  1. Could you point me in the direction of articles/interviews etc where Axl or Axl/DC talk about him in rehearsals and mentioning the vocal coach? Was quite an interesting time for him and his voice. Agree with your comment too.
  2. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Dropped into my local. Picked up the following.... North Mississippi Allstars - Up and Rolling Marcus King - El Dorado (spinning now, and its fantastic, great quality album & pressing) Otis Redding - Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul Khruangbin and Leon Bridges - Texas Sun
  3. The whining thread

    Can't PM you for whatever reason. PM me your email address please.
  4. Haven't listened and I don't think I need to for the comment I'm going to make. What frustrates me further (aside from what lots of folk have mentioned in this thread) is from my understanding with vocal care, practice, training, and basic exercise you can rebuild you're voice for the most part. It's never going to be like what it was in ones youth, but can still be strong and powerful etc. I get the impression Axl doesn't do any of what I've listed as his voice is more often than not shockingly bad now (comparing him to himself). If you're going to charge large amounts for tickets and continue pushing the NITL tour, at least keep you instrument and skills healthy out of respect for both yourself, bandmates and fans. For all the perfectionist comments associated with Axl of the decades, he seems far from it in a live setting, and lazy.
  5. Marc Canter's videos

    I preordered Reckless Road, and from memory we were promised exclusive clips and footage from the era as part of the pre ordering (or something along those lines). Never got anything, other than the book and felt a bit annoyed about that at the time.
  6. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2019 Edition

    Watched Parasite last night. Highly recommend it, and also recommend going in completely blind knowing nothing about it too. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
  7. The "New Album" Thread

    I'd be interested, mostly because of how backwardly ran this band is and how its nearly impossible to get anything from them. I'd be generally excited if it was new music though - no rehashed material, just the current lineup making songs and not over thinking things - doubt that wuold be the case either (imo anything we get is going to be CD era completed songs with Duff n' Slash on, and then one or two new ones that Slash & Duff have conjured up to make everyone feel better.
  8. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    1. I've never once considered One in a Million as racist or derogatory, and am sick of how the debate/discussion/point is always bought up at any available opportunity by journos. I can understand why it's easy to claim it as both those things, I've just never seen it or interrupted it in that light in my mind. I generally won't speak up about my opinion on this matter as its easy to paint me with the same brush by association. 2. LIES version of You're Crazy is fantastic and my preference over AFD's track. 3. Slash is brilliant at what he does, yet is still overrated as a guitarist. 4. Tommy's voice (think it was him, but might have been Finck) during live performances of the song Chinese Democracy often sounded better than Axl's. 5. I'm often biased towards Axl's voice, but in reality - more often than not, - he is well below par whenever I've seen him live post 93. Just don't like to admit it 6. Spaghetti Incident is a great, heavy, & fun album. Since I Don't Have You makes me cringe and imo shouldn't have been on the record. 7. The band has too many ballads, which slow live shows down drastically cutting the bulk of them out would result in a more powerful show. Patience should never be in the encore. 8. The bands live shows seem very generic and cookie cutter, and have been since the later UYI tours. Great thread OP!
  9. Agree. Also can't see an album in the near future if they're all happy in continuing to regurgitate the same tour over and over. Appreciate its a good money spinner, but for artists - surely they want to be creating and playing, not just rinse and repeating the same stuff.
  10. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    My thoughts on Matt too. I'll read it at some point despite this though, and also due to this lol.
  11. What Are You Listening To 2019

    Didn't think a new thread was needed. Curious what Spotify spat out for everyone this year in regards to most listened to artist or record or song. I got Jimmy Reed and Benjamin Booker. It gives more details, but I can't recall what else off the top of my head. So what did you get? Always a fun way to find new music, or rehash stuff you've not listened to in a while.
  12. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    I was interested in this too, really interested. But a small bit of research i did on it suggested that the source can't be anything but the average one currently available. So have some doubts now, but could be wrong and in was a random post on the internet. Pearl Jam generally don't cut corners, so imagine the quality would be top notch?
  13. The Black Crowes "Reunion"

    Thanks for the book recommendation. Just ordered it. I've seen them a number of times and agree, some shows have been fantastic, other's very average. Those first two albums I still thoroughly enjoy, and also like their sound when Luther Dickinson was hired for a while. Cash grab no doubt, but I'd still probably enjoy myself hearing/watching them belt out Shake Your Money Maker from front to back live. Certainly isn't a reunion though lol.
  14. I was once involved in a pitch for "Where's Axl?" show/doco - obviously it didn't happen (this was ages ago now well before CD was released). Curious as to if this is the same thing, or some dude pinched my idea and rolled with it further. Will have a listen.
