  1. People need to stop worrying about Frank’s drumming and worrying about Axl’s singing. No matter how good or bad Frank plays, it means nothing if Axl is singing like crap

  3. The fact they used Covid as an excuse to not release music, while hundreds of other high-profile artists had no issue with new album releases, virtual concerts and other fan interaction events, tells you just how motivated GNR is to do anything beyond touring the same music for years. It's a depressing time to be a Guns N' Roses fan.

  5. I've met the entire 2009-2014 lineup, most multiple times. Various situations, some at aftershow parties, some by chance, some at solo shows. I agree with the sentiments that it's not super likely to meet them nowadays unless it's by chance due to the size of the venues. I'm not sure how much they're even up for meeting people outside the hotels as I haven't heard much chatter about that in recent years. As for what they were all like...Bumble is my favorite, for sure. He's always been super outgoing and personable, always down to chat as long as you are. There was a period where

  6. "With Guns it's all very secretive (...) AC/DC still maintains that, the Stones still maintain that" The difference is, those two bands maintain secretive, while releasing new music from time to time. Guns maintain secretive because they don't release anything at all.

  7. All part of Post Malone's New Year Eve stream. They absolutely nailed it. Chad is killing the drums. And Slash... he's playing and sounds better here than since he rejoined Guns. Enjoy! 2:17:17

  9. 20 years ago... Rock in Rio 3, the day I met Axl, and I will never forget it. Perhaps one of the best moments in my life, and I would be able to write a novel about it, but some things are better just in our memories, I guess. On the other hand, it's been exactly 20 years, and there is not a single day that I won't think about it. Some people may say I should let go, but it kind of changed my life, in terms of how to believe in myself. So for once, let me try this: Rio de Janeiro, January 13 2001 - Intercontinental Hotel My room wasn't ready when I checked in, and I had to han

  11. They've spent the year reinforcing the idea that they're lazy, tone deaf and unprofessional. Comparing GNR to real artists is just depressing.

  12. Foo Fighters are releasing their 10th studio album on Feb. 5. It was originally slated for 2020 to coincide with their 25th anniversary, but it was delayed due to the pandemic. Dave Grohl had this to say: “So, six or seven months went by, and I’m, like: ‘We make this music for people to hear. We don’t just make it so that we can go hit the road. We write these songs so people can enjoy them and sing along, whether it’s in their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing around, singing the choruses. So, I was, like, right now, more than ever, people

  13. Interview from last year. (28:14 minute mark) Sean Beavan: [...] I think I was doing Guns N’ Roses at the time, or something [...] Warren Huart (interviewer): Was this the never-ending Guns N’ Roses record? Sean Beavan: Yes! The never-ending Guns N’ Roses record. I did that for... two years or something like that? And it’s funny, because I was on it from ’98 to 2000, I think, and the vocal tracks on it are all the ones I did. Like, it was pretty crazy- Warren: Huart: Did he credit you? Sean Beavan: Oh, he was unbelievably wonderful. Warren Hu

  14. He probably backed himself into a corner on that one... Fernando: "Hey Axl, which shows do you think we should use for these youtube Select videos?" Axl: "I don't care. You told me the 2019 shows were the best I've ever sounded, just use some of those." Fernando: "Uh.... sure thing, boss!" and then they both walk away thinking the other is a complete idiot.

Instant fan..she has been listening to the song non stop... Thinking about introducing her to another GNR song.... stay safe everyone...

  18. The Slash relapsing stuff was made up by someone over the gunsnfnroses forum. There’s still no evidence of those stories. You guys have to be careful with what you say, because people read this forum and then shit like this gets to Facebook/Instagram and then it might get to Slash himself. Not cool.

