  1. It’s weird watching how much Axl is just over AFD by ‘89. “I don’t want to live my life through that album.” You can feel the hunger that drove the UYI’s. They didn’t bury it but they did something special with those albums and the tour. I wonder if that desire still exists. I say that with respect to Chinese in the sense that... I wonder if he can just let that album stand now as it is and start clean. Or if the rest of his professional life will be in one way or another justifying and selling CD (the album, the decisions around it, the time investment, trying to do stuff with the unreleased tracks).
  2. What a badass. Did she snake dance in the halls? welcome to junior high... you know where you are?
  3. I’m just happy I was there to witness the moment GNR really broke into the mainstream.
  4. I get kind of sick of practicing guitar to AFD sometimes. He's got like 30 years of playing those songs on me, haha. You can only stretch out so much within those boxes.... hence the bowls full of shreddies on some nights, I figure . Plus... I think the worst concert in the 80's or 90's was probably way more interesting as a player than concerts nowadays... in terms of the crowd vibe... except maybe those occasional Central / South American shows.
  5. Why can't you post links or requests if TB isn't behind the take downs... what am I not considering.... if it's just some incel rent-a-cops, what is the risk? This band is now about as rock n roll as a CVS.
  6. I think that's kale.
  7. Oh yeah? I did read it... like 13 years ago now (holy shit!). Guess I forgot . It’s interesting Slash says he begins writing songs with his drummer. I wonder how that bodes for GNR with Frank.
  8. Axl doesn’t strike me as a stoner. I feel like the whole NITL crew could use some weed... loosen up the whole enterprise.
  9. NITL is over, finito?

    I skipped, too. Myles from the vids I saw wasn’t even a good version of Myles! And I don’t really love his SMKC singing on his best days. He seemed spent.
  10. Setlist for 2020

    For sure... but don't forget to make it dead. The sort of neon amps backdrop when they do Slither is cool. Just the Marshall's with Slash's little chick logo on there pulsing with colors.
  11. Setlist for 2020

  12. For sure... but Axl never had a dearth of instrumentals, nor was Slash ever not constantly spitting out riffs and ideas like an uncapped oil well. But we'll see!
  13. It’d be awesome. Axl is so shy, though, (and Slash... why the fuck is GNR all shy guys now? What is this Super Mario Bros? boom!). I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a fan, though. Billy Corgan, Rob Zombie... lots of musicians say they listen all the time. The Steven Tyler one was great. You’re right about Slash... this interviewer was okay but no real revelations aside from the chips. That’s why I liked his appearance on Chris Hardwick’s podcast (even though I don’t listen to it otherwise) because they geeked out about dinosaurs and all this random shit.
  14. That would be the best. Send him off with some Elk meat.
  15. I like the image of a tipsy Slash being like “Ax check it out” and playing the Coma instrumental. Just an interminable power chord slog for 10 minutes... Axl just kind of looking around like... tf? And a montage of Axl leaning against the shower wall, chopping vegetables and doing this demo... trying to figure out what the f to do with it for weeks on end.
  16. Slash likes salt and vinegar chips! Already worth the listen.
  17. Nightrain is the ultimate opener. ISE is cool, but for a band at this stage of the game, open it with an epic punch in the face. I mean the train horn and that A power chord.... way better than the endless jungle intro for pumping you up! Also, move Paradise City into the main set. I know they won’t, but closing with Rocket Queen would be cool.... since it’s the epic finale of AFD. It might give Paradise a new lease on life and feel less obligated. You don’t enjoy it the same when there’s confetti everywhere and you’re thinking about getting to your car.
  18. That blues spot he did like a month ago shows he’s still got it all at his disposal.
  19. NITL is over, finito?

    NITL is dead! Long live NITL! so many dates have tried, to say the tour has dieee-ee—ied, but baby it ain’t over till it’s ohhhh-ver
  20. I like your changes. The worst part of the OG is the Tour 2019, and that font suits the band name way better.
  21. pretty pleasant little thang
  22. Is this a thing? I think we’ve reached peak insanity as a community
  23. Forget the tone, his point was improvising more within the melodic ideas of the original songs. TMAC your posts always have a “I just did a few rails” vibe. Maybe it’s the emojis . /nightrain whistle
  24. New Slash interview about Smkc

    TMAC20 (OP of this thread) said in another post he heard it from a Myles / Tremonti interview on Blabbermouth about a month ago. I only have the second-hand info -- maybe he can link it.
  25. Are you making this a generational thing?? haha. Damn kids wouldn't know guitar if a Les Paul smacked 'em upside the head. And another thing!... I love Slash, he's the reason I play guitar, but I think it's fair to say sometimes he can sort of lean on meandering shredding, especially now that he's technically way more proficient. Especially on songs he didn't write... probably because they don't inspire him as much, or he's sort of searching for ideas as he's playing them. But even his own stuff... the RQ solo during SMKC really started to get a little... ponderous (Noodle-y!) . For a counter-example, the new bluesy solo spot... very emotive.
