From what I understand, they've taken things upon themselves to do shit. He had Soundgarden vids taken down, so I doubt that was at Axl's command. If you have had any interaction with them you know how completely irrational they are.

The username, fwiw, I don't doubt it's been used by more than one person as I've seen drastic changes in personality. At one point, I thought Axl used it on this site.

If this individual's really acting on their own accord to take things down and pretending that they represent the band in doing so, then GN'R ought to go after them in court. False representation, damaging the reputation of GN'R, etc etc.

It affects a few hundred online fans at best, I doubt most people in the wider world are really that bothered.

The band would then go into the newspapers as a band suing a fan claiming to be protecting the band. It'll just create more negativity on all levels. There's no winning this one as far as I can see..

A few hundred fans?
This is the same band that had their video pass a billion views recently on YouTube.

I think you underestimate how many people it effects. You can’t find hardly anything of the band on YouTube of GN’R, and that affects more than a few hundred people.

Beta went on further recently to defend these clowns doing the takedowns, so that just implies to me that they are actually working with the band to do this.

I’m not saying Axl is responsible. But inaction from GN’R and management, makes it seem like they don’t care or want to care about stopping this individual that is doing all this.

And ultimately, it’s us fans that lose out, because like I said, hundreds of great GN’R videos have all but disappeared.

I believe Beta. We all know who's doing it and it's not the band.

The person doing it though, supposedly is doing it FOR the band, and band or management hasn’t done anything to stop them. So Beta can play dumb if she wants, but she’s just as guilty by doing nothing.

And this person has helped remove hundreds of videos that mostly aren’t copyrighted material, and it’s fucked, because all this fantastic fan footage from over the years has all but disappeared.

Only in the land of GN’R does this shit happen...

Besides wanting to know who that woman is in faldor's avatar for research purposes, I wanted to say I didn't hate this performance.  I get the feeling they probably didn't rehearse it too much, at least not everyone together.  I'm only guessing because they stick pretty close to each other and look a little nervous.  So maybe they just need to practice it more and get on the same page.  I'm glad they decided to dust it off and hope they do so with other older songs too.

Ha! That’s Mila Kunis circa 2010 or so. I heard they played it again and it was better the 2nd time. I can’t seem to find any links though. Granted, I just started looking. Don’t people record every song these days?

They do, but there are a couple of fuckwit “fans” and I use that term loosely, that report every single GN’R video uploaded to YouTube to have them taken down.

See the discussion about Beta’s response to see more of this topic.

The irony in this is that GN’R actually posted asking fans to share their live footage for them to compile for the end of the NITL tour, but that very footage is reported and taken down.

It’s so fucking stupid.

It may be 100 years old, but it’s a 100 times better than CD songs

No she didn't.
This current era of GNR is majorly exciting.
Slash and Duff back in the fold. A mixture of Chinese and pre-Chinese material played by probably the best incarnation of the band (musically) that we've seen in years.
The entire 2000 intentions vault appearing online.

GNR rehearsing an unheard CD era song and Slash openly discussing the recording of a new GNR album.

We are at peak GNR right now.

You may find it exciting, but having all this great video footage from over the years, (most of which isn’t copyright) being removed from history is a dumb fuck move.

And if management would stop holding fans in contempt and actually do something about it instead, that’d be great too.

Lol, did we all miss Libertad?

MIKE CLINK is the only answer

Pretty much. I was excited for Libertad when I heard they were working with Brendan, and then it came out sounding like a Liberturd...

Mike Clink is the guy who brought out the best sounds of GN’R in the studio. He most definitely should be involved.

But, as with every poor decision GN’R seem to make these days, he probably won’t be involved...

Please... Metallica would NEVER do this to their fans. GN’R don’t show one ounce of respect to their fans that Metallica do.

Oh and don’t use Napster as an example, that’s a tired, boring argument that hardly compares to 20 year old demos belonging to GN’R being shared.
Metallica we’re trying to protect their own studio quality recorded copyrighted material being shared. And you know what? They were right.

Metallica also tends to sue anything with "Metalli" in its name. Not the best example.
GNR has historically turned a blind eye to bootlegging for the most part. This Rick dude will no doubt be able to grab a GA ticket on the next tour. I can't get too upset if he flaunted this.

Here we go.... Again, another uninformed post with nothing to back up such claims.

Metallica actively encouraged people to bootleg their live shows. And they have every right to protect their brand, just as GN’R do.

You forget that GN’R sue people for using the GN’R name too. It happened recently with a beer named Guns N Rosé
