GOD (6/10)



  1. I stopped being active here a decade ago, I kinda lurk in the shadows, don’t really bother too much anymore. Tried to get back into GNR again with mixed results. Finally getting The General kinda put closure on it for me. Hope you’re doing well. I’m traveling between NYC and SoFlo these days back and forth. If you’re around drop me a line I’ll buy you a drink…or two…
  2. There must have been an important reason why, I don’t recall the entire situation but I do remember I went to every show and ended up with extra tickets. I think I bought some and got some from my company at the time. At any rate, I don’t know why you would carry a grudge for so many years. If you feel slighted by my behavior back then, I do apologize.
  3. I think there are patterns of behavior that Fernando has displayed throughout that shows manipulative tendencies. It makes me feel very uncomfortable about the entire TB situation including Beta. Not that they haven’t grown close and built trust over the years, but that their relationship may have been built on manipulation.
  4. Whomever started the leak chain: “for he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow…. Which nobody can deny.”
  5. Monsters isn’t bad, I’m digging The General a lot more. Overall, I’m pleased. Obviously these mixes are lacking fidelity, but I feel a sense of completion……
  6. They should change it to the BLM Arena or something more in line with their beliefs like the Karl Marx Arena.
  7. I wish we all could be treated so poorly. You’re completely delusional to the point of being so utterly insulting to everyone’s intelligence.
  8. I’m so grateful for the leaks, without them we wouldn’t have CITR(Brian May). I can’t imagine only having the final versions of the CD era songs. I would have a different opinion of GNR, not for the better.
  9. Unfortunately I prefer the leaked version. I like the earlier vocal takes. It seems overly ambitious and too jam packed with unnecessary and needless noise I cannot reconcile. I suppose beggars can’t be choosers at this point.
  10. All there is are breadcrumbs. There is no album, there is nothing coming other than a few tracks that Slosh and Duff worked on from the CD era. And those will be released with great pains….
  11. Prepare for more disappointment come Friday. If it doesn’t show up by then what’s the next goalpost, November?
