  1. Coma and Jungle Demos

    There was one on YouTube for a while. No idea if it’s still there or where to find it if it’s not
  2. The stage was wet apparently. After Axl got up he started wiping the floor with a rag. Called it an “occupational hazard”
  3. Just saw the Axl impersonator walking around the venue. Had to do a double take lol
  4. Guns N’ Roses says ‘Don’t Cry,’ but if you missed their Salt Lake City show, you should disregard that advice It would be easy to call Guns N’ Roses’ appearance Tuesday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City a no-frills show — except for, you know, the multiple video screens, the pyro, the show-ending confetti … the fact that they employ two keyboardists. So, all right then, it wasn’t as austere as a nunnery. It is rock ’n’ roll, after all. And pure rock ’n’ roll was the point in this latest installment of GNR’s now-years-long “Not in This Lifetime Tour” — a show that aims to show all those accoutrements were, if not wholly unnecessary, at least relegated to the periphery. A packed house showed up to see an incendiary rock band, and for 2 hours and 35 minutes, that is exactly what they got. From the moment the lights went dark and the band’s introductory video began to play on the giant screen behind the stage, the atmosphere was electric. It went up a few notches still when Slash, Duff McKagan, and the rest of the band emerged onstage and launched into the opening notes of the “Appetite for Destruction” favorite “It’s So Easy.” The “Appetite”-heavy (seven songs) and “Chinese Democracy”-light (just two) setlist ensured that energy was mostly sustained throughout the night. The opening half of the set was particularly frenetic. “It’s So Easy,” “Mr. Brownstone,” and “Welcome to the Jungle” were among the first songs of the evening. And “Use Your Illusions” deep cut “Double Talkin’ Jive” was an early opportunity to showcase the band members’ musicianship, opening as it did with an extended instrumental intro. It was simultaneously thrilling and jarring to hear Axl Rose cover “Slither,” the hit track Slash and McKagan recorded with vocalist Scott Weiland in the band Velvet Revolver, but the moment that the bassist started playing the pulsating, slow-burning opening riff, the audience howled in both recognition and appreciation.

Speaking of howling, Rose proved he can still hit the high notes, but also demonstrated that his voice has lost much of the trademark sandpaper grit that used to define it. The rough-edged texture was front and center for the cover of Wings’ “Live and Let Die,” but was largely — and conspicuously — absent by the time a grand piano was wheeled to center stage as he uncorked “November Rain.” There were a few minor quibbles to be had if you were so inclined — notably an overstuffed collection of cover tunes. Was the inclusion of “Wichita Lineman” really preferable to just playing “Don’t Cry,” in the end? Or perhaps “You’re Crazy” (the acoustic version, of course)? Nope. Meanwhile, another standard GNR cover, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” seemed to drag on needlessly after each choral refrain. Meanwhile, the one-two punch of UYI tracks “Dead Horse” and “Coma” didn’t seem to land with much impact for the crowd. And as a GNR fan, it would have been cool to hear the likes of ”Used to Love Her,” “Out Ta Get Me,” “Pretty Tied Up,” or “Don’t Damn Me,” even if you knew going in that those haven’t been in the rotation for a minute. There were certainly sufficient highlights to atone for whatever minimal disappointments the evening held, though. The inclusion of “Shadow of Your Love” — an unused ’80s demo the band reworked and released for a special AFD box set — was a straightforward head-banger. Duff handling lead vocals on the merger of Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory” and the Misfits’ “Attitude” was a nice throwback. And the piano-driven “Estranged” was, as usual, a sonic delight. Beyond that, well, if “Rocket Queen,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” the main set-closing “Nightrain,” and the encore-concluding “Paradise City” didn’t get you out of your seat, you may just be beyond hope. Rose’s interactions with the crowd were minimal, though generally amusing for their sharp-tongued nature. After introducing the band — rattling off guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese, and McKagan — he paused and, to great effect, deadpanned rhetorically, “That’s it, right? … Oh, did I forget someone?” (Photo courtesy of Katarina Benzova) Rock band Guns N' Roses performed at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019 as part of their "Not in This Lifetime Tour." Slash was eventually introduced, a sweeping, crescendoing performance of the “Love Theme” from “The Godfather” was unleashed, and Rose resumed his custom of retreating to the drum riser and shimmying to the beat while not singing, apparently eager to let his bandmates have every opportunity to shine in the spotlight. And the show rolled on — no drama, no angst, no muss, no fuss. Because in 1992, maybe rock ’n’ roll entailed going on hours late and leaving the stage after four songs if some minute distraction proved too perturbing to carry on. But in 2019, starting on time, keeping it going for 150-ish minutes, and mostly killing it in between proved a remarkable redefinition.
  5. It’s Izzy saying “Saul” in a high pitched voice
  6. I’ll be at this one. Keeping my fingers crossed they play Hard School lol
  7. My girlfriend just finished this amazing painting as a gift to me and I had to share it. Entirely free handed on a massive canvas. I’m still in awe
  8. If the CDs were really sold at a public auction than it is 100% legal to own the physical discs, the only crime here is the illegal distribution of the files on the disc. The only reason I think they’re not taking legal action against Rick is that they would have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt in court, that Rick personally distributed the files on the discs. TB does not have a case, that’s why they went with a ban because that’s really all they can do
  9. With all the protests against the Chinese government in Hong Kong and demands for democracy it’s really making me look at the song Chinese Democracy in a new light. This was a song that I never really paid much attention to the lyrics really, but I kinda feel like this song more relevant today than it’s ever been. Anyone else looking at this song in a new light?
  10. As soon as I turn off the stream FML any videos of Locomotive??
  11. I think it's the east half of the country that uses W, and the west half uses K
  12. 10/04/19 - Austin, TX - Austin City Limits

    Sorry is under Out Ta Get Me. I think that one might be So Fine
  13. The first change is YCBM coming in after L&LD, which hasn't happened yet
