  1. Some of the Axl speak leaves room for that understanding, but imo when Axl says he was told to "sing what I was told or fuck off" it seems to be referring to finished lyrics and melody?
  2. Im still unclear on how Slash brought material to Axl and Slash said not to make any changes. Does this mean that the Snakepit songs that were ostensibly written for Guns already had Dover collaborating on lyrics and vocals? Because Dover wrote or cowrote all the lyrics and melody on 5 o'clock somewhere. If Slash had written earlier drafts on his own and wasnt willing to let Axl tinker with lyrics and melody why on Earth would he let Dover? And Dover is said to have written 100% of Beggars lyric and melody - a track that Duff has a writing credit on that we have video of them working on on UYI tour. What are the complete tracks Slash brought forward for Axl to simply preform and who wrote them and when? And if Dover was involved did Axl know who wrote it?
  3. If you could hear only one....

    The Kirk Hammet cell phone with all his awesome riffs that he lost early in Hardwired... To Self Destruct sessions But seriously the 94 and 96 GnR sessions released as another sprawling album. And CDII.
  4. The Home Cookin' Thread W/ Recipes

    Homemade mouth wash (if removed due to maybe wrong section I will understand) - Peppermint tincture - Ground salt (could use high mineral like mountain or sea salt, but I doubt it would absorb, so I use a sugar-free table salt) - Warm tap water Make you own tincture. Have a jar of salt and tincture bottle in vanity, on sink, etc. After brushing or after consuming acidic drink, pour a bit of salt into cup, add some warm tap water. Gently swirl around to mix. Add a little splash of peppermint tincture and use as regular mouth wash. Why do this, soon? Main reason anyone would consider: to not use a product that has corrosive ingredients leaching toxins from plastic bottle like store bought types. Also saves money - peppermint grows as a weed and even with low sun can grow year round indoors. I found industrial mouth wash irritated my throat. Less waste and carbon foot print. As a bonus, my gums are looking and feeling really great - much more so then with normal mouth wash. Best part: use peppermint tincture to make your own chocolate-peppermint patties!!!!!
  5. The whining thread

    hahahaha! Spot on. Exactly like a Larry type of incident. I pleaded and insisted less as is my nature, but a more Larry approach may have actually benefited me
  6. The whining thread

    Karma happened fast for teasing archtop while she's sick: I put out my laundry bag for pick up by the service. Then I realized I was out of boxers. The worker walked in right as I was removing 'dirty' underwear from the bag. I dont mind telling y'all as I was merely going to wear them to walk up the block for a new package of boxers. I did not have the chance to explain this to them though!

    Careful what you wish for, lol. But seriously I hope you feel better soon!
  8. The Hangover/I'm an Alcoholic Thread

    When you've enjoyed the perfect amount of beer so that when Lunatic Fringe comes on the radio you are genuinely pleased. Maybe you give a fist pump. It's just so good when it happens right.
  9. MYGNRFORUM Through the Years Daily Song Challenge

    Its definitely a stand out track from CD. It nice to start off with a positive comment as I am bracing myself for some blow back on this one Your deodorant commercial song reminded me of those dark days before NITL
  10. What happened to GNR?

