well i am about 21 hours removed from when i saw Velvet Revolver come onstage at Brixton Academy and i have to tell you it was a legendary gig, one the best ive been to. Brixton Academy has a very small capacity so there was about 4,000 people present the atmosphere was awesome, the crowd was awesome, the band were legendary and most importantly i have seen the man known as Slash :D he was on top form last night with some outrageous work on his guitar as well as having his never-cut hair and trademark top hat and well, simply being Slash. ah also my mate caught one of Duff's plectrums (sp? ah you know the guitar thingys) :eek: i offered him fifty quid straight up but it wasnt happening unfortunately. I spent the entire gig down the front the way it should be done :D

the GNR songs were Its So Easy and Mr Brownstone, they also finished as they do on the album with a cover of the Sex Pistols "Bodies" according to Slash there was a Sex Pistol in the building :D

edit: Used To Love Her as well, that was their first encore

Awesome! :D Mr. Brownstone is one of my favorite GNR Songs. They didn't do a cover of Aerosmith's "No More, No More" though?

Tickets can't be too much. They are still kinda a nightclub gig band, even if they do go outside the US.

woah, Kain didnt go for the kill :D

incidently Velvet Revolver are one of many rumoured bands for this years Download Festival. Few things could make me attend that festival (despite the fact ive attended it two years running - Maiden and Metallica who i saw there both years) but seein Revolver again probably could. Megadeth are rumoured too, cant really see myself hiking it to Donington for that. Maiden are supoosed to be doin a festival this year as are Axl Roses imitation Guns N Roses in fact the only major metal band not connected with Download this year is Metallica as they are off recording a new album

I got toi see Velvet Revolver at Lowlands Festival last year, in fact, I even got to talk with Slash backstage for a few minutes. He acted pretty arrogant, though, and even just walked away when I asked him about GNR.

thats Reading mate, Reading :D

Leeds is just something you have to do if you sign up to Reading :p

and Gothix, if I were Slash i'd walk away every time somebody asked me about GNR too.

I only asked him what his favorite GNR song was. :/

ZBomber
01-23-2005, 07:46 AM
Yeh, but Slash HATES Axl and GNR. And I read somewhere that he is mad that everyone just associates him with GNR or something.

I'd probably ask the same question though, too. :p

If he hates them so much, he probably should refrain from playing their songs. You're bound to end up with people asking those questions, really.

Well, he helped write a majority of the songs, so I guess he feels he has a right to play them.

I completely missed the whole GNR conflict thing.

Someone tell me why they broke up, why Axl sucks, etc.

I'm looking for a VH1 behind the music type story, so don't skimp on details! :D

Actually, GNR Behind the Music is on quite a lot, so try to catch it.

There was no big reason. Everyone just started getting sick of Axl. Axl's voice was going down the drain, he started not showing up at concerts un-announced, and their last album (The Spaghetti Incident) was horrid.

has anyone seen a picture of Axl recently? he has had plastic surgery and looks awful.

He looked so much better back in the 80's.

They probably do. As I stated earlier, I don't really like the singer's voice. I think the only reason the band is so big is because everyone knows/loves Slash.
