Man, Guns N' Roses used to be sort of bad-ass.

That video is not a fair criticism of Van Halen's 2007 reunion tour. What happened was the synth playback was triggered at the wrong frequency—it should've been at 44.1K but was played back at 48K, ab

I will fight anyone who doesn't agree that Appetite is one of the greatest rock n' roll records of all time. What will be playing in the background of said fight? That's right- It's So Easy will be

It was on their second album and this band has always been fucking horrible. One of the worst. Michael Richards wasn't a writer for Seinfeld, so how is that comparison supposed to work???

They were a awesome live band, i'd see slash jump off top risers about 7 foot freefall and land, and not miss a fucking note.. they were the fucking awesome nuts live band.. and soundgarden that year wasn't too bad either. it was weird seeing them in a venue that big when only a few years earlier i had seen them in a club of maybe 400 people. i won't dare watch them (even though it's not guns n roses anymore) again.. it would taint the impression i had of them live. i want my memories of them live as they are..

My dad kinda looks like Slash. No lie. I need to look through my computer when I get home for a photo.

I will back you on this, Nicole. I remember you posting a pic of your pops in a Slayer t-shirt. He was a total ringer for Slash.

I seem to remember this picture - wasn't there a pony involved? Or a motorcycle or something?

Regardless, Nicole's dad is a badass.

Read Slash's book. Even if you don't like G'nR or anything Slash has ever been involved in. It's one hell of an interesting read.

This was a great read. I really couldn't put it down. I got answers to questions I always had. Live Like a Suicide was a fake live EP, Slash drew the logo with the two revolvers facing away, he was very involved with all the imaging and T-shirt designs. Sly Stalone did PCP in Duff's bathroom??

Highly recommend this book.

Anyone any thoughts on the probable reunion?

I think it's a terrible idea that can only be motivated by money. I saw them in August 1991 just before the Use Your Illusion records came out and I couldn't think of a worse way of spoiling the memory of my first ever live concert than seeing this. I don't understand why anyone who saw them live before 1993 would want to see it.

 

And so I can post this somewhere, here's a very good reason why reunions are a bad idea:

I first saw GnR in 86 and they blew me away. Everything about them was raw as f*ck. I'd probably be interested in a reunion if Izzy and Duff were involved. If it's the Axl and Slash show it will suck. The biggest thing for me will be the cost of the ticket, which will probably be stupid.

 

BTW, I did see Van Halen on their most recent tour and I have to say that it was a damn good time. I didn't expect much, but Dave was on fire and it was a party.
