  1. For solo careers, Izzy and Slash is pretty much all I listen too. Izzy has had the best output of solo material of any GNR member in my opinion. Slash is a close second. My 3 favorite Izzy albums are 117 Degrees, Like A Dog, and Smoke. For Slash my 3 favorites are It’s Five o Clock Somehwere, Apocalyptic Love, and World on Fire.

    Glad I saw them when I did (August 2016). Axl’s voice is terrible and the band looks bored and uninspired. I knew that this incarnation of GNR would eventually run its course and lose its appeal. Only having 3 original members and playing the same setlist for over 2 years straight has gotten old. They’ll only be able to continue if they release new music or get Izzy and Steven back in the band. Unfortunately, neither are likely to happen.
  3. Great interview! Always been a big fan of Hanoi Rocks and Michael's solo albums.
  4. Favorite Slash albums

    The Last Fight and For a Brother are the only Libertad songs I like. The rest is mediocre in my opinion. It’s too poppy and most of the songs have very cheesy lyrics. Mary Mary, She Mine, Let it Roll, and Just Sixteen are prime examples.
  5. Favorite Slash albums

    1- Contraband 2- World on Fire 3- Apocalyptic Love 4- It’s 5 o Clock Somewhere 5- Slash 6- Ain’t Life Grand 7- Living the Dream 8- Libertad
  6. Living the Dream is by far the weakest album of the three. The songs are just ok and several of them resemble songs from Slash’s past or songs by other artists. First off, the title Mind Your Manners has already been taken by another very famous band in recent years (Pearl Jam), the bridge in Driving Rain is exactly like Standing In the Sun, Read Between the Lines is very similar to Pills Demons Etc by Velvet Revolver, and the intro to Blvd of Broken Hearts sounds a lot like Eye of the Tiger. I don’t know if Slash and company just got lazy or if they’re starting to run out of ideas, maybe a combination of both. Overall, very disappointing album.
  7. I’ll believe it when I see it. Until then, not getting my hopes up. I’ve learned not to do that with this band.
  8. Great show in a cool little venue. I live in the Seattle area and my brother lives in SLC so I planned a little vacation to come down here to visit him and see Slash in the same trip since he doesn’t have any Seattle shows announced. In regards to the show, the one thing that really surprised me and is worth noting is how low of a volume they played at. Definitely the quietest rock show I’ve ever been too. My brother and I were able to talk to each other during the show without having to scream, which is usually the case. But all in all it was a fantastic show. Those guys are all killer players and are really tight as a unit. This was the second time I’ve seen the Conspirators and I enjoyed tonight a lot more mainly because of the setlist. I’m glad they only played one GNR song (Rocket Queen). Quite frankly, I’m very tired of the Guns material and I’m much more into Slash’s solo stuff because it’s not old and overplayed. The songs from the new album are all great. Call Of the Wild is probably my favorite. Can’t wait for the rest of the album to come out. Thought I’d give you all a little review of the show. Cheers!
  9. No chance. The NFL demands that the tracks are pre-recorded so there’s a smaller chance of technical difficulties. No way GNR would agree to mime to a pre-recorded track.
  10. I’ll believe it when I see it. Until then I’m not getting my hopes up
  11. Absolutely ridiculous. This needs to stop.
  12. I’m much more a fan of Steven than Axl, but I’ll still call a spade a spade, Steven centering his entire career around a 30 year old album that he got no writing credits for is ridiculous. His act of playing Appetite with a revolving door of hacks has worn thin.
  13. Do people still like Rockers?

    I'm right there with ya. Straight ahead, bare bones rock n roll has always been what I gravitate towards. All the early punk bands like the NY Dolls, Dead Boys, Dictators, Hanoi Rocks, MC5, Stooges, etc are all at the top of my list. I love the energy and simplicity of that music. Appetite had that same spirit and attitude. Nowadays, if I listen to GNR, I mainly listen to Appetite and the rockers from UYI like Right Next Door to Hell, Perfect Crime, and Garden of Eden. I haven't listened to November Rain, Estranged, and Breakdown in a long time.
  14. Very well said. Steven has been milking the fact that he was the original GNR drummer since the day he got kicked out and he's based his entire career around one album. To be honest, it's pathetic. He needs to move on, stop living in the past, and make a new name for himself. Him playing Appetite with a bunch of hacks has become laughable.
  15. How long will this band last? I'll give it two months tops. Not a fan of the singer. Tries too hard to sound like Axl and his vocal tone is very whiny.
