Okay, we're going to put pause on this conversation for awhile.  This thread has become pretty ugly and I think some time off is needed for everyone (including myself). A couple of things...

Man, that's harsh on Margott, she's done nothing but good for the band and the fans alike :/ 

That recent video of Axl falling was given a copyright takedown by Blojo, so here's a compilation of Axl falling that has no GNR music and so can't be taken down. Suck it, Blojo.

LOL. if you think so, feel free to tag your YT vids and let me know how much time it took for it to be taken down.

That would be hilarious, then when the video is taken down, tag the copyright/legal notice for them again 😂

Team Brazil know what the situation is regarding Wanker and BloJo, but then they still do shit like this. They are actively trying to fuck with the fans. Team Brazil can suck my dick. This band is a fucking joke.

I guarantee that whoever is running their social media went ahead with this and never got the memo from management. 

From experience, those guys are always the last to know that type of stuff. It’s as simple as that.

They’ll get the message in the comments and then go to management for an answer. If they’re worth their fee, then they’ll push back with the ludicrousness of the idea. They prob won’t listen

Personally I think Axl and his camp knows about the takedowns... And is their call to block the videos. Duff and Slash solo careers  don't have this issues. 

My point of view is a business strategy... With no videos general people don't get tired of the same setlist every other night. People don't get aware of vocal problems or weight issues. So they can pay the high prices tickets and cash in....

These youtube videos can really damage the general audience that isn't die hard fans and want a "better" performance overall.

If it's a good strategy, only time will tell.

This sucks! I tried looking up videos of their concert in Lincoln and at Exit 111 festival and there’s barely anything. 
 

That’s just ridiculous. SOYL is my favorite this leg, especially because Axl and Slash are sharing the mic on the chorus. I can’t find any video.

I disagree  @Beto 22.  Other entertainers don't do this.  Prince did. He was a control  freak. His estate also does these things. 

Being a control freak just goes into the direction I told... Axl cannot control how bad he sound and looks some days lately. So what he camp does? Block videos that shows this

That doesn't explain why literally everything, including classic Guns shows, is being purged.

Knowing a bit about them, they view it all the same as demos/leaks/etc. It’s copyrighted material. They aren’t going to fight to have that stuff be available. I’m not sure if they meant for fan shot vids to be a part of it, but they most likely gave those two bozos free reign to take down whatever they see fit.

As a digital strategy in 2019, it’s mind numbingly short sighted. Good luck with that. Normal fans outside of the “board community” are getting social media strikes/banned as a result. It’s a great way to not guarantee repeat business for the next tour, merch sale, or album. That’s for sure

That is totally true.  Ultimately you can be GNR or be like any other band in the world and realize that monetarily fan live videos don't hurt business and in fact are a great promotional tool in the 21st century that help maintain and foster fan communities.  If they aren't going to give us new songs, they can at least let us enjoy the seven millionth performance of Jungle from last week

I wonder if it's a case of them not being fully confident in how the band and Axyl sounds, and not wanting the negative comments/feedback.

Regardless it is a shame can anyone think of other bands that do this to the same extreme?

It's not GNR taking down videos. It's some guys with nothing better to do than annoy GNR fans.
