  1. The record producer part is accurate - Brain talked about this in the below interview (starts at approx 30secs). The activist part, however, is very much up for debate!
  2. Out of curiosity - would Axl and Izzy have to sign this off?
  3. Not quite the new album we were hoping for... Strangely includes SOYL too. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/guns-n-roses-greatest-hits-to-be-released-on-vinyl-in-september/

    Nice! I like these! Unfortunately no international shipping
  5. FRANS N ROSES Videos

    Entire Pro-shot Download or the ones used for NITL selects (and footage on Sky Arts)?
  6. Sp What Happens Now?

    In all honesty really don't care what Axl looks like as long as he can get around the stage and sing. Will we hear new stuff... I'm eternally optimistic but I just don't think we will unless there's something concretely lined up for a new album.
  7. NITL live videos on youtube

    I guess this is the most disappointing bit for me. Axl/DC was without a doubt the single greatest vocal performance I have ever witnessed in my life. Axl was in a moon-boot and only a few weeks after Vegas so not a huge change physically, but he KNEW he had to bring his A-game or get slaughtered and his performance was truly mind-blowing.
  8. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Maybe - but Download was a pure open air, so I don't recall hearing same when I was there too. Much more pronounced within a wrap-around stadium.
  9. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Yeah for sure, can't see everyone and it's natural that people will be going in and out but my main point was that I could hear the echo of people singing along with that song for the first time in my life (seen 15 GNR shows), highlighting mainly how big the venue is and how many people there were!
  10. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    London 2017 first night I was in the golden circle - the first time in my life I've ever heard an echo from how just many people were singing SCOM in unison. SCOM is the song people run back from the bogs/beer queues to listen to.
  11. Absolutely, the Shackler's one I imagine to be quite different to the Shankler solo and as you said the one that is inaudible sounds a lot different to quite a simple solo on Shankler's. Going back to CITR, I checked the liner notes again and it actually lists a Robin solo which I'm quite surprised about - I imagine this is the quiet, under-the-vocals solo approx 3:40-3:55 @Voodoochild what do you think? Would absolutely love to hear all of the different solos by the different guitarists through the ages, would make a really intriguing listen! 7. CATCHER IN THE RYE(Rose, Tobias)Drums: Brain Bass: Tommy Stinson Guitars: Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Robin Finck, Paul Tobias Keyboards: Chris Pitman, Dizzy Reed Piano: Axl Rose Guitar Solos: Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Robin Finck, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal Background Vocals: Axl Rose Vocals: Axl Rose
  12. Oh Axl... I know I've been pretty outspoken about how I think Ron's CITR solo is horribly misplaced in this tune, but my god how he can go from a Brian May one to that is beyond me. In addition, would love to understand what alternative solos are essentially in the vault, e.g. Was there ever a Bucket or Robin Catcher solo? (in the years between Brian May and BBF) Was there ever a Richard Fortus SOD solo recorded? (he did outro solo live one Bucket had left). Interesting stuff!
  13. Yep sounds spot on to me. Thanks @Gordon Comstock for providing that snippet with cleaner vocals to help it; Axl certainly wasn't overstating it when he called them "Rough mixes"!
  14. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Yeah fair play! Never really thought about it and this is the beauty of the forums! Now you’ve said it, I hear it more. Will take a few more listens to convince but think you could be right!
  15. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Oh wow fair play. I think it’s May for 2 reasons: - Sonically I think it sounds like him. - May said that he was invited to the sessions because Robin had left and Axl had wanted his parts erased. Would love to hear the truth! Wonder if anyone will email Brian May in the same way in 2006 when he confirmed his work on CITR.
