Waxl hired a shitty guitarist with long hair and made him wear a mask and bucket on his head in order to trick people into thinking it was Slash
Slayer said:To me, GNR is in a group of bands (Skid Row is another notable example) that happened to break out at the same time hair metal was big and so they get lumped together despite being stylistically different.
BUTT said:Yeah, I think most people who have seen my posts for a while know I'm just joking about all this. GNR threads at the old board were always very polarizing. I figured it would be fun to take the other side for once. I have even seen the new GNR in concert and it ruled so hard, man.

Aw I was hoping you'd keep it up for a little while longer. That second post was a pretty good czech pastiche.

Regular themed bps21 said:I revisited that album recently. I like it just fine. If it had just come out in a timely manner like a regular record...I dare say it was a very fine album.
BUTT said:Well, you were at a Guns N' Roses concert and that would be the audience that would receive those songs well, but at the show I went to last year, the crowd figuratively sat on their hands for the Chinese Democracy songs, except the title track, which got the benefit of the doubt because it was the opener.
BUTT said:JAxl, let's not go overboard with the GNR stuff here. I know you have three and half years to make up for but nobody even posts in this folder anymore so it'll stand out even more and lead to renewed hostility on TSM towards this band, which I will feel compelled to reply to, which if all goes as it did on the old board will create bitter feelings in a few posters who feel that my defense of a band I like was in fact an attack on them and their musical tastes.
That said, did they need to add another Who cover to their shows? The one I went to last year had Tommy Stinson singing My Generation, immediately followed by Dizzy playing a solo piano version of Baba O'Riley. This is overkill. We don't need any more Who covers period, let alone by a band that already performs two.
