Mr Brownstone on Letterman! Hells yea!

You think they'll play "Chinese Democracy"?

clap your hands say yeah.

They're probably playing at some riverboat casino in indiana's afternoon all-you-can-eat right now.

The UK Tribute Band said they will not be covering any songs from Chinese Democracy because it taints (hahahahah) the legacy of the original GnR. Not sure if Mr. Brownstone feels the same way.

Mr. Brownstone doesnt care about anything other than drinking and rocking.

The Smiths and Radiohead tribute bands at the Bell House this past Friday night were awesome! Too bad the crowd totally blew.

I wonder if they will be as drunk as usual when they play Letterman. Last time I saw them their Slash fell off the stage, the drummer passed out during "Patience," and their other guitarist seemed more interested in drinking the Jack than playing guitar. They still rocked and I can't wait until Letterman.

Wow! Tribute bands on Letterman. What's next? Three sold out nights of a dude looping hundreds of mashup loops standing in front of a laptop?

Oh wait...

I guess I'd better buy my Wii and be a pretend...whatever.

a) never watched letterman

I know for a fact that those guys are drinking real booze on stage. At their New Years show last year the fake 'Izzy' poured a shot into my girlfriend's mouth and she almost puked!

How about Tragedy - the awesome Bee Gees heavy metal tribute band?

Did anyone else catch their performance last night? I've never seen them in concert before and was very excited to see them tear it up on TV but .... wow what a lackluster performance.

Either the entire band needed to be about 100x drunker or I did. Probably both.

Their Axl had little to no energy and looked bored on stage. The rest of the band was decent enough but just didn't seem interested, especially their drummer.

Weak, I wish I could see them in a proper concert but won't be around for the 28th show.

Dickless Doug you should DEF check them out at Irving Plaza to see what they are really all about. I think they were a little overwhelmed by the whole Letterman/national TV experience, not to mention that they had to seriously curb their regular performance due to CBS's demands (and they didn't have their usual bottle of Jack - yes, its real). This was a watered down version indeed, but a mere glimpse into the amazingness that is Mr. Brownstone. Do yourself a favor and check them out live. You will not be disappointed!

agreed with brownstone groupie. watching them live is a spiritual experience. i mean, if spiritual experiences involved multi-colored spandex, much inappropriate groping...umm...dancing, and copious amounts of whiskey.

Damn. I wonder why Slaywhore (all girls, all Slayer, all the time!) wasn't invited to be on Letterman...
