    • The recording of Brownstone on Live Era is taken from the show at Wembley Stadium, London, UK on 1991.08.31 (Apart from the vocals, but that goes without saying). The part where Axl is telling the crowd to back up is not from that gig or any other show we have any recordings of, that includes both soundboard and audience recordings. To my ears it sounds like it was recorded in a room with a lot of natural reverb so we can probably rule out that the rant is re-recorded. But a recording from an indoor arena would most certainly make Axl's voice have that sound and a lot songs of Live Era are recorded at a show at Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, NV on 1992.01.25 and that is a show that we have barely any non-Live Era recordings of (apart from Yesterdays and November Rain). Thomas & Mack Center is an indoor arena with a capacity of 15.000, a room like that would certainly give Axl's voice that reverb. In other words, my educated guess is that the part on Live Era where Axl is asking the crowd to take a step back is from the 1992.01.25 show at Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, NV.
    • Why? why not? old bands release music all the time. Look at Maiden for example. Priest. Even Tool dabbles in it sometimes. Axl said he would "love" to release new music, Slash and the spine are back in the band and want to do it, and they don't need to sell a lot of albums cause the Gn'R brand is making hundreds of millions from the tour. Also: the art. It comes first right after making half a billion $ playing mostly 30 year old tunes. Either they release new music or they are a complete joke. I'm naive and an optimist so I still think there's a chance. I understand the need to cash in after not playing together for 20 years, but at some point a real band needs to release new material. Comes with the territory of being a musician. I think Axl waits until everything is perfect, until all the conditions are just right for a release so he ends up releasing 1 album in 20 years on average which is, honestly, hilariously shitty and sad. No other band does that. I wonder why.  
    • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Ya’llllllllllllllllll some mean fans up in here on a  diehard fan board. Funny,   . @double talkin jive mfkr  @adamsapple   I just find it , AxSxD  tour amazing from a newsy standpoint. The numbers and sold out shows are amazing . Whatever AxSxD is selling, people are buying.  Look out, just my thinking, Forbes mag. If Kim Kartrashian and Kylie J got on or in the mag, well,  AxSxD , maybe so.  I have reading around here some fans want to hear new music, new cd , but I think why? Rock stations play classic rock.   Music is bought on line.Thing is , my opinion, they are pulling in major money, very little press over these  4 years, I doubt they write new music.  They cannot write and sing , as AARP aged middle aged men, Rocket Queens or Out Ta Get Mes.  GnR lived through it all to become  rich, old men.  It is a funny story. Yeah, Steven might have the last laugh. Just my op ....knowing nothing.....but y’all posts are so sooo funny. 
    •   Don't forget the repetitive skip at the end of Paradise City. How a record company allows that to end up on the version approved for release is beyond me.
    • Again, one of those lyrics that sounds great when you’re 11 *gasp*...he EVEN hates his mummy!
