  1. Thoughts on Madagascar?

    The song has incredible depth and emotion to it; Axl really did manage to convey what it was that he wanted to come across through this song, to the fans, to the world, and to that one particular person. It is one of his babies and given its good performances on this tour, I'm glad that it's been retained as a setlist standard for sometime now.
  2. What a pair. Which makes me wonder whether Richard anything to do with Slash's return, given how much Slash liked his style as a guitarist that he tried to recruit him years back.
  3. That's pretty cool and happy for the South Africans! I love the artsy venue that Gn'R will be playing at!
  4. Let's hope it isn't the upcoming setlist and that we do get some refreshments, Shadow Of Your Love included!
  5. I personally like it - quite vivacious, has a groovy rhythm to it. More or less stands for what Gn'R were in their early days. Pity it seemingly won't make it into the setlist; Axl could easily pull this number off and many fans would feel reinvigorated by it alone.
  6. That's quite a vivacious selection to add! With the helpful suggestions from Gackt, here is my idea for a setlist: It's So Easy Mr. Brownstone Shadow Of Your Love If The World Welcome To The Jungle Double Talkin' Jive Better Estranged Live And Let Die Rocket Queen You Could Be Mine Street Of Dreams Civil War Locomotive Sweet Child O' Mine November Rain Knockin' On Heaven's Door Nightrain I.R.S. Prostitute Paradise City
  7. Clearly that is not a "politically correct world" but an anti-white world we live in.
  8. If this is played live on tour it would be an excellent choice!
  9. It does sound quite fishy I do remember reading somewhere that he flew so many thousands of kilometres, without first consulting with the band, then appearing at gigs & forcibly requesting to perform a song or two with the band, at which Axl was annoyed/irritable, but allowed out of guilt at the thought of denying him after so much effort of travel. Knowing this, I would be beyond certain that Frank was the meant-to-be drummer & Steven was just thrown in for a few random appearances. Other than that, my personal feeling about Steven is that he's just stuck in the past & hasn't in any way evolved with drumming; he was perfect for Appetite For Destruction, but past this point his style has shown to be outdated.
  10. Hey how do you all feel about the idea if they played Locomotive live instead of Coma? Coma was sorely missed during the UYI Tour all the way until it was properly played live for the entire NITL Tour so far. It feels more or less like it has done its justice live; how do you feel if Locomotive replaced the song live to give it some justice too? Personally, I grew up very much with this song & one of the things I desire most about it is its several-minutes-long last solo. Frank Ferrer also seems like the guy that would fall in love with this type of song & give it even more justice than originallly deserved. Although Coma is UYI I & Locomotive is UYI II & deeper, more intense, would this affect the balance of the setlist? Personally, To hear This I Love, CIvil War, then Locomotive instead of Coma would not matter overly, but then during the Sydney 10th February 2017 concert they didn't play Coma anyways. Nonetheless, as a small child in the late 1990s, I grew up heavily with Locomotive; it was only during the Japanese Live Era realease that I had gotten to know Coma & seeing that Locomotive is during the studio version a more fade-out song, wouldn't everybody be more curious to see how it would sound properly finished in a live scenario? Also, although some wouldn't highly rate Frank, most seem to really like his takes on You Could Be Mine & Coma; doesn't one think that Locomotive might also be within his line of expertise?
  11. Although I voted "Admiration for making amends with Slash and the reunion", I think that it goes much further in depth than just that & it'd be a bit too one-track-minded to exclusively feel this & only this. My general feeling is that Axl has thrown away years of potential & may be (I hope to be proven wrong) taking the easy route by embracing perhaps the last few years of his musical career by taking one last shot at playing at least partly with those with whom he shot to sky high fortune & fame. Chinese Democracy is a very admirable album with a lot of depth to it & of all the original members, he has proven to have the highest potential & ability to release a memorable album. But sadly, going back to what I was saying, only one single album of authentic new material released between the 1991 Use Your Illusions & now, is just too little commodity on his part. Additionally, his Appetite For Democracy live DVD release is for the most part a disappointment; too little Chinese Democracy material, not his best performance period, cheesy title with very little reason for one to purchase. If he was to release a double album worth of material, whether with Slash & Duff, or DJ Ashba, Bumblefoot & Tommy, with quality music like Chinese Democracy & tour it, I think that it would bring him back a lot of dignity in the music sense & a lot more respect from his fans. In fact, I would be extremely disappointed if he did not release any authentic new material before hanging up his boots once & for all.
