  1. I don't know if that's because of his addiction, though. He hinted in interviews that he wasn't really content in Nirvana anymore and that he rather played with other musicians.
  2. In reality Nirvana probably would have broken up if Kurt hadn't died. He clearly wasn't happy in that band anymore. They postponed the European tour because of Kurt's voice problems during the last tour, but I think everyone knew that he wanted to bail and end the band.
  3. I don't follow every show, but didn't they also say that for the Vegas show? It's special to them because they have a connection there, this being Axl's home state. If I were you, I wouldn't read into everything but instead expect nothing, it will save you from a lot of disappointment, and whenever something does happen, you can only be pleasantly surprised. That's what I do. After having been a fan of this band for so long, that's the only way to do it really.
  4. Well, what did you expect? A new single being released every two or three weeks from now on? I can't believe people are so naive. This is GnR, they have always done everything at their own pace, which means really slow. Back in the day there was usually months in between new singles. Why bother getting your hopes up every single time they do a show now and then getting disappointed? You should know better by now.
  5. Starved fan base? They've released a new single a few weeks ago.
  6. Smashing Pumpkins - Fuck You (An Ode To No One)
  7. Surprised you got your second shot so late, because I remember you mentioned having your first shot the same week as me, but I had my second shot a month ago already.
  8. I never said that, though. I quite like you as a poster. As far as I'm concerned you are not one of those posters who endlessly repeat themselves on here because then I would have probably put you on ignore already. But you seemed quite uptight in your last posts, so I tried to give some advice to not take it all so seriously. That's all. I don't mind people criticizing this band, that's what a forum is all about. Most of the criticism they receive is totally valid and I agree with a lot of the negativity as well. It just gets annoying when the same posters keep on repeating themselves in every thread. It's redundant. It's like groundhog day here sometimes! But I (finally) realize now that there's no point in reacting to it, because they don't get it anyway, and then it becomes just a waste of time.
  9. To be fair, if I was stuck on that issue I'd be replying to posters like you 24/7. But I don't, just every now and then when I read the same complaint for the umpteenth time from a certain poster. I guess I shouldn't bother, but again... I was trying to give the guy some advice because he seemed really stressed out to me. Anyway, I understand what you say, but this band has always been this way and will always be this way. You'd expect someone to be intelligent enough to either accept it by now or move on. Complaining on an internet forum every fucking day is not going to change a damn thing and they should know that. But maybe it's therapy for some? So I'll give them that, and ignore it even more from now on. Okay?
  10. Re-reading ''Perfume'' by Patrick Süskind.
  11. I was trying to give the fellow some friendly advice, because I see him venting so much on here. I meant well. You can bitch and moan about something you can't change anyway, or just accept it already and concentrate on what you do like and make it easy on yourself. And if you don't like anything, maybe it's time to move on. It's a bit curious to me why people are so stuck on the same issue all the time.
  12. Nah, I get it, but I see people vent so much on here every single day, and yes, this is the place to do it, but I wish they would just accept it by now that this is how it is instead of getting so worked up each time. If I can do it, I'm sure you can too.
  13. I get it... I don't like it either, but it is what it is, dude. Just take it easy and try to relax a bit, ya know? I mean, it's just a band. No reason to get so worked up about every day!
  14. Haha... who gets to say what's normal? Seriously, just let them do whatever they want. If you don't like their approach, fair enough, but maybe it's time to accept that and move on?
  15. I watched an early interview with the Smashing Pumpkins from 1992 recently. They talked about how rock was dead. Not that there weren't any great rock bands out there, but no one was doing anything new, which is kinda true. I thought it was funny because now a lot of people are saying rock is dead and are nostalgic for the early 90's when all those (now) iconic rock bands had their biggest hits.
  16. I think Axl and Slash, with help from Duff, could still write great songs together. There are plenty of GnR songs on UYI and Appetite, without any Izzy input, that are some of the best GnR songs, in my opinion. That being said, I don't think there's anything wrong with an outsider contributing either. I saw a documentary on Desmond Child once. He's just another musician, who happens to be really good at writing songs, and there's nothing wrong with someone like that joining a band during a writing session and helping out. If it makes the songs even better, then that's only good.
  17. I love later Aerosmith too. Jaded, Pink, Girls Of Summer, Hole In My Soul. Might be too poppy for some people, but I like it.
  18. Nah. For a lot of people being negative, especially online, is fun or simply a way to deal with something else in their life. If the band ever releases a new record, some will complain that Izzy isn't there. And should Izzy be part of it somehow, they will complain that it's not as good as Appetite. Not everyone, but for those who like to whine and complain, there will always be something to go on about.
  19. If they hadn't cropped the picture, it would have been much cooler,
  20. I am not so sure... that was a very different situation.
