So if I am understanding this correctly you are tired of no new album, the tour oddness and the music itself? I'd say it's time for a break from GnR.
I am wondering what the soap opera part of the band is. The lineup has been fairly stable since 06 and the only major lineup change is Finck leaving and Ashba being hired. It seems like there were no bad feelings between Finck and GnR, he left when his contract was completed and rejoined Nine Inch Nails, no public fall outs or fights, just business. In need of a guitarist GnR hired Ashba. No problem there, it may have taken a while but they had to find a adequate replacement. Once Ashba was hired and they had time to rehearse GNR went about gigging on a fairly normal basis and continue to do so. That doesn't sound like a soap opera to me.
