    • Probably, but if you think the song sounded better with Dj Ashba, Bumblefoot and Tommy, you might actually be crazier than me 
    • -  You said "same lineup" - you cannot have the same lineup but with different people.  So yeah my point still stands if we use the same terminology you originally used lol -  I made several points regarding Adler's interview in this thread but am too lazy to repost them, however the TL;DR version is that we as fans are not privy to a lot of shit we need to be privy to in order to claim any real kind of facts with these disagreements.  However taking what Adler says as 100 gospel is IMO not really fatual based on Adler's history the last 28 years  - or at least without spin that we need a second story to go along with it -  It isn't different than 2014, however you point is that it is all Axl's call.  So if GNR don't bust out Breakdown and instead agree upon setlists together that resemble those from a few years ago - Axl is a dictator still?  Having it be Ax's call is different than the other band members taking suggestions from Axl regarding the setlists to heart or diggin it as much themselves -  And my point still stands that it makes perfect sense for GNR to play GNR songs -  Well my point with The Seeker is equal to that of the setlist debate on a previous point -  Correct me if I am wrong, however there is zero instance of anybody playing any solos that Slash originally played on - Slash is either soloing as much on songs as he solos on before or he solos on CD songs where he never even had a solo originally in the first place - those two songs are split like they originally were in terms of different players playing different sections -  With the new music thing, all I can say is that I do not think it is at any point considered unreasonable for a band going on a huge scale long term tour with Axl doing the AC/DC thing in between some legs to not have time to go into a studio a write material, then work on the contracts, and record - get people to mix it under their supervision - master it, work out promotional deals, etc.  Making an album is a lot more than simply laying down tracks and large scale tours make it very hard for that to happen if we are assuming some new material will be written
    • Agreed! They volunteered to be a part of this, but they didn't have a choice. Axl owns the name, all those two could clearly do was lawyer up over pay and making sure Axl shows up on time. See, we agree! It's Axl's band.... no one said he was holding the other two hostage
    • Slash and Duff wanted to be part of this version of GN'R- the plan was never to cut out all the band members and start fresh, they wanted to build on what Axl had out of respect for the old-Nu line-up. They learned all the Chinese Democracy songs, that was not an Axl request. They didn't rejoin Guns n' Roses to say fuck you Axl, let's do this our way. They rejoined their band which has changed from the 90's, which they wanted back in to.
