Guns N' Roses to Release Children's Picture Book


Recommended Posts

It's not just about the book. They could have released it in 2 weeks or so after they cleared everything up about the tour. It's just the worst possible timing for releasing a book because they show the fans, that they don't care about them and don't want to provide them with much needed information, but instead they wanna make a quick and easy buck by putting out a fucking book

They should get their priorities straight 

That book won’t make much money. The claims of the band making a quick buck are wearing thin. What do you think this book will produce in revenue? Even, best selling authors don’t make much money unless they are J.K. Rowling.

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. 

I can’t believe I have become one of the negative fans. I have been listening/loving/sticking up for these guys since 87’, but no longer. It’s a joke, sorry folks, nothing new, nothing interesting and this is from a guy who bought pit tix for at least five reunion shows. Can’t tell you how many times I have seen different variations of this band since 93’. What a joke.

Its the principle of the thing.

do you really think a new Guns N’ Roses album would make a shit ton of money? 

In our streaming age? probably not. 
 

Again, its the principle of the thing. As far as I’m concerned, GNR is a band. Not a bunch of authors for kids books based on a plot that was written as a ‘joke’ 33+ years ago. 
 

Where is the band part of it?

Yep, can QPrime management please approach the band in managing them. TB has really fucked this band with their atrocious merch. Its really embarrassing being a fan......:facepalm:

It is irritating how this guy who had zero to do with what made the band runs it so much into the ground

At the end of the day (quite literally), you are going to tell me the same man thats beefing with trumps whole administration right now is the same man that ‘okayed’ toy trucks and childrens books and HASN’t  written a LICK of political induced rock and roll rage?

i just physically cannot grasp it anymore. It is too unreal.

People, you don't want new music. Look what jarmo has to say about this:

 

 

How? Well peoples' minds aren't necessarily on music. And I mean, other people. People are stuck at home, or without jobs etc....

Also, we don't know if the summer tours are happening, and when. So bands that put out new music now don't know when they'll get a chance to play that material for their fans. It doesn't necessarily sound like a plan anyone would want....

You're aware that touring and merch is how bands make money these days since music sales are down from the "good old days" right?

No excuses, just possible reasons.

Could’ve of asked Jarmo himself earlier on this same thread but he got suspended :lol:

Jarmo is the resident bands ass licker and I cringe every time someone posts something he has said here on this forum.

Esp when they post like he has legitimate information.

Especially that "some people" agenda of his. Like, you didn’t like 100% of the band’s particular performance somewhere, only 95% or so? Well, you’re immediately getting "some people are never satisfied, some people are apparently haters, these some people should go and listen to something else"... Just because you had a tiny negative comment about something. Some people indeed...

They should get their priorities straight 

I'm also confused as to how releasing a book was the priority for the manager (Fernando). Wasn't he just on reddit a few weeks ago talking about how things are bigger than we see and they're all trying to ensure all those folk and families reliant on the GnR are  machine are looked after and stuff? Followed by how they need to figure out how to release music in the current age? bla bla bla?

 

But managed to release a book, with GNR's name and song, based on his kids, find an illustrator, publisher, etc etc. It's just baffling.

 

At the end of the day, its not fucking hard to release just one song with the talent, funds, and resources they have. THey don't even need to be in the room together. One song, formally released on a streaming service, would make a world of difference to so many ppl and wouldn't exactly have the band breaking a sweat doing it.

 

Yet Fernando releases a fictional book about his kids experience growing up around the GnR touring brigade. o_O

I don't think it is Fernando who stops new music from coming out. I am sure that is the band Axl, possible with past members and the label forming obstacles. So what can Fernando do? He could of course do nothing -- to protect the band's pristine legacy (heh) -- but instead he works on other aspects of the band management where the band Axl will not be a barrier but instead, apparently, gives the thumbs up, including merchandise.

It's unreal. Love how even the casuals are fed up with this shit.

Team brazil needs to be removed. Slash and Duff should quit or speak the fuck up and demand changes.

This would be the perfect time for Izzy to release a supercool Rock n Roll album with some nice digs at this circus. That would be awesome.

If we dont get rid of team brazil then at this point i am really hoping slash/duff leave the band. Maybe bring back velvet revolver along with izzy back in the mix or slash drop another killer solo lp. Gnr is drowning.

Well, I think we can all agree the absence of a new (music) release has nothing to do with there not being any money anymore in it.

I wonder if they'll even recup costs with this book. It's a pre-order for September, so I'm guessing they'll only print what is ordered? And some extras to send out to all the rest of the GNR Fam.

It is getting interesting actualy. Because, I wanna know what will be next. Patience board game is this most dangerous band in the world?

I'd rather have a Patience board game than a book featuring TB's kids. Knowing our luck even the Patience board game will feature TB. :(
