    Source: https://www.instagram.com/p/CCLfhSxAO5Z/ After all these years I decided to publish these pictures that I've had since '92. My dad owns a photo studio and most newspapers used to develop their films there. Back in 1992 the music photographer for the local newspaper shot GNR and took about 3 films, over 100 pictures of the show, all in B&W. My dad asked the photographer if he could give me some shots and he said he only needed one pic for the story and let my dad keep the films. I kept these three shots, plus the ones from Slash, Matt, Gilby, and Duff that you can see on GNROnTour. One day during the deep cleaning of the lab, someone threw out the original films. I've kept these shots safe, I was only 9 back then, now I'm 37 with two kids, my wife thinks I'm crazy that I kept these three pictures intact through moving countries, etc. Enjoy. One day I'll tell the story how the Caracas '92 bootleg came out.

    Good to see Frank is keeping busy. Insane that he has the sheer audacity to release anything during a plague year though. EDIT: I see Fortus is involved too, so...... Good to see Fortus is keeping busy. Insane that he has the sheer audacity to release anything during a plague year though.

    Here is what he said exactly: Slash: "I’ve been pretty much a homebody [during the quarantine], but I’ve been back and forth between my studio and the house and doing a lot of writing and recording on my own. I’ve been jamming with Duff, and I’ve been jamming with Axl, and I’ve been doing stuff like that; so we’ve been getting some work done that way. But I haven’t been doing much else. I haven’t been doing any collaborations with the odd artist and whatnot – I’m basically just focusing on writing new music, and recording demos, and recording guitar stuff for Guns and whatnot."

    You may not like Slash’s solo band, but they were close to headlining festivals in Australia, along with nearly selling out 10,000 seater arenas on their last few tours here. They’re not GN’R levels sure, but they’re not just some shitty bar band either

    Still one of my fav moments of the NITL tour where they were at a festival with the Foo’s headlining the night before GNR. This is how an incredible drummer can improve GnR sound by the way. Unbelievable performance.

    Reminder of what Slash said in recent interviews before this one: Slash: "I think at the end of the day, everybody wants to have a full album released. I don't think that's really changed all that much. But there's a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than… I mean, there's always been the single, but now you sort of look at that preliminary release a little bit differently now. All things considered, it's like the Wild West out there; there is no formula for any of it. [Laughs] I haven't seen any routine kind of thing that works. I mean, you can do any one of a million different things to releasing a record. But at the end of the day, I think that we will ultimately release a full album." https://www.a-4-d.com/t4222-2019-09-09-sirius-xm-trunk-nation-interview-with-slash Speaking of Guns, have you got anything more you can share about the new album? Slash: “There’s been no definitive answer on anything and I’ll just keep to that. Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics. More than anything, it’s because of the nature of the industry right now. It’s just like, how do you want to do this? I mean there’s material and there’s recording and there’s shit going on, but we’re not really sure what we’re doing with it right now.” The music industry in 2020 is a lot different to the last time you all made a Guns record. Slash: “Yeah! And there’s a handful people who said, ’Yeah, make a record and go old school’. And there’s a handful of people that are like, ’We don’t even know what buying a record is any more!’” https://www.a-4-d.com/t4378-2020-01-22-guitar-com-slash-on-his-new-gibson-collection-playing-with-his-friends-and-the-new-gn-r-album Jude Gold: Do you play the original Appetite guitar that much? Does it sit behind... Slash: No, actually I just took it back to the locker the other day. I had it in the studio working on some Guns stuff, so... Jude Gold: And so what is the plan for Guns? There is a tour coming up? Slash: There’s everything! Jude Gold: You still didn’t put something new, I mean... Slash: No, there’s a new... We’re doing a show for the Super Bowl series and then we’re doing a South American tour, and a European tour in the summer and also coming back to the States. And it is not the Not In This Lifetime Tour. So it’s not labeled that. Jude Gold: Are you tracking right now? New stuff? Slash: Oh, there’s all kinds of stuff going on. Jude Gold: Yeah, all kind of stuff going on. Slash: (Laughs) https://www.a-4-d.com/t4674-2020-03-16-no-guitar-is-safe-podcast-a-chat-with-slash

    I went ahead and listened to it. This is what he said: "I've been jamming with Duff, and I've been jamming with Axl, and I've been doing stuff like that; so we've been getting some work done that way. I'm basically just focusing on writing new music, recording demos and recording guitar stuff for Guns."

    As much as Myles puts me to sleep and I dislike his timbre and lack of charisma, there is really no contest. In the here and now, he's a much, much better singer than Axl. He got great technique, breathing control, much more power etc. These are just facts.

    Axl will deal intensively with his voice and regularly take singing lessons and vocal training. He will have a tight daily schedule, including diet advice and a gym for build muscle and fat burning. When the time comes, the best Guns N 'Roses studio album gets his release and we see an extremely motivated Axl Rose in his best physical shape of his life, on stage with a bloody hell kickass setlist.

    @troccoli i have come out of posting retirement to give you this very special important message about a UYI BOX SET: -It needs to include as much Steven Adler as possible. This would include the entire Mates rehearsal from 1989 which includes Adler drumming on Coma. It is a travesty this is being boarded. -UYI would benefit from sounding more raw and angry. In order to do that, Dizzy Reed should be eliminated from most if not all songs. -There has got to be a You Could Be Mine demo with Steven Adler on it and we want to hear it. -get rid of sound effects on KOHD and Coma. To recap the more Adler the better and less Dizzy Reed. We want raw Appetite style rock. In fact, if there isn’t much Adler UYI material, hire him to add his drums on every UYI song and lose the keyboards and UYI will rival Appetite’s greatness. /SOB

    Pitched up a tent in the woods? sleeping in the car? Or just wandering around. I dont blame her. I guess she felt anything was preferable to being at home with him sitting in his pants playing videogames with Stella empties scattered everywhere.

