  1. Yeah. Axl singing the brian songs sends shivers down my spine. What he does is not human, it's absolutely ridiculous. If he is done, he probably lasted longer than most singers would doing what he does. I wouldn't discard a comeback though.
  2. Amazing. Really highlights how far he has fallen. I can imagine him absolutely mickeying this in terrible fashion if he attempted it today. Those AC/DC videos showcase him in absolute beast mode. I truly hope Axl has another rebirth of sorts in him (a realistic one, bringing close to 2016 levels). I do fear however that this is it. His mid range has been problematic for years, and those heights he reached back in 2016, together with the neverending schedule and whatever his preparation routines (or lack of) are finished frying his awesome upper ranges. He still has his awesome lower voice to work with though, and that is probably never going away.
  3. Yeah, he was struggling with that voice earlier this year. He seemed to recover faster than usual from the first gig (not that he sounds great now, but he did evolve). Maybe he's been doing something or there's something in the works with AC/DC
  4. Unusual. It sounds less mickeyish than I expected, but it really seems like he is going a long way to avoid using rasp. It's a bit deeper than his usual falsetto and very clean for WTTJ, a song where he usually brings out a bit of rasp. Odd, and it indicates he is aware of issues.
  5. this is the last Axl/DC show. Sounds good to me.
  6. Doing well is something he is very far from. It's painful to listen to.
  7. Something seriously has to be done. His performances have reached an unacceptable level. It's cringe from start to finish. I've seen amateur karaoke dudes perform those "seriously demanding" GNR song. Hell, I'm one of those, had a band in high school and currently can perform a better (albeit bad) rendition of YCBM. It is simply terrible. Sad that it came to this. In 2016 we had hints of old Axl coming back all over the shows. It's just too much of a coincidence that he sounded good on GNR songs right when he was working his ass off for AC/DC.
  8. That's utterly terrible. And this song was really one of the last to become terrible. It used to be a high point even in bad shows. Painful to listen to.
  9. Axl's voice has been absolutely fried for months now. Apparently he is not very concerned about doing something about ti (or maybe is unable to). It absolutely kills any enjoyment for me. Those performances are impossible to listen to.
  10. That's my impression too. He is clearly letting Axl know he is up for that.
  11. Slash Q1043 interview

    Maybe he was wrong on his assessment of his ability to use that technique regularly without causing damage. I know there is this whole "Axl is lazy" belief going around, but his downfall begun right after the US leg with AC/DC. In this last leg of the tour, there were definitively signs of damage.
  12. Steven is way off the curve. Most rock singers become a shell of themselves as they age. Bon Jovi, Paul Stanley, the much maligned Vince Neil. Others just tune their stuff way down and sing conservatively such as Brian Johnson and Robert Plant. The fact that Steven sings within his natural voice range (just listen to him talking) tremendously helps his longevity. As bad as Axl sounds sometimes compared to his prime, he is quite in the middle of the pack. Hasn't completely lost it, still has something special, but lacks consistency and has bad moments. I think he would benefit from a more conservative approach, but he will never be like Steven or like he was in 2010.
  13. What is Axl up to these days?

    I'd never bash a celebrity for being angered or impatient sometimes when crowded. It can be really annoying. I wouldn't bash Axl, particularly, as he never pretended to enjoy this part of being a public person. He is not a person who craves fame and really tends to avoid exposition at most times. When he does have interactions with fans they are mostly genuine, such as when he wandered around Europe while on the AC/DC tour, the China Exchange stuff, videos of him chatting with fans at bars etc. No human being will be in the mood for that all the atime, at least Axl is coherent and doesn't milk interactions for money.
  14. Where are you Axl Rose?

    Axl/DC was amazing, but it was what it should be, really. He filled in, absolutely kicked ass, and that's it. As much as Bon is missed, it was with Brian that AC/DC reached its peak, and if he is able to tour, there is absolutely no reason to have Axl there. Brian is AC/DC. Axl has a massive band to front. Also, I doubt that this current version of Axl could replicate those 2016 performances. That might even have played a part in all this.
  15. Well, the post is fairly recent. If they are behind it, though, it's a fandom ending event for me.
