Hey guys,

On april 1, 2016 Guns N Roses performed their surprise show at The Troubadour, LA. Axl and Slash together on stage after 23 years. Any comments ?

The abscence of Steven Adler (they say due to a back operation?)
Izzy Stradlin (not clear if he even was asked)
Matt Sorum ?
Teddy "Zig Zag"
The Horn section with Tracy and Roberta
Gilby Clark
Axl took a step away from his pride and after calling Slash a cancer for more than 20 years he stands next with him on stage???
What's the drive for this, money ? music ? ....
Why is Slash taking the bite, as he has proven his own projects succesfull.
They are talking about even making a new record. Will that be in the same leaque as AFD or UYI 1 & 2?
Can the magic happen again ?????

I was a huge fan of GNR from the start until Slash went away. They were the reason I bought my first electric guitar.


I would love to hear what GMC'ers think of all this smile.gif

I think that it is weird them playing together again.Never really thought that it would happen again. You do have to question the motive behind it. As you already said Slash own projects were going very well. A new album in my opinion won't have anything on their previous work but I would be more than happy to be proved wrong smile.gif

I would also love the opportunity to see Guns N Roses with both Axl and Slash playing. I would pay good money for that smile.gif

slash is one of my favourite players and the reason my first 'real' guitar was a Gibson LP but I just have no real interest in anything Axl rose is involved in anymore. As much I loved appetite, I thought the use your illusion albums were largely spoilt by axl.
personally not really fussed about the GnR reunion.

I really hope, after the despute is over, they will open the holly grail of Use Your Illusion live recordings and bring it on Blu Ray biggrin.gif

But after watching the YT Clips, I think Axl´s voice did really great, but he should do more sports laugh.gif
Besides Duff and Slash he looks to fat wink.gif

Maybe Slash´s divorce is an reason to play with Axl again.

Obviously, lots of people are very suspicious about this reünion. I'm sure they realise that themselves. I was a dedicated fan and still carry them in my heart. I'm very curious to see what will come out of this .....

Slash and this band are the reason why I started playing guitar so this reunion is a great new for me. I know that it won't be the same than in their first years but it's GREAT to see Axl, Slash and Duff playing together again.

About new music... who knows, I think that Slash is playing better than in his early years, and he showed the world that he can still compose killer riffs. On the other hand, Axl's Chinese Democracy album is a very good album that with the right producer (that guides him with his vocals and avoid unnecessary extra high screams) and with Slash on guitars could be a masterpiece. Let's cross fingers for a new great GN'R album!

Absolutely!!! A long time ago, millions of fans were waiting years for a new GNR album and then they came with the "Spagetti Incident". I was like : WTF ??? A cover album???, ohmy.gif ... Now???? .... Seriously???? mellow.gif . Man I was really disapointed so let's hope that they can set this straight and blow the world's roof off with a new "killer" album. cool.gif

I just would like to add that I've been checking some youtube videos and Chinese democracy songs with Slash solos are Much COOLER! This guy has magic in his hands. smile.gif

Check out the song Sorry for example... his solo is epic.
