 Just a couple of weeks ago, some friends were excited about the G&R show here in Philly. I cautioned them not to go. He'll be (extremely) late starting the show, the band itself is good, but Axl's voice is horrible now. Of course they didn't listen. They had to leave to get up for work the next day. They were informed at 9:00pm (or close to that time) that Axl wouldn't be arriving for several hours.
You wouldn't see Sabbath doing that to their fans.

Slash and Stradlin were the ONLY reasons to EVER listen to that band.

I took my girlfriend to see GN'R on the "Use Your Illusion" tour, with Soundgarden opening up. They started on time, too.

And I liked some songs from "Chinese Democracy".

At this point, I think that's part of the novelty of what's expected at a GNR show. Folks expect Axl to show up really late, throw a fit when someone is out of tune or the lighting is wrong, and storm off in a huff after a handful of songs.  If he showed up to a gig on time, played a 2 hour set, and left everyone happy, I think people would worry that he's back on drugs.

I saw that tour. Around '91? I think they did show up on time. Not so much with the GnR/Metallica show in '92.

They were kissing Axl's ass up and down on a recent episode of That Metal Show and I couldn't believe it when they said the show was 3 hours long.  That's not the Axl I've heard about.

Chinese Democracy is a decent album, just not a good GnR album, feel likes he was trying to write a musical. I saw GnR at the Pontiac Silverdome when they were touring with Metallica. Faith No More opened the show. GnR started a little bit late but not too bad, Axl changed his clothes after every song, guess he thought he was Cher. They also played "You Could Be Mine" twice because the mic Axl was used wasn't good enough or something.

Unless Hell freezes over and the original lineup gets over thier beefs with one another and get back together I have no real interest in seeing GnR.

They should've broke up after 'Appetite'. It's been nothing but downhill from there.

Agreed. It'll never occur though.

You're better off with the Kiss tribute band Paul & Gene front*. Ace is and has always been a sh*tty guitarist, Peter is a worse drummer, and nowadays Ace is fat and balding while Peter is a bitter, old, born-again Christian.

/*They talk about replacing themselves in Kiss and letting the band continue. Only Kiss would do that.

Good. It seems like it was always Axl farking things up. I follow Slash on Facebook and he seems like an okay musician, tours a lot and the tours seems to go well. And he puts out new music.

It seems like all the GnR gripes are mainly Axl/Slash.

That's actually, to some degree, a story a friend of mine tells.  He lives out in L.A. and deals in vintage instruments.  At some point he had a piece that caught Axl's attention and the deal was made with his management; the guitar for dinner with Axl.

Axl showed up on time, was perfectly polite, they talked about music and guitars and living in L.A. and at the end of the night shook hands.  There was no incident, no arguing with anyone, no rudeness, just a nice all around guy.

The line that struck me was this:

"Axl has made enough money and wants to stop touring,"

Ya know what, if that's the case, then fine.  He's made his nut, did the album he wanted, did an album that stands the test of time....he's free to go do his own things.

That's

why he's retiring. He knows that even after 10,000 shows worth of groupie sex, he'll never receive a blowjob as good as they gave him on That Metal Show.
It was comical and sad at the same time.

Electric_Banana: They were kissing Axl's ass up and down on a recent episode of That Metal Show and I couldn't believe it when they said the show was 3 hours long.  That's not the Axl I've heard about.


They were being civil.  Over the years they've made no secret about their opinions on what happened in that band and the fact that the current GnR is basically a cover band now.  Also their undying support for the previous members and what they've done since they left GnR is kinda telling.  They give equal time and support to pretty much everyone, but damnation they've gushed over Slash and Duff's projects.  It's obvious they much prefer the other guys' company than Axl's.

Another indicator is when Sebastian Bach was on the last time, the subject of Axl making the fans wait for hours came up.  Bach went into this long tirade on how Axl makes people wait because he's backstage warming up and he wants everyone to have the best experience they can.  It was pretty easy to tell...Jim, Don and Ed were once again civil, but Jim especially was biting his tongue.  If you watch the show regularly they've made it clear that they don't approve of what Axl did to the original group or his delay tactics at live shows.

The guys are pros, so they're not gonna piss off the fan base.  But it's a safe bet....soon as Axl left the stage those guys ripped him for being the colossal douchebag his is.
 
2014-05-22 09:10:25 AM  
Oh, and I forgot one thing.

Lars, Kirk, and Jason have all been on the show...and they've ALL gone on record saying the big tour they did with GnR was a major lesson for them, on what NOT TO DO in the music business and also what NOT TO DO in life itself.

All the guys agreed heartily.  *Very* telling.
 
2014-05-22 10:13:55 AM  
Axl seems like someone who had always naturally been in shape but now has that puffyness that often comes with being over 50.  You can still be in good shape cardio-wise, but things just sag and pad out.

Genetics I suppose:  Jagger and Bowie aged well and stayed thin.  Axl is turning into a doughnut, and a doughnut looks sad trying to do the snake-dance while wearing a trenchcoat.

I saw him for the first time 3 years ago in LA at the Wiltern. The show was over 3 hours long and he and the band were great. I am still stunned by how good he sounded, the overall production, and the setlist. Sublime. But I know it's pretty standard fare to trash him around here, even though most farkers openly state they've not seen him lately. Yet they still know he sucks nowadays- just cuz omygerd no Slash! He did go on very late though. So that part is right.

In Sebastian's defense, he was probably smoking some of Ricky's weed before he went on the show. That stuff will blow your head off.

