    The very short and overly simple version of the story is the promoter apparently royally fucked everything up, the bands mutinied and literally kicked him off the tour and changed the rules so that the international headliner didn't get burnt. I'm sure others will come along and explain this one a bit better than I did but that's the gist of it from what I've been told.

    Original band members – the Prince of Darkness himself: Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi will make a thunderous return to Australia in April 2013 for arena shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, in their first Aussie shows since 1974.

    I'm currently reading My Appetite For Destruction by Steven Adler, I'm not a GnR fan but it's a great read.

    Axl was an arsehole even before they were famous.

    Oh yeah, I saw Adler's Appetite play Sunset Strip music festival, these guys I'd see again anytime. They did GnR songs better than Slash's band, which I saw earlier that day.

    Personally, I think the songs sound better without Axl.

    Fuck, even though I was a GnR fan back in the day, I'd rather just see ZZ Top do a full gig :O
