  1. Izzy Stradlin comments on reunion

    If we're talking purelymusically, GNR 2016 is a much better sounding band than GNR 1991. Sure we miss Izzy but it was the raw energy that made those 91 performances. It isn't fair to expect them to conjure that now, it is fair to expect a good functional show. Money disputes can get solved, there has to be a reason beyond that they didn't link up. I don't know if I would bend over backwards to invest in a guy who has been happy as a nomad for the better part of the past 25 years to commit to a 1-2 year long tour, even if that guy was special 25 years ago.
  2. Do you think Jon Bon jovi and Vince Neil read about this tour how GNR just wakes back up and is in stadiums again and get angry?
  3. Like most songs on CD, Catcher was probably a great song 30 tacked-on ideas prior.
  4. Slash's NITLT Tour Tone

    Anyone notice the tone improved on this leg of the tour?
  5. I can't be the only one in the I don't miss Adler camp. This is a cool novelty, but he isn't even fourth of my list of GNR drummers.
  6. I like frank fine enough. Playing every song about 5-10 bpm too fast is pretty off putting, but technically speaking he's great. However, I will never understand what the huge problem is with Matt wherein he wasn't a part of this reunion.
  7. I kind have never connected how much the song Chinese Democracy sounds like velvet revolver song until Slash played on it. Not as if anyone bit off of anyone, obviously, but similar 3-4 chord drop D tunings.
  8. https://theringer.com/rebooting-axl-rose-2089c11efce5#.gyog8isby Neat essay on the reunion and the first gig. Also hails the greatest line ever written about Duff McKagan, that he looks like he walked off the cover of "casual badass" magazine.
  9. What song does he use a firebird on?
  10. What I'm saying is that the people giving Frank shit about how he plays two songSteven wrote live should recall that Steven often had difficulty playing anythinghe wrote live. No need to have been alive during the era, plenty of recorded sources to verify.
  11. It seems like you know exactly what I meant by early era GNR. Nowhere in my post do I try to put the entire band in the same boat as frank ferrer. I will say Steven is just a bad drummer, which in and of itself was charming on AFD but live the guy had problems, way worse than Frank.
  12. The way Axl spoke about a new Guns N' Roses album felt really weird, as if there is a possibility Slash wouldn't play on new Guns N' Roses material. It's like when divorced parents start dating again, but they have to temper the kid's expectations. It it can be heard as dictator Axl maintaining his control over GNR, but very possibly he isn't presuming Slash's involvement in anything and speaking for Slash to get anyone's hopes up unnecessarily. Like the child of those parents, we woke up with Mom and Dad in the kitchen drinking coffee and sharing coquettish smiles, wondering how long the dream lasts.
  13. I really can't hear how he is that bad. Go back and listening to early era GNR gigs objectively. There's playing loose, then playing sloppy, then playing like a man on too much heroin.
