    The what? Do you mean the residency shirt from 2012? The 'Appetite for Democracy' shirt that was given to the Joint/Hard Rock staff?
  2. Going Down

    The title had been floating around since 2011 actually, Ron described it as 'an earthy song' (or something similar to that) when he was asked about it.
  3. Best Sandwiches

    Well of course, I thought it was obvious that there was cheese
  4. Best Sandwiches

    I'm not too picky, sometimes I'll buy it and sometimes I'll mix it myself. Do quesadillas belong in this thread? I'm gonna make one for lunch today, with stir fry meat, 'craft beer' bacon, jalapenos, and caramelized onions.
  5. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    I still think it's an old recording that they tried to make sound more 'modern' with the remaster, but its entirely an 80's track. I'll send you the separated tracks from the 5.1 disc if you don't already have them, there are little parts where I can see why people think they might be re-recorded, but after hearing the different channels there's no doubt for me that it's an old track.
  6. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Even from 2009 until about 2012, he was doing his own thing but didn't stick out as much in a negative way. Sometimes it's like he's trying to 'keep up' with Slash, if that makes sense, in terms of flashiness and extra notes. Franks playing comes across as an awkward half-way point between being a 'metal/hard rock drummer' and a 'classic rock drummer', and the idea that 'less is more' seems lost on him.
  7. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    To be clear: I don't think Frank is a bad drummer necessarily, I just don't like his style when it comes to GNR tunes. His fills, grooves and his drum tone are the least appealing of all the drummers GNR have had. He adds many unnecessary fills and accents, and it's annoyingly noticeable to the point where it brings the songs down... and none of those things are helped by the faster tempos. That said, I respect the opinions like Russ' because it's a subjective thing. I also know that his favourite GNR guitar player is Robin and I disagree with that opinion too, but in the end who cares? edit: also, Frank is of Cuban heritage, no?
  8. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    1) Axl/DC was the most intense training and performing he's done for a tour in a long, long time, and just doing 2 legs of an AC/DC tour seems to have taken a real toll on Axl's voice. When Angus joined them in 2017, Axl was nowhere near as good as he was in 2016. 2) He used rasp on every performance of OTGM in 2016. It was consistently one of the best songs on that leg of the tour. Adler didn't necessarily make him sing it any better than normal, he just made the band sound better. 3) I agree he definitely coasts/goes into 'auto-pilot' when he's not motivated, but being motivated doesn't mean he can just bring back the 'classic voice'. I honestly think our only hope in that department is new music - performing the same 30 year old songs with a different drummer isn't going to light a fire under Axl the same way that performing his own new material would. I would love it if Adler was brought back into the band, but let's not pretend that would magically solve the other issues.
  9. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Steven has shown that he can play Civil War and You Could Be Mine, at least. I would love to hear him play Coma, Double Talkin' Jive, November Rain and especially Locomotive if they ever play that one again. Obviously he can play Don't Cry and KOHD, too. The only song he might not play as well as Sorum would be Estranged IMO, it'd be really interesting to hear his take on that song. Matt sucked the life out of some AFD songs. Steven injects new life into some UYI songs. Frank pretty much ruins everything.
  10. If it dropped to $299 I'd consider it, but I don't think I'd buy it unless it dropped to $199 US. The Super Deluxe Edition is still about $200 CDN on GNR's site... so not a bad deal for the Americans who picked it up for $40. But I don't care about the cd's or the book or whatever else is in there, the vinyl is the only thing that makes the L&L set worth buying.
  11. Ron did the high vocals during the verse but I think there was a backing track in the chorus of Shackler's?
  12. Yea he's only used backing tracks when there's a bunch of layered or backing vocals - Madagascar, Sorry, Scraped, Shackler's. Honestly I think it sounds fucking horrible when you have Axl's live voice singing one line and then an obvious studio recording of the next line...
  13. What Are You Listening To 2019

  14. Best Sandwiches

    Marble rye bread, dijon mustard, chipotle mayo, roast beef, bacon, cheese, lettuce, pickles, and jalapenos.
  15. Stranger Things season 3 was definitely better than season 2, but neither were as good as season 1.