    Time went by and it became a joke... and then it got kinda alright again
  11. Columbia 92' sounds like a riot to me. In Venezuela in 92' there was political turmoil on the eve of a military coup. Various stories indicate that the military and or police, knowing GNRs reputation, feared a riot and forced them on at gun point. The next day as the band attempted to leave, only half could get out before having people and property detained. (one story goes that the military chased the plane down the run way). So then the following show in Columbia had to be postponed and there were other complications. Due to delays, there is said to be some fights, arrests and torched automobiles. "As the police attempted to disperse the disappointed fans, scuffles broke out, a few people were injured, and some nearby cars and property were damaged before order was restored by the use of tear-gas. Against this background, and with only two-thirds of the sound system operational, GN'R took the stage at 10.30pm with 'Welcome To The Jungle'" Part of the tale is told here: Wednesday, NOVEMBER 25 POLIEDRO, CARACAS, Venezuela. In the absence of a suitable venue, the show is played outside one (!) in a parking lot in front of 45,000. The biggest show ever staged in Venezuela. Thursday, NOVEMBER 26 THE 80-PERSON party leaves Venezuela in the evening - just hours before the country was thrown into turmoil by an air-based military coup. In the ensuing chaos, only one of the band's cargo planes is able to take off, leaving over half of their equipment and several crew members stranded. Friday, NOVEMBER 27 GN'R ARRIVE in Colombia for two scheduled shows at El Campin Stadium in Bogota. But without so much equipment, these shows are immediately in jeopardy. After touchdown in the early hours of the morning they research ways to either bring in new equipment from North America, or get their incarcerated cargo released from Venezuela. Neither is possible in time to set up for Saturday's show, so Saturday tickets are made valid for Sunday and the two gigs are rolled into one. GN'R originally offered to reschedule and play a second show on Monday, but local promoters believed that those who had travelled long distances would not be able to stay an extra two days. Saturday, NOVEMBER 28 WITH MANY fans already camping outside the 60,000 capacity stadium, the wait for gear to arrive from Venezuela ended around 7pm when the first shipment was delivered. As the crew battled to complete the load-in time for the following night's show, a torrential downpour slowed their progress. At 10.15pm, the six tonne stage roof, complete with a lighting rig, crashed to the ground. Hearing the steel buckle, the stagehands had fled and none was hurt. An inspection revealed that the locally supplied structure had been unable to support the additional weight of the rainwater gathered on the roof. With no time to build another roof, the set was redesigned so that all lights the fall was repositioned on the stage's side walls, with the band having to perform under the sky and exposed to the elements Sunday, NOVEMBER 29 THE MASSING crowds were let in early to avoid clashes with the armed police. At lunchtime, a cloudburst damaged more equipment despite the crew's efforts to protect it. As the day went on, tickets were still on sale. The Columbian promoters had been unable to give the band either accurate ticket sales for either of the originally planned gig, or of returns from the canceled Saturday show. As a result, by 10pm, the stadium was full - with hundreds of ticket holders locked out. As the police attempted to disperse the disappointed fans, scuffles broke out, a few people were injured, and some nearby cars and property were damaged before order was restored by the use of tear-gas. Against this background, and with only two-thirds of the sound system operational, GN'R took the stage at 10.30pm with 'Welcome To The Jungle'. 90 minutes later, Axl's ballad 'November Rain' ironically heralded another cloudburst. With no roof to protect the stage, it and the equipment was beneath half-an-inch of water within minutes. The band completed the song but Axl pulled a translator on stage to tell the crowd that they would need to take a short brake to dry and make safe all the electrical equipment. 15 minutes later, still in pouring rain, Guns were back on the waterlogged stage finishing the set with 'Don't Cry' and 'Paradise City'. The audience, whose enthusiasm remained undampened by the weather throughout, bid them an ecstatic farewell as the band dashed drenched - and relieved - to the waiting vans http://gunsnroses.com.pl/forum/guns-n39-roses/guns-n'-roses-tour-diary-1991-1993/
  12. Reminds me how Slashs Snakepit and Duff solo left Geffen around the same time. iirc Duff was dropped and Slash and Geffen parted ways (because Slash didnt like the way the lable was servicing the album). Beautiful Disease and Aint Life Grand are not my favourite Guns related albums but that doesnt mean they arent good. I wonder if Geffen didnt value those albums due to perceived quality, or if they didnt want any Guns spin offs diluting the brand? Or maybe Axl made demands for their exit?
  13. Slash's best solos?

    Very cool! Really enjoyed that. All of his solos are incredible, but imo Last Fight isn't a standout. If you do another Id vote for: - The second solo in Back and Forth Again from Its Five O'clock Somewhere - Sucker Train Blues from Contraband - Dont Damn Me
