  1. During what song is that? I reacted on that when I watch some of the songs on YouTube. Slash was dangerously close that projectile..
  2. I'm not sure it's Axl who drags it. It's Slash (I believe) who normally plays a certain way before Axl kicks in. Almost everything that drags during these NITL concerts, outros or in the middle, seems to be a Slash thing. He plays better than ever, but that starting to annoy me.
  3. This Better is not better than top three 2016, but better than any version I've heard 2017 vocally. Half-clean but powerful voice right at the start, with an underlying but gentle rasp with a lot more dynamic than usual. Like it. The outro is a bit helium thou.. but doesn't bother me. Edit* Axls voice on SOYL is awsome. But what the fuck Axl.!?!. did you have a stroke?? Totally off rytm. Again. And it's not just on SOYL. He do that occasionally on TIL and other songs too.. I wonder what instruments he hear on stage?? Usually they have individual settings with some instruments louder/clearer and some totally muted.
  4. I want prostitute and/or sorry in the setlist instead of covers. Hell, even I.R.S if he could managed it vocally.. thats an high pitched song so probably he would.
  5. This is 2018 Compared to 1992 So.. Let's compare. The first 15-20 seconds (counting from where the video begins) sounds Mickey, but lets for the sake of it ignore that. Let's split his voice, of pedagogical reasons, into his core clean voice in both versions. It sounds pretty much the same. Hell, the 92 voice sounds actually more whiny behind the cracks/rasp Overall the 92 versions sounds not raspy but cracky compared to 2018. Yes, there's less crack or rasp 2018.. BUT when there's rasp, even if its moderate, it does sound better. Listen at 1:05 when he sings "ooooooh got nothing for me" on the chorus. Much better. And he does sound more relaxed and professional from that point forward.. I think, from our side, we're not objective. We lay so much weight on those weak spots that we don't hear how good he actually sings on the rest of the songs.
  6. I honestly think some of us, including me, exaggerate. He doesn't sound that bad in general. He still nail pretty much every highlight moment vocally... during a concert it's at most 25% where he sound bad or less good. 25% of the time he's still a world class vocalist that still amazes me and others..
  7. I think you miss my point. Of course those two words doesn't matter for the experience. My point was that he also use Mickey with acdc, but the song only demands two words of it. But as you said.. I agree that he CAN do more rasp. But referring to ac/dc makes your point weak of said reasons. Just listen to the sing a long part on KOHD where he sing the last "knock knock knocking on heavens doooooOoor" and start lower in tune but powerful with full rasp.. in a tune where he mostly use Mickey nowadays.. Edit 6:42 Btw, here below we can hear him doing just small sections of Mickey ..but overall he sings yesterday way better than any 2017 version. When he start sounding good in mid tune songs like yesterday's, we should be hopeful. And I don't need him to sing any better than this and nor do probably 95% of the ppl attending to the actual concerts.
  8. Yes, that's the original explanation I've heard. He didn't want to tour and being a part of the giant guns n roses had become. I'm 100% sure he said it himself in the mid '90s and was the main reason he dropped the UYI tour. When Axl formed his new gnr the explanations why Izzy left changed among "reunion fans" to fit the picture of Axl as a band dictator and such. It was because of Axl. But one more thing I'm 100% sure Izzy said is that Slash was drowning Izzys guitar with way too high volume and lowered Izzys volume on the sly during concerts.. Axl wanted gnr to be as big as possible, and I think that's the main surface of friction between Axl and Izzy. They had totally opposite visions of the band.

  10. Listen to the chorus when he sings "dirty deeds" every second time. That line goes in pretty much the same tune as ycbm. And... there's Mickey.
  11. Yes, I agree that particular 2016 version is better. But isn't that 2018 version sounding like old Axl trying to sing like CD era Axl? He got a much deeper voice on the verses.. Btw, his clean voice fits TIL really well.. actually amazingly well. "And all the love I have inside, I can't denyyyy.." for example is a line that sounds strong but clean at the same time. Some don't seem to realize that's an improvement he's made from the old era. It's when he's using the same teqnique on lower tunes (like YCBM) it doesn't sound well.
  12. He does use the same voice in his own band when the tunes are similar to acdc. Nightrain, SOYL, TIL chorus, the higher notes on PC, the stick on YCBM (where he use high pitch rasp) etc. etc.. and he sounds just as good with guns on those notes as he did with acdc.
  13. Wow he said really interesting stuff between 12:00 and 15:00. I never heard that he played some "new" stuff for Slash and Duff..
