- Sarah Rodman, Boston Herald

It seems fitting that the one person who has stuck with Axl Rose through all the drama surrounding Guns N' Roses in the past decade is named Dizzy.

A little loss of equilibrium would be a natural reaction to the radical ups and downs that the one-time L.A. metal gods, who play the FleetCenter tomorrow, have been through since their last two albums of original material were released in 1991.

But keyboardist Dizzy Reed believes fans and critics of the band will be pleased when ``Chinese Democracy'' finally arrives in record stores next year.

That remains to be seen and heard. This is, after all, an album that has been in the works for seven long years . . . an album over which control became such a thorny issue that guitarists Slash, Izzy Stradlin and Gilby Clarke, drummer Matt Sorum and bassist Duff McKagan all preferred to leave the multiplatinum group rather than wrestle with the temperamental Rose.

The amiable Reed has never wavered in his loyalty to Rose - who rescued the keyboardist from homelessness with an offer to join the band in 1990 - and believes people will see why when the album is finally released.

``I definitely believe in it a thousand percent and I have no plan B,'' he said with a laugh from an Albany tour stop.

Musically, Reed said, the album will combine the contributions and influences of the new members with the unmistakable guitar ferocity and epic pop contortions of the much-loved material from the ``Appetite for Destruction'' and ``Use Your Illusion'' albums.

``There's something new around every corner, like an amusement park,'' he said, referring to the disparate new sounds. ``When you add the guitars and you add Axl, that's what makes it work, and that's what makes it Guns N' Roses. There's a little something for everybody, and I think people will dig it.''

Reed stresses that ``Chinese Democracy'' is very much a band project, with all new members contributing and collaborating, and not just The Axl Rose Show, even though the singer is acknowledged as a benevolent dictator with ultimate veto powers.

For the record, Guns N' Roses - which has sold 80 million records - is now a very large democratic group, an octet sporting solid industry pedigrees.cw2

In addition to Reed and Rose, band members are drummer Brian Mantia, late of Primus; former Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck; bassist Tommy Stinson, a founding member of beloved garage punk band the Replacements; keyboardist Chris Pitman, who has recorded with Tool and Blinker the Star; bizarro avant guitarist Buckethead, he of the KFC chapeau and ``Halloween'' mask; and guitarist Richard Fortus, who has played with everyone from the Psychedelic Furs to 'N Sync. (Upon hearing that last bit of news, Reed is gleeful. ``I'm going start giving him (expletive) tonight, because I didn't know that.'')

That being said, do these eight people really add up to something that should be called Guns N' Roses?

``To me, having been there through the entire thing, it wasn't like Axl said, `OK, everyone, you're gone and here's a new band and we're Guns N' Roses,' '' Reed said. ``Everyone else from the old band chose to quit, and they quit one at a time, and they were replaced by someone else, so to me it still is Guns N' Roses.''

And to some fans as well. Reed reports that the crowds, although only half-capacity in some cities, have been ``going nuts - it's been really cool.'' (They went a little too nuts in Vancouver, B.C., causing $100,000 damage when the opening show of the tour was canceled at the last minute.)

The crowds are not only eating up such classics as ``Welcome to the Jungle'' and ``Sweet Child O' Mine,'' said Reed, they're also grooving to the four new ``Chinese'' tunes in the show.

``Some people actually know the words to some of the songs, which is kind of strange,'' said the 39-year-old Cleveland-bred rocker. ``The magic of the Internet seems to have something to do with that.''

As far as magic happening between band members, Reed said, it hasn't been easy accommodating eight creative musicians.

``It's been kind of a struggle at times, but everyone's professional and everyone knows what's at stake here, how big this could be, so everyone's come in ready to work, and most of the people have been able to put their egos aside when they need to,'' he said.

Playing live has helped them gel as a band, and for his part Reed is having a ball. ``I live to get up onstage and perform, and so to be able to do it in front of lots and lots of crazy people who are digging it, that's what it's all about.''

He will be relieved when the record finally comes out, however, admitting with a laugh that there were times when he felt like saying to Rose, ``Dude, it's ready!''

``To be honest, I thought we were close a few times,'' he said. ``And then something happened, someone quit or the bottom has fallen out in some way. Occasionally there's been a one-step-forward, two-steps-back kind of thing going on.

``But,'' he adds decisively, ``it's very close to being ready.''

