  1. Motorhead & My Bloody Valentine were without doubt the loudest bands I saw live. The bit in “You made me realize” where they do the white noise thing on that one chord is almost intolerable.... My ears would whistle for at least a day or two each time I saw Motorhead... Where did you catch the Stones?
  2. I’m talking bands you’ve seen multiple times only, individual gigs I’ve been to over 400... The stones do a lucky dip option, 2 tickets for $50... You can get a $600 ticket or a $75 ticket in the dip, and thus be anywhere in the stadium. but I’ve mostly gotten tickets in the $250- $600 range. The last “run” of stones gigs I went on was in 2018, I went to the first 5 shows on the European tour and I spent about £200 in total on tickets. Ryanair flights make it easy and cheap to follow tours in Europe. The 2 Stones shows I’ve saw since in Seattle and outside Toronto cost me $
  3. Part of my boredom during Corona has led me to pull out my tickets stubs and go through them. I was surprised at how many times I’d seen some bands multiple times..Over 25 years of concerts I’ve seen: Neil Young x 16 The Stones x 15 Therapy? x 22 The Pogues or Shane MacGowan solo x 17 Black Sabbath x 13 Iron Maiden x 7 Motörhead x 8 Sex Pistols x 5 Jesus Lizard x 5 DKT/MC5 or MC50 x 7 Mudhoney x 8 Stiff Little Fingers x 8 AC/DC x 8 Guns N Roses x 6 REM x 7 Primal Scream x 7 Oasis x 5 The Who x 5 Me
  4. Why the band couldn’t have pulled it together enough, to include either a complete gig, or a compilation of tunes pulled from gigs in this period and add it to the Appetite box, I will never understand. I understand.
  5. Don’t get involved in antiques dealing, or investing in wine. Videos like this are part of HISTORY, may only be the history of a band, but still a document of an era. (and the past is mostly what you’ve got when it comes to GNR, the last studio album was released 13 years ago, prior to that it had been 17 years... 1 album in 30 years kinda forces you to the past for material) I personally have always loved bootlegs, it was most of the music you traded in the 80s and 90s and a band ain’t worth shit if they can’t play live. So often you get bands that only make sense in
  6. Hell yeah, the ride on the nightrain solo for the few seconds it plays for is amazing. You can hear izzy, which by 1991 you barely could. They were a band then.....Now they’re just a group. Fuck hoarders man... IF this guy is looking $100,000 as mentioned earlier, he’s scum. I have a genuine hatred for people who make money from music that’s not theirs, touts at gigs, wankers demanding high prices for bootlegs, and worst of all the eBay selling autograph hunting fuckers. I once stood in line for slash’s autograph behind a guy with a les Paul copy ready to be signed and sol
  7. He is a cartoon. Some weird caricature of a guy who used to be in this rock n roll band 30 years ago.
  8. I should be tired, but all I am is wired. Aint felt this good for an hour.
  9. My 3rd Neil Young gig, and the best at point. He was on fire. Great this boot turned up a few weeks ago and in good quality too. Neil Young is the Fucking King.
  10. Between Jan of 1967 and April 1971 The Doors released SIX studio albums and a killer live album. And their last album was as good as the first. Between Feb 1970 and Sept 78 Black Sabbath released the EIGHT Ozzy Albums. Iron Maiden 16 albums, Motorhead 22 albums, AC DC 17 albums, Metallica 10 albums, The Stones 30 albums..... etc etc etc. Basically everyone on the list has released more albums than GNR. Once there was this gnr band, rolling on the street, time went by (lotta fucking time) and it became a joke.
  11. What we got here is failure to communicate, some men you just can’t reach.. So you get what we have here today and yesterday and last week and last month and last year, and previous years and the past two decades, which is the way he wants it... Well he gets it... and I don’t like it any more than you men....
  12. It really was, it was blank tapes a go go back then, I would spend entire nights copying tapes swapped at school that day. I was 12 in 91 and it was mostly the older brothers of my friends who bought the tapes or got the live bootlegs we traded. Use your illusion 1 & 2 came my way in oct or nov 91 on blank tapes, no track listing! I had to get that later. But when I look at the list of albums I got my hands on that year in 1991 it’s ridiculous. Maybe the golden era for rock music. I had some original cassettes but mostly blank copies of the following albums released i
