Plumbee I can see your point. I am not a big fan of the R&RHOF or Axl. I live in Columbus and can't be bothered to visit even though I LOVE R&R. Too much politics involved with the choices. The problem is Axl is like the little boy who cried wolf in a way...well more like the big douche bag that whined....I can't believe any motivational statement he makes. He has a long history of douche bagginess and/or mental health issues and by all appearances is an A-hole.
Aside from Axl's character....Appetite was brilliant and almost as important an album as VH1. Plus, if you took the best of both Loose Your Illusion albums and made 1 disc it would be phenomenal. This is all my opinion and you know what they say about opinions......
"I once played notes so fast that light emanated from the strings whereupon, I saw God.... who then told me to relax and start playing music."
"I don't want to think about how I am doing it because that just makes it harder." Steve Howe
"You know, once you've had that guitar up so loud on the stage, where you can lean back and volume will stop you from falling backward, that's a hard drug to kick." David Gilmour
