  1. SMKC announce European headlining tour

    Just spotted this. The reason i went to TM was actually a link from Slash's website - I clicked there first, went to the tour page to see who the official seller was. I had similar pain with other websites not having tickets mind, maybe bad luck. I should have pointed out that I wanted stalls standing tickets. I sat down for my last Slash gig and didn't enjoy it (guy behind me kept telling our party to sit down all night, even though everyone else around us was stood up!).

    Sucker because, when i checked Ticketmaster all morning on the day of ticket release at work ducking in and out of meetings at the consternation of my boss the website either crashed, loaded perpetually when I clicked on Slash tickets without resolving, or told me the only remaining tickets were "platinum" tickets at something like £250pp, and seeing as I wanted tickets I found them elsewhere at a cheaper price? I despise the secondary ticket market, and am all for fans getting the tickets (not bots, touts, or profiteering non-fans who buy tickets simply to stick on Viagogo or eBay 5 mins later), but if the system or the way said artist has marketed the tickets allows those bots, touts or profiteering non-fans to get their hands on the tickets in the first place... Then the only way those tickets can end up in the hands of the fans (like me) is through the secondary market. Criticising people like me is not the solution here. The system needs an overhaul. Overall I paid £20pp more per person for the tickets, which I was happy with and which I would gladly have paid directly to SMK&C to give my money to the artist directly, had that option been available and as I do usually for other gigs (including the excellent The Aristocrats gig I went to in London this week). Maybe it's a London thing given the demand there. I can't get to Doncaster.

    London sold out mega fast. Bloody bot touts! Had to fork out £100pp via Viagogo for stalls standing tickets.
  4. I'm a huge GnR fan, my favourite band, but legacies are a difficult thing. I don't disagree with you. The fact they will leave a rock legacy is set in stone. But exactly what that legacy could become is a different thing. All bands leave a legacy to a certain extent. I worry that in 50 years time people will look back on GnR as a one album wonder with a legacy that reflects that, and consequently they pale compared to equivalent bands like Zep, ACDC, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and so many more. Slash is the only main individual who has a mainstream industry-wide respected talent and legacy. Unlike someone like the Sex Pistols, who shone brightly but ever so briefly, Guns have had a 30+ year career... But not much product to show for it. The future won't remember the "not in this lifetime" endless reminiscence tours, regardless of who is in the band at the time.
  5. The counter argument would be that, even if it were true that Macca has released years of ropey old shit, it hasn't damaged his reputation or legacy whereas releasing nothing potentially will.
  6. Chinese Democracy solo

    100% Bucket. He nails it. BBF is an amazing guitarist but he never nailed it live.
  7. Thoughts on Street of Dreams?

    Agree with the general consensus... Studio version not good enough and overproduced. I also think the vocal take is a bit ropey. Rio version fantastic. Ok nevermind - 100% know what you mean.
  8. UYI box>AFD box

    Completely true. But that is due to the benefit of hindsight which none of the mixing guys (both those that mixed timeless albums, and those that didn't) could have known. They were only doing what they felt was right for the status of the market, and their knowledge at the time.
  9. UYI box>AFD box

    Are we criticising an album from the 80's for sounding like an album from the 80's? I know we all love Guns and love to pick apart every single little thing to find fault / something to debate, but expecting them to be able to foresee the future to know how to mix and master their 1987 album so it sounded like an album from the future is asking a bit a think!
  10. Just watched this for first time. Wow. What the hell. It's almost so crazy I kind of feel it might be legit. Care bears... Wtf.
  11. I have been known to frequent the "rock disco" there. That was literally how it was marketed. Was a good night (aka laugh).
  12. GNR jumped the dolphin (finally)

    Dear Guns N Roses, I am a fan. If you want to sell me shit for £1000 then give me 10% off my next purchase, sell me new music. I would then happily pay €260 for some fake tattoos or whatever. That is all.
