  2. LENNY KRAVITZ RECALLS ‘FLUID’ STUDIO EXPERIENCE WITH SLASH Lenny Kravitz recalled the “fluid” experience of reuniting with former schoolmate Slash for his 1991 album Mama Said, and explained why he let the Guns N’ Roses guitarist record only one take of his solo for “Fields of Joy.” The pair reconnected at an awards ceremony and decided to work together while Kravitz was in the process of making his second LP, and the first collaboration was the addition of a lead guitar track to the already-written song. “Slash and I went to high school together, but we hadn’t seen each other since,” Kravitz told Music Radar in a recent interview. “When my first album was out, I went to the American Music Awards and Guns N’ Roses were getting awards and they were sitting in front of me. He and I just kept looking at each other. "Then we realized we knew each other from school. So we started talking and were excited to meet each other again, especially the fact we were both making music. I was doing some overdub sessions for Mama Said, so he came in and played the solo on ‘Fields of Joy.’ It was a one-take solo and he wanted to play it over again, but I wouldn’t let him. I always love first takes.” Having enjoyed the experience so much, they decided to write a song together on a later occasion. “We started to jam, and that riff to ‘Always on the Run’ ended up coming out,” Kravitz recalled. “The song just wrote itself. To cut the track, he played the riff, I was on the drums. So it was just guitar and drums – that was it – and we got through the take and then I played my guitar part, which is the counter-rhythm part. Then I played the bass. He played his solo and then I wrote the horn arrangement, had the horn players come in and that was that. Did the vocals. It was a great session. Really fluid, it was very quick and spontaneous.” ... https://ultimateclassicrock.com/lenny-kravitz-slash/
  3. Because someone claimed the kids themselves asked to sleep in Jacksons bed. Hence that's why I am discussing whether that is something a child would do. You should appreciate it, you obviously don't know much about kids.
  4. Why the obsession with this? Your obsession with the ''sleeping in the bed'' thing is sixteen years out-of-date. This whole world debated this as a consequence of Living With Michael Jackson in 2003!! The allegations in Leaving Neverland go much much further and are far more heinous. Leaving Neverland almost reduces the bed issue to an irrelevancy.
  5. I'm still gutted by what we could have had for the Cleveland litho. Two of our landmarks that, admittedly aren't masterpieces, but are big, imposing, somewhat iconic, and have presence. Part of our history. Instantly recognizable to locals. And the smashed guitar just ties it in to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, where dozens, or even hundreds of one of a kind historical guitars reside. We could have celebrated this: Instead we are "mocked" for perhaps our lowest moment other than when LeBron left.....the Cuyahoga River Fire of 1969. I swear Clevelanders never get a goddamn break. Well. It could have been worse than all this combined. I sobbed and snotted uncontrollably with rage and heartbreak when this happened. I'm undoubtedly taking this shit to my grave. Why oh, why oh, why oh, did my parents have to bone in Ohio???
  6. Been watching that thing abut Maddie Mccan on Netflix I stick to my guns Gerry did it
  7. The argument is still that the kids themselves asked to sleep with Jackson in his bed. Or did you actually start discussing something else?
  8. Nobody is even making such an insinuation as such a hypothetical scenario (to the best of our knowledge) simply didn't happen. Again, if you understood anything about the case you'd know this.
  9. ...not to the extent you seem to be, and as I said, the mechanism when a kid wants to sleep in the bed with an adult is for comfort. It would be just as absurd if a child of 6 went up to a celebrity and said, "hey I really like you, can I sleep in your bed tonight?" as it would be if you went, "hey [insert name of famous crickets player], I adore you, can I sleep in your bed tonight?". It is simply not how it works. Neither you nor kids wants to sleep in a bed with someone simply because they are famous. Kids want to crawl into the bed of primary caregivers because they need comfort. And I find it equally unlikely that a child would go, "Ooh I am scared now, Michael, can I sleep in your bed tonight?", unless, of course, you are now going to argue that Michael Jackson showed they horror movies just before bedtime. But of course, now that I have mentioned that argument I am sure you will come up with something else.

    I don't recall ever seeing it on ebay. I remember just one of those "Concert tees" sites from over ten years ago had them, but then they sold out, and now those tees shirts are even harder to come by. People just sell stuff on amazon and ebay these days.
  11. Wade Robson first met Michael whilst being a Michael Jackson impersonator haha! Aged seven, To say he was not besotted with Michael, even before he met Michael, is the underestimation of the century. PS You'd know all this if you watched the thing.
  12. None of these things work the way on children as you think they do. Kids around the age of 6 aren't mesmerized by these things like you seem to be. Kids sleep in the bed with an adult when they crave comfort from their primary caregiver. Not to cozy up to a celebrity.
