You're not overstating anything, btw. It was truly one of the best concert experiences I've had. It'll take a while to sort it. But, for now, I'm already considering when/how/where I'll get to see them again.
Steve Winwood| Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds| Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds| Echo and the Bunnymen| Echo and the Bunnymen| Paul McCartney| Foxygen| FYF Fest| NIN/Soundgarden| Elvis Costello| Swans| Buzzcocks| King Crimson| Elton John| Kasabian| Massive Attack| Massive Attack| Slowdive| Tame Impala| DFA 1979| Fleetwood Mac| A Winged Victory for the Sullen
Also, I think that's the closest Axl has come out to the scheduled time in ages. They were scheduled for 1130 and prob rolled out 5 minutes after that. Totally caught me off guard. Around 1130 I remember telling my brother "we've got at least 45 minutes to go" haha.
I caught Apparat live tonight. First show at the El Rey since 2007 (how did this happen??). Man I miss that place. Great show. His live band was much better than in 2008, that's for sure. The song selection may have left a little to be desired, but no real complaints. I understand he is touring behind his new album which is a little different than his older stuff. Anyway, if anyone is waffling, check him out.
Oh, and he'll be at Lightning in a Bottle apparently.
For your health

He acts like an entitled child with a trust fund... and you call that being a rockstar? I know people that have worked with or spent time around Axl Rose and they all hate the guy. The stuff he pulls in inexcuseable and he does not deserve the fame he has. I have not seen Axl Rose perform live, and I know I never will, but I bet I have seen some of these 'indie" bands put on a better rock 'n roll show than Axl Rose ever will.
Ha, I met Axle Rose a few years ago while waiting for food at a Deli and had a pretty interesting conversation with him about music for a good 30 minutes and he gave me 2 vip passes to their show at Gibson and paid for my food for even knowing who the fuck he was... Really nice dude.
I have to say Josh, sometime the most annoying about an indie rock show is that the lead singer lacks stage presence. They don't have any personality up there, because they are so damn apathetic. I've never seen Axl or GnR, but it seems like he goes on stage like he owns it(entitled), and I imagine that can be an experince. One of the reasons I loved the Hives live, they fucking have so much bravado, and stage presence it kinda takes over the entire show. I imagine Axl being the same way.
Axl might or might not be a total dick, but who would you rather watch perform their greatest hits on stage Axl Rose or Ezra Koenig?
In terms of total dickness, Caleb Followill takes some beating. Anyone who demands an exclusion zone around his table in a near deserted restaurant and that servers must not approach his table unless he asks for them, is a fine candidate for total dick.
believe me, i put up with a lot of his attitude, but it is axl rose, it's who he is, and i was more than happy to be able to be a part of the machine.
your line about an indie band putting on a better rock and roll show than axl ever has is laughable, though.

I have seen a ton of shows...and no GNR are not my favorite band of all time. But I have NEVER seen a rock star command an audience the way Axl Rose does and I'm sure I never will.
