  1. @RussTCB, you're absollutely right and maybe here is not my place anymore, but here's the deal: A) I'm not defending Fernando, I'm defending myself and this is something you guys will never understand, because I get it that it is hard to put yourself in someone’s shoes that’s so far away. But by the way some people here are interpreting my post you can see that some of them, which where born in the US, having English as their native tongue, can’t even read or interpret a simple text in English and can’t even tell the difference about racism and xenophobia. I wasn’t talking about racism anyway. B) But when you make fun of a Latino or a Brazilian or a Chinese or a third country country (I'm talking that in general), yep, you are being Xenophobic. C) About sucking all the fun! Where's the fun, Russ? Where’s the fun in bullying, Russ? That’s the best April fools joke this forum ever had? Come on? Where is the fun? There's negative and a negative macho vibe everywhere in this forum! You are a great guy, Russ, the admins are great guys, there's lots of great people over here, I've been here since 2008, met a lot of great people, had fun, had my time! But this is not my place anymore, Russ! I don’t fit in anymore as you can see! And I think I’m glad to, but hey, keep up the good work man! Since I can’t delete my profile, I ask you to ban me from the forum! No hard feelings! THANK YOU, FOR REAL and to all the admins on this forum!
  2. May you have a great life brother! I'm not gonna give one more single word for your to twist it! The world is a horrible place as it is! You should open your window and check it out! My best to you! My best to you all! An I'm sorry if I was misunderstood, it wasn't my intention!
  3. WHAT??? You have just twisted my words in the most evil kind of way, like you didn't pay attention to a word that wrote and I know that I made myself very clear andI wasn't attacking you! My man, I'm done. This wasn's the purpose of this post.
  4. Nah. It wasn't. Merck Mercuriadis destroyed, really destroyed what was left from the band, he helped to undermine Chinese Democracy and nobody talks about him! Stop talking about RACISM! WTF Do you think I'm black? Fernando is black? Beta is black? Did you know we consider ourselves white? We are not talking about colour? Or race? There's no racism involved in this discussion and this is the problem! There are black Brazilians, there are white Brazilians, there are Latino Brazilians, there are Japanese Brazilians, there are Ginger Brazilians. This discussion whas never about race or racism!
  5. Sorry guys, if anybody felt offended or felt that I called anybody a racist, it wasn't my intention. I didn't! I was just trying to point out a fact that sometimes some people goes too hard and to far on Fernando and to me as a Brazilian it is offensive as hell. It could be nice to exercise to be in someone's shoes, But one can only hope.
  6. Even English being your native language your lack of text interpretation is outrageous! I am not, I'm just point out a fact, not a racist fact, since Fernando is white! But maybe, and pay attention, maybe a xenophobic fact, which maybe you don't understand and that you cannot be blammed for! But I'm trying, as a Brazilian, a white Brazilian, to explain, with respect, with manner, in a light way (not so light), but maybe annoyed by the way a lot of you guys talk about another Brazilian in this forum. Maybe I'm right. maybe I'm wrong. I just think you guys bully too much sometimes.
  7. Not racism! But even if you are white (as I am) and you are from Latin America (as I am) you end up being treated differently in the US or in Europe or in Russia and so on... That's not racism... that's life, that's something you guys don't understand and that's something that hurts us as Brazilians (for example).
  8. Please, enlighten me! Educate me! Who's AC/DC Manager? Who's Foo Fighter's Manager? Who's Metallica's Manager? Or U2's? Madonna's? I don't kown, let's seem Beyoncé. Oh, right, it doesn't matter because they own their carrers, they take their decisions ans have the final says in everything, like GNR! But if Fernando was American or European things would be a lot different for a lot of in this forum. I'm not accusing you or anybody, but it is what it seems from my point of view and from things that I have experienced. And just to make it very very clear, racism and xenophobia are two very different things. I'm not talking about racism. Not at all! And for all things considered I am white!
