Missing Gn'R because I'm working a night shift while a bunch of my poser friends post pics of themselves at the show.

Because they aren't really rock/metal fans. They're bandwagoners. When a big stadium reunion event like this comes along, suddenly they're at the show telling everyone about how great Use Your Illusion 3 was and that Axle really sounds like he always has and they've always liked that guitarist, Slasher. They can't name a song off Appetite after Sweet Child or maybe Jungle.

Yes. Really.

I had a demo tape of Appetite For Destruction two months before the album was released. Damn.

You know it, they know it and they know you know it.

You were saving someone's life at that time.

There will be some other opportunities to see them.

Shrug your shoulders and ignore idiots.

It is you who has the best memories listening to a demo recording before anyone else and no poser will take that away from you.

You may choose whichever consolation of the above you wish. In the end I do realize that it doesn't help much because it is really annoying. So all I can say is that I am sorry for you.

(and sorry but I couldn't do anything but laugh about Axle and Slasher :lol similarly, Miles has an awesome voice! :lol)

1. I know it but they don't, or they don't care.
2. Hardly. I was probably trying not to give a bunch of narcotics to someone with chronic pain though.
3. Maybe, but who knows with Axl? I'm honestly surprised they've made it this far. Right, David Lee Roth?
4. Yes. This is what I do. Well, this is what I do - right after I post in this thread. ;) :lol
5. True. I loaned the cassette to my brother and I don't think I ever saw it again. He's no poser, but he did sort of take it from me. :P

Reading comprehension: failed.

I said he was about 100. You don’t get that kindness and wisdom before your 90’s.

1. If they don't know it, they are idiots, then ref. to #4.
2. If your patients prefer painkillers to curing the source of pain, they are idiots, then ref. to #4.
3. Maybe he's on the right track now. If not, he is an idiot, then ref. to #4.
4. Don't restrain yourself! We all can offer a sleeve you can cry to.
5. Ask him where it is now :lol Losing such valuable stuff wouldn't be very wise so then you have to ref. to #4.

Was watching a YouTube of them performing at an LA club in 86. They were performing like half of Appetite in early 86. They formed in 1985, right? Talk about a creative burst right out of the gate.

They did. It was my other half's older (like almost 70 years old) Aunt, and I'm HOPING auto correct is to blame. :\
