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

If there were more all-female rock n roll bands, I'd be a groupie. :slash:

What about L7!

So after all the bitchin' n' whining about Slash being a backstabbing demon, Matt is wishing Slash a happy birthday all over social media.

Matt possibly thinks Slash doesn't know about the contents of the book yet (which may actually be true, afaik there's no proof the guys in the band had anything to do with the book not being released and it really might just be a corona thing), so he's still keeping up appearances.

Matt is being silly. Slash doesn’t owe him shit. Matt wants to continue to be apart of a major rock act and that’s over for him.

He must know that. If he's expecting the phone to ring and it be GNR he's absolutely out of his mind now. It's like going on a massive rant about what cunts everyone in the office is, how the bosses are arseholes, the company is a joke.....then dropping off your CV and asking if you can come to the Christmas party!

I'm 38, and I only discovered this band about a month ago. Yep, not joking. 

I thought: where the hell have you been all my life!? 

I absolutely love the song "Shitlist". Forget Cobain, this is gold.

Haha, the lyrics for shitlist a funny. 'Pretend we're dead' sounds a lot like Puddle of Mudd 'She fuckin hates me'. So POM has stolen it somehow.

There are only 2 female rockbands that i like Heart and The Donnas. The drummer and lead guitarist are awesome.

 

This is also awesome

I just finished the book and in fact Matt talks bad about nearly every single person he mentions in his book. 

Yes, it might be the GNR camp that stopped the release. But it also could be, just to give one example, Stephanie Seymour who simply doesn’t want a book to be published which states that she rubbed Matts balls under a table and tried to fuck the whole band behind Axl‘s back. 

Anyway, even if only half of the book is true, it takes a lot of glory from GNR and everything related (and I am not talking about the groupie thing because how could this be news to anyone?!) For instance, I am referring to the first Snakepit album. I always loved it, especially the vocals of Eric Dover. To date this album seemed to me like an album by a band who had lots of fun together and a band with a great chemistry between all members. I always saw it as the pure result and the opposite of what GNR was in 1995. Now I learned that Matt hated the vocals so much that he even asked Slash to delete all of his drumming from the recordings and to find a new drummer for the release. This was a real bummer for me. 

After all, Matt turns out like a very narcissistic person to me ... even though I always kind of saw him like that. He blames everyone for everything all the time but him. You won’t find a „I was wrong“ or „it was my bad“ in the whole book. 

I felt the same way about the Snakepit album. His disclosure bummed me out. He is quite narcissistic. The Stephanie Seymour disclosures were fucked up. He had no reason to reveal that information.  His backstage antics are just juvenile. I’m glad Slash and Duff were not like Matt. He claimed he had to school them to be rock stars. Slash and Duff are musicians first and foremost.

The main reason is that their drummer can't drum anymore because of pain issues caused through drumming. And i think they wanted to start a family life.

So Matt is friends with Slash until his book someday comes out?

Matt posts happy birthday to Axl, too, so I don't think his happy birthday wishes can been seen as an indication of something.

I'll read the book when it comes out. I really don't mind Matt dishing out the dirt though. What makes Slash and Duff so fucking untouchable?

I liked Duff's book, it was very well written, but the political corectness annoyed me. Tell us something interesting for fucks sake. Burst some bubbles. He said so little about so many interesting things yet went on and on and on about his martial arts mumbo jumbo. Who gives. I bet I'll enjoy Matt's gossip more.

I guess it's a matter of either wanting to air you dirty laundry in public or not. I mean, everyone has some dirt on people they know well, but you can choose to be classy and respectful. And obviously Duff chose that route and told an interesting and reflecting story of his journey without throwing anyone under the bus. I think there's nothing wrong with that.
