Guns N’ Roses targets Trump with new shirt: ‘Live N’ Let Die with COVID 45’
BY MIKE STUNSON
MAY 14, 2020 08:54 AM , UPDATED 9 HOURS 56 MINUTES AGO
A new shirt being sold by rock band Guns N’ Roses appears to take aim at President Donald Trump and his coronavirus response.
The band’s new shirt reads “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45,” appearing to mock the president’s trip to an Arizona factory producing N95 masks earlier this month. While Trump toured the facility, he was shown not wearing a mask while “Live and Let Die” blared over the building’s speakers, McClatchy News reported.
The audio of the hit song drowned out Trump speaking to workers at the factory, video shows. Many people criticized Trump for not wearing a mask
Fernando was also recently chatting on discord for around 2 hours with fans, and seems genuinely interested in improving band/fan relations. He was absolutely grilled by some fans, but he took it all on the chin, and showed a fair bit of humility through it all.
Honest question: How do we know it was really him? Did anyone see him on video? Hate to be a skeptic, but there are so many rumors and outright falsehoods flying around with his band, it's hard to know what to believe.
Moving forward, he truly believes that we would have new GN’R music by now if it wasn’t for this pandemic.
I'm calling B.S. They've had 12 years since the release of ChiDem to release any new studio recordings. Even a single song. Blaming this virus is a dodge.
Well, at least we now have a t-shirt to commemorate the event.
If only the band was as quick to release new music ...

'Live and Let Die' blares as Trump tours mask factory, without mask
By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Tuesday, May 5, 2020
President Trump visited Honeywell’s mask-making factory Tuesday, but the choice of music raised some eyebrows.
A clip posted to YouTube by the PBS NewsHour shows Mr. Trump walking through the Arizona facility without a mask to the song “Live and Let Die.”
The song was initially a hit for Wings as the theme to the eponymous James Bond movie and was remade by Guns N Roses in 1991. It was the latter version that echoed through the factory as Mr. Trump talked to Honeywell executives and workers.
Liberal commentators called the music choice — the song was once banned by Clear Channel in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — bizarre and insensitive, given the magnitude of the coronavirus crisis, which has killed more than to 70,000 Americans.

We found out recently that the title of the second album was originally going to be P.R.L., a fact mentioned but buried in a mistranslation of a 2001-02 article.
Wow, I had not realized that, James. What article was it? Is there a scan someplace? Really interesting discovery.
