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.

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

Well, we are talking about two stadium tours here, EU and US. Say about a million customers must be provided some sort of explanation. Plus their right to get their money back.

$18.99 for the hardcover :o

Instead of buying your son an Xbox Series X please just buy him the packaging with a stack of these books inside. :lol:

I love how many people brought up Pearl Jam. 
 

its funny, if you went to their forum right now, you would think they were in as dire form as this bands fan clubs. 
 

People really have no idea about this band from the outside looking in. 


scratch the “most dangerous band in the world” moniker and replace with “band that has wasted the most amount of time in the world”

I think that with Pearl Jam, I am a part of the Ten Club and I actually think that that fan club can be too nipitcky over the fan club due to being spoiled at how much PJ does for it :lol:   

With GNR, it is frustrating because they could easily do even a third of what Pearl Jam does and the fans here would be SO appreciative of it.  It isn't like they don't have hundreds of soundboards from the last 30 years they could sell online, or even take just a couple of those and put them out on vinyl or something.  But instead they release toy trucks, children's picture books, basically anything but actual music

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.

True, i feel sorry about Slash and Duff, they to approve all it with such docility. Nor Perla was such horrible manager.

They are with no worries, money, and a good life. This is just businnes. They bussiness. And they want to include/get more market. Dont feel sorry.

WTF. Fernando is getting out of control. Calling his child and his niece by the surname Rose, calling himself a part of the GNR family, and most of all, releasing a book titled SCOM/GNR based on his family. Just read below:

 

This is unbelievable. I'm just speechless and sitting here shaking my head with disappointment and a somewhat sickly feeling.

I think that this is the final nail in the coffin for me and this band.

I'm not against children's books or bands doing this type of thing, when it relates. E.g. Jack White released a book based on 'We are goign to be friends', literally just the lyrics of said song cutely illustrated. Was a quality product tbh. Crucially it related to him and the band (and fans for that matter who love the song), this is just sad as fuck.....without being rude, who gives a fuck about a random person's kids growing up around a band touring, and done in a make believe children's book with the most popular GnR song slapped on it (unrelated to anything that the song was/is about).

I think the worst part about this is that this is the same band that once played a bowling alley with DJ Ashba and a useless keyboardist waving a towel.

How did it actually get worse?

Axl gave up and the whole thing became a brand. Even in the darkest hours (the points you mentioned) I believe Axl still had every intent of building something. 

Whether or not he could have is irrelevant. I think he thought he could and was still trying to various extents back then. 

Once Slash & Duff came back, it would appear that all parties involved just decided to cash in on the brand as much as possible. 

I'm not being poetic when I say this: it's truly sad.

This sort of stuff just pushes the fan bases away. No one is asking for this junk. What a joke.

How much more tackier can you be.

This is not a children's band or great role models for children.

Is anyone else even listening to GNR albums less because of TB?  Not to be overdramatic but ever since it is clear that GNR and their management are more into cashing in instead of being an actual band like anyone else, I have been reaching for GNR music way less

I know it is business, but also guess to they need something else about them carrers. Maybe they afraid of said something about TB, and the real "King" of it Circus is Axl , and.Slash and Duff just hired and good pay. Sad.

After my second NITL show my interest definitely dropped with the continued lack of new music. Until recently, I hadn't posted here in almost two years and definitely went through a long period of barely listening to any Guns at all.

Exactly. Which is why the reaction has been so strong. It's not 'only a children's book', it's what it represents as part of the wider scheme of things. 

To make this announcement 13 days away from a tour that they are still happily flogging tickets which isn't happening, and not mentioning that is appalling really. 

The one positive though is that all the casual fans are now going bonkers too and asking what the hell is going on with the tour and the general state of things. Once you've even managed to piss off the drunken wedding SCOM air-guitarists there really is nobody left to fund the carnival anymore.

I barely play them unless I've had a few drinks now, simply because there is so little material to listen to.

My thing with listening to GNR is that there's just not enough to sustain regular listening. I'll bust them out every so often, but there's only so many times you can listen to the same 5 albums from a band.
