The impression i got was:

That he's feeling he and the band are about the fans, but everyone else around them is about making as much money as possible. eg the business and managment people etc.

In particular he's annoyed about one of the secret shows, as the tour was for fans but this was added in for profit and he wasn't told. It might be ok except that he he wasn't well, it required travel, and was scheduled in a way that caused excessive strain on his voice (too close to other gigs). and thus it was scheduled to get priority over the proper stadium gigs, which he wasn't happy about - but the business types didn't care or think of it.

That situation was then made worse by excessive press covrage of the show he already wasn't happy about, thus taking the focus of the real point of the tour - which was the tour for the fans in brazil. Thus - he's pretty pissed at the business types, but reassuring the normal people the tour was really scheduled for them and not for the corporate interests that are fucking with it/being talked about in the media.

Or that's what I think it means anyway...don't mean to put words in axl's mouth.

This sounds good to me and you are probably right on the money.   Thank you!

From Tommy

From GNR:

Thank YOU! São Paulo #GNR FANS http://tl.gd/gi5io  (via @axlrose). RIO! Do you know where the fuck we are!?! C U tonight!    about 3 hours ago   via web   

From Ron:

Great time at the show in SP last night! What was that, like 50,000 people? No, not just 50,000 people, 50,000 BRAZILIANS - that means as much screamin' and singin' as 100,000 in most other places, haha. Went back to the hotel, packed, ate, and flew to Rio - gonna try and get a few hours rest and let the feet-knees-legs-back-neck-n-head heal a little, then head to the venue. Congrats to contest winner #2, Carlos - see you tonight at the show! http://www.baldfreak.com/contest.html

I find it funny Axl, Ron, Tommy, and the GNR twitter all tweeted within an hour of each other. Tweet party?

who gives a fuck? Seriously...

I'm guessing myself and the couple other people discussing it here could be thrown into the "care" column

without saying it, I sort of meant that Gnr just played to about 50,000 people and there is absolutely no one talking about that....this board immediately jumps on the insignificant crap that constantly surrounds Axl. He is on tour, is showing up at the scheduled shows, the band is kicking ass....yet the convo revolves around a tweet that is complete nonsense and just rambling rock star crap.:peace: I still luv ya Russ.

Axl is always one scream/growl away from blowing it out.....yes, I am a little worried. The hard partying doesn't help.
