  1. A lot has been said about why Metallica went on first. The fact is still that Guns N' Roses were bigger. They were the biggest. And they weren't going to open in any scenario. Guns had a broader appeal. Metallica knew that. They may have been co-headlining but it was Metallica who joined Guns N' Roses, not the other way around. Unfortunately GN'R didn't retain that superiority. Today Metallica is regarded as bigger and more successful but back then Guns were on top of the world. Never been a big fan of Metallica myself. Just don't see the what the big fuss is. Some decent songs though.
  2. He's so uncomfortable. He doesn't know if he should tell the truth or not. Then he deduces that if he said that they had got together it would be a blatant lie so he decided to be honest. Good for him. There's nothing going on. As expected. That's why I find it irritating in a way when fans who got into this band much later than some of us did constanty put forward wishful theories how everytime there's a break the band must be "recording". During every break speculation arises "oh, they must be in the studio" and then nothing. Ever. After every leg since the start of the NITL there
  3. I have no info regarding the money but I've always felt the whole "we lost money" was a bit exaggerated. A bit of a revisionism on their part. They certainly didn't make as much as they could but when you're the biggest band in the world playing stadiums and huge crowds how can you blow all that money on a few theme parties, legal fines and a sizable entourage. And also wouldn't there be at least some info regarding the total gross avaliable before taking all the fines and other expenses into account? Not In This Lifetime is at $584,200,000 but it's not like they pocketed 600 million, the
  4. On topic, I believe Axl likes Christina Aguilera too. Her vocals at least.
  5. Now I feel foolish. I had no idea, never heard of that bit. It's a good joke, I like it. I just jumped at the opportunity to talk about The Beatles.
  6. Didn't really know that, I just bought it quite recently, more as a completist type of thing. I thought of it as some sort of GH package because it does contain a lot of hits.
  7. What 'best of' are you referring to you? I own Beatles Past Masters vol 1 & 2 but there's not enough songs on there to be truly representative. I also have 1962-1966 (Red Album) and 1967-1970 (Blue Album). Both Red and Blue are double albums so there's a lot of songs and it's probably the best 'greatest hits' package out there. But there's too much stuff missing. I also have 1 (#1 singles collections), hugely popular but flawed in a sense that a lot ob best Beatles songs didn't necessarily reach number one. The Beatles are in my top 5 bands so obviously each album is amazing. As far a
  8. Greatest Hits is a great collection of songs. I own Hard Promises, Into The Great Wide Open, Full Moon Fever, Wildflowers and Highway Companion. Love them all from start to finish. Wildflowers is often hailed as his best album but I'd go with Into The Great Wide Open/Full Moon Fever. Jeff Lynne is the shit.
  9. Zeppelin is the kind of band that grows on you immensely. I started with Latter Days and it was Kashmir that got me hooked. Now I own their entire discography and they're one of my favourite bands but it did take some time for the material to sink in.
  10. Great answers here. A lot has been mentioned. In regards to the shows he's been to, I think Kiss is on that list too. Axl's the reason I got into Sweet and Nazareth. I remember reading that Sweet was his first favorite band and Nazareth his current. I was just starting to get into music so suggestions were always welome. Coming from the man himself meant so much more. I love the 70's glam era, Cooper, Glitter (I know, I know, but his music still rocks), Bowie, Slade, T.Rex, Sweet. There was a time I was telling people Nazareth should be as big as Zeppelin. Obviously Zeppelin are a cl
  11. I never cared much for the fact there are overdubs. Live Era is awesome. Axl was capable of sounding that good anyway so who cares if they overdubbed some parts. I love to just crank it up and enjoy this masterpiece of a band that was. You wanted the best... Gives me goosebumps. A very cool representation of that era. I bought it way back in 1999 (replaced it with a new copy since) and for a while it was my favorite GN'R record to listen to. Great versions, live KOHD at it's best.
  12. Weird. Why would Cortini get inducted but not Charlie Clouser? Don't get me started on Rubin with his one studio contribution. Shit list. Trent is NIN. End of. But if you're going to include other people: Reznor Vrenna Finck Lohner Clouser I'm on the fence with Ross.
