  1. Greta Van Fleet

    Ha, I saw you yesterday on the GVF leak Reddit thread. I just wanted to say that I agree 100% with what you said here and the other post. I love their new album (even though I spoiled myself half of it because of the 5 singles they released). And, BY FAR, Brave New World is the best song. I’d even say it’s the best song they’ve ever done. As I said on Reddit, it reminds me a lot to Metallica. It has that dark vibe, and even the drumming seems to be similar to what you hear on a Metallica “ballad”. Still, there are more good songs. I’d say the only filler song (or atleast the weakest) is Mountain Of The Sun. The other ones are pretty cool and very diverse. I think it’s a great record and it’s super valuable that we are getting something like this in 2018 by a young band. I hope we see more of Josh’s low voice. I find his high voice annoying at times. Too screechy.
  2. I think it’s common knowledge that Gilby was offered a spot at some point. Because he talked about it somewhere. I think Matt was asked to join too. EDIT: Gilby was asked to join as a guest but it didn’t work out. I knew I was right http://theseeker.ca/interview-guns-n-roses-gilby-clarke/27231/ Maybe they wanted to do a super lineup with Steven and Izzy playing the AFD songs, Matt and Gilby playing the UYI songs and Richard and Frank playing the CD songs? It doesn’t make any sense, but what also doesn’t make sense is believing that Izzy or Steven were going to play CD songs... But I’m 99% sure that everyone was asked to join the reunion at one point or another. I think each of them adressed it at least once since 2016/04/01.
  3. This is exactly what I was thinking about. Izzy probably wasn’t offered being there full-time, because Axl wasn’t going to fire Richard. We know how he is, he even offered Ashba to be in the reunion. I tend to criticize Axl a lot for obvious reasons, but without knowing too much about this, I think I’m on the Axl/Slash/Duff side. Izzy’s tweet “to split the loot EQUALLY” says a lot. If he is pretending to earn the same as Axl, when he has said countless times over the years that he doesn’t like touring, I honestly think that he lost his mind. Do i have to remind you that this is probably the biggest tour in the band’s entire history? I don’t know if Izzy was going to handle it... And I’m not trying to say he is not important though. I honestly don’t know about his live playing today (Fortus is a fucking beast TODAY so I get it), but they should have atleast brought him for the AFD songs...
  4. GNR Bootlegs On YouTube

    What are you talking about? All those bootlegs have been around for decades, and they are probably fake. “Uploaded by Guns N’ Roses” more like “Uploaded by someone impersonating Guns N’ Roses”. It’s the same thing that happened with GNR’s Spotify a few years ago. There’s nothing before seen in those videos...
  5. “But there’s been a couple things that we’ve dicked around with at soundchecks” Now that’s interesting... i remember people saying that some rehersals sounded like actual songs, and not just some noodling. I hope someone remembers what I’m saying, it was on a few show threads
  6. I'd say that Argentina and Brazil have the best crowds, but of course there are some places in Europe that have their own thing too. From this year I remember the Firenze crowd was really frenetic I remember that here in Argentina we even chanted the Looney Tunes intro , or the bass notes from Coma. I can share this two awesome videos from when they came here:
  7. One week after the release of the album, I think I've listened to Living The Dream atleast 10 times. Surprisingly, one of the tracks I enjoy the most is "Driving Rain" (which I criticized a lot when it was released as a single). I find it catchy as fuck, and Myles doesn't ruin it with his repetitive choruses. My problem with most of the songs is that they sound like WOF, but they are not bad songs. I probably enjoy it a lot because is new, in one year or two I may not even remember if the songs from WOF are from LTD or vice-versa. - The songs I like the most are The Call Of The Wild, Boulevard Of Broken Hearts, Lost Inside The Girl and Serve You Right. - I still think that Mind Your Manners is trash. Sugar Cane is also very weak IMO. - A lot of moments in the album are ruined by Myles voice (high notes specially), but most of all because of some choruses and lines that he uses, that sound all the same to me. - The Great Pretender is a good concept but I still don't like the song that much. It may be the best song in terms of writing (I don't know much about that TBH), but currently I can't enjoy it. - I still think that the greatest solo of the album is on The One You Loved Is Gone. I think the whole song is very GNR, I keep thinking about it with a soft Axl voice on top. But the solo (as I said the day LTD leaked) just screams Guns, atleast to me. I think it's too early to say if it's better than WOF or AL, because the factor of being new plays a huge role. So I'll answer that in a few months. But it's a great album and it definitely surprised me, the singles that they chose didn't make the album justice.
  8. Wow! Axel sounds great here! Like in the rerecorded vocals of Shadow Of Your Love!
  9. Aids title. Slash’s dad Instagram post is more revealing than the note itself. Can’t say i’m not excited with all of this though. Slash seems very confident that something will happen in the near future (near in GNR’s terms ). I guess we’ll have to wait and see
  10. If Its Just Slash or Duff Who Came Back?

