When they toured Appetite they were usually the opening band. Those don't get solos.

No. But then, I love the new album.

And when they played occasional headline shows they were 1-hour club sets. And they had a guitar solo for Slash in.

Ron Thal, who is an awesome virtuoso guitar player. DJ Ashba, who is the guitar player in Sixx:A.M. - hell of a player. Richard Fortus, who kind of plays the Izzy/Gilby role really. He's very much the rhythm guy most of the time.

Frank Ferrer on drums. Dizzy Reed still on keyboards/piano. Tommy Stinson on bass. All solid players.

Then there are an couple of extra guy who really doesn't add much. Chris Pitman, who pretty much just does percussion and some extra keyboards.

The old band's solos were boring too!

(and no, they're not 20 seconds long)

The old G'N'R was so good. The version now isn't the same. The show may be good. The band Axl has now may be good musicians, but its just a quasi G'N'R to me.
