  1. NITL Tour DVD/Blu Ray ?

    If it's just a few festival shows, I imagine it'll just be 'Tour 2019' and they might keep doing individual shirt/litho designs in the different cities. Instead of 'NITL 2019' it will just say 'Louder Than Life Festival 2019', etc.
  2. Another wave of copyright strikes?

    I logged onto my youtube account for the first time in a while, and noticed my videos from Vegas 2016 had been removed.
  3. Anderson .Paak - Ventura

    It's an early contender for Album Of The Year. Dr. Dre mixed it, and it was recorded around the same time as his last album Oxnard (released 5 months ago) but Anderson had more control over the production on Ventura, and... it's a lot better than his last album. His voice and drumming sound great. He got Andre 3000 and Nate Dogg on the record (thanks Dre!) and all the other features fit seamlessly. It's a 'return' to his best sound (Malibu) but it's an improvement, this album is smooth as fuck, catchy, it's a great 'summertime' record. I know most people on a rock forum might not be into this, but for those that are:
  4. Duff's new single release: 'Don't Look Behind You'

    That was way better than the first 2 singles.
  5. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Even if Izzy came back and they gave more vocal duties to him, Duff and Melissa, it wouldn't necessarily make Axl sound better throughout the show. He'd still Mickey the shit out of Estranged, YCBM, Nov Rain, SCOM etc. However, I do wish they'd let Duff do lead vocals on Dust N Bones and So Fine, and let Melissa do co-lead vocals on Locomotive. But if they didn't adjust the setlist in 2018 then I doubt they'll ever re-work the set to fit Axl's vocals. He's too stubborn to admit he doesn't sound good.
  6. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    The hard truth is that this line-up sold out stadiums as a 'reunited' aka 'legit' version of GNR. This is GNR as far as the general public is concerned. If there's a new album, Fortus and Frank will be playing on it, and it will still be huge.
  7. Brian Johnson will tour with AC/D.C. again

    True... it would've been cool to hear him sing Who Made Who or Moneytalks.

    Yes. Yes you are. And I'm afraid the only cure is to literally wear spaghetti noodles and sauce until the image on that shirt repulses you. #Pray4Azifwekare
  9. NITL Tour DVD/Blu Ray ?

    A compilation from the US 2016 stadium run would actually be pretty good... there's only a few songs he wasn't good on (YCBM, Nov Rain, Paradise City) but 90% would be enjoyable to listen to. I think it was part of the contract for the residency... and it still took them 2 years to release it

    They're finally going to re-issue the one thing that every GNR fan has always wanted.
  11. Concerts in 2019

    Saw Yelawolf for the 3rd time last night, it was fuckin' awesome. The crowd was really into it, which made it lots of fun, it was better than the crowds at most shows around here. Wish he'd played more songs from his new album but it was still the best show I've seen from him.
  12. Anderson .Paak - Ventura

    Oxnard was cool for what it was, but this is what I was hoping for when he first started working with Dre. 'Reachin 2 Much' and 'Jet Black' have kind of a Venice vibe to them, but they're a level above that record, they're like the culmination of everything he's done since then. There's echoes of Malibu throughout the album too but again, he's on another level right now. Can't wait to see what these songs are like in a live setting, that's where .Paak really shines.
  13. The Struts

    Roll Up and the version of Body Talks with Kesha are pretty good... their first album had some good songs and I was anticipating their second album, but it was a letdown.
  14. The Weed Thread

  15. Slash's playing on Contraband is great, but the tuning and production make it sound more dated than his other albums. On the other hand, the production of Apocalyptic Love is great, but the songs themselves aren't that interesting (for the most part).
  16. New pro-shot ? 13/04/1993 - Detroit

    Hope more UYI pro-shots leak... even if it takes a while. The Saskatoon show initially leaked one song at a time (I think it went LALD, My Michelle, The Garden, Nice Boys, and maybe one other song before the full show leaked).
  17. What Are You Listening To 2019

  18. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I agree that it's weird to treat the CD2 material as some sort of 'unheard masterpiece' but I get why people really want to hear it. I like CD, I really want to hear the CD2 songs, because even though there's some duds on CD the potential for great material is there - Axl is my favourite singer, Brain and Buckethead are some of my favourite musicians, there's some great stuff on CD and it seems that some 'A list' songs were intentionally left off. The best possible scenario for a new release would be an album (re)recorded by the NITL line-up, with a bonus disc of 'early versions' of whatever CD-era songs this band ends up releasing.
  19. I wanted to post WTTJ from the Vegas 2001 show but, surprisingly, it can't be found on youtube... I'm not trying to say he sounds identical, but that his vocal style wasn't necessarily as different as some people claim. It was different, but not drastically different, at least for some shows. Plenty of shows from that era do sound pretty bad vocally, but on a good night, he could channel the 'classic voice' fairly well. I still think Columbus 2002 is the best show from that era vocally, I mean people on this board would be ecstatic if he sang November Rain or LALD as well as he did at that show nowadays, for example. But I can see why people would disagree. His 'Hollywood Rose - Live Like A Suicide' voice is what's most comparable to the '01-02 voice IMO, it was a relatively clean but powerful high voice, with grit when necessary. The key word there being 'relatively'. His voice was cleaner in the 2000's but the approach/style was similar. His voice nowadays is just shot, unless he's screaming or singing in his natural range (Patience, Wichita Lineman, Double Talkin' Jive, etc). ok I'm done with the voice bullshit in this thread now, for real this time.
  20. Here's an example of what I'm talking about, I think these are somewhat comparable vocally: Obviously he sounds older in the 2002 clip but it's not like his 2002 voice was completely alien. When he went full-mickey it was awful, but he sounded pretty good at times too. WTTJ from the Vegas 2001 show sounds like an older version of 'classic Axl', if you get what I mean. He could still sing with a sharp, powerful high voice that wasn't too raspy or too clean, like in that '86 video. It's unfortunate that he used the mickey voice so often, but he proved he could still pull off the classic voice when he went for it. edit: this is my last post about his voice in this thread, I swear. At least until the show actually happens
  21. Last full album you listened to?

    Great album.
  22. I'm specifically talking about his 1986-early '87 voice, which is different but comparable to the voice he used at the HOB 2001 show. If you listen to the '86 bootlegs his voice is sharp but not overly raspy - nothing like what it became by 1988. It was clean but still powerful. At Rio 2001 and plenty of 2002 shows, that wasn't necessarily the case, but there were times on that tour where he did channel his 'classic voice', Vegas '01 and Columbus '02 being some good examples. Again, he obviously sounded older in the 2000's, but when he had power behind the clean voice it wasn't that far removed from his early vocal styles.
  23. He did use a clean voice in the 80's though... the HOB 2001 show is similar vocally (though older sounding, obviously) to his '86-87 styles. It was clean, but still piercing and powerful. He sounded similar at times in 2006 as well, that was probably the best year for his clean voice since the 80's/early 90's.
  24. New Song

    Good song. Can I download it somewhere?
