  1. Not only did they delete them, but the endorserd the people behind the takedown. All while lying about it. Great way to treat your fans.
  2. So you agree that the majority of fans tried to be supportive of TB. Since we agree on that, I'm still curious how that justifies TBs open disdain for GN'R fans.
  3. I remember things quite differently. Many, many forum members were either indifferent to, or outright supportive of the Lebeis family for years. Once they (Beta, Fernando etc) started insulting the fan base it when the forum members took offense.
  4. Wait. Are you saying TBs attitude towards the fans is reactionary? Because I remember a far different story. I've seen members of this forum be nothing but supportive of GN'R & TB for years. It's the other way around, truth be told. TB are the ones who started with the name calling, which is what caused the fans on message boards to be offended.
  5. It would have been great if everyone had worn masks and been vaccinated the first time. Since many didn't, here we are having to encourage those things again.
  6. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/ozzy-osbourne-no-more-tears-reissue-1204195/ Bonus digital tracks and a vinyl reissue for those wanting it.
  7. Right, I agree with that. I'm not saying Axl isn't to blame. Axl seems to be the only person who always says Axl isn't to blame lol
  8. Right, but the situation remains the same: "keep my family on the payroll, or we'll abandon you" If cashing in on nostalgia, then having continual and steady decline of interest from your die hard fans, casual fans and the music world is your idea of success, then yes, he's been very successful.
  9. If he was remotely concerned with being a successful artist, he'd consider getting rid of TB and hiring real management. He can't though, because Beta emotionally blackmailed him in front of the whole world. "A true friend is not on your payroll" -Prince Side note, here's a list of some people who view Axl/GN'R as an unsuccessful artist: -inconsequential people on some message board (also known as the only people who actually still care if Axl is successful) -the rock music press -music press in general -casual fans (as evidenced by the dismal ticket sales
  10. No, he can't. Not since Beta emotionally blackmailed him in front of the entire world.
  11. I assume you're referring to a different band than GN'R when you say "selling out stadiums". The current GN'R tour had shows canceled, some venues downgraded, heavily discounted tickets and still isn't coming anywhere near selling out.
  12. No, mandatory vaccinations would not go over well with the general public.
  13. I'm a BIG lyric guy. Lyrics matter more to me than almost anything else in songs. That's why I've been a long time defender of CD as a whole when people say the whole album is about GN'R and/or Stephanie. I'm sure Axl has a lot more to think about than just those two subjects. However, the one song in particular (The Blues) is absolutely about Slash specifically, IMO.
  14. Nah, I've never thought Sorry was about Slash. However, I have been getting my head caved in for 20 years for thinking (read: knowing) The Blues is about him.
  15. I've never thought Sorry was about Slash myself. I think that's why Sorry gets played and not The Blues
  16. Oh I know, I'm just hoping a lot of companies make it mandatory.
  17. WHOA. I'm very happy to others actually agreeing with this! I wasn't kidding, I generally take a yearly beating for even suggesting it, but I've been doing so since like 2002 lol
  18. I'm very interested in seeing if/when mandatory vaccinations become a thing in the US. I'd love to just get on with our lives but we can't because a bunch of Facebook/YouTube "scientists" somehow have control over idiots.
  19. Saw someone mention GN'R doing VH covers. A couple of things come to mind: 1) please, please, please no more covers 2) Wolfgang himself has made it crystal clear that he won't be covering any Van Halen material, so I doubt he'd be interested in joining GN'R for it
  20. Time for my yearly beating on this topic, but personally I don't think they'll ever do The Blues with Slash in the band because I think it's 100% about him.
  21. I have to assume this post is intended as a joke, but in case it's not: That entire line of thinking was accurate between 1990 and 1991, then it was completely worn out by 1993.
  22. Completely different vibe than the original but I'm totally cool with that. This is the first movie that I've been excited for in a long time.
