  1. I've shared the stories on the board before because, well, where else would I do it? I met Steven Adler after an Adler's Appetite show. My group wandered out by the tour bus area. One of the guys in his bad was nice enough to strike up a conversation with us. He assumed we were waiting for Steven. When we confirmed that was the case, he said he'd let him know. I kinda figured he was just being nice, but sure enough, Steven came out a few minutes later, specifically to say hello to us. He posed for photos and then shot the shit like we were old friends. Great experience. A few days later,
  2. I also attended that show. I don't remember there being a ton of missing fans for the GNR set, but I do believe we had a big thunderstorm outside the Dome. I also remember being disappointed by how few people cared about FNM. It's the only chance I've had to see FNM and between the empty seats and the lack of interest from those who were there, it just wasn't a great experience unlike the rest of the show.
  3. Mexican Pizza, Beefy Frito Burritos, Potato Grillers, and other staples are gone. I'm ready to rework the lyrics and record my own Get In The Ring on these evil corporate bastards who are ruining the Bell. "CEO Mark King, what you pissed off because Taco John's sells more potatoes than you? Fuck you! Suck my fuckin' dick!"
  4. I had tickets for this past Friday's show in Minneapolis. Our group is holding out for the new date rather than taking the refund.
  5. I can vouch for Steven being nice to fans. I went to an Adler's Appetite show. My small group decided to linger around the the outside of the venue. We met one of the other guy's in the band, who was great. He assumed we were waiting for Steven and said he'd let him know. I suspected that he was just being nice. Much to our surprise, Adler walked out to greet us a few minutes later. He posed for pictures and chatted with us like we were old friends. He could not have been nicer. The old "don't meet your heroes" line did not apply to Steven. Likewise, Duff was great when I met him about a week
  6. Slow day, so I'll join in on the silliness of breaking this down with a shot in the dark theory. Perhaps Axl was tiring of the relationship and opted to have Beta (or the producer in question) play the bad cop for him so that he didn't have to be the one to break it off.
  7. I'll keep it simple. I'd love a CD version of the live performance of Coma from Chicago in 1992 that I've watched way too many times on YouTube over the years.
  8. Claiming that the Road Warriors are a poor man's Demolition is like saying Led Zeppelin is a poor man's Wolfmother. There literally would not have been a Demolition tag team had it not been for the huge success of the Road Warriors. Wrestlers today still use the phrase "Road Warriors pop" to describe a massive crowd reaction to an entrance. Not trying to be a dick, just providing a bit of background. A lot of wrestling fans who saw Demolition first assume that the LOD were the ripoffs because they arrived in WWE/F after Demolition was created. It really speaks to the massive popularity of the
  9. I'm in cheaper ticket mode. I broke the bank for the last tour and enjoyed the hell out of the experience, but I viewed it as once in a lifetime (yes, for Not In This Lifetime). I'm sure I'll be fired up by the time the tour stops in my area, but I've never felt so blah about a GNR tour announcement, and that includes the era without Slash and Duff. I consider myself a glass if half full type when it comes to GNR compared to a lot of folks on the board, but I definitely share in the feeling that I need new music to be truly excited about this tour. Fingers crossed.
