Axl Rose, looking like the devil child of Kathleen Turner and Truman Capote these days, has already cancelled the first appearance as the Guns 'N' Roses reunion begins. It may be ending sooner than later. The GNR tour will most likely implode before ever catching fire.
I am not a fan of this band. But that's not what this is about, so I will refrain from spewing all the reasons why. (One of the great mysteries of life though, is how "Sweet Child Of Mine," one of the most annoying songs ever recorded, with its Interpol siren guitar intro and Axl's caterwauling, and those incessantly horrible "Where do we gos," is beloved my so many. But I digress.)
If you are a fan, tell me, how can you stick with this band for as long as you have, waiting for something to happen? This is far more appalling than the Davies Brothers bickering. Can you really be excited at this point of the game? (I do love Izzy Stradlin, who put out some very good rock and roll records on his own, post G'N'R, and apparently, he's not taking part in the reunion. Maybe he's having a few lattes with John Deacon.)
It's been...what...25 years of this crap?
Has the well not been poisoned for all you fans? I'm curious.
