  1. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    The Smiths - That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
  2. but great like the stones is the greatest or like the beatles. Gn'R never claimed to be that good. Axl seemed to mock himself in the interview he did in 2016 about how the Gn'R catalog was small. I believe they could have released a full acoustic album expanding on lies and take it to a more rock n' roll based place like on Appetite letting Izzy guide it and and go for a more AC/DC-ish career but maybe a little more varied but their egos didn't allow it and different musical goals.

    spit roast Verb: to spit roast. A sexual activity involving 3 people, two active males and one passive (male or female). Man 1 penetrates person 2 from the rear (anal or vaginal) while he/she sucks the penis of person 3.
  4. The "New Album" Thread

    I think maybe it kinda shows a Gn'R release is different. Maybe bigger and comes with certain expectations. So it's more about how Axl will like to do it. Figuring out the best or right approach.
  5. he didn't want to deal with another lead singer. He wanted to share all vocal duties with Duff. I guess he was careful for a reason cause it did sour eventually. Izzy avoids that shit at all cost sometimes even the possibility of it.
  6. John Frusciante returns to RHCP

    Josh wanted them to make an album in the style of The Uplift Mofo Party Plan. Not that I think they would ever go with that direction again. It's been a while since they've done a full on funk rock type album. I think Josh's time with the band was fruitful, but none of the 3 albums really took advantage of what Josh was capable of contributing. it's so much about Flea's and John's musical interaction that I'm sure that's easier to rely on and that's my favorite line up but they were in good hands and it worked, it was just different and also John's talent must bring with it a lot of advantages for the band and his name maybe will sell more tickets as well.
  7. it's not going to be the same without Izzy but are we really going to pretend a song Axl and Slash potentially worked on together and with Duff isn't going to work as a great Guns song cause some manager from 40 years ago thinks Izzy was important too? It might not have that rock n' roll Stones thing which was a big thing, Izzy wrote Nightrain but a new record could still contain enough classic elements or just be a great record like Chinese was.
  8. but will they still get stadium sized offers? how does that work? anyway, it's a shame the band or Axl are kinda taking their time with really going for it with the reunion shows. I guess I can see them not doing much in the studio in 2020 and in 2021 the band could be not active and Slash can do something else. Even if they said at least that in 2021 they're gonna enter a studio and start real work that would have been at least something. Very standard thing to share for a band usually
  9. interest is already not on the same initial level. Maybe the best incentive or something fans can at least count on as a reason for Axl to truly focus on recording and/or releasing the next album
  10. John Frusciante returns to RHCP

    I think they look pretty good for their age. They still sound like themselves which is cool. I've listened today to the 3 albums with Josh. I think my favorite out of those is I'm Beside You. It contains 2 brilliant songs, 1 is Josh's favorite with them I've read (Never Is A Long Time) and the other is Pink As Floyd. I wish they gave Josh more creative control. He's a well rounded musician that could have maybe even transformed their sound if given a lot of musical freedom so also like a producer/engineer role. They have done this with John. But the band tried to push themselves with every release since 2009. There's even a tune on I'm Beside You with a great rhythmic riff that Josh came up with.
  11. Jesus Rolls (2020) Lebowski spin off

    wow not going to bother watching this shit. This actor can be in a much better film. It's sad when they're not even trying sometimes. If you're not going to do something original than it must be at least really cool imo
  12. I appreciate those vocals from a technical standpoint and the emotion is there too, but idk, it's too much for what the song required imo. Less dynamics compared to the official version, it's mostly full on and it feels like it's too aggressive.
  13. The "New Album" Thread

    maybe they'll do kinda what Metallica did with Hardwired To Self Destruct and take a few years with recording sometimes but also sometimes doing nothing or touring but they'll record when they can and maybe complete and release a double album like that. I wish they had dedicated 2020 for just writing and recording the next album. No doubt in my mind that Slash will release another Conspirators album with Myles before Axl even talks about doing something serious.
  14. the solo is still one of Slash's best imo. It's just overplayed and there are much better Gn'R tunes but still a great song. They will never play a full show without doing it. The casuals will riot. It must be at least mostly nostalgic cause that is what this brand is selling.
  15. I was talking about the last 4 years. Reunion years. I see your point, I just mean this setlist was constructed for a reason: more of a something for everyone so basically more money cause more Gn'R spenders want a lot from most of the records they identify Gn'R with and some hardcore fans may get bored so they bring back a couple of UYI tracks and learn a few covers so no one can say it's not an all new show.
  16. well the big additions in recent years have been Coma, Locomtive, Dead Horse, DTJ, SOYL, and Slither and that's my point: if they do in average 25 to 30 tunes a show, there are only about less than 10 tunes they rotate. A song will never take the place of PC or WTTJ or Nightrain. They can do anything they want but their goal is also to give as many fans what they want when they come to see a show so like many other bands with a known and loved catalog, they try to find a certain balance. It works and if you change it you get something that could be less appealing to more people.
  17. The "New Album" Thread

    but he tinkered like no one has ever tinkered
  18. you can't do a modern Gn'R show by the book designed to work without doing: wttj,it's so easy, brownstone, kohd, lald, PC, Nightrain, Patience/don't cry, Chinese, a few main CD era tunes, civil war, November Rain, Estranged, YCBM, RQ/MM/OTGM, SCOM then you add on top of that DTJ/Slash solo spot, Coma and other uyi tunes like Yesterdays or UTLH/You're Crazy sometimes and a lot of covers so you're already at more than 20 tunes you kinda have to play at least that's their formula which can feel restricting as a fan and unexciting even if it does show how strong the material is but it's 20 years with almost 2/3 of the setlist is comprised of the same tunes.
  19. The "New Album" Thread

    you really think the quality of Slash's riffs is the problem? every classic Gn'R album contains at least a few of Slash's riff based tunes, it's a part of the character of the music so when Axl said in 2016 he wants to first write lyrics and then do the music that doesn't mean the entire album maybe just a part of it. I think Axl, Slash, and Duff know a thing or two about putting together a song. I don't think there are music issues. Could be good for Slash to try a little harder but no issues in the riffs/solos department imo. He actually played less notes in LDT and used single coils a lot and for a better sound for specific riffs it just needs to be inspired.
  20. The "New Album" Thread

    and that's my main thing when it comes to Gn'R: no matter how many times Axl doesn't release new albums, sometimes he does, but maybe only when the conditions are right for a big release and the latest musical statement from Gn'R is actually ready. Does seem like making as much money as possible first was added recently to the band's rule book though but maybe cause they're older now and the temptation to hit the nostalgia note hard was too great to resist. doing one of the biggest tours in history is such a Guns N' Roses thing. Maybe they'll do it backwards (lol): first the huge tour to celebrate they're back and then a double album with another huge tour in the future. And maybe not, but that's Axl. I totally believe that his preference is to go out with a bang with at least a final record with Slash and Duff.
  21. I still think they're just going for a fifth year of touring so maybe just small changes, Hard School if we're lucky. Axl probably won't talk about a new album until he's confident enough it's moving in the right direction, it's taking form, etc. Maybe not even then. my guess is they are being way more careful with promises of a release. It happens in Axl time as per usual.
  22. clunky start as usual. Axl didn't even pull off the vocals for Better. On the other hand, You're Crazy is a brand new track Axl is gearing up for a release.
  23. The "New Album" Thread

    at this point the only move to show this is still a forward looking band heh is to release a new album but Gn'R fans getting overexcited and threatening to not spend anymore money on the band or not follow it cause Axl still didn't release anything again is nothing new
