    Out Ta Get Me


    Posted By DSR on 01.02.02
    It was no paradise city for former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist Slash as he was denied entrance to Guns 'N" Roses' New Year's Eve concert at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

    According to abcnews.com, Saturday night's sold-out show was only the second U.S. concert that Guns 'N' Roses have performed in eight years. Former guitarist Slash was in Las Vegas for the show, but he was turned away at the door, states abcnews.com.

    Slash, who spoke with ABCNEWS Radio, said that he tried to get in, but he was denied entrance. A security guard at the concert confirmed his report blaming band frontman, Axl Rose, for the exclusion, recounts abcnews.com.

    Rose, the only original member remaining, told the venue that he would walk offstage if he saw any of his former bandmates in the audience, reports abcnews.com.

    However, those who did get to see the show were pleased despite technical difficulties that appeared to annoy Rose, states abcnews.com. "I couldn't really hear Axl's voice," one fan told ABCNEWS. "But you know what? I've been waiting to see Guns N' Roses my whole life, so it was good times."

    According to those who saw the show, the band opened with "Welcome to The Jungle", while Axl, dressed in a Rich Gannon Oakland Raiders jersey, performed new material as well as older Guns 'N' Roses songs, states abcnews.com. "It's not the old lineup," another fan said to ABCNEWS. "I mean, the guys weren't into it … It just wasn't Slash."

    According to abcnews.com, Rose spoke directly to the crowd about the technical problems as well as the band's canceled European tour, and their new lineup. Rose claims that unresolved legal issues is the reason that he no longer performs with former members of the group and said that he had never committed to play the much-publicized European tour, which was postponed this summer, rescheduled, and then canceled, states abcnews.com. In fact, abcnews.com reports, he told the audience that he learned about the tour on the Internet.

    Here's another critics take on the Axl Rose Band's 2 shows......He says Slash was walking around the casino with guitar in hand! I love it! Slash knows he is the one and only real guitarist for GNR......

    You know what's funny??? When I met Slash this last summer after he played a gig. I walked up to him to get a n autograph for a friend in the Army over in Germany.....I was all drunk and I was yelling "AXL's a HOMO" at him....like four feet away when he was on the bus...he didn't even blink......Slash is a kool guy...he signed like 400 autographs and took time out to tlak to all of the fans....

    "In his rant, Rose also said that the show last year was a farewell to the old, while this year's show was a "taste of something new." But it was hard to believe him because Guns did not play any new songs that they hadn't already played live previously, leaving one to wonder where Rose plans to go with his new band mates. The feeling after the show was that Rose and his band are still in search of an identity: Right now, this incarnation is no more Guns N' Roses than the Stones would be the Stones if only Mick Jagger remained in the band."


    too true

    Slash was in the UK on New Years Eve and played with Ronnie Wood on a live TV show.

    it aint guns n roses, its axl roses "solo band".
    im a big guns n roses and Slash fan and think what axl is doing at the moment is total bs.

    ive lost all respect i had for him. he should instead of trying to make as much money from the guns n roses name as possible, he should start over new band, new name, new music, with maybe a few guns n roses songs played at concerts.

    cheers
