    • Should the first 500k copies of GNR's next album be vinyl only?
      You must have missed school the day they handed out crystal balls. 
    • What went wrong with NUGNR?
      It never really gained acceptance. It failed in the sense that the Slash-less line ups were always in the shadow of the classic line up. Perhaps he never had a chance to do that cause Slash is such a big part of the sound and image, or maybe if he would have released an album every 3 or 4 years, starting in 1999 it might have been more successful, but it's only a failure if you compare it to old Guns and if you don't really take into account Axl's limited options without Izzy, Slash, and Duff. I'd say all in all he did it his way and did not give up until the album was completed and released while still remaining rich. From the ruins of the old band he at least made something that worked for years if you think about it. But it did not sell 10 million copies and the stadium thing is something they can kinda only do together. Axl still performed to a relatively big audiences with new Guns.

    • What went wrong with NUGNR?
      A face saving exercise, surely - the vast majority of the audiences will not want to hear those songs. The ultimate proof that Nugnr failed is that, by reuniting with Slash and Duff, he automatically jumped from casinos into stadiums.
    • What went wrong with NUGNR?
      He's also playing some Chinese tunes with Slash and Duff. And we don't know what Axl's plans for CD ll are, or the material in the vault. Slash reworked the Better intro live so maybe he can rework some of the material in the studio to make it more Guns. Band members left. Axl could have not predicted what will happen with Duff and then Slash. It seems looking back now, that he didn't pull the trigger on CD ll with Bumble and DJ in the band, he didn't include them like Paul, Robin, Bucket, and even Fortus. New Guns is more than just 1 line up obviously, Axl basically had the studio line up and then the live line up that only played the material live for years, but Slash is playing This I Love live, and 3 other tunes from Chinese. That's not a failure imo. On the contrary, it could mean the CD ll material is something Slash will be willing to work with. If Axl actually wants to do something with this line up, I'm guessing an album of unreleased Axl tunes will come in handy. If Axl uses some material from CD ll and releases it with Slash and Duff as a Guns album, that means it's still alive. Still could shape the next potential Guns album musically.
