  1. The last run of larger-than-life rock bands was the emo run of the mid-late 2000s. Even that wasn't on the same level as the 1970s-1990s, but you see super-seismic fandom for some of those bands like The Killers, MCR, Fallout Boy, Panic! at the Disco, etc. Especially the first three.
  2. "Have you given up on the band?" is a loaded question. Have I stopped being a fan? No. I'm still a general fan who generally knows what's going on. I still know where everything stands, whether an album is coming out, around half of the rumored song titles, etc., etc. I have a general sense of the setlist used for the past four years and a general sense of any upcoming tour dates.

I care just enough to visit this website once a week, maybe once every two weeks, a
  3. I think the ultimate highlight was "We Are the Champions" with everyone on stage (including Axl, Slash, and Duff). It's just one of those magical moments in music history where you didn't mind them repeating the chorus 10 times. They could've gone 100 times consecutively on the chorus and you'd still get teared up. I'd argue this is up there in the greatest moments in music history. Liza (and the crowd) kills it, too. 'Thanks Freddie! We just wanted to let you know we were thinking about you! Stay safe!" *sobs*
  4. No, or you should classify every singer as a tortured genius because they fit the description you outlined. All singers have the goal of giving voice to the/a human condition. That's the whole point of music. Axl was a really great rock singer who had a destructive singing style that, unsurprisingly, caught up to him as he aged. However, "Bohemian Rhapsody" WAS special. It was the peak moment of his career. Everything about it perfectly encompassed who Axl Rose was during the late 80s and early 90s, and what he meant to/how he should be remembered for rock 'n' roll: lou
  5. The best part of this interview, for me personally, is the story about "Wish You Were Here."
  6. This may have been mentioned earlier, but Cornell has so many awesome covers. His "Nothing Compares 2 U" Prince cover is ridiculous.
