  1. You're not wrong, it could be anything. Just seems like the obvious thing for Guns to do during the down time, since there still seems to be a good amount of talk and buzz regarding the next album in the wake of the reunion's success. Though, striking while the iron's hot hasn't exactly been one of Axl's strong points post break-up. 2002 and 2006 come to mind. Hopefully having the media and vast majority of the fan base rooting for him this time will make a difference. Not to mention the assumed full support of the label and industry as a whole right now.
  2. You might be right in your thinking, but that doesn't sound like a very "Axl" thing to do as far as scrapping it all and starting from scratch, other than perhaps his vocals. Chinese was re-recorded an unknown amount of times and many of his vocals recorded in 99-00 still ended up on the album, along with guitar bits. IRS, TWAT, Chinese, & Catcher come to mind.
  3. Yes, I'm well aware that this has been brought up in the Social Media thread, but...but...How the f*ck aren't we talking more about this??? So Slash has been spotted a couple times in the past week hanging out and recording in an LA based studio. Sure, nothing has been officially announced as to what he's up to/recording. But I also do not imagine GNR or Slash would broadcast it if he was in fact doing studio work for GNR's next album. Last summer, Axl let it be known that he showed both Slash & Duff the other half of Chinese and that "they liked it". Could this be Slash putting his touches on those tracks? Slash giving what would have been the second half of Chinese a more "classic" Guns vibe certainly wouldn't be a bad thing. And hell, I'm sure they sound pretty good as they are. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/upcoming_releases/new_gnr_slash_is_recording_something_in_the_studio.html
  4. A studio is an odd place to visit just because. Maybe he's checking out their setup for possible Guns recording? Probably not, but I suppose anything is possible.
  5. So DC films just poached Joss Whedon to direct and write Batgirl, which will exist within Affleck’s Batuniverse. That’s just huge, he’s Marvel’s biggest writer/director. Whedon, Matt Reeves for Batman, and possibly Matthew Vaughn for Man of Steel 2. Looks like a very positive course correction to me... Now just officially sign Mathew Vaughn to write and direct Man of Steel 2 and my ass is sold on the future post Justice League. And while we're wishing, Jordan Peele to re-write and direct The Flash.
  6. Doubtful. I honestly believe that the release of Chinese Democracy (and the long road it took to get there) burned Axl out completely in terms of taking actual steps towards finishing and, get this, RELEASING whatever else they have. You'd think having Slash back in the fold would be a 'no brainer' as to getting him to record on those tracks, like, yesterday and putting out a record to support the rest of the touring. But alas, unless they're doing some top secret recording right now it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. A lot of people say that Slash won't stick around if there's no new music. I tend to disagree. He's likely making better money than he's seen since he left the band in 1996, and not only that, he has his "legacy" back now that he's a part of GNR again. Something I'm sure he was missing and resentful to be missing out on these past years. He'll likely stay as long as they keep announcing new tour legs, unfortunately. Unfortunate because he's involvement (or lack therof) could be the key to getting an album sooner than later.
  7. I sure hope so! Haven't heard anything other than rumors though.
  8. I sure wish the people who are currently in Guns N' Roses were allowed to talk about Guns N' Roses.
  9. Same here. And it's a shame because Slash does some really great work on his last 2 solo records, but as soon as Myles starts singing I'm immediately turned off. Basically, he's a poor man's Axl. Hits all the high notes, but with none of Axl's soul, furocity, or stage presence. And I honestly don't know how Slash goes back to that whenever things quiet down with Guns. That is, playing Guns heavy sets with Myles on vocals after they put out another potential album. Just another reason for GNR to put out an album and just keep the big train rolling. Hope Axl understands new music may be the glue that keeps this lineup together for the foreseeable future.
  10. It's a no brainer regarding what *should* be done. They won't though.....God dammit.
  11. Gun to my head, I'd say no. Perhaps guest appearances, but not a full AFD5 reunion tour, at least not this year. Would certainly be cool though!
  12. As lame as it is that we're likely to get an AC/DC album before a Guns album, it's hard to be completely bummed about this. Sounds like Angus is doing the brunt of the writing, perhaps even lyrics too. Could be cool I guess. But damn do I want a GNR album with Slash...
  13. I think that's a healthy attitude to have. And lets not forget how amazing the shows have been up to this point. In my dojo anything more, be it an album or full AFD5 reunion, it will just be even more icing on the cake.
  14. Yeah, it's not exactly something that gives you good feels when you can so clearly see what motivates these guys at the end of the day and after all the tough talk. I think they, especially the big 3, look at Guns N' Roses as their baby and their rightful legacy. Almost like Slash & Duff have been reunited with their estranged kids coming back into the fold like this and reclaiming what's rightfully theirs after all these years. Sure it would probably be nice to take their buddies along for the ride, but not at their own expense. Which I guess I can understand, especially after all these years. And yes, I would not rule out a full reunion of the AFD5 just yet. Part of the "good thing" about corporate rock acts like The Stones, U2 & Metallica is that even they need to re-brand eventually to keep things running. This often comes in the form of a new album...or a full reunion of sorts. Would be awfully cool if the AFD5 did something similar to the Up Close And Personal theater tour to celebrate AFD30. Just spit balling, but there are many possibilities for the future.
