That's awesome

Have these demos never been released before? Now I'm curious.

They were going to some years ago, but I think it was Axl who was trying to prevent the release.

Hopefully Axl doesn't bother with it, it would've been one thing to put it out in '91-'92 when they could've flooded copies in the GNR section, but at this point, it's a curio piece of his early days in LA. If Axl wants to put his Bailey trio material out (assuming someone tape recorded it), people would want to hear that, too.

If Axl joins in he'll be doing overdubs for the next 5 years.

To be fair, he probably finds it embarrassing. :P Still, I'd love to get my hands on it.

Maybe, but at least it wouldn't be seen as cashing in on GNR the way it would've been around the time UYI was released. I think there's importance to hearing an artist starting out, and at least it wasn't like Steely Dan, where there were hundreds of versions of the same demo tape being repackaged over and over. It's something thing that will be of interest to a handful of people.

Yeah but I would also love to hear how he sang before Hollywood Rose

I remember reading that Axl used to sing in a low voice before he started singing in his signature voice. Would these contain a lower voice?

You guys do realise there's a few snippets lying around on youtube, right?

They sound AWESOME and are probably our best chance at getting music any time soon, even though the dude holding them has milked it a bit - Had run-ins with Axl's lawyer didn't he?

Well, this rather confuses me. Rapidfire was supposed to be the band Axl joined in '83, and Axl didn't start using his signature high voice until at least '84. Axl was in a band with Izzy and Chris Weber originally called AXL but renamed Rose, and it was Izzy and Chris, after hearing Axl singing along to Hair of the Dog while he was in the shower, who told Axl to just start singing like that all the time.

Yeah, i have this "song" but i think the music is obviously fake (but good, i dig the riffs), but the vocals are real and maybe from the Rapidfire days....

also this "song" rumoured to be the tape from the Zakk Wylde sessions.

I guess if you want to find out if those songs are Rapidfire, you have the Facebook page they can confirm it on.
