British concert review.
They gave this show three out of five stars, and the review was pretty riddled with dry humor, but they also continued to state that it was worth the time. Not sure what to think of this review. They wrote that the show started two hours late, which I'm not sure has been the norm on other dates so far. I hope it's not the mark of Axl's whole thing where he eventually has to start acting like... well... Axl Rose I guess.
Having said that, the group touring as Guns N' Roses is actually no such thing. The only original member is Rose, who owns the name. The long-departed Slash's place is filled by Robin Finck - "the ribbed condom of guitar," according to Axl - and the others by hirsute subordinates. Purists insist that a Slash-free Roses is as useful as a Keith-less Stones, but who needs sidemen when there's such a magnificently strange spectacle in Rose?
