Just thought i'd start a thread about the whereabouts of forum members that seems to have gone out of view from here that you miss and why,

I've been here since around 2000-2001 (my 1st registration).  Here are a few names from the past that I recall.  Hell, all the names I mentioned are from 15-20 years ago!  Damn, I am old.   Undecided

DAVE-GNFNR-2K -- Massively pro-Axl and anti-Slash during THAT era of the band's history.  His motto was "this site isn't spelling class", and boy did it show in his posts.  Sheesh.  Or should I say "sheche".   Tongue

GNRisSLASH -- Obviously favored Slash during "that" era of GNR history, though as not fanatically anti-Axl if memory serves.

BOOKER FLOYD -- I remember chatting with him a bit.

SLC PUNK -- Seemed like a good guy, and was a regular.

DIZZY -- Not Dizzy Reed, but a member who called himself Dizzy.  A stubborn, ball-busting old-schooler who was often downright hilarious.

LATIGO HAMMERS -- Posted here claiming to be Axl Rose, and had a LOT of people on this board believing it!  Finally a directive from management came down apprising us all that he was NOT Axl, and for him to immediately cease making the claim!

SUKIE -- Nice lady, moderator.  I think she's still listed as a mod, though hasn't visited the site in years.

Look, I'm not saying that's what's going to happen.  But it would be a decent marketing strategy.  And, as has been pointed out over and over, the past 2 to 3 years, things have gone pretty much like they do with LOTS of "regular bands".  This would be a very "regular band" kinda way to do things.


They have been was more "regular band" lately, I would agree.  And this would be the final step.  Actual new music.

Obviously, none of us "know" what's going to go down on or around January 31st...BUT...if the idea is to release an album or single soon, it would definitely serve as an excellent launching point for that.   It's a great OPPORTUNITY which is why it's raising the fans eyebrows in regard to what may be planned.  

It doesn't make sense to squander an event that will have media eyes on it, and wait for Mexico City in March to usher in that new era.

I thought it was an edited highlights show.  And if so, that would probably lean more towards AFD tunes the world knows, right?

But we will still have a setlist, from either here or setlist.fm so we will get the full picture what went down.

We don't EXACTLY know.  But, it sounds like they've agreed to be part of it, and that's not been "normal" for past shows.  They typically opt out of being included in this sort of thing (assuming it's actually a thing).

So, just spitballing: Wouldn't "negotiating" that appearance maybe include telling Fox they want their new song included in the highlights, since it's going to drop as a single RIGHT afterwards?  And we'd see a press release either Sunday or Monday regarding the new album?

We'll know in like 10 days or so.  And we'll know when it comes to whether we see new music in march in about 10 weeks?

That doesn't seem like a real long time to wait and...you know....show "just a little patience".  So that's what I'm doing.  YMMV.

I don't think it hyperbolic to say that this is the most promising year to be optimistic about new music overall since 2008.

And, taking things a bit further, this is the best year on that front for most GNR fans since 1991, if we are being real about things.

Those of us that rode and died with the whole misadventure that was the CD Era, we all wanted to very much to see that through, and it was eventually delivered to us, however anticlimactically.  But it would pale in comparison to what we might get in 2020.

I don't want to hedge all of our bets on Jan 31, but it's certainly going to be a decent enough barometer for the rest of 2020.  

I've pointed out before how much they LOOOOOOVE to say that they're focused on the tour and will look at new music once it's done.  As we've seen from the myriad of recent album announcements from other high profile bands, the two do not have to be mutually exclusive. For GNR, however, for the life of them they cannot seem to execute both at the same time...at least if history is an indicator.

So what does that mean?  It means that if this tour begins without a release date and/or single(s) then you can probably bet the farm that 2020 is off the table for new music. Sure, it's only January, but we've been around the block enough times to understand how this regime operates.  Not to mention, we know from Sue's deleted instagram post that US stadium dates are next after Europe so touring will continue through the bulk of the year.

How/if an album will figure into all this remains to be seen.

There will possibly be interviews around the time of the show as well, or Axl could mention their intentions for the year on stage. Lots of options
