Ah, I see, thanks. I must have seen it around elsewhere too. Doesnt look like a current pic of Duff there either come to think of it. I guess it makes sense that Sorum was featured so heavily because the others were so scattered and preoccupied at that time. Sorum was one of the few who could shower, shave and show up for stuff like this at the time.

Yeah i reckon the other photos are from either the illusions period or 93 spaghetti incident era. Especially that photo of dizzy was i think was in the spaghet t i incident inlay booklet album......

Two things I memorized from this thread, "We've taken back control of our fan club, this fan club will be the most twisted sucker of your block and you deserve nothing less", and the 2 dollar coupon.

Come to think of it, it still sounds better than today's "Nightrain". At least you would get an interview with Matt Sorum in your mail. :awesomeface:

Except the fact that this Axl rant was just ridiculous and his stubborn idiotic temper made a lot of these points really happen...even til now.

At that point of time, it would have been 3 singles released w non album b sides. Who knows what they were or if they were even written by then, but that was common practice for a major release in the late 90’s.   

Seems like this was the moment where original partnership trademarks/logos weren’t going to be used for the foreseeable future and they were going to operate under the new entity

the logo stuff and merch problem make sense, but Axl still wanted to release this 1996 album. Well, good ol' Axl. Sending a fax rant to MTV...

I think the fax was more to publicly let Slash know or call some type of legal bluff that he was now operating under the new GNR entity with the banner of a new album

The rest of it looks like he was publicly announcing to Slash that he planned to cut him off from any new revenue generated from the old partnership.

He backtracked on all fronts with amount of $ the license from the old partnership could still generate and with his participation/release of Live Era

From 1996 to 2018 just think how that Discography has grown! They wouldn't need many extra pages

Let me know if there is any interest in the 3rd one. I only have 4 issues, my guess is either I stopped my membership or that was the last issue. 

 

Absolutely, keep them coming please. I'm loving the little interviews and all the stuff.

I guess the live like a suicide vinyl reissue "fan club exclusive" advertised on this issue never came to be after all.

Here’s issue 4 and a letter that came with one of the issues.

You also received a membership card. I must have ordered some shirts through this because I was cleaning out some old stuff and found the stage dive one on the top left corner of the “GN’R Collection”

I didn’t see any other reference to the vinyl, I would have liked to have picked it up!

If I stumble across anything else I’ll be sure to post!

Enjoy!

I haven't see any of this. Saw the address in the album booklets when I was younger but never got around to joining.
