Don't forget that he is constantly late. I think after the 80's he rarely got on stage in time.
I saw his charade of a band, that now plays as Guns n' Roses in Sweden - again, he was late, he was drunk. It wasn't really great, also because
those guys just don't get the sound right. It all sound so wrong, 3 guitarrists with two of them having quite the ego and want to be in the
spotlight, it's complete overkill.
It's a shame that the band completely fell apart, i guess after kicking out Steven Adler and when Izzy Stradlin left, the egos from Axl and Slash
clashed constantly. Izzy always was in the middle and could hold them apart, with him gone, there was just no peacekeeper in the band. It's a shame,
one can only imagine, how their album in 1995/96 would've sounded.
I'm not too fond of Axl and his band now. Most of the players he has, either completely sucked (i still have nightmares of that untalented idiot
Robin Finck destroying every riff, every solo...it was was unbearable) or are just not 100% there, because they're just hired guys playing stuff they
didn't even write. While the Chinese Democracy album had a couple of good songs (Sorry, If the World) it was a huge letdown and there was nothing
that even remotley sounded like the classic GN'R.

If i were Axl, i wouldn't join back up with them, not after they got Myles Kennedy to impersonate Axl/fill in for him at the R&R Hall of Fame.
What should the other guys have done? Not playing at the Hall of Fame? Saying "Without Axl it isn't the same, so we don't do it"? That's
something Slash would never do. I don't see a problem that Axl wasn't there. I'm more concerned that Izzy didn't show up and had no interest. I
always thought that Izzy was on good terms with them and would be happy to once again play with Steven Adler.
There obviously will never ever be a reunion happening and it's a shame.
