  1. You did an interview for a mini-documentary by Guns ’N Roses biographer Marc Canter, who wants to reunite the band… I didn’t, that’s the [thing]. I saw it. My manager sent it to me. That interview, I’m like, “What the hell’s that from?” It’s from a while ago, and I don’t know what the interview’s from. And Marc’s a dear friend, but he didn’t ask me if he could use that piece. (Laughs.) So there’s a little like, “Dude, I don’t know where that…I’m wearing a Von Dutch hat, so that’s gotta be li...

  2. Next time I'm at canters I'm gonna shit in the deep fat frier! haha, good luck cleaning that out!

  3. First of all it's a very hard song to sing live. Second I don't think Axl would ever do it because it's A big Slash song just like Slash would never do Nov Rain.
  4. This was 5/1/86 at the Central. Yes the people there didn't care about the band and were disrespectful. All I was thinking was shout the fuck up, they were fucking up my video. Too bad they dimmed the lights after the first song.
  5. The first GNR show was the June 6, 1985 which was the first show with that line up. The sound was bad because the mic had a bad connection. I audio taped all the gigs in Los Angeles which is about 50 of them and video taped about 30 of them starting 1/18/86 Audio was just a walk man and for a few shows, I did a board tape but the vocals were always to loud on the board tapes. The Video was just a VHS cam-corder A few of the videos got out because I would always make the band members a copy so sometimes their girl friends would get a hold of it or something like that. The Central gig on 5/1/86 had a problem with me taking video but when I told Axl about it, he said then if they don't let you we won't play or something like that. He knew that it was important that I was documenting this stuff, so the sound man said fine go ahead. No one else taped the shows, I was the only one who knew that I was catching something special. No good stories. The only problem with doing video was it was very hard to also take photos, but I somehow found a way to do both. It was a lot of hard work and stress making sure I had a good spot where the sound was good and I could see good. If I had to do it all over again I would have got someone else to do the video so that I could focus on taking more photos. That was much more fun for me. Video was slave labor. Also there were so many times that I wished I could have taken photos of something I saw but couldn't to both. If no one else taped the shows than can we assume that all the (club days) video's that have surfaced in the past years are all recordings you have made? Yes.
  6. the Audio from June 28, 1985 Stardust Ballroom and the next gig July 4, 1985 Madame Wongs and Nov 22 1985 Troubadour gigs sound the best. I also like the Aug 23, 1986 video of the whisky because of the fact Sweet Child and Brownstone were debuted and it's cool to see that.

  8. I would like to see a tour with both bands doing different sets by them selfs and together. That would be 3 different GNR bands and some solo stuff.
  9. Hey Marc, just want to tell you that your book is incredible. Definitely the best Guns book out there.

  10. I have told Beta many times, but nothing ever gets done. She thinks it's all Slash's fault. I told her it's not about who's fault it is, it's about how to deal with it and move on
  11. We don't control that site but at some point it might be back up. There are some cool clips on You Tube that someone took from the site and made small audio clips mixed with photos from the book. Here are some of them 11/22/85 Troubadour Indiana Ain't My Kind Of Town live 1985 9/28/85 Street Scene
  12. All due respect, Marc, but if the notion of millions of people who would like to see the AFD or UYI lineups live, but didn't get the chance to during their era, was enough to motivate these two individuals to work out their differences, don't you think that would've happened by now? If not for the HOF induction ceremony, then when? It seems to me you are speaking in terms what ideally should motivate them, which I understand and respect. I mean more in reality, given that both seem to be working with bands they enjoy, and outside of financial reasons, what would motivate them at this point to try and work out their differences? What is their incentive at this point, outside of a lucrative financial windfall from touring together? I don't see one. I'm asking if you know of one (a realistic incentive to work out their differences at this point outside of financial incentives). That's all. Ali Because they owe it to them selfs and the world when they made that music together. I'm sure the Bealtes would have done some shows if John was still alive at some point for some kind of charity. If nothing else they could donate the money to world hunger. They have the power to help thousands of people that are dying because they don't have food or water. For that alone would be a good enough reason.
  13. with out any help , no with help 30% chance Could that help come from you in the future? Or should it be from some ex band member like Duff or Izzy for example?? Or are you talking about a professional of some sort (manager, therapist , agent etc...) professional that does this for a living that both parties trust. It would also take a lot of time. There are lots of things to work out. They would have to go on there own long before they would be able to be in the same room together. The only problem is getting them to go. Outside of satisfying the desires of the fans to see a reunion and/or making the money off a reunion tour, what would be the motivation to even do that? They are both doing their things professionally - touring, recording, etc. They are both busy with bands they seem to enjoy working with. You say the problem is in getting them to go. Isn't it more precisely the problem is in them having a reason/motivation to go and work out their differences either privately or with the help of a third party? Ali Because it's in their blood, Because there are millions and millions and millions and millions and millions of fans that didn't get a chance to see that line up that would like to. Together that line up did something very special. Something like that doesn't come around that often. That fact that they are all still alive is a good reason by it's self. If someone had told them in 1985 that one day they would turn down the opportunity to perform their songs in front of sold out stadiums and feel the huge energy of the crowd that is enjoying their music. If they knew then that they would say no because of they don't get a long anymore. They them selfs would be shocked. I never said they should stop the projects that they are now doing. I said there is a way to do both. Most likely it will never happen and it's going to be a shame that at some point they will die never doing what they had the power to do. At the same time Axl will always have this huge monster on his back called Slash. Mean while there are professionals out there that can solve these problems. Even if nothing comes out of it they will live a better life and know how to deal with problems better and at least know that they tried.
