well i have a double edge to say on the matter. axl was a primadona but one hell of a business mind. he locked out all the other members from producing music for i think like 5 years. the early g&r was badass im not sure about this delusion that axl formed now........ he was a decent front man but didnt have much tallent the rest of the band did. there replacements are odd to say the least.

I think the members of G'n'R are doing just fine without Axle. ;) Velvet Revolver (Slash, Duff McKagen, Dave Kushner of G'n'R and Scott Weiland vocalist from Stone Temple Pilots) rocks hard! With tracks like "Slither", "Fall to Pieces" and "Set Me Free" they have definately established a name for themselves...Only hope they reunite as rumored in 2011.

Slash also has a self titled debut album out with original Appetite for Destruction G'n'R members Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagen and Steven Adler. Lets hope they stay sober long enough to complete the tour...

I was unaware that Slash had the original GnR backup!
I knew he had guest vocalists on a lot of his songs. Ozzy being one of them.
Now I must go buy that cd

what an asshole! If it were not for that group of Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steve, GnR would not exist.
GnR is what MADE Axle. And that's he treats his fellow bandmates. Well, what comes around goes around.
the GnR band members are doing a hell of a lot better than the former front man now.

I've been reading (almost done) the SLASH biography.
It has a lot of stuff I did not know about in it.
It also has stuff I did know about since I was really into that band back in the day.
Some stuff in the book, I only heard partial parts about.
Most of the book is about Slash's drug addiction with heroin.
And when he quit heroin, he would drink whiskey like a fish.
The book is a no holds barred about everything that caused GNR to fall apart.
All in all, it was the entire band that fell apart together but the main reason for the band to fall apart was Axl Rose's attitude. He was very friendly and easy going in the beginning as they all had the same goal. Once they reached that goal of becoming a "real" band, Axl's ego went overboard. His music style changed to and his attitude towards the members of the band were narcissist. He made them sign a contract claiming that he owned the name "Guns N Roses". Not wanting to cause anymore conflict, the band members agreed to sign. Later after that he made another contract claiming that he could use any musician he wanted to make a GNR album. Again, to avoid any conflict, the band members signed. But this made them feel like secondary members to a band they helped create.

At one point Slash OD'd on heroin and almost died. Axl said "You had us worried. I thought I was going to need a new guitar player"

The entire band fired drummer Steven Adler because he was too far into his drug habits. He could not play well during rehearsals. The last song they recorded with him was "Civil War".
Slash was the one who had to give Steve the news that he was fired. And Slash was also given responsiblity to find a replacement. Matt Sorum became the new drummer.

Guitarist Izzy Stradlin got clean from all drugs and tried to continue being in the band but he was constantly around drugs and alcohal. This was too much for him to handle so he left the band on his own will. Again, Slash was given responsibility to find a new guitar player. He found Gilby Clark.

Axl decided he wanted a keyboard player and hired Dizzy Reed. Against the bands opinion.

After Axl did the contracts and such... Slash quit the band. A year later bassist Duff McKagen also quit. Leaving Axl Rose the only remaining original member. A couple years later, Matt Sorum was fired by Axl. Supposedly Matt defended Slash's honor during some trash talk in a rehearsal and Axl fired him on the spot.

Because of Axl, the band would always be late on their concerts. Then he would not show up for rehearsals with the other members. Leaving the band wondering WTF

On the last "original" GNR song, a cover of the Rolling Stones song for the movie "Interview With A Vampire".. The band never seen Axl. They all recorded their parts. Slash did his version of the guitar parts and Axl told him that he needed to sound more like Keith Richards. So Slash went back and re-recorded his guitar parts. Then later on, Axl had another guitarist play over Slash's parts. During the last few rehearsals Slash appeared, Axl never shown up. But the studio was full of new tech synthisisers. Axl was moving into a musical direction that nobody in the band wanted to do. During the last few years, the band hardly ever seen Axl. If he did show up for a rehearsal, he would not even sing.

Through all the drama over the years, Slash gives credit to Axl as a pure genious.
He is a brilliant songwriter. And he never likes it when anybody talks shit about Axl.
He says, only he is allowed to do that. He has no regrets in quitting the band. He says it's the best decision he's ever made. Yet He wishes things were different.

Slash talks about his childhood, his personal life, his life with GNR, his family, his solo work and much much more. It's really a great book.

Since the end of GNR, the original band members have united many times on each other's solo work. Mostly noted for Slash's solo material includes Izzy, Duff, Steve, Gilby and Matt.
They created a superband with former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland.
Velvet Revolver is Scott, Slash, Matt, Duff and another dude.

I highly doubt that there will ever be any form of reunion with Axl Rose. They tried at the 2012 Rock N Roll Hall of fame. Axl chose not to appear at the event of their nomination.

^^^ that was an interesting read. I listened to a little G'N'R back in junior high but never really was a big fan of theirs. I preferred the heavier hitting Metallica of that same era.
