Guns N’ Roses got turned down by Reading/Leeds

Last time Axl Rose and his GNR tribute band played the two festivals, he got on stage late and pissed off a lot of fans. Because they were late and had their lineup cut short, Axl just took it out on the promoters. Well, surprise surprise, they will not book GNR again…

I’m just gonna paste something from Blabbermouth, cause why wouldn’t I?

Melvin Benn, chief executive of organizers Festival Republic, who had previously said that he would definitely book the band again, told NME.com that he would not invite GUNS again in the band’s current incarnation.

“I wouldn’t have the current lineup, certainly not at the moment. It doesn’t feel right,” he said.

When asked if he’d consider booking the band’s original lineup, Benn replied, “Of course, if it was the original lineup, I would definitely consider it and if they could tell the time, it would be fantastic. With the original lineup, it would be something very special. We’d have to give them all a watch each, but we’d certainly try to get them if they reformed.

Come on, Melvin. Who doesn’t want his festivals delayed by at least an hour and then cut short because of the curfew? You should bring these guys back!


Slash wants to befriend Axl again. Awww

Look, Slash wants a GNR reunion, period. It’s all a question of getting Axl the right amount of cash. I called this eventual GNR reunion, and I stick by my prophecies. Mark my words, guys, they will reunite.

So guess what Slash has been saying in the press again… Positive things about Axl.

When I see footage of Guns N’ Roses, I see that fucking hunger and attitude. You could not fuck with those five guys. It was just raw. It was this lean, hungry thing on its way up. It was as sincere as any rock ‘n’ roll that I’ve ever heard, and I’m proud of that.”

If he was any more transparent, you could literally walk through him… But he’s not done…

The split between Axl and I was a quiet one. But because there was so much attention on the breakup — and are we going to get back together? — it got built up into this monster that led to a kind of animosity that wasn’t the focus for me. Neither one of us wants to be down each other’s throats for no reason. At this point, I’m trying to put it to rest.

Translation: The feud happened long ago, an original GNR reunion would sell a lot of tickets kick ass, Axl, reach out to me, let’s get back together.

I don’t blame him though, I passed on the GNR-tribute-band that is the current GNR lineup, but I’d kill to see the original lineup live. They were pretty awesome.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Bumblefoot and think the guys are doing okay now, it’s just the magic of the original band that can’t be replaced, not even if it’s replaced by better musicians. Hell, DJ Ashba wants a reunion as well.



Axl loves his fans

Axl Rose sure loves his fans. He loves them so much, he points at them and has security kick them out.

I have no idea what that guy did, but I’m gonna take a wild guess: He had a banner saying ‘Ginger have no souls and show up late!’.

Again, just a guess.

DJ Ashba will help Axl

“Help Axl with what exactly?”, I hear you cry. Help him by reading a bedtime story at night? Help him plait his hair?

Nope, according to a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, DJ Ashba is ready to help Axl with the next Guns N’ Roses album. Well, you are the guitarist right Ashba? I mean, that is your job right? Unless what you’re saying is the current iteration of Guns N’ Roses is actually an Axl Rose solo project masked as Guns N’ Roses, but that couldn’t be right, could it?

Either way, be prepared to spend the next 14 years working on it Asha.


Axl has a sense of humor

Our friend Bumblefoot recently revealed in an interview that Axl is a funnyman.

He’s got a great sense of humor. A real ball-buster. Sometimes he’ll tell jokes into our in-ear monitors while we’re tryin’ to take a solo, he’s fucked me up a few times, haha…

It doesn’t surprise me… One look at the classic ‘November Rain’ video and you can totally see Axl’s humorous side, right? That video isn’t serious, is it?

Here’s what I wrote about it in an older article:

So the video is basically about Axl’s wedding to some bimbo. They talk in a bar, whatever, then on the day of the wedding, Slash is the best man (irony ftmfw). He forgot the ring though, shit… Oh wait, some other dude has it on his pinky. Day saved.

Axl gets married, Slash walks out in a rage. As he walks out, his guitar magically appears as he exists the church and the solo starts. Helicopter shot. Then (november) rain hits the wedding, everyone hides, blah blah.

Axl’s wife is dead. Wait, what? Axl wakes up from a dream. Was it all a dream? No wait, he’s still at the funeral. This doesn’t make any fucking sense, whatsofuckingever.
