  2. The "forefather" of metal thinks Led Zep is metal. GNR is metal What Are Ozzy Osbourne's Favorite Metal Albums of All Time? Anne Erickson 06.28.2017 The folks at Rolling Stone checked in with one of metal's founding fathers, Ozzy Osbourne, to give his personal 10 favorite metal albums of all time. Who better to ask than Ozzy, right? Osbourne's choices include Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, Led Zeppelin's Led Zeppelin IV, and Highway to Hell, to name a few. Osbourne says Appetite for Destruction is "one of the greatest debut albums of all time." He also asserts, "There's not a weak song in the bunch. I never get tired of hearing it." On Led Zeppelin IV, Osbourne says that Zeppelin has been a longtime favorite for him, explaining, "All of their studio albums are classics but this is one of my all-time favorites." Regarding AC/DC, Ozzy says, "I love Brian Johnson but to me my good friend, the late Bon Scott, was the best singer AC/DC ever had. This album was like an addiction to me." Rolling Stone recently posted their list of "The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time," and Black Sabbath's Paranoid was No. 1. Ozzy Osbourne's 10 favorite metal albums, in alphabetical order, via Rolling Stone: AC/DC -- Highway to Hell Alice in Chains -- Facelift Guns N' Roses -- Appetite for Destruction Judas Priest -- British Steel Led Zeppelin -- Led Zeppelin IV Megadeth -- Rust in Peace Metallica -- Master of Puppets Motorhead -- Ace of Spades Pantera -- Cowboys from Hell Rob Zombie -- Hellbilly Deluxe LOL Ozzy
  3. Here's mine (i'm gonna include Axl's solo band and exclude the very first lineup with Tracii, Rob, Ole, because there is no recording with those guys, plus they were good at one thing: fucked off when they needed to. Also try not to be a nitpicking asshole and do not include "shadow" lineups with Carlos Boey, Dave Navarro and Josh Freese, Paul Tobias, Tracey and Roberta etc.) 1. Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, Steven: Because AFD. No, because of those shows, those years were the best 2. Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, Matt, Dizzy: 1990-91 was still cool, still "fresh". Matt was a downgrade, but credit where it's due: he played on the UYI's 3. Axl, Finck, Bucket, 4tus, Brain, Stinson, Dizzy, Pitman: it had so much potential, it was a freak show and Axl was on full Mickey mode, but it was exciting. A thing we haven't had since the 80's. That's why i've elevated them 4. Axl, Slash, Duff, Gilby, Matt, Dizzy: there were great shows in '92-93, at least they tried to do their best. Gilby was a downgrade 5. Axl, Slash, Duff, 4tus, Frank, Dizzy, Melissa: well, we've got our fucking reunion, right there. Steven was a cool surprise, despite the cuck factor and everything. This reunion was 10 years late 6. Axl, Finck, BBF, 4tus, Stinson, Brain/Frank, Dizzy, Pitman: i'd say 2006-7 was a cool short period, but it was a bit too short to achieve anything more, that's why i've relegated them under the current lineup. Axl's voice alone could have been the third best, but let's look at the whole picture here. Hey, the 2006 lineup and the 2002 lineup could be swappable, but fuck it. ---------- Mariana Trench ----------- Fernando's putrid smegma and Beta's sweaty old nanny pussy ------------ 7. Axl, BBF, DJ Ashba, 4tus, Stinson, Frank, Dizzy, Pitman: the worst lineup ever. A pointless caricature lineup mostly on autopilot and even Axl's voice in 2010 couldn't save them from the embarassment: the mustache, the fatness, Ashba, the lies about new music, the wasted years, the ugliest Mickey performances ever, Vegas, Private Wedding shows...

  5. Funny article, also debunks most of wasted's and rovim's arguments about how Axl need time to make masterpieces. Puddlehead really want the paycheck “We never knew what the f**k was going to happen. There was no sense of stability whatsoever. “That kept the band in a constant state of aggression. When we got on stage we’d take it out on our instruments in sheer exhaustion or anger. It made the rock show legendary. “People ask me what’s different about rock’n’roll and I say, ‘It’s not as dangerous as it was.’ I’m not saying that’s a good thing. “I was in the most dangerous rock’n’roll band in the world at the time. That’s been an amazing journey, but I can’t handle living my life like that any more.”“Everything was so much different than what I expected. I thought I was walking into a straight-up rock band, a crossbreed of AC/DC and Aerosmith, mixed with the Sex Pistols and Nazareth. “Along came pianos and these epic 10-minute opuses. I was surprised.” Sorum also has fond memories of just how spontaneous and fresh everything was during that time compared with today, where everything is rehearsed to the point of soul-destroying tedium. “We didn’t have a lot of time to prepare – we rehearsed for about a month and went into the studio. We had to learn 33, 34 songs then we went in and recorded everything. “I was so crammed with music. I had so much to learn. In those days it was so crazy, how we operated. We’d take one or two takes and it was in the can. You don’t cut it up, you don’t f**k with it like bands do nowadays. It’s done.” “Everything that happened was so natural and everyone was given free rein. The leader, I would probably say, was Slash ( ) – he had such a work ethic. Axl was the front guy, the guy controlling what was going to happen that night. “ They needed a guy that could hold the fort together and I did that. It was an interesting time because things were moving so fast. “I look back with admiration that we all lived through it. We did it.” Sorum insists he still has nothing but respect for Axl, Duff, and Slash to keep doing what they’re still doing, even though none of the hard-rocking trio are as young as they used to be. “They’re out there doing that, going on stage on time every night. Times have changed, haven’t they? “What’s going on now is great for them, but I was there when it was great too – probably the greatest.”
