  1. Imagine Donald Trump telling you how great the November Rain video is. Then he plays the video for you on his phone. And you just sit there silently for 9 minutes, while Trump sits on the other side of the desk like....

  6. 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

  8. Slash and Duff missed their window to execute some poetic justice and have Axl sign over the rights to his own name!

  9. These 'fans' think they're doing it for Axl/TB, real fans love the stuff that Gibbo, Frans and others put out. The GNR Selects does more damage to the band than anything the fans have posted.

  11. They played a few shows prior, but 5 years ago today was the official kick off to the Not In This Lifetime Tour. I'd already seen the show in Las Vegas but I was so stoked the official tour kick off was in Detroit. I threw on all day party at my house to celebrate the occasion. A lot of friends and family came by but a lot of forum friends came by too. @downzy, @KURT19, wagszilla and others were there but my favorite memory was @Powerage5and I making sure we had our first drinks by 9am. Who else from the forum came by? There were a LOT of people in and out all day, plus

  12. It's been a while, everyone. Hope you're all keeping safe. I've been keeping myself occupied throughout the pandemic and amongst other things, I completed a little pet project of mine that I thought I'd share. For years, everybody has talked about a GNR litho coffee table book and how awesome it'd be if they released one. Sadly, it feels like it's just not on the cards. Perhaps it's a little too niche, perhaps it's just a lot of work for minimal profit. There's only so many manhours available and it's best to spend that one profitable merchandise, right? I don't really blame them. A lot

  13. 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

  14. None of the above. Rework the setlist to feature songs that Axl can sound good singing, maybe actually releases new music so Axl has stuff to sing with his current range, and rework some existing songs for his current voice. And while they're at it, tell Axl there's no shame in tuning down.

  15. Finally, some new music from the top-hatted, Les Paul-wielding Rock God himself.... and Slash is on it too! It's both funny and sad that basically every member of the band, past and present, has managed to release music recently.

  17. Grew up in a rural area. No one ever got shot or killed. The reason? Guns aren't available in my country. The 'I've got to have a gun because other people might have a gun' situation is absolutely bonkers to pretty much everyone that lives outside the USA.

  21. 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 ?

  22. Just now saw this thread: I've never spoken on behalf of Ron, but I do want to put everyone at ease. He is just fine. I assume he'll be making a public statement soon, so I'll wait to see if he does to share more info but I assure you, he is just fine

  26. Nah. Axl's complete inability to release new music is what killed GN'R. The pandemic only put the brand on hold for a bit. They'll get back to going through the motions and overcharging for shows as soon as Covid is over.

  28. So I’m pretty new to this forum and enjoyed reading through some of these threads. They are a welcomed distraction from slugging it out constantly it seems. Long story short, I lost my dad recently and have been on a huge nostalgia trip recently. Been revisiting my youth by cracking out an old games console and listening to GNR in the background, reading old mags and watched an Izzy film (which was pretty cool) I’ve fallen back in love with this band and kind of connected with me again (I think) Anyway, I’ve been reading about Gilby and I just think it was pretty cool that he jumped in

  30. 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

  32. 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.

  34. We're in the afternoon on the 6th of February in the UK, so thought it was time to make a thread to wish ginger bollocks a very happy birthday. If you're reading, I wish you nothing but the best - health, happiness and Hardschool to be released to the fans. God bless, Uncle Ax. Thanks for the music. We need more of it though and I know you're sat on a goldmine.

  35. - Considered for replacing Izzy in 1991, but didn't audition: Dave Navarro, Marc Ford, Mick Cocks (Rose Tattoo), Mike Staggs (Axl's friend and bandmate in Indiana who played additional guitar on Ain't It Fun) - Gilby, 1991-1994, toured and played on the Spaghetti Incident. - Paul Huge/Tobias: 1994-1997 undefined official status - played on Sympathy for the Devil. 1997-2002: member, played on CD and at four shows. - Zakk Wylde: Did tryout sessions with the whole band in January 1995. Probably stayed on hold for a few months until he got a fax (from Slash) that he wasn't needed.

  38. 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.

  39. There will be an all new set list. By all new I mean Double Talkin Jive will be dropped and Think About You will be added. Some black and white pics will be posted on Instagram. With the caption 'black n f' n white'. The tour will be followed by a new European leg where another all new set list will be added featuring 1 new cover.

  40. I have been watching clips of Axl on Youtube since 86 until recent times, reading stuff on forums over this period and I feel exhausted! He has been through so much in his profesional and personal life, getting back on that stage after each disaster and downfall and giving it his all. On top of this is the torrent of criticism about everything from hair, body, clothes, voice, lifestyle, friends...there is love also but it is clouded with 'constructive' criticism. The others in the band have not had half the coverage or criticism or do they have the complicated mental health of Axl which c

  41. He did this interview a couple of weeks ago (I don't think it's been posted here) and said some interesting things. I think it's the first time he talked so openly about this. He also talked about working with Slash. I believe you're the only person who survived both the Axl-only version of GN'R with Buckethead and Brain [Mantia, drums] and Tommy, but then also played in the proper GN'R where you're the only new guy among the all-original band. Can you compare the experience? "No, you can't. [Laughs] I mean, literally, you can't; it's two completely different things - compl
