  1. Richard Fortus Interview

    Not selling too well in NZ either. Bar the cheapest sections. It really pisses me off when bands charge heaps for a ticket, the super fans buy early all excited, and then the show fails to sell like they expected and the price drops - you can never ask for the difference back either.
  2. New Zealand TV Reports From 1993

    I haven't quite picked up the accent (kiwis don't think so, but rest of the world does), but I get really annoyed at myself for including 'ay?' at the end of most comments :/ Been here about 10 years, give or take.
  3. Sweet thanks. I'ts morning here, and was looking for some morning coffee reading. Read some of your other stuff and dug it (the garageband piece was real interesting & insightful).
  4. Thanks for that. Blind Melon are one of my favourite bands, and one of those bands I've teetered on going to GnR geek levels with. I've always found it interesting, that Axl has more than once referenced Hoon covering Don't Cry - however I'm not sure how he would have heard it, GNR played it before AFD was released but Hoon wouldn't have been around to watch these shows during that time as he was Indiana based. From reading of Blind Melon he wasn't mates with Axl & Izzy back in Indiana either. So makes me think Axl is just adding a bit of myth and stuff in his way of supporting a young dude from his hometown starting out. It's all irrellavant anyways and doesn't matter. Shannon Hoon was an awesome singer, great lyrics too, and a great element to great band.
  5. Is there any evidence or recordings of Blind Melon / Shannon's version of Don't Cry? I'm assuming he was covering it before meeting the Blind Melon guys.
  6. lol'd I cannot stand this guy's articles and that fucking photo which always follows them. I'd pay good money to have everything related to him filtered off my internet experience on all devices and networks. Edit: More on topic comment - didn't bother reading the article due to my feelings mentioned above, however it's hardly news is it. All contracts come to and end, and most get renewed/extended. Sometimes parties in the contract re-negotiate elements of the contract,come the time the extension looms, sometimes the original contract will state certain elements of said contract are to be reviewed prior to extending it further (eg. pay).Contracts coming to and end is hardly news worthy.
  7. 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?
  8. Chinese Democracy Secrets

    Just started watching this, and only a few seconds 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.
  9. 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'.
  10. Anyone got a link to interview? Has it been uploaded anywhere? Keen to watch it before reading through comments/reactions on here Thanks
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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 ( or a Rega RP ( 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).
  15. 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).
