Wait, people still "read" Penthouse?  

I hear these days there’s a lot of good “reads” on the internet so penthouse isn’t as popular

Axl didn't give a fuck what the media spewed out 30 years ago and I'm sure that is very much still the case.

What a load of bollocks.

Is this the same guy who was on the AFD podcast and went into some weird and irrelevant politics rant at the end?

And what does the whole takedown saga have to do with being anti-Trump?

Ramblings of a crazy person. I'm suprised this even got published tbh

Woke? WTF is that? I'm older than most of you and IDK what that is. Had to look it up. Sounds like a leftist term. Which means nothing to me.

For anyone who doesn't know, generally speaking "woke" is used to describe someone who isn't an asshole and treats others with respect.

Although, bizarrely, people on the right use it as a kind of insult, taking someone's capacity to do good and using it to disaparage them in a way only they know how ("kindess? ha, laaame!").

Woke means someone whoose aware, aware of world affairs, social issues, fighting the good fight, its a term thats existed forever in black American circles, a lot of the old black power militants used to refer to themselves and their ilk as such, its kinda more broadly used now.

I was going to comment on this article but didn't have time and now, when reading all the other posts, I have to say I am happy by most reactions and replies. Turns out mygnrforum is woke, too.

Tavana actually isn't a Trump supporter. Still, supporting either major political party seems about like the least Rock N' Roll thing a band or singer can do. Of course, I say this as a libertarian, who has to cross my fingers to even steal 3% of the vote lol.

Axl opinions aside, can we please dump the word "woke" in 2019? :P

Perceptions are always different. I've always viewed him as a over sensitive prick.

Good post @ArtTavana

Next time I'm in LA you can buy me a shot

 

Anyone that says that "the zenith of his (Axl) popularity resulted from Rose being both disgraceful and inappropriate" is utterly ignorant and completely unaware of all things that made Guns n' Roses and Axl Rose popular.

Art Tavana is a gifted writer, his idealism is his Achilles heel. My takeaway from this article is that Tavana struggles to accept that....

1) his favorite rockstar holds political views that he can't agree with and can't reconcile with

2) people change over time, that they grow, become wiser and their personalities and outlooks CHANGE

3) Axl Rose was 18-25 when most of these "statements" were made

All in it's unfortunate that the only real journalist who actually cares and investigates GNR also has the inability to see past his own views of the world.
