Guns N' Roses to Release Children's Picture Book


Recommended Posts

Just going back to the People article for a sec. It says it's been (co)written with James Patterson - is this the famous James Patterson who wrote all the explicitly gruesome murder books? Or is there another James Patterson?

I get that he's apparently a big fan but wouldn't an author known for children's fiction be more appropriate?

Everything this band does is weird.

the same J.Patterson

On my mobile this thread was abbreviated as "Guns N' Roses to Release Chi.." and I open it to find this 

Fuck Fernando.

There's nothing to say that hasn't already been said in the thread  For once, I literally have no words. This is the biggest face palm day for me as a GNR fan.

He's done kid's books before but for the teenage market. He's a great writer but this is very different to his usual stuff. Fernie probably googled the biggest selling author and saw dollar signs

He is notorious for using co-authors and ghost writers, sometimes offering no more than a plot outline or treatment but still taking the main credit for a given novel.

The ambiguity somehow seems mighty appropriate for this band. :lol:

Has anyone said anything positive about this idea in this thread?

One or two posters did. And I’ll add two positive items...

- The illustrations look tight. I’m a fan of the genre and this doesn’t look like they skimped on the illustrations.

- there is a Books/Reading thread in the Anything Goes section of the forum. Only 4-5 of us post their with regularity. Mostly we post what we are reading. One of those posters reads James Patterson novels. This makes me wonder if Fernando at least bothered to peek at that thread to see what authors us fans dig?? Could be a coincidence of course, but it’s an interesting one, imo.

Thanks for the Patterson info. 

I tend to associate him with Kiss the Girls and that snake in butt torture scene (I think that's the only one I've read). Which in itself is quite 'GNR' but not when associated in the mind with a book for small children. :lol:

Patterson has been criticized for co-authoring many of his books[28] and for being more of a brand that focuses on making money than an artist who focuses on his craft.[29]

Their "management" look as "Three stooges" :D

If only beta had used a fucking condom. 

If only Stephanie Seymour would buy a washing machine instead of hiring a laundry maid.

it's more like that the "management" let the band look like the three stooges, and that's the saddest thing about it, that TB drags the whole GnR brand into the mud.

Haven't even read through the thread yet but the title just made me laugh.

This is the result of not being managed by qualified individuals. 

 

The Rolling Stones, a band whose members are 75+ year olds, have been way more successful at catching up with social media and the coronavirus situation. For example, the Stones are streaming old shows every Sunday on Youtube, they just realeased a new song in 8 years that talks about being in lockdown, they have been allowing people to vote one song in their setlist for the last 20 years, etc.

Never compare a pioneering rock band with 26 studio albums to a Circus.
