Axl Was Here


« Reply #1900 on: April 05, 2012, 01:37:41 AM »

I didnt see the Van Halen thing at all. I think with all the originals but Izzy, which has he said he wasn't going or are people assuming this or where did that start from?

I think DJ playing with Slash would sortof be like a very very small merging of the old and new and the only way it could work, besides someone has to play Izzys parts if he isnt there. It wouldn't be a full on reunion but it would be nobodys fault but izzys and I think he would be ok with that being as it doesnt seem like he cares what people think of him to much,

if Izzy's not attending....give Ashba a call, Axl, he can easily cover Izzy's part for a possible performance.

I'm sure Gilby wouldn't mind filling in for Izzy... No screw that, it just wouldn't be right.   I'd prefer to have Izzy there just to accept the honor than to have a performance without him there at all smoking

Dj would be cool but i think Fortus should be the man for the job if anyone but i really doubt anything will come of it so i guess its a pointless discussion

What about Paul Huge? Is he attending - he could easily replace Izzy and/or Gilby.

we dont know from 1st hand! apparently Matt called Slash who told him he spoke to Izzy who isnt planing to attend the show.

anyway, Ashba said he'd be ok to go/do something the HOF night "if" Axl calls. so thats why Ashba should do the Izzy job IMO....but its not our decision.

At this point if Axl attends I think the first thing he would do is walk up to Adler and crack his jaw...maybe straighten that face out a bit.  What I hope happens is Izzy and Axl put on a secret show with the current band at some club near the HOF and have 300 lb bodyguards to make sure Adler can't get in.

I mean seriously, if your life dream is to reunite with the AFD line-up, why would you take the approach of insulting people Axl actually cares about?  This goes to show how lame and mediocre this dude is.  Good luck with the power trio, aye yigh yigh.

What really sucks is Adler will most likely get a good chunk of the induction speech and whine and lament about what could have been.  That will SUCK for fans of the band.  Once he realizes the HE is the one that fucked it up, no one else, just him, then he has a prayer of being a semi-normal human being.

yeah, the fear is there that the HOF night wont do any good for Adler's health, even if they would perform....lets hope he doesnt OD right afterwards.

I brought it up before, if Steven gets the mike (and I don't see how they can stop him) he is going to create one of the most awkward situations ever!  I really don't want that to happen as i don't want this to be a mockery of what it should be.

My hope is that Duff or someone pulls him aside beforehand and says "Dude, keep it short and sweet and not stupid."

You know looking at the pathetic crap Adler and Saul are pulling i'm soooo happy we have the GNR we have today for many many reason. No wonder the band became a joke in the early 90s and it was "uncool" to like GNR.

Green Day To Induct Guns N' Roses Into Rock Hall
It is still unclear if GN'R singer Axl Rose will show up to the April 14 event.

It takes a punk to know a punk. And though they may appear to be rebels of a different stripe, down deep Green Day and Guns N' Roses are made of the same spiked collar DNA. That's why it makes perfect sense that the Berkeley, California-bred three-chord trio has been tapped to induct the ultimate Hollywood metal gods into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week.

According to Rolling Stone, Green Day will deliver the induction speech for GN'R during the April 14 induction ceremony
 in Cleveland. And while Billy Joe Armstrong and the boys are sure to heap praise on Guns for the pioneering mind-meld of glam, metal and punk on the band's titanic 1987 debut, Appetite for Destruction, the million-dollar question remains which members of the famously splintered band will attend?

Former members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum and the only remaining early-period member, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, have said they may attend, but singer (and lone original member) Axl Rose and former guitarist Izzy Stradlin have not confirmed their plans yet. RS indicated that if the notoriously mercurial Rose doesn't show, it is unlikely that the band will perform and it's not clear if Green Day would play in their stead.

Guns have not performed with Adler since 1990 and Slash hasn't shared a stage with Rose since he split the group in 1993. Rose has been touring for much of the past decade with a new lineup of the band.

"Everyone has been asking me what's going to happen [at the Hall of Fame]," Slash recently told the magazine. "And they know as much as I do. I feel you're totally obligated to be present and I would love to f---ing play, but it's just something that's not gonna happen for whatever reason."

The famously top-hatted guitarist said relations between him and Rose remain, well, chilly. "He hates my guts," Slash said. "It's over a lot of different stuff; I don't even know. There's just no communication between us. I talk to Duff and Steven, but when it comes to old Guns N' Roses, there really isn't anybody that makes decisions."

Whatever happens, Green Day will be in good company at the star-studded Rock Hall of Fame affair
. The Beastie Boys will be inducted by hip-hop icon and Public Enemy frontman Chuck D, while comedian Chris Rock will do the honors for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In addition, "Sopranos" star and E Street Band member "Little" Steven Van Zandt will handle the duties for the Small Faces/The Faces, John Mellencamp will handle psychedelic crooner Donovan, Bette Midler will induct late pop singer/songwriter Laura Nyro and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill will speak on behalf of blues guitar icon Freddie King.

Also on tap are singer/songwriter Carole King, who will speak on behalf of non-performer producer Don Kirshner; the Band's Robbie Robertson, who will talk about producers/engineers Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns; and R&B legend Smokey Robinson, who will induct the sidemen in the Blue Caps, the Comets, the Crickets, the Famous Flames, the Midnighters and Robinson's own backing band the Miracles. The induction ceremony will be televised on HBO on May 5 at 9 p.m.

I cannot understand those who "wish" the HOF ceremony was over.  This has been so entertaining, I think things here will be pretty boring when its over.  Its forced drama and its hilarious to see how each member of the band is dealing with it.  Everything is getting built up so much, but I am sure the event itself will be fine.  I don't think Adler will ruin anything and I think it will be a nice ceremony.  

As sad as it is to say its likely the last time you will see these guys all in the same room together with the exception of a funeral, so embrace the moment!

Yeah, those were pretty dark days when GN'R was in their creative prime, touring non stop, putting out 5 albums in 6 years...

This is the exact thought I was trying to convey, this is why the Green Day thing made perfect sense to me from the start.

that actually never happened.  That is revisionist history at best.  Guns N Roses were the highest selling rock band of 1992, the year after "Nevermind" came out.  No matter what the media will try to sell you, the world did not instantly turn into zombies who only listened to music from Seattle after Nirvana came out, no matter how hard they want you to believe that.
