  1. same here, I love it and Axl sounds brilliant on it. In fact, I wish he would just do more straight forward rock songs because he kills it! Stop doing multi-layered complicated songs with strings, French horns etc... and strip it back raw. Nothing substitutes for plain old good songwriting.
  2. Why is that? We have just had hundreds of tennis players from all around the world enter Australia into Melbourne to play the Australian open. If sport can do it then so too can international bands one would think?
  3. 😄 I’m going to make a banner and take it to my GnR shows this November - “thanks to Rick he’s better than the old one (MSL)”
  4. Sitting in a Chinese Stew, or shitting in a Chinese Stew? 😁
  5. This. There are so many hopeful & delusional souls here, it’s not funny...
  6. This is a great idea and the most sensible thing for the GnR brand moving forward. The Lebeis family have actually been very, very good at organising world tours and the logistics of such a huge undertaking, so credit where it’s due. But they have no idea about PR and marketing & promotion so this is an area that has hurt GnR due to it being largely ignored. Having said that, they still sell millions of tickets so obviously it’s not hurting them too much financially!
  7. That is a cool insight, I remember years ago someone from inside the recording parts of things said Axl did a lot in just a few takes. Amazing if true! Thanks for posting Blackstar.
  8. Good points, yes CD was eventually released. I remember 20 years ago thinking it will never happen. But it did, however that was 12 years ago. If GnR released an album in 2 years then I would not consider the band dead. So to me its all about creating music and releasing it. Otherwise they are currently just performers. I agree that Axl wouldn't even contemplate discussing a new album unless it was actually in the final stages of being released as he just looked silly in the past and copped it from many people in the industry to the point of becoming a global joke. And that would go fo
  9. 😁 Nice try and in some way we can appreciate your positivity. To be honest with you, it really is all on us that we are the delusional fools that expected more over the years. We know the deal but yet stupidly hope for more. Axl and Guns n’ Roses, are performers now, not artists any more and that is the difficult concept we struggle with. Like RUSSTCB alluded to in his post above, you’d be better off enjoying other bands and accepting what was incredible in the past, but is dead now.
  10. Met Dizzy, DJ and Richard a few times and they were friendly but not overly enthused. Met Frank a few times and he is genuinely lovely, as was Ron. Ron is an amazing bloke that actually goes the extra mile to make a fan feel welcome and happy! Met Steven a couple of times and he is wonderful to meet. Friendly and sincere in his willingness to meet with fans. Met Duff and he was friendly and cool, just said a quick hi as his bodyguard was with him. Met Slash at an afterparty and had a good long chat with him and he was really lovely and engaging. Funny bugger too, my mate was g
  11. Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you have a lovely time with family and/or friends, and a safe and happy new year 🥳
  12. Forgot about that. I had the Metallica one for my two kids when they were babies. And here we are complaining that GnR have not put out many albums over the last few decades. They should really re-release the GnR Rock a ByBaby album with a Silkworms remix and of course the brand new music of Shadow of Your Love on it. That would keep us happy until the Chinese Democracy follow-up is released...
  13. I know right. No wonder TB cannot say the ‘No’ word to Axl or he would call them Stormtroopers of hell or something dramatic! just keep saying ‘yes’ TB 🤣
  14. I'd like to see him open up his own record label and help cultivate and foster new rock talent. Try to revive the genre and get some good young bands up and running. I think his incredible knowledge of music, bands and music history, and his passion would be awesome in a mentoring role.
  15. Yeah I’ve heard that here in Australia on the radio. All new show. I’m not reading too much into it 😔
  16. Ah I get it! The new album is gonna be called ‘Guns n’ Rosa Parks!’ ... that’s better than the Red Panda title 🤟🏼
  17. Me too, I got it on vinyl. If you spin it backwards it says “soon” over and over again...
  18. It’s ‘itchy crotch’ day here in Australia, a very sad and sombre day to empathise with all those with thrush, so yeah it would be a bit insensitive for Guns to release their long awaited follow up to Chinese Democracy on this very special day on the Aussie calendar. Good on them for respecting significant global days.
  19. I’m going to both. I live in Brisbane. I doubt the Gold Coast will sell out, although they may be thinking they will attract people as far away as deep down in Northern NSW. Hopefully they get a decent crowd, weird that it’s first show and Brisbane doesn’t follow straight after.
