  1. Axl usually starts rehearsing during the first show.

  2. I appreciate everyone's kind words and willing to listen to me vent. FYI, I talk about it more on my latest episode after the interview with Dee. Truthfully, I toiled with starting this conversation. Don't want to appear bitter, angry, or entitled. Especially since I don't know Team Brazil at all. I don't want to formulate my opinion based on other's comments. I want to err on the side of them being good people, how would I really know? People think Axl's a jerk, but those close to him say otherwise. Goes for all of us! Some of the obstacles have been going on for years. To be expected, I

  3. Axl's camp take themselves way to seriously. It's just a rock band, they are not that important, no one is going to die because they get some shitty click bait article that a few people read. It's just so ridiculous, no one cares about it aside from the hardcore fans and they don't give a flying shit about us. So what's the problem ?

  4. seems like they're trying to control everything. Like just to make sure no one says anything that can damage the brand or piss off Axl, it's best if everyone is just quiet, even if it's a positive and informative podcast, it doesn't matter. I think that some of Brando's guests are considered to be "enemies" or "detractors" of Axl like Niven or Doug for example so he's on their shit list now. They take issue with the name of the podcast? Frank is nervous now? the dude from Dirty Honey can't be on the podcast cause he's close with Slash? lol wow. They're crazy. another good thing fucke

  6. I have a good friend who's in the industry...he plays and works with a few small/midsized bands and works for a live equipment company out in LA. He was here in Chicago late last week and told me that he was working at the building Gn'R was rehearsing at for a day last week and said they were working on different songs from last tour and heard parts of a few songs he didn't know, and Axl was there. He's not a massive Guns fan, but has seen them numerous times since 87 and does know all of their recorded songs, so I guess take that for what it is. I figured he was just BSing me cause he knows I

  7. My bet is the Foo Fighters guys actually meet, rehearse, record, all the stuff, you know. Hence some increased risks. With Guns, I'd say we're safe in this case...

  11. 100% this. They can have their privacy just fine, I totally respect that and I'm not even interested in what any of them are doing outside of the music. But saying stuff like hey how is it going and by the way I like your product very much and was wondering if there's any chance for a little more variety (= new song/album) isn't invading privacy, it's just customers being interested in the product. Being a GNR fan these days is like asking nicely for a refill and then have the barista slapping you in the face with a wet towel for enjoying the coffee.

  15. See this is the problem right here, one of them wants to do something, the other one doesn’t and there’s no compromise. would it have killed slash to do it? What’s it cost him? 3 hours of his life!!!! so many missed opportunities. This example is exactly why the pair of them pissed 30 years of prime career time down the toilet. Both of them are dumb fucks. 🤦‍♂️

  16. John Mayer has a new album coming out tomorrow. Because of that and the pandemic and the Iron Maiden single, tomorrow is just isn't the right time for a new GN'R release. I'm not even sure if tomorrow will work for them to start looking seriously in that regard.

  17. Don't forget Alan Niven! I'm a big fan of the podcast. Years ago I told Brando that if he has people like Goldstein and Niven on his show that he should anticipate the wrath of GNR and TB. It's petty and unnecessary. But also predictable.

  18. Interesting. I wonder how the TB defenders will reply to this. It's been proven over and over that TB actively works against people trying to promote GN'R. Yet, there are always defenders saying "well, we don't know for sure". We knew for sure last time and we know for sure now. Why on Earth would you want to stop someone from actively promoting your brand for free? I have no idea, but TB excels at it.

  20. Axl is the problem, not the GN'R name. There's a very common miscommunication that Chinese Democracy wasn't received well. The album actually received very positive reviews in the press. It also debuted very high on the Billboard charts. Radio stations were also VERY supportive during the week and month it was released. You know who wasn't positive or supportive of its release? Axl. Axl did absolutely nothing to promote his own album. So all of the goodwill, positive press, positive reviews and general buzz died out completely because Axl did nothing. So in short, the GN

  21. Would it be a crime to take a picture of an actual live person participating in the rehearsal, like playing an instrument? Maybe even two or more people, or god forbid, the band playing? Jeez. Keep everything veiled and don't give the fans anything as usual. As if Elvis is making a surprise appearance.

  23. I’m happy Slash is gonna release new music soon. It’s not like Conspirators are getting in the way of a Guns N’ Roses record. This just makes it plainly obvious GNR had no intention of releasing an album. There is no album.