  6. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On what it was like performing with fellow classic-GUNS N' ROSES-lineup members Slash, Duff McKagan and Axl Rose for the first time in twenty-six years in July 2016: Adler: "It was, 'Thank you, God, for this beautiful present.' I'd been playing 'Appetite [For Destruction]' [songs] live, 'Use Your Illusion' and the songs that, obviously, I didn't get to play on 'Use Your Illusion', I was practicing them… I was playing twenty-five songs twice a day for two years. 'Cause once I found out [the reunion] was probably gonna happen, I was, like, 'Yes! I'm gonna be ready and on top of it.' And then second rehearsal, I hurt my back and I had to have a minor surgery. I had a pinched nerve in the L4 [nerve root], and within an hour, I was out of the hospital and I was all better. And I talked to them [and said], 'Let me come back,' but it didn't happen, and I was resentful. And then I talked to my sponsor and I was, 'Okay, you're right. I'm not gonna give in to resentment.' And then they called me, and I [went], 'Holy shit! Here it comes. This is gonna be so awesome.' I'm still smiling about it. I have dreams about it. My wife goes, 'What are you smiling about? You're sleeping and you're smiling.' And I go, 'I was on stage in front of seventy thousand people with Slash and Duff and Axl.' I just wish Izzy [Stradlin, former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist] as there, but, shit, I got to do it. Thank you, God. 'Cause I wanted it for twenty-six years. All I did every day was, 'Please, God, let this happen. Let this happen. I wanna play with them again. I wanna do this.' For twenty-six years, every time I'd go out, people — not just one or two, but five, six, ten people, especially when I'd do a show, it was hundreds — [they'd ask me] 'When are you going to get back together?' And I wish I could say it would have been… Well, we would have never broke up, if I had a say." On his 1990 exit from GUNS N' ROSES: Adler: "If people think that I got kicked out of GUNS N' ROSES for doing drugs, they are so mistaken. Everybody in that band was doing drugs. I was doing less than anybody. I got kicked out of the band, and Izzy got kicked out of the band, and then Slash and Duff did, because Axl wanted to take control of everything — he wanted to own the name, he wanted to be the only person who gets paid for the songs. He wanted to be the manager, the accountant and everything, when all he needs to do is get up there and sing like a motherfucker that he does. But he wanted to own and control everything. Like Elton John — he wanted to be like Elton John or Billy Joel. That's where the whole piano thing came in. He wanted to be a piano man, which is cool, but that's not GUNS N' ROSES. Leave GUNS N' ROSES the way it is, and then you do solo albums, like all musicians in other bands do. But that's what he wanted to do, and that's what happened. So I was the first to go, 'cause I was the easiest one; I was the nicest guy. They tricked me. They had me sign some contract with my lawyer there at the office. And I was completely sick at the time. And I had no idea I was signing my rights away, rights to the name, my royalties. They wanted to basically give me two thousand dollars and throw me in the street. And thank God my mom realized what happened and she got a lawyer for me. And thank God everything got taken care of." On whether it was his understanding, while he was rehearsing for the reunion shows early last year, that he would only play one or two songs with GUNS N' ROSES at all the concerts: Adler: "My understanding was I was gonna do all the 'Appetite' [material], the 'Lies' and three or four of the 'Use Your Illusion' songs. And then Frank [Ferrer, current GUNS N' ROSES drummer], who's a wonderful, awesome guy, he was gonna do the 'Chinese Democracy' [material] and a couple of the other [songs]… I was gonna start it, he was gonna come in the middle, and I was gonna end it. And I was cool with that." On when he realized that plans had changed: Adler: "I was ready to do The Troubadour show [on April 1, 2016]. Like I said, I had been playing twenty-five songs twice a day for almost two years — every day. So I was ready to go. And then the second rehearsal… I came into rehearsal in January, February, March. And the fucking second day, I just stretched… All I did was stretch — I put my arms in the air to stretch — and I go, 'I just did something.' And we played another seven songs, and then my back was really sore. And I came home about eight at night, and then by midnight, I couldn't even stand up. It was just terrible. I was out for two weeks, and then I got the epidural after about a week, and then I had the surgery about two weeks… I was ready when they did The Troubadour show. And Duff called me and said, 'Dude, you're not gonna play with us anymore. You're not gonna do these shows.' And I was, like, 'You're the worst fucking person in the world.' And I hung up on him. And I tried to call him back and left a message, saying, 'I'm so sorry I said that.' When I said that he was the