    Very over rated. They certainly are not prog either. They are rock...

    They are touring now I think, with a new guitarist.
    I really only know their commercial songs, never thought much of them.

    How on earth can someone from one of the most commercial and image-oriented bands in history "sell out"? One has to first be an artist in order to sell out...


    BTW...Axl Rose a genius? Bach, Mozart, Beethoven...Axl....

    Yep, that sits well with me.


    Someone please start a thread about the trancendent music of Journey so I can just end my life.

    Axl Rose has such a distinctive voice. I really like Guns and Roses and thought they were quite brave to cover "Knockin' on Heaven's door" and "Live and Let Die".

    I don't think their sound is completely Heavy Metal, but seems to have other influences in there - perhaps even some punk ?

    You are absolutely right here. Slash is the best one in the whole band.

    I have to call myself a semi fan. I like 2 of thier cds and maybe a few songs from other albums. I have no idea what happened to them though. All of the sudden they were huge and people loved them, the next day you hear all kinds of rumors about Axle and then poof they were gone. I wouldnt mind seeing a comeback from them and would hope the music would have the same tone and standards that the former band did.

    Goodness me I thought GnR were finished a long time ago. Did their tour ever take place? It seemed to be delayed so many times it got comical and I think they lost a lot of respect for that. That said I must admit to liking their original albums and individual songs. Sweet child of mine was a great hit with my group of friends and Slash was one of the most looked up to rock Gods.

    Not a big fan, but I have taught the piano part of November Rain to some students...

    Ok, I chime in with a musicians point of view (actually analyzed G&R as I've was contracted to head a G&R tribute show as the musical director). G&R was great at what they did, it takes great skill to find the balance of technicality and looseness like they did. From a musical point of view, they managed to be tight but loose .. it sounds like it is played "sloppy" (slash is a big contributer there) but remains within the tight domain.. a fine art in balance act.. too tight and it would have lost the attitude of rock n roll.. too loose and it falls apart. Very skillfully done! As for being geniuses, wouldn't think so... as for being astute musicians/businessmen and knowing how to surround themselves with the right people, absolutely! Only my view though, but when listening to interviews, looking at songs structure, lyrical content and the like, a genius is not something that comes to mind. Certainly smart enough to know exactly what is correct from a marketing point of view but.......

    I'll say this for 'em anyway, That first album had me hoping they'd stand the test of time and develope into an ATG rock band cause that was one hell of an impression. No one of a reasonable mindframe with at least an average ear for the recognition of quality music can dispute this. Had they remained consistant and remained together to the present they'd be widely considered one of the greatest ever. And when I say first album, I'm refering to the first LP. You should know what I'm talkin' about?