  9. How stupid this can, could, should, would, must be? Why does Fernando gets so much hate over here? Is he really the one to blame for the band's poor choices over the last 28 years? Is he the one to blame for Slash or Duff leaving the band? Is he the one to blame for the lost years? Is he the one to blame for ChiDem to take 13 years to be done? Is he the one to blame for the lack of tour? Is he the one to blame for Axl's voice? Is he the one to blame for Pittman, or Izzy's no show, or Adler once again being treated like shit? Doc McGee, Merck, Doug Gouldstein, Alan Niven and Axl himself did much more damage to the band than Fernando, or Beta! They only have helped Axl. Tell me one real thing that they have done wrong, or is it because they are not like you know, Americans, and "up to the job"?
  10. "Various 92-94 demos (all we know is "This I love" and "Back and forth again" and the 2 unreleased TSI tracks)" I know that they recorder "Beer and Cigarretes" from Hanoi Rocks, which one is the other from TSI?
  11. As a Brazilian and by not having English as my first language this never came to my attention before. But then I just saw the sign and it all made sense!
  12. Have you guys noticed that during the Freddie Mercury Tribute, at the beginning of Paradise City there's a guy holding a "AXL, PISS OFF!" sign, right at the 00:37 mark and Axl screams "SHOVE IT" pointing rigth at the guy at the 00:48 mark? Look at Slash's reaction at the 00:50 mark, like "WTF! Not here, not now!"
  13. Breakdown instead of Estranged? Dust N' Bones instead of Perfect Crime? Double Talkin Jive instead of Dead Horse? I don't know, man. I think the UYI records are a double album anomally that only worked as it is, even with My World and Shotgun Blues or Don't Damm Me.
  14. Marc Canter did, yesterday, what the band didn't do in 10 years! He just released a snippet of the 1987 Whisky a Go Go gig. https://www.instagram.com/marccanter_recklessroad_gnr/
  15. You know, to me there's no bad GNR song, even "My World" I don't think is a bad song, but what bugs me is that IFW does not sound like a GNR song, it would be great as a Axl Rose solo project, but not in a GNR record. But I also do have an unpopular opinion: I love the "Silkworms" version with fast drums.
  16. Why for? They lost momentum for that! They've lost momentum for everything! I hate this band right now! (That's what I'm saying since I heard "If The World" in 2008).
  17. Hahahahahahahaha Don't you dare to put Guns N' Roses and Bolsonaro (our little dick Brazilian wannabe dictator, guys!) in the same sentence. Where are you from, @Ratam?
  18. From what I understand, Chinese Democracy took 13 years to be completed and it was released in 2008! 2008 + 13 = 2021 soooooooooooooooooooo we are waiting for a new record for the same amount of time that we've waited for Chinese Democracy, is that it? This new record will take more time to be done than ChiDem? So it's right to say that maybe and if GNR release a new album this would be (by their ages) their last one? My God! What a waste of talent, money and time,
  19. The only thing that matters to me at this point is: Please, Slash, pay real attention to which songs are you gonna be using in your new SMKC record! Are you sure, really sure, super sure you didn't present any of the songs to Axl and he "didn't fucking like it at first"? We cannot afford 1995's "It's Five O'Clock"-my-song-your-song bullshit all over again. I'm not 18 anymore, I have a weak heart and zero patient to wait for another 20 years! So please, pay attention!
  20. But if the revamped version od the old songs are as near similiar of what they did with Better (the new intro is Killer), I'm fine with it.
  21. 100% right! And Rock albuns don't sell millions anymore, at least for the music industry - nowadays - they don't need to. But then again I understand why Axl doesn't want to release anything! Why bother, people are not gonna buy it, they are going to stream it through Spotify, in less than an hour after its release the entire album will be free for grabs on YouTube, including with Karaoke and cover versions. Also, who would dare to release an album than wouldn't match their previous successes, given that CD was a worse flop than TSI and their GH sold more than both albums combined. They are still selling stadiums through AFD, they are still packing venues, they are still making tons of money from a 30 year old record, Why bother to dilute the legacy or to released a floppier and watered version of VR's "Libertad"? Do I agree? No! Do I understand him? Completly!
