    • AFD era Axl vs UYI Era Axl
      I think you have to agree with Axl to get what you want. I think UYI was really taken away from Niven, it was much more expansive than Izzy seemed to want to go. And Slash and Duff were hesitant. And that is actually understandable coming off AFD. Then suddenly Axl is at the piano, doing huge videos. But really all that stuff worked. But yeah Niven is still being a bitch about it after all the worldwide success that UYI had. Laugh at the videos or whinge about 10 minute ballads now, but it worked and put GNR so far beyond other rock bands at the time. So much so there was a huge backlash. Having said that maybe Niven is right in that it destroyed the band as it tore them apart at the time. They could have been a lot more commercially wise. But that's not what GNR was I guess. It always has this "this is ridiculous...but so awesome" feel for me. For me Patience was like a wtf. Then Nov Rain was too. Then 90s influences on CD too is ill advised. But it always works that's how the greats do it, you never know. They dance to their own drum. Not what others think they should do to be successful. 
    • What went wrong with NUGNR?
      I think in 1999 the stuff like Chi dem, Riad, Silkworms, Oh My God probably sounded awesome. But from what Zutaut said the label didn't hear a hit single in The Blues or Madagascar.  People say they like The Blues more but I think there was this idea to make these songs grander, more like Nov Rain. I doubt the label is sitting there going yes Chi dem is a hit, it's more how can we get 5 Nov Rains from Axl. That's the only reason to spend 10 million dollars re-recording 2000 Intentions. That's what RTB was for I guess. But then Ezrin says he hates it. Well producers of all people will say that. Kiss and Queen just aren't the same.  But what they got to by 2008 is the whole thing sounds awesome. Given the difference between Riad and This I Love it still kind of fits. And there's a lot of similar combos. Shackler's and SOD. The initial The Blues sounds too illusions it can't sit next to If the World.
