  1. It’s funny that Axl took 15 years to compete Chinese Democracy, but once he came back, he hasn’t stopped touring since. (and even joined AC/DC in his spare time). I wonder if he’ll join Aerosmith as an additional side project, while Steve Tyler explores his Country side 😉

  2. The real story are the bands and artists on that list. Not one of them is a new artist or rock band. They’re all stuck playing 60 band multi day festivals and touring nonstop to make a living.
