    Axl holding resentment, anger, or insecurity about something? That's the most absurd thing I've ever heard.

    Credit Mitch Lafon from his Twitter. This is cool. This is exactly how it was like back then. Whatever city they were in it was huge. I remember when they hit Mpls and it was all over local news too. Such a kick ass time. -

    Very impressive numbers and I'm happy I got to see it a couple of times. I'm more happy for all of the Slash fans that wanted to see him back very badly.

    After listening to the 4 new (complete) songs countless times since they've leaked... Atlas is easily my least favourite. Brian May is the highlight of the song and the guitars overall are pretty good but the song just drags and isn't as interesting as CITR or Prostitute, etc. State Of Grace has really grown on me too... and Hardschool. Basically Atlas is the only one I don't listen to regularly, it's kinda boring. 1. State Of Grace 2. Perhaps 3. Hardschool 4. Atlas ----- 5. KOHD Acoustic 6. Eye On You 7. everything else with vocals

    What's wrong with you guys? The solo is nothing special but it fits the song. It's totally fine. Are you expecting every solo to be magic? How's that possible. In GNR he had ok solos, so he did with every other band of his own. With his solos on LTD he proved he still got it and he will prove it again with his next release. This whole song is nothing special but it's ok. It's a simple r'n'r-tune with a simple solo. So what?

    I think the question should be rephrased "Is Axl over Stephanie Seymour?" The answer is "no" Guy needed to throw his money at snake-oil salesmen to try and justify why the women he abused left him The best we can hope for is Mr. I'm Not Bipolar Even Though I Admitted I Was staying on his meds and not harming anyone else - the man is incapable of remorse No one feels sorry that you got dumped by a Supermodel, Axl - move the fuck on with your life

    I haven't listened to the leaks much at all in the past month or so. The last time I did, Atlas was my go to.

    DJ is the main reason why my love for GNR was taken to the next level of obsession best addition the band has seen mostly due to his fan interaction and technical ability to rehash the GNR songs in a way that really provide a creative outlet to listen to them and appreciate them that much more, i think we really only scratched the surface with DJ, it's really too bad he didn't accept coming back with GNR for NITL. Axl's vision for NITL was on point here by having DJ included in the lineup, very much in tune with what the public wanted, if only he could have brought in Paul Huge as well... oh well live and learn

    I actually didnt like side A when I was a kid back in 88 listening to it that much, but side B just made me crave so much more. I appreciate and enjoy side A much more these days, but Lies always was and still is mostly about side B for me.

    I'm really bummed for the people that got fucked over. The only thing that I'm hoping for is that something good comes out of this and the UYI set (assuming one happens) is way more fairly priced to begin with.

    Lol Axl is the one who really don’t give a fuck about anything. Slash is at least active. He doesn’t write as good things as 30 years ago but at least he is doing something unlike Axl.

    When you say ''England'', not really in that the expansion of the thirteen colonies occurred after American Independence (1783). This is the 13 colonies (''English Territory'') which became the United States, Various historical events led to the expansion of the United States, the Louisiana Purchase (1803), the annexation of Texas and Mexican-American War (1845-48) featuring most predominantly.

    I agree, Axl Rose's name is synonymous with his great humanitarian, racial equality, and philanthropic efforts.

    After more than three years and 158 concerts, Guns N' Roses' Not In This Lifetime… Tour has come to a close. And, the final numbers are in: $584.2 million grossed from 5,371,891 tickets sold across six continents' worth of shows. The tour, which began in 2016, concludes as the No. 3 highest-grossing tour in the history of Billboard Boxscore. GNR is represented by UTA's Ken Fermaglich and ITB's Rod MacSween. The tour was promoted by Live Nation. The tour reunited Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagen, who -- before reconvening in 2016, hadn't played a show together since 1993. After warming up at the 500-capacity The Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif. on April 1, 2016, a newly reunited Guns N’ Roses gave an unofficial kick-off to the Not in This Lifetime… Tourwith two shows at the then-newly opened T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The April 8-9, 2016 concerts sold out at 28,889 tickets and a blistering $7.3 million gross according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore. Three-and-a-half years and six continents later, GNR returned to Vegas to wrap their sprawling global trek with two final shows at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Nov. 2-3. From 2016 to 2019, GNR maintained a busy schedule, maximizing their global potential with trips around the world. The tour was rooted in North America, with 87 of 158 shows (55%) taking place in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. But there were also multiple visits to Europe (31 shows), Asia (16) and South America (15), plus eight dates in Australia and one in Johannesburg, South Africa. With more time in North America, the band was able to play a more even mix of stadiums and arenas, as opposed to quicker runs of only stadiums internationally. Their home-continent touring amounted to $258.5 million and 2.3 million tickets sold, still far ahead of Europe’s $166.1 million. The tour’s top performing engagements are representative of the band’s global approach. They broke $10 million on five separate engagements throughout the run (London; East Rutherford, N.J.; Tallinn, Estonia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Sao Paulo, Brazil). Similarly, they eclipsed 100,000 tickets on four occasions (London; Mexico City; Buenos Aires; East Rutherford). The London Stadium shows on June 16-17, 2017 were the highlights of the tour on both accounts, with a $17.7 million gross and a paid attendance tally of 140,877. The Not in This Lifetime… Tour marked the first time that Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan played together since the 1993 Use Your Illusion Tour and their reunion proved the power of the band’s classic lineup. On a per-show basis, the band leveled up from an average gross of $617,000 on the 2012-14 Appetite for Democracy Tour to $3.7 million each night on the Not in This Lifetime… Tour. Fans may have thought a reunion (much less a reunion that has lasted three years so far) was impossible but at the close of the decade, here we are: Guns N’ Roses mounted the third most successful tour of all time, closing with a string of sold-out shows in the trek’s fourth and final year. https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/chart-beat/8544389/guns-n-roses-in-this-lifetime-tour

