I've had a talk (video/audio) with MSL. Nice guy after all. Actually feel bad that I've said the contrary previously.
Like Troccoli, I think those two are real passionate Gn'R fans. They have whatever they have.
Won't disclose what we discussed about but I believe his version of the facts. Matches most of the things we have discussed here. And to be frank, Rick's audio really says it all.
MSL appears to be a nice, decent, reasonable guy. What really leads me to believe him is a "small" detail (that I can't make public out of respect) he had no interest in giving me (and while saying that, he probably won't even know himself what is this "small detail") before we talked, and it was true. It genuinely surprised me, I thought he made up something. But he didn't. So he's clear in my book.
Apparently he really didn't sell anything, despite me thinking the contrary previously. He may or may not have stuff but that's another subject. He isn't like Rick or Walker, that's for sure.
I respect his position. Cool guy. (and no I didn't ask/wasn't sent any song/wasn't bribed). He deserves his name to be cleared off the fuckers list.
