I'm still wondering why he kicked Eagles Of Death Metal off but kept Bullet For My Valentine considering they got a sh** reception in the UK. I would have much prefered to have seen EODM than that emo sh** any day.

who is the nincompoop who decides to book these openers?
its better to have even an unsigned band that matches the genre rather than put two bands together that have sounds that will compromise the whole show...
even though gnr aren't worth the sperm i spill on internet porn...book a polka outfit to open!!

You've got a point.The problem is I honestly think Axl is chooseing people that will make him look better in comparison.Not to mention new group's that will attract a younger crowd.Which Axl can't reach because he can't seem to put out a disc.(by the time we see Chinese Democracy He'll be lucky if his band is even conciderd relevant)Hence the fact that band's like Papa Roach & Bullet For My Valentine have both opend this show.Not to mention Fabio....I mean Sebastion Bach.

Talking as someone who was actually *at* the Cleveland show, I can say that EODM sucked a$$ that night. I don't know about any other night they were on the tour, but as far as Cleveland...yeah, they sucked. Not as in sounded horrible, they were just lifeless. They all stood in one place, occasionally bopped their heads, and made general asses out of themselves.

I hope Helmet soon realizes what a bad f***ing choice they made. Apparently they dont know that having gay sex night after night with Axl will do nothing but ruin your life. f*** Axl Rose, and f*** you too. f***
