  1. I know people want "new music" but it's best right now, as well, to appreciate still being able to see bands "live." Just think, 10 years from now, most of the actual "good" rock bands will no longer exist, because most members will have died by that point. Think about it...the majority of members in bands like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, The Who, ZZ Topp, Rolling Stones, etc...will no longer be on this Earth. Sad to say, but at that point, you'll be seeing "Nostalgia" tours from piss poor bands like Fall Out Boy for example...and that's about as good as it will get in the rock world...God have mercy on us.
  2. Just a few days ago, Gilby Clarke dropped a new single, "Rock n' Roll is Getting Louder." What is everyone's thoughts. This is very "Stones Esque" and I'm liking the groove/sound of this release. True rock music:
  3. LOL, ironically....this old WWF tag team (Demolition) consisted of "Axl" and "Smash."
  4. I know I'm probably the minority here....but I still feel there is no need for a new album. Like I heard a guy say....the best films you watch are those that leave you wanting more, not those that are good but have 30 minutes too much footage. Sometimes it's best to leave extras on the cutting room floor, and just because you have extra music, doesn't necessarily mean you need to release it either....as shown by some of leaks that came out this past year. To me, a I feel a new album would be akin to "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" at this point. Yeah, everyone was psyched at the time to get a new movie with familiar faces, but reflecting up on it, there's really nothing too memorable about it now, and we got what turned out to be the worst entry in the series. If we get anything "new"......If anything....since the band claims to have so much footage of the UYI Tour...piece the best of that footage together into a documentary with current commentary from those involved. I'd much rather watch something like this, that can also shed more light on the changes the band went through, and the "state" everyone was in at the time. That's probably never going to happen, but, could be a great piece of rock history if put together.
  5. I'm glad Pluto TV has a few of these MTV channels that actually play Videos. It's sort of like the old days, well at least there is music videos shown anyway.
  6. The Best Albums of the Decade

    Since we are less than 2 weeks away from a new decade, let's look back on the some of the best music released this past decade. I'll shorten this to just 3 categories: Country, Rock/Metal, Rap/Hip-Hop I know we can view all sorts of genres/sub-genres and make picks, but what do you think is the best album of the decade in each of these 3 categories? Here are my personal picks Country: My Pick: Sturgill Simpson: Sound and Fury (2019)......Might seem like a strange pick, but this is definitely the most unique/genre changing "Country" album released this past decade...or is it even a "Country" album?? The guy won a grammy in 2017 for best country album for "A Sailor's Guide to the Earth" which in itself is great....but this album is a whole new beast not heard before.....blending a variety of genres and elements, sounding as if you blended Prince, Pink Floyd, Merl Haggard, 80s Metal, Hard Rock, Disco, etc...all together. Can't speak good enough about the outcome you hear. Runner Up: Chris Stapleton: The Traveler (2015) Rock/Metal: My Pick: Foo Fighters: Wasting Light (2011).....Arguably noted by some as the best album in the band's discography. It was even recorded/cut "Old School" production style. The album also won I-tunes album of the year, the year in which it was released. Another example of Dave Grohl's magic touch. Runner Up: Stone Sour: House of Gold and Bones: Part 1 (2013) Rap/Hip-Hop My Pick: Ghostface Killah: 36 Seasons (2014)......It's credited to Ghostface Killah, but is really a collaborative effort. A great concept album featuring a story about "Tony Starks" after he is released from prison after 9 years and hopes to lead a quiet life...that by far doesn't happen. Features other hip/hop and R&B artists such as Pharoahe Monch, Kool Rap G, The Revelations, and AZ even portraying the "villain" of the album. The album blends hard banging rap beats with soulful R&B tracks as well. Ghostface himself provides some "hard" lyrics as well, reminiscent of the Wu-Tang days....If you haven't heard this album, it's definitely worth your listen. Runner Up: Kanye West: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010) What are your personal picks?

  10. The Best Albums of the Decade

    I don't think we really had that many solid "albums" over the last decade. Nothing really comes to mind directly to say, "That's an all-time classic." You're almost better off listing the best selling, or big artists in each genre over the past decade.
  11. Nobody has commented on the fact that one of the photos posted contains 2 Super Heroes rarely seen together: AQUAMAN and "SUPPERMAN"
  12. https://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-ban-fan-rick-dunsford-song-leaks/ It is so....Looks like poor Rick isn't going to any shows in the future.
  13. Question on this.....so.....if you take a song, you are preferring people to do the vocals in Axl's style? If someone can't do his vocals, but....can add vocals and lyrics to one of the instrumentals, are you on board for that submitted?
  14. Last full album you listened to?

