Quote GNRBABY

Here are a few pages from a GNR script in the works. I can't tell you where I got this and could get in trouble for posting it but what the hell - you deserve it!

The following ia a scene from the early days - mostly about the "tour from hell" when the band drove to washington

from gnrontour.com:

06.08.85 - Rock Theater, Seattle, WA

opening act: The Fastbacks

audio/video recording?: no

notes: This is the infamous 'road trip from hell' tour, going up the West Coast.

ok here is the script:

EXT. CALIFORNIA STATE HIGHWAY-NIGHT

The old white car drives along a dark empty highway with Izzy

Driving, Axl in shotgun, Slash, Duff, and Steven ride in

back. The two roadies fallow behind in the U-Haul.

INT. OLD WHITE CAR-CALIFORNIA STATE HWY-NIGHT

The five bandmates are in heavy discussion. They drink beer,

cheap wine, and smoke cigs. The Misfits "Attitude" plays

softly on the radio.

SLASH

...That's what it's about for me

man...The music. The chemistry. And

just being a real fuckin' band...

IZZY

I'd be happy to just record some

records and play small rooms, just

like the fuckin' Ramones. Y'know

they got their own thing going and

they keep shit simple.

Duff Takes a swig of cheap wine.

DUFF

If you wanna keep it simple we

should write a fuckin' song called

Night Train, 'cause this shit fucks

you up!

The car erupts with laughter.

SLASH

But that's what it's about man,

real shit...

A terrible noise comes from the engine.

AXL

That sounded like some real shit!

IZZY

(griping the wheel tightly)

Fuck!

Thick white smoke pours from the hood as the terrible noise

gets worse. They are forced to pull over to the side of the

road. The U-Haul follows behind them.

EXT. CALIFORNIA DESERT ROADSIDE-HOURS LATER

The sun has risen and so is the desert heat. The band stands

around, helpless. They are decked out in stage clothes and

make-up. Absolute frustration sets in.

AXL

What the FUCK Man! This tour was

doomed before it started. The

"Suicide Tour" - we fuckin' nailed

that one!

METAL HEAD#1

(greasy finger pointing)

Paul and I can go get help in the U

Haul

AXL

We have no God damn money! And our

gear won't get to Seattle on time!

Everyone perks up and pauses.

AXL

FUCK! Son of a Bitch!!!

SLASH

Fuck it, let's have them drive our

shit to Seattle. We'll either get

there, or we won't

Duff takes a step forward.

DUFF

Fuck it, I'm in

IZZY

Alright...

STEVEN

Let's do it

Axl looks up at the blistering sun, then back to his band

mates.

AXL

I guess this is where we find out

if it's meant to be or not.

EXT. DESERT ROADSIDE-HOURS LATER

The band walks down the road with arm and thumb extended.

It's getting very hot for leather clothes; Sweat drips off

their bodies, their make-up is smeared to help them look even

more freakish than they already do. Slash carries his Guitar.

STEVEN

This sucks...

DUFF

(to Slash) I can't believe you

brought that guitar

SLASH

It's the only proof we're musicians

A car passes without stopping.

DUFF

Well, it hasn't helped for shit!

SLASH

It doesn't help when they find out

your not a chick either!

Duff bows up to Slash.

DUFF

Fuck You!

Axl gets between them. Everyone stops walking.

AXL

Is this what we're gonna do? Kick

each others asses in the middle of

the fucking desert?!

Axl grabs Duff.

AXL (CONT'D)

I'll kick both your fucking asses

right now! God Damn it!

Axl lets go of Duff and steps back. Everyone is shocked.

AXL (CONT'D)

This is it guys! We're at our wits

fucking end! I won't let it go down

like this! We're fuckin' better

than that. I think fate brought us

together for a reason. I think we

where meant to get stranded in this

shit hole desert.

Axl pauses and looks over his band mates. Sweat pours off his

forehead as his eye make-up drips from underneath his

mirrored shades.

AXL (CONT'D)

To see what we're made of. Plain

and simple.

Axl removes his shades and looks to his band mates with

conviction.

AXL (CONT'D)

You said it yourself Slash, "we

either make it or we don't". I know

we can make it! When we play

together I can feel it!

Somehow we're gonna get to that gig

in Seattle!

EXT. SEATTLE, WA: BUSY STREET-NIGHT

A '78 VW Bus pulls up to the club 35 minutes after showtime.

Two middle aged hippie chicks sit in the cab of the bus. The

band pours out the side door

AXL

(to chicks)

Just park anywhere you can...

The band notices their U-Haul isn't around.

STEVEN

Where's Danny and Paul

DUFF

They better fuckin' be here!

AXL

Izzy, let's go inside, you guys

look for 'em

INT. THE BLACK WALL CLUB- CON'T

Axl and Izzy enter the club. It's more than half empty and

crowd seems less than enthusiastic. They are spotted by the

owner

CLUB OWNER

Where have you been? Where is your

equipment?

The owner looks over Axl and Izzy

CLUB OWNER (CONT'D)

You guys look like absolute shit

He sniffs.

CLUB OWNER (CONT'D)

You smell like shit too!.. You

better not sound like shit!- You

got 10 minutes!

Axl and Izzy spot the rest of the band, who waves them over

towards the stage.

SLASH

Danny and Paul didn't make it

AXL

They didn't make it?

SLASH

You know how Paul had that gas

card?..

AXL

Yeah...

SLASH

Well, it got ruined. He stuck it in

the fuckin' visor and it melted

Axl gives a look of bewilderment.

SLASH (CONT'D)

No shit, man...I can't believe it

either, but their stuck in Frisco

right now...

AXL

How are we supposed play?

SLASH

The opening bands gonna lend us

their shit...

Axl perks up.

AXL

Fuck it, let's kick their ass!

The band takes stage, looking like they got dragged through a

car wash, and rips into a passionate version of "Reckless

Life". The sparse crowd gathers in front of the stage and

rocks out.

CROSS-FADE TO:

EXT. THE COUNTRY CLUB: 6 MONTHS LATER

The sign outside reads "Tonight! Guns n' Roses". The sidewalk

in front of the Whiskey is packed with people.

INT. THE COUNTRY CLUB-(CON'T)

The band is on stage firing through their set. The crowd is

going nuts. People are taking shots while crowd surfing and

moshing; groupies jump on stage and attack the band members

well, members. The band finishes "Reckless Life", then Axl

addresses the crowd.

AXL

Y' know, about 6 months ago we went

on our first tour...

Crowd cheers-band members swig whiskey and light up.

AXL (CONT'D)

Yeah, yeah...but it wasn't that

great. Ya see, our fuckin' car

broke down in the middle of the

desert about 150 miles out of

L.A...

Half the crown cheers, half the crowd mutter. Slash laughs.

AXL (CONT'D)

We had no money...we didn't have

shit! But what we did have was the

idea of- if we made it out of this

shit hole desert alive...

Axl Looks over the crowd and his band mates.

AXL

Everything else would be So Fuckin'

Easy!

The band breaks into "It so Easy" and the crowd erupts.

Dialogue could be better, but I think it is sort of interesting. I think the story of GNR would make a great movie. The characters could be really great, as each person in the band was pretty diverse. If done right it could be awesome.

Jesus. I hope this is a joke, like you said Zepsun, its as if someone has read one HTGTH article and written a script. Absolute shite.

I found the bit about Axl really pullin the rest of the guys together with his spriited pep talks quite funny.... :rolleyes:

Grimo.
