No clue, but I booked my hotel just in case.  

You booked a hotel where and what date?  Huh

I'm just guessing, but in LA around July 21?

That's what I assumed as well.

Can you see Adler and Izzy playing with them for this? I really can't. My speculative guess would be, if anything happens, it would be the current incarnation playing through AFD all the way, perhaps with the odd guest, to announce an AFD deluxe reissue.

Not sure.. Adler seemed to know things were in the works for the anniversary, although it didn't come across as he knew any details.

When asked to comment on GN'R by Rolling Stone, he now says he can't comment on them at all.



Izzy... well, if he by principle (i.e. only offered guest appearances during the tour) said no to join them last year I don't think we'll see him.

If it was because of the money (not getting the same cut), I can see him joining them for some exclusive shows with a contract giving him an equal share.

I do not see Izzy or Adler playing.  I do not even see a commemorative show.

I damn sure don't see some sort of super deluxe bonus edition re-issue.

I actually would want a chinese deluxe reissue if we could get new tunes. We have pretty much everything we can get from AFD. Anyhow, all pipe dreams at this point.

Really? Do you see nothing happening? How come?

With you on that one. Way more interest in Chinese era unreleased stuff. As discussed before though, we're in the minority with that one. A Chinese reissue would NOT sell. In fact, it would probably even be laughed at, sadly.

Right now, this looks like little more than a moneymaking operation for all involved.

Which I hardly begrudge them.  They pissed away YEARS of paydays acting like children.  Perfectly natural to want to recoup that. 

I think this is their most professional tour, and viewed in a lot of ways, might be their best overall tour.  They are killing every night, no extraneous bullshit or drama, and the fans are over the moon happy.

But do you get much of a vibe they are a band again?  I don't, to be honest.  I get more a cast of a movie vibe.  Meaning, they all have their parts to play, they play them to the best of their ability and put on a great show.  But, ultimately, just guys doing a job for huge coin.

I don't know I see much in the future, save for future tours.

I agree with all that, totally. I get no vibe they're a 'band' in the sense we think of most bands. It's a tight show, for money. I'm more than OK with that- I can't wait for my chance to see it. I don't even think whether it's a good or bad thing how they are now- I just see it how it is. Live shows. With no evidence, anywhere, whatsoever, that anything other is planned or even considered. I have no expectations of anything more, except, as you say, maybe a few more tours.

What's strange about this though is a) that sign and b) the comments from Adler. OK, we can write Adler's comments off, as we have done for many many years now, but that sign certainly throws a bit of curiosity in though? All the other signs we've had have led to something......

Personally I really think something is planned. But that something may simply just be an exhibition of photos of the time or similar.

I agree -- the chemistry is certainly surprising, but definitely not a focused, cohesive "take over the world" type band.  Firstly, we have a hybrid lineup including some original members (and lacking others) and some of Axl's hired hands.  Then we have Axl's own talk of new material that "might include Duff or Slash, if they are feeling it".  And of course there's the fact that we all know damn well -- Axl alone still owns the GNR name and the others are all contract players.  Regardless of what Slash or Duff choose to do after their contracts expire is insignificant -- the fact that their tenures in GNR expire at all is what lacks the "band" feeling.

But in the end, their heyday was decades ago.  We shouldn't expect them to even come close to capturing that zeitgeist again.  It's staggering to me just to watch the youtube videos.  A freakin' year ago, I would never have believed that Axl would share the stage with either Slash or Steven again.... and here he was sharing the stage with both simultaneously!  Not long ago, it was inconceivable to me that even 2 of the original members would tour together again, and within the last year, there have been times when 4 of the 5 originals were on stage together!   Shocked

No, what we are experiencing right now is "extra".  Having Slash and Axl on the same stage again -- truly miraculous extra!  Having Steven involved just a little was even more "extra".  If Steven and Izzy were there full time?  Finally a true reunion, and perhaps the ultimate extra, but even the five original members together wouldn't lend into the concept of "forever" any more than the lineup that we have now.

Anything that happens from here (continued tours, Izzy/Steven appearances, new music, etc) will continue to be extra.  And we should definitely be thankful that we got any of it at all.