worst person in the world, I didn't mean he was, 'cause I was thinking I was the worst person in the world — that I couldn't even fucking get back with my fucking guys after they gave me this opportunity. But I said it to him. And when you have resentments, you say things that you're feeling. And I was feeling that about me, and I said it about him, and I couldn't apologize to him enough, because he knows I love him more than anything. And I got to apologize, 'cause, obviously, I'd seen him last year and we did shows together. And he understood." On whether GUNS N' ROSES chose to use Frank Ferrer as the only drummer for most of the shows because of tour-insurance reasons: Adler: "They already had Frank, so God forbid I couldn't do it, then there was Frank. So it's not an insurance thing. They just didn't give me the opportunity. It's cheaper to just have Frank. I mean, they were only paying me… not that much. I was doing it — 'cause, thank God, I don't need the money that bad — I was doing it because I wanted to play with them, and I wanted to play for the fans. 'Cause Frank is a great drummer, but he does not play the way Steven Adler plays, and Steven Adler doesn't play the way Matt [Sorum] plays, and Matt doesn't play the way Frank plays. We all have our own style, but my style is the one that is on those records that everybody grew up listening to and [made] memories to. So when Frank is playing those songs, he's not playing them right. He's just really a great time keeper. I mean, put it this way: they were playing '[Mr.] Brownstone'… I didn't know they were playing 'Brownstone' until all of a sudden they started singing the chorus. I went, 'That was 'Brownstone'?' 'Brownstone' you know instantly. I came up with a kickass groove. You know that. And I'm standing, going, 'What song is this?' But, like I said, we all have our own styles." On why he only played one song with GUNS N' ROSES at each of the two shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina last November: Adler: "I got there. And I got my wife [who is Argentinian], all her family, her parents, her sisters, her sisters' babies, their mothers, their aunts… I got, like, nine of 'em, and I was up there and I was ready to go up. And Axl says, 'What the fuck is he doing here? He's not supposed to be here 'till tomorrow?' So I was, all, 'Excuse me? I just flew fifteen thousand miles.' So they played a few more songs, and I came up, he introduced me, I played one song and they turned the lights out on me. I went back behind the drum riser. And I was all, 'What the fuck?' And everybody in the crew came around and started hugging me and going, 'Dude, we love you, Steve. It's okay.' I mean, the whole crew — there was, like, twenty people who came up to me and talked to me. And then the next night, I did one more song again. Other parts I don't even wanna talk about. All I know is the best of it is was me and my wife got to be together with her family for the first time in fifteen years. I have seen her family, and she's seen her family, but we'd never seen them together. So that was great… I obviously misunderstood to go to Australia and Japan and, I think, Thailand. And then, I was all, 'Yeah, I would love to do that.' But then I found out that it was either one. It was either, 'You can either come to Australia or you can go to Japan or you can go to Thailand.' And I said, 'I can't do that.' But, like I said, I got some closure, and I'm thankful I got to do what I did." On whether he still harbors any resentment toward the GUNS N' ROSES guys: Adler: "No, no, no. Not at all. I love those guys. It is what it is. What I want it to be is the five of us, and what Axl wants it to be is what he wants it to be, and I respect him for it. I'm just glad I got to be a part of it for the good part — when it was fun and exciting. It was magical when we were together [back in the late '80s]. Back then, even our worst show was great. It was just magic. It was very special. And I couldn't feel more blessed or thankful that I got to be a part of it. Or more proud. I'm proud. I'm gonna die proud. And I'm cool with that. [Laughs]" On whether there is zero chance he will play with GUNS N' ROSES again: Adler: "I have closure to where if they wanna do it the right way, the five of us… And, like I said, I'll share the stage with Frank — I don't care. As long as I'm there doing my songs, I don't care. But if they'd wanna do it the five of us, I am there! I love those guys. I'm proud of what the five of us… and since the five of us are still alive, I think the five of us should play for our fucking fans, give 'em what they want. I mean, I live a beautiful, comfortable life because people still love our music, and that's every musician's dream — to make music that people love. Not just for a week or a month or a year — this is thirty fucking years, and people still… Every time I get in the car and one of our songs [comes on], I go, 'Okay, there's my twenty-five cents. Yeah!' [Laughs]" On whether there will be another ADLER album: Adler: "No, no, no. Dude, rock and roll doesn't sell. Unless