I know we are not really allowed to like GNR - but fuck it, I do! And the new leaks from ChiDem are pretty good actually - check out BETTER if you can, love that song. Looks like it will be out this year! Serious this time!

They were the first band I listened to when I was about 9-10 years. I guess I owe them something to put me in the right direction.

I just don't really know why people look at you strangely these days when you say you like them....man, they fuckin' ruled the world, at least for 2 years.

And "Appetite for destruction" is for eternity!

GNR was my first real concert, I saw them when I was in 8th grade with Metallica... and it sucked. There was over 3 hours in between set changes, ugh. And each band played less than an hour.

Also, I remember when "You Could Be Mine" was popular and my mom asked me what I wanted for back to school shopping, I said:

1. a purple jean jacket
2. a mesh shirt
3. white biker shorts

I thought Axl looked so cool in that video... fortunately my mom got me jeans and t-shirts instead

Haha that's funny. I like Axl but will never wear spandex ... yuck! But I still do wear flannel - thanks to Cobain for that ;-) Pennyroyal tea anyone?

Yeah....that was the one....where G'n'R didn't even play one song. If they would have played an awesome 2hour set, the would have been the greatest...but that world tour was the beginning of the end.

Don't know why I'm just reading this thread now- weird though- I saw the same tour down in MA. James couldn't play because of his burns- he sang- just didn't play, they had someone else play for him if I remember correctly. Same thing with GnR though- took forever to get on the stage- people were trashing the place- people getting hit in the face with bottles etc. The only show I've been to where I've been a little bit scared, for real. I'll always have a love for them- Axl was hot back then- and boy did he have the moves. ha!

You only have 24 hours to register for the free Dr. Pepper ;-) And Slash is not allowed one! Shackler's Revenge is alright, for a great song check out "Better."

The new album is growing on me, check out 'This I Love' - it's a different album, but actually quite a good one (am talking about Chi Dem!)

I love GnR, and while not as great as the early days I still think Chinese Democracy is a solid album.
