  1. Good rock music has a sexuality and physicality that people lose touch with as they age. I think metal is actually more forgiving for older musicians from a look and feel prospective.
  2. Both those examples are spot on! I do agree with papashaun, though, that there is a lot of regrettable late career rock music. I'm pretty skeptical of any new Guns album. A Different Kind of Truth used material left over from the 80's and Blue and Lonesome features classic songs the Stones cut their teeth on and never recorded. It seems like a lot of bands can get more technically proficient (or at least maintain their chops) but lose touch with their ability to write. All the more reason to dig up the stuff from the 90's writing sessions, if it exists in any form (which I highly doubt).
  3. This next one's called Lick My Love Pump. 

  4. I think Axl will put out a book. I just have this feeling he'll get that late in life urge to set the record straight from his point of view. Once your world starts shrinking with advancing age... it'd be tough to resist.
  5. Copyright Strikes....

    haha oh man really?? "My brain is fried doing all these truck designs; gotta relax. Oh yeah this looks good... mmm.... wait.... is that a November Rain rehearsal?! Those crafty sons of bitches.... Dizzy, hold my cock."
  6. Copyright Strikes....

    You get back there and keep sifting! Hands where I can see em.
  7. Songs about GNR

    You make me sicker than the wine you drink.... Ax is so fancy.
  8. We need a "Get In The Ring" sequel for the 21st century called "Mr. Security Man."
  9. You are a sexual being.
  10. I can't comprehend how such a vital band is becoming a busted-ass KISS... makes those Slash digs at Paul Stanley ring a little hollow (even though I doubt he would book a flight on GNAir of his own volition). I think at this point I'm just hoping Dexter will come back and call us all bitch boi's one more time before I clock out permanently.
  11. New release! Plow your garden of eden with our latest creation — Nightrain. Nine thunderous silicone inches. All aboard!
  12. What the fuck is GNAir? I'm quitting this band.
  13. I'd like to dedicate this song to a cheap punk named Jake Gyllenhaal. ... they call me the seeker...
  14. Copyright Strikes....

    In 1987, Appetite for Destruction was released... by the following summer Guns N' Roses had changed the face of music with their volatile blend of blues rock. 32 years later, the audiovisual legacy of the band is kept under tight seal by a pair of socially-retarded incels.
  15. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    Combined with the fact that he can’t do anything about it.... even though he’s an “equal member.” Can’t rock the GNR Corp. boat. Fitz in GNR would be smokin!
  16. Hate to be a downer but it has that feel of the worst aspects of rock music still lingering about... Hollywood Vampires etc.... What kind of musical chemistry are these guys going to have? Four guitarists? Two shred leads, a 70 year old Ace Frehley and Gilby? What is this? It's gonna be loud... in a leaf blower sort of way. Could be wrong, though!
  17. https://player.fm/series/rolling-stone-music-now-170040/duff-mckagan-the-rolling-stone-interview Reads books... travels... the civil war... Anne Frank's house.... Stones as setting the benchmark for older touring rock bands. Axl apparently busts his ass with the vocal warm-ups and cool-downs. Lots of anecdotes about Tenderness recording, inspirations... #MeToo, Parkland. He doubles down on the It's So Easy as tounge-in-cheek... different cultural context than today (Sunset in the 80's as an empowered free love kind of thing?). A piss take on everything going the band's way when they were nobodies. One in a Million as a character story; leaving it off the box set. #WokeAxl GNR as not right wing / left wing, political. Captain America's been torn apart... Farts. Steve Jones as major inspiration. Scott Weiland / Prince / Cornell as inspiration for Feel. Depression struggles. Positive perspective gained from addiction experiences and close calls. "We're in extra innings." Izzy! "I don't have a take.... it wasn't from not trying." "Touring is not for everybody." Host: "He said it came down to money." "Duff: Yeah. I don't even know. I love the guy." "Maybe some other time." His reuniting with Axl anecdote in 2010. "Are you guys sort of hired guns of Axl's or in a band?" "We're in the band." "New music would be wonderful." "Doesn't feel like a finite thing." "Nobody needs to know our business, we got into trouble in the past with that." DUFF MCKAGAN On IZZY STRADLIN's Non-Involvement In GUNS N' ROSES Reunion: 'Maybe Some Other Time' http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/duff-mckagan-on-izzy-stradlins-non-involvement-in-guns-n-roses-reunion-maybe-some-other-time/?fbclid=IwAR3arDJ_0-b4ubARng8XhHPwudKLWlMkoW3XdF0GcZ09lQrhGZ9a-KmVgtw I liked it better than the WTF interview; it felt a little more substantial as the host knows more about the band and it's history (is a fan too, I believe). Guarded as ever about the internal machinations but so it goes!
  18. Live Era

    I don’t know why they messed with YCBM. The Tokyo DVD version is really great and better unedited. At least they kept that ending scream... fucking legendary! With that pulsing whammy... I love GNR, I love live albums... I never listen to Live Era anymore. Feels too cut and pasted; disjointed — just doesn’t work for me.
  19. We don't speak about 2... her Chinese Democracy .
  20. Harper Lee only had the one book! I do think he probably needs Stradlin... just because of their history they have an equal power dynamic and can shade in each-other's weakspots. I don't hold it against him that he needs a songwriting partner as that's pretty common among the greats. I do think it sucks, though, that he doesn't acknowledge it or want to re-establish it!
  21. Happy Bday SLASH!

    What a fucking legend! Is that instagram pic with Steven from the NITL shows? That's a sweet pic. Such a unique musical voice. The definition of feel.
  22. Steven comes out: Frank comes back: /snip
  23. Haha... I love the twitter comments: TRUCKS BABY.
  24. Yeah dude -- Blabbermouth just decided to write up the Rolling Stone podcast interview. This thread is a month old .
