Which poor saps has Willaim Bruce Rose Jnr roped in ?
Slash and Duff are back in the fold.
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

When they are making around $5m each per show I am sure they can forget about any differences they may have .....  ;)

Aren't Duff and Slash making alot less than Axl?  Which is fair enough, I think....they basically signed their rights away in the 90's when they were smashed and Axl's been working the brand by himself for the last 20 years...

I think part of the agreement to reform for this tour was around each having an equal performance share, one of the reasons Izzy is not there was because they ( or some of them ) would not cut him a fair  slice of the pie ( or so I read ).
Certainly Axl owns the naming rights so guess he may get a little extra here and there....not sure what the merchandising agreement is, that could certainly work in his favour.

One would have thought that if Izzy had been there, they would have been able to command greater fees from promoters, so that seems a real error to me.  Clearly, it wasn't a personality issue - I saw Izzy play with them in 2006 - and I think he guested on most of the European tour that year.

Izzy is important and his presence would certainly have made the London show more attractive to me..

I've twice had tickets in a basket and pulled out...

I'd agree with that!  ;)

Hopefully the next UK tour will include up here again...

Agreed - would love Izzy there too but I guess as he left a couple of time early nineties they don't consider him as important, which is a great shame.
