  1. Axl Rose on Jimmy Kimmel [Request]

    I appreciate the help my friend, thanks! If I happen to come across one in better quality, I'll post it here!
  2. I've had 3 torrents I've managed to find up for days in the hope that seeders magically appear, obviously with a 6 year old torrent, I've not had much joy. If any of you have the Jimmy Kimmel episode with Axl as the guest downloaded (preferably in HD), I would be forever grateful if you could upload it for me! I'd have even ripped it from YouTube, but Kimmel's channel has deleted lots of video's. Also the other ones that are still up, are in horrendous quality and have Spanish subtitles. Any help would be greatly appreciated it!
  3. Doubt it my friend, it'll just be a way of playing the nostalgia card to promote Appetite and obviously the big three. Also, I think Going Down is a better song than Shadow. I guess it's all down to taste, unfortunately the majority of us haven't heard anything from the CD sessions so we can compare, other than a few snippets of songs that we were already familiar with and Tommy's Going Down.
  4. What Are You Listening To 2018

    I've got a wee story to go with this tune. I'm not long off the phone to my friend who is over in Dublin boozing with Tony McGuinness. I'd mentioned to him that Christie Dignam, the lead singer, had consumed more drugs than Lemmy Kilmister managed in a lifetime and asked for Tony to pass on my regards if they're still in touch. My pal went one better and got me a video response from the man himself. "More than you'll ever fucking know my friend! You have no idea what that man has put into his system, but he's still alive and well. Most of it was tonic water!" Brilliant.
  5. Best Version of KOHD.

    It took me a while to get into the new 10+ minute version, but now I think it's one of the highlights of the show. Here's three of my favorites.
  6. What Are You Listening To 2018

    Going Down - Guns N' Roses It's been a while since I last listened to it, I still think it's great.
  7. I always enjoyed his playing. It works out better I think having Dizzy playing This I Love and Estranged, the more Axl is commanding the stage, the better, in my opinion.
  8. With you on hearing Prostitute. They played it towards the end of the leg last time, I'm at the show in Sweden so here's hoping by then it'll be played if not at the start in Berlin! I could definitely do without The Seeker
  9. Class, minus Ashba!! He's got a lot more left in the tank. I genuinely thought he'd lost his voice and the upper parts of his range until those rehearsal's of him doing Hell's Bells and Thunderstruck leaked. That was the moment that I knew that Ginger cunt never lost it in the first place. Watching say the Golden Gods performance of 2014 then Vegas of 2016, the difference is unbelievable.
  10. At this stage, I'm just hoping he does himself justice. It's a helluva show they put on and I'll give credit where it's due, there's not many 56 year old's chanting those songs for that length of time. I hate knocking the guy, as I love to see him winning, but that 'mickey' voice we hear on the likes of Yesterdays, Better etc, I'm not convinced that's falsetto. I don't know what it is, but I would like to know the reason for the different approach where as with AC/DC, he was balls to the wall every show for 2+ hours and able to sustain that level of performance. I've got the Apollo show and Inglewood on my iPod. From the Apollo show, I listen to the first 5 songs then skip to Knockin' On Heavens Door, Sorry and Patience. That's a big chunk of the show that I skip. I still think for the most part he is singing better than he was 2011-14, but I can see why fans aren't happy with the current efforts too. I reckon with the soundboards, there is no hiding from any flaws or weaknesses in performance, whereas live, his approach seems to work to please the masses as they were getting some fantastic reviews. People take in the show differently too. I mind some fella trying to argue with me on that GNR fanspot page because I said at Slane Castle, I didn't think Axl was on form for the most part, accepting that it was the first show of that leg and putting it down to that, but he wasn't having it. Then I had a friend who was also there, seen the band at Leeds in 2002, Glasgow in 2006 and said that Slane is the best show he's been to. Probably the nostalgia of Duff and Slash I put that down to
  11. Yeah, I see where you're coming from. I had a sort of similar sound to how he does Riff Raff in my head. Obviously not to everyone's liking, but on a good night I reckon he'd do a good job at it.
  12. I'm not convinced. I reckon he'd do a decent job at it. Recorded in 1986, released in 2018 as a single and is currently in the top 10 in whatever chart in the States. Additional promotion would be to play it.
  13. No Shadow of Your Love? That's a shame.
  14. In the States, it got into the top 10 on release. It was unheard of at that time to have a single at 6 minutes. In the UK, it was number one in both '75 and '91 as a joint A side with These Are The Days of Our Lives.
  15. You're probably right. Interesting why there never was any official videos, Axl seemed that he intended to 3 years later during the interview he did on That Metal Show. Better was more or less a similar video to this one in terms of live shots, just less exciting!
