  1. Slash and Gilby

    Is it actually unfair that he wasn't listed on Greatest Hits? He didn't play on any of the songs did he? Maybe Sympathy For Devil i guess. Oh and Since I don't have you. sympathy 4 Gilby
  2. Rumors of Izzy & Steven returning?

    Why do people 'expect' so much from GnR? We would all like there to have been more music release since 1991, but maybe there's a virtue in only releasing what someone seems is worthy of it, rather than putting out a shitload of mediocre albums for the sake of it and to fulfill recording contracts.
  3. Live Era

    I always assumed that the inclusion of the "step back" clip is a nod to the Donnington incident, since it seemed to effect them a lot, but that the actual audio is from a different show, a 90s one rather than Donnington.
  4. Funniest lyric

    "Your arms get shorter as your pockets get deeper" is a good one
  5. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Yeah, the intro section is a different riff to the chord progression during the verse when Axl comes in. I think the arrangement would be better if the progression was instrumental for a few bars before the vocal comes in.
  6. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Noticed today that the Axl peg nose thing I'm talking about is really bad on the last verses of Breakdown. He sounds blocked up and the lyrics are unintelligible, the audio needs remixing there..
  7. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    No that's a different riff on the intro. I'm talking about the main riff that kicks in when the drums do too. Axl comes in then as well. Would sound better if he leaves it for a few bars before beginning his verse, imo
  8. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    You could be mine is good instrumentally but I don't like the lyrics and theme much, it's such a bitter and spiteful song really
  9. 26 years ago today- the end

    The odd thing about these final 1993 shows is that despite Slash and others saying the band situation had become untenable and that relations were bad, the shows are really amazing.. Even simple things like them being able to tolerate each other well enough to sit close together on sofas doing acoustic songs with pizzas shows that they were doing a lot better than in 1989..
  10. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Normally I couldn't care less about getting remastered and remixed albums, but a new UYI would be of interest because I happen to think the mixing and mastering on the original is crap. There's something about the tone of the guitars that sucks, it's too polished yet muddy and undefined compared to AFD. Even the punk rawness of LLAS is better than the tone of the rockers on UYI. Axl sounds like he is rambling with a peg over his nose on a lot of the fast rockers on UYI. Plus some of them could be arranged better. Like, the vocals begin soon as the main riff kicks in on Right Next Door To Hell, but they should let the riff breathe for a few bars first before the vocals join in. That's how the songs work on AFD. And don't get me started on November Rain, terrible arrangement. The end part with Slash's 'solo' is just the same 4 bars repeated over and over. Estranged is amazing though, as is Civil War, Locomotive, Coma and the Garden. The rest of the songs are just filler if I'm honest.
  11. Patience cough bullshit

    I always presumed it was a jibe at Izzy, that it's bullshit he left the band and went off and did his own thing.. But hearing that Axl also does this ad lib 'joke' in the 2000s makes me think it could be something else? I guess if we knew the date of which concert it was first heard, that might give an indication as to the meaning...
  12. Funniest lyric

    "Look at the fear Trump's feeding" "I know how you feel inside, I've been there before" "..cause I'd rather be alone [cough] bullshit!" "and now we're happier this wayyy"
  13. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    Lyrics wise, the line in It's So Easy doesn't cause me much alarm, I take it as moody but not actually endorsing non-consensual sexual assault (unlike 'grab em by the pussy,) I do think the lyrics to Attitude are off though, they literally mention physical assault on a woman, so I do think it's weird Duff still sings that. I guess he doesn't make the connection, doesn't see them as literal. Admittedly there may be holes in his moral position but overall I think it's good he is showing more maturity. The lyrics to OIAM caused me most bother, they turned me off the band someehat when I heard them, and reconsidered my fan status. It was only really with the advent of the Internet (including great sites like yours) that I was able to form a better backstory to OIAM and see more of a rationale for it. I did always suspect Axl was not an 'ideological racist' as that didn't fit with the wider picture of him.
  14. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    So they don't have any actual problem with any of the lyrics, or the allegations of improper conduct by the band, they just want him to be honest about it? Sounds very tenuous.
  15. Raz Cue - An Open Letter To Duff McKagan

    Re age of consent in the US, it might be worth noting that Elvis dated a 14 year old, Jerry Lee Lewis married his own 13 year old cousin, etc.. ! If people are getting indignant about Duff's supposed hypocrisy over some lyrics, then why were they ever fans of GnR in the first place? If they think the lyrics are that bad, then they're hypocrites themselves for being fans of the band whilst calling Duff out. Likewise for Raz Cue, he wants to call Duff out for these alleged incidents, and at the same time whitewash Trump's pussy grabbing and declare him 'punk rock' and 'anti-establishment'? What a fuckwitt.