I get into a band that's already established, there's no point in doing it, dude. It's such a pain in the ass to fly all over the world, and you play little clubs or bars… Dude, I am so tired of driving up to the gig and going… I have pair of dice in my hand and I go, 'C'mon, seven. Let there be people here. C'mon!' I walk in and I go, 'Fuck! There's twenty people.' It's not the same. So unless I get in an established band, there's no point in doing it. There's no money. And my whole goal is to play for as many people as possible. Don't get me wrong — I love and appreciate playing for that one or ten or hundred people. I was thankful. But I wanna do it right." On whether he thinks there will ever be a proper reunion of the classic GUNS N' ROSES lineup: Adler: "Dude, if the five of us got back together, it would be the biggest reunion tour ever in rock — unless John Bonham came back to life or Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison and now [THE DOORS] keyboard player. If the five of us are alive, it would be the biggest thing ever; I mean, people would be so happy. It would be like an event… That's what it should be, that's what it could be, but that's not what it is. I asked Slash if he would talk to Axl about that, like, in July it'll be thirty years that 'Appetite' came out. So I was thinking why don't we just do four or five shows and play all of 'Appetite' from beginning to end, throw [in], like, 'Civil War', and maybe something off of… like 'Patience'… and record it, videotape it. And that's it, if that's all you wanna do. And if Axl's happy after that, then we could do more. But I thought that would be really cool. But that's my idea. If it was up to me, it would be a different story. But it is what it is."
  7. Inspired by a thread on a different place. Yes, i know it will never happen, because this is a shit band, but one can dream. if GNR played a 15 song set with only deep cuts and b-sides, how would that look? Let's say, this is a very special Vegas residency for a few shows Here are the rules: Use any GNR song to comprise your dream "non-hit" setlist. Try to refrain from including songs that have been staples.: It's So Easy, Mr. Brownstone, Jungle, Sweet Child, Paradise City, Nightrain, Patience, You Could Be Mine, Don't Cry, Live and Let Die, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, November Rain. etc. If you want to choose CD songs, be my guest, but you're a moron, imho (given the special hypothetical scenario). You're wasting valuable spots You can include Izzy/Duff vocal songs or covers too Keep it to 15 songs (14 regular, one encore) Ok, let's start 1. Shadow Of Your Love 2. Anything Goes 3. Don't Damn Me 4. Locomotive 5. Pretty Tied Up 6. One In a Million 7. Dead Horse 8. Perfect Crime 9. Right Next Door To Hell 10. Back Off Bitch 11. Move To The City (the album version, not the bloated one) 12. The Garden 13. Think About You 14. Reckless Life Encore: 15. Breakdown/Get In The Ring switched show after show without the dated rant/dated Axl babbling
  8. It's probably fake, but hilarious
  9. Here's a pretty decent article written about Izzy and his contributions to the band
  10. Adele: I'm not doing Super Bowl halftime show The Singer claims she turned down the slot, saying "I can’t dance or anything like that." The NFL and PEPSI deny making her an offer. I like the fact Adele said no. She thinks the gig isn't for her even though the exposure would be undeniable. And nice to see the NFL not being able to get anyone they want and now having to lie they ever made the offer. So, who will GN'R and/or AC/DC end up saying "yes" to the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show?
  11. Entry #1 15 May 2010 - 07:49 PM Thank you to all the members - old and new - who make this place worth visiting. <3
  12. when Slash holds his 1st interview/Twitter thing where he extols the virtues of Team Brasil? Optional #2: Will Axl Rose whistle on one of the new Regrupo songs? Optional #3: Will Axl Rose's new 2016 look be Donald Trump-inspired?
  13. "Not that any of our songs compare, but if you hear a short version of 'Layla,' I think you're gonna be pissed off, especially if you're planning on hearing the big piano part at the end. I hate the edit of 'Sweet Child o' Mine.' Radio stations said, 'Well, your vocals aren't cut.' My favorite part of the song is Slash's slow solo; it's the heaviest part for me. There's no reason for it to be missing except to create more space for commercials, so the radio-station owners can get more advertising dollars. When you get the chopped version of 'Paradise City' or half of 'Sweet Child' and 'Patience' cut, you're getting screwed." —The Rolling Stone Interview With Axl Rose Rolling Stone, August 1989
  14. Here's a link because the BBC video player only works in the UK: Canter did talk about it and they use some of his never before seen photo's and films, some pretty cool shots there (although it has some corny CGI shit) Steven, Slash, Marc, Matt etc. on it Still, worth a watch Btw today is Axl's birthday, but i couldn't bothered to make another thread
