GNR has descended to a bunch of mouthpieces drip-feeding the fans with so-called "plans". None of which have ever transpired. I'm really just getting bored of this constant revolving door of manure. I love GNR, but the band has become a soap opera. A laughing stock of music....
2 years ago, former "spokesman/douche/mouthpiece/just cos Axl couldn't be arsed opening his bloody mouth" Sebatian Bach announced that "Sorry" was the heaviest Doom Metal track he ever heard..... obviously he wasn't in class the day Anathema and My Dying Bride thought us scholars about algebra....
That guy is an idiot. Just check out his episode of MTV Cribs for proof. An idiot, a total idiot!
Bach then proceeds to recount tales of how Axl has 2 albums worth of material "just lying around".....
Since then, Bach has been disposed of....
Enter: Yes-Man, Fanboy, "DJ Ashba"....who now claims there's 3, no less, 3
albums "ready to go".
100% manure. Just release the bloody songs already!!!!
Let the fans decide if it's good enough, or not!
Hell.....if it's that "shit", then invite the fans to remix the tracks the damn songs...and let the best remixes get officially released (a la NIN's Year Zero fan-remix album) online
Same thing goes for the live DVD!
Set up a load of cameras in the arena. Film EVERYTHING. Release the footage online, and let the fans produce it. Once again, a la NIN.
What pisses me off is the fact that Axl decides "this is shit, its not perfect....so no one will ever hear it!!!!!" where I reckon he should just release it (ok, if it's that bad just throw some downloadable mp3s on the GNR site, and let the fans remix/modify if necessary...)
The whole "my way or the highway" vibe that Axl has goin on, sucks! We all love this band, we're starving for more...we really dont care if its deemed as "shite" by Axl, we have brains - let us decide for ourselves...
Axl needs to wake up, cut the crap and give the fans (who have stuck with him through thick and thin) what they want, and what they/we deserve
His approach is overtly selfish imo. All it would take is a blog post saying: "Workin on a new track, something's missing....what do ye think?"
But no..... why would he do that!? Instead, he chooses to disappear off the face of the planet, send a clueless self-promoting "rock star" in to be the voice of the band....who just spouts a few teasing blubberings around "we're working on some really great stuff" "Hey, check out my cool clothes....or my hot chick....or my makeup...all available for affordable prices on my "weird" and "demented" website.
"He's like....such a tortured artist ....and like.....stuff....s
eriously, he can only express himself through his music.... ....like....ommm...
h....mom....look at his cool tats too.....wow, he is so demended.....fighti
ng his demons.....bad childhood..."
I love GNR with everything I got. Hell, I got my ass kicked by scumbag "ravers" when I was 13 cos I was wearing an Appetite T-Shirt, when I should've been sporting a technotronic shell suit...or some shit...
But recently I'm beginning to get slightly annoyed with all this mysterious/soap opera/smoke and mirrors shit.
And, if you are reading this, Axl, cut the bullshit....for once and for all.
I'll conclude by saying..... I've stuck with this band since 1989, but my patience is really beginning to be tested. If the Rock in Rio Ferdinand setlist doesn't contain anything new, I'm done. I'm done with you, I'm done with this circus of a band....and all the nonsense that surrounds it!
Robin was right. He was right about everything! He spoonfed you the best rock track of the 00's, but what did you do?!?!?! Not even a lousy video...no...nothin
g. It just pretty much sums it all up..... endless potential, wasted.
