Pilferk had a great point and it may have been more of bumble foots side not wanting to say whether he was in the band or not. If a company is sponsoring BF from GNR and all of a sudden BF announces clearly he's not in GNR maybe that could lead to a problem. Who knows but that's one possibility.


Ron was either contractually obligated not to say anything or he had an agreement with management not to release he had quit.

Both have been reported.  Nothing to do with a sponsor.

Both have been reported, so one of those is true?

Well if DJ wrote a letter saying he was leaving the band, it is hard to imagine he was told not to do it out of respect for Axl and the camp


He could have informed Axl/management that he quit.  Then went out on his own and released the letter on Facebook.  DJ lives his live on social media.



Yes, but if you read the letter he says he is thanks Axl for the opportunity and he says really nice things about Axl. It doesn?t look like there was some fight or argument about make it public or not.

Anyway I?m glad DJ made it public instead of playing games

I'm not suggesting there was a fight.  I'm just saying DJ probably released his letter to Facebook on his own.

I think it's unlikely he would have done so if he was asked by management not to publicize it.  So it's fair to question why BBF would be told by management to keep it on the down low, but not DJ.

Let?s say that both were told not to say anything. DJ decided to come forward anyway without any innuendo nor mystery about it. Ron on the other hand gave clues, as he put it, and played silly mystery games. If he had an agreement then Ron should?ve never played games. He needed to shut up and pretend everything was fine. Now if he wanted to break the agreement he should?ve been honest from day one.

Believe I don?t like the silence policy but I don?t make it.

Who knows, Frank said DJ quitting threw everyone for a loop, maybe they didn't know he was going to post something to Facebook.  Like I said, DJ lives his life on social media.

For over a year?  Like I said, he handled it badly.  But it could have been straightened out long ago.

Even if there's an understanding between two parties not to make a big announcement, things could still be handled differently.... I don't think these fans are upset because of the "no comment" answers alone. Most people can understand it. If you're asked not to talk about something, you can respect it. It's normal.
It's all the stuff around that seemed to get people.

I mean, there was a countdown, there were comments and all kinds of hints before the last show of the residency. And after.

I might be wrong, but that's the feeling I get.

Yes you?re right but besides that, the band?s spokeperson says he /she doesn?t know why BBF never said anything earlier. So if that comment is true then BBF was free to talk.  There are people here saying Ron had an agreement not to say anything

Yes, and I'm just saying that even if he was asked not to, things could've been handled differently.

He wrote a letter about his Hall of Fame boycott. He could write at least a few words about the current situation too.

It's funny how people complain about bumble because he didn't say "I'm out" (he clearly was, only dumb people couldn't get that) while Axl hasn't talk about anything for almost all his life and everything about him is right because "he doesn't owe us anything"  hihi hihi

Ron was either contractually obligated not to say anything or he had an agreement with management not to release he had quit.

I missed where Ron SPECIFICALLY said it was GnR who asked that/made that request/had that contract with him.

He seemed to allude to "something" or "someone" preventing him...I missed where he (or anyone else, categorically) said who that was.

Link? I wanna read it.

One came from Billboard the other from Ron.  The difference is one says contractually obligated, the other that it was an agreement.


Hmm, I read those.  I didn't see that they specifically said who that agreement or contract was with... Back to reread them, I guess.

He added: "I've been honoring a request to not make any public statements about anything related to it, which continues to put me in a very awkward position that I don't want to be in. Not how I do things, repeatedly taking the bullet on this one."

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/bumblefoot-doesnt-want-to-make-any-public-statements-about-guns-n-roses/

His current status with GNR, meanwhile, is purposely vague and something he's contractually "not [able] to elaborate on."

Uh huh..that's what I read.

Where does it say "with Guns n Roses"

I'm not saying it's NOT with the band. I'm saying there's nothing specifically saying it IS with the band.

Which leaves open that the agreement or contract was with another entity....like a sponser or the label publishing his solo album or whatever.
