  1. “Third party” I mean okay do we get one guess on who they are ?
  2. I’m listening to the podcast now and Marc canter has an amazing memory.
  3. I don't know if I like yesterday's better than SCOM as a song but yesterday's in the year 2003 help me in a way I didnt expect it to. It's got surprising deep lyrics and it's an underrated song.
  4. So when I heard the news about SCOM getting 1 billion views(that's an insane number btw) but when did the welcome to the videos version become what is labelled on YouTube as an alternative version ?
  5. Is GNR the most underrated band ever?

    I never said sweet child o mine was underrated if you'd be kind enough to read what I actually posted. I said it was overplayed and I think I'm not alone in that view point. I, like all of us here are clearly huge GNR fans but how many here could go without hearing SCOM for a while ?
  6. Is GNR the most underrated band ever?

    Underrated ? I wouldn't say the band are neither underrated nor overrated(some songs are overplayed though) but given the promise they had for the release of AFD the certainly didn't reach their full potential for a number of reasons, and it's not a case of blaming one person either. The big three were still part of the band on the UYI era and whether knowingly or not contributed to the break up of the band.
  7. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    I see people are mentioned the perfect crime documentary which from the hits I've seen including the st Louis riot stuff is really. The question is do we know how much footage was actually recorded at the time, and how much is still surviving ? Does Robert John own the footage or is it axl ? I'd love to see it in full but given that some stuff might not be suitable for release for a variety of reasons I'll take the most complete version. I know axl has said that UYI sounds like a band dying, but the footage from that tour doesn't reflect that or that the band was fractured and on the bring of breaking up.
  8. Funniest lyric

    I hate that lyric from KOHD. IMO Its the worst part of any studio version of any song GNR ever recorded. It adds nothing and takes away from otherwise is a good cover version of the song.
  9. And while duff is a parter any decision the band made had to have the agreement of both axl and slash and duff is the tiebreak.
  10. I got a copy of the partnership agreement that was signed in 1992 as it came up during a lawsuit in 2004 between the guys in the former partnership. The signing over of the name doesn't read as nefarious as some would have has us believe. So if the old partnership was just reactivated and it wasn't changed then slash and duff and axl are the decision makers in GNR again.
  11. Well dizzys strategy since 1990 of not rocking the boat seems to have worked well.
  12. So that he can get his classic sound on whatever he is allegedly doing tomorrow(LA time) maybe ? BTW your avatar pic is creepy as fuck.
  13. Favourite cover song would be either live and let die(NITL era) and knocking on heavens door (UYI era live). The heavens door album version has my least favourite part of any GNR song cover or original. That phone part sounds completely out of place.
  14. Yes it was. DJ Ashba actually came out the back of the arena to talk to the fans who had gathered there after the gig. I mean he seemed a nice guy in fairness but them going off stage wasn't his fault. He said bottles full of piss were been thrown at the stage which probably wasn't nice but how they would actually know that I'm not sure but it what he said.
  15. I've seen GNR three times all in Ireland. The 2010 concert started out fine but some people from the left hand side of the venue started throwing bottles near and on the stage. Axl stopped the show and said very clearly that if one more thing was thrown onto the stage they'd leave. And well there was stuff thrown and he did. Someone from the promoters came onstage and asked us to be patient as they were trying to get axl to come back on stage. I think Phil lynots mother was back stage that night(at least that was the rumour I heard)He did eventually come back on and stood by the drum riser for the rest of the show and actually sounded good vocally because he wasn't running around. 2012 he'd fallen in Russia the concert before and so wasn't that late if I remember rightly and wasn't running around and moving and to axl and the bands credit they gave a great performance and got a standing ovation from the top deck after November rain. And slane with slash and duff back in the band needs no more explanation really.
