Seriously? I had no idea! That is a testament to the band and its music, surely. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by jimmyjames from Wednesday, December 03, 2008 2:20:45 PM)
They came over to NZ last year for a one off show and ended up doing three shows because the demand was so high. I'd say that suggests they have a pretty strong core audience. At least in this part of the world. Chinese Democracy is number one on the charts here at the moment.
Have they managed to keep a core audience?.... A group of loyal fans?.... That's what i mean by achievement.
They were the biggest band in the world for a while there. That's a pretty awesome achievement.
That's why their called "Guns n Posers"....... Yeah they may have a hit or two but overall they didn't really achieve much, in my opinion anyway.

It's been too long and the opportunity was missed for GNR. More people care about a Judas Priest reunion than they care abour a Gunsn'Roses reunion because all of Judas Priest members have been far more professional and genuine than GNR, even in JP's worse bitchy times.
Besides, Glenn Tipton can outplay anyone from GNR. KK Downing won't even bother with competition and Ian Hill, well, he's Ian Hill (kissy kissy). Rob Halford is a better songwriter, singer and frontman than Axel Rose EVER thought of being and in my opinion, better looking. At least Halford admits he's gay. Axel Rose lies about it ;)
