  1. Anything Goes cover

    Great playing, well done. Looks like you're having heaps of fun too. What did you use to record and do the effects?
  2. Chinese Democracy Secrets

    Just started watching this, and only a few seconds in......is that auto tune I hear on Bach's vocals w/ Sorry? EDIT: Ignore my comment - i see someone mentioned this on page one. My bad.
  3. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    SLighty off topic but i have to respond to this. I can't stand both these songs being in the setlist, with Nov Rain there as well, and solo spots, its makes for such a slow monotonous gig/setlist and eats up far too much time with 'slow it down a bit' music. TIL as well, needs to go from the set for the same reasons, but at least its a little 'newer'.
  4. Anyone got a link to interview? Has it been uploaded anywhere? Keen to watch it before reading through comments/reactions on here Thanks
  5. Some of the better blues playing I've seen from Slash. Normally he botches these type of gigs and sounds pretty horrible, so much so I was a little worried when seeing this original thread open (similar I guess how ppl sometimes worry about Axl and his voice w/ some things). Seriously, normally he comes in with a screaming les paul doing heaps of generic badly timed repeated rock licks in these situations. That was heaps better, refrained playing, nice tones, good to listen too :), and finally hear him playing these tributes and nailing it.
  6. 2002 VMA's rehearsal footage

    TBH I wouldn't pay stupid money for any hoarded bootleg, its ridiculous that folk put such extreme dollar values on these things. Each to their own though, if someone wants to fork out a small fortune so be it. I agree with your comments that whoever is hoarding this (if for monetary reasons) then they've missed the boat. However disagree with things like HOB. Those were iconic moments in the history of the band, I'd love to still see and would probably watch relativelyregularly the first HOB show. Fascinating time around that particular show, here's hoping it eventually gets leaked and revealed.
  7. 2002 VMA's rehearsal footage

    Where'd you hear / read this? Any more info on this 'depression' period? I was in full GnR geek mode round this time, gobblering up as much information and rumors and stories as possible,and don't recall the spoons comment. Super interesting though if you can point me somewhere plz?
  8. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Anywhere between 500USD to 800USD (assuming you deal in US dollars, but that i think is the rough conversion from NZD). Was thinking a Pro-ject Debut (http://www.project-audio.com/main.php?prod=debutcarbondc&cat=turntables&lang=en) or a Rega RP (http://www.rega.co.uk/rp1.html). I've survived years on a beat up old cheap player, and its time to move on as I'm probably doing more damage than good. No particular reason for these ones other than their ease of accessibility to me (and potential ability to test them out prior to purchase).
  9. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Mine arrived this morning, completely forgot about it as well, so was welcome suprise when the dick courier banged on the door this morning. Such a professional well put together cared for package. The main piece, the Pearl Jam live records, is absolutely brilliant - from the playing, song selection, audio etc. Really pleased I signed back up to vault subscription. Dumb question: Looking to upgrade my old player, and noticed heaps of the modern more up market record players don't have dust protectors/covers. Why is that, and how to you stop gunk and dust from collecting on it? My old player has the shitty plastic lid cover thing, and on top of that is so much dust and stuff, that without it I would not consider playing records on the thing as they'd get fucked (or would require extensive cleaning on a far too regular basis of both player and records post and pre spinning them).
  10. Thanks for the uploads. Whatever happened to Limulus? He had great taste in music and really enjoyed his forum (if I'm thinking of the right guy, forum was something along the lines of gnrotgm.com or something).
  11. Melissa, Dizzy on Keyboard

    Yeah I appreciate and understand that (great post btw), which is why I'm holding out judgement until I witness them live - as unit / wall of sound. Frequencies of guitars, mics, amps, etc play a big part in the overall sound (and obviously the massive impact of the venue's acoustics too)so I understand the role she'd be playing here. With Pittman, I'd specifically try look/listen out for his contribution live (from the perspective of the sound as whole from the band), with no luck.
  12. Melissa, Dizzy on Keyboard

    I like her vocals in GNR, and like that she seems happy with what she does both in and out of GNR - some good vibes. Never really liked Pittman, but more importantly I could never hear the benefits of him - sometimes not even hear at all what he was playing (often just looked like he was pretending to play). Melissa is the same (though I've yet to catch this incarnation live), I don't really hear the benefits (vocals aside) - and much like Pittman, don't really hear anything at all. At least when I compare this to Pittman I saw him in the band live countless times and bar some dumb sound effects could never hear anything. I'll hold judgement until I see/hear her live, but if I can't hear anything much like Pittman days I'll have a similar opinion - is she needed, wtf is she doing? - the youtube clips and stuff her vox are welcome addition and shes got good energy.
  13. Got Diamond GA for Auckland. Didn't end up buying Wellington ones, as prices are ridiculous and layout is weird as - particularly for a venue that isn't good for music. Will be very interesting to see how sales go, I can see the far back of stadium (The few sections at $90ish) selling fast, but the rest, must not sure. I;m lucky to bein the higher range bracket of earners/income in NZ and think its way too pricey to both buy a decent ticket, and travel, and sort accommodation. And that's coming from a GnR geek, so casual/old/semi interested fans I can see forking out for it. TIme will tell tho.
  14. Its reeks of desperation to me, and like others have said it comes across cheesy ala Motley Crue and the like. Seeing as no one (from what i've heard) has had any sort of benefit from signing up to nightrain, it would pay to allocate these sections to those members - then maybe get in vip and invited models & shit to fill it up. The shows are good, but it all reeks of money money money (which is fine, but a little more decorum about it would be appreciated).
