GNR Manager Fernando Confirms New Album Within 6 Months!!

Recommended Posts

There have been millions of boards. I remember the official one, gnronline. It had some uber crazies on there. ''MAKE HASTE MAKE HASTE'' haha. Rose closed the bugger down and everyone splintered into various boards, some of which were arselicker boards, some of which more critical.

on a related note, at what point did we know for sure, 100% confirmed, that the chinese democracy was to be released on the day it lay in stores? 

Was it also 6 months in advance? less? more?

The biggest indicator for something actually going on is  the fact that Axl sounded pretty good during the first three shows of the current leg.

He never sounded that good after a break, so chances are he's been doing some studio work.

I thought exactly this. Axl sounds much, much better on songs he's been sucking on for years. Recent videos of SCOM and NR are the best he's sounded on these tracks since 2010.

Billboard announced the official release date on October 9th. The album came out on November 23rd.

I use to be a moderator on a very popular GNR board back in the early 2000.  I can tell you band members use to hang out there.  It gets lonely out there on the road.  And back then Axl would comment during shows on what he read.  That whole Pepsi vs Diet Coke was a poll on that board.  You see Axl vote for diet coke in the cartoon.  "Hey You" was a topic and later we saw Tommy, maybe inspired by that topic to write a song with that title.  They didn't lose us in this whole board mess but we lost them.

We're all aware that GNR members used to frequent many boards. Axl Rose himself visited here more than a few times. 

None of that has anything to do with that fact that mygnr isn't the big bad place you attempt to make it out to be.

That fucking cunt on his shit click bait site has turned this news into a headline that makes it sound like Axl has six months to live. I hope he clicks on an email from a Nigerian Prince and sends all his I'll gotten gains to some scammer.

I'm not that familiar with many other older forums /message boards. Many things that I know about them is what I've read here. @cineaterwhat you told about your forum; band members hanging out there, sounds pretty nice, so apparently people there had overall very positive attitude towards the band.

If I think about this place you got the positive, you get the negative and you get the objective. And that's a good thing. But not necessarily that inviting for a band member if you can't handle the negative stuff too. 

If I was an artist (solo or in a band) and successful enough to have fan forums, I  guess I would feel that a fan forum is place for fans, going in there (separately orchestrated Q & A:s excluded) would be like eavesdropping a conversation (positive or negative) that's not meant for me to hear. But each to his own.

100% if you are fit to hear all sides, this forum is amazing. If you want to have your ass kissed 24/7 you need to go elsewhere.

There is one arse licky forum which used to be very popular where nobody talks about the leaks so it is like they live in some strange bubble where Hard School and Atlas do not exist and the only things of interest are baseball bats and that same static setlist. It goes without saying it is now practically dead. Censorship and sycophancy taking to its extremity.

i never understood why people went on this finnish board and i can't believe its still alive. 

mygnr was always the biggest forum and should have been supported by GnR.

He didn't just skip it, also it wasn't in email. He directly engaged in a text conversation, acknowledged the reddit account question three separate times, didn't answer it three different times, then continued the conversation. 

whos the dude he had this conversation with?
that person should be telling us as to what Fernando ment by it. 

its not up for a plenum debate. This way, its just more oil spilled on a fire. And no real answers.

if you have a conversation with someone... you dont go making a poll what that person wanted to say.

if whoever talked to fernando doesnt know what Fernando wanted/didnt want to say... hows forwarding it to the forums gonna help in any way except add to uncertainty?

with knowledge comes responsibility.

@downzyhad the conversation and he's already commented in the thread about what was said. Again, it was more about Fernando choosing not to answer.

Neither downzy or I are trying to withhold any information from the users. If we were, we would have just left the thread locked and not mentioned it. Instead, we were trying to be nice and let the users know we made an attempt to get an answer.

If I was an artist and had my own fan forums, I couldn't help myself and would still read there. Not sure if I would post anything though.

Interacting in such a way could be emotionally draining / too intensive.

But I would still read... maybe even do something if fans would be complaining about stuff. Even if it's just changing the set list a bit, by playing other songs from the catalog.

On the other hand I might get tired of the criticism, stop reading at some point and drive around in my Ferrari for a bit or relax at my swimming pool :lol:

well, mygnr was exactly that under madison and co. madison left this place like leah remini and other former Scientology members.

in retrospective, its a bit weird that Axl did a political statement with CD and freedom of speech didnt excist here nor in his band til even today. they still have a gag order.

You'd have to say it is Team Brazil's ''ideal'' forum really. Somewhere where there is not so much the presence of leaks but an environment where leaks are not even discussed! A place where unilateral support for Rose is only countenanced, and Fernando's merchandising gets a welcoming reception. The only caveat is, everyone has buggered off (or been banned) haha.

Obviously somewhere where only 100% positive spin is permitted can not facilitate discussions.

Read between the line and you know exactly what Fernanado meant: "Yes, it was me, but I'm not gonna confirm it.". If it is wasn't him, there is no reason for him not to say that it wasn't him. You're the only one who is desperately not wanting it to be Fernando.

which of my posts reeks of desperation? I have no attachment to either . I'm advocating caution and not jumping to conclusions.
there are no "good" or "bad" sources when it comes to GNR. There is "Axl" and "everybody else".. and even Axl doesnt have a good track record when it comes to announcing release dates. so why invest effort into a could be real/fake reddit account of Fernando? I know its appealing to think there's an album in store for us... but I learned not to get attached to news that requires so many leaps of faith.
