  1. Can't get enough of that voice. What a monster.
  2. Band is dead at this point tbh. Axl and Slash being together was cool and all, and Axl really kicked it up a notch in 2017 with his performance. What we have at this point is Axl mickeying his way through 3/4 of an ancient set list night after night with Slash by his side - with confirmation that slash will release music with his other band. At this point I hope Axl goes off with Angus, so we can hear him on stuff he is actually passionate about, using what's left of his awesome voice to it's full capabilities.
  3. Wow, really? I spent a few weeks away from this and not reading much about GNR and this is what happened... Pretty much buries any chance of GNR going anywhere exciting for the foreseeable future.
  4. How awesome would this reunion of sorts be if Axl still sounded like this impersonator
  5. Axl did rasp the entirety of Madagascar once or twice last year though
  6. It's a song that needs sharp vocals though. I don't think Axl can perform it properly at this point.
  7. We've been waiting for him to sound like 2010 since 2010 lo. It's not going to happen. The best we can realistically hope for is probably something close to 2016.
  8. The more I listen to the Forum soundboard the more I find to like about Axl's performance. He sounds good all the way up to jungle, jungle included. His usual weaknesses appeat in songs such as TWAT, YCBM, but he adds rasp and reaches for the high notes on the outros. The voice cracks that plagued him in 2017 seem to be almost gone. I don't think his voice is gone anymore, he ended 2017 on a 2016-ish level, with a bit of tiredness in the equation, but rasping stuff such as Paradise City, something he had not done in years. I wonder if he got dragged into rehearsals or recordings with AC/DC late 2017 and that had something to do with his return to form.
  9. Best sound quality Axl/DC recording

    Axl Rose singing Thundestruck is pure Rock'n'Roll heaven
  10. Listen to the full soundboard, Axl ended the tour on a relatively strong note. Pushing himself, sounding good on some of the songs, but with a clearly tired voice. Let's hope his rests now.
  11. 11/17/17 - Las Vegas, NV - T-Mobile Arena

    Solid, solid TIL by Axl.
  12. Tyler sings within his natural voice range 90% of time, deviating from it here and there for impact. His singing voice is pretty close to his talking voice for the most part - it would be similar to Axl using the voice he uses at ISE or Patience for the majority of time in the majority of songs. Even if he used rasp for a few lines at every song, he would probably still have it at this point in his career. Axl`s singing voice is way, way higher than his natural voice range, which is the Patience voice. He spends the majority of songs way up there, and did that using insane amounts of drive for years and years. That's a recipe for disaster. More so than the rasp, using the upper limits of the vocal range with power is what really kills rockers voices: ir screwed Brian, Robert Plant, Bon Jovi, Rob Halford guys like Elton John. It would sooner or later happen to Axl. I'd encourage you to research a Brazilian metal band called Angra (you might know it). They had two vocalists who didn't use much rasp, both would hit ridiculously high notes for years, Andre Matos and Edu Falaschi. Both are in their mid 40's now and their voices are absolutely obliterated. Falaschi actually left the band after a disastrous performance in RIR 2011 (ring any bells? lol) and released a massive, candid statement about no longer being able to sing that high, and how forcing himself to sing at the top of his range was actually starting to ruin his lower range too. He has a new band and stays well within his natural range now. Axl lasted pretty long for someone who does what he does, as agressively as he does. Longer than Brian Johnson, who ruined his vice in 83, longer than Plant too. There is a chance he actually takes very good care of his voice.
  13. Nah, no need to retire. Axl is a capable singer still, imo he is just a bit to proud and hopeful with his ability right now. He needs to drop those songs down a notch and will be able to sing them just fine. There is no way around it, there are two things that are devasting for male singers: singing at the top of their range and using drive. Axl's done both throughout his career, and his voice paid for it. Bon Jovi and Brian Johnson both did that and adapted for years, it's a matter of trading "wow" moments for a consistent, decent performance.
  14. The first half of 2018

    They could just as easily have released a below expectations record and faded away during the period with so many other good bands.
  15. I do hope you are right, but Axl has always come back unprepared after a long break. Literally always. Even in 2006 and 2010 he was not in top form in the first concerts and found his footing later when the tour progresses. I really hope he doesn't do that, but I wouldn't put it past Axl to come back next year after seven months of doing absolutely nothing vocally, and sounding like RIR, 2014 NA leg etc. or worse. I hope he knows what he is doing and is driven to perform at a high level at this point. At his age, it is much easier to maintain strong muscles you already have than it is to achieve them if you let them lose their strength.
