  1. The most frustrating part of all this isn't the fact that Axl and his band have only released one album in 20 years... It's actually the fact that TB refuses to admit that any of the concerns that the fans have are completely legitimate

    For example:

    A fan may ask Jarmo, why has nothing happened regarding an album and his answer will be, how do you know nothing has happened? How do you know it's not finished? How do you know it's not going to be released tomorrow??? And on it goes about nearly any topic you could care to name regarding this band!

    Usually I wouldn't give a shit regarding what a paid member of Axl's entourage has to say (and quite frankly I shouldn't have too) but when the fans cannot find anything out about what's happening then we resort to this crap.... Fernando said or Jarmo said type bullshit and that's supposed to be good enough.

    Kind of funny how Axl wrote lyrics about the media fucking over his band and giving false info out... And now him himself has resorted to this shit.

    Axl would have to be aware that he's pissed off his own fans over the years by being like this and yet still plays this charade.

    It's not much to ask that some sort of information gets relayed to the fans... Hell in this day and age you don't even need the media... Just post something on twitter or your website... That can't be misconstrued once in a while and most of us would be a lot happier!

    The only reply you will get will be........All of us are working VERY HARD in order to release music for the fans, Axl is working day and night so new music could be released, more good news is to come "soon"........

  2. Likewise, happy to take the music too but the lack of interest won't go down well with the Commander in Chief.

    All that fanatical secrecy and procrastination for very little in return.

    I don't expect anything to come out after CD ll for years or even ever anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me right now.

    It's too early to think about such things when all we have is one album, one half of the Chinese project.

    My guess is Axl knows he won't sell 5 million copies of CD ll. His motivation to release it is probably artistic as well, given he only released half of the work.

    I know he has some good stuff recorded, I guess a lot of things which has Robin and Bucket, It doesn't matters how much will it sell, but I am assuming he has some songs even better from CD.

    The question is why the hell it takes him so long to release, I guess he would have songs which are even mastered, I don't thinks so its a problem with the Record Company, Axl is the one who keeps on delaying and delaying and delaying, even for CD they blamed Geffen for the delay, Geffen said that they kept on telling TB to hand over the album but they dint

    The Conclusion is that Axl is a lazy person, he does what he wants to do and when he wants to do, he is a very difficult person to work with, I feel bad for the other band members who want to make music for Axl's band but most of their things get rejected and then they do solo things like BFF or Richard with Dead Daisies or Tommy going on tour with Replacements or Ashba with Sixx Am or Frank Ferrer shaving heads of other people

  3. Hey Marc, I hope you are doing good, I have a few questions

    1 - Slash, Duff and Izzy are good close friends, especially Duff and Izzy, so why doesn't Izzy do some shows with Slash and Myles or with Loaded? If Izzy can play some shows with Axl, then he can play some shows with Slash and Duff too, I guess Izzy is much closer to Duff than Axl

    2 - Slash is happy and busy in his solo career now, but any idea why don't Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven get together with Myles or any other good singer and do some shows? I know Izzy being in Velvet Revolver dint work out, but all of them are in good terms with each other, so what does Slash thinks and what is your opinion in this?

    3 - I thought after Gilby was kicked out, he and Axl wont be on good terms, but Axl showed up at Gilby's gig in 1999 or 2000 I guess, so why dint Axl tell Gilby to join the New GNR? how is the relationship between Axl and Gilby?

    Kindly Reply

    Thanks

    I don't really know why Izzy doesn't do any gig with Slash. I do think the VR would have worked with Izzy but Izzy can't really be trusted to stick it out. He is only good for a few gigs or so.

    The thing about Gilby is Axl didn't think he had what it took for songwriting. So jumping on stage with him was cool but thats about all your going to get. Also I think enough time went by that there was no hard feelings. You never know how Axl will react when he walks into a situation. He might be happy to bump into someone that he once had bad blood with as long as there was good blood between them before that. Like Duff in the UK at the hotel. Like Steven in Vegas 2006.

    Thanks for your reply, You have taken so much time and you did a lot for the fans by taking out your book and you did it from your heart, its wrong what Izzy did to you, As Duff and Slash are in talking terms with Izzy, why don't you tell them to Call Izzy and then you can sort it out with Izzy? You did nothing wrong, you just asked him questions only regarding the music and he left you hanging, If he can go to London or to Vegas to do shows with Axl which were being Recorded, then it should not have been a problem to do a interview with you or even answer your questions, Another thing I wanted to ask you that when you were in talking terms with Axl between 2002 till 2008, As you knew him from such a long time, you could just call him and talk to him directly or you had to go through Beta to even talk to him? Did you go to his Halloween parties in those years?

  4. I remember I watched the whole Rio stream in my dorm's lounge. This girl named Kaleela who lived down the hall from me opened the door and walked in during Sorry to use the sink. She just took one look at what I was watching, got this wide-eyed WTF look on her face, and left real quick.

