    • 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.  
    • The real problem is there's no money in it. So you don't get the fuck you value of having all that swearing and controversy over it but making tons of money off it.  So maybe it would be something more mature. Aerosmith were sober but addicted to sex on Pump.  Axl has more to offer as an artist but that story arc that started on UYI seemed to come full circle on CD.  The more I think about it, the more I think hitting another hot spot creatively looks unlikely. I can see they've been marinading material and maybe evolving it and past stuff coming back into play, more for a self titled album which spans the whole of GNR's career. But then why not just put a best of out of whatever reps them now. Like these tour set lists.  Maybe Axl will turn into a Roger Waters figure putting something out in 10 years time. 
    • More touring, then a lot more touring. Probably a theater tour of some sort once they've done all the stadiums and arenas as many times as the market will bare. 
    • oooh i can see your true colors... i see red
    • Thanks for posting that link. It's a nice curiosity from a graphic design perspective. Such a shame that those machines were made just before the band crashed.
