  1. He probably wants to maximize sales of hard copy books, if he releases it online the hype of his book being released will die down due to people talking about the juiciest bits months prior to the hard cover coming out as well as the general new-ness would be lessened I can see pro's and con's both ways, ultimately I can't blame him if he and his publisher went over the numbers and think that his book would financially do a lot better if he can schedule all of his promotion and appearances alongside the physical release of the book
  2. The Appetite remaster is the first remaster to be advertised from GNR for sure, and the first to really be canonized by GNR Mobile Fidelity, an audiophile label had previously years ago remastered Appetite, Lies, and the Illusions on their own label - these as far as I know are the only other times there were actual bonafide new masters and not just reissues and repackaging
  3. Top live performances!

    I remember seeing a Youtube video a while back that was essentially that, compiled all the unedited performances from assorted bootlegs - I think the only one that was not able to be located was a recording of Rocket Queen that Live Era was based off of I would say I could locate it but judging by the fact it was on youtube it is probably long gone by now lol
  4. Yeah man, I am still waiting with baited breath for Oh My God (with Silkworms snare sample +3db) to show up
  5. The "New Album" Thread

    Were you around these parts when Chinese Democracy came out? I distinctly remember it being a fairly positive and exciting time around here and everyone was stoked GNR finally came out with something. There will always be *some* negative comments since everyone will have different opinions on things I don't think the same people who are bitching about new music will be all 100% the same people complaining about the content - I can tell you that I am bitching about no new music because I simply want new music to enjoy from my favorite band and would welcome the opportunity to finally be positive and happy with where GNR is
  6. The "New Album" Thread

    I am sure those statements would be made by a couple folks, however I think that the amount of constructive and positive posting about our favorite band finally releasing something would far outweigh any of those types of comments - and should not deter GNR from actually being productive of course
  7. The "New Album" Thread

    I personally think it is their best album since Binaural! I suppose not every album will be liked by every fan. I hear some amazingly different sonic stuff they are trying out on this album and it is fantastic to me Lemme know what you think! The artwork looks amazing blown up on the vinyl sleeves like that, tempted to get the vinyl from the Ten Club shop
  8. The "New Album" Thread

    I think Pearl Jam deserves a ton of kudos. Not only is their new album really good, but they were one of the first major acts to postpone their tour and they caught a ton of shit for it the day of the announcement from a ton of COVID skeptics. But I think they deserve props for taking the initiative to see the writing on the wall and act accordingly right then and there
  9. That quote is both not surprising in the least that Ted Nugent would say something like that, and also another quote in a long line of Nugent quotes as to why I don't take that guy seriously at all What a nutjob
  10. Although I think a remaster won't change those specific things neccesarily - a remaster is just taking the mixdown master tape and applying new processes such as EQ and compression (and hopefully never too much of it lol hello there Loudness Wars). Kind of like how with the Appetite remaster there were slight changes due to added compression but with certain frequencies emphasized such as slightly boosted bottom end, the changes are all more on the subtle, and broad stroke side of things. It can make some differences, however I think that a lot of the things you mentioned such as Izzy's guitar or the actual sound of the drums on Locomotive, a remix would be the solution for that. Taking the multitracks of the drums and applying different procceses on them, bumping up Izzy's guitar, changing up the stereo image a bit, etc. I personally always liked the sound of the Illusions however I can see how others wouldn't for sure. I really enjoy the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab remasters of the Illusions that have a slightly more dynamic range and a smooth crankable sound.
  11. The "New Album" Thread

    There has been 3 pages of discussion in this topic the past 3 days, if GNR are not gonna release new music might as well have a pointed topic we can reflect upon it lol
  12. Dizzy Reed continues to release more music than Axl

    2020 and you still use "millennial snowflakes" as a genuine attempt to insult lmao come on Nobody is saying they are owed anything - but if you think it isn't silly that a band that hints at new material as much as GNR has only netted 1 album of original material since when most of those "millennial snowflakes" were born, well needless to say I think that pretty much says it all
  13. Top 10 GNR Guitar Solos

    Ha I saw this reply on the "posts" part of the main page not seeing the post you replied too and immediately guessed you were talking about the fact that Nightrain has a fade out lol. I always turn the volume up as loud as it can go while it fades out so I can hear as much of it as I possibly can
  14. The "New Album" Thread

    I think the "they don't owe us anything" still applies with what you said though. Not that I am happy they aren't releasing anything, however the only thing we as fans/customers are truly owed is the physical or digital copy of the album we trade money for during a transaction, or a show from a ticket purchase transaction, etc. GNR unfortunately is allowed to be as unproductive as they want to be, even if we don't like it - I know I don't but what can you do
  15. The "New Album" Thread

    That's true, apparently this is a band that is only capable of releasing material after every 15 years minimum lol I have long accepted that unfortunate fact
  16. The "New Album" Thread

    At this point I consider GNR to be an entity celebrating the greatness that they accomplished back in the day, until they do something to prove otherwise
  17. Is this Gary Busey? If so, glad to see you are hanging in there man - huge fan!
  18. Norah Jones doesn't need cred, she is great in her own right! I am loving her rendition of Patience, thought it was a really classy rendition I could easily imagine Slash laying down some really clean-style blues lines over some of her recent material
  19. It *could* happen, but it definitely won't
  20. If GNR isn't doing anything I'd gladly take an album of Slash jams over nada, at least with those SMKC albums the occasional gem like Anastasia pops out
  21. That is the thing ultimately, Axl's Jackie Chan as the reference to the "Checkmate" clip and question could even be just an inside joke as to why they call it that. Right now none of us know enough in order to definitively say Hard School dates back to Duff-era mid 90s GNR sessions
  22. Yeah the first half was not bad - the second part of it was more pitchy though which hopefully the kinks get worked out
  23. Robin used a Les Paul however never did Slash cosplay
  24. On one hand I think Live Era was a wasted opportunity because it mostly came from the Tokyo show with different vocal tracks and on top of that the "prime" live era for GNR was largely ignored (1986-1988 with a couple exceptions) However I actually kind of like Axl's overdubbed vocals lol especially for Pretty Tied Up and Move to the City. His late 90's voice was strangely on point and it makes me wish we got to hear that Axl live - he had rasp however his vocals were cleaner than the 90's and still had power. So I like Live Era just to hear a vocal era of Axl that we don't have too much of regarding his take on older material
  25. The "New Album" Thread

    I never understood the appeal of the whole "insiders" giving info thing lol like to me if something is actually coming, I don't need someone else breaking the news early to tell me its coming, just let it come. And if something isn't coming, I don't need to hear about stuff that will never see the light of day anyway The only info I find worthwhile is in the form of audio (good on you Village Session folks)
