  1. There is absolutely zero chance that anything will even come close to AFD. Which I think is the core problem here. Axl tried to ‘bury’ Appettite, but it can’t ever be done... If he enjoys touring, then tour. If putting out music is too hard for him, which it appears to be, then don’t release any. But just don’t string along your fans who have supported you for 30 - 40 years by speculating that new music is around the corner (through the suggestions of other band members) if it isn’t really true.
  2. I thought Axl looked and sounded fantastic. The band were great. You’re a serious nit-picking wanker if you have to look for the bad in this latest release. Just enjoy one of the all-time great rock voices and rock guitarist as they are still going and giving their performances for all to see.
  3. Oh cool, if that is true about Buckethead then that’s pretty damn good money! I always find it pitiful and rude when musicians ask for donations for their own personal life. Like fuck off, be wise with your money or suck it up like the rest of us 😄 It certainly is cut throat and I remember seeing a music doco on Netflix about hired guns and how the job can be gone all of a sudden, like Pitman for instance. 4Tus is a smart dude, I’m sure he is wise and mature enough too, so yeah probably just shedding gear he no longer uses.
  4. Interesting. I’ve always wondered how much Axl pays his staff like Richard. What do you all think? To be on contract with GnR and obviously they would stipulate that GnR is the priority with any side-interests not to conflict with plans, how much for a hired muso to take that gig? I would have a guess around $100 00 - $150 000 per year with all expenses paid touring. What do you all reckon?
  5. Aussie here too, but I knew it was too good to be true though that there was actual Guns N’ Roses news.
  6. This. This. 😄 Actually, “ new music or GTFO “ should be the correct answer to any question now. Q/ What do you think of having two keyboardists in the band? A/ new music or GTFO Q/ Do you think Steven Adler should be back in the band? A/ new music or GTFO Q/ What song do you think they should open with when touring begins again? A/ new music or GTFO Q/ What do you think the title of their next children’s story book should be? A/ new music or GTFO
  7. What about My World? Surely that has hit the Billion plays by now...
  8. Prince William? Watch his Oprah interview, he tells all, but still won’t release Royal Democracy 2. Bastard.
  9. Yep, his feet actually fell off with frostbite.
  10. Oh c’mon El Chapo, don’t be so harsh. They are just trying to work out how to release an album. Didn’t you know that no other band across the entire world has released an album this past 12 months.
  11. Probably, hopefully the vaccine roll-out will speed things up a bit so that the US can start to plan concerts for early 2022. I went to the show for Midnight Oil last night. It was an outdoor venue of approximately 10 000 people. It’s was a seating plan to make it ‘safe’ but really people were up dancing, drunk, and behaving like any other show pre-COVID. It was a great night and so good to see a big concert again with that electric atmosphere that a big crowd and a fantastic band can only provide!
  12. I don’t give a shit what all the do-gooders say, this song is up there with GnR’s greatest. The attitude - right. Brutal honesty from an artist at the height of his mega-talented output. I must say though that I’ve never heard of the ‘phlegmy’ description before 😄 Anyway, I’m gonna say Nightrain, Patience and Better.
  13. Yeah good points above. With Australia they can only really tie in New Zealand on the tour with some reasonable certainty. In term of the financial impact on the band themselves, having wankers like me fork out $500 a ticket is really just putting the financial burden on the consumer, and more than likely the promoter absorbs the risk.So the band should be fine.
  14. Yeah I’m surprised too. On Sunday night I’m going to see Midnight Oil play here at an outdoor venue that can hold around 10 000 people so the domestic market here in Australia is starting to ramp up a bit. But I’m surprised that no overseas bands are coming here sooner to get back into touring and making money.
  15. Nope, I’ve been following this band for 30 years and rule no.1: Nothing is ever confirmed in the world of Gn’fn’R unless it is released, in the shops, and in your possession 😁
