  1. Am I crazy or just blind. I'm not seeing the link.
  2. There was a great interview with some of the Blind Melon guys a couple months ago where they told some AMAZING Axl and Shannon stories. Fist fights between the two! The slash and axl parts in the new movie are old clips filmed by Shannon right? I would kill to hear Axl comment on Shannon's passing. I never saw a word from him about it and always wondered if they were still close at the time. I know Duff played at a Shannon benefit concert after he passed.

    How about from the previous NITL legs? Would love to hear your thoughts on some of the highlights from '16-'18. Kudos again on your "rejected" Vegas design. I keep going back and looking at it. Absolutely killer.

    @facefirst had the sickest design for Vegas. Love the new Axl look, loved the color scheme, swirling background colors were amazing. Would kill to have that poster in my collection. And I haven't seen a design that made me really excited for quite a few legs of this tour. Can't believe it didn't get chosen. @facefirst have you kept up with the other lithos from the tour? Do you have any favs besides your own lol.

    I was at both NJ shows that year and wondered why they didn't number that 2nd night. Do we have any insight into that, or whether or not the amount printed was the same as the night before?
  6. You know I'm rereading Chinese Whispers and seeing all these quotes from players on the album commenting that the songs were over produced and painted over so many times that the original beauty was obscured. Got me thinking if 11 years removed does Axl look back on those tracks thinking the same thing? We've never had a direct comment from him speaking negatively about the tracks themselves right? Just comments on the actual process.

    Some of the lithos I would classify as most underrated, or underappreciated, would be Winnipeg and The Gorge, both done by Ulrich. I like more of Buhler's but Planer is still super talented.

    The color scheme against the night sky might be the only redeeming factor to me. But what a missed opportunity for a cigarette pack with the classic UYI era skull/top hat/revolvers being used as the skull for the surgeon general warning.

    Please please please help me to appreciate the giant coffee pot lol. I was at that show and went with a buddy who I had been showing my other lithos to and hyping him up. Couldn't wait to see the design that night. I had thought maybe cigarette inspired [in Winston Salem, N.C] and then the unveiling...a coffee pot?! What do you like about this one? I guess the colors are cool but I'm at a loss after that.
  10. Thanks for linking to that thread I had forgotten a lot of the details. Also didn't know about Bucket refusing to sign copies of C.D. what a shame. I'm sure he looks back on the time as a real downer and thinks of what could have been.
  11. Do we have any post-gnr quotes from Bucket directly attributed to him about his time/feelings of the band?
  12. For any musicians and lyricists on the board, are songs like Coma and Locomotive any easier to put lyrics to in comparison to songs like Devious Bastards and Circus Maximus? I dont have any type of talent for that sort of thing so I have no clue what's involved. But would you say the Buckethead instrumentals are harder to write too because they're more unconventional?
  13. Thats very cool. Did they tease it and build to it all hour long? Or they played it right away? Did Piazza say he heard it before they played it that night or was he waiting to hear it for the first time?

    Do you have a favorite top 3 so far?
  15. Maybe he will say he was hacked like they said happened to Axl's Twitter when he abruptly canceled the tour a few years ago? Or maybe we'll just walk into the record store one day and see a new album on the shelves! Remember that line?!
