  1. Drunk, and with a moment of inspiration, I made a topic about GnR's 87 Ritz gig. I mentioned the uploader on youtube, and said "fuck you" to whoever was taking down videos and applying pressure to this site. Welp, several people said "good job dumbass, now it'll get taken down." I was under the misguided delusion it would stay, since the video was not monetized, it was not an official release, and the video had a message saying it was not for commercial/moneymaking purposes. Well, my naïveté shown through in vivid colors, and the 87 Ritz video was killed. And it's my fault. And I'm sorry. The Ritz '87 gig is a show that every GnR fan should watch at least once. While the 88 Ritz gig is special, the 87 one is special not only because of its rarity, but because it was a solid gig with the original 5 in their prime. I'm an idiot. I want to fight back, but I can't really do much. My two ideas are have this site moved to a host that won't give a shit, and to find a site that GnR videos can be uploaded to. All for spite against whoever's doing this. And for the fans. We've endured enough abuse. Anyway, I'm sorry. I really am. Go ahead, you can rip on me.

    Big Red Wants You To Vote Blue

    To be fair, Vince did the MTV interview challenging Axl to a fight in the most pussy-assed way possible.

    Happy Birthday Ashba 🤟

    ban pls
  4. Videos are being removed solely because they are appearing on this site. Is there anything we can do? Is this the new reality? Are you fucking kidding me? This is it? We just take it up the ass from Team Brazil?
  5. DJ is to blame for Axl's eyeliner. That fucking twat waffle Ashba. I will admit, Axl needs to listen to Slash's advice about how to be "cool". Slash is cooler than Axl, there I said it, fuck off.

    Is it DJ Ashba's fault that Axl wears eyeliner now?

    Well that's not the same as wearing it all the time, like part of a post-shower routine. Like DJ Assba.

    November 7, 1991: Izzy Stradlin left Guns N 'Roses

    There are people on this board who talk mad shit about Izzy. Oh he can't play, he can't remember the parts, he can't do this or that, overrated, not that good. They're all morons. He was the anchor from which Axl and Slash tethered, musically.

    Is it DJ Ashba's fault that Axl wears eyeliner now?

    It's Darren Jay Ashba's fault that Axl brought the eyeliner back. Axl should've consulted Slash for current standards.
  9. Upon examining the lyrics of the widely circulated leak, it seems like maybe Axl is talking about food here. Is The General Axl's homage to General Tso's chicken?

    GNFNR 2016 Tour Thread - Not In This Lifetime...

    It started happening a while ago. Any video posted here would get taken down. Then it escalated and JB got kicked off the web host. Now, we can not post any videos whatsoever.

    Axl's Straight-Up BEST Lyrics

    I always felt Locomotive, excepting the chorus, had pretty strong stuff lyrically. Maybe that's just the gnr nerd in me though.

    Anyone get the Fat Axl book yet?

    Thank you. Admittedly, I just wanted to bump this thread because I think more people should be aware of this book. But it's good to know it is on ebay. I am going to order it for Christmas.
  15. I get where you guys are coming from, but I believe there is a strong chance that his videos won't get taken down. I believe he's done his homework on fair use. It says at the beginning of the 87 Ritz video that "This DVD was created for trade via fans and collectors of live music. Any intent to sell or market this DVD was not the intention of its creator and is not to be permitted." I know that may not mean shit, but it does in some ways bolster his case to get the video reposted if it does indeed get taken down and he challenges it. We'll see what happens. Me posting the channel name here was indeed a challenge to whoever is narc sniping from afar. And if the vids do get taken down, it's not out of the realm of possibility he'll get them put back up after he challenges the removal. I guess I don't subscribe to the fact that we can't even mention anything youtube related now out of fear. We have to keep this kind of shit secret? If I turn out to be the asshole who's the catalyst for all GNRontour's videos being taken down, then I will feel bad and stupid. Until then... ...as of right now, Id36RUfZM6E (Ritz 87) is still up.
  16. It appears as if GNRontour.com's youtube channel is not being censored or its videos killed. So whoever you are, whoever has been filing complaints on this site for youtube videos, has been getting youtube videos taken down, here's what I have to say to you: fuck you. Fuck you. Check out the Ritz 87 video that GNRontour.com has posted on youtube. It's pretty sweet, other than the 80s coked up camera trick effect shit. EDIT: I'm sorry. I'm an idiot. I feel bad. The video has been taken down. I thought it could withstand the onslaught. I was naive. However, this is the first time I've seen "This content is not available on this country domain due to a legal complaint.". That could mean it's being challenged/evaluated right now. Again, my bad. *hangs head*

    Was Clarke really invited?

    He's the FUCKING SPAGHETTI INCIDENT RHYTHM GUITARIST. Fuck him. Watch Rockstar Supernova and tell me he isn't a douche. And I'll write all the fucking walls of text I want, assholes. Don't forget, you're here too motherfucker. On a fan site for a band who is sanctioning repercussions for posting fucking youtube videos, and whose singer sounds like Mickey fucking Mouse and every single person involved with that band is in denial and/or is scared to tell Axl to his face that he can't sing anymore (except AC/DC songs). So, I hope you see the absurdity here. This site, a bastion of fandom for a long-deceased band, is populated by bitter people who were made bitter by one man. One man. Gilby Clarke.

    Was Clarke really invited?

    I've always hated Gilby. I believe he was chosen so that live crowds would think Izzy was there. He contributed nothing of importance to the band. He was, for all intents and purposes, an employee. And I agree, he's respected for having been in GnR. But he didn't really contribute anything to GnR. He didn't write any great songs like Izzy did. He was there as a stand-in. I guess where my hatred for him started was when he was on Rockstar Supernova. I'm not sure if you've watched that show, but that is the precise moment where I lost respect for him. Like I said earlier in the thread, he was up there with Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee. He was NOT in the same league as those guys- not even close. But he was up there pretending like he was. That's where my issue with him began. Prior to Rockstar Supernova, he was just another ex-GnR guy that was pretty cool. Also, not many people hate him on here. It's pretty much just me and like 3 other people. So we should be clear about that. I respect the fact you disagree. I tried to present my case above and I understand if you don't accept it. I feel like you're too hard on Axl sometimes. You love bringing up him beating up women, but if you feel so strongly and righteously that way, then why do you follow the band? I'm not trying to get into a big thing here. I'm just making an observation. I hope Gunner doesn't jump in. I'm sure you do too.

    The definitive tour? lol AFD or gtfo

    Was Clarke really invited?

    Remember when Gilby was on Rockstar Supernova? The fucking stand-in Izzy-lookalike who played on the covers album gets the same billing as Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee. He has milked his time as a touring employee guitarist more than any other human being on the planet.

    Was Clarke really invited?

    Richard Fortus is and always shall be the best knock-off Izzy look-alike in the band. Giliby was nothing more than an employee, just like that poodle-haired bitch Matt Sorem.

    Big Red Wants You To Vote Blue

    Didn't Axl say on Jimmy Kimmel that he didn't vote, ever? Another example of "do as i say, not as I do." Why don't you stick to what you're good at Axl, watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and making people wait for you to show up on stage.

    Is Axl banging Beta?

    Serious question. Is that's what's going on? Is there some Freudian Oedipus shit going on? Please share your insider info. Has Axl tapped the Beta?
