    • He didn't get the backstage pass form Universal Music Australia he got that from Alan Niven
    • I own most of the collectibles I saw in the video, including the pinball machine. I wonder if I could be considered one of CA's biggest GN'R fans? Where's my backstage pass?
    • It's good for sure.  Member when Axl busted into that club in NYC and was playing 2 cds with 10 tracks on each...someone with a significantly lower post count than me probably heard The General. There's no justice for the working man these days.  But 20 songs, two versions of Better, 19 songs. Minus 14 for CD, minus OMG and Silkworms. Potentially someone unwittingly heard 3 unreleased CD II songs. 
    • There are gnr songs that make control harder to have bc the phrasing and amount of words to navigate are a tremendous challenge for a singer, but then there's songs like November Rain that have no reason to have high falsetto/ Mickey vocals...the song isn't fast, the words aren't falling right on top of each other.  It gets harder to make excuses when you listen to Back in Black...nearly impossible for anyone to sing that song at that range and with each line falling right over the next one...how does Axl get the "Don't push your luck just get out of my way" line out...it's amazing and really kills any theory that You Could Be Mine or Paradise City are any more of a challenge than anything on back in black.  Someone mentioned the vocal coach...I think that's huge to Axl's ACDC success, if he went in and worked with the same coach on GNR material on phrasing and control, tone, and vocal excercises then I have no doubt Axl could at the very least make the entire GNR set sound amazing...maybe not 2010 and maybe not 88-93 but he could eliminate the Mickey vocals and create a more natural and louder projected vocal for the songs we hear him struggle with.  When I say projection I'm talking about something that's very noticeable when you are watching a show live.  the audio wasn't great at this show. Axl's voice was a bit hidden in the mix but everyone in that stadium heard the clarity and depth of Axl's vocals on the outro to patience. It was beautiful, his voice soared over the mix and he sounded amazing. These are things I wish he'd do more of especially on songs like November Rain where it sounded like he was mumbling into the microphone.  Correct me if I'm wrong but for those that went to an ACDC show with Axl, he had to come out really well in the mix. Did his voice project better to you there than at a GNR show? 
    • I think covers are the same song, so TWAT would just be Slash's version.  Like Duff said they see something different in the CD material than Axl. Maybe it's just the melody or the riffs or dynamics. They can break down any music and play it their way.
