  1. The "New Album" Thread

    Slash's comments are indicative how much concern the band and management have for the new material being stolen/leaked/pirated. They are not in the business to give away new music, nor should any artist be. I continue to be alternately baffled and angered by those who grew up downloading music from places like Limewire. So many people on this site who heard the leaked songs from a few months back, and then question or mock the lack of new material being officially released. And you wonder when the band does play a show near you, why it costs an arm, a leg, and a firstborn child to get a ticket. God damn, this pisses me off.
  2. 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
  4. 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
  6. Paid $999 for the Locked N' Loaded set. So, yes.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  12. 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.
  14. 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
  16. 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.
  17. I agree 100%. Axl could have brought Duff, Izzy, and Steven back into the fold for Not In This Lifetime, and it wouldn't have succeeded as much as it did having Slash back. Axl/Slash is what Jagger/Richards, Page/Plant, Tyler/Perry, and Roth/Van Halen were to their respective bands. It makes all the difference.
  18. GNR Announce Miami 2020 Super Bowl Fest Show

    Actually, Disney bought FOX, which is why The Simpsons can be streamed on the new Disney Plus service. The only part Disney didn't acquire in the deal was FOX News. So technically, Mickey could make an appearance if he wanted to
  19. We've still got a month left in 2019, the possibility of new music this year still exists. I strongly believed the band would release something new this year, and while there's been no whispers of that actually occurring, it's not impossible. In 2020? Yes, I think any touring will be accompanied with new material, whether it be one song, a few, or a whole record's worth.

    I didn't notice that. They should sell it seperately for like $10. I already have the L N' L boxset, so I'm not in the market for the vinyl bundles. I got the Appetite cassette in blue at Target last holiday season.

    The merch website's been updated with a bunch of new things: Christmas sweater! Ornaments! Puzzles of the two Appetite album covers, plus Use Your Illusion I and II (I like these)! Also new are seperate shot glass/vinyl bundles. One features all four LP vinyls from the Locked N' Loaded set. The other has all the 7" singles from Locked N' Loaded. Surprisingly, they are affordably priced. Check it out.
  22. How long do you think NITL tour will be

    I think it finally concludes tonight. If the rumors are to be believed, there's a new album coming by the end of March, so there's no reason to call the next tour "Not In This Lifetime", right? Sure, in the eyes of most fans, it dragged on for too long with generally repeated set lists. Still, it was just about four years ago when we learned that Axl and Slash had mended fences, which led to the speculation that there could be a reunion. Something that seemed impossible for so many years. So, when you look at it that way, every time they take the stage together, it is a gift.

    "Thanks to your lame-ass floor's lack of traction, I'M GOING HOME"

    I'm sorry she got that shirt, unless she likes it. That and the shirt that repeats "Lies" over and over are the two shirts I absolutely did not want.

    I got my laundry bag mystery bundle today, and was pleasantly surprised by it's contents. I got the white/green ringer tee that reads "Guns N' Roses Appetite For Destruction" on the front. Also received the white trucker hat with the logo embroidered on the front. They threw in two stickers, one of which is now my avatar. The other is a sticker of the banned Appetite cover. Was really impressed with the laundry bag itself. The canvas material is pretty rugged, and the bullet logo is larger than it looked on the merchandise website. I'd post pictures, but I can't figure out how to post URL's, wish I could just copy and paste. Worth the money I spent, in my opinion.
