I think the guy gets a hard time. It's Axl Rose who is responsible for GNR and it's ridiculous lack of new music over the last 30 years. Fans should direct their frustrations at the organ grinder, not the monkey. 

100 percent.

Do you think Axl has lost all interest and his goal now is to make a load of dosh and scram?  I am perplexed, if they are not going to do anything more except tour then why not just say so...hmmm.  Or maybe they like playing cat and mouse.

That's true. Not sure where fans can direct their frustration. To a Twitter account that he logs in to 5 times a year?

Fernando bares the brunt of it, because deep down, the fans know Axl doesn't give a shit and never has.

Or we could go and support lesser known artists who work their arse off and release new material as opposed to paying silly money for something approaching cabaret. 

 

After the initial excitement of seeing a certain combination of players onstage again at the start of NITL, I've had very little interest after it became obvious that nothing creative was forthcoming. 

I'll jump to purchase as soon as there's something genuinely new released but if it's just endless touring and releasing stupid shite like children's books, I'll not bother paying attention.

Are these all officially announced to be released rather than 'I believe' to be released. 

Wow this will be the 15th studio album release by Bon Jovi. Their first album was only 3 years before Appetite.

Obviously Fernando is not very well liked here!   I am not too sure what being so negative will accomplish and as a new person here it has made me feel rather sorry for him.   I find it so disrespectful that somebody recorded this chat when he asked them not too, I would say it was non too honerable.

 

But who am I to comment as you have all been here a long while.

Very naive of him to think he could do a Q And A on the internet and someone not record it really.

Or maybe it was a cry for a help and he knew someone records it? ;D

Its like having a sex chat with a girl online. I actually never record anything and put it online. It really is disrespectful. Fernando wont come back because of that. But his info was useless, so he can stay away.

But honestly what did he expect?

 

You are essentially having to pine on the good will of many others i anything recent events teach us there is no good will left in the world and people are cunts.

It's pretty obvious that his word doesn't mean shit. I think he speaks out of wishful thinking more than anything else. I don't think he wants things to be this way, but Axl's the one calling the shots, and Fernando's just hoping for the best, much like the fans. This is why the online fan community need to stop hanging on Fernando's every word, because until such a time as something is officially announced with regards to new music, there are no guarentees and the promises of a wishful thinking manager mean jack shit.

Right! And the setlist has been pretty much the same for 4 years...

Not really. Whole lotta changes, additions, subtractions. This is a fallacy people propagate just to have something to complain about.

unless people expect popular songs like Jungle, YCBM, heavens door, nightrain, sweet child and so on to be removed, which will never happen.

Yeah, the way he worded it, saying 'deep down I believe it's coming' or something like that, it does sound like something I could say, more wishful thinking than anything. I'm sure he knows after all these years that nothing is sure with GNR unless you're actually seeing it with your own eyes/hearing it/holding it in your hands. The smallest thing seems enough to throw a spanner in the works and block Axl.

Yep the setlist has gone through a bunch of changes since 2016.

Could it have covered more? Of course! But the current setlist is pretty much perfect in terms of what it covers.

Yes. This.

Axl said himself in the 2010 forums chats in answer to when CD was going to be followed up: "don't know, don't care."

This just makes me wonder, if Fernando has to constantly keep deferring to Axl, almost unequivocally, what the hell does he actually manage or do? Does he help with the tour? Does he do anything tangible that we can see? I'm not trying to insult the guy, it seems like a quite difficult job. But with Axl having an agent, a record label, along with everyone else having an agent (and also being one of the biggest bands in the world), i just simply wonder what his week to week job consists of in the GN'R operations..

Telling those people what Axl wants, so Axl doesn't have to talk to them personally. Otherwise I think he's just a gloryfied assistant, doing whatever Axl tells him to do/doesn't want to do himself, because he's a star, with occasional own ideas, which he has to run by Axl to get it done. And bitch about the ungrateful fan base (the one, which affords him to live a life, 90 % of us never get to live).

I think Fernando is useless in a management capacity, but he deserves credit for engaging fans like this. I also think it is a bit disappointing that some people didn't respect his wishes by recording the chat and taking it out of context in parts, but it is what it is.

He stated this many times in the Q&A. He made it clear that he understands the frustrations, but unless the band give him the go ahead on any serious decision then it’s out of his hands entirely. He did sound as if he believes a new album will be released.

Release a remix album of CD stuff until you can properly release a new album if it's real. The fact these dumbfucks can't figure this out is astonishing. 

He is right in that regard. Absolutely no one wants a fucking remix album with songs even further ruined, of an album, no one cared about in the first place, of a line up of GNR long gone, which never was considered to be GNR by anyone anyway. It would be the biggest joke to release that in the 4th year of the Axl/Slash/Duff reunion.

TB is responsible for the virus. There's still no album and they were out of excuses.

 

You heard it here first.

Hey Fernando, do you wanna be a REAL Manager? Make the band release something that's not a GH or remasters of old songs. Make the band work together in new music. Walkin beside Axl Rose everywhere he goes makes you a walker.

 

 

No one does "make" Axl do anything, except Axl (and even he has a hard time convincing him to do something). Fernando knows that. That's why he's the manager. Others didn't. That's why they are Ex-managers.

No, this only confirms that he is a complete failure as a manager. A real professional manager MANAGES to make things happen, that's his job!

Well, you can be real and professional all you want. That won't help you when you have to deal with Axl Rose. There were plenty of real and professional managers along the way and not many things were made to happen. ;) But yeah, at least you would know not to promise things you, deep down in your heart, know you can't promise. But that's why he never confirmed it was him on Reddit. He wanted to say there is an album coming, but he wanted to not bite him in the ass, if it isn't.

That is probably accurate. Real and professional mangers cannot get Axl to comply with industry level demands, so Fernando knows Axl best and can perform many of those duties without any demands that would potentially upset Axl. I’m certain Fernando is good at what his duties are and probably is the gatekeeper to blocking a lot of shit Axl doesn’t even want to waste his energy knowing about.

To be fair though, at least what he says in term of the copyright strikes makes sense and if he is speaking the truth and following up on seeing to it that those strikes get removed, kudos to him.

Edit: Also the fact that he mentions the Troubadour recording, the financial issues they had with the Company that recorded it and that they are still Looking into what can be done with the material, also in conjunction to help the Troubadour, is pretty cool. Of course, on the assumption he's not full of shit and really is following up on it.
