    • Just pictures?

      This thread is my best attempt:    
    • I would definitely like to hear all that, and who knows what they have there.  I just feel like with Axl, Slash and Duff working together it might hark back to that, but then maybe they aren't that fire anymore. So then Axl's more artistic approach has some appeal. But that wasn't really appreciated on CD.  But the actual creative moment just doesn't seem to be there, the real need and something to say.  I think what I'm trying to say is I have no idea. 
    • Keep in mind though, any new GNR material we hear will likely contain lyrics axl wrote in his 30s. That being said... I believe this tour will continue for awhile... after hitting all the arenas in the u.s., they may go back to Europe, maybe do a theater tour of smaller venues, possibly some acoustic gigs, etc.  I believe they will eventually release a new album, most likely containing lyrics axl wrote for the 2nd (and/or 3rd) CD album that never surfaced, and almost certainly containing most or all of the vocal tracks axl has already recorded, with slash and duff either reworking parts of previous members, or writing completely new music to go with Axl's vocals, lyrics, and melodies. When will it come out? Probably past the point of when it would be most impactful, but I'm still looking forward to it!
    • The thing with Steve is, he can sing the old material like he needs to sing it, I saw him back then on the Season's End tour and it was okay. I don't know, maybe he was just too focused on hitting every single note and wanted to proof he's a good singer and completely forgot about the lyrics on his own songs. I also think the band itself didn't really know what they wanted to do for quite a while. Let's be honest,  Holidays in Eden was really awful, there's such a big "I want to have success in the charts" stamp on it, it was terrible for the most part. There are some good songs on it, but most of it is just generic. Then they released Brave, and Brave is really a good album, I wonder why they didn't just follow that direction. The following albums again were much worse, I think the problem there is that H. uses almost exclusivley his higher register and falsetto and he messes around way too much with the vocals, it just doesn't sound good to me. Fish doesn't care that much about singing cleanly, actually his vocals are pretty dirty and rough at times, but that's exactly what takes his songs to another level. Fish never sings a song, he's always telling a story instead and emphasizes each syllable accordingly. To make it a bit more clear: "Is this your car?/ Is this your car?/ Is this your car?" , slightly different meaning depending on what you emphasize, Fish does this just perfectly in his lyrics. It's more like he's just speaking to you than singing a song and perfectly fits his storytelling. He also has a very dynamic style of singing, his vocie going up and down and from lower register to high register, falsetto, back to low and changing between loud voice/normal voice/whisper/cry within a matter of just a few syllables. He also always got that edge he can put to his voice if needed like in "Fugazi"  when he sings "insane" or in "He knows you know" at "you've got", "you know" those little screams. And last not least his lyrics of course, they are always pure art, he's a fucking poet! One of the best lyricists around for sure. It's always difficult to describe what makes a singer outstanding, but Fish defninitely is one of them. However, I have to say that Steve seems to have improved quite a bit over the years, he finally uses his middle and lower register and his singing isn't that badly all the same anymore. Seems like he's heading towards the right direction, not the same level as Fish of course, but it's hard to compete with the poet himself. P.S.: Since I try to spread the word whenever possible, you may like this band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3jeNK3aO4c&list=PLN36l7qmA95qUT2ufYeUz5BsuCzXbTx2A Very uniques style, I love them.
