk having the elements cause damage to it. If it gets down to $199-299, I will almost certainly pick up another one or two, probably as Christmas gifts for my two oldest boys
  14. Doubt it was written with band involvement (the cover is a photo from the UYI era), but it's 300 pages, and the timing is interesting with the band heading back out on the road around the same time https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dead-straight-guide-to-guns-n-roses-mick-oshea/1130419985?ean=9781912733095

    The tractor trailer is way fuckin' cool. They should sell THIS on their website
