  1. What intrigues me is, does Slash have long-term intentions with this whole thing and do you think this is something the big three have discussed? I would love to know if Slash still saw himself being in GNR five years from now.

    You've already admitted how little you know of his music Len, so I think you're really not in the know on this one.
  3. Prince 1958 - 2016

    It's true, he was. The man was Niles Rodgers at rhythm, Jimi at lead and to top it off, one of the most prolific and giftedsinger/songwriters of our time. He will go down with the greatest.
  4. Prince 1958 - 2016

    Yeah, I just saw someone on Facebook talk about what a great song Kiss is and it's like, you ain't got the first fucking clue mate. I know most artists are defined by a relatively small number of tracks (at least in the minds of the general public), but in Prince's case, his body of work is so sprawling, so ambitious and so creative that it almost feels disrespectful to define him that same way. People just don't know what we've lost here. If you're reading this and you don't really know what I'm referring to, check out a song like Power Fantastic, or Crystal Ball, or All My Dreams. I mean, I could go on all day, but to me, this is the real Prince. Avant garde, ethereal, psychedelic.... people really don't know the extent of this mans talents. Most people haven't even begun to scratch the surface with this guy. Evenif you own every record the man put out, you still haven't even started with him.

    I think Prince was always an accidental superstar. Really, he was far more suited to being an indie, cult artist as much of his music goes way over the heads of Joe Public. We live in very unsophisticated times, Prince releasing music today is literally like casting pearls before the swine and I don't care if that comes off as snobby or elitist, because anybody who is truly familiar with his body of work knows exactly what I'm talking about.

    As I'm sure most of you know, I'm a massive Prince fan. Him and MJ were like Gods to me growing up. For about ten years I listened to nothing but MJ and Prince. To me, Prince was just so much cooler than practically everybody else out there. When I think of Prince, yes of course there's the incredible art (which most people are criminally oblivious to), but one of the main things that I think of was just how cool he was. He was the best and he fucking knew it. You could put him ona stage with ANYONE, and he would own them. He had a talent that almost seemed supernatural, it was so intuitive to him, he literally breathed music. I've seen him share a stage with many artists over the years and you always came away feeling bad for the other artists. Nobody stood a fucking chance when that little dude was onstage. I consider myself so lucky to have witnessed him doing his thing multiple times over the yearsand they are memoriesI will cherish.

  10. Dot Cottons fanny everytime.
  11. Slash's take on CD songs

    Anyone else find his take on TIL to be kind of arrogant? It just sounds like mindless guitar wanking and is devoid of any of the melody from the original. Even DJ did a better job on TIL. I do wonder if this attitude pisses Axl off. Of course, I don't expect Slash to play the original solo note for note, but what he plays currently just doesn't fit the song at all and comes off a bit arrogant (showing a lack of respect to the original imo).
  12. Ah, Len you creep me out when you take an interest in GNR. Go back to the Off Topic forums where you belong.
  13. Still think this reunion is a pile of shite. But I'm just bitter, so what do I know?
  14. Invincible went to number 1 in the US as well.
  15. I'm a huge fan of the old band myself, you've taken it out of context. I'm referring to the nutjobs who think AFD is the only true GNR album.
