It is still "Guns N' Roses" even without the original line-up. Axl owns the name "Guns N' Roses," so technically, he is still playing with Guns N' Roses.


In name only....unless they are all playing onstage together, they can NEVER be GNR....couldn't produce the same sound without all the elements the same....that's what I meant. Just like the old band Lynryd Skynryd is still around, but in name only. Without Ronnie Van Zandt as the frontman, it's not the same sound no matter how hard his brother tries to sound the same.

always loved GNR but there are so many other better guitarist then slash


Not necessarily better...completely different styles. They are great in their own particular way.

They had 1 good album.

Where as Rakim, the man that elevated hip hops rhyming skills to the next level, a true God MC, gets turned away?


If there was no Rakim, we would still be saying " a hip hop, boogie to the bang bang boogie, up jump the boogie"




Because hip hops rhyming skills have all but destroyed the music industry.
Can't write a song these days without some fat head rapper in it.

That's why

What a shame. A lot of musical greats are a tad nuts.
Axl is no exception. The original GNR was out of this world fantastic, really. They had impeccable timing and were all incredibly talented.
Since Axl has come out of 'rehab' he is different. The original GNR is gone now and there will never be a substitution. Axl, like alot of great artists, thinks it was all about him. He fails to comprehend the team he had. and there will never be another team like it. Frankly, his newest album sucked.

I think it's a shame he won't let his fans have the satisfaction of having the origlnal GNR in the hall of fame.
that's how odd and bitter he is, he refuses to share fame.
just my 2 cents.

Ya! reject that crap just like the Pistols did - well done guys!


And funny that! what's up with all these old geezers in my age doing all these old Pistols cover hits as a tribute all of the time?

Why is that?

I have the urge to blame the good man Steve Jones from the Pistols for the bad influenece!



Or maybe Lenny? (Who in my opinon should be there in the hall already)

What's the deal with all the newer songs getting ruined with some rapper preaching in the middle of it? The rapping doesnt even fit into these songs, just ruins them. Whyyy?

www.usatoday.com...

There's the link.There was an audio link available on youtube earlier but it appears to have been taken down.Just figured I'd add this to the thread.


"Chris Rock also referenced Axl Rose's absence as the clock neared 1 a.m., saying "Even if he was coming tonight, he wouldn't have been here by now."

I was able to catch that comment on the live feed and it was hilarious because it's true

I dislike Myles Kennedy. And i actually really disliked how they out him up to sing.Disgraceful


That being said however, there was no one else that could sing, It was still good to see Slash, Stevie and Duff play together again, as well as Gilby and Matt.

I have to agree with you.While I think Kennedy did okay on Slash's album..singing gnr tunes just isn't right.I was actually hoping maybe Duff would sing.They said they rehearsed "It's So Easy" but decided not to play it.I really don't think it turned out that bad though.Of course,we would all have loved for Axl to have to been there.I am curious though,this is supposed to broadcast on HBO here in the US in May.I'm wondering if they'll show any of their performance.
