Making F@ckin' Videos: Axl's descent into megalomania, self indulgence, and insanity

67 posts in this topic

I had the the Don't Cry and Estranged ones on VHS back in the day. I've never seen the November Rain one. The ones I did see were pretty cringe worthy, and that's coming from someone who was a hardcore GNR fan at the time. Axl hangs out with some real tools. Del James? LOL!

Despite Kurt's trash talk, Axl was determined to bring Nirvana on tour with GN'R. "Guns N' Roses was about to do this massive stadium tour with Metallica, and they wanted us to open," Dave Grohl would later recall. "So Axl had been calling Kurt nonstop. One day we're walking through an airport and Kurt says, 'Fuck. Axl Rose won't stop calling me.'"


Axl: "I'd like to hear Nirvana do "Welcome To The Jungle." That's what I'd like to hear. I'd like to hear Nirvana do "Jungle" their way, however that is. And maybe Nine Inch Nails do anything, do "Estranged."

Another song, called ''Oklahoma'' - heard tonight only as an instrumental - was inspired by a court date with ex-wife Erin Everly. ''I was sitting in my litigation with my ex-wife, and it was the day after the bombing,'' Rose remembers with a wince. ''We had a break, and I'm sitting with my attorneys with a sort of smile on my face, more like a nervous thing - it was like, 'Forgive me, people, I'm having trouble taking this seriously.' It's just ironic that we're sitting there and this person is spewing all kinds of things and 168 people just got killed. And this person I'm sitting there with, she don't care. Obliterating me is their goal.''

This perfectly sums up Axl. He attempts to virtue signal his fake concern about a colossal tragedy and then he makes it entirely about himself and how no one else is as thoughtful as he is. Everyone else is just Out Ta Get Axl.

 

Oh, the humanity! If only more people had deep brainthoughts about Chinese stew and Falun Gong!

 

Self-involved, self-pitying twat.

It took a few attempts but I got through all three Making Of videos a few weeks back.

 

If there is any doubt as to why there hasn't been any more footage released from that time period, especially the long rumored "UYI Tour Documentary"...just watch this utter cringefest and there's your answer.

 

If you haven't watched them in a while, I highly recommend it.  And don't just skip ahead to Estranged for the good stuff....watch the WHOLE thing to appreciate the process of the devolution.  The Josh Richman stuff is just precious.  What a fucking tool.   And then he's absent in 2 and 3, not even mentioned, as if he never existed.

 

Slash and Duff and Gilby are just utterly miserable throughout the entire process.   Slash is like "Oh you want me to float down the street/play in the desert/emerge from the water like Jesus?  Whatever, I don't even give a fuck anymore."

I like Nirvana but Kurt wasnt doing gnr justice here. Guns still was a good band. And Duff, Slash and Gilby are/were musicians with integrity. The New thing always has to seperate itself from the old one. Having said that I agree with everything said about the misunderstood 12 min piano ballad man.

Nirvana is one of my favorite bands but Kurt was an even bigger douche than Axl is, and his cultural influence was absolutely corrosive. I don't think it would be difficult to draw a straight line from Kurt Cobain to antifa.

I also am a big fan of Nirvana. Watching Montage of Heck made me realize what a fuck up Kurt was. 

Towards the end where he's with (the murderer) Courtney and his daughter, he's blazed out of his skull. It's sad

 

however, I will maintain that Nirvana Unplugged is one of my favourite albums of all time. It's incredible

I have never seen these videos. I remember when they came out, I was kinda sick of GnR. They weren't the same band that put out Lies and AFD. 

 

But it I would like to see them. EBay and Amazon only have VHS copies for sale. Anyone have any sources?

Izzy has the peace of mind knowing he didn't take part in these embarrassing music videos.

 

Everyone else should be ashamed of themselves.

Those videos are great and are part of what made GnR a huge, epic, worldwide band.

 

They should have done many more.

They did. The songs Slash, Duff, Izzy, Gilby etc were writing were just not industrial enough for Axl.

An asshole who has his head so far up his own ass he can't see daylight, who believes in sniffing vibes and that his ex-wife was an Indian who butchered their children in a past life?

No.

 

Axl is a smart guy. It never happened. He never wanted to turn GnR into a industrial rock band.
