  1. Wild Horses Tokyo 92 Cover

    Really good. Nailed it. Fun idea too! How long did it take to learn both parts? Always thought GIlby's solo parts of the intro sounded more challenging than Slash's part.
  2. Interviews + Media reactions to AXL/DC, good and bad

    Some great reviews. Clips i've heard from the show have been great. I'm tempted to make a trip to Europe for one of these, and think I'd be more keen for that than real the Not in hits Life Time tour at the moment. So good
  3. ACDC and Axl say hello to fans (Video)

    Agree. Without getting into a whole 'axl's look' conversation. IMO how he is with ACDC is striped down, for Axl anyways, he's looking the best he has in a while and also seems way more comfortable and content than he has for fucking ages. I do think, if the ACDC stuff goes well, a lot of what Axl experiences by hanging out with ACDC and how they tour and manage things, will impact him positively with the Not in this Lifetime tour.
  4. Axl talks about being in AC/DC

    COuld you post some examples of ppl's feedback please? Im not on FB.
  5. ACDC and Axl say hello to fans (Video)

    lol so awkward. Especially the little looks everyone gives after they speak, to someone or something over the viewers right shoulder....almost as if to say "is that right?....that what you wanted, we good now?"
  6. Axl - Thunderstruck Full Rehearsal

    I can't wait for this. I'd imagine most refunded tickets would be picked up by Guns fans, such a rare opportunity and never would have predicted it. Recordings sound great so far, and promising. Hearing Axl belt out songs other than GNR is going to be fantastic. I'm hoping that he isn't in the chair though, do we know when that boot comes off in relation to ACDC gigs? The 'couple weeks' mentioned in the TMZ video, will that tie into a ACDCs first gig and him being mobile? I wonder if he'll behave like he does in GNR gigs, running off for Oxygen top ups, costume changes etc. How will he engage with crowd? Never seen Axl in this light, so will be fun to see. We know he is super respectful to bands/musicians he admires, so I think this is going to Axl in his best form he can deliver - both vocally and professionally. Also, for someone who is notoriously famous for not rehearsing, its cool hearing evidence of him smashing out songs in rehearsal. Always enjoyed hearing him do other songs outside GNR ones, and this is going to be that on fucking steroids. Brilliant. Can't happen soon enough.
  7. I still find it intriguing that Steven has been completely silent on the whole reunion thing.
  8. Axl flips the switch heading to europe with AC/DC

    Not really the topic for it, but a couple posts made me think about it. If the tables were turned, and Axl couldn't finish a bunch of dates for GNR, who would you want to fill in? Hard question On topic - quite looking forward to hearing Axl sing with ACDC, in fact, I can't wait. Hopefully he'll have the boot off by the time ACDC shows start and is mobile again. I'd imagine regarding setlists, they'll need to consider Axl's voice (range, fitness, nuancesetc) as well as general crowd pleases.
  9. Slash's take on CD songs

    Been unable to watch/listen to anything in ages, so just be relying on reviews and stuff. However just watched CD from Coachella (not sure which night) from another thread, and that sounded great - Slash's solo was brilliant, perfect mix of him doing his own thing plus holding respect for the song itself, he nailed it (and despite my nickname, I'm not the biggest Slash fan guitarwise).
  10. Fortus and Izzy

    Adler has always been the 'joke' of the originals. There is plenty of support for Sorum on the forum, and for that matter Adler (more positive support about him over the last year or so than any other year tbh). Izzy has had a bit of stick, noticed a couple of posts, but come off it...... hardly ppl ripping into him. Sounds like you're on the tied old bandwagon of assuming everyone or anyone who doesn't agree with you or has different impressions of members than you, means they're Axl fan boys. So sick of reading stuff like that, equivalant of a cheap shot or a 'i know you are but what am I' argument This current lineup is the most positive I've seen this forum regarding Guns in a long time, when there are discussions about current lineups, ex players, 'what if' scenarios around lineups and appearance, who plays what better etc.etc. etc. Anyways On Topic - exicted to see how the FOrtus & Slash combo evolves, but i don't think the Wish You Were Here jam is any indication of their chemistry or how well they play off each other. Slash is noodling around on the main licks/solos of the song, which lots of ppl can do, whilst Fortus is 'soloing' the melody,.....not sure that shows thatthey're a good combo or not.
  11. Suicide Squad/Jared Leto as the Joker Thread

    Why do you need to know about the characters before seeing a movie to care about them and be invested in them? Surely you've watched and enjoyed many movies where you haven't known the characters prior? Or do you mean, you don't know the characters enough to judge it from the trailer? Like you I don't know much about them either - harley quin i know through games, the others i've little experience of (perhaps deadshot more than the rest, but not enough to judge if Smith is good or bad as him from my interpretation of the comic book character). Its a refreshing change going into a comic book movie not knowing much about them and having preconceived ideas/feelings/attachments etc. I'm not sure about this movie though, I wouldn't be suprised if I enjoyed it, but also wouldn't be suprised if it was complete dogs. I generally only watch movies in the cinema these days, so will make an effort with this as well, go in with an open mind not taking it too seriously and see what happens. It can't be worse the batman vs superman, which was far too serious, way too long, and a massive let down and waste of potentially good story & chars.
  12. Some song's solos are integral to the entire song itself. Sort of like Estranged and November Rain, the melody of said songs, are key to the song (especially for weathered listeners / fans of the song).....changing solos drastically in these types of songs, changes the song itself as well. I think TWAT is one of these, and Slash will have to be closer to the original than not - there is still plenty of room for him to push it elsewhere and his own spin, style and sound to it, which will be great. In fact, there is probably more room in TWAT to do this, than there wasin Estranged & Nov. Rain for FInck/Bucket/Bumble. Lots of ppl have mentioned how difficult the TWAT solos are, but when listening i don't necessarily hear how its any more advanced than other things Slash has done in the past. Its perhaps more liner,structured, and specific, but I don't think is technically out of Slashs realm (more stylistically out). Pretty sure they'll nail the song, and going by the soundcheck version....sounds like that statement may be true. Slightly off topic - i'm slowly starting to think this might be the best modern incarnation of the band, and like how they're not ignoring CD songs (however, to me, Better just stands out / doesn't fit with this band in the set. THe other CD songs so far I don't get that vibe).
  13. I'm hoping they drop something for Record Day. However I doubt they will. Even just a reissue of Jungle perhaps with a track or two from Troubadour would be cool.
  14. Is there more of Better than what is in OPs post? Ppl commenting on Slash sounding good on Better, all i heard was snippets of the heavy breakdown/bridge. Hardly enough to judge anyone or thing. Am i missing something? Great vids, pumped for more!
  15. Regards of looks and talent. I'll judge her, in GNR, solely on what i hear live from her. If its like what i could hear of Pittman (rare to be able to hear his contributions imo for the most part), and the additions don't benefit the sounds from my ears - she'll be in the Pittman camp for me (bar being a douche). They could grow the band with another 8 ppl of both sexesdoing various bits and pieces for all i care, so long as the result sounded good. No time for additional ppl when either what they offer is poor, or what they offer can barely be heard/noticed (both points relate to why Pittman was disliked imo - that and him being an already bit of a knob).
