  1. Wait, I thought you meant Melissa on backing vocals. What the hell did I just vote for?
  2. In all honesty, I bet they're recording, but have no real intentions of releasing it. Maybe if they feel they really hit on something good, then yes, but honestly my breath is not held. My only real wish for Axl is to get that voice back in shape, sounding loud & vicious. I kinda don't care about any other criticism.
  3. Peace of mind. Dude's been through plenty. Let him just play. I also honestly can't imagine the new material will be that great. The creative differences between everyone are probably still there. That said, if they got stuff in the can that is virtually ready to go: release, baby.
  4. Had not heard of these. Where's the info. that Axl actually called Slash first?
  5. Man, imagine if Axl went solo and had hired Bucket or Bumble to be in that band. We might be in a totally different place.
  6. Whatever they do, I hope they do not leave off a song that is deemed offensive ala "One In A Million."
  7. Completely agree - I think CD wouldn't have been such a burden for Axl, it would have been released more easily, and people would have been more generous with it. We would probably have more of that material officially released. Maybe even a reunion sooner and maybe even Axl's solo project happening at the same time as the reunion.
  8. Sure, and that may be true for GNR too. But as it relates to the band I don't think Slash & Duff ever challenged that contract formally, did they? Either way, the moral of the story is that that situation is probably a lot more complicated and grown up than "Axl's oh so bad he would not go on stage unless he got them to sign the name." And there are probably a lot more situations in GNR history like that where his input would be pretty revelatory, which is just one reason I want him to write his autobiography. Probably a lot of light he could shine on the early NuGNR years too. A
  9. The relentless "I Hate Axl" crew is one reason I want him to write it. Whenever I've heard Axl's side of things I generally have thought "Huh, that makes sense" or "Well, that's not as bad as people made it out to be." Case in point: people claiming he wouldn't go on stage until the band signed the legal name of Guns N' Roses over to him. People believed that for years. The legitimate press wrote about it. Then late one night on a forum (maybe this one) Axl said, "that's impossible because legally speaking that's a contract under duress and would not hold up." That simple sentence brought a lo
  10. Right?! He's said before a few times that he has difficulty with it because 1) it gets too depressing and 2) he doesn't know how to phrase things that doesn't sound like he's calling everyone a liar. I kind of worry that the reunion made this way less likely, but that said I am still really hoping.
  11. Happy birthday, Axl. This year please know that I'd do dirty things for some new music from the CD era and even dirtier things for Axl Rose: The Autobiography.
  12. Massive fame and success has such awful downsides. Case in point: leeches and hanger-ons like this guy.
  13. Can you imagine if he was a part of the reunion? I'm sitting here stunned from the thought. The fans here would meltdown. That said - why in the world would you turn that down? And what would his role have been? So many questions.
  14. Yeah - I think it's pretty well known they waited to make the reunion official once Slash's divorce was finalized. Yup - I think it was a combination of truly believing in the New GNR project and feeling deeply burned by the old band. Then it all kind of came to a head and it made sense to pursue this.
