  1. Just now saw this thread: I've never spoken on behalf of Ron, but I do want to put everyone at ease. He is just fine. I assume he'll be making a public statement soon, so I'll wait to see if he does to share more info but I assure you, he is just fine

  2. Posted on a forum dedicated to a band who peaked 30 years ago, that is like Axl Rose complaining that his dinner guests arrived 2 hours late lol

  3. These 'fans' think they're doing it for Axl/TB, real fans love the stuff that Gibbo, Frans and others put out. The GNR Selects does more damage to the band than anything the fans have posted.

  5. Guys, Robin Finck left Guns N Roses in 2008. Buckethead in 2004. What fucking planet are you lot living on to think that they would appear on any new GNR album when Slash is in the band now! Like, seriously!? What the actual fuck?!

  7. My predictions: Axl will suck. Slash will suck. Duff will be punk as fuck. Richard will show some more side boob. Frank will actually be just fine but because everybody else sucks he will be blamed for the suckage. Dizzy will have a new djembe to make Welcome to the Jungle sound better than it ever has. Steven and Izzy don't have shit on this new djembe. Melissa will have a new hair colour and take over on lead vocals for most of the set.

  11. I struggle with anxiety/depression and I have to go with Axl's peace of mind here. Those kind of problems don't vibe well with the music industry, especially when you're someone like Axl. I understand that as fans, we want that material. To justify my answer though, I relate to the stress that comes with writing/releasing music and I'm on an underground level. That shit is terrifying at times because as a songwriter, you know all of the intricacies of your music and you can fall into the trap of being a perfectionist. I can't imagine how much worse it is on Axl's level.

  12. People please! Please forget about everything you loved that's gone now! Forget about the Beatles, forget about Jimi Hendrix. Forget about all the classics released by the Stones and by Led Zeppelin. You love Scarface or the Godfather? Rocky, Rambo, Die Hard? Maybe Indiana Jones? Forget it! They're more than 35 years old. Don't stuck in the past! Watch Fast and Furious instead and the 19th Pirates Of The Caribbean. Your Kids aren't young anymore? They passed their 35th Birthday? Forget them! They're worthless and useless now! Don't stuck in the past! Mate, just wait for

  14. I really hate the "oh it will never have the impact of AFD, so why bother with new material" excuse/argument. There aren't any other bands that do this, and it's utterly ludicrous. Imagine if you applied that attitude to life? "Ah, you know, I had a great birthday party, so I'm not going to have another one" etc. Anyone in their right mind knows that anything they do won't have the same impact as the past - they're older, the world (and music) has moved on. It goes without saying. AC/DC fans loved their last album, even though they all know it's not Back In Black. JUST DO SOM

  16. I’m normally not one of the constantly negative people, but as things progress, it’s really hard sometimes. I wholeheartedly love Axl and the band, but when I look at what’s been happening with the legacy in the last four years or so… So, predictions for the next show? Us, here, live phone streaming via FB as usual. Show starts. McBob with that thunder voice: “Are you all well? It’s been a fucking long pause! So we’ve got some vaccine for you… from Hollywood!!” etc. First eye-roll emoji appear. Me: Please don’t start with ISE, please don’t start with ISE, god don’t

  19. Any of these hoarders with rare stuff from any era have WAY overplayed their hand at this point. No one is going to pay large sums of money for any of this stuff anymore. The time to cash in would've been 2006 - 2012ish when a large amount of die hard fans would have still cared. Nowadays, die hards and casuals have the same mindset: If something leaks, cool. If not, cool. There's just no money to be made on this stuff anymore because the fan base as a whole is just indifferent as to whether they see/hear it or not.

  21. Wow. Seriously? I swear to God, I do not understand why GN'R fans can't all just get along. You would think that fans would band together to support each other, especially since the band itself doesn't seem to care about its fans. What a bummer.

  22. We were playing three nights at the Tokyo dome,” remembers Duff. “I kinda figured out how much I was making from those shows – and it was a lot. Anyway, I’d bought a Corvette a couple of years before, which had always been my dream car. It was great. A convertible black Corvette. Beautiful. So after this show in Tokyo, Gilby was wandering around in this shirt that I really liked. I said, ‘Tell your wife to go to my house in LA and get the keys to my Corvette. I’ll trade it for your shirt.’ He said, ‘You’re fucking kidding me!’ This car was worth over $30,000! But I didn’t care, I just bought a

  24. I just call the AFD lineup the "original lineup" in casual conversation because everyone knows what we mean when we say that. And I remember a couple of now-banned past members here always got GNR-triggered when someone called a non-Tracii Guns lineup the "original" lineup so I still do it in hopes I can piss off people that uptight about these semantics

  25. Oh the irony of people here complaining about the too fast tempo of Franks's playing and then praising the super fast Taylor Hawkins version of It's So Easy.

