With the COVID virus, is it becoming more apparent that GnR only cares about money?

So, according to Rick and His little baby boy Axl, there are 600 takes / ideas / Instrumentals. A Juju hounds album. A hard disc with letters, video rehearsals. The storage also had awards and sessions from Sympathy for the Devil. And a full album with 48 songs.

Some people say Bird paid 100k for this locker. Others say that he earned 100k with the stuff so far.

Most of them are saying: don't pay a dime for it, because its disappointing shit.

48 full songs, is pretty much 4 albums worth.....

Bob geldofs 80s band, the boomtown rats have even released a new album .GNR ?, nah would prefer to sit at home and do jigsaw puzzles.

The Boomtown Rats' new album isn't half bad for the typical new/wave - punk band releasing an album in the 2000s to stay relevant.

We've added select fans who've spent a lot of money on us to a VIP list so they can spend even more money on us 

 

Solid work as always.

I once went to a wedding at Bob Geldof's house and asked him what the best Boomtown Rats album was. He had a little chuckle, and said 'to be honest, I doubt you'd enjoy any of them'! 

Very nice guy all round I found. Good sense of humour and zero pretence.

Who are those people? Have they all heard the stuff to say it's disappointing? 

So there is 48 full tracks + 600 takes/ideas/instrumentals? This makes sense, it's kinda like the Village Sessions. Would be cool to hear proto versions of songs like Chinese, IRS and all the unheard stuff.

Geldof has a sense of humour? That's where your story got too far fetched.

If I want to read a pack of lies I'll go on Nightrain thank you very much. 

Good story though. I've never been a fan of Bob.

I saw Saskatoon 93 today.... and that kind of shit i want to buy!. Cmon!!!! Its not hard to do.

Seriously. For a band as big as they were we hardly have anything from their heyday.  I would kill for an official release of shows from back then.  Fuck.. Even if it is just a remastered Ritz Blu Ray.

A way for them to both profit and pretend they care about the fans would be to release the old shows (and the newer ones) they filmed in a database - five bucks to download each show or something. Donate a portion of that to coronavirus relief funds. Everyone wins!

Will they? Fuck no, it makes too much sense :lol:

Hell, I'd pay $20 to watch "The Perfect Crime"

Although I guess you would want to hear an example/snippet before spending...although logistically that could be difficult I guess!

Rest assured, Axl does have an open letter to the fans and a special plague edition of Appetite in the works. They’ll be arriving any day now in the spring of 2028.

I'm not going to make a big dramatic post about being done with this band, but I'm kinda done with this band. I've been a hardcore fan since 1988 and yeah I think it's pretty obvious this band only cares about money at this point. 

I don't think of it as they've given up on the fans as we all have been told numerous times that they don't owe us anything. I just think they've given up on themselves. So as a result why should anyone else care about them. 

The YouTube nonsense was the first straw and first time I started to think wow this band does not give a shit about fans. Then came the Trumpian lies and gaslighting from management as to the extent of their responsibility in the matter and their powerlessness to rectify the situation. 

Since the Corona shutdown though for them to not put out even a bit of information about what they're working on let alone a single and still have the same smug appearance of "fuck you fans buy our merch." yeah well I think I'm done.

Is it to a select group of fans? I just figured it was to anyone who was on the Guns N' Roses email list.

From the email above on this page of the thread (I don't want to quote it because it's huge) it reads to me that it's only for people who bought a Paradise City package in the past.

Just to turn all the valid and well-deserved criticism in the right direction again - my main intent with this thread wasn't even about into on cancelations or whatever. It was mainly about showing that you care about your fans in difficult times. Like countless normal bands are doing in creative ways. But that was probably my main mistake. GnR isn't a normal band nor do they care.

Ps. 
Buy our new flannel shirt you bunch of dumb walking wallets. Uncle Axl needs a new Taco Bell delivery.

Let people know about the tour dates that are 5 weeks away and what is happening in regards to the large sums of money spent on tickets? 

Something will for sure come out. Think we can bet those are not happening. They'll either be rescheduled or cancelled. If they're cancelled, people will be reimbursed. If they're rescheduled, they'll be reimbursed if they can't make the new date. 

They'll announce something soon. Any lack of info. I'd chalk up disorganization before greed. 

EDIT: I just noticed they sent out an email advertising flannel - maybe I should eat my hat.
