  1. You know what the saddest part of all this is (at least for me)? I can't even be bothered to get mad anymore. I used to be SO passionate about GN'R, their music and their future. This "band" has beaten me down so much to the point where I truly don't care anymore. I expect absolutely nothing of worth from them, so I'm never disappointed. Even if they dropped a surprise album tomorrow, I'd just listen to it when I have a chance. That's a stark contrast to where I was years ago where I'd jump through any hoop necessary to hear new GN'R music as soon as humanly possible. I

  3. I made this meme putting to use my knowledge of this band when I had nothing to do. There are more things I could've put I know. What do you think?

  4. Ah, 2016. Who knew it could feel so nostalgic already. Axl was back on top of the world between the long awaited reunion and fronting AC/DC. There were basically nothing but positive headlines on all fronts. The broken foot, the Dave Grohl chair, Coma back in the set at every show, Axl sounding very good overall, the leaked AC/DC rehearsal videos that proved what a voice he still had, and a bright future. Then the next four years happened.

  7. The 'racism/xenophobia' thing is a ridiculous thing to say to people as it's trying to start a fire that really, really doesn't exist here.

  8. The most exciting part was all the mystery leading up to the first show.. Then as soon as it happened it was apparent that Axl still looked and sounded like crap.. They still had the extra Synth player and she was even more ridiculous than Pitman.. maybe... There was no Izzy Adler or even Gilby or Matt.. It was very deflating.. I wanted to sell my tickets to the Vegas show.. I ended up having a great time at the Vegas show but it was apparent that it was never going to be as good as it could or should have been.. I passed on Cincinnati tickets (like an asshole) because they weren't good e

  12. I am European, I am not xenophobic, I like people from Brasil but I don t like Fernando!! I wouldnt like him if he was Austrian, Japanese, New Zealand, French, Haiti, from uruguay or from any country in the world. It‘s the person and the job he does we don t like! He has not done one good thing a band manager does. Instead he acts like the biggest leech ever. you are accusing people of being xenophobic but thats not true! why do you feel offended cause someone offends Fernando? Only because you re both from Brazil!??? Cmon, I dont feel offended if someone offends someone from m

  13. 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

  15. I'm more annoyed by TB and Fernando's behaviour than their managerial skills. Mostly the way they handle themselves. It's so obvious they enjoy this quasi celebrity status they have among GN'R fanbase. Despite being universally disliked they enjoy nothing more than soaking up the attention of hardcore fans who are intrigued solely because these people have such close connection to Axl Rose. I also find their MO towards fans disrespectful and annoying. I also can't stand when they use the term "we" in connection with Guns N' Roses or refer to it as "our band". Not because I'm jealous,

  17. The pandemic isn't the reason we don't have a new GN'R. The pandemic, along with Slash, Robin, Duff, Tommy, Bucket, Rolling Stone or Spin magazine, Azoff, Merck, on and on and on and on....none of these or things are the reason we don't have a GN'R album. There's one dude who is to blame though. He's always been the problem and he'll always be the problem.

  18. Wowwww. Just read through this lol. I'm not from the GenZ cancel culture and I can handle a joke.. at the same time for this guy to come on here and fukn throw shit at everyone saying "If he were AmeRicAn" Listen up @Legendador I don't give a flying fuck if you are purple and pink stripe alien with 3 fuckn heads, if your good at what you do than great. And if not then get the fuck out. As for Fernando. He has shown many times through his ACTIONS, not his CULTURAL BACKGROUND, that he is SHIT AT HIS JOB. For instance, fake leads to fans via reddit and so on. That in itself

  19. So you think peoples criticism of Fernando is because he's Brazilian? Give me a break pal.

  20. The way Fernando had handled (or NOT handled) GN'Rs business is offensive as hell to most fans, so I guess we're even on that front. Also, remember that this thread was created as a fun April Fools joke. So there was absolutely no need to come in and attempt to suck all the fun out of it by defending a guy who A) doesn't need you to defend him and B) there's no defense for anyway.

  26. 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.

It gets a bit better near the end UTLH - He sings it too high Nightrain - My favourite track, instrumentally great, let down by the vocals. Nice shot of Fortus's left tit.

  31. Hell, I lost $50 to @Toweliebecause I was CONVINCED that GN'R would put out at least one new (unheard 30 years ago) song by the end of 2016. I literally bet on GN'R to handle their career right and ended up paying $50 to another user. How's that for blind optimism? Lol

  34. My thoughts exactly. I was notoriously obsessed with Guns N' Roses. I was the "Guns N' Roses guy" to everyone that knew me. Even before YouTube, Wikipedia, all the official biographies and all the interviews with the insiders like managers, etc. I was a walking GN'R encyclopedia. I fucking loved this band. The only thing that remains is my love for their music. I've lost so much respect it makes me sad. And I just dont give a fuck anymore. I don't expect anything. I don't demand anything.

  35. And isn't that so sad? As I was typing that I thought "I bet a LOT of GN'R fans feel this way too". It bums me out that that's the case, but it's the reality.

  36. It's Axl, the shit that we complain about is down to him. Interviews are shit, nobody wants to say the wrong thing in case Axl disapproves Only Axl can say what is happening and when. He chooses not to. Axl is slowly killing the band Axl is more invested in the brand He needs to shit or get off the pot All my own personal opinions.

  39. 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

  40. I thought that was great, with Sorry being the pick of the bunch for me. Great quality video, sound and vision wise and a good performance. Main thoughts - rock music should only EVER be played in the dark. The difference between this and the other more recent Selects is black and white. The tour should have stopped in 2018, and left everyone hungry for more. And I include the band members in that- they look so much more into it here. All in all- enjoyed the hell out of it. Reminded me why they're my favourite band.

  41. What really hits me is what's happened in the last five years. People have gone from massive excitement to absolute indifference in that space of time. That's genuinely sad when you think about it. To go from people DESPERATE to see them play live to not even interested when they visit their city is awful. I really hate that that has happened, when there was absolutely no need for it to be the case. That's the main take away of the last five years for me.

  42. In 2000, Dave Wild had the rare opportunity to interview Axl Rose and hear Chinese Democracy 8 years before it came out! The longtime journalist and TV producer joins us for a bevy of Axl stories and reflection. David Wild's Wild Axl Interview | Ep. 256 - YouTube David was great. If you have any specific questions for him, he'll be on again.

  46. Well, for many reasons both personal and professional I have been studying vocal techiniques and working with a vocal coach for the past year, and thought I'd chime in. Unfortunately Axl's singing has every indication of someone who studied a lot of vocal techniques, applies them and seems to be working hard on getting around his sadly increasing limitations. There are a few examples. When Axl screams or sings a longer vowel, note that his tongue is pressing against his lower teeth. That is proper singing techinique, is something that you study and train or body to do as it ensures optima
