  1. This most interesting thing to me about this, bar it being rather petty, is the picture of the lady holding the 'Where's Izzy?' sign shows that venues continue to use those folding seat chairs. Is that serious? Is this standard in arenas in America?I thought that got stopped decades ago? Seen heaps of ppl get injured during crowd rushes to the stage and shit in the past, due to those chairs being setup as if everyone will be seated calmly. Weird.
  2. Are we GN'R 'fans' or 'Experts'?

    Experts, due to our absolute geekery of the subject, and over analysis of everything. We're also aware when articles and docos etc get things completely wrong. Can filter through the bullshit and pick out the truth, know the background of the original lineup and all subsequent lineups to an innate level of detail etc etc. However, it's also easy to say we're bad experts, as often our interpretations and viewpoints and the like are coloured by our fandom eyes
  3. Story about Axl's yellow jacket

    is that the actual yellow jacket in question?when i read this originally i assumed it was something from gnr's prime years, not later years.
  4. New Troubadour Footage

    People complaining about the drums need to have their ears checked or go have a basic few drum lessons. GNR version KOHD is one of the easiest songs to play, from guitar, drums, bass perspective. Frank's drumming, from what we can hear, more or less matches to the record from the bass, snare, and fills perspective. Not exact of course, but essentially the same. He is in time as well. WHat more could you ask for? The SOUND of the drums I don't particularly lik (which I'm guessing this is what ppl are complaining about more than what is being played by Frank), but that isn't due to his playing, that's due to the recording device's mic, the acoustics of the room, the mix, etc. etc Having Izzy/Gilby, and Matt/Steven doing KOTD wouldn't be much different. To nail the GNR version you essentially need Slash and Slash tone in semi decent form, and crucially Axl's voice correct. THe rhythm section of bass and bass/snare with drums is key as well, but they're so rudimental that those parts are extremely easy to replicate (so without disrespect to Duff and Matt - any musicans worth their salt can pull it off). ANd before everyone complains that I'm ripping into DUff n' Matt, quite frankly they nailed it originally by being able to make simple sound good and be confident to go with simple instead of over complicating things. My two cents.
  5. Bumblefoot Interview: I Can Be A 'Hired Gun' In Small Doses

    I don't think the 'hired gun' comment is directed to Guns as such, or in relation to his time with them. Easy to see why it can be interpreted as that by most, but I think he means session musician in general as apposed to his time in Guns. 'Hired gun' is a pretty common term, personally don't think it was him having a dig at all.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Axl talks about being in AC/DC

    COuld you post some examples of ppl's feedback please? Im not on FB.
  10. 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?"
  11. 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.
  12. I still find it intriguing that Steven has been completely silent on the whole reunion thing.
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
  15. 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.