  13. If every adult had Jackson's celebrity on account of his genius; if every other adult could project a media persona globally of an altruistic asexual/quasi-androgynous personality; if every adult had the millions to create a citadel dedicated to children...
  14. Err, Jackson was an adult and I am sure kids recognized that. A weird-ass ghoulish adult sure, and one that behaved in inappropriate -- and fun! -- ways for what is expected of adults, but still an adult. And kids wouldn't ask Jackson, or any other adult except a parent, if they could sleep in his bed with him, because kids only do that when they need comfort or with other kids. So no.
  15. General Chat / Random Musings

    Yeah I had to do one of them last summer bit of a cunt had to go to Hemel for it but better than points
  16. Chinese Democracy is a GREAT FUCKIN ALBUM. There’s no denying it. There’s so many “ layers.” After recording it 6 times over and using a dozen + guitarists it took on many personalities and tones. Axl was all about the current guitarist in the band throughout the entire time it was being recorded. Even though he kept buckethead and Fincks parts, you can hear so many other licks/fills/solos/rhythms going on. I’ve listened to that album a million times and I am still hearing new sounds inside the song. Some songs have 5 different guitarists on them. As a musician I can be the 1st to tell you that “ less is more.” Nothing on Chinese Democracy had a slash guitar tone at all. When they play the Chinese songs live and it has 2 guitars with slash’s heavy tone, the songs sound fuckin brilliant and incredible. Even Richard changed his guitar tone. Richards tone and gear is much different then it was from 2002-2014. Fortus adapted to find a way to surround slash’s heavy tone. No longer uses any Gibson’s. With slash duff and Axl workin together it’s gunna sound a lot different then chines tone wise.
  17. Rose's description of the May thing is complete nonsense, pure Axl speak. I've read that passage on numerous occasions and it makes absolutely no sense.
  18. Exactly my point: ''adults''. You are proceeding through this discussion as if this adult was not Michael Jackson, and clearly have not watched the documentary so it is a waste of time (me) commencing any further discussing this with you.
  19. Well it'll always be their word against, the deceased, Michael's testimony. If you are judging solely off something more substantial legally then Michael is innocent as he was found not guilty on all charges in 2005, and even in the Chandler pay-off of 1994 Jackson ''disclaims any liability to, and denies any wrongful acts".
  20. But no one has said anything like this. Complete straw man argument. The discussion has been on whether children are likely to invite themselves into the beds of adults who are not their parents.
  21. Today
  22. After hearing the guitar work on CD album I think it will be interesting what Slash sounds like on the next album. I kinda expected more Bucket, Finck & Fortus orientated work on the chinese leftovers, it will be interesting what Slash brings to the table. Personally guitar wise I feel TWAT is best guitar sounds since the Illusions.
  23. Guns N Roses future as far as touring goes really depends on an album. The NOTL tour was one of the biggest tours ever. That went 3 years,but they pretty much exhausted everything GNR had to offer. Without new material another tour would be as lame as kiss. They all want to make a new record and all of us true GNR fans have really been waiting since 1994. Before the “ reunion “ Guns/ Axl was hard at work in the studio. Yes there’s left over material from Chinese Democracy that wasn’t used and you can count on that being used. Axl isn’t selfish or an asshole when it comes to creating records. There were creative differences back from 94-97 among many other issues plaguing the band and it didn’t work out. However when it came to Chinese Democracy everybody in the band and who worked with the band had input. Just because Axl has material, doesn’t mean that the song will stay that way. It’s gunna have the GNR vibe n sound we all want. It’s not gunna be an AFD or illusions record so don’t go comparing it to that once it comes out. Those Chinese songs they currently play with slash and duff sound killer and even better. How they reprised Better and perform it now is so much cooler and a much better song then it was on the album. Same i5h Chinese Democracy. You got slashes heavier guitar tone and this rawness to it. New album WHEN it comes out will do well.
  24. Because he's Slash. The sound of Gn'R.
  25. Plus Slash has SMKC as another creative outlet for some other songs he’s got so i reckon Slash will be more open to the type of songs Axl has sitting there. And because it’s Slash on guitar it’ll at least have a more GNR sound to it.
  26. I think it will be little adjustments you know? like they talked over the phone during the UYI album makin'. move a note there, change a note here, nothing too damaging to the free spirit of the legend.
  27. I maintain that the docu is propagande, specifically produced to transfer an idea. Since these people are suing the jackson estate for a lot of money, it is in their interest to do so and the docu is a companion piece to their actions. It's no different than a pepsi commercial in that respect, or those commercials of washing powder that promise your laundry will be "whiter than white". In a case like this, where it is "word against word", you'll have a much better chance of getting to the truth, with "neutral" pieces of evidence like the house search or the latoya statements.
