  1. Theory and Analyzes: Axl's Music Based in Books.

    Thanks for your opinion and analysis, so you quoted Seven the movie and this remembers me the unreleased track Seven, but I heard the name was choosen 'cause the music was written by seven musicians. Madagascar is a show of references. Studying Axl's lyrics I've realized that he likes to create music mixing references from art like books and movies with references from the real world like governmental and social questions.
  2. In a chat with fans Axl Rose revealed your favorite books: Zodiac(Neal Stephenson), Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, James Dean: The Mutant King(David Dalton), The Stand(Stephen King), A Scanner Darkly(Philip K. Dick) Everybody knows that the Chinese Democracy track "Catcher in the Rye" is based in the book The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger, the music show some references from the book like the feeling of being revolted, confused and alienated(that is what the main character felt), references to murdering of John Lennon and personal ideas from Axl like what him felt about the murdering of Lennon. Recently Tom Zutaut, former executive from Geffen Records, said in interview that Atlas Shrugged is based in a jew-russian writer and philosopher called Ayn Rand, she was authoress of a philosophical fiction book called Atlas Shrugged, that explore the idea of a United States where the private businesses is super regulated by a progressive and corrupt government. The title Atlas Shrugged makes reference to Atlas a titan from the greek mythology that was condemned by Zeus to hold the skies on his shoulders for the eternity, The significance of this reference appears in a conversation between the characters Francisco d'Anconia and Hank Rearden, in which d'Anconia asks Rearden what advice he would give Atlas upon seeing "the greater [the titan's] effort, the heavier the world bore down on his shoulders". With Rearden unable to answer, d'Anconia gives his own response: "To shrug". In 2008 Axl confirmed the existence of a music called Zodiac the track name match the title of the book Zodiac by Neal Stephenson, book that Axl include in your favorite books list, the book tells the story of an environmentalist, Sangamon Taylor, uncovering a conspiracy involving industrialist polluters in Boston Harbor. The "Zodiac" of the title refers to the brand of inflatable motor boats the hero uses to get around the city efficiently. His opponents attempt to frame him as an ecoterrorist. The protagonist is inspired by environmental chemist Marco Kaltofen. Taylor is a recreational user of nitrous oxide, justifying his choice of drug by the eponymous Sangamon's principle: "the simpler the molecule, the better the drug". Also in 2008 Axl confirmed the existence of a music called Elvis Presley and The Monster Soul(Soul Monster/Leave Me Alone). "Elvis Presley and the Monster of Soul aka The Soul Monster (working title Leave Me Alone)" which will no doubt end up "Soul Monster". - I think it's our most Black Sabbath moment. Sang it on a Christmas eve. In my opnion the meanest section of anything I've sung to date. Which having said that I'm sure when it's heard others may disagree but we felt it was a Christmas card of unadulterated venom so to speak. I felt a lot better afterward. (Axl Rose, Here Today… Gone To Hell Forum, Dec. 2008) The title seems be a reference to the book Mary Shelley's Frankestein taking into account the two words MONSTER and SOUL, in the book Frankenstein is a MONSTER created by Victor Frankenstein described as being a big and horrendous creature but with a sensitive and emotional personality(SOUL), the creature was rejected and criticized by the society (maybe this has something to do with the alternartive title Leave me Alone). Another interpretation I can do is about the book James Dean: The Mutant King by David Dalton another favorite of Axl, despite the name The Mutant King, the book is actually James Dean's biography, he was a actor well known for your Rock N' Roll(Rock always remember Elvis Presley) life style, in the 50s(1950 remember Elvis Presley too) he was a symbol of rebellion, the badboy that everybody wanted to be. So it's my theories and analyzes, what is your opinion and analyzes?
  3. So far, how many Guns N' Roses private shows do we know?

    Thanks for the info, I was searched better and found more information about GNR private shows, so I will update my post to add a list.
  4. Guns N' Roses did some private shows, like the one that a snippet of The General was recorded so, how many private do we have knowledge?
  5. Who came up with the idea for the name of the band? I guess AXL was Axl? Axl called the name of the band AXL and then slowly but surely he wanted to take on that name for himself. So he took that name, but I never called him Axl. He was always Bill when I was in the band. Then he reinvented himself. AXL was the original name. After maybe 2 or 3 shows, the name was changed to Rose. Axl Rose (then Bill) had some sort of fall out with Izzy and I and to continue playing as a band , Izzy said we were to change our name to Rose, and we did. The word Hollywood was added when I stumbled upon the name Rose being used by another band. I think they were on the East coast, maybe New York. This was towards the end. It was always the same band, except for the bass player change mid-way. The name of the band (Guns N´ Roses) came because at one point we broke up after a show and Axl joined Tracii´s band LA Guns. So Axl sang with LA Guns for a little while and I think he did some recordings. Then when he came back, when they merged, and this was after I left because I was in Hollywood Rose, they just put the two names together and that´s when Tracii took the spot that I left open. Then Slash joined and then I played another show actually. I played a final show about six months after I left the band. By that time it was…you have to get an exact timeline to figure out what was what. - Chris Weber Full Interview: https://rocksverige.se/intervju-chris-weber-om-hollywood-rose/

  9. A Brazilian TV show that interviewed Slash in 1995:
