    To have a backyard cookout party at my house, with all the forum members attending, and Adler's Appetite performing live on the patio.

    Got drunk at 4:30, Got to the show at 6, tried to meet Liars, no dice Gave my old ticket away to a scalper's potential customer after said scalper offered me $10 for it and I told him to fuck off. Tried to get a shirt at the merch stands, lines way too fucking long, retreated to pit as the opening band ended. Our Lady Peace, terrible. Got right up front, 2 or 3 people behind the rail on the right side. Saw Beta and Del James in the flesh. Very shit. ISE/Brownstone were fun, CD kicked ass, Axl was inaudible enough during Jungle to make it work. DTJ was an early relaxing break after the rockers. Spent the whole song smoking the joints being passed around and staring at Slash's guitar solo in a trance. Better was shit, token good sounding screams. Intro is cool live. Dead crowd even at the very front. By Estranged I was good and stoned which made singing along in front of Slash a lovely experience. Axl's terrible voice was VERY apparent, as of this song I considered the YouTube myth officially debunked. Live and Let Die was actually... pretty fucking awesome, not gonna lie. Got the grease flying again after the prolonged break. Another 12 minute chill song with Rocket Queen (oddly wasn't played at my 2010 show), Axl sounded as bad as he does on YouTube, it just doesn't matter as much when you're 4 feet away from the guy. You Could Be Mine was very bad on Axl's end but fun to experience. It was at this point that I pulled something in my shoulder and had to spend the rest of the show pretty much standing still. Some guy started flipping off Axl and yelling "I'm here for Slash, fuck you!" and the security guard pulled him aside for like 5 minutes, lol. Duff solo/Attitude was terrible even with the crowd being mildly excited for Attitude. This I Love had more people singing along than I expected. Slash's solo has gotten a lot better. After Civil War and Yesterdays, neither of which were offensive, the winds of shit blew across the Commonwealth field signalling the imminent arrival of Coma. I immediately weaved my way through the crowd, frantically searching for a real, non-outhouse bathroom. After 3 minutes of searching and 5 minutes of sitting I managed to accomplish my goal of taking a shit to Coma. Fantastic experience. The song fully served its purpose and I support its inclusion on further setlist. I returned to the pit shortly into Slash's solo and was able to get pretty much back to where I'd been before. Not a chance I could have pulled that off at Metallica, GNR fans are soft. He really needs to stop shredding the Godfather riff. Johnny B Goode was easily the best solo of the night but all I could think of was how awesome it'd be to have AC/DC Axl singing along in full rasp. Sounded so perfect in my head. SCOM was fun to be up front for. Slash played the solo a few feet from me which was pretty sick. Then Axl said "we're gonna do something we haven't played before" and I was ready to make the BIGGEST shitpost until it turned out to be another cover. Used to Love Her was unexpected and fun, Axl sounded terrible, crowd loved it. My Michelle was alright I guess. WYWH/Layla is just as boring in your face as it is on YouTube. November Rain sounded weird to start, like they were playing in the wrong key, but maybe I was just high and tone deaf. I think it was this song where I realized Melissa does a lot more vocal "heavy lifting" than I thought. After being mesmerized by Slash's gut I got trolled for a second time as Axl said "we're gonna do something else we haven't done before, a little arrangement I've written." At this point I was sure it was Atlas but then it was I Feel Good, which was honestly awesome imo. Possible Axl highlight of the show. Everyone's mad about it not being a new song but it's fucking 2017 GNR. Axl arranging a cover is the closest we're going to get to a new song this decade and I was front row for it. Black Hole Sun sounded better than it did in the early performances. I like Axl's chorus voice. KOHD boring. Nightrain awesome, spent my last energy here knowing it was all slow songs and shit Seeker/PC from here on out, or so I thought. Patience was Patience. Then they played Rosie and I was just too dead to move but Axl sounded predictably good. Don't Cry was something I really wanted and I'm glad I got it. Ending singalong was a highlight of the show. Seeker and PC lol In closing: -Fun show overall, Axl sucked but is fun to be directly in front of -Slash by far the highlight, having a front row seat for his solos felt like a privileged experience -Duff looks like a walking corpse in person -Richard does more for the live show than Izzy ever could, but Izzy still needs to be there in some capacity -Didn't notice Frank once -too many fucking covers -Probably would've been bored all show if I wasn't in the pit Objective Score: 6/10 Bacardimayne's GA Pit Experience Score: 8/10 Did I get cucked?

    Back in 1998 to 2003, I was addicted to cocaine, freebase, OxyContin and smack. I started out just selling weed, and then I had this one customer/friend who would trade me these big Oxy 80s for some weed. The next thing you know, JB is addicted to OxyContin. At this time, I worked Sunday thru Thursday. I'd take Oxy every Thursday after work and then have a 48-hour morphine fest. I'd ride my mountain bike up and down these really hilly country roads and just get soaked with wave after wave of cold sweats. It was awesome. Sometimes he would trade me a Fentanyl patch, and I'd tear that open and eat a glob of it from the edge of a pocket-knife. That was a trip. Dangerous, but nice. "Over-doses" can happen in really stupid ways. Like, you just get into such a deep sleep, that you forget to breathe, or you fall asleep with a candle burning, and you burn your whole house down. One afternoon, I woke up and put some chicken nuggets in a dirty toaster oven, and then I drove out to the mini-mart to buy a gallon of milk. At the store, I ran into my old friend Mike, and the 2 of us had a 30-minute wastoid loser conversation, before I finally drove home to my burned-down apartment. I was functional in that I never lost my job, but the opiates started to wreak havoc on my personality, changing me into a more and more irrational, insane person. My moods became more and more erratic and unpredictable. I began to alienate my girlfriend at the time. Now, we've all heard the story, you get hooked on Oxy, and then when you can't get Oxy, you get hooked on smack. Like most U.S. cities, mine has plenty of places to buy heroin. I began snorting heroin and getting really dope-sick for the first time. And really fucked-up. Just like just completely useless for 2 days. My girlfriend left me and then I did the drug addict thing backwards -- I went from smack to coke. Coke. I grew up in Jersey, so coke was always a thing. I dabbled in it for years before I ever had a habit. Sometime around the Millennium, something must have changed geo-politically, because suddenly there were kilos of very pure, inexpensive cocaine in Western Massachusetts. I was single and fresh out of college, so I had time and money to spend on coke. I kept a big pile of coke on a mirror in the knife drawer, and I'd snort a big fucking line right before I left for work, and another as soon as I got home. I had myself convinced that coke was great for my career, I could work longer hours, and get more done. "I don't have a cocaine problem. It's when I DON'T have coke, that's the problem." I told myself. Eventually, I started playing music with this guy who taught me how to cook good freebase. That was a quantum leap in drug use for me. I stopped smoking marijuana, and went into a phase where I drank whisky and cokes, smoked freebase, snorted coke, smoked cigarettes, and played music every night until the Sun came up. It was Good Times. It was Bad Times. I'd wake up late on Sunday afternoon and eat a bunch of ice cream, and then I'd get ready for my week. One Sunday afternoon after a 2-day cocaine and whisky binge, I woke up and looked out my front window and watched this guy in the street, teaching his daughter to ride a bicycle. It was 4pm on a perfect, sunny, Summer day. It was beautiful, touching and innocent. I felt wretched, lonely, and sad. I had a moment. I quit using drugs that day. I turned my life around. I got back into shape, got clean and sober, and spent the next pahse of my life doing sit-ups and push-ups instead of coke and heroin. I traded beer and whisky for Stop & Shop seltzer. I still have problems. I'm an addict, but I havem't used "drugs" in over 10 years, and I don't even drink alcohol every night. I'll always have an addcitive personality, but I never became a full-blown addict, and I guess that's due to luck, Providence, good genes, personal character, or whatever. I don't know. I'm just grateful I didn't die, end up in jail, or get a tattoo.

    This forum is lots of fun for the group that has posted here for YEARS. Have I not made it obvious in the 7+ years I have been online, that this is a fan forum, by the fans, for the fans? I am not here to get party passes, or lick anyone's ass. I made this forum so I can post about Guns N' Roses without being censored by weird fans.

    A long time ago, Facekicker (I think) compared NuGNR fans to Star Wars prequel fans. The similarities don't end there. AFD/UYI Era = Original Trilogy Widely accepted as the peak of the franchise. Among its 70s/80s sci-fi/hair metal contemporaries, it stood out and now stands the test of time while others didn't. Has a few minor setbacks (Ewoks/So Fine). If you claim to be a fan and don't like this era, you're probably trying too hard. CD/NuGNR = Prequel Trilogy Objectively not very good, but one thing can be said about them - they're an honest attempt to do something original and different. Nerdy niche followings made up of people starved for new content exist(ed) for both. Regroupening = TFA/Disney Star Wars Soulless, corporate cash grab. Tries to pass itself off as something new, exciting and interesting, but is really just a sparkly rehash of the same old shit, but with SJW bullshit added (female and minority protagonists/Melissa Reese, Trump pinata). Sorely missing key factors of what made the originals so great (George Lucas/Izzy Stradlin) while retaining dead weight because people might still recognize them (Carrie Fisher/Duff McKagan). The legacy people involved obviously do not give a single fuck. (Harrison Ford/Axl Rose) As time goes on, the franchise will be milked for all it's worth. (Yearly spinoff movies/Yearly shit tours) Solo Projects = Expanded Universe Some of them are pretty decent (Shadows of the Empire, Battlefront II/Apocalyptic Love, Shuffle It All) but most of it is artistic diarrhea (Darth Maul surviving the fall/Pawnshop Guitars, anything by Duff).

    Because he doesn't overvalue himself. He knows his spot, he shuts up and he plays. Same as Dizzy, except Fortus has talent.

    Did he go to the wig store and say, "Can I please have the absolute worst looking hairstyle on a wig you have?" or did the wig salesman sell him that horrible looking thing on purpose so Axl can chalk it up to another out ta get me moment?

    Today, they lawyer-ed up and sent me an email threatening to shut down the site if I don't remove the fat Axl photos. if the site goes down this weekend, you will know why. here is my response: "Hi I am not hosting any of those photos. The images are hosted elsewhere, and my site is just linking to them. Also, they are not copyright infringing. They are just photos of Axl rose that he finds unflattering because he looks fat in them. He is fat. That is why he looks fat. I think it would make more sense for him to eat less and exercise, rather than try to suppress these photos which are going nowhere. Also, wouldn't it make more sense to go after the actual sites hosting the photos, instead of all the thousands of ancillary sites linking to them?"

    MSL: I think I am going to ban you. You contribute nothing to this forum except lies, you browse anonymous like a bitch, and you have threatened legal action against me and my members, and you've compromised my YouTube account. You are a horrible person: a glutton and a sloth, and you don't possess a shred of humility. You have hurt Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses, the band we are all here to follow, and you are guilty of perpetuating falsehoods and revisionist history about same band. Fuck off.

    WELCOME TO AXL'S SAFE HAVEN, A PLACE FOR THE TRUE FANS TO ASK OBJECTIVE QUESTIONS AND/OR MAKE HONEST STATEMENTS IN THE HOPES THAT HE MIGHT READ THEM AND/OR TAKE THEM ON BOARD. I can't promise you all that he would read this, but on the off chance that he does - Let's give our MOST honest objective opinions and questions (without the personal insults). 2 simple favors I ask for those who choose to participate: Please keep out the personal insults (attacking appearance, team brazil etc) Don't repeat the same statements/questions that someone already has in the thread. Please start your question/statement with 'Dear Axl..' At the end of the thread, I'll collate all responses and add them to this post and then we will get our homeboy magisme to get in contact with fernando to expedite a response in case we dont get one in the meantime.

    Hey everyone First of all, Id like to thank each and every one of you. It has been a delight getting to know all of you and discussing processed meats and making hot dog puns with you. I hope my account has brought everyone here together a bit. Now, to get to the meat of the post- Like Bacardi, I went to the hospital recently. This past week, I was just having abdominal pains so I was thinking it was something minor. The pain was getting worse so I opted for the ER instead of an urgent care. Either way, I wasnt too worried. Got some tests, and they stuck an IV in me. Left the next morning and that was that. Well, today I got some pretty life changing news. Im sad to report what it is, but Ill make the best of what time I have left. For those interested in who I really am and what I have,

    Fuck off you deaf, shit, geriatric kangaroo-fister. No one's going to fall for the old "oh look I can sing one of my old songs decently well, given it's the only song I have to sing that night, it's detuned a half-step and I don't even have to stay in key because ac/dc fans are a bunch of mongoloids who think pitchless braying into the mic constitutes a proper performance" routine. Johnson-AC/DC fucking suck. They serve only as a vessel for Axl to unleash the beast he's been holding back ever since he got bored of GNR 10 years ago. To think that we could lose years of potential great performances from Axl in his twilight years because some over the hill old shit wants his job back makes me want to vomit in disgust. AXL/DC IS ALL I HAVE AND THIS OLD FUCK WANTS TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME. PM box is open to those who wish to help "solve" this problem. @8==D

    Remember guys Axl only does sound check when the band is adding a song to the playlist if axl trolls bacardi and plays so fine the last 20 plus years is forgiven.

    I think the forum is doing quite well. The "reunion" is what it is, by its very happening it killed off the Axl vs Slash arguments and "what if" scenarios. We are left with a nostalgia tour to discuss, the same one that has been more or less on the road post CD release. Apart from some "new" old songs in the setlist not much has changed in terms of the gigs. So I don't really see any reason for the D&N section to be booming. There is only so many times you can discuss the same show no matter who is on the stage. A new song/album talk is what will get that section going again. Or the band falling apart again. Take your pick. As for the rest of the forum - it is doing fine. More than fine even. Mafia games are very popular and it is nice to have a forum to discuss whatever the fuck we want to discuss without some condescending social justice warrior breathing down our necks and setting a pack of frumpy harpy mods on us to scold us like bold children. If you want to see what that is like - check out Anything Goes on Mygnr. It is dead. Used to be the most active part of that site but now it is an echo chamber of liberal brainwashing with a handful of posters giving each other the internet equivalent of jazz hands because they shut down and censored the very posters that kept that place alive. It is actually hilarious that a GNR forum is being run like jezebel.com by a Canadian closet case, two womyn from the UK and a handful of beta nerd orbiters. It makes about as much sense as group of Syrian refugees and some Mexican illegal immigrants running a Donald Trump for President campaign.

    Absolutely. It sounds cliche to say this stuff, but he really was an all round great guy. He could be hilarious, and you could have really interesting conversations with him, and he was one of the most down to earth posters I've ever encountered. I can't say I know him as well as others, but I knew him enough that I've not been able to stop thinking about him and his family, particularly his wife, all day. And that'll continue, because he was just a great guy, and for something so horrendously mundane to happen to him is fucking awful. Just fucking awful. And on a somewhat related note, I know at least for me, it brings home the fact that I have absolutely no doubt I could happily hang out with any of you guys. Sure, we all get on some people's tits, more than others, but there's a certain amount of "everyone being stuck under one roof" situation, in which it's difficult to avoid someone you don't like here, and that has a negative impact on interactions. I like to think that most, if not all, of you are good people, and if you're ever round my way, I'd gladly hang out for a bit.
