  1. Yeah, those are ropey too, I'll give you that. But not half as ropey as some of his performances of those same songs in 2017/18. It's one of those things where your heart sank when you watched it back in 2012, thinking "man, Axl sounds like shit" and then six years later you realise how there's always new depths of shit Axl can stoop to. 2012 versions of RQ, Catcher and TIL are inconsistent and weak, but not utterly dreadful. 2017/18 versions are unlistenable from start to finish with no redeeming parts whatsoever. 2011/12 was the first cancer diagnosis and you think "how the fuck am I gonna get through this". 2017/18 was when you found out it was terminal and started regurgitating faeces from your mouth, begging for the sweet mercy of death.
  2. 2012 Axl sounds a whole lot better than 17-18 reunion Axl, imo. At least a good half of his vocals on that DVD are passable, with NR and YCBM being the only truly offensive vocals in the set. By many of the shows in 2017-18, a good three quarters of the set was unlistenable. He made a marked improvement vocally this year, imo, even if the setlist is as dull as dishwater. 17-18 was truly the nadir. Excruciating vocals and an embarassment all round.
  3. magisme, do you also wear scarves in non-winter seasons, carry a man bag and possess a man bun? Radiohead are strictly hipster music.
  4. Maybe you just don’t understand the complexity and sophistication of DJ’s playing?
  5. The walking definition of mindless shredding, tasteless showboating with no sense of feel, melody or phrasing.
  6. @Bill Brasky what's coming first? Album or EP? I hate the EP idea, it's such a limp dick of an idea for a band who haven't released a studio album in 11 years and a lineup who haven't recorded new music together in almost 30yrs.
  7. Whats the word on these emails that supposedly leaked? MyGNR are anticipating a shitstorm and have banned discussion on it. Anyone know what this is about?
  8. His departure letter was the biggest crock of shit. It was his way of saving face by pretending he wasn’t given his marching orders and that he was leaving of his own accord. Some fans still believe to this day that the half a billion dollar grossing NITL tour wouldn’t have gone ahead if DJ hadn’t of “left” in 2014. I have a plastic frying pan to sell these people.
  9. Playing from the soul doesn't really mean a lot when your primary concern in life is flogging your Ashba Swag tat and securing the next Monster drinks contract. You have to actually have a soul to play from it. DJ Ashba is like gingers: soulless.
  10. You put yourself out there, insert yourself into a pre-established, much loved rock band and can't back it up with the chops, you bet ya ass people are gonna roast you for it.
