this is an article about gnr requirements regarding their show in athens on july 10th.

i will attemt to translate it

*4 trucks and 6 tour buses will be used in order to move the equipment and the gnr crew which consists of 80 people

*band members travel by liar jets and limos

*the show will have pyrotechniks(sp?)  and confetti

*every band member will have his own room backstage with airconditioning

*Axl and the band members requested a yard backstage in order to relax rofl

*Axl's room backstage will be white with lots of roses and 150 black towels rofl

*Axl's room backstage will have lots of tv screens so that Axl can watch fans gettin inside the venue as well as the reactions of fans in the front rows

*gnr have asked for a dressing room and have employed a 'tailor" who will solve clothe-related problems

*gnr will look for second hand guitars and want the keybord technician to be at all times with them


that's about it-sorry for the translation mistakes ok

The funniest request to me is the tailor for "clothes related issues."  They've worn the same things at all of the shows!   That tailor has the easiest job in the world!    hihi

Yeah, that looks like it's from the UYI tour days, because James Hetfield reads off a bunch of those in one of Metallica's home videos from the Metallica/GN'R tour.

Having said that, I don't want to turn this into anti-Metallica thread, I just thought I'd point out when I think these Axl backstage requirements might be from.

why doesn't Axl take some of his money and help out the less fortunate instead of spending it on roses and other shit.

well you are making a judgement on an unconfirmed article, you are creating your opinion without knowing the facts and in the end it is totally Axl's private thing what he does or does not.  no maybe he gives all the towels to charity after he (ab)uses them each night  hihi

Yep, in this article, whether it's true or joke, there're two things I don't quite get.

1)Why should the towels be black?

2)Why do they look for second hand guitars and not new ones? Are these to smash on the stage?

Axl's room backstage will have lots of tv screens so that Axl can watch fans gettin inside the venue as well as the reactions of fans in the front rows

Maybe they are gonna do a photoshoot there and need the guitars to smash for that.
