In other news, humans age. Sometimes, they put on weight when they age.

And folks wonder why we're so obsessed with clothing, and cosmetics, and hair plugs, and liposuction, and personal trainers, and special diets, and so on, and so on.

Meh.  There are much worse things one can turn into in your old age.  At least everyone smiles when they think of Benny Hill.

I saw Guns N Roses last month when they played the Sun Bowl. Axl has lost A LOT of weight. I was really surprised. He still had a small paunch, but he looked nothing like he did during his Tons Of Cake period a few years back.

Also, they put on a great show and Slash kicked ass for three solid hours.

I'm a human...I age...
And I look amazing for 48 years old.
138.4 pounds this morning. 5 feet, 9 inches tall.
Hit that heavy bag every day and you'll be thin and cut forever and ever.
Seriously.
You can now go back to being fat.

He certainly can't sing any more.  In that recent Sirius concert he sounded like he was strangling a Bobcat.  No, not the feline.  Bobcat Goldthwaite.

I know this is heresy, but Chinese Democracy is a good album.  It isn't on par with Appetite or either Illusions albums, but I'd say it is on par with Lies, Slash's Snakepit, Believe in Me, and Pawnshop Guitars.  It is tons better than Spaghetti.  The fact they still play some songs from it with the original lineup says something.

Oh bullscrump, just saw them in concert a few weeks ago and they were a-frikkin-mazing, Axl's voice was strong as fark, three and a half hours of gnr awesomesauce. Two young guys (early 20s I guess) sitting behind me were wondering aloud before the show if it was going to be any good, chatted with them a bit to assure them it would be great, afterwards I asked them what they thought and 'mindblowing' was what they came up with. Im glad they got to see it, really was an excellent show (Miami Arena), easily one of the best concerts Ive seen.


On the broadcasted Apollo show I listened to, the band was great, while Axl sounded like nails-on-chalkboard.

NASAM: GnR is one of the best shows I've ever seen, and one of the worst.
Best: 1991 Outdoor amphitheater. They were in their prime. Played past curfew and killed it on every song. Bonus: Slash's solo was the Godfather theme. The entire show is on YouTube. Search GnR Deer Creek.

Worst: Metallica/GnR 1992. Metallica played first and blew the roof off the joint.  GnR wouldn't come on for TWO hours after Metallica finished.  They took the stage after midnight and by that time the crowd was worn out from Metallica and running out of booze and weed.  The best the crowd could muster was a smattering of applause after each song and Axl was getting pissed.


Old Metallica was one of the best live shows ever. I caught them a half dozen times from 88-91ish and every show was cheap ($20) and they just...kept...playing. 3 hours. 4. 5 at times. Old stuff, new stuff, stuff they'd make up on the fly

Then the late 90s happened and ....I don't know, Lars' clitego began taking steroids or something and things started going all sideways...

They broadcast their Apollo theater concert live on Sirius XM. I was expecting a train wreck but it was a good show (despite Axl's "High Pitch Eric" vocals). And was surprised they played 3+ hours. Figured they'd play 1 and a half hours and bolt.

I read this and thought he was going to do a sketch show with naked women and naughty songs.  Sort of disappointed.  Oh Well.  Here's some classic Benny:

Great. Now I'm thinking of Benny Hill in tight leather pants.

Yakety Slacks?
