He could easily throw the fanbase a bone and play one new song. I really don't think that's an extreme request. Even if it's a throwaway song that he has no intention of putting on a record. It's sickening how starved gn'r fans are for a single morsale of new material.

That's the depressing bit, right?

Leaving the band name issue out of this, Ax currently has a more than proficient lineup behind him, a group that genuinely seems to like one another and would certainly have a good album or two under their belts. It's way better in terms of chemistry / skill than most backing bands for lead singers and a lot more than what he deserves at this point. He rewards them by doing fuck all aside touring. Coward; he could easily do a new song or two again live, to test the waters and allow the band to feel smug about playing new stuff they created as a unit.

Absolutely. These guys are dedicated and professional musicians who want to deliver and do deliver. They save the show and Axl's ass. If the delivered only on Axl's level, the fans would eat them alive after 3 songs. They cloak the weakest point. Ain't it funny that we still have the debate that this isn't GN'R cause the players changed, when the biggest hiatus is Axl himself?

It's not Guns N' Roses because Axl's not giving them a chance to be Guns N' Roses. This is true to all post-93 lineups; key players on CD were absent by the time the album was out; they'd had to settle to be an AFD tribute band, the current lineup is a CD/AFD tribute band. That ain't right when taking into account the work they put up into this band.

Axl may not owe the public another album, but he sure as shit owes one to the current lineup.

We should make a GNREvo banner of this and take to the next legs of the Cashagraboldmanwithacane tour...

Everything else was very nice.

Axl sounded like shit. His look and moves were also ridiculous. He really needs to retire or start working on his voice and stamina. He should have years ago. I'd prefer a playback performance over his live singin' right now. He's awful.

The band was really great though. Very great. They deserve and need to hire a better singer to form a super tribute band. Or a new one that makes and releases music.

16 glad to see the response to the part I bolded is more accepted these days. I've been saying this for YEARS. I said it so long ago and people bashed me and flamed me and gave me negative karma 14  Fact is tis band deserves better than Axl Rose as their singer.  He's definitey the weak link and the guy who's suffocating the entire thing.

Hopefully they don't add the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame thing again to the opening title screens like they did the last trailer for the 02 show. Sounds like things are shaping up with this film though.
