I wouldn't count on a reunion. More like Slash playing with Axl. They both have albums to release in the near future. And MSL and Jim called this a long time ago that everyone is leaching now.

Can you provide a link where either MSL or Jim specifically stated that Axl and Slash were communicating again? Don't recall ever seeing this. The hints were there for everybody to see looking back now, so I don't understand why them 'calling this' a long time ago was never noticed by the rest of the internet smile

The major hint that Jim dropped publicaly was saying "hell had frozen over". This was about a year ago. I don't think he ever explicitly said Axl and Slash had patched things up, but I remember catching on to what he was implying at the time. Recently, a few folks are admitting that Jim told them privately.

I think it's legit. The most telling thing for me - Jim has always been very team Axl, and about a year ago, he started being pro-Slash as well.

There were strong hints when Slash left Pearla and started dating Meegan and Erin started coming around again.

Perla and Beta are both cancerous influences with some shitty agendas.

Of course it wont be the same. Anyone who expects it to be is delusional. The world would just like to see the real thing one last time before we're all dead.

If you think these guys in their 50s cant kick some ass, here's a reminder on how much ass the Stones kicked on this song when they're nearing 70.....



Slash, Izzy, and Duff could come up with a similar track in an hour. Axl just has to shut up and sing! 15

I just saw Slash and for a 50 something he still has tons of energy on stage.  If it were to ever happen I would be there. I would need to be there. And odds are, old or not they will still melt some faces.

I'm sure a reunited GN'R would do fine in the studio. I was thinking more along the lines of live performance. Last time I saw any live footage of the Stones, Keith couldn't even play a coherent version of Start Me Up at the Super Bowl.

Stones on guitar has been bad since Mick Taylor left.

The band would be good live. I worry for Axl but my God I want to see it.

ID--

I don't have a problem and certainly not with you.  I read my post again from last night and I guess it comes off a tad harsh but parts of that was sarcasm which you didn't detect. Obviously I don't consider myself an insider.  You and I have swung from the nuts of the 01-02 era together for what, 11 years? A bit late in the game to get our panties in a wad, especially over Slash or supposed insiders. 19

Obviously there aren't rules about what you can talk about. As you know, up until about a month ago I had been MIA from the GNR world for a couple years. When DJ bailed you brought me up to date on the parts of the fiasco I missed.

Of course you've contributed to the forum. Not just this one either. Shit, how many times do I have to name drop you as one of my all time favorite posters for you to take the hint? 13

The VMA post was just a bit of reminiscing. What do you have against reminiscing?


Gong- Always liked you as well but that was definitely a low blow. Your sites is one of the couple GNR sites I've been lurking at since coming back and you and your members talk about GNR Truth a shitload more than they are discussed here.



Pasnow-- Everyone went ape shit over that. The haters ALWAYS tried to downplay that fact but no matter what gets said, they just have to dance around it.  Axl literally had the world by the balls for about a week or two. I realize not all the buzz was good but a buzz is a buzz. Everyone was talking about him again.  You have to strike at moments like that and hindsight tells us this was second to last chance saloon for him. Some may even say it was THE last chance to be taken seriously with a new lineup. Could easily make a case for that.

Atari- That's a brain teaser for sure. My take on it is Loder made some comment to him backstage regarding requests(probably a joke from Axl to Loder) and Fallon just ran with it.

I miss Loder. Biggest Axl/GNR nutswinger in the media. I'll never forget when he threw in the towel in 06. Newer fans of GNR didn't give a shit but us old timers took it as a bad sign.


Back on topic.... if these two were going to make up I wish Axl had NOT put This I Love on CD. The song is a little too cheesy for my tastes(he's trying to out Manilow Manilow) but it just begs for a Slash solo.  He's certainly smart enough to know that and he probably hesitated to put it on there for that reason.

Its all cool, man. Sorry for the misunderstanding. smile
