    Buckethead was in for 4 years?! What could Axl have been doing all that time? They could have put out 2 or three albums and toured twice in that amount of time. What a waste.

    I bet you'll see a new Deli Creeps CD before a Guns n' Roses CD.

    GnR really needed to release something in late 2002, after their short-lived "comeback" during that year. Saw both of their UK dates in 2002 and they sounded great - a very talented lineup.

    I have 2 CDs of a Pittsburgh concert from 2002 that is pretty good.

    Has anybody seen the Rock in Rio videos (available on Kazaa)?

    The rest of the original lineup, not including Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler, are now in a band called Velvet Revolver with Scott Weiland singing lead.

    This seems to be living proof of the saying "it's better to burn out than fade away." I guess Axl just can't let go.

    I think it's more of a case of having nowhere else to go. Who the hell would want Axl Rose to lead their band? :smug:

    It's about time.

    Now Buckethead can get back to doing more strange Claypool bands.

    Damn, as someone whos only been into G'n'R for a few months, im already bummed. I knew they hadnt released anything and were recording Chinese Democracy (because The Offspring wanted their album to be called 'Chinese Democrazy). Excuse my ignorance on what was a classic band, but this sucks.
