  1. Axl usually starts rehearsing during the first show.

  2. 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

  3. 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...

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 🤦‍♂️

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Have lost a fuck ton of weight since the last pic. Down to 248lbs. Have built some muscle mass as well. 25 pounds in 3 months is a pretty good loss. Hopefully I'll go down some more.

  13. He’s bothered because the crazy, uneducated anti-vaccination conspiracy theorists are spreading the newer, far more contagious delta variant. Vaccines aren’t as effective against it in terms of preventing infection. They prevent seriously illness from delta, for the most part, but folks don’t want a virus and don’t want to spread it to their loved ones It’s hard to understand why this needs to be explained

  16. Hi guys, Just finished adding another section, covering February 2009 to April 2010: FEBRUARY 2009-APRIL 2010: DJ JOINS THE BAND; TOURING CHINESE DEMOCRACY (a-4-d.com) This period after the release of Chinese Democracy was dominated by rumours about the band touring to support the album, followed by the actual touring which covered selected shows in Asia (2009) and then legs in Canada and Latin America (2010) - a tour we fans tend to look back at with fond memories. But the period wasn't entirely without controversies: Axl knocked down a paparazzi at LAX and there were rumours about

  17. 100% this. I have never understood fans who act like it's some sort of privilege to give GN'R money. It's derivative of the whole "the band doesn't owe you anything" BS. It is a privilege for any artist to have a paying audience, not the other way around. I've mentioned this recently, but it's worth repeating: I do understand the "I should see them again because they won't be around forever" argument. If someone feels that way, great! Go to the show and I truly hope you enjoy yourself. However, for someone like me who's seen the over 20 times between 1991 and 2016.... "they w

  19. I get that I am in the minority but I have never been a fan of Axl's heavy use of rasp during the UYI touring. I find it grating. To me he was better in the 80s and in 2006 and later.

  21. Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats was the owner. Gilby speculated that some friends of his who where at the Roger Waters concert (Gilby himself wasn't there) told Axl that he was playing at the Cat Club. Fun fact: Johnny Griparic from Snakepit 2 was at the Cat Club that night and jammed with Axl and Gilby, and Slash almost got there, too, but changed his mind at the last minute. More here: https://www.a-4-d.com/t5186-22-november-1999-january-2001-lineup-turmoil-but-a-triumphal-return#20684 And the full Gilby quote recounting that night and what he and Axl talked about: Gil

  22. It is. There was a thread on this forum a few years ago where Blackstar and I both confirmed this. Since I work for Bloomberg on the data side, I know how to research companies. There was a legal filing dated 2017 that confirms the partnership of Axl, Slash, and Duff in the state of California.

  23. Some bands have done PPV's throughout this pandemic. I'd still love to see Guns do an all acoustic show that is released to the public/televised. It'll never happen, but it really would have been fucking sweet. Just look at L'ARC and Rose Bar when Axl was killing it? Phenomenal. Probably doing something like that, a one off, in 1995/6 maybe would have helped ease the tensions within the band. Just plugging in and doing their back catalogue in an intimate venue.

  24. Right? But seriously, think about it. All they need to do is post one single photo of this sort, and all hell would break loose, in a good way. The fans would have plenty to talk about, there would be hope, joy, all the stuff. One fucking picture. But no, that's not how we roll... We're F'n back, fam.

  28. I definitely disagree. ISE is an untouchable. Not only is it a fan favorite but it's Duff's trademark song, and he is going to want to play that shit. Also Axl still sounds really good on it and it gets the crowd amped. It shouldn't be the opener anymore but I can't imagine GnR ever dropping it, nor should they.

  30. Slash deserves so much credit. This is what musicians live for! To release new music. I believe this will be his 9th album since Guns. And that excludes all the live albums etc. I'll never understand why Axl can't just do the same. Not everything needs to be epic.

  31. I don't think Axl's mindset was other than that he wanted to release a great GN'R record. But he realized that with the changes occurring in music at the time that, that they couldn't just release a simply rock record and expect it to be a success or stand the test of time as innovative and an example of GN'R as a band that could adapt to different styles and remain cool. It needed something more. He was acutely aware of the trends and that GN'R was about to become passé - probably much more aware of this than Slash was. Axl had always wanted for GN'R to be a band that could release different

  34. ARGENTINA 1993 The show starts with an epic performance of Nightrain. While at the start of the Saskatoon 93 show (just a couple months earlier) Axl seemed less motivated than in previous shows probably because of the constant touring, here he is full of energy and in high spirits from the start probably because it's the last show of an endless tour. In fact Axl seems happy through the show, unlike other shows of this tour from 1992 onwards where he looks serious and even bored in between songs. It's the Skin N' Bones tour, Axl finally realized that in the age of grunge having backing sin

  39. Thanks, although I don't trust the source (and other so called "insiders") at all, especially when it comes down to the reunion and NITL era - hadn't the "information" that Slash and Duff recorded Atlas Shrugged in 2016 come from the same source? Anyway, I don't know if Axl hates Matt so much - I don't think he does, because otherwise Matt wouldn't have been offered a guest spot under the same conditions as Steven . But, seeing how much he appreciates loyalty and wants to reciprocate, it's a logical assessment that he would prefer "his guy" (Frank and or Brain) over Matt.