    I can answer you that question very easily: When Duff returned to Guns N' Roses in 2014, that was going to be his first full show since 1993. The first gig was in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I went to see them. They played at this half-empty "stadium": Two years later, they returned with only one change: Slash was back (well, and Melissa joined ). They played two times at this stadium, both nights SOLD OUT. I hope that answers your question!
  11. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2018/09/20/slash-living-dream-guns-n-roses-and-axl-rose-feud/1356821002/ Slash on going solo, new Guns N' Roses and why that Axl Rose feud almost didn't end Slash discusses new album 'Living the Dream' USA TODAY reporter Patrick Ryan sat down with legendary guitarist Slash to discuss his new album, "Living the Dream" and more. No, another Guns N' Roses album is not on the way – at least not yet. "It's something that we would love to do," says lead guitarist Slash, who after two decades of strife with frontman Axl Rose, reunited with the group in 2016 for an ongoing reunion tour. "We just need to come together and start working that out, so it could definitely happen." In the meantime, the 53-year-old rocker, whose real name is Saul Hudson, is gearing up for the release of "Living the Dream," out Friday, his third album with singer-songwriter Myles Kennedy and band The Conspirators. Largely written in 2014 and 2015 prior to the GNR reunion, and recorded this past spring, the album is "leaner" and "more uptempo," he says, than his previous studio effort, "World on Fire," which was "more densely populated with random riffs and had a lot going on." ——————— Slash sat down with USA TODAY for a wide-ranging chat about the new music, the current state of mainstream rock, and the phone call that ended his feud with Rose. Question: What's the significance of the title, "Living the Dream?" Slash: It was just a tongue-in-cheek remark about domestic and global politics, but people have been looking into it as being something about what it is that I do. Which it applies, but that's not where it came from. Q: Was any of the new music inspired by what's going on in the news? Slash: This one is actually less political than the last one. It's more about personal experiences for Myles and a couple shared experiences, but not so much politics. But I did have to say something, so I titled the record the way I did. Q: "Civil War" is arguably GNR's most political song. What do you remember about writing and recording that with Axl? Slash: That was something I just came up with on acoustic and an idea that Axl had, and the two just came together. It’ll be interesting to see what's on the next Guns N' Roses record if we get around to doing that. I'm not wanting to be a political advocate myself, but it'd be interesting to see what Axl comes up with. He definitely is more outspoken in that area. Q: For the first time this past year, R&B/hip-hop overtook rock as the most popular genre in terms of total consumption. How do you feel about the state of the genre? Slash: Rock isn't mainstream anymore, and in some ways, I like that. It harks back to when rock 'n' roll was more of an underground concept, when people were speaking about things that they weren't necessarily comfortable saying in the mainstream arena. As far as hip-hop is concerned, it's become so generic at this point. It's definitely taken on a very top-40 thing. Q: Who are some of your favorite rock acts right now? Slash: I love Foo Fighters. My favorite band consistently has been Queens of the Stone Age because they always put out cool, interesting records. But I still listen to a lot of old stuff because the rock 'n' roll that turned me on as a kid, not too much of it exists. Q: I understand that it was Axl who reached out to you a few years ago, after a couple decades of not speaking. Was that cathartic? Slash: It was nice that it happened. I don't know if I would have had the wherewithal to call him, just because I'm introverted and it might have been hard for me. Not during that initial phone call, but after that, it was really good to be able to get rid of some of the negative baggage that we'd been carrying around for a long time. It'd been 20 years of not talking and letting this bad blood continue to be perpetuated by the media. It turned into something way bigger than what was really going on, so it was good to get past that.

  12. Final thoughts on NITL tour

    What mystic are you referring to? Because GNR in 2014 (and for a few years at that time) was playing half-empty casinos with a fat-Elvis Axl butchering November Rain on a flying piano. Plus Ashba was a joke during those years. I’m a huge fan of NuGNR but I believe the reunion happened at the right time( besides 2006 or 2010 obviously). The band was going nowhere and the members (Tommy and Ron specially) were like prisoners and didn’t want to be there anymore. If I had to choose between the 2014 band (and playing empty arenas) or having Duff and Slash to do a huge stadium world tour, I’d choose the later. The only thing I miss about nuGNR is that all this corporate BS and all the casual fans wasn’t around. It was like a small circle of hardcore fans and nothing else. Plus the band was much more intimate and friendly to the fans. But leaving that aside, we weren’t getting new music either. So I’d pick the reunion by far. I think GNR lost its “mystic” the day they played Rock in Rio IV.
  13. The ballad solo just SCREAMS Guns! One of the highlights of the album so far. For now, i’d say that if you didn’t like the singles, then the album is going to surprise you. And if you did like them, then you’ll probably love it.
  14. Serve You Right is fucking badass! So far, it seems like the singles didn’t help with the promotion. Will post a full review when I’m done listening to the whole thing.
