  1. Reminds me of that scene in the Steve Jobs movie where Jeff Daniels is explaining the selling off of the SuperBowl TV Ad and (paraphrasing) said, "I told them to try but I wouldn't be too upset if they couldn't get it done." Seems like that was the attitude of the entire band. "Try but if it doesn't work out -meh, fuck 'em."
  2. I've always argued that 1997 may have been the best year for the WWF ever. It has Bret's best work as a character. Austin's best and most original work as Stone Cold. Michaels was great. It was the birth of the Attitude Era - but still relied on traditional wrestling programming and feuding. I hold it in high regard next to WWF '88-'89 years.
  3. With all the corroborating evidence we have now - it seems obvious that Vince simply decided to pick Shawn over Bret culminating with Survivor Series '97 - and that it never had anything to do with Vince's monetary concerns regarding Bret's contract, seeing as Jim Ross has confirmed that Vince was paying Michaels $750,000 to stay at home up until the point WCW went out of business. It's all moot now - but I think he picked the wrong guy. And on some level - he has to know that. Bret Vs Austin at Wrestlemania XIV would have been one of the great main events in Wrestlemania history - maybe
  4. I always assumed it was some weird combination of timing and power. Where Sorum lacked groove he made up with his power to accentuate those punchy riffs. It seems like they just figured each other out by '93. Fitz does a pretty good job of almost matching it - especially on Nightrain. Ferrer just sucks the life out of that song.
  5. Axl Rose: Bank Teller: Mr. Rose, your cheque has cleared! Axl Rose:
  6. My man, enjoy the memories you have. Enjoy the music they gave us. Worrying about new music is like a Toronto Maple Leafs fan worrying about the Stanley Cup - it's nothing to worry about at all (bad joke).
  7. Heartbreaking. What he did for guitar playing can never be spoken of enough. RIP EVH
  8. It's a shame this level of musicianship wasn't saved for the Guns N' Roses album. What could have been.....
  9. More trinkets please. And stickers. Scratch N' Sniff too! Don't hold back on the good stuff!
  10. I'm late to this thread but just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you put into helping this site function and all the discussion you helped facilitate! Forums that have a sense of community are great to be a part of, and even if they don't last, it's still great to be a part of it at one time or another, and I think you were a big part of making MyGNR have a sense of community! Cheers
  11. If I could guess, I'm sure Pitman felt like a loyal confidant of Axl Rose and he stood proudly in that circle of "Yes" men who surrounded Axl and believed all the hype and vitriol that was spewed against Slash and other former members over the years. He probably felt - at some point during those years - that the Guns N' Roses they were in was the real band, and that Slash/Duff and the others were enemies forever on the outside. And fast forward, all of a sudden, everything is being pushed aside for the enemy - and that enemy is now a bed fellow. And Pitman just loses it. I can s
  12. Great song. Great melody. Band is tight. Song has punch! Definitely a throwback to the Illusion era.
  13. "How dare you?!" sully the great name of Jack Tunney by comparing him to Fernando. Fernando is The Red Rooster!