    We've heard this bullshit for so long, Guns should have enough material to release a 10 disc (or more) box set of new music.

    There was a time when news of Slash writing demos and recording guitar parts for Guns would have overloaded this place with traffic. Now, thanks to fuck-face Fernando paired with Axl's inability to be forward thinking and get shit done, it's met with a collective "Meh." from the fanbase. No one can be bothered to even pretend to give a fuck anymore, because we know it all means fuck all until they actually make it a reality. Well done GNR, you pack of fucking morons. No one cares. Someone leak The General and Zodiac so we can all move on with our damn lives and put this insufferable shit show to bed already.

    In January Slash also had said he was working on Guns stuff: Of course then they were supposed to tour in the following months. I guess, with not much else to do during the quarantine, they've been spending some of their time working on demos regardless of what they had (or hadn't) done before.

    Wtf, the U.S administration is watching Axl's twitter to see what he has to say about them?

    It's not revisionism so much. I was around, and it's true that most of the world didn't know of GnR and AFD before the second half of 1988 and the success of SCOM, so for most people time started counting from then. The Paradise City single and video was released in early 1989, and there was also Lies and the Patience single and video that was released later. So for most of 1989 they were still living off of the success of AFD and Lies. The anticipation for the next album started growing in 1990 and it did feel long from then until the Illusions were finally released (especially because the tentative release dates were pushed back a few times). But it definitely wasn't a 4 years wait for most and it's not comparable with what happened in the pre- and post- CD eras. Reading through the interviews, articles, rumours etc. from the pre-CD era, it was really frustrating then and I think it was worse than now. People have been talking about Fernando's irresponsibility for "promising" new music in six months etc. as something that has only occurred during TB's time, but it was something that had happened a few times in 2000 and 2001 with "promises" and announcements (and through more official channels) from the then management. And it wasn't only the album that wouldn't be released then - tours and shows would also get cancelled. And then from 2003 to 2005, absolutely nothing.

    And still it's not a tiny crowd. Especially for a band with a singer that "sounds like a strangled cat". Fake Guns didn't pull much more either. If it doesn't happen now, with a forced down time, it will happen never. So yes, let's stay positive.

    Its time to stay positive guys... Slash says they’re working on stuff. We know for a fact they rehearsed Hardschool, Pretty Tied Up, Think About You; plus they played You’re Crazy at their last show. I believe things are moving forward in orden for us to get new things (new songs, at some point an album and old new songs being played live) I think its time we assume this will be happening sooner than later. I belive in Axls confidence with Slash by his side...and I believe in Slash making Axls material more GnRish. Its happening guys

    He did the same in 96, and look what happened. I just hope history doesnt repeat.

    I think you all misunderstood what Fernando said. And you are just choosing to hear what you want to believe. He actually said that within six months there was going to be a three hour meeting to discuss the possibility of maybe talking about the potential for a future album to be quite seriously considered to be maybe worked on and even perhaps be in contention for Axl to vaguely contemplate to release. So yeah, concrete plans in the world of GnR.

    Actually it was a compilation of all the Guns/Izzy related footage we know for years, including lots of audience shots and some official music video snippets and short (GNR) audio cuts. To be honest, I saw this comming since the day the documentary was announced here. This is why I watched it immediately. Actually, the takedown took longer than I expected. Such a shame! The documentary looked like the guy had a lot of work and put some passion into it.

    This news should excite me, but it's discouraging because it appears to indicate there never was an album with a planned release "within six months" (which would have been spring). Then Fernando came back and said due to covid, plans changed. So are we supposed to believe they're working on even more new music? I'll bet there never was an album done. Sad.

    Maybe if they are not gonna release anything this year, they decided to work a bit more in new songs. At the end of the day, we just don't know. If the band is not releasing anything, is not because they are still working with demos. Like the interview before Slash's one, with Tedd Rundgren (who wrote Dust in the Wind, which was an excellent cover back in the Illusions tour), a demo is almost as good as the finished product these days.

    I think people are too skeptical because of the band's history, but IMO this is the most obvious answer: he's just recording guitars - as overdubs, or even stuff from the scratch - for GNR. But also recording demos for GNR, because there's absolutely no reason why he can't do both. Because the band has much more time now - that wasn't expected -, nothing stops them to actually write and add more stuff. Maybe changing plans and including a new song or two that were not previously planned.

    Truth be told, only watched both Selects for the first time last night, in one sitting with ear phones in and after a fat bong hit.. I was actually quite pleased with both videos and in reflection I am happy that we finally have something official from the band during this era. You Could Be Mine actually still managed to raise a few hairs on the neck during that guitar intro from Slash, but it also helps that I was there that day so seeing that footage makes it more special. I really hope they keep it up as this is how they should be doing it, warts n' all!

    Another beautiful day here. I think we have had great weather for 4 or 5 weeks now. Reached 30 degrees again. Spent the day deep in the forest with my family. I recently found a small lake deep in the woods that is accessible by bikes and a forest trail. Really secluded and immensely beautiful. A place were you would expect beavers to plash into the water and moose to graze in the water. We took our bikes and went off quite early in the day before it got too hot. Stopped to fish with a net in a dried out river, my oldest daughter caught a small trout. Bathed in the lake. Swathed biting flies. Saw beautiful insects. Ate a great lunch of pasta salad and mangoes. Came back many hours later and drank home-made milkshake before we ate burgers. The daughters have golden hair and shining skin. My wife is better than she's been in many years. Just a very good day.
