Let me ask you this insides, did you ever actually see the 2000-2002 band or are you just going by what youve seen on the internet? I have seen the illusion era, 2000 era, 2006 era, and the current line up and the current band is the best since the illusion days as far as providing a guns n roses experience when you see them live. And honestly the 2000 era was the worst in that reguard. I respect what every person brought to chinese democracy, and will always appreciate them for that, but thats about it. I would like them to release some of the left over tracks for the next album, but I also want new tracks from the new guys, maybe half and half. I wanna see what these guys can do, cause I bet it will be awesome!!!
To put it in retrospect, 2002 gnr was one of the worst concerts ive ever been to but the 2011 gnr was one of the best.
