I'm fine with Axl posting his political views. I mean, I'm quite opinionated when it comes to politics and, on occasion, I share my views online, so I'm not about to tell anyone else that they can't d

Am i the only one more interested in that giant cow? 

I hate the word woke.

Why wont he just run for president himself? Kanye could be vice president. Team Brazil negotiate with Putin and China and Kim Kardashian takes care of employment and climate issues.

But seriously, Axl seems to really care about politics and at his age he got enough life experience and sure has seen a bit of the world by now. The only thing pissing me off about his tweets is they all shallow and surface and passive aggressive. The vote tweet was the most decent and thoughtful thing he posted in a long while, if not ever. Why dont he just speak up for real and do an interview or an essay discussing politics? It's not like he's very busy releasing new music now is he?

I know you’re joking but I would definitely vote for Axl if I could :rofl-lol: 

I agree. The vote tweet was very sensitive and sincere. And I would love to hear him talking about politics in a video interview.

I Imagine axl getting drunk and have a huge party tonight

Let's hope someone who goes leaves their phone on recorder mode, when Axl inevitably and drunkedly starts playing them ChiDem2, Stay of execution and Guns N Roses NITL unreleased albums. I expect a full take of the General by tomorrow morning!

Axl never cared about politics and voting until Trump won. I remember his 2012 Kimmel interview right before the Obama/Romney election. He said he's never voted. He explained that he lives in California which always votes Democrat, and said that's the way he tends to lean anyhow. This was probably his first year voting. Better late than never I guess. 

It's at about the 8:05 mark.

Am I the only one who doesn't interpet his words that way? When he says "I haven't really voted", I always thought that he's talking about the 2012 election. Not that he's never voted in his life, but that he hasn't voted that specific year.

Sure, he continues explaining that he doesn't really have to vote necessarily cause California always votes for democracts anyway.

But I wouldn't make the conclusion that he's never voted in his life.

I take it to mean he’s never voted. Ever. Is he voting Red at 18 years old in Indiana.. as he’s running from the cops and hating authority? Don’t think so. Is he voting for Reagan in the 80s while living in Los Angeles in massive blowout elections.. Nah. I could see him voting for Clinton in 1992 because MTV Rock the Vote, but you have to personally get off your ass to vote and Axl was flying round the world. The rest of the elections after that.. as the Man says.. California is sealed, signed and delivered to the Democrats, so again as the Man says - He’s never voted (in 2012).

I'm surprised Axl hasn't posted much since election day. Especially since what happened at the Capitol. Such irony that Trump said he's his favorite rockstar and loves November Rain. Meanwhile Axl hates his guts.

He doesnt need too as Trump is on his way to the exit...a world wide sigh of relief!  Also every time Axl tweets anything politial  there is a contingency who like to make it known that 'he shouldnt be political in public' , so I imagine he lays low, cant blame him.

I've been wondering whether to unpin this thread. Is Axl done with political tweeting now?

What does everyone think?

Axl is never done with anything.  That's the problem with him. It takes forever for him finish whatever he starts doing

I said this some where else.  You know, about that whole issue of whether Axl or the band should be opening their mouth about politics.

I have to cuss or thank GNR a little bit for this.  I reflect on what Axl said about politics and his lack of involvement some years back.  Totally agreed, then Trump came along.  Always thought Trump was something I wanted nothing to do with for the obvious reasons.  Not that he's easy to ignore but then GNR started in.  They get my attention, clued in I better stop ignoring Trump and get in on what's going on.  Totally, blaming Trump though on why I can't go back to ignoring fucking politics.  Just makes it a little easy with some GNR.  

I agree time to unpin the topic.  It will pop back up again when Axl has something to say.

GREAT RELIEF!  All around the world...TRUMP IS OUT!  We can sleep at night.  The great thing is President Biden is going to change many of Trump's toxic policies such as climate change, Iran, Covid etc

I wonder if Axl acknowledge the inaugeration, maybe it will be a spur to some music rock4
