  1. Sure, that is not wrong and also my mindset lately, but that still doesn't want me to get ripped of by GNR and their hanger ons. I intensly dislike getting ripped of. And these prices are a rip off.
  2. How much are Dublin tix? Does anyone with Nightrain know?
  3. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. In this case, they might.
  4. Yeah. Axl has none of that. He lives in his own bubble, far removed from the "real world", unlike Slash and Duff (well, as far as a rockstar can get into the real world). Also Axl has always been the one who was doing things the way that got him criticised the most, unlike Slash and Duff.
  5. Well, critizing everything he does, which is what we are doing here, is giving someone shit, isn't it? I'm sure though, in their way, TB "does love and care" for Axl. They just take it overboard to the point of viewing everyone else as the enemy and not giving a damn about anyone else.
  6. What? That it's human nature or that it's good that the crazy has been taken out of Axl and he seems more content/less angry and is more reliable when it comes to stuff like getting on stage in time? But you probably also wouldn't want to be around people who give you shit all the time and know everything better.
  7. Hmm. Well. Isn't that human nature? Who wants to be criticised all the time for every move you make? Especially people like Axl, Elvis, Michael and so on, who get criticised in the media daily, probably don't want that in their private lives too... and since most people they associate with are on their payroll another human nature kicks in, which makes sure that those people won't risk saying or doing anything that could get them off that payroll. Oh, well. Some fires need to be extinguished. I don't see that as a bad thing.
  8. Go to festivals. A lot cheaper and not directly putting money in their pockets.
  9. Again. So you want to tell me there is no override, nothing that a person over at Google or Facebook can do to prevent that from happening and really any lunatic has the free reign to disrupt the business of any band they choose.
  10. If that really would be the case, who's to stop any lunatic to totallly disrupt any bands business on any given platform? If I would be crazy enough, I could make it my life's mission that band x doesn't make another cent through Youtube, without anyone able to stop me??? Is that what you want to say? They will have to care if the rightsholder has an issue with how their copyrighted material is handled on their platform. GNR is not just anyone. It's a band that just made 500+ mio. $. I'm sure they do have some pull and weight behind their demands.
  11. Why not?? As legal rights holder they have the ability to inform Google and Facebook, about who has the authority to claim copyright on their behalf in relation to their copyrighted material. I refuse to believe that some random fan/third party can cause this copyright stir up without the actual copyright holder having a way to put an end to that. And even if that were the case, non of you have been informed that they even tried to stop it, but failed.
  12. So they agree with it and support it, which is my point.
  13. Then why don't they stop it?? If none of them is behind it/supporting it, then it should be a matter of a couple of calls to put an end to that. But the fact that they don't, but also lump people who merely talk about the leaks into the same category speaks a clear language. They want total control about what is out there and what is talked about.
  14. The band stays idly by and does nothing. So yes, it is the fault of the band.
  15. My god man, get your head out of your ass. Nobody is begrudging the band to make money. It's only problematic, when that becomes the only/major directive and everything else be damned..
  16. Or more like GNR seems to be at the forefront of being a real piece of shit as rock band as they let it all happen. They are the ones who clearly want this to happen (and most likely are behind all of it) or otherwise they would do everything in their power to shut those fuckers down, which they easily could by identifying to those outlets who has the power to make copyright claims on their behalf.
  17. Management as in Fernando?? So in other words, he thinks that a unrelated person discussing a recent bank robbery is as bad as the person who actually committed the bank robbery? A unrelated person discussing a recent murder is as bad as the person who committed the murder and will face the same legal punishment? What a douche. And in more other words, it is clearly Guns N' Roses, who is behind and appreciates all take downs, even though they don't have the balls to publicly state that on all of their web presences.
  18. Yeah. And nobody says "ban tall people, because they are blocking shorter people's view". They really don't give a shit that they are blocking anybody's view, but get all mad when someone blocks their view.
  19. Uhm, well. Actually they do. Out of the 20.000 to 50.000 people attending an arena/stadium gig only a couple 100, maybe a couple thousands (if you extend that term to beyond people bitching on message boards) are hardcore fans.
  20. Who says that people recording are not paying attention to the performance?? They record it for christ sake. It's a myth to believe that they are not paying attention. I'd wager to say that they pay more attention as the ones not recording, as they watch it back as soon as they get home.
  21. Unless these cunts stop charging 300 $ pro ticket they should just shut the fuck up and be honored that people think their performances are worth recording.
  22. Oh well, liken it to people being taller than you and get on with it. It's not like there wouldn't be raised arms or things blocking your view without cellphones/cameras.
