This is a joke. Here we are even giving advice on the illusions anniversary, if TB cant upload videos how the fuck can they be trusted to manage an anniversary release?. :lol:

 

The box set is put together by the record company, not management, so there's a chance they'll actually put something great together if they're asking for input.

I hope so. I just hope TB can stay away from it otherwise he will throw in a kids book to the first 100 boxsets.

Metallica must be seriously disrespecting world events as they have uploaded 4 full length concerts in the last month

I'd be willing to judge GNR on a curve.  Metallica has been offering live performance clips and video since 2003 (maybe longer).   I wouldn't judge GNR on Metallica standards, but rather on the good faith effort scale.

In the Metallica world, practically every single concert since 2004 is available for purchase or stream, while also slowly adding older concerts from their vault.  Metallica is doing everything that I wish GNR were doing.  There are a ton of examples of what I believe are successful models to extract money from fans, and take advantage of available tapes (video and audio).  And multiple artists have also made statements to reflect what they want to say during these difficult times, and continued weekly webcasts.

I don't perceive that there's been an effort, even after the demand for North Korean style praise for the NITL video.

I would take that, would be way better than what we have now.

We have gotten more info (working on new music, previously leaked tour dates) fromher than what we had from TB.

Oh my god, this is beyond ridiculous. And even in such a short communication he manages to act like a dick ("It's called..." - as if he couldn't have written it in a normal, non-snippy way). Pathetic.

That comment is hilarious! 

If they want to pay respect, start the video with a mobile phone video of Axl saying "we stand with the BLM movement!". Metallica kept releasing their videos and just released a statement at the tip of the video showing solidarity. It's supposed to be an escape from the chaos... that's the point dumb dumb:facepalm: I guess the update on refunds is on hold too because of the protests🤣

Not doing anything and then saying oh it's because we respect you too much... laughable. Admit it, it's just too difficult to do something when you don't make buggar all from it financially. Fuck this disrespectful sham of a band. 

This. A comment/statement by Axl or the band right before the video(s) would reach millions of people ... in the majority white people. The band could use their brand to promote anti-racism and act as role models. 

But no. Guns N Roses indtead decided to help  black people by simply doing nothing, including not releasing hard rock videos. Its so damn ridiculous. 

As a white guy I am just ashamed that this stupid band really has the nerves to even use the black peoples suffering as an excuse for their own mismanagement. This tops it all.

I actually find it disrespectful that Fernando uses the  heartbreaking events on a worldwide basis as an excuse to not put out a couple of vids....I have not been around here very long and my excitement at finding this band is dissipating pretty quickly.  

This is exactly the same I was thinking at the same time :-)

Interesting HTGTH is down. Suitable, isn't it? Also happened before under very similar circumstances. Not trying to be paranoid or anything but I can see a pattern here :-)

Fuck htgth. My bet would be F'n-ando & J. studied 'social skills and communication' under the same asshole of a teacher.

This is a low point, one of many unfortunately. It's unprofessional and unacceptable.

If this was a sports club, Fernando's ass would have so been fired by now. 

Wouldn’t have been hired to begin with. Anywhere, for that matter.  Nepotism at its finest...

Spoiled little brat, Fucknandont strikes again. Slash and Duff should be ashamed of themselves for being part of this.

Wait, Fernando is seriously saying that the protests mean it is disrespectful for GNR to put 3 more live tunes on Youtube?

I am not sure of the logic behind that.  Everyone is aware of the protests, yet beyond Blackout Tuesday there has been no call for the music industry to halt by anyone - literally so many bands are releasing things the past couple of weeks and all that fun stuff.  

To me I just don't get why this band can simply act... normal.  Everything has to be some sort of setback and a delayed response

He's such a gentleman, isn't he?

Using such a tragedy as an excuse for his laziness tells how much respect he shows for current events.

If Axl wants to kick someone's ass, Fernando's is the right target.

Unless it is Axl pulling the strings and he has no say...who knows, but all this procrastination is exhausting.  

 

Does he have an awareness of the effect of his actions I wonder.

No offense, but you seriously do believe Slash and Duff (especially Duff) let some nobody like Fernando let decide about GUNS N ROSES’s legacy?!?! 

I think they DO care very much about Youtube, live releases etc. They both are on not only on social media but do release (live) records on a regular basis. I think that its all about contractual bullshit and Axl has full control about any potential release. And since Mr. W. Axl Rose is the only person in this b(r)and who wasn’t able to deliver a professional performance,  within a four year reunion nothing official has been released to date ... oh, yeah , besides of a 13 minutes clip with the lead singer (!) cut out. 

Fernando acts like he's the man, so that's why he gets treated like he's responsible for that. We can blame Axl, Slash and Duff when they announce something and don't deliver. In this case it was Fernando.
