I dont know if anyone here follows GNR, but they are by far my favorite band. Songs like November Rain and Sweet Child O Mine I can listen to over and over and just appreciate them more and more each time I hear it. Anyway so it hasnt been the original lineup for years now as Slash, Izzy and everyone else has left over time. BTW(Slash, Duff, and Matt Sorum formed a new band with Scott Weiland as lead singer called Velvet revolver). Axl replaced all these people as they left and the reincarnated version of GNR had a tour in 2002 that I was fortunate enough to attend the show in Chicago, but after the New York show, the tour was cancelled for whatever reason. Still no word on a new album, but they did have a show scheduled at I guess the Rock in Rio concert festival at the end of May. Now today I found out that Buckethead has left the band, and that show has been cancelled. I had hope for a long time, but I now must admit that I dont even think the new album will see the light of day. Here is the link to the story, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4632186/
BTW, people can say that GNR died when Slash left the band, but seriously this "new gnr" sounded just as good as the old one. I just wasnt old enough to experiance the old gnr when they were in their prime.

Go big or go home

GNR were a great band, but Axle is such an idiot and psycho that he doesn't have what it takes to actually do some work. It's a waste of talent, because this band had what it takes to continue making great tunes for many years. But GNR has essentially been dead since The Spaghetti Incident CD, in my opinion.

You mean they are still around? I was under the impression that they were long gone.

Normal, GNR is long dead, Axl was just Using his Dilusion.

There has been no GNR for quite some time, in fact, and what Axl is doing is just sad, IMO. He is taking a great name of a once great band and turning it into a sad, laughable waste. He claims that he has an album due, and last I heard it is still rotting on tape, yet all the instruments are recorded, but not one iota or note of vocal. Nothing.

All Axl is doing is parading four other guys out so that he can cling on to a long dead dream.

LOL Freshlove, you should check out http://www.metal-sludge.com its a site dedicated to 80's hair bands. They interview people from those bands and even Nikki Sixx and Tracii Guns.

On topic now. Come on they are just dead now? The only reason the label put out GNR Greatest Hits(which of course went against Axl) was to help recover some of the costs of Chinese Democracy, which has amounted to over 13 million since 99. Eventually it will just be released un-finished and there is no way they will recover that amount.

I agree with Captaingomes

GNR were the best rock band of the late 80's early 90's. It was a good mix of talents, but Axl hasn't got what it takes to produce consistently, he just does not function that way. Misses all kinds of concerts and opportunities. Also, I believe slash is the best guitarist because ALL his solos in GNR are deep. But out alone, we didn't see the same (Slash's Snakepit). Therefore I think he produced such a great output only under the pressure from Axl. Left to his own devices, he prefers doing a bit of less effort, doing gigs with his band here and there, and just live comfortably. That is why they clashed, Axl and Slash. And GNR died eversince the spaghetti incident album, which was crap.

Today, Chinese Democracy can't be such a good album, because the solos and drums of gnr simply aren't there, and what talents are gonna join Axl's dream today? Especially that he always wants to take most of the credit for himself, and do things his way.

I could write a ridiculously long post on my thoughts of Guns, but I won't!

All I have to say is, Guns N' Roses have been dead since 1995 when the lineup as we knew it split for good.

This new "Guns N' Roses" is NOT Guns N' Roses! They might legally carry the name, but they disgrace what the former Guns once were, and that was the world's greatest rock band of all time, IMO!


Think before you type!

I agree with you that the old Guns were the greatest rock and roll band ever, but I dont think the band died in 1995. The only part I think that the new GNR was lacking was attitude. The old GNR had the attitude that they were out to conquer the world and nothing was going to stop them and that made them great. As far as sound goes, the new GNR did sound just as good as the old one. If you go to the site http://www.newgnr.com and click on some of the short video clips of various giutarists doing solos, in my opinion they sounded just as good as Slash's solos, if not better, granted it did take 3 guitarists to achieve this rather then just one. I think the Chinnese Democracy had potential as I heard a couple of songs of off it (Madagascar, The Blues, and Chinnese Democracy) and I thought they were each pretty decent. Madagascar I believe had the most potential to become something great.

Did you not see him on the MTV awards? He looked terrible.

I like GNR, but Axl is a loose cannon who doesn't give a shit about his fans. I'll take Motley Crue anyday.

Megadeth was much better than GNR, the Charles Manson incident says it all.
Why would anyone in their right mind, make him rich?
