GUNS N' ROSES: The Only Lineup That Ever Mattered


Source: TMZ.com, GunsNRoses.com

Axl Rose annihilated a paparazzi at LAX the other night, connecting with a ferocious blow to the snapper’s head — and now we’ve got the video of the entire brutal beat down.

Before the brawl, Axl warns the paparazzi about a photog who was allegedly getting close to a woman in his entourage saying, “touch her again, I’ll break his f**king [THRALL WORLD edit: fucking] neck.”

Seconds later, the woman can be seen scuffling with a photog — and that’s when Axl charges in and swings for the photog’s head … knocking the guy right on his ass.

AXL ROSE Talks More Smack About SLASH In New Interview, “No” APPETITE Era GUNS N’ ROSES Reunion In Sight

SPINNER: “Would you consider a reunion with the ‘Appetite’ or ‘Illusions’ lineups?”

AXL: “No.”

SPINNER: “Why not?”

AXL: “A lot more reasons than I’ll get into here now.”

He actually does get into it in the interview. The interviewer lobbed a few no-nonsense questions and Axl throws a lot of stuff out there in his typical fashion; A bit rambling, full of overwhelming self-importance and self-entitlement, and most sadly for ANYone hoping for him to change his mind about patching things up with Slash; a bit eccentric and out there.

GUNS N’ ROSES Debuts At No. 3 On BILLBOARD

GUNS N’ ROSES’ long-awaited new album, “Chinese Democracy”, sold 261,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release (including a reported 25,000 downloads at iTunes on November 23 not counted towards the opening week) to debut at position No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The first-week sales of “Chinese Democracy”, which was released through an exclusive deal with the Best Buy chain, puts it on par with that of the opening number registered by “Contraband”, the 2004 debut from VELVET REVOLVER, which features in its ranks Rose’s former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmates Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. That CD sold 256,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week of release to debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart.

DR. PEPPER In Deep Shit? AXL ROSE Lawyer Blasts Failed ‘Free’ Soft Drink Promotion

Guns N’ Roses’ and Axl Rose’s lawyer has castigated Dr Pepper, accusing the soda maker of failing to deliver on its “Chinese Democracy” (Black Frog/Geffen) free soda promotion, which the band was never involved in.

Beverly Hills-based Alan Gutman has written to Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. president and CEO Larry Young, accusing the company of operating an online redemption scheme that was an “unmitigated disaster which defrauded customers.” Gutman is demanding that Dr Pepper makes good on its offer by extending the period for the offer; he also wants full-page apologies in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.

I remain skeptical over this whole flippin dog and pony show. My thoughts on the W. AXL ROSE album are quite clear: It’s NOT GUNS N’ ROSES.

Second, how do you offer a free can of pop to EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN and then not have the means to come through when EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN decides to take you up on the offer. Not enough servers at DRPEPPER.com to handle the load? Well crap! You know the economy is in the tank! People are desperate for free ANYthing these days!

Naturally, I wasn’t the only one experiencing problems with signing up for some free soda on the Official DR. PEPPER website:

repeated attempts by WalletPop.com staff to reach drpepper.com Sunday morning resulted mainly in a longtime “loading” message on the main page. When we managed to get in, the coupon location wasn’t immediately clear. It was behind “Promotions” and then “Free Dr Pepper,” but then that page wasn’t loading for us, either.

Then we tried 1-888-drpepper (1-888-377-3773), as recommended to us by a company spokesman. We called midday and got an operator after a 15-minute wait.

But honestly, after the second attempt at refreshing the page I gave up. Waiting 4-6 weeks to quench my thirst just seemed a little silly.

But for those distraught over not being able to get through to thee Peppy Doctor fear not!!! Got a few more minutes of your life to sit and stare at an uncooperative computer screen? The latest on the situation is this:

Based on tremendous consumer response, Dr Pepper is extending its offer for a free Dr Pepper until 6 PM EST on Monday, November 24.

So join in people! It’s totally ghey but you just know you’re going to kick yourself if you don’t play along! For instructions on how to get your FREE can of Dr. Pepper in celebration of the release of GUNS N’ ROSES new album, ‘CHINESE DEMOCRACY’, simply click HERE.

GUNS N’ ROSES, ‘CHINESE DEMOCRACY’, And DR. PEPPER: A Non-Review

November 21, 2008

Man of Mystery <-- (that's sarcasm people)

DieTrich Thrall: Man of Mystery <-- (that's sarcasm people)


Source: Me

Why so serious? Taken directly from my Myspace page:

I know it seems a little picky to bring this up so last minute but I just couldn’t help myself.

You see, it seems the new GUNS N’ ROSES album, ‘CHINESE DEMOCRACY‘ is finally coming out this very weekend on November 23rd. On a Sunday. An unusual day for an album release to be sure but hey, it’s W. AXL ROSE. What did ya expect aye?

Chances are you’ve probably heard at least one of the new songs on the album. If not you are welcome to hippity hop the fuck on over to Myspace.com/gunsnroses. The whole album is streaming there at record-shattering Myspace player numbers (25 plays a second!?! Holy crap!!!) until Sunday for all to enjoy.

And then there’s DR. PEPPER. The powers that be for the soda said a bit ago during a time when the albums release was still in question that they would give a free can of thee Peppy Doctor himself to every single American if the ‘Chinese Democracy’ album was actually released.

Of course we all chuckled and rolled our eyes. We’ve only been waiting some 14 years for this album to come out. No chance of that happening right?

Wrong! And the Pepper Power Guys have to be smacking their heads and “doh”ing it up as the new GUNS N’ ROSES CDs sit patiently in BEST BUY stores across this great country of ours just waiting for the chance to ingrain itself into our Susceptibly Sensible rock n’ roll brains and rock n’ roll history.

But I have a leeetle question for everyone. It goes something like this.

W. AXL ROSE is 20% of the creative force behind the worlds greatest rock album of the entire 80′s and quite possibly of all time; APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION. He’s also the only original contributing member to this new “GnR” album. So does it still qualify as a bona fide “Guns n’ Roses” album? Is anybody really buying that? I mean I know there’s a few peeps out there who think that 9/11 was just some crazy Alien Conspiracy so I know there’s people out there who are ready to believe anything.

According to The Official DR. PEPPER website, Dr. Pepper is an authentic blend of 23 flavors. We all know it’s fucking magic in that little tin can.

How about this? What if Dr. Pepper offered a FREE can of pop that had say… I don’t know… 20% of the authentically blended flavor of Dr. Pepper??? They could call it “DP” (which is actually a little closer to 30% of the letters used in Dr. Pepper) and they could put a little disclaimer on the can about how some of the flavors don’t get along anymore or some such nonsense.

I’m going to go ahead and err on the side of: my idea is fucking awesome… So let’s see here mathwise, breaking that down to 20%… Carrying the 2… According to my calculator, Dr. Pepper only needs to provide us with 4.6 authentic flavors to match Axl’s AZZHAT attempt at tricking us into thinking he’s acually giving us a new Guns n’ Roses album.

IOW. Hey Axl. You aren’t fooling anyone except for The AZZHAT Demographic (and Lord knows they’re out there). We’re all glad to hear the new shit. But let’s call it what it is. An W. AXL ROSE solo album for Christ’s sake (Obama’s sake for those of you who believe in that sort of thing).

So there you go. Cancel the Guns N’ Roses / MARAZENE tour. Unless of course there’s a SLASH to your left, an IZZY to the right, and a DUFF and ADLER kicking it from the bottom. Fuck you very much.

I’m out. Have a great pre-Thanksgiving weekend.
