  1. No. I did not. It's what you tried to put in my mouth. But that is the modus operandi on this forum. Missunderstanding and twisting shit and then getting offended.
  2. And again you're choosing to totally misappropriate and misunderstand what I said. Yes. Working your ass off in a low paying job will get you nowhere (it might prevent you though from becoming a criminal). What I meant was, work your ass off in getting a job that will put you through your education/put you in a position to get an education. An education that will put you in a position to get a good job and once you have that job, work your ass off to climb up the ladder. I know that is not easy, but it's not unheard of. There are people who actually do that. So spare me the "poor me" paragraph
  3. We're talking about the USA here. Not some unnamed poor countries. And why can't they "choose" to do something that gets them out? Who is forbidding them? Who is holding them back? Of course you can "choose" to something that gets you out. Whether they succeed is a different Story and the poorer they are, the harder it is, but to say they "can't" and they can't even try seems ridiculous to me.
  4. Again. That is not what I said. Like it was pointed out, you can find black americans in all professions. In all social classes. Black americans are free to do whatever profession they choose. So the fact that so many are poor can not be down only to racism. If that was the case, why are there also so many poor white people?
  5. Not what I said, but yes, staying in poverty is (in part). If you're willing to work your ass off, you're bound to make some money eventually, no? I was more referring to the staying in the ghetto. When you have the choice to work your ass off, to get an education, to get a good job and and get out of the ghetto, but instead join the local gang, sell and do drugs and become a criminal (who kills black and/or white People), then that's laziness. And lack of morals. Going the "easy" way (which in fact is not really easy, but may seem easy for the dumb).
  6. Yes. That indeed makes you wonder. I guess, in part it's down to circumstance. But in part it's also down to choice e.g. not even trying to get out of the ghetto, because "It's oh so hard and everyone is against me.".
  7. LOL at this dude... the way he stands there, with the fucking bible in his hand. Couldn't make that shit up.
  8. Something to get you by? Yes. Sure. But not everything is made up/ruins your health. Some of the things that get you by are real and tangible.
  9. Yeah. That's it. A crutch. Some take drugs to get by, others have religion. Both a tool to make you feel better. Both BS to me.
  10. Gay man's champagne. At least in german speaking countries. Part of a comedian's act.
  11. BS. If they do a BR release, it should be one full gig from one city. Otherwise they shouldn't even bother with it.
  12. When I fly across an ocean and pay a shitload of money, I want to see Axl the rockstar and not Axl the sad accountant. And I can't help it and I do not feel sorry for it, but that look sucked and I'm not gonna pay money to see Axl like that. Concerts are also a visual thing. I was on the fence and that tipped me over/knocked me right back. I did not want to see him like that.
  13. Yeah. When I saw that, any consideration I had until that time of going to see them (in '19) went out of the window. Totally.
  14. Do you know that in some countries, when they cancel, they still keep your money? They give you a coupon, which is valid until December 31, 2021 and if you haven't used it by then, you get your money back. Total bollocks. I rather they postpone the shows and keep my money than they cancel and misuse me as a bank and keep my money either way.
  15. In 1990: 1. Cher - Heart of Stone 2. Queen - Live Magic 3. Don't remember… took a while until I bought another one.
  16. I guess many of these artist types would be there or similar, if they wouldn't have found a profession that pays well, despite their shortcomings and lets them get away with it.
  17. But why spare the effort when they make millions with doing none of that?? Whenever he wants, he goes on tour, does his thing and gets millions. Case closed. Everything you suggest is extra work and decisions someone has to do and make. And clearly, Axl doesn't care about any of that. And there you have your answer: He doesn't care about anything but concerts.
  18. Why would he not do it that way? For him it works. They are raking in the millions. Everything else don't matter to him. Everything else would mean more effort and stuff he has to deal with.
  19. Sammy Hagar said that Live Nation/Ticketmaster will inform soon.
  20. Oh, well. Is it professional to talk about unlaid eggs? Probably not. But if he would say nothing, what would we have to bitch About? And we always want to know shit. So, I don't know. Maybe he spoke about it too early, but I don't want to believe he is just full of shit, so maybe we really just have to be a Little more patient with those video things to happen. That at least seems an easier task than to release new music. One that doesn't involve Axl's Input.
  21. To be fair though, at least what he says in term of the copyright strikes makes sense and if he is speaking the truth and following up on seeing to it that those strikes get removed, kudos to him. Edit: Also the fact that he mentions the Troubadour recording, the financial issues they had with the Company that recorded it and that they are still Looking into what can be done with the material, also in conjunction to help the Troubadour, is pretty cool. Of course, on the assumption he's not full of shit and really is following up on it.
  22. Well, you can be real and professional all you want. That won't help you when you have to deal with Axl Rose. There were plenty of real and professional managers along the way and not many things were made to happen. But yeah, at least you would know not to promise things you, deep down in your heart, know you can't promise. But that's why he never confirmed it was him on Reddit. He wanted to say there is an album coming, but he wanted to not bite him in the ass, if it isn't.
  23. No one does "make" Axl do anything, except Axl (and even he has a hard time convincing him to do something). Fernando knows that. That's why he's the manager. Others didn't. That's why they are Ex-managers.
  24. He is right in that regard. Absolutely no one wants a fucking remix album with songs even further ruined, of an album, no one cared about in the first place, of a line up of GNR long gone, which never was considered to be GNR by anyone anyway. It would be the biggest joke to release that in the 4th year of the Axl/Slash/Duff reunion.