    I actually enjoyed the whole stream, granted I'd been drinking and was singing over Axl half the time. Then I opened up a 258 page reaction thread meltdown, that turned into 271 pages like two minutes later, and then I went back and re watched some the next day and said, "Oh holy shit...."

    Did Kaleela ever met you after this incident ?

  5. Well it all depends on Axl's mood or what TB decides, Im hearing since 2010 that there are a lot of songs up "Axl's Sleeves" and new music will be out "soon" or "next year", Even in 2002 Axl said that CD will be out "soon", well that soon was 2008, these people don't even function like a band, they don't even go to the studio together, like man go to the studio as a band, make music and then release it? for CD there had been so many line up changes and god knows who re recorded who's parts, If they have material worth 2 albums then what the hell they are waiting for? just release it? or Axl is planning to wait another 8 years?

  6. Ive met Slash, Duff, Steven, Bumblefoot, DJ Ashba & Frank.

    My question to those who met Axl, how the hell did you pull that off (get him before the show, after?) Ive tried a couple times but no luck

    After the show was the best option, hang around near the tour busses , del said he's already gone, he lied ! Axl came out and signed stuff for fans, but his security would only allow one signed thing each person, this was Manchester 2012

    Yeah thats how I got to meet the other band members, Axl was inside, I waited till like 4 am, but the main fat security guy came and he threw me out, thank god I met all the other members before that security guy came

  7. Ive met Del and he is a cool person, I asked him about what happend to the girl in November Rain, he said to read his book, He tours with Axl's band and basically thats his job, he has to do whatever Axl says, If Axl hates Slash, then even del and people in Axl's camp have to hate Slash, But I guess Axl has kinda been changing, not towards Slash, but he is on talking terms with Duff and Izzy, so even del would talk to Duff and Izzy cause Axl is talking to them, I guess he doesnt wants to lose his job, touring with Axl's band is his kitchen money, even though Del has known and has been more closer to Axl, but TB has the final say in everything Axl does.

    I dint know about the buckethead bullying thing, but it could be true, Buckethead is a very talented person, he is different and he has done some amazing work on his solo albums, I cant say about Del, but Tommy could have bullied him, Ive met Tommy and he seemed rude to me, I really dint like his attitude, In one of the discussion topics I saw that someone gave Buckethead to Sign on Chinese, but he refused, So I guess he is pretty hurt and does not wants to do anything related to Axl's band, If anyone knows then update me with the bullying thing with bucket

  8. He passed away on may 30th 1997 due to drug overdosis.

    He wrote some songs with Axl,del and the band

    Yeah I know he passed away in 1997, but why dint he play shows with GNR when Izzy left in 1991? why did Axl call Paul in 1994 or 1995 in the studio for Sympathy for the devil and CD and not Wes?

  9. Hey Marc, I hope you are doing good, I have a few questions

    1 - Slash, Duff and Izzy are good close friends, especially Duff and Izzy, so why doesn't Izzy do some shows with Slash and Myles or with Loaded? If Izzy can play some shows with Axl, then he can play some shows with Slash and Duff too, I guess Izzy is much closer to Duff than Axl

    Thanks

  10. I was wondering if West Arkeen was still alive, would he be in the current line up of GNR? He was close to all the members and even co wrote some of the songs, so after Izzy left, why dint Wes join the band during the illusions Era and after Gilby was kicked out, why did Axl call Paul Douchebag Tobias in the studio and not Wes?

  11. Ive met Slash, Steven, Dizzy, Ron, Ashba, Richard, Tommy and Frank

    Steven and Ron were the best, they were very friendly and talking in such a nice manner

    I could have met Axl too, I waited for him but well the security threw me out

    All of them signed and took photos with me except for Tommy, he seemed rude to me, I dint like his attitude

    I even got a chance to meet Del and he was nice too

  12. It does not matters for the Management or Axl that who is in the band or not, they will just hire another guitarist on contract, But I feel bad for bumblefoot, he is a person who is making music for the fans and wants to tour, unlike Axl who is sitting at home and ordering from Mcdonalds, Richard and other members are still in the band cause they know whenever the band will tour, they will get their paychecks, they know if they leave the band, they wont be able to earn like how they earn in touring with Axl's band, but I guess for Ron its not about money now, he wants to make music and go out there and play it. When you are in the band, you go in the studio together as a band and make things together, not only one guy controls it, I guess it would be written in their contract that If you talk bad about Axl or good about Slash then you will be fired lol, The sad thing is that these members hardly have any communication between them, Robin was in the band for such a long time, but no member of the band are in contact with him, See Slash, Duff and Izzy they are like the best buddies even though they are not in the same band, I wish all the best to Ron and his new album
