Just a friendly reminder:  

With any other band, it might mean "Hey we know the fans are talking about new music. And where's there's smoke, there's fire" meaning that new music is on the way.  With GNR, it probably just me

Well, well, well...

But, you know, he won't care, since he self-admittedly barely reads the forum

I'm imagining a frantic call from Axl - "I can't log into my account  - it says our whole house is banned"

Two people who really, really don't care about this forum getting really, really mad about this forum.

Oh, he would totally care. Where else would he get his martyr-fix from?

Fernando is allowed his opinion. He and his family get a lot of abuse on here. We'd all be the same, its much more personal for him. 

If anything he's a manager that's acknowledging the online communities.. and he helps the fans out in real life. You won't get any corporate  manager doing that or orchastrating for fans to meet Axl..etc

Can you IP-ban Fernando so we can see how mad he gets

Why would I ban him?  Don't you want to ask him a few questions?  Maybe even ask them sometime soon?

I'd like to ask him how it feels to be locked out of discussion that involves something he cares deeply about

There’s no reason to ban Fernando, hell its hard to tell what he was even talking about...or whom.  

Maybe we all shouldn’t be so paranoid it was about something that someone said here.   And honestly, if it was he’s probably right.  He’s in a much better position to know the facts about things than some blowhard like me or most of the other posters here.

It's so incredibly ridiculous that the only time they can open a line of communication with the only people who still care about GNR is when they want to present a one sided "woe is me" pity party and act superior. 

Wildly different viewpoints of GNR and different opinions of what happens is something that has always existed on GNR forums, I wonder what it was that set him off?

Can you post some? I can't figure out how to view them. 

  • fcocanalesYou’re my inspiration on drums man! I’m still waiting for you to join GNR again!
  • mattsorum@fcocanales u never know whats around the corner , thats the beauty of it all
  • Great!!!! Hey @mattsorum do you saw the Saskatoon show from 1993??? Was amazing!!!
  • mattsorum@axlvai Great town , drank a very nice french wine there Chateau Latour
  • gian_johnBefore being one of the most great Rock drummer of the world, you gave the most mature and iconic sound to GN'R. You are in almost whole band musical production: 3 albums, 43 studio songs, 20 live songs, 29 clip, a monumental 3-year world tour, all the videos, live (Tokyo, Paris, etc.), media, shows, MTV, VMA, AMA, the Freddie Mercury Tribute, etc.
    And that's a fact. The choice of not involving you is another enormous and unacceptable lack of respect towards world's fans.
    Person changes however they remains the same, my friend.
    I'm a guitar player but I always loved your sound.
    I hoped to see you finally in Rome with Alice & the others but I will not go if you will be in L.A.
    Hope to meet you one day.

Has he not been on any online forums ever?  That is kind of the only thing they exist for :P

I think his point is that some fans believe they are part of the band's world and the life's of the band members. I read comments on here that are from fans that believe they know what is in the minds of these people or what motivates the band or individual members to make decisions, that only affect them and them only. It is creepy when you read the comments of some because it crosses the line from being a fan as an outsider looking in,  to thinking you are part of whats going on in the band members or their managements minds or thought processes. That's how the stalker mentality develops as you start to believe you are part of a person's life or have some meaning in that life.   

You can have an opinion but it's from a point of view as a fan.. as we have no idea whats going on in the GNR world.

There's a remedy to this - it's called "not treating your fans like the enemy"

I have a bad, bad feeling that as soon as this tour is over Axl's going to reform NewGNR with Ashba & Co. and Team Brazil will go right back to shitting all over the past lineups

It takes a big man to own up to his mistakes - Axl and Fernando are not big men
