  1. You could still shit on Axl in this theoretical music forum. I personally hope Axl genuinely dies so what's left of the Vault can open and I wish the guy would otherwise just go away and I actually pretty much hate GN'R and think I wasted way too many years being a fan.
  2. I think it's obvious most here, outside of when something leaks, aren't really happy with or fond of GN'R anymore. GN'R has become pretty old and stale if you consider it. What is there really to talk about? The newest tour? Fat Axl memery? "New" songs which are only leaks of 20 year old demos? Duff's Tenderness? This is a forum dedicated to a band whose heyday was almost 30 years ago. Whose last period of really intense or original activity was nearly 30 years ago. A band which is considered really only a few steps above Motley Crue in popular memory - they had some great songs but most of the public considers them the last gasp of Hair Metal. A band who has been little more than depressing to follow for the better part of a quarter of a century. Why not slowly transform this forum into a mainstream music/pop culture sort of forum - sort of along the lines of the SteveHoffman forum, but less self seriousness?
  3. Brian Jones also was really inspirational in rockstar fashion: Kurt Cobain would become famous for wearing a modernized set of very similar shades in the 90s He was recognized as one of the leading style icons in rock during his lifetime. He was also a close friend of Jimi Hendrix and plays on "All Along the Watchtower" and was heavily admired by Jim Morrison, who wrote a poem on the day of his death memorializing him
  4. 1. Keith (Keith wrote the majority of their best song's lyrics and melodies on his own) 2. Mick 3. Brian (in terms of overall musical contribution, plus getting the band off the ground, naming it, etc, played also on 12 albums more than any other second guitarist) 5. Nicky Hopkins (co-wrote a lot of songs without being credited and was basically the unofficial 6th member) 6. Mick Taylor (mainly for guitar solos live - he doesn't contribute all that much on the studio albums; he co-wrote a few ballads and went uncredited) 7. Ian Stewart 8. Bill Wyman 9. Charlie Watts 10. Ronnie Wood GNR 1. Izzy 2. Slash 3. Axl 4. Duff 5. Steven 6. Matt 7. Dizzy
  5. original release cover intended cover Considered the Stones' "return to roots" record, recorded between the spring and early summer of 1968, but not released until December 1968 due to fighting with the record label over the album cover, Beggar's Banquet was released during a tumultous time in the band's history. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Brian Jones had all been arrested the year prior on drug charges and all narrowly avoided prison; Brian would be arrested again in May during the recording sessions for the album. The album was the first to feature Jimmy Miller as the producer; he would go on to produce all Stones records until 1973's Goat's Head Soup. The album was the last full release to feature band founder Brian Jones (he would play on only two songs on Let it Bleed), and he features on 8 out of 10 songs here. The period in which the album was produced was a weird time for the band. They had been off the road for a year and a half, and in that time division had sprung up in the group: Keith Richards stole Brian Jones' girlfriend Anita Pallenberg, who then went on to star with Mick Jagger in Performance in the Autumn of 1968. By the time of the record's release, all three members were not on speaking terms and Mick Jagger was considering a solo career. During this time Keith Richards began using heroin, which would soon become a habit he would be unable to break, becoming increasingly addicted to it throughout the next decade. All in all, despite these problems, it's considered a masterpiece. The album was not supported with a tour, but with a filmed TV performance in December 1968 meant to be shown on the BBC, entitled The Rolling Stones' Rock N' Roll Circus with various artists. Due to Jagger being unhappy with the Stones' performance, it was not released publicly until 1996. Album and associated singles: 1. "Sympathy for the Devil" 2. "No Expectations" 3. "Dear Doctor" 4. "Parachute Woman" 5. "Jigsaw Puzzle" Side two 1. "Street Fighting Man" 2. "Prodigal Son" 3. "Stray Cat Blues" 4. "Factory Girl" 5.

  6. Probably LA where he got his wigs in 2001
  7. It’s 99. In the 00 interview (conducted probably in late 99) he was described as having mid length Prince Valiant hair much like the pic with Critter, and he didn’t even meet critter until early 99. The pix are from his annual Halloween Party. Also in early pic from 1995 he is wearing a wedding ring. Not the case in the 99 pix. Also has a fatter or more botoxed face in 99 consistent with how he looks in 00 as opposed to 95 where he’s much slimmer and all natural.
  8. The pic I posted is from 1999 because in one of the other photos from the same day, the guy who posted the picture, and who is in it, identified the middle guy as Critter, the record producer. Axl only began working with him in 1999: this is 1995. July or August. Santa Monica guitar show. You can tell he looks slimmer in the face, like the UYI era Axl but with shorter hair:
  9. I voted for Trump only because his name wasn't Hillary Clinton. I don't worship him. I think he's a fuckin idiot but at least he's not one of the current Democrats.
  10. I'm just curious cause the term is thrown around a lot here and elsewhere. It's more just curiosity. I personally don't care.
  11. Who do I worship, who's my favorite? I don't worship anyone. I think certain of them are interesting. Really the only two Presidents I like are JFK, Jerry Ford, and Reagan. Worship no one, though.
  12. During a campaign event in Texas, Joe Biden told a 10-year-old girl that "I’ll bet you’re as bright as you're good-looking" before taking her by the hand to present her to the press and standing behind her with his hands on her shoulders. [...] He then turned to the girl and said: "I'll tell you what, honey. What I'm going to do, if you give me an address, I'm going to write you a longer answer and tell you the exact things I would do, OK? OK? Promise? I’ll bet you’re as bright as you're good-looking. I'll tell you, I'll tell you what. What's your favorite subject?" When her teacher said "journalism," he joked: "Oh! Whoa! I'd better me more circumspect in my answers." Taking the girl by the hand, he took her to the back of the hall and indicated the reporters: "Washington Post, New York Times, all those guys. You go back." He stood behind the girl, keeping his hands on her shoulders as he spoke: "By the way, that's one of the things that's dangerous. They'll tell you, I'm not always their favorite subject but the truth of the matter is the reason we are who we is called a free press, continue to denigrate..." After Biden returned to the front, the announcer told the girl: "You're going to get an internship from the Washington Post, the New York Times, MSNBC." Biden interjected, "If that doesn't work, come work for me." http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/joe-biden-tells-10-year-old-girl-ill-bet-youre-as-bright-as-you-are-good-looking