  12. Well I at first wasn't so interested in this at all, but now, having read what priceless information the book is bound to have, I'm most certainly going to get it!
  13. I've thought long about Chinese Democracy & really do appreciate the creative masterpiece it is, even if some others can't see or feel it. Since the NITL Tour began, I've had a fascination with how the tracks being played sound with Slash & Duff. Thus, I felt that I'd open a new thread regarding mine & all others' thoughts & feelings about CD songs being played live, both those that have been played & those that have not, regarding their suitability at being played at current Gn'R shows. I will list mine according to the album's order & express my opinion on each. Chinese Democracy: Slash's guitaring breathes a new life into this number; the rough rock n' roll sound works well & although a rocker tune in the form of a calmer Perfect Crime or Right Next Door To Hell, its place in the setlist is of symbolic importance. Shackler's Revenge: I've always admired this track, feeling it a monster of a song but of a style that doesn't fit in with a classic Gn'R setlist. Better: Seemingly many peoples' favourite song from this album, even considered a masterpiece by many. Admittedly, it was widely favoured by myself during its '06 leaking & its performances are very solid & none less than professional. Although I've forgotten its spirit for sometime, I do concede that it is another CD essential for the setlist & fits in wonderfully to the setlist. Street Of Dreams: Not yet played live, but definitely a tune I'd be curious to hear performed. I'll bet that Slash can really embrace this one & make it his own. If The World: Now there's a funky, wild & unpredictable song that takes a turn at each corner. For sure a number I would love to hear Slash lay his magic onto; perhaps not a song for every concert but at least one to be performed to some significance. There Was A Time: I've always admired this song greatly & its feel greatly feels the flow of a Gn'R show, but something tells me that it is a bit foreign to Slash's way of guitaring. Scraped: A wild, crazy rocker which would be great performed at least a few shows. Definitely something I'd like to hear Slash own, but scratch my head often wondering whether Axl could handle its intensity. Riad N' The Bedouins: One song I can say doesn't even seem to fit within the CD album, let alone a Gn'R concert. Not a song I'd feel fit any show of any sorts really. Sorry: Now there is a song to really appreciate. Slash's bluesy work & mouthgapingly amazing extended solos make this a monster of a badass song in live setting; if only it would be brought permanently into the setlist. I.R.S.: A great passionate rocker from CD that I felt very happy to hear live in '07, but much like Shackler's Revenge, one that to me doesn't resonate with the flow of the energy of a typical Gn'R NITL concert. Madagascar: I'm glad to have seen it performed a number of times, fairly fitting, but I won't miss it if it is cut from the setlist in future. This I Love: Another Gn'R concert essential; Axl's passion & its perfect moulding into the Gn'R ballad category make it a must play song; Slash really gives the tune that right feel. Prostitute: Now there's another song I'd like to stay in the setlist. Just like the previous mentioned, one you could call a perfect Gn'R ballad & its beautiful smooth yet energetic flow truly fits a Gn'R setlist. Fans have long screamed for its live playing & after watching its performances, Slash own this number just as well & I hope that it stays part of the setlist.
  14. I have always admired his ability to explore various styles on all levels & just be himself without being concerned what the rest of the world thinks. This is something that has served as a positive role model towards constructing my own free-spirited persona. One thing that really makes me curious however, would be to know what sort of places, if at all, he likes to travel & see, in what manner & what new things he likes to discover by doing so. Everybody is different in this sense but all the points I've mentioned about travel can unveil certain things, to an extent at least, as to who somebody is deep inside, at the given time at least.
