    • i have never seen or heard of any Estranged demo. at this point, on this forum, if there was anything circulating someone would know === now, seriosuly, can you imagine how there must be a zillion of "non-final" recordings of "Estranged" in some fucking vault? like... 1) early axl-only recordings, piano and voice. these are the takes that will likely show how much of the song axl actually wrote and arranged by himself. did he give the song to the band on the exactly same structure as it ended on the album? or did the band rearranged some of it? how does the song sounds before/without slash's "killer guitar melodies"? how does it sound without the GNR (izzy, slash and duff) treatment (arrangement)? axl-only recordings would likely answer these questions...   2) early recordings of the band learning/rehearsing/practicing/arranging the song - ok, so let's assume that axl gave this song to the band and "let the band do its thing". duff and slash said more than once that it wan't the most fun they ever had to arrange the axl ballads and axl also mentioned a few times how hard it was to make the band work on these tracks. All that info likely means that the band took some time (maybe a lot of time) to learn and arrange the song. the final arrangement to Estranged is fantastic so it should be truly spetacular to "follow" the band through who knows how many takes of the song they did until they got it right. Was Axl in the studio during the arrangements of the song? Was he playing piano and singing? Or wasnt he around? In that case, has Izzy or Duff sung "vocal guides" during rehearsals/practice sessions? Did they record these takes? will we ever hear them? 3) live rehearsals, pre-production takes (outtakes), final demo(s). once the song was arranged and structures, they must have done quite a few takes (maybe some live takes with everyone playing together) just to be able to listen to the whole thing. they likely did some final demo. all those takes must be really raw and fascinating.  4) final recording sessions - song is done, complete, written, arranged and rehearsed. time to fucking record it. By all accounts they did one song per day on the final recording sessions. So we get at least a few good hours of "final recordings" of "Estranged". Those would also be nice to listen. these type of recordings must exist for each and every song on Use Your Illusion. Seriously, this shit is the holly grail of GNR

    • The worst musical performance in the history of live television. THe entire package was a bad joke.   The sad thing is that this was not a one-off. The entire year of 2002 was a damn train wreck.
    • It's reading post like this that make me happy to be a GnR fan. The fact that regardless of what everyone's oppions are, people are still caught up in the magic of the band, the music and the atmosphere. Glad you enjoyed it!!
    •   It was Brain.  He was amazing. Best GNR drummer.  ( I dont count Josh Freese since he never played live) BTW Axl was awful on this, soo out of tune, his voice was shit.
