JMoore 5pts AXL ROSE is awsome, he sounded great saturday and as far as the rest of the band they were great ,DJ ASHBA rocks! just sayin' 5pts There is something inherently wrong with a dude that calls himself DJ Ashba being in Guns and Roses. The guy can play other people's music well, but give me Izzy any day. The Sandman 5pts That's his real name. His first two initials are short for "Darren Jay" Last name - "Ashba" IMHO, Izzy was a great rhythm guitarist - that's not Ashba. Ashba is lead for the most part. And he plays Slash's parts better than Slash himself. I can say that as I saw Slash in Jan of this year and while entertaining, his playing was as sloppy as could be.THIS iteration of GnR was tighter than the original band ever was (saw them many times back in the day), and they make these songs their own. I was impressed that they really are a "band" now, instead of just "hired guns." Dramrocker 5pts I have seen GNR in Austin in 1987 and they were incredibly tight then when opening for the Cult. Probably the most encredible opening act I have ever seen.