  25. This one? Slash: [...] The other side of it was figuring out what my version of The Chinese Democracy stuff would be like, because that was a whole different Guns N’ Roses animal in terms of the musicians involved. A lot of it I thought was really cool, like Buckethead did some cool shit so I would stick to that but do it in my own way so it didn’t feel too foreign or like I was squeezing a round peg into a square hole. That was interesting and fun… more fun than it was intimidating. Q: On the song Better, instead of trying to play like Robin Finck trying to play like you - as per th

  26. Congrats man! I uploaded this in the Vinyl thread the other day, while not strictly related and all that! I kept mine sealed. There is scans out there of the booklet, so that fills the void and prevents me opening it. Do what you want though, it's yours and for you to enjoy however you wish!! Definitely one of the coolest pieces I own, which wouldn't have been possible without @GNRfanMILO

  27. Generally respect your opinions (and enjoy reading them) on here and the Aerosmith board, man, but disagreeing here. I am beyond frustrated with the attitude of “you do you” on this vaccination. Anti-vaxers are prolonging this virus and giving it time and possibilities to mutate into something worse (which it has). We would have never beat polio with this type of low-grade thinking. Agree it’s not a political thing. It’s a common sense thing. It can be a selfless thing. There are people in the hospital because of breakthroughs (folks who are vaccinated but still got it). The folks

  28. I recently listened to two pretty good bootlegs of the band and I wanted to post my amateurish reviews here, it's not like there's anything interesting going with GNR right now. CINCINNATI 2016 (Steven Adler returns!) Saying "Axl gets better as the tour progresses" has become a meme now but back in 2016 it's definitely true. Here Axl was vocally much better than in the april shows when he was sitting on the throne. Jungle is full rasp but Axl nailing that song in the early legs of the NITIL wasn't uncommon. To my surprise he even rasped the epic outro of Rocket Queen. YCBM was mostly Mi

  31. I received a proof of vaccination requirement for a concert that’s not until October. It’s so frustrating. It’s free to get the vaccine, we have more than enough supply here in the US, and yet there’s still a significant percentage of morons that refuse to get vaccinated because they don’t believe in science nor do they care who they are putting in danger.

I have tickets for the second show and could care less. I have been holding onto them for two years and it is on a Tuesday night. The band isn't doing anything to stir up any excitement. They are all 5 years older.. I expect Axl to look and sound like shit and use the show as a rehearsal. Ridiculous hats and elf boots included. They will still have the same half assed lineup complete with a terrible drummer and a blue hai

  42. Worth noting that Iron Maiden's manager asked me to remove part of my Adrian Smith interview. I asked about the Maiden/GNR tour and he gave a very generic, 'I guess Axl didn't like us but it worked out in the end' response. Still, Maiden's management was worried about "Blabbermouth clickbait." I agreed to pull it as not to burn a bridge. Like with my cancelled Duff interview, this was also set through my job. So as professional as it could be. However there are just some mgmt or part of their team that does whatever they can to "protect" from clickbait or anything they think could be negative

  43. I always laugh when I read shit like "Slash just plays the solos his own way". When Robin and Bucket played the old solos "their way", they got nothing but shit from most fans. But Slash gets away with it because he's Slash.

  44. No it's not, he could've played all the AFD songs and YCBM easily with them. The best performance imo with him was the first one in Cincinnati. That's when we saw a glimpse of the past. He's sober now and was then also. There's absolutely nothing wrong with him that would prevent him from playing a few songs with them.

  45. Congrats! Fun Fact: there are a lot more of these out there, but they haven't surfaced yet. A friend of mine worked for Universal and had a full box of them, which is how I got mine. The box my friend had held like 40 copies in it. He had NO idea they were rare until I told him. According to him, "many other people" at Universal have the same boxes full of them. He said no one has any idea they're rare, so the boxes are probably just sitting in closets, in storage or were just thrown away. In any case, if you open it you'll CD that the actual CD looks different and the b

  46. Brando from the AFD podcast posted a live video today where he talks about how TB are harassing guests he had on and are basically going after his show. Around 11.30 mins into the vid. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CRRvqsbAafV/?utm_medium=copy_link This is outrageous.

  48. this is honestly one of the most disgusting things I've heard in a long time. I've listened to a lot of episodes of AFD and Brando comes off as nothing but a respectful, class act FAN doing a passionate project for a band he loves. I've never heard anything even remotely scandalous on his show that would make GNR look bad. For 20 plus years I dreamed of seeing Axl and slash on a stage together. and I was thrilled to see them 3 times on the NITL tour. But in the 4 years that I last saw them I've seen too much of this bullshit by management and honest this is the last straw for me.
