  1. Yeah I agree with you for the most part. I think most of his late starts were because of ego. But I do think a few of them were him being in a bad mental state. The time they opened for the stones comes to mind, they had to send a crew to go find him. Also the day they signed their record contract apparently he was flipping out because he lost a contact or something and they found him on the roof of a building or something. Crazy stuff, if it’s to be believed. I do think the majority of the late starts were just because of being a rockstar ego maniac that knew he could do it.
  2. True, but what about the times he never showed up, or showed up late? Too many examples of those to list. Either way, the mental breakdowns aren’t happening or at least they seem like they aren’t. Also, I imagine the bottles quit getting thrown when he started showing up on time. but don’t get me wrong, I actually dug the late starts, it built the anticipation, but most of my friends would be pissed about it. I think the general concert going crowd shares their thoughts about it.
  3. No, it didn’t hurt at all when I got it. I got it at 1pm. Late that evening and most of the next day it was sore where they stuck the needle. Not terrible, but enough that you probably don’t want to do any pushups. Woke up yesterday morning and it’s been fine since then. Don’t let the fear that some are putting out there about the pain be a reason you don’t get it. I know some people have legit reasons, but arm pain shouldn’t be one of them. At least not from my experience. Good luck!
  4. Yeah needles suck, but the vaccine isn’t bad. I got mine the other day, little sore the next day is the only thing I experienced. When I received the shot I put my hands in the air making peace signs and then acted like I was holding a microphone and said “ round 1” lol
  5. I think the first tour after the release of CD he genuinely tried to build some momentum. He introduced DJ and honestly, the 09’ amd 10’ shows were great! I think when album sales didn’t really pick up l, as well as the possible rejection of CD2, I think he said hell with it. The 2011-2014 tours I believe were to get what he could because it seems like it would be over soon. The ability to do arenas in the US was quickly fading, so I think he did what he could to earn as much as possible as he could. I still like to think the reunion didn’t happen just the money, obviously a big part of i
  6. Yeah I agree. I’d love to go this year, but just don’t see it happening. If today showed us anything, we can’t rely on the general population to do the right thing anymore. That will significantly set back the whole situation.
  7. Guys let’s be honest, no shows in the US this year, I mean it’s just too dangerous with the civil war that will be in full effect by then.
  8. I just did a search and the better and paradise city versions of the harley commercial are still out there. If anyone is interested in checking them out. Black sheep commercial
  9. I don’t specifically remember a documentary in 06’, but I’m not surprised it got pulled. Just like the video for better. It was cool, showed a pretty accurate picture of what the band was like at that time. Axl basically shows up, and walks right to the stage, says something like what’s up to Izzy (probably the first he’d seen him in years) along the way lol.
  10. Yeah Axl definitely laid an egg with the momentum it had at release. The tour didn’t start until a year later, and it featured a new guitar player who wasn’t even on the album. I forgot about the tv commercials. They was one for Chinese democracy and there was a Harley Davidson commercial at one point that featured better, and maybe paradise city? I’m not certain on that, but either way, wasted potential!
  11. Yeah I’d say there was a buzz or hype that surrounded the release of CD. I remover MySpace had record streaming numbers when they released it the day before it came out. Plus remember how Dr. Pepper was involved, wanting to give everyone a in America a free can? It crashed their servers. So anyone saying there was only hype on the forum, should probably look at those examples.
  12. Is this whole show out there somewhere?
  13. The Full 2002 VMA rehearsal video! Are you listening to me Mr. hoarding man? Name your price
  14. I guess I’m the minority here, but I’d be up for a “dirt” style movie of Guns. The dirt wasn’t entirely accurate, but it was very entertaining. At least I thought so. I feel like these recent rock n roll movies are equivalent to the guitar hero games from 10-12 years ago. It’s kinda introducing these classic songs to kids in a way that seems cool, at least to them. Also the way they are released has a lot to do with it as well. The dirt was far more popular than bohemian rhapsody with the under 30 demographic I think mainly because it was in Netflix. Whether purists would like it or not, I thi
  15. As a teacher I can definitely relate to the no audio part lol