Guns N' Roses plays the FleetCenter tomorrow. Tickets are $35-$65. Call 617-931-2000.

ok im really tired but im going to write a quick review and i hope this makes sense

The fleet center was packed, it was a near sell out, very few empty seats, and i would think they were sold but the scalpers couldnt sell them.

First off, cky they sucked. Nuff said. Mix master mike, i was very impressed. I didnt think i was going to like him but he was really good. It takes a lot of talent to do what he does, and i liked it.

I rant into killing vector in his BH custom, it was great, he got a lot of comements and he has a funny story to tell you all, but i wont ruin it for him, ill let him tell it. My brother and I talked to him for 1/2 the nite and he was very cool.

I ran into ang and bonnie, let me just say WOW!! you two are very pretty and your hair was cool.

Tomass, i saw you for a few and im sorry we didnt get to chat, i hope u are glad you went to the show.

My michelle, it was nice meeting you and talkin to u for a few, and did i see you flash? OR was that someone else?

I think that is everyone i ran into, if not, sorry im just tired.

Now on to the show. all i have to say is, this is thebest concert i have ever gone to. Before tonite i thought tool was (2 mons ago) but this band has come along way since rio.

Axl was wearing a red sox jersery then he changed into celtics jesery, then finally into a bruins jersery. Axl sound better than ever, and the bootlegs dont do him justice. HE sounds better than he did back in late 92/ early 93.

HE was running around like a mad man, people around me where like DAMN axl sounds great and i cant belive he is running around like that.

Axl's mic was turned up very loud and you could hear him perfect, there was NO audio problems at all.

Axl had a few rants, the one about Vancover, the reviews about the songs sounding dated, and one im sorry to say about Izzy. HE said, izzy was always pissed he couldnt hear himself, but that is because the tech would always turn is amp down bc he was always so far gone he would be playing the wrong song in the wrong key.

Axl seemed in a great mood and he was very playful. HE did that piano thing where he looks at teh crowd and people loved it. HE also kept doing this little dance (of joy) and people got a kick out of it.

I was very impressed with axl everyone else was also. I have never heard a crowd THAT loud before for a show, i have been to over 50 shows and this the crowd was really into it.

BH was wearing all black. His solo was awesome, and everyone seemed to love it, esp when he played starwars, and someother song, whihc i forget the name, He then started handing out toys. His robot dance was great too and the crowd ate it up.

He was dead on tonite and sounded great, i think everyone was amazed how great this guy was, and he got the loudest ovation when axl was going thru band intros.

For the people that think BH doesnt do much, he was running round the stage like a mad man, even amost tripped a few times too.

Robin was wearing a white suit, he played pretty good, but he fucked up his nov rain solo and one other. HIs first solo i thought was ok but his 2nd the one before PC was awesome. Finck is getting better at playing the old songs, he didnt f*ck up LALD, he playedthat perfect which i was inpressed with. Another thing which stuck out. Im not sure if it has always been this way, but BH took the first two SCOM solos and robin had the last. I could have swore before it was reversed. BTW robin played the into perfect, i know on a few of the boots he fucked them up but tonite he played it great.

Fortus, i forget what he was wearing, but he reminds me of izzy. He played pretty damn good but he to fucked up his Nov rain solo. I dont know what it was with that song on this nite but robin and richard messed up. My bro even told me, that didnt sound right. ABout the YCMB into, i dont know if they fucked up or changed it, but it didnt different, but after the into it was played flawelessly.

Tommy was wearing all plaid, and he seemed to have he most fun. He looks like he really enjoys being up there and he played the songs very well and i didnt hear him f*ck up once.

Brain, ihave no clue what he was wearing but he didnt f*ck up once, he sounded great.

Dizzy and Chris, i also forget what they were wearing but t hey did a good job.

All i have to say is, people really need to go see this tour. They new band is IMO better than the old band. They played the songs pretty much prefect with just a few ruff spots but that is the beaty of playing live. If this show doesnt get a great review then who ever gives it should be fired. The whole band has now gelled and they sound great together. The new band played PC better than the old band. DAmn this song with 3 guitarist sound very powerful.

About the new songs, the crowd was realy into them and they were well recieved. I did see a few people singing along to them.

After the show, going outside, everyone was screaming and cheering, Axl is fucking back and axl sounded great etc etc.

That is my review for now the set list was the same but there were in a diff order than most shows IE KOHD was one of the first songs played.

If i had to rate this show id give a 9.5/10 I would have given it a 10/10 if they had nailed Nov rain.

I loved this show, and i only wish i was going to see them in ct or ny.
