Ok, I never figured out the spoiler thing (typing this on a phone) so proceed with caution. Here goes on NITL: - Matt and Duff are playing in South America sometime in 2015 with Hollywood Vampire

One strange thing is how Sorum was such a Casanova? He claims to have been touched-up by Stephanie Seymour. He claims Liz Taylor was wanting to shag him. He claims Naomi Campbell molested him. He appa

Let us stop being fanboys and think about a few facts on the NITL tour. Steven made a few appearances but these were not promoted or advertised beforehand. It sounds like he could have had more i

Im very excited for the UYI 30 years. More than a new album.

Iam to. But hope the band dont half ass it in terms of product. I reckon all they will do is remastered illusions, remastered tokyo DVDs and that will be it. I hope im proved wrong because i want to billboards,  merch, dvds etc and the band really go all out for the fans and not an overpriced boxset again.

They could literally release a pro shot of the entire tour 30 years to the day of every show for 3 years from 2021 to 2023. But this is GNR they don't release shit

Idk how to say it, but i think the delayed book have to do with a big thing going on. 

If it was any other band, I would say maybe.  But with GNR, do not read anything into anything lol that is a one-way ticket to disappointment :lol:

So true indeed. "Loose your illusions" would be a very good name to a new album.

Not sure if this was mentioned but a cool trick is you can download a sample of the book.  I just did via itunes.  Gives a taste of what’s to come in July.

Anything good worth mentioning? I'm particularly curious about any insight (unless it's a rehash of what he's previously commented on) as to the 1994 - 1997 era, leading up to his departure. 

Funny how he and Axl met up in 2006 but Matt never really elaborated on exactly what was discussed.

There's a sample on Amazon, too. It's mostly the parts about his childhood and The Cult.

There is a story about Axl supposedly saying that he wanted to fund the army in Nicaragua. Sorum mentioned something like that in the 2016 BBC documentary, too, only there it was Guatemala. Apparently Matt doesn't know anything about these countries or what he's talking about.

From interviews I've seen Matt seemed to be the only one who challenged Axl on his lateness for gigs. It should be interesting. 

I'm sure Matt was offered a small guest spot on the NITLT tour but turned it down.

I met Matt Sorum waaaaay back in the summer of 1999.   Cool dude, he signed my UYI LP for me.

I asked him about the SPIN artlcle tha had just been published and he laughed and said something like "Yeah, Axl wasn't too happy with me about that."

 

Knowing how Axl holds grudges over the years, it could be as simple as he didn't like that Sorum was dishing dirt on him in the press over 20 years ago.   Of course, Sorum has said much worse since then, so I can understand why Axl wouldn't want him around.   He's a "Suppressive Person" as the scientologists would say.

The Axl grudges are very stupid. He keeps his shyt list members for decades. It is a very poor reflection on him. He should have stopped that shyt by 2000, late 90s. He is to be pittied, well not pittied, but looked on as pathetic.  Meanwhile Matt, Steven are living, happy, full, whole, healthy , adult real lives.                      I think Matt's book will very interesting and will sell well amoung GnR fans.

It'll be in the bargain bins within 2 months, as Adler's was. 

I'll pick up a copy then.
