  1. Yankee Stadium summer 2019?

    Here's the full quote: Are you telling me that Van Halen will play Yankee Stadium next summer? You promised four New York copy editors free tickets today. Yeah, but I can’t … If I say something on tape here and everybody goes, “Oh, this leaked…” But, the band will be — I can’t say. Come on. Well, I don’t know how far this privacy actually goes. But the band is solvent. And I can say that I contacted colleagues about being part of the show — Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Jason Aldean, the Foo Fighters, Church, and Stapleton. And they all said that, if everything happens, they would certainly be involved. So this would be a festival? No, all I talked about was a phone call.
  2. Yea the 'bombs' or whatever they're called are annoying and kinda distracting. LALD benefits from pyro tho, and I like it on CD and Nov Rain. The fireworks during PC for the stadium shows in 2016 were cool. I kinda wish they'd use CD to open the encore, and bring back the long intro and 2010 pyro: (at 1:50)
  3. I think they could keep playing stadiums in 2 scenarios: either release a (relatively successful) album and bring a couple popular opening bands (like Metallica does), or co-headline with another major band.
  4. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Skid Row's albums sound really good... their S/T album is one of my favourite's sound-wise but Slave is awesome too.
  5. Vinyl LP and Turntable Discussion

    Slave To The Grind got here today... just finished listening to the first side, this record is fuckin awesome.
  6. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts Begin!

    I wouldn't even pay that much for L&L... all I want is the vinyl and I'd say $200-$225 is reasonable for a box of vinyl and a bunch of 'extra shit' (and let's be honest, most of the stuff in there is shit).
  7. The live video will be released as a digital file/app in Super-High-Interactive-Technology HD, and you will be mailed a #LimitedEdition GNR bluetooth projector* and 3D lithograph of Richard Fortus. Only $2000 while supplies last. *Delivery will take approx. 7 months
  8. What would be the best NITL compilation?

    That one was kinda random, I'm hoping people start posting better versions of Nightrain, SCOM, KOHD, etc... but Houston is a good 'standard' performance. The songs with Adler or Angus would be cool but I think the 'main set' should have no guests... if they actually release a live album I hope those are 'bonus tracks' tho.
  9. What do you guys think would make the best NITL CD/Blu-ray? What are the best performances? IMO it would look something like this, I'm sure others will add their preferred performances, so maybe there will be votes/polls eventually about which is 'the best', but I think this is a good starting point for a NITL 'best-of'. It's So Easy - Troubadour 2016 Mr. Brownstone - Vegas 2016 (2nd night) Chinese Democracy - Philadelphia 2016 Welcome To The Jungle - Detroit 2016 Double Talkin Jive - Kobe 2017 Better - Houston 2016 Estranged - Mexico, April 2016 Live And Let Die - Curitiba 2016 Rocket Queen - Houston 2016 You Could Be Mine - Houston 2016 Shadow of Your Love - Talinn 2018 This I Love - Seattle 2016 Civil War - Houston 2016 Coma - Houston 2016 Sweet Child O' Mine - Houston 2016 Wichita Lineman - Washington 2017 My Michelle - Arlington 2016 Out Ta Get Me - Houston 2016 November Rain - Mexico, April 2016 (2nd night) Knockin On Heavens Door - Nashville 2016 Nightrain - Houston 2016 Patience - LA 2016 Madagascar - Chorzow 2018 The Seeker - San Diego 2016 Paradise City - Foxboro 2016 Notes: Mr. Brownstone - A hybrid of Troubadour/Vegas would be the best, switching when Axl breaks his foot to the 'throne' show. Otherwise, Vegas 2016 (2nd night). DTJ - This song could be picked from dozens of shows but it's gotta have a 'Home Fuck'. LALD - I'm sure there's some performances with better screams, but I picked Curitiba because the first scream sounds good while he's running, so it'd be a good performance for a video release IMO. Slither - Excluded because I've yet to hear one with a good chorus. The other CD songs - 4 is enough, but if someone can find a better CITR or Madagascar then please post it. Attitude/New Rose - Who really wants this? Godfather, WYWH, Layla - 'No solos' seems pretty obvious, especially since there's extended solos in DTJ and RQ. KOHD - Honestly I just picked a random one that wasn't 12 minutes. Adler songs - Maybe add them as 'bonus tracks' but I really doubt they'd use guest appearances on a live album. That also means no Angus Young, Dave Grohl, Baz, Pink, or anyone else I'm forgetting. Extra covers - Wichita and The Seeker should be the extent of the 'extra covers', even Wichita is a bit much but Guns version is really nice, so fuck it, Wichita Lineman can be included. What do you guys think?
  10. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts Begin!

    It's 5 discs, with some photos and posters... anything over $50 is ridiculous IMO. Even $50 is high but 'justifiable'.
  11. The Gear Thread

    It sounds really nice too. The ride I've been using for the last several years is pretty good for a low-end model cymbal but this is a nice upgrade. I've had a Zildjian 18" Pitch Black crash for several years as well and it's starting to crack, I'm gonna replace that one after xmas, there's a couple Sabian and Paiste crash's that I'm keeping an eye out for.
  12. I'm no fan of hers but I like the song she did with The Struts, she's not out of her element on rock songs....
  13. Tons of people have seen them recently enough that a NITL live album would do well, as a commemorative thing. I think casual fans would give it a listen, but they'd have to include a blu-ray and/or bonus tracks on some kind of 'special edition' to get people to buy it. Otherwise most people will just stream it.