  20. You’re making an album with Myles (Kennedy) and the Conspirators, right? Slash: We did a week of initial pre-production and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year. I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that Duff (McKagan) and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around. When do you think we’ll hear some of this music? Slash: I would like to think tha

  22. Not really wishing to start a Covid debate but.....there's every reason to cancel a few rock shows if it protects the vulnerable in society. I'll happily stay indoors for a few more months if it means protecting even one person from this shit. i won't be 'blaming China' for it either. I might point a finger or two at the ABYSMAL handling of all this by the government in my country and a certain other country, who have equally dire leadership! Fortunately though, it's not like the world are clamouring for another leg for the latest leg of the never ending NITL tour. Sorry.....

  24. I was thinking how 2020 has impacted on the way I view GNR, and was wondering how others felt. It's obviously been an awful year for most of us. Like many out there I've lost my work and relatives, and there hasn't been too many highlights. I'm sure we all have had similarly shitty years, one way or the other. I know it's sort of ridiculous to place so much on a band....but just one or two pleasant things from the band I feel most passionate about would have gone so far this year. They'd have brought a disproportionate amount of cheer and enjoyment. That the band did nothing

  25. Now I think about it, I also shortly met frank on the streets of paris. The person I was walking around with chitchatted a bit with him but I didn't really know what to say to him and probably didn't care too much. He was there with his daughter and seemed like a sweet fellow. Probably too nice for a rock band like that. Met fernando quickly in Vegas 2016. Very uninspiring conversation. Never cared for him too much but grown to hate him the last cpl years for his behaviour. One of my greatest experience came from meeting beta though. Me and a bunch of other nerds were waiting for Axl

  26. Unheard songs with vocals from 1999-2004. Zodiac and Soul Monster are the most interesting instrumentals so I guess those are the 2 I'd want the most. As far as live stuff, Pantages Theatre 1991 pro-shot and The Joint NYE 2001 pro-shot.

  27. I think it would be useful to distinguish economic liberalism and political liberalism. A lot of the confusion in regards to the way the term is used in the context of today in U.S. and European politics stems from the conflation of the two. Classical economic liberalism is Adam Smith and laissez-faire. Classical political liberalism is about individual and civil rights, political freedom, universal vote and parliamentary democracy. Although both were a product of the same historical frame, they haven't fully coexisted, as, even though both give prominence to private property as the mos

  28. The 2020 soundcheck intro to Hardschool immediately sounds like Guns N' Roses. It has a killer bass open (as far as we can tell by the footage) and some nice new guitar work by Slash. I think Axl's vocals were weak, but it was a soundcheck, so he obviously wasn't trying too hard.

  31. Bumblefoot may or may not have been socially-reluctant within the band, but for years, he was the most amiable member towards fans. He was always willing to chat with people on or offline, and he was a great musician to boot. Fuck whoever has shit to say about him.

So my favorite band is releasing footage from a concert I went to on my birthday. And here I thought this year was gonna be lame due to the pandemic lol. Thanks GNR, I wonder if they saw me request SOYL from this show on FB.

  40. I'll bite- I'll keep this all positive: the first time I heard GN'R was an incredible moment. I grew up listening to a very wide variety of music but when I heard AFD in 1987, it was somehow like nothing I'd ever heard. The first time I saw them in 91, I was certain nothing could live up to what I'd built up in my head but Holy shit, they lived up to it. There was just a magic in the air that didn't happen at other shows I'd seen up to and including that year. GN'R is absolutely not the greatest band in the world and I've never thought that BUT there was a very long time where

  43. I'm sure I'll catch some heat for this but here we go: I still don't get the Frank hate. I mean for nostalgic purposes I totally get, my self included, why someone would prefer Adler or Matt but stating that Frank is a bad drummer is just ignorant and stupid in my opinion. There's no question that he plays the songs a bit different than previous drummers but so did Matt when he joined. I also get that some people may not like his style but I sometimes wonder how much of that is down to his actual drumming or the fact that he isn't named Steven Adler or Matt Sorum. Do I regard him as

  45. I should admit that the only actual reason why I still care and come here on a daily basis has just two words: Team Brazil. Never in my life have I seen such cool and inspiring professional business. I wish they managed Slash’s and Duff’s personal matters as well. In fact, Joe Biden should give them a call. I think that would benefit everyone. Like, totally.
