Some really impressive bands on this thing. Nasum and Sacred Reich,wow! Guns n Roses,ummm no. I couldnt do that to myself. I can see Axl throwing a tantrum,taking the stage 2-3 hours late,his typical stuff. Loaded line-up though,im envious of those attending.

Should I have re-written this article to say, "Guns N Roses to show up at Graspop at some point if they feel like it maybe."?

@Oz, Yeah, you really should've! That wouldve been hilarious.. :P

Besides that, some fantastic bands on the bill worth shelling out the money for.

Not GNR though... Bleck.

i cant believe Axel gets headlining gigs at festivals anymore - while I would love to see Guns and Roses. You cant get away with turning up 2hrs late anymore with the cost of tickets to shows these days. I would wanna throw something at him or stand at the front with my back turned on him for turning up late when he could be there on time if I had to wait that long! Why not turn up on time and play late to give the fans more of what they want - a kickass show!
