I would love to see The Cult and GNR together in the States. I never miss The Cult when they come to the Twin Cities area. They are just a great live band. Ian actually bitched that the club they played at last time was too nice for rock. Fun stuff. Faith No More is another favorite. I saw them open for GNR and Metallica back in the day, but I'd love to see them again.

My two favorite bands (FNM and Gn'R), it's a fucking dream. Still, I can't see this happening. Mike Patton doesn't like Axl and he will probably bash him during the show.

Why? What has he said about him do you know?

He hates him alright. :xmasssanta:

Well, Mike hates a lot of people anyway lol

EDIT : I just love Mike's reaction when he's told that Axl wants to make GnR more "industrial".
