  3. We're in the afternoon on the 6th of February in the UK, so thought it was time to make a thread to wish ginger bollocks a very happy birthday. If you're reading, I wish you nothing but the best - health, happiness and Hardschool to be released to the fans. God bless, Uncle Ax. Thanks for the music. We need more of it though and I know you're sat on a goldmine.

  4. - Considered for replacing Izzy in 1991, but didn't audition: Dave Navarro, Marc Ford, Mick Cocks (Rose Tattoo), Mike Staggs (Axl's friend and bandmate in Indiana who played additional guitar on Ain't It Fun) - Gilby, 1991-1994, toured and played on the Spaghetti Incident. - Paul Huge/Tobias: 1994-1997 undefined official status - played on Sympathy for the Devil. 1997-2002: member, played on CD and at four shows. - Zakk Wylde: Did tryout sessions with the whole band in January 1995. Probably stayed on hold for a few months until he got a fax (from Slash) that he wasn't needed.

  7. Some of you guys really need to step outside the world of this forum. To wish any person a happy birthday and then mention something for your own selfish reasons, is more of reflection on you as a person.. Cannot some of you just wish the man a happy birthday and leave it at that... How about being a decent human being, and in this case, leave your issues at the door... Happy birthday Axl

  9. People that think rockstars are automatically rich and set for life don't realize the vast majority of rockstars go broke, and when you are making money in the late 80's/early 90's expenses rise to income. After that, when you aren't touring, and spending money recording for decades, the well gets drained. Axl might mentally not want to do things for money, but at some point, bills need to be paid and banks and vendors don't give extensions on due dates to save a persons feelings on musical integrity. Axl bought his Malibu house around 1990, it is public record on mortgages taken out agains

  11. I was listening to Oh My God again and I couldn't help but think about the direction of the band Axl had in mind. I love all eras of GNR and I do really like oh my God. When I stop and think about the content we could have gotten from Axl in the late 90s still in his prime boggles my mind. I know the turn to more industrial rock sound isn't everyone's cup of tea but I am I fan of almost every genre of music. Not just hard rock. So the song is such an interesting look into where Axl was musically at the time. The dude never stopped evolving. Estranged sounds nothing like anything from appetite

  17. Nope. What scares me though is this apparent, omnipresent evidence of how easily we let some external factors divide us in two extreme antipoles and completely deprive us of the capability of having civilized discussion, where one doesn’t just spew out their “truths” to the face of the other person but actually listens to him/her and weighs his/her opinion and point of view. I mean, what happened to critical thinking? But if you want to think of yourself as being able to think critically, you can’t just stand with your back in front of that which you believe, guarding it against wh

  19. @rock4eva Rock4Eva was a poster I met on here many (for me) years ago. There is not a single person I have met who had gone through the personal strife she did, and to say she is an inspiration is an understatement. She was a big fan of Axl and Guns N' Roses, and we shared a love for the music. Axl's music made her feel closer to some of her loved ones. Putting that into perspective, I'd like to thank GNR and Axl for that. She hasn't posted in many years, and she was never particularly active, but she was still apart of our community and I'd feel weird if I didn't post somethi

  22. Goal is to interview everyone on this list! So far Gilby, Ryan Roxie, Gary Sunshine, and Richard Fortus. I did interview Bumble for my first radio job before Chinese came out, but he still doesn't want to come on a GNR-themed podcast. Either way, I have a long way to go to complete this list

  24. The relentless "I Hate Axl" crew is one reason I want him to write it. Whenever I've heard Axl's side of things I generally have thought "Huh, that makes sense" or "Well, that's not as bad as people made it out to be." Case in point: people claiming he wouldn't go on stage until the band signed the legal name of Guns N' Roses over to him. People believed that for years. The legitimate press wrote about it. Then late one night on a forum (maybe this one) Axl said, "that's impossible because legally speaking that's a contract under duress and would not hold up." That simple sentence brought a lo

  26. You don't have to imagine how effective they are. You can simply google it. As for the people who aren't blindly following experts and in favour of critical thinking: I've been taking medication for most of my life and had all the vaccines they suggest. Do I know what's in my meds or vaccines? Really? Of course not. I'm not a doctor. So I count on others to tell me what's best for me and my health. If I go to the doctor when I'm sick and he prescribes meds, am I a dumbass for following his treatment 'blindly'? Should I be more critical? What good would that be if I don't have the expertis

  29. Let's say I decide to see GNR in November and it's a poor performance so I come on here and vent my frustrations a little bit. If that oppresses someone who 'is' satisfied and allegedly positive so they don't want to express themselves, feel personally attacked or whatever - then that person needs to grow up and I'd argue they're the negative person, not me. Like wow you get what you wanted, you're satisfied and positive but you also need everyone else to validate you by either agreeing or being silent. DD is gone. Name what other posters are supposedly super fucking negative? A very smal

  34. Id love to meet Axl...sit him down and ask him how he feels about completely pissing away his talent..the logic behind releasing one album in 30 years...why he is sitting on completed songs for 20 years and not releasing them..what he does on a day to day basis..is he not embarrassed when he sees his peers releasing album after album..building up a legacy...why the fuck can he not stay in shape...the dude is hitting 60...the end is approaching..what the fuck is he waiting for?

  36. Fair enough, but I can confirm it's absolutely fucking shit being in the UK at the moment, as literally everyone I know thinks. The mood is about as sour as it's possible to be, everything is locked down with no dates for reopening, there's no work, benefits cuts looming. So many people I know are seriously depressed....so while you may have found it great to pop over for a holiday (it's remarkable that we never closed borders or even had testing for foreign visitors at any point.....hence why we're so fucked now!) spare a thought for those of us who have spent most of 2020 and all of 2021 sit

  37. Have they treated us badly? They have given me some of my favorite music and a history that is immensely entertaining. That more than 99.99% of what other bands have given me. In fact, if I was going to be negative, I should be negative towards all those other bands that have given me less. What bothers some fans and make them come across as overly negative, is when their expectations and wishes for Guns N' Roses don't come to fruition. But for most part, that's their own fault for believing rumours or trusting vague promises from guys we know aren't trustworthy. I can't be negative towa

  39. Finally a new chapter added, no. 23! It's been a while, life got in the way and I've had to trawl through a huge amount of interviews and articles to feel ready to update the history. This chapter deals with the period after Rock in Rio in January 2001 to the start of the tour in November 2002. This was a comparatively stable period with only Richard coming in to replace Paul, although rumours swirled that Bucket was on the verge of leaving. There were also managerial changes as Merck Mercuriadis took over for Goldstein. The band had a disastrous appearance at the MTV VMAs and the tour i

  41. To double down on what I wrote above. Doug Goldsteins alleged letter to Axl in 2009 outlines several money making opportunities for Axl and even mentions "setting him up for life". Now I doubt Doug has Axl's bank statements, but I would venture to guess he knew how much Axl was taking home in the 1987 - 1993 era, and he probably has a good idea of what was being spent as well. Just a guess, but maybe he knew people that knew Axl and therefore knew the situation was tight financially? All roads lead to Axl needing money in 2009, in my opinion, which is why he embarked on endless tours. Rem

  42. BS. There's a difference between "I like how the original sounds" and what Slash does on TIL. There seems to be zero consideration for structure, it starts fast, the middles fast and the ends faster... As traditional solos go, it's a great example of doing it wrong. If Slash played on that song in the 90s he would have put a far more restrained structured and melodic solo on it... the Slash of today plays a solo that has more to do with technique than soul... which is funny considering you bashed the guitar players who replaced him for having no soul. IF Slash played something comp
