      It's GNFNR fundraising time again, please help us stay on-line   05/27/2017

      Thanks to everyone who makes this place so much fun to visit, and THANK YOU to everyone who donated last January. The good news/bad news is that GunsNFNRoses has outgrown its current hosting plan, and if we want to stay online we are going to need to upgrade.   You can donate any amount, large or small (via PayPal). My PayPal username is matt.grillo@gmail.com Please enter your forum username so I can match up your contribution with your username. Thank you!   Every dollar helps. If you don't have PayPal a simple check would do. You can mail it directly to me, please PM me for my mailing address. I appreciate your support.   I do not want banner ads here so if you can help us out it would be appreciated. I dislike begging for money for the site but such is life... Thanks for understanding. I really appreciate all of your support. Please help  by donating now, THANK YOU GNFNR MEMBERS!

First of all, fuck you for making me click on that. I couldn't get beyond one page. Holy fucking shit that's awful. It's exactly like reading something from MLS's site. Axl has finally won. He's turned his entire fanbase into a bunch of hypersensitive pussies.

 

To answer your question, your points are obvious and logical. Don't let idiots convince you otherwise.

It's because they want to move attention away from the fact that Fortus and Frank will be there.

This

For the general public, it doesn't matter as long as Slash and Duff involved

 

For the hardcores, this is NuGuns

 

 

How is having 4/6th of the UYI lineup "nu Guns"?

Can someone tell me why people are still bitching about promotion right now? When they announce more shows and one doesn't sell out, then we cant start bitching about promo. Promotion/advertising is to sell tickets. Smart people dn't waste money promoting if nothing left to sell.

 

I believe there is a lot od friction behind the scenes. I have a feeling that Axl didn't do the Kimmel show because he wanted to loose more pounds and also be able to answer all the questions about line-ups, new music, tours, etc. I don't think he felt ready.

 

Blah blah blaha errghr arf arf

It was nuGuns from late '91-1992 :awesome:

 

as for Bobbo's thread: people over there just want to have a good time on these upcoming shows, that's all

 

Fuck cares about promotion... the name will sell itself and maybe this is TB's super duper strategy: keep up with the mistery (aka. "we are incompetent as a management so it's better to not do anything than doing something"  :shrugs:

Who are you guys even making fun of?

GNR fans

That's Nuborki-speak. I think the 400% real GNR thing is funny, but there are even fewer people like that than there are 400% devoted Axl nutters.

 

The truly shit GNR fans are the beaten wives who now seem to make up the majority.

May 14 - Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, CA confirmed.

When is the first show, I'm tired of waiting for Axl to hit the stage.
Seven and One Half Weeks Until the First Show. :axl:

According to Alternative Nation, there is an "oversight management committee" handling GN'R's affair, with Slash, Axl and Duff each having a representative and a fourth person representing the other members.

They're not a bunch of teenagers in 1985. They're not going to hash it out over some beers at a midnight diner.

Duff, Slash, and Axl all have cultivated their own images and brands post-GNR. And by pretty much all accounts the contract situation was a mess when they split.

Could it all fall apart pretty easily? Sure. But I don't know what else you were expecting, especially considering the modern state of the music business.

Lack of surprise is exactly why I'm laughing. This whole thing is so cynical and stale. I wonder how many corporate advertisement props they'll have on stage.
