    • I know he did it with AC/DC for almost the entirety of each song, but expecting any singer to use rasp (vocal compression) constantly throughout 2 years of touring is a sure way to kill a voice. He knows how to do it properly, that's what the coach is for... but even with performing the correct technique perfectly to get rasp you're still damaging your voice, it's an unnatural way to sing. I can defend that, because of the limitations involved. I can't defend breathlessness or singing without power which he does on a fairly regular basis.  It is quite likely that he is in fact saving his voice to make it through the tour. If he goes back to AC/DC and uses full on rasp again... well I can't explain that, other than 1. he may be more motivated being in AC/DC or 2. he thinks the guns songs sound better these days with a clean vocal, while AC/DC needs a gravel voice.
    • I heard it live , the helium made a number of appearances , not "pro tools" 
    • WRONG! I tried to like CD, as I said, it's overproduced , has some of the elements we hear today from talentless hacks such as Kanye and Bieber, where all these smoke screens are required to give the illusion of music only we don't want to be tricked , and can't be , because we are looking for music ! So of course it's different live , there are not 100 engineers polishing it into a useless shiny rock . And slash brings style , that's key . The music is changed at a fundamental level , I never liked sorry or better , until I heard them live, Sorry you can't understand the reasons why and have decided to couch my comment in some old argument you had that doesn't apply here . What are you 5, On X members side? I like GnR , I like music , and CD songs live sound completely different for the reasons I gave . Yes, slash fixing it is a reason why. Did I say CD was axl's magnus opus? It can use more work but for what the final product was , it's much better live for the reasons cited.
    • @Tom2112, I am by NO means s CD hater, quite the opposite. I have ALWAYS saw the beauty of that album. Having said that, I also can't ignore that it was heavy on the roses and light on the guns. Instead of guns, axl tried to get a bunch of hired guns to fill those shoes. Also about 1/4 of the album could be considered Numetal, so it has a lot going on, which I don't dislike.  We could argue over the solos to TIL, sorry, better, CD. Do you prefer Slash or the album versions, and go back and fourth and not really get anywhere. But to be honest I'm not even really talking about the main guitar solos, I'm talking about Slash's guitar work in general. I'm sorry, but Slash's work at THIS concert, on those CD songs is BETTER than what's on the album. He adds new elements, he does indeed help give them new life. All 4 of those songs are HARDER now than they EVER were before, including on the album. Why? They have guns in them finally.
