  1. Ironically, VR's albums sound way more dated than Chinese Democracy, despite most of the CD songs being written in 1997-1999 and inspired by 1992/1995 fads. VR sounds heavily dated to both mid 2000s and mid 90s at the same time.
  2. I heard the alt version of Don't Cry on the radio this afternoon. It's weird enough to hear anything besides WTTJ/Brownstone/PC/SCOM and maybe sometimes Patience, so just the start of Don't Cry had me perk up and then the alt lyrics started and I was
  3. That's an interesting quote now that Slash has played the majority of CD songs live and praised them and Bucket's guitar work. Now he can relate to what Axl was trying to do, it just took a long time.
  4. Lmao Dizzy has done nothing to get a hate thread out of the blue
  5. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    I don't think anyone was wondering why he kept SMKC alive, dawg
  6. How can nerds be worried about the new Terminator being a "feminist" movie when the whole series is built on the shoulders of a strong female character that is the main character in 3 movies and a TV series and even in the movies that she isn't in, her presence and values are still integral to the plot and story? OH NO THIS SERIES ABOUT A STRONG WOMAN HAS STRONG WOMEN IN THE NEW VERSION. Lmao. Fucking goofs.
  7. It's weird that 1993 had things so bad the band imploded, yet on stage they were the most in sync and dialed in than probably any year. 1987-1992 shows all had a real tension and intensity and no one seemed to be enjoying themselves on stage. 1993 feels way more relaxed and everyone seems to be having a good time and that tension that blew up the band was, ironically, completely absent on stage.
  8. I guess it's pretty fortuitous he hasn't attempted it in 25 years then
  9. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I think it's just you, actually

    Not giving a shit about someone's t-shirt is definitely more adult than getting pissy because someone is wearing a shirt but isn't a REAL fan. That's literally the behavior of an annoying 15 year old.
  11. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    It's a fucking t shirt, get a grip nerd

    Lmao @ being an adult and giving a shit if someone wearing a band shirt is a real fan or not
  13. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    NuGuns (or whatever you want to call it, be it WAR, Axl Rose and Friends, or Guns N Roses) only diminished the legacy of the band/Axl in those last 2-3 years, and even then there were still flashes of greatness from time to time. 2012-2013 were some dark days and it seemed like Axl and the brand was dead. But 2002, 2006-2007, 2009-2010 versions of the band/Axl were completely valid as their own entities with loads of great shows and performances from all involved. I would hate to think of never getting any of those performances because of nerds being precious about the name of the band.

    Izzy ultimately benefited the most from being in this band. The other 4 would have become big stars (to varying degrees) with other bands, Izzy's boring dad rock mentality would have never made it out of the 80s without the other guys boosting his sound. Which is not to diminish his impact on the band, but I don't think anyone would know his name if he had been in a different band.
  15. I'm inclined to believe Shadow has a new guitar track based on it having a new intro and solo that otherwise doesn't appear on any of the versions (demo, live, or final cut) recorded originally and is how Slash played it in 2018. Seems strange to me that that version of the intro and solo were never played in any fashion before the Locked and Loaded set version.
  16. God damn anything that isn't a vintage tour shirt is so garbage in the shop
  17. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I don't know that it's trash but it's basically Steak N Shake but a lot faster and a lot cheaper. It's certainly about as overrated as can be, it's just decent cheap fast food burgers.
  18. Alter Bridge is not and has never been "cool". Unless you're a mid 40s metal dad who still gels your hair and likes large leather bracelets
  19. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I'm not at all bothered by the same setlists or lack of new music coming from this band
  20. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    I was listening to the Stockholm show at the gym today. Between the extended solos on Shadow Life and World on Fire, they could probably fit 5 songs into the setlist without exaggeration.
  21. I'd like to have heard a Slash/Lzzy Hale album. Or even just a single song, I guess.
  22. I would go to GNR doing an all covers show tbh. A much smaller venue and relaxed atmosphere, cheaper prices, obviously, but a full set of the covers they've done of the years and some new ones would be pretty cool, imo.
  23. Has the band done any bar/private shows with the NITL unit?