    October 1987. I was watching MTV with my father. We had just got cable at the time. A video montage came on of George Michael, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and a guy in an electric chair screaming like a banshee. My father said that's a great band. So Jungle was my first song that got me hooked on GNR.

    I dislike Momenertary to the extent that I cant really speak to it in specifics but the new versions with Mason that Ive heard so far have very 'small' sounding drums. I guess they could only take up as much room as the electro drums did. So there is a lack of resonance to my ears. To me Mason is synonymous with big snares and toms. The snare on the redo's especially sounds tiny - both physically and audibly - to me. But Im not fussed either way. I love that song, but also I cant think of the last time I listened to it. Same goes for Piper as an album. I first heard it on Relics, which I think is the same version as Piper, but they always sounded different to me - maybe the mastering on the two albums is different enough? I should look into that. Im not fond of the versions on Tonight Lets All Make Love in London. That entire release kinda fell flat imho. The riff has a really fascinating origin story. And the track also birthed the riff for Let There Be More Light from A Saucerful of Secrets as well. Now Im primed to give it a listen

    All the stats from this tour are kind of silly and don't mean anything. The tour was stretched out for almost 4 years.. Most bands could have had 2 or 3 tours in that time.

    I love listening to the vynyl because it sounds more organic. It must have been 89 when i got the record and always used to spin it when getting ready for school in the mornings. Funnily enough move to the city and mama kin were the 2 songs that got played on rotation.

    That's what I love about art, everyone likes something different. Since the initial leaks, Atlas has moved up to the top spot for me. 1. Atlas Shrugged 2. State Of Grace 3. Perhaps 4. Hardschool 5. Silkworms

    So Fernando goes up to Slash and Duff and tells them to rehearse and put on the setlist a song they have no intention of playing just because he's having a feud with some randoms on Reddit? Don't reckon

    I hope they don't turn in to Aerosmith who haven't played North of Donington since 1997! Guns have sold more albums in the UK than any other European country. 3 gigs is piss poor

    This would also lineup with Richard saying in 2014 that they were working on a song that Slash helped to “plant the seed for” way back in 1996. Could also explain why they chose Hard School, of all songs, to rehearse recently.

    They'll wish these people, Izzy, Popcorn, Matt, happy birthday on social media but they'll certainly not let them play on the songs they created live before an adoring public.

    Back in July 1996, the band worked on a song for a new Jackie Chan movie. I have a theory that this song went by the working title "Jackie Chan" but would later, in 2000, be called "Hard School" and that Axl, in 2008, remembered it still as "Jackie Chan". If so, Hard School had its beginnings way back in 1996 (which might explain why it, compared to most other tracks, existed in a finished form on the locker CDs from 2000). The sessions in July 1996 were without Slash. He would join for a few weeks' session in August/September before leaving. Slash would also say that when they worked together in 1996, it was mostly on Axl's songs. If so, Hard School is likely an Axl song that first was worked on by Axl, Duff and Matt (and perhaps Dizzy), before Slash came in and probably added to it. Then, some time later, Paul Huge/Robin Finck/Buckethead added their versions/additions to the song. Just a theory, but it might explain why Axl referred to it as "Jackie Chan".

    Axl's issue was people bootlegging the new songs they were performing. He doesn't have to worry about that these days.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback, I'm getting lots of pm of people asking me for mega links or torrents etc. The reason I put my stuff on Usenet is because the files there are untouchable and will be there for at least 6 years (some providers grant up to 10 years) Yes, it has a learning curve but there's plenty of good tutorials on YT for it. Yes for a good and stable dload you need an pay server account (i don't earn from that). It really blows my mind that certain people tell me that they don't wanna spend 2 hours to go through the hassle of getting into Usenet and ask me to upload it to a different place. I mean WTF uploading 10gb will take me 8 hours combined with the remastering, rendering, synching, creating chapters etc etc. will take me an average of at least 40 hours. Believe me, I wish I could put them in a torrent or whatever easier solution but it will be taken down as soon as a certain individual notices it and will have me lose my account. There are plenty of free trial options where u can test a pay server for free sometimes even for a few days, which is more than enough time to leech all my releases. Usenet only makes you dload at full speed and doesn't require you to upload. So if you don't feel like spending some time in learning how to deal with Usenet don't come PMing me for mega links cause I don't have any and if I had them I wouldn't give them to people demanding me to upload to mega for their convenience cause afraid to invest some time in getting it while it took met at least 10 times more time to create it. Really as much as i hate saying this i can't do shit about it and we all know who's to blame for that. Thank you
