The only significant (meaning music people who weren't hardcores gave a shit about) pieces of music that ever came out of any post gnr project were Slither and Fall to Pieces off Contraband. Other than that, outside these forums, nobody gives a shit about post 1993 material. Sad but true.
From what I've heard of Steven's new album, it actually is pretty good. His drumming still sounds great and I've always loved his drum sound. I hate how I have to enjoy the sounds of the elements of original Gn'R separately, because the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts, but at least they still all make music and are alive. I do like Steven's new music.
I have NEVER thought Steven was a bad drummer, it's just just that perhaps he should "shut up" and drum IMO
I bet no one is going to give a shit about his album except for hardcores.
That is true.
However, for me personally speaking, there aren't many significant pieces of music that come out anymore that I particularly care about. I think Steven should not shut up. The reality of matters is, as far as I or any other fan can tell, that original Gn'R will not be reuniting any time in the foreseeable future, except maybe for the Hall of Fame. Steven has inside info I'm sure, and we do not. Maybe it is obvious to him that they will not be reuniting even for the HoF. I'm sure even he knows that there aren't a lot of people out there that follow his musical ventures anymore. Right now, with the Hall of Fame, he'sgoing to be getting more press than he has in a while or will have for a while. He's putting himself in the news as much as he can by saying these things, and all publicity is good publicity. I didn't even know he had an album out. Then he says his new album is better than Chinese, and so I looked it up and listened to a couple tracks and I like it. Now he's made a sale with me. If he didn't talk, he wouldn't have because I didn't know he even had a new album out. He's got nothing to lose.
