    It’s a step in the right direction. Can’t it just be that? It could obviously be better, but that doesn’t negate the step they’ve took here. 

    Doesn’t or hasn’t made up for anything in how they’ve treated fans. They’re now just doing something that’s the bare minimum. We’ll see how it goes from here 

    This is a reasonable reply. thanks ^

  2. Glad to see a shitty upload of 3 cliche songs from an average performance makes most of you this much excited and happy and twisted your opinion about 15+ years of management failure. good for you.

    Now go buy his Children's book and Toy Truck. Guess that's what most of you deserve.

    Fernando is more than enough for some of you folks. Enjoy.

    Alright, let’s cool the temperature in the room a bit.

    No need to spew vitriol because the mix sucks. 

    Give me a break downzy. It's not even about the mix. 

    It's just that this kiddo promises smth big and a month later comes out with a crap like this. Yeah maybe I shouldn't write for some time. Less censorship headache fo you isn't it?

    I just don't like being around some ppl who still get excited to watch some half assed emotionless performances of 13 fucking minutes of cliche 30+ songs.

    I'm outta here.

    Well. That's it, Fernando is not coming back to chat again when people did what he asked them not to. This community is incredibly self-destructive.

    The whole idea of "don't record me" is plain stupid and retard. Actually it goes pretty much in line with the same noob way Team Brazil has been managing this band so far.

    It seems like this family is disconnected from realities of how the internet functions. And perhaps in a broader sense, disconnected with reality. 



    PS: and I specifically asked him how does he rate his management skills and how does he compare it to Metallica's LOL

    I've also just read the instrumental demo 'As it Began' was released by Saive, feauring Richard Fortus and is called Goodbye.  Official link below.


    shit... Now I know why I had this feeling that I've heard As It Began somewhere before.

    This track by Saivu was one of my favorites back in time. 

    tnx for info!

    Not upset and I understand where you're coming from. To be honest with you, I'm not trying to build a rep by asking "hard-hitting" questions yet. I'm generalizing a bit because depending on the guest, the interview approach will vary. But overall I want just a "fun" and hopefully interesting approach. 

    I will give real examples. Tommy Stinson's people really expressed to focus on Bash n Pop and Cowboys in the Campfire. My first contact to Tommy was nice enough to suggest I change my original email to write GNR lower down in the body as a topic before it was sent to Tommy. Same with The Replacements. Not that Tommy didn't want to talk about them, but he needs to promote his new stuff to earn a living. And mainly, this is important, he has been burned before by interviewers. Many have. This is all to common. Promises to promote something new (their job) with barely a discussion to only focus on the "famous" parts of that person, if that makes sense. I didn't take it personally and they have every right to be cautious. Tommy came on twice. Who knows if I would have gotten 1 with wanting to ask hard questions. I have no doubt Susan McKagan would not have come on again nor confirmed new music on her own...I didn't ask her. Listen to Gilby's interview. He's sick of the same old questions. They all are. I don't blame them. There are a lot of bad interviewers out there.

    Another reason I do it this way is because I am not Howard Stern. Howard, and other big interviewers (From Rogan to Barbara Walters) are known. Guests know what they're getting into. I'm not famous nor is my social media huge. These guests probably have no idea who I am. While I majored in Broadcast Journalism in college and have had a professional career, the name "Brando" doesn't exactly come with cachet. All the articles in Blabblermouth, Loudwire, etc def helps! 

    That all being said, believe me when I say I either try to make the best of the opportunity or honestly get mad at myself afterwards for not asking certain things. It's a dance. Episode by episode.

    Hey @Gambit83 your interviews are absolutely in-depth and original. We get new information, never before heard side stories etc more or less with each episode. It's also apparent in every episode that you've done your homework before approaching individuals for interview.

    I like your podcast because it is exactly the opposite of paparazzi/TMZ style approach.

    You really think the average fan knows what role IZZY played in writing that or any song?

    Been saying it since before the "reunion" began. Only the above average to hardcore fan knows about IZZY, STEVEN and DUFF's level of involvement. To everyone else Guns N' Roses has always been and will continue to be AXL and SLASH.

    I know many fans of GN'R music that have almost no clue who IZZY is. When I meet someone and discover that they like GN'R, I always ask them if they can name all the members of the band. A majority of the time, they never name IZZY or STEVEN.

    Lame, but true.

    So I'm far from shocked this guy had no clue.

    Had seen many people in concerts front row who call em like Axel Roses, Gunses Roses etc.

    Once a buddy of mine travelled 2000KM to go to "Gunzez Rozez" show and he was so excited to post instagram photos with "Gunzez Rozez" captions.

    Usually the ones who get crazy during SCOM, WTTJ, LALD and awkward silence during Coma, Estranged and CD songs.

    + These are the target group of GN'R marketing team.

    It’s hard to compare two managers when their artists have different needs/objectives. I think his answer shows you their current focal point 

    True, that kind of sums it up for me as well. Corporation gave him an objective and he seems to have successfully achieved it.

    From the clips I've heard, it was funny to hear a bunch of people who spend their time on forums and discord trashing TB, to turn around kiss his ass trying to get his attention. 

    Again, I haven't heard all of the recordings but that's the impression I got. Some people did ask real questions but of course, no real answers were given. 

    I actually confronted him with this question:

    Hey @Flebeis I know I'm gonna be banned since everyone is kissing your ass now to get answers, that's how miserable we GNR fans are unlike some other big bands who communicate in proper ways with fans. anyway how do you honestly compare Metallica's management with the way you are managing GNR? honest opinion. are you proud of yourself?

    And Fernando answers something like:
    I donno about Metallica but we had huge ticket sales so I'm proud

    And he kind of said something like he doesn't like my attitude etc.

    This is the result of not being managed by qualified individuals. 


    The Rolling Stones, a band whose members are 75+ year olds, have been way more successful at catching up with social media and the coronavirus situation. For example, the Stones are streaming old shows every Sunday on Youtube, they just realeased a new song in 8 years that talks about being in lockdown, they have been allowing people to vote one song in their setlist for the last 20 years, etc. 

    Never compare a pioneering rock band with 26 studio albums to a Circus.

    And I am one of them but hey - it doesn't mean he's a bad drummer. He's just not a perfect fit for GNR or doesn't have the right chemistry with Duff.


    Actually he's a good fit for this Karaoke band. You don't need Josh Freese or any other famous drummer to cover the same setlist for over 20 years. any average musician can do this job. so Frank is fit.

    Aside from fucking some of Brain's parts in studio tracks, he has written none so I can't judge how he would perform on his own songs.
