    • Slash just posted a pic of Angus on IG  
    • I don't get the hate for Dizzy. he's always been fairly easy going, he hasn't caused any shit or done anything to really deserve the bad feelings, he certainly doesn't detract from the songs or the live performances like some current members of the band either imo.  In regards to the discussion about the piano. I think the fact that Axl used it and excelled with on those songs is what drew me to GNR as a teenager. Yeah sure I loved Jungle & YCBM, nightrain and easy as much as the next big fan (amongst other songs) but they were diverse in their sound by 92 and regardless of whether the illusions were bloated or not, the diversity in their sound is what has stood the test of time.  If they'd have made another fast rocker album after AFD, I'm fairly certain it doesnt get to AFD levels. Civil war and YCBM are definitely good enough to match or be on AFD, but what else? The illusions may be a mess of everything that guns had left on the table but it just works. The piano songs took gnr beyond just being a fast hard rock band, it's what helped them stand the test of time. If gnr had of just made another hard rock album after appetite I'm fairly certain their legacy doesn't hold as much weight.  Axl gets a lot of shit for a lot of things and rightly so. But he's definitely under appreciated in terms of how the legacy of what WAS released and the direction he took the illusions records in, I think the departures of the izzy and Steven kind of subdue that point but had they been on those albums I feel like Axl would have got a lot more respect for the vision he had of those 2 albums and the piano work etc  yes the albums were bloated and there's noises and computer generated shit (synths) or what not that I find annoying. But overall, if they hadn't of moved forward beyond another basic rock album, the legacy from those 3 albums, would probably not be as great, the diversity is why I can keep listening. 
    • I'm also interested in his time with Tori Amos in the 80ies. I Hope he gets into it as well.
    • I genuinely remember a guy recording an IRS demo from outside a window from an office at universal/interscope.
