'Guns n' Roses Was Here' Pop-Up Shop Announced

As part of the 30th anniversary celebration of Appetite for Destruction, Guns n' Roses will launch a retail event called "Guns n' Roses Was Here." The event is in partnership with with Maxfield and Bravado and will be open from August 11-18 in Los Angeles. Basically, this sounds super expensive. I'm sure the Kardashians will stop in (seriously). The shop will apparently feature hand painted GnR jean jackets by AMIRI - they sell for $1,300 a pop.

Oh, Spin reports you can also buy a $275 GnR T-shirt, via MadeWorn. So metal.

Ca$h grab....(more power to them. If folks are willing to pay $275 for a t-shirt, why not shake the sugar tree until the branches break?)

$275 for a T-shirt?? Why? If people are willing to but it then why not...I mean you can probably find the same shirts for 10-20$ anywhere else.

Hello. Allow me to hijack this thread.

Over the past year, things got overly political and rather heated; even on this tightknit website of ours. Over the years, I shared with you a lot about my background and about my adopted minority children and specifically, this past year in particular, the racist bullying they endured in school. I even posted an article here from Rolling Stone magazine entitled the "Trump Effect"; which depicted bullying in my children's school district.

Anyway, yesterday, I was contacted by a Producer from the A&E Television Network. They are doing a documentary about racism in and around Saucon Valley and "somehow" heard about me and my inter-racial family. {I suspect metalboy! turned them on to me (joking)}. They want to interview us for their program. Believe it or not...I am on the fence about dong this. My kids say to go for it. However, they have enough baggage, as it is. I don't want to burden them more. Just because I am outspoken and cross thin red lines, doesn't mean I they need to do so. I've become this way over 47 years...they are still kids.

Any Thoughts?

I think you can only do what you are comfortable with - my mom always said "When in doubt, don't."

Good luck.

I 1,000,000% agree with Allyson and her very wise Mother. If it doesn't immediately feel right to you, don't do it. You have your kids to think about, and they're too young to understand the potential fallout.

GnRn$. Simple logic, everyone can see what this is . . . and Gary helped to eloquently put the cherry on top!

Regarding the hijack: Fletch, you often confuse me. And you also inform and amuse me. If all is as you say, the others are right: do what your gut says. You strike me as a complicated fellow, with a complicated life. Why add to the churn unless the results end up being a net-positive, for you, your family, and for those who might see the show? I wish you well whatever you choose to do.

@Fletch. Man,I'd ask myself is the proverbial "15 minutes" that this would give your kids worth the possible 5 years of backlash (depending on their ages) that it could cause. Kids,especially teenagers,are viciously horrible without ammunition. (I know. I was that asshole many years ago) So I totally get your hesitation concerning this.Good luck either way bud👍

And not to hijack the hijack here,but Him, it's good to see your still alive and kicking my friend 😎

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: The GNR post: I agree with Badland. I haven't seen this tour, but I've listened to their 'Live From the Apollo Theatre" streamed live on Sirius Radio a few times. man, simply sounds terrible.

Him: Complicated you say? Alecia Moore, not Avril Lavign, grew up just a couple of miles from me, so, I say I'm more M!ssunderstood. :)

And yes, all is as I say. It's not too complicated, actually...

The producer, Eileen Murphy, works for ABC news. She read the aforementioned article in Rolling Stone magazine. She then approached A&E programming about doing a documentary based on the article and it was green-lighted. She told me that she has come down to this area (from New York) and was dumbstruck at all the Confederate Flags she saw. (Actually, I guess living here, I'm immune to it. I see 'em more in Gary's neck of the woods) (Peace, bro.)

Ms. Murphy has reportedly already interviewed some school officials and some African-American Families in this area. Based on her interviews, my name was mentioned. Image that! Perhaps because I am quite vocal (and polished) at IEP and other school meetings. Therefore, Ms. Murphy called me literally "out of the blue".

I talked to my wife about it and she gave me this piece of free advice (and there's a reason it's free). she said, "You can do it, just please don't say anything stupid". Arrrgh! another red line.

Thanks for the follow-up details, Fletch (and the laugh re: Moore). Perhaps you will keep us posted as this develops.

And thanks for noticing I was away Gary. I suspect some were hoping it was a permanent hiatus. Alas, it was just a month-long respite with family and friends, both here in the States and abroad (actually, several women . . . I kid).

Him: Tomato, Tah-mah-to. Instead of learning from me, I prefer the term, being 'amazed' instead.


Oh, and confusion, is what I do well. Just do the right thing in life and you won't have to keep up with me. always
