  1. Axl sounds freaking wonderful and so does the band. That is all.
  2. Can't believe they're actually playing tonight in light of all the show cancellations announced around the world this week. Looking forward to watching a livestream for the first time since probably the final 2017 Forum gig!
  3. (Thank you!) This would be a bit of a lift. I live about 400 miles from the studio and don’t plan to be back until early next year to finish up the next album. I’m currently on a road trip but when I get back I’ll see if I have an early unmastered mix lying around from before the solos were put on. If I don’t, I’d recommend maybe just taking the four bars from before the first verse vocals start and loop it a few times in GarageBand? Good luck!
  4. This makes me smile. I sped it up juuuust a little bit hoping to get a combo of Steven and Matt's styles going. I'm super happy that you guys seem to be enjoying this so far. Sincere thanks to everyone who's taking the time to check it out, leaving your take on it, etc., and cheers to RussTCB and the mods for letting me do this!
  5. Yep, thank you! And regarding the above post, I’ll totally own the Green Day vocal comparison. As an unwise person once said, you go to war with the army you have, and over many years of hearing GN’R covers I’ve learned that a great way to mangle a GN’R tune is to go out of your way to try to sound like Axl. He is one of a kind and you can both hurt yourself and sound terrible trying! Cheers
  6. *Posted in main section with permission from RussTCB* Hi fellow GN’R fans, I’m a longtime MyGNR member, mostly lurker, and have been a member of the other forums since their inception. Back when I was a kid, I used to be a part of the AOL message board community. Perhaps some of you were as well. Anyhoo, I’m a lifelong musician/songwriter and also work as an attorney in California. A couple of years ago, I had a pretty serious health scare involving six months or so of some pretty intense hospital treatment. I’m alright now, but it definitely made me re-evaluate my life and my priorities. As a result, and with the help of coming into a finite amount of money that I wasn’t expecting, I decided to quit my law job for all of 2018 to live off my savings and get my entire catalog of music recorded that I’d written throughout my adult life and never really had the chance to pursue properly due to always working and/or being in school. It’s multiple albums’ worth of material, and the first batch is being released today. I also recorded several tribute covers to the bands who inspired me the most as a musician. Guns N’ Roses are obviously very high on that list. I chose to cover “Locomotive” in part to show how much I love the band, and also because I’ve long considered it to be the great white whale fan favorite that perhaps never got its due. I of course had no idea they’d start playing it live again a few weeks back. In fact, I heard my final mastered version for the first time at the exact moment they played it for the first time in Kansas. I got my completed mastered album delivered to me that weekend, listened to it for the first time that Monday night, logged onto the internets right after, and lo and behold, they played it! You just can’t make this stuff up. I wanted to share this with you guys since this is the place I’ve gone for a decade or longer at this point to hear from GN’R fans who are just as passionate about the band as I am. Whether it was posting a dingy garage-recorded cover of “Pretty Tied Up” in 2007, the Axl chats in 2008, or being at opening night of NITL in Vegas and posting a review, I have a lot of fond memories of this place. The album and these tributes were recorded without any sort of expectation of money or fame or anything like that. My music is just that important to me, and getting it done really turned out to be good for my well-being. I’ve never been happier. It’s safe to say that life’s a lot easier to go through without a head full of unfinished business. With that, I hope you guys get a kick out of this! Cheers.
