    The band that had that logo in your avatar created phenomenal music - the majority remaining unheard. The gems we got via the locker leaks restored my faith. I'm too long down the road now to stop.

    Don't wanna be a naysayer. I loved 87-93 band, But then I grew such a deep passion for NewGnr '01-'06 band. And then we know what happened to that band. So imo anything from NewGnr era even if released is dead and gone. Worst than that is when you hear all these talks about Slash gonna play over Bucket parts, Duff on Tommy and so on.

    So I'm out really. 

    But to each their own and I'm happy about you and your positive thinking.

    In a perfect world, I’d have the original 5 get back together, write together and record an EP worth of material and then tour indoor shows kept to 2 hours max (I hate stadiums and I hate long shows).

    Asking out of curiosity, what do you think the original 5 could write together?
    'Cause "Daddies" are probably not alive anymore to watch porno and "Rocket Queens" are all having grandchildren by now. LA scene is full of Justin Biebers and K-POP. There's literally no LA scene.

    Imagine Axl writes another song like "turn around bitch I got a use for you". It will look like a shameful accidental youtube upload by a drunk pervert grandpa.

    The fact that he still sings these things live is already awkward! 

    I'm trying not to sound arrogant, but this whole "original 5 get back together" makes no sense to me from whatever aspect I'm thinking.

    This is going to be super vague, so I apologize BUT 

    My favorite piece of unreleased music is actually an acoustic thing that was played in 2007. 

    There's a show from the Japanese leg of the tour (no, I don't remember which show, sorry) where Fortus & Robin start playing this really good acoustic piece right before Patience. The rest of the band joins in and it just sounds great. 

    They played if for maybe a minute? (again, vague, sorry) then Axl says something like "that's really good. We should make a song out of that". Axl has a super sarcastic tone and it's very obvious that it's something that is already a song.

    I would LOVE to hear more about it and eventually hear the whole song one day. 

    If anyone wants to hear what I'm talking about, the most specific thing I can remember is that it was right before Patience in one of the shows in Japan from 2007. Again, sorry for being so vague but I really think more fans should check that out. I've never heard anyone else mention it. 

    Actually this is one is worthy of scrutiny. Gonna look at my archive to see what you're talking about.

    ^ Every time I see stuff like this, I’m always fascinated by this concept where you have tons of friends and contacts in the music industry and yet fail repeatedly to hire a proper manager who doesn’t just want to screw you over. And since that doesn’t work, you go to another extreme, you say "to hell with it, I’ll do it myself" and entrust a bunch of incompetent hacks to run your management and PR...
    I mean, how does this happen ffs? 

    Honestly, it's just the case for Axl 'cause he's a pathetic frontman.

    Tell me why for decades everything goes so normal and smooth for Metallica, ACDC, Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, Rolling Stones, Korn, Dream Theater and tons of other famous bands?

    + their toilet clearners do toilet cleaning and professional managers do managing.

  5. If CD material would come out in 2000-2002 it would shake the rock scene. It could be a defining moment in new era Rock music, at least for its own decade. 

    And people of 2021 would always think of it as an art piece that was way ahead of its time.

     

     

     

    ...Forget about all of that, instead we've got laundry bag + toy truck and son of Axl's toilet cleaner ridiculing passionate fans and trolling us in Reddit.

    Band managers are hired by music groups to handle the business aspects of the music industry. They guide the artists' careers, provide advice and act as a liaison between the band and others in the music business. 

    A band manager works closely with a music group to help make major decisions regarding the creative and business direction of the band. The manager is the person the musicians put in charge of the business side of the industry so that they can focus on making music. Some band managers work for management companies, while others work independently. A manager often works on commission. Some take on more than one client; others work full-time with one band.

    The duties required of a band manager vary greatly depending on the individual needs of the artist. Some managers focus exclusively on a few duties, such as advising the band on creative, business and personal decisions and assisting them in finding engagements. Others take on multiple roles, such as booking agent, promoter and travel arranger. Managers often negotiate recording contracts and help the band members understand their responsibilities.

    Dude be careful with your statements specially when discussing professional careers. managerial positions ( IN ANY FIELD! ) is not that formulated and as per book as written above.

    Since you have provided a checklist, let me provide you with another one regarding MUST-HAVE qualities of a manager and give me one example that either Fernando or Beta are matching with any of the below points: 

    1. They help develop artists' careers

    2. They have a deep and detailed knowledge of an artist's portfolio 

    3. They are well aware of the latest trends, technological advancements and marketing 

    4. They must have broad network of connections within the industry

    5. Work ethic and drive

    6. Creative problem solving and fast decision making

    7. They handle pressure well

    8. They communicate honestly

    9. They are open to new ideas

    10. They are a role model

    11. They are creative minded

    -- 

    Give me only ONE example and I'll shut up.

    With all that's happening in the world... you guys can't selfishly expect anything! 

    True, as fans of a band that's putting out albums every 2 or 3 years, we're very impatient and selfish.

    And yes! COVID is the reason we don't hear anything new from the band. Otherwise in pre-covid time they used to spoil us with new material raining from all over the place.

    On a serious note, Axl is musically impotent and Team Brazil is worst than COVID.
    Team Brazil is a Parasite and nightmare for any professional musician who truely cares about his artistic career.

    Sorry you're right, but that image of Axl transcends 😄

    Listen to Osaka, he was gasping then too. 

    That's true. I don't understand why people are talking about 2010 with such a profound passion about Axl's vocals. 2009-2010 was the beginning of his decay from every aspect including vocals.

    However I have to give credit to the man for his 2010 performances. It was obvious that he still had a determination to prove himself to the world. Gasping was there, but rasp was there too. He was still trying to run like crazy to both sides of the stage. 

    By 2012 that motivation was completely gone and the band was in full circus mode. It got worse and worse from then on.

    Last time Axl could legit sing with his signature techniques and rasp was 2006-07.

    RIP the glory days.

  9. If GNR would be frozen in time meaning that all of a sudden they would die in 1993 with all its greatness, I would be totally cool with that and I've had nothing to complain about.

    Just like Nirvana.

    I wish Axl would never return to music the way he did since 2001 'cause he fucking couldn't manage properly, failed from time to time and ruined all my great imaginations about the band I once loved so much.
    To be fair, yes there were short-term kind of signs and flashes of greatness and hope particularly in 2006 and 2016. But that's it. And at this point in my life I'm not not anymore getting excited about new music or any sorts of rumor indicating it. I don't really care if a new music comes out or not 'cause whatever comes out, it's gonna be fake as fuck. I Won't spend a penny anymore on shows or new music that goes to the pockets of the Brazillian clan.

    So no, sorry, I can't be positive at all.
