  1. someone needs to distribute around the leaked version since it looks like this won't be coming out anymore. I really want to read it.

  2. PS......the passage where he claims that Stephanie Seymour starting RUBBING HIS BALLS while sitting right next to Axl was probably the most entertaining GNR moment of 2020 for me so far.

  3. Matt even talks shit about Axl's vocal coach, Ron Anderson, calling him a "creepy person" without really elaborating. I think the one who comes off the worst in the book is Matt himself. This is a guy who brags about coming up with a "system" for picking up girls backstage and marking the ones who had given blowjobs to crew members so that the band avoided them.

  4. This pile of tabloid trash was so poorly written it only took me about 2 hours to finish. I started at the chapter when he joined Guns of course; I don't give a shit about his childhood. Holy shit, this guy clearly doesn't give a fuck anymore. He has burned every single last bridge with every member of GNR, even going as far as calling Fernando the "ten year old manager." It's actually really fucking funny, but in an unintentional way. It's nothing but gossip and trash talk. Just drugs drugs drugs and sex sex sex. Everything was everyone else's fault of course. Axl was

  5. Well, I think we can all agree that the big takeaway from today is that Matt Sorum taught Sebastian Bach how to tongue an asshole. Yes?

  7. Wow, that's some mean shit against Matt and Frank, if true. Perhaps those conversations were meant to be private, but still... Fernando asking Matt to play a few shows or songs for free (basically), and Duff saying Frank can't play. Yeah, not exactly great for current GN'R. Never a dull moment with this band, just wish the next album would come out, or leak, or whatever. I'd be happy if most or all the CD era stuff got out somehow, would be good closure until the band can figure something out.

  8. Sad news for everyone. We all lose in this one. Loved @Gambit83’s interview with him. I was really looking forward to this release. Give him some time to find a new publisher or if you do pirate it, be sure to buy it if it comes out in the future.

  11. What a wonderful example. Nobody calls Jarmo a "Swedish leech". Even iff that happens, it's obviously not as often. I'm sorry if you don't see what's wrong with that. But it isn't up to you to decide if something is offensive. If you want to get technical, ok. It's not racism, because our race is Human. The skin color, the nationality or even the genes doesn't make us a different race. That's not even remotely what's being discussed here. I watched a video yesterday by one of my favorite tech youtubers. He said "no matter what I do, I'll always be 'that BLACK youtub

  12. Downloaded it, but haven't read it Based on these tidbits and quotes, it's a) going to be an awkward read and b) no wonder they don't want him involved with the reunion. Telling your side of the truth is one thing, but airing your dirty laundry in public is just kind of embarassing.

  13. Crap! I'm glad you mentioned it. I need to order a copy for my 11 year old for Christmas. She hates GNR and Axl. She has been a horrible little shit lately so it's time for some payback 😈.

  16. Matt really paints Duff as a spineless coward afraid to be straight with him for fear of angering Axl. He repeatedly claims Duff disparages Frank’s drumming, which to me seems like a self-aggrandizing attempt on Matt’s part to push the narrative that some GNR fans believe (that Frank can’t drum). I guess part of me doesn’t want to believe Duff would act that way (anymore). Then again, Sorum has always come off as a bit of a whiney douche with an overinflated ego. So I can totally see him being butthurt about not being asked back in GNR. In the HOF chapter, Matt talks some more about how

  18. Oh definitely, as I said not an excuse but an explanation, y'know, piecing together the story and all that. I don't suppose his intention was even to kill him, though how would I know. I mean, I don't think one thinks much in a situation like that or they wouldn't do it, seems to me he was just, as you say, putting a display of power forward. Either way its resulted in a man dead so I don't suppose it matters other than in whether he gets charged for first or second degree murder. Which I guess probably matters a fair bit if you're him, if it makes the difference between a life sentence or

  22. true but on the other hand, it's not very reliable, if you draw yourself, in every story, as a victim of circumstances, or other people's actions. anyway, these are only my personal impressions from the excrepts we got earlier in this thread.

  28. Hi all, I have been revising the history section at Appetite for Discussion and thought I should give you a heads up about this. If this is new to you here's some background: I am currently in the process (and have been so these last years) of writing the history of Guns N' Roses based on what the band members themselves have said. The idea was to get a bit away from conjecture and biases and assumptions and instead handle each topic in the band's history from what they themselves have said. The good thing about this is of course that it at least tells their story from their perspect

  30. I recall an old interview (it was a video, I believe) where Axl said he and Slash were thinking about or going to work on a version of Amazing Grace.

  31. Alan Niven had mentioned the printing of this interview in Hit Parader - and the way it was presented on the cover of the magazine - as an example of the ways GnR were exploited by the press: According to Niven, media exploitation of the band has been widespread. He cites the March issue of Hit Parader magazine, which put Axl Rose on its cover with Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, touting: "Bas & Axl Interviewed Together For the First Time!" Inside, the magazine admits the joint interview was simply a transcript from a Howard Stern radio show phone interview with the duo. [Los Angeles

  33. Someone very lucky will have no doubt have a test example - there must have been a couple of them created for ‘examples’? Knowing our luck, thousands were probably printed but once the decided to go with the bike, they will have recycled them or something.....😭 And don’t give him any extra encouragement to muck about with CD! 😂

  36. No one here knows anything better, but if you go back in the thread, and read some of the excerpts from the book, you can quickly get the impression that Matt's POV seems to be a bit self-pitying, when it comes to some stories involved recent and former GnR members. So there might be the impression that not everything said in the book, are facts that been considered very objectively by him. Anyway, too bad the book won't be published.

  41. There were plenty of poor pressings that came out at launch. The one I got had issues. The album itself is really dynamic and well mixed, which got some high praise in the time of Death Magnetic loudness. I've mainly listened on CD and there are so many layers, you can hear something new everytime you listen.

  42. I was listening to Madagascar today. What a fucking great song. That MLK speech on the middle part is genius. Axl got a lot of shit for the OTGM lyrics but not that much praise for this. Listen to that middle section today, I think it really speaks about the times that we are living.

  43. We have a sticky thread with @zombux 's tables (with a link to his thread here) in the songs section: https://www.a-4-d.com/f8-gn-r-song-archive I'd like to add that, besides the about 2,500 articles (so far) in the articles/interviews database @SoulMonster mentioned, there are additional sources that are or will be consulted for the writing of the history section: - The concert database which contains many reviews and articles related to the shows (maybe we'll create an index of it in the future so that it can be more easily browsed) https://www.a-4-d.com/f13-gn-r-concert-