    There are very few albums that change the course of a genre...but one may have just been made this year!! Sturgill Simpson already won a Grammy Award for Best Country Album in 2017. Now he just released "Sound and Fury" a few months ago....and WOW! This isn't typical country music..... for today especially......this sounds like Pink Floyd, Merle Haggard, Prince, 80s metal, daft punk all wrapped into one. Very unique and worth a listen....
  15. Was the soul-soothing, sultry voice of Billy Corgan on the list?
  16. If what Rick is quoted as saying in the article is true: "I know the seller that I bought them from was continuing to sell to other individuals, and there was a massive leak. So pretty much, I've been blamed for this," he said. That probably means either 1. The person who bought this locker still has the original copies, and sold Rick and his friends "copies" for $15,000....or 2. The person who bought the locker sold Rick and his friends the original copies for $15,000, but made copies himself before selling.... I would guess that "The Chairman" isn't Rick, one of his friends, or the person who bought the locker....but someone else that the person who bought the lock sold copies too.... In all....I think the person who bought the locker sold "The Chairman" copies of the discs, which is why you hear the "skip" in one of the instrumentals....it's been "burned" over to a disc that way, the "skip" picked up on the copy, due to scratches on the original. Used to happen to me a lot back in the early 00's, when we copied a disc from a friend that has scratches, a skip might pick up on a song from time to time.
  17. If "Rock the Rock" from Looney Tunes is any indication, I don't think he is. LOL.... Seriously, the whole industrial-rock-metal genre has passed on much like "grunge" music did. Still artists out there making music in this genre, but it's far from the mainstream spotlight at this point.
  18. My favorite GnR cover that I have seen in a while:
  19. So this is the impression I get...so far....all the leaks have amounted to is.......scrapped instrumental material that should have been on a Buckethead solo album......About 5 songs with vocals that Axl didn't like for Chinese Democracy....nothing so far that fits the musical style of Slash or Duff....guess this means NITL will resume until 2024, and the band might take a break to work on new album material together then.
  20. 10/04/19 - Austin, TX - Austin City Limits

    Black Hole Sun needs to be taken off the set list completely. Axl's vocal style just doesn't fit singing this song at all. It was nice to add to the set list the 1st year or so after Chris Cornell's death, but it's time to let it go now. Even Chris himself realized he was out of his element singing Rage Against the Machine covers with Audioslave, and slowly the band decreased those from the set list. Some styles just don't fit. Chris was a great rock singer, but as you can see below, watching him trying to cover Rage is cringe worthy.....
  21. Is it me or is Chris Jericho trying to be Axl Rose

    All that is true....it's hard to imagine that Fozzy actually hit #1 on the rock charts though with "Judas" a couple of years ago. Jericho can still put on a good match though.
  22. Is it me or is Chris Jericho trying to be Axl Rose

    LOL I thought the same thing when I saw Jericho in New Japan about a year ago. They both have the same mid section now anyway.
  23. I'll add this...I was in Jr. High when "The Spaghetti Incident" came out. A few of my fellow classmates were also still heavy into the band at that time, we were just 13-14 or so. I actually had a classmate that wore a "Spaghetti Incident" shirt to school at times, and we had a science teacher that would tell him he looked like a "large intestine" with it on. I got introduced to the band hearing AFD first through "older" kids at our High School, then looked up he UYI albums on my own, especially after seeing the Don't Cry and November Rain videos. At that time period, we still listened to the "grunge" bands as well as hip hop at that time, so a mixture of what was on MTV. This is another factor no one considers as to why GnR might have lost appeal with the "school aged" kids though...... I myself at that time, didn't understand that "The Spaghetti Incident" was a total "covers" album. I had seen the video for Since I Don't Have You, and knew it was a cover song....and at that time, I thought Hair of the Dog was the only other cover song on the album when I heard it....So, I was confused by songs like Attitude, Human Being, Down on the Farm, etc....I thought this was "new" material at the time, and wondered what in the world happened on some of these songs? I didn't own the album, but remember borrowing it off a friend since we traded a lot, when you're a teenager and don't have much money. I probably listened to the album as a whole once, and wrote it off, because I just liked a couple songs in 1994. I was thinking, that I wish they would release another album to make up for what happened on this album...I didn't understand it was a whole covers album until a couple years later I guess, and by that time the band was quiet....then you find out Slash is no longer with them....At that point, I just moved on from them, thinking the band was done as a whole, and wouldn't be the same without Slash anyway. I still listened to the past albums every now and then in High School, but mostly stuck to what new music I would see come out on MTV...The only time after that I really got back into being "excited" for the band again was when I started reading on the internet/seeing the buzz about Axl regrouping the band around 200-2001. In a way....I think "The Spaghetti Incident" album hurt the band more that what you would think, as appealing to youth, especially since there was no timely follow up that ever came.
  24. I read an article at one point, that focused on the build up to the "Use Your Illusion" releases. It basically stated that the anticipation was so high, the next GnR album was expected to challenge Michael Jackson's Thriller in terms of US sales...But, this was prior to finding out that this would be a Double Album release, and the article focused on the album being a single studio album, which was what everyone thought they were getting at that period in time. All in all, last time I checked the albums combined had sold around 14-15 Million US copies. That's still not bad at all!