I also attended that show. I think axl wasn't happy with his vocal on that track. He stormed off leaving Slash to play a 20 minute solo. I recall many chanting for Metallica to play again. Also, lots of boobies. Seen GNR at Toledo speedway as well, and they were great. Duff jumped off the stage right on top of me, and someone tried to steal the boot off his foot. They filmed you could be mine video at that show, and I can make out a quick glimpse of myself. Csb

I actually saw the new GnR a few years ago in Atlanta when they played at Phillips Arena. I was shocked. They came out on time and played a pretty great set. At least, from what I saw of it because I had to leave about 90 minutes into it. But I would have stayed until the end because I was pretty impressed with what I heard.

Then they decided to do another show a few months later at The Tabernacle. I did not go to this one because I had plans, and apparently they didn't go on stage until WELL after midnight.

Guess I got lucky.

For whatever reason the local talking heads kept bringing up Axl every 5 minute news cycle this morning. Something about some crazy study that determined he had/has the most vocal range of pop musicians. I can't figure out who is paying for this placement on TV or why.

The show in Pontiac was the only show I have ever been to that I feared for my safety. Remember that avalanche of bodies that fell over the railing and onto the floor? I had a floor access wristband but all the extra people on the floor and all the mosh pits was insane! The crowd was like a rip tide. I didnt get home til 6AM that morning because traffic getting out of there was a circus and I still had to go to school that morning too. Good times and yes lots of boobies! Remember that one inflatable thing in the stands wouldnt inflate either?
 
2014-05-22 11:54:53 AM  
As silly as this sounds Axl really should go the route of one of his idols - Elton John. The man can write ballads, and maybe if he gave up on the rock trappings, plunked himself behind a piano and started penning more of the songs that pissed off the band for Use Your Illusion he could put out some good stuff, or at least good stuff relative to the genre he'd be in. Some people have it in them to put on a reasonable facsimile of their younger days well into their 50s and 60s, but he clearly isn't one of them.
 
2014-05-22 11:57:05 AM  
I'm so glad I saw them open up for The Cult way back in the day.  No one had really heard of them before and we didn't know what to expect. The show started on time, and they rocked.  Axl did try to fight some guy in the crowd though.

Just looked at those studies... putting Axl Rose at six octaves can't be accurate. Someone's equipment was on the wrong setting, or was measuring a harmony or drop effect of some kind. Anyone who has ever heard Axl live, even back around 1990, would laugh at Rolling Stone for publishing that.

The male vocalist with the greatest vocal range was easily Freddie Mercury - around four octaves natural voice, and another three easily when singing falsetto. Barry Gibb was something like three and three, natural and falsetto. I think Prince is somewhere up there too. Peter Cetera was well over three natural octaves at one point. Most importantly, those were gauged at live performances.
 
2014-05-22 12:09:33 PM  
I've seen GnR 3 times, once with the original lineup in 92ish with FNM and Metallica, started around mignight, played until almost 4 am, great show but my seats were not.
Then they broke up, and I decided I was done with GnR and Axl specifically after he cancelled the tour he was starting with buckethead etc, for which I had 6th row VIP center stage tickets. Years later Chinese Democracy gets released and I did not care.
Then I got a new puppy and within 5 minutes of getting him home he bit through my ipod charger cable, so while buying a new cable I picked up chinese democracy on a whim, as well as Alice in Chains new album. To my surprise I did not particularly care for the AiC album, but I loved chinese democracy.
So I went to see the new GnR, once in a stadium with decent seats, and the second on a mini-tour up close and personal, where it was all small venues, so I was standing 5 feet from DJ Akba for the whole show, the stage was so low you could reach out and touch the band if they walked over.
Yeah Axl is not his lean mean self any more, but both shows were 3 hours plus of GnR awesomeness, he sounded great, and hate the band all you like for not being Slash and Co. they all put on an excellent show and I am very glad I changed my mind, especially in light of this news that the opportunity may very well never exist again.
I have also seen Velvet Revolver 3 times, they were decent, great to see Slash rocking the guitar, but... they were no GnR.
Oh yeah, we named the puppy Axl.

Saw them a couple of years ago here in Denver. Black Label Society opened. GNR started on time and played a full setlist and encores. Great concert.

I've seen Velvet Revolver twice and Slash & Myles Kennedy twice. Both great in their own right.

The thrash scene has really hit their strides now that they've hit their 40s. I'm amazed at the most recent albums from:

Overkill ("Ironbound" = monster)
Anthrax
Death Angel
Testament
Slayer (speaking of bands that need to hang it up... at least WPB was good)
Flotsam & Jetsam ("The Cold" = the win)

The show in Pontiac was the only show I have ever been to that I feared for my safety. Remember that avalanche of bodies that fell over the railing and onto the floor? I had a floor access wristband but all the extra people on the floor and all the mosh pits was insane! The crowd was like a rip tide. I didnt get home til 6AM that morning because traffic getting out of there was a circus and I still had to go to school that morning too. Good times and yes lots of boobies! Remember that one inflatable thing in the stands wouldnt inflate either?

Ha! Yeah, the Floyd leftover inflatable no one checked to see would hold air!. Getting in was tough for us. I missed FNM and I was a big fan, and reeeeally wanted to see them.


FNM was awesome! They didnt even turn the lights down for them though. The body avalanche happened just after they played IIRC.

ristst: Maiden. That is all.


Depends. I like post-2000 Maiden*, but I can see some (mainly older) fans not liking how they've tried to be more like Dream Theater these last several years.

*I especially like "Matter of Life and Death," and "Brave New World." "Dance with the Dead" and "Final Frontier" have their moments.