  26. I saw Frank playing live in 2010 and in 2016: if he played faster was because someone told him to do it. In 2010 played slower, and I doubt that he forget to play drums after that.

  27. Slash has mentioned that he has recorded stuff for GnR (besides jamming). From the most recent interviews: January 2020 (so pre-quarantine): Jude Gold: Do you play the original Appetite guitar that much? Does it sit behind... Slash: No, actually I just took it back to the locker the other day. I had it in the studio working on some Guns stuff, so... Jude Gold: And so what is the plan for Guns? There is a tour coming up? Slash: There’s everything! Jude Gold: You still didn’t put something new, I mean... Slash: No, there’s a new... We’re doing a show for the Super Bowl

  30. I would have to disagree. Axl's voice and his singing, especially in his prime, was fabulous. I am not just talking about his extreme range and ability to sing in different voices which made it a very versatile tool for different kinds of music, but especially his ability to add emotions to his singing which so nicely complemented Slash. You felt Axl meant every fucking word he sang. Or at least I did. I would also say he is a talented song writer, with songs like Estranged and November Rain. Lastly, I think he was a unusually gifted frontman, at least back in the 80s and 90s. A lot of this ca

  31. ...but a bunch of folk who get together to make a couple of quid singing their old songs now and again. No reunion here but they are selling tickets and thats what matters I suppose. I have been a fan for a year and been on the forum for the same amount of time,, the amount of posts have become a trickle, which is understanable as nothing happens, and interestingly mostly men, just an observation.

  36. Ditch everything recorded by the pre-2016 line-up. If it would've been good, it would've been released. No excuses. Start fresh, write 15 songs, narrow it down to 10, record and release. Shouldn't be too hard for professional musicians. It wouldn't even cost much, if they'd have the songs written and arranged before going to studio. But they are creatively bankrupt as a band, so nothing is going to happen.

  38. Another section added: 25. AUGUST 2004-MAY 2006: FINALIZING CHINESE DEMOCRACY; LAWSUITS; RETURN TO NYC (a-4-d.com) This deals with the period from August 2004 until May 2006. People got to hear more of the elusive Chinese Democracy through various leaks, band members indicated that only some vocals and mixing remained. Axl returned to the spotlight in 2006. A replacement for Buckethead was finally found in Bumblefoot. Velvet Revolver toured and started to splinter. Slash paid a nightime visit to Axl's house. But denied it happened. Media speculated that VR was about to break up and Slash

  39. Thats stupid. They wouldn't keep a ex guitarist from 20 years agos solo and guitar work when they now have slash. If anything it would be re recorded by slash with his own solo and changes to suit his style.

  41. Seriously. I remember the only time engaging in any type of "exclusive" stuff was when I was 15 (literally half my life ago at this point) and getting the IEM from the Download festival in 2006 in a trade. You know what I did immediately after I got it? I leaked it. I got some written tongue lashings from people behind the scenes after that. I told them to fuck off then and still don't regret it. There was, and likely still is, a ton of ego with the traders in this community. The band certainly doesn't help it the way they act either.

  43. I have to say, I actually gave this one a second watch. The only other one to get that distinction from me was the Mexico/Houston one. I think most would agree that this is far from the best of the 2016 shows, but ultimately it proves that even a weaker 2016 show is lightyears ahead of what was to follow. Seriously, just give us a bunch of 2016 material and we'll probably shut up for a while!

  44. That Axl is very talented has been attested by almost everyone who has ever worked him (including people who haven't had any reason, motive or need to kiss his ass). Apparently it's a flawed talent, as it seems that he has a big difficulty in finishing what he starts, and an even bigger difficulty in releasing it, which has been often attributed to perfectionism. I think it's mostly insecurity - and that's where "perfectionism" stems from - which became bigger and bigger over the years (especially after he was on his own) and he doesn't seem to have recovered from it even with the reunion
