Published Feb 11, 2010Last month, the rumour was circulating that Guns N' Roses had banned all Slash-related merchandise from their run of Canadian shows. According to TMZ, security at Canadian GN'R shows were forcing fans to turn their Slash-related T-shirts inside out, and remove their top hats immediately.
The rumour is commonly thought of as untrue, but that hasn't stopped the users of MyGNRForum from sharing their experiences at the shows. One fan insists that the rumour was true, and that his experience at a GN'R show most certainly involved security meddling with Slash-related merchandise.
Well, he or she must've stepped on one of Axl Rose's last nerves, because the singer finally took to the board to drop some bombs on the message board user. Axl's long rant is packed to the brim with some amazing insults. Not only does he call the fan a "sick n' diseased mind spilling it's [sic] bile over the internet," but also an "angry, lesbian, wannabe, high school parking lot rent-a-cop" and a "fucking ignorant, know it all, fucking deluded, misguided, self important, self righteous, pious, small minded, clueless, loud mouthed, arrogant cunt."
Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, Axl Rose:
What the fuck do you know? That's right! You don't know jack fucking shit you fucking ignorant, know it all, fucking deluded, misguided, self important, self righteous, pious, small minded, clueless, loud mouthed, arrogant cunt. No one needs your opinions n' having to deal with your constant abuse of privileges or the miniscule amount of power you've had here you wield like an angry, lesbian, wannabe, high school parking lot rent-a-cop always mouthing off like you're some kind of authority which you're far from. I have to say it saddens me you continue to babble your horseshit to unsuspecting fans n' any names n' numbers you have are of people like you who try n' hurt others to promote themselves at their expense. That's the only real thing you got bitch. It's like Revolver's if not edited, cloudy recollection of events as I've never asked for anyone's shirt bein' thrown out of anywhere let alone say I did but hey he won a contest so he must be credible, whatever, no good deed goes unpunished. I don't work for you or have to do a goddamn thing you think ever. Your opinions of anything whatsoever don't count or mean jack shit to me or anyone in this camp. You're garbage, plain and simple. You're not a fan or a voice of reason... you're a sick n' diseased mind spilling it's bile over the internet. Well now you can drink up the rewards of the crap that's been spillin' out of your pie hole forever here n' enjoy the fermented, feted n' vulgar response you've been cultivating n' aching for... for so long . Find another board this one doesn't need you. Oh n' feel free to jump in all you wanna be web warriors, ho defenders n' bitch boi's, you ain't needed either. For the rest of you... Surprise gigs comin'!!
It's unclear what Rose meant by those surprise gigs, but we do know that the band have recently confirmed a run of South American tour dates.
