Does anyone else like the current band members better than Axl?

179 posts in this topic

I have a feeling without Axl, they would have a couple of albums by now.

What do you think?

Without Axl noone would know or care what/who these guys are. Axl could have a whole diff line up in 5 years and it's be "the best ever" accd to a lot of people here. I'm just sayin......

They aren't that compatible. If they actually had to exist as a real band and write music together then they would just break up because of musical differences. On CD not even one track has two different guitarists with writing credits.

Bumblefoot is better than Axl.

A damn shame he is not nor never will be as well known as he should be. He is one of the greatest guitarists most people never heard of. Was listening to Hermit today and it still blows me away.

I like the band's work ethic more than Axl's, but I don't know how great they would creatively be without Axl's input

I think Ron, Frank and Richard could form an awesome band. Ron can sing, maybe Les Claypool can play bass.

As a musician or person? As a musician, the only member of Nu-GNR I ever liked solo wise was Buckethead.

No, i despise bumblefoot and don't care for anyone else in the band. DJ Ashba is ok cause he's attracive but he'll never be as sexy as Axl. And seriously Bumblefoot needs to groom himself regularly. He looks like a extra from a rob zombie movie with that horrible beard.

I don't like anyone in the new band except maybe Fortus. I don't really like him either, but he's the one that I mind the least. Ashba being second. If he didn't dress the way he do, I wouldn't mind him either. I dislike the rest of the band.

Every aspect technically. Bumblefoot is a better singer than Axl on a technical level. He has a much bigger range, better control of his voice, wider range of styles, etc. I'm not saying people should prefer Bumblefoot to Axl. That is up to preference. Axl is a legend. But, on a technical level Bumblefoot is a better singer.

What? No!!!!!!!

This made me laugh :lol:

Ps. I think, Axl has great musicians currently working with him. And when his singing sucks at certain shows, they are saving him from total disaster. But better than Axl, wouldn't say that.

Range: If you count the whistle range, then yes, perhaps (we don't know if Axl can do that). But without the whistle range I am not so sure. Another thing is whether you can sing dynamically from the low register up to the very high register. I believe Axl displayes a four octave range in There Was A Time. Do you have any examples of Bumbles doing the same (and no, I am not interested in freakish whistle range which is often a disconnected range that can only be reached by jumping over a shitload of octaves).

Control of voice: Again I am sceptical. How do you even measure such things without it becoming a subjective opinion.

Wider range of styles: I am not familiar with all of Bumbles work, but I know Axl has a tremendous range of styles. How do you even measure such a thing?
