The Rockstar Ramblings: Guns N' Roses 3D

Guns N' Roses have released a trailer for their upcoming 3D concert movie titled "Appetite For Democracy." The concert was shot during the bands Appetite For Democracy residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas last year. Per the trailer, Guns N' Roses turned "Sin City" into "Paradise City." For those who just cringed, here are a few other thoughts on the movie trailer...

The voice over is awful, talking on and on about the desert. It describes it as barren, unforgiving, and lifeless. Are we talking about Vegas or some reality show housewife actress? "UNTIL NOW!" Sounds like a WWE intro... Of course, before Guns N' Roses showed up there was nothing to do in Las Vegas. It's clearly NOT the greatest place in the world with unlimited gambling, Elvis impersonators, entertainment, and an abundance of bad decisions waiting to happen...

Finally we see clips from the concert. The strippers are in 3D! I'm sure they are advertised as burlesque dancers, but sorry, pole, leather bikinis, and fishnets equals strippers...

Axl Rose is in full accessory mode and seems very into cowboy hats...

Here's a game to play, each time there is a shot of the crowd try to find someone under the age of 35 and NOT holding up a smart phone...

With his hair pulled back and piano descending from the ceiling, Rose has completed the transformation into Elton John...

Going by this trailer alone there are no 'Chinese Democracy' songs during this concert. WARNING: There are MANY Chinese Democracy songs played during this concert movie...

Love the clip of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", anyone else picture Rose sitting around a table with family for the holidays and he busts out the chorus "Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven's Door!" and sits, waiting for a response?

I may or may not enjoy this movie, but either way I don't think its going to "BLOW MY MIND"...

If you have a phobia of fire (pyrophobia) stay away from this movie because THE FIRE IS IN 3D!

Overselling 101: "If you see one concert film in your lifetime this is the one to see." Question: Is the word "lifetime" too much? Answer: Yes...

Two words: Flying Pianos

Should this be a big hit and Axl decides to bring his band back to the desert for an extended stay I'm keeping my fingers crossed for JUMP SUIT AXL...

I went to all 12 shows at the Hard Rock, and each one was mind blowing. Did you go to any? Probably not.

it's sad that I used to like them... Man Axl go to the gym and don't make the hired replacements act like Slash they just look stupid. Only Slash can pull off Slash

Doesn't sound or look like GNR, just more evidence that GNR only exists inside Axl's so-called mind these days.
