Oh my gosh, that looks just like my dog Ozzy. Wonder what the breed is. Anyone know? Mine is a Bearded Collie.

His Dog's name was Torque....I have seen articles saying he was a Maltese, but I always thought they were white... not certain

We need this as a youtube video and spread it via twitter and Instagram. (Probably too long for instagram). This has to go viral :awesomeface:

@Andy14 Amazing and hilarious! Highlights what a range of facial expressions Axl has (not always grumpy like in fan photos...).

Lol, @Andy14....that is some funny shit!! All of Axl's faces match sooooo perfectly with what everyone is saying. LOVE IT!!!!!!! :lol:

Just look at Slash's smile. Happy and loved-up. Looooove.

I gotta ask though, what is the American thing with wearing backwards baseball caps??? It doesn't even look that good on Meegan. Why do people do it??

Love that pic!! :heart: 

I've kinda been down all day and that made a big difference...

Well retweet my tweet to Axl and Del...please ;)

This is lovely @Blue-Jean Baby Isn't that the thing for fans of Axl and Guns in general - a picture, a clip, a gif... any kind of engagement with our band is a mood enhancer. I certainly find this. When I went through a really hard time recently, GNR fangirling kept me sane.

We need a "The Very Best of.." secret sub-thread in here!

Who wants to scroll through all 600+ pages and pick the favourites. lol.

But don't tell Russ. :ph34r:

Oooh yes!! And we could have sub-sub-threads. 'Axl belly', 'Slash smile' 'Slash without shades' etc. Of course, 'Serpentine' should be top of the list. :drool:

I hate myself a little bit for doing this, but I read Steven Adler's Mom's book.  :facepalm: I had a long flight for work last week and I hate flying so I read it to pass the time on the plane.  Honestly, the book  is so poorly written/edited that even if you do want to give her the benefit of the doubt that she wrote it to help others, it doesn't come across that way at all.  Her relationship with her son comes across as really, really fucked up and it leaves you feeling like you need a shower when you are done reading it.

When the whole Celebrity Rehab/Sober House stuff was going on I was busy having kids so I never saw the shows or read his book, so you all probably have heard this stuff before but here are the few interesting (and I use that term loosely) tidbits:

 

Spoiler

She talks about Axl and Steven sending a limo to her house with a bag of dirty laundry and how later they came over for dinner and as she was ironing Axl's jeans:   "Steven told me to take a good look at what I was pressing  I hadn't noticed that Axl's pants were full of profanity.  All over the pants were two words "Fuck You" How sick!  Unfortunately these words from Axl would prove to be prophetic "  Her hate for Axl is pretty clear throughout book and among her claims is that he got her fired from her  "Ask Deanna" column in Kerrang magazine.  Later (after the RRHOF) she says that Steven and Axl met and that Axl told Steven that it was pretty much Slash who "campaigned" to get Steven out of the band and that Axl was telling Steven now because he "was sick of covering for Slash" and that Axl was "fed up with being branded the manipulative asshole who intimidated everyone in the band and single handedly booted Adler out".

She writes about Axl's Mom:   (this took place at the LA Coliseum when they were opening for the Rolling Stones)  " During the concert I met Axl's Mom Sharon Bailey.  Sharon was a very down to earth, well dresssed, sweet woman. Sharon and I chatted about the band's success.  Then we expressed our feelings about Geffen and the boys .  It turned out we shared many of the same secrets and concerns.  But with Sharon, I sensed an almost healthy resignation; an acceptance that our sons' excessive lifestyles were a mandatory part of the equation. Sharon told me that she traveled all the way from Indiana to see her son, but had spent only a few minutes with Axl.  She felt this was unavoidable due to the demands presently being put upon the group to write new music, hold interviews and continue touring.  Mothers want their sons to be happy and I sensed that this beautiful woman had made her share of sacrifices for her son.  We traded looks and there was a moment between us worth a hundred heartaches"    :vomit:

As for the GNR lawyers and management, she pretty much hates them too. According to her, they  talked Steven out of sending flowers to the family of the two boys who died at Donnington and that management encouraged all of the guys to make wills. She was livid when she saw that in Steven's will "the band's manager was the executor of the will.  In the section for dispersal of personal property the manager's name appeared again.  He was listed to receive Steven's house in Studio City and his Mercedes."  She then goes on to say that he left Axl some videotapes, but nothing to his stepdad/brother.

The book was written just before Coachella with an epilogue about the reunion. At the start of the book she says that they were hopeful about Steven being asked to do Coachella.  As for Axl's broken foot at Coachella she had this lovely sentiment:  "It also made the concert at Coachella kind of curios and comical, because Axl had to stay in a sitting position throughout the entire concert, which probably made Slash and Duff shake their heads and the Coachella kids wonder why the lead singer of GNR looked like a pudgy pink hobbit who never stirred from his toadstool".:facepalm:

Lastly this is what she says about the reunion:  "It became obvious that Steven would not be asked to rejoin the band for the kick off of their North American tour.  His lower back had not healed completely and it  must have been extremely difficult for him to watch GNR perform in city after city to rave reviews without him". As for shows that Steven did do, she is kind of tight lipped  about it -- Just that he got an important phone call and couldn't talk about it and the next thing she knew, he was in Nashville

Thanks for reviewing this.

The part about Axl's mother made me furious. The poor mothers who have to suffer because they cannot get their son's attention? After all we know about their, especially Axl's childhood. Just sick. 

I am so not gonna read this. She probably just quickly put some book together so she can take a share of the reunion hype. :facepalm:

Adlers Mom has to know about Axl's history, so to put his Mom in a sympathetic kind of light was quite sickening. The whole tone of the book is very "woe is me", so I think that the part about Axl's Mom was to further prove the point that Deanne feels she has suffered the most in all of this.

Oh boy, thanks for taking one for the team. No way I'm reading this. What is her beef with Axl, man she goes after him every opportunity she has. I really love the "Worth a hundred heartaches". YUK!

@Fansince88, thanks for reading Mrs Adler's book for all of us and sharing these bits. I didn't intend to buy it, but I'm sure you saved money and time for people who were thinking of reading it.

*Interesting info about their wills and who was supposed to be the executor. Always the manager, that fucking leech.

Yes, this is the most interesting part - if it's true of course, because no one else has ever mentioned it as far as I know.

@Fansince88I really interested with this 

Spoiler

 Later (after the RRHOF) Steven and Axl met and that Axl told Steven that it was pretty much Slash who "campaigned" to get Steven out of the band and that Axl was telling Steven now because he "was sick of covering for Slash" and that Axl was "fed up with being branded the manipulative asshole who intimidated everyone in the band and single handedly booted Adler out".

 

This too, although it's not surprising.

The rest isn't even worth commenting.
