  1. What would be the best NITL compilation?

    The best thing to do would be to release a double live album but then put out a deluxe edition with a 3rd cd that includes the rest/most of the songs played on the tour not included on the 2 CD set. Honestly if they do release a live album I hope they check fan forum threads like these to insure the best versions get released. Sure they could sift through hours of tapes but the GNR fans have long since listened to every bootleg from the tour & analyzed everything.
  2. The reason Axl can still barely be heard is because of mic bleed from the PA, even if samples were added the guitars & such are definitely mixed different than the soundboard bootleg & the b-sides tracks. I'm pretty damn sure they still have the miltitracks they just didn't want to put it on the box set for whatever reason.
  3. They had the miltitracks when the did live era, out ta get me even had axls intro cut out. I don't know how they would have lost it in 20 years.
  4. I might be reading into it too much but the "Frank was great" quote makes me feel a lot better because you heard all these rumors of Slash & Duff not liking him and the quote from the Rolling Stone Slash interview about Frank wasn't really reassuring.
  5. I find all this Fortus hate kinda funny, since during the nugnr years he was one of the more liked members. I've said since the beginning of the reunion while I'm bummed Izzy isn't involved I was excited to hear what Slash & Richard could do together and at least in my ears they haven't dissapointed. If we ever get a new record I'd love to hear what they can come up with.
  6. I honestly would prefer it if they cut the GNR songs altogether or at least play a deep cut that Guns doesn't play (bring back Todd's You're Crazy) Rocket Queen is a classic but it just seems underwhelming since the reunion, idk if I wanted to hear RQ I would ses GNR I'd much rather hear some SMCC/VR/Snakepit. When I saw Rob Halford solo (while he was in Priest) the only priest songs he played were b-sides & deep cuts, which some of the crowd wasn't so stoked for but I was.
  7. 4tus Nightrain Solo Tabs

    Maybe I'm wrong but isn't this pretty much the Solo he's been playing the whole time he's been in the band? (I know he's changed bits & pieces overall but practically the same structure) To me I feel like it would be a lot more lame to stop what he's doing and copy Izzy's note for note. People hate on Frank & Richard a lot but I'd always rather have a musician add some of his own flavor to something than to copy the previous musician's part. I personally love Richards version, him doing those bends over the chords that break up the 2 solos adds a cool new dimension to the track. It's also pretty much exactly what Slash does on songs like CD, which again I have no problem with.
  8. Man I've been looking for that version for years thanks for posting! It seems that this, the Alt. Mix of brownstone and the video edit of SCOM could have easily been put on the b-sides disk (there's no alternates of these 3 songs), makes me wish they took more time with this boxset
  9. Ii think the interviewer might be jumping to conclusions, the song was probably originally done by Chester with different lyrics & then given to Lemmy later who changed them, kind of like nothing to say/chains & shackles
  10. Good work Russ, I sincerely hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears. If any part of the GN'R organization is reading this, peoples families are being threatened and although you guys do not carry all the blame, the lack of engagement with your fan base for the better part of 20 years has helped create this culture. We're not asking for new music or content this time we're simply asking you to help deal with a situation that is causing the most hardcore fans, the people that have kept this band/brand alive, grief on many levels some deeply personal. I love Brando's podcast and his content but for me the most interesting part of his program has been watching a fan without much experience in the deeper, darker part of our fan base getting immersed in it and seeing the highlights & incredible lows. It has further reinforced my belief that GN'R fans are the most passionate music fans in the world, and sometimes (more often than not these days) that's not a good thing. Okay rant over, waking up this morning and hearing this from Brando was especially frustrating. Often times me & my girlfriend will spend hours showing each other music on YouTube and after spending an extensive period of time last night trying to show her anything GN'R related that wasn't a basic studio album cut, even she thought this was ridiculous, and shes not a guns fan by any means.
  11. Also, there's a bunch of sound board slash shows available from disclive: https://www.disclivenetwork.com/detail.cfm?artistid=43
  12. Rank The Songs on LIES

    But Shadow was officially released, on the It's So Easy Single, the Live From The Jungle EP, and the Live & Let Die Single. Hell even the Hollywood Rose version was released.
  13. Final thoughts on NITL tour

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks hearing the CD songs with Slash & Duff was a pro, I felt like they gave those songs new life & they really felt like GNR songs finally (not to say CD is bad) The only real con of this tour for me is that there doesn't seem to be anything new on the horizon. I was really hoping Slash & Duff returning would speed up the process of a new album but seeing that Slash is going back to record with the Conspirators first seems very telling to me.
  14. This situation makes me so frustrated, I just had to explain it to my GF who's not a GNR fan at all and it was an ordeal haha. There's no one thing about this situation that's worse than the others but what guts me the most is how it's destroyed the downloads section of this forum, I've been using this site since I was 16 and the downloads section was like the holy Grail for me when I discovered it. Now we gotta ask for old live bootlegs like they're a leak of Atlas Shrugged.
  15. I've gotta give Axl credit he's been getting better and better on Slither but personally the Scott version of ISE will always be important to me. I remember ripping the audio of the download performance from YouTube to put on my ipod when I was a kid and being blown away by it when I saw VR.
