Interesting, what gives you that inclination?  

rock rio 2011 along with the rock n roll hall of fame diss cringe open letter along with a few other things but mostly the downhill nature of his voice, the acdc thing, he mentioned that he could not drink during that leg due to the demands of the songs, which was very revealing because his voice became tremendous

Use Your Illusion could have been one belter of an album, to the point where it would be regarded as one of the best albums ever, if the weaker songs were removed and just the killers left on one disc.

Axl was still at home in LA and hadn't decided to go to the airport yet when the Vancouver promoters called the concert off in 2002 and riot ensued 

And people wonder why fans have the nerve to draw a line in the sand with respect to Axl's total lack or respect for them...

I fuc...in love Riad antes the Bedouins, my favorite CD song 

I saw them do Riad in Detroit in 2002. Didn't like it much that night but went on to be a favorite of mine when the album finally came out 6 years later.

More or less a GN'R opinion, but...

...I never liked "Fall to Pieces" and don't get why people consider it to be a great song.

Crap melody, lame lyrics, dull singer.

Gnr related opinion: I don't like Myles Kennedy's voice on gnr songs. He sounds awesome in many other songs, and some parts of gnr songs, but when he hit the high notes, I cringe (ycbm, last part of scom/pc etc). He also lacks the rage, obviously.

Otherwise, he/Alter bridge is really underrated. I love Blackbird, their new album is amazing too.

axl has been pretty fucked up (booze + drugs) since around 2011 with the exception of his time with acdc 

I heard that he had bronchitis/throat surgery around 2011? One disastrous performance and off form for some years doesn't mean he is drowning in booze+drugs. Bcz he had many chances to do that but he didnt.

You can turn that around. When Slash wasn't in the band, everyone was saying GNR couldn't exist without him and Axl was an asshole for taking the name, yada yada. Now Slash is back and now they can hate on Axl (and Slash and Duff) because Izzy isn't there. People are never satisfied. I see no Izzy hate. I mainly see an utter despite of Axl, and they will always find a stone to throw. Out of everyone, Axl certainly gets thrown the most shit at him. Sometimes justified, sometimes because people make up scenarios in their heads just to spin a story to fit into what they believe.

Even if I'm an Axl fan, I love all of them, always have. I don't feel like I have to pick sides. I accept that the lineup and everything regarding GNR is out of my control; so no use getting worked up about any of it. It's kind of a take it or leave it situation. I enjoy the shows (GNR's, Slash's, Duff's) and the music.

beautiful said. thank you

It is a good job I specifically cited  ''Axly fans'' then!

I don’t like “Double Talkin’ Jive” - never did, never will.

I love the instrumental outro just before the spanish guitars start. The lyrics are a bit naff.

CD sold between 6-8 million worldwide. 

Wait.... That's your opinion? Isn't that what it sold or am I wrong?

I don't have official figures to hand. I'm assuming since it sold 2.6 million three months after its release date, that figure I put could be realistic. Which I think is a great number at a certainly interesting time in the GNR timeline. How much do you think it sold? New GNR's tour commitments & NITL tour helped it immensely.

Robin Finck is a fucking good guitar player and songwriter. Yes, he wrote a lot of stuff besides Better (which is already a lot). 

Love to hear any of his other GNR work that we haven't heard. Finck, Bucket, Fortus & Stinson surely had great chemistry.

I don't have exact numbers either, but your number seemed accurate to me. I can't remember where I read it, but I did read that it got a big bump on streaming since NITL started too. 

Yes, Best Buy got screwed on the deal and yes, they sent a ton of copies off to dollar stores a few years later, but that doesn't change the initial reception. 

The fact remains that it's a great album that not only received great reviews prior to release, but performed better sales wise than some fans like to admit. It debuted at #3 on the Billboard charts, only behind Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Then (according to Wikipedia) it was certified platinum by the RIAA within 3 months of release.

In short, I agree with your guess / opinion, but I went off on a tangent explaining why lol
