  1. Drumming sounds similar to the Chinese Democracy track.
  2. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    DJ was actually good for the band. Brought some much-needed charisma. Besides Axl, the pre-dj band was a bunch of stiffs on stage. He also brought back the era of playing the solos they way they were recorded on the record - no more of the improvised "play it how you want" crap that plagued the 01-06 era. Also, of all the 01-14 guitarists, he's probably the closest in style and tone to Slash. Oh and last thing, Axl's chemistry with DJ was BY FAR the best out of all the band members from 01-14. I feel like Axl considered DJ an actual friend/band member as opposed to a hired-hand like the rest of them. Was he corny and a bit of a poser? Yes. But I think the points I mentioned above out weight the cheese.
  3. Massage Guns

    Haha, if I need buying advice on those I'll just ask my gf.
  4. Massage Guns

    Anyone here have any experience with massage guns? I just started working out again about 2 months ago and am always sore as hell after (which means it's working!). I'm trying to find something other than food and rest to help speed things up. I've tried foam rollers, but they don't really do much for me. Saw this site and am thinking about getting the Ekrin B37: https://massagegunfight.com/massage-gun-buyers-guide/
  5. Gotta say, 0:48-1:13 is one of the coolest sections of any GNR song...even if the rest of the song does suck. That drumming is killer.
  6. WTF Finck Solo

    Axl sounded great on that SCOM. The solo was pretty good, too.
  7. What's the Shadow Company?
  8. Really shows that Brain was GNR's best overall drummer. He has both the groove and the technical prowess needed for the GNR sound. Not saying Steven or Matt weren't right for their time, but just in general, Brain can play any era of GNR and it sounds good. Wish he was still our drummer.
  9. NITL live videos on youtube

    Late as usual...
  10. NITL live videos on youtube

    Cool. Will be fun to see. My predictions: Easy Brownstone Jungle CD DTJ LALD Shadow Wichita NR KOHD Patience Paradise
  11. Definitely agree on axl's singing in one in a million. Hard to choose a top 5 for "cool axl vocals" but that track is certainly up there.
  12. Was thinking about it the other day - if I had to pick my favorite moment or contribution from each member of GNR's entire lineup, what would that list look like? So here you go: AXL - the following from Don't Damn Me. Love the lyrics, love the voice Axl uses, love the melody, love the vocal effects - this part of the song is just great. I know you don't want to hear me crying An I know you don't want to hear me deny That your satisfaction lies in your illusions But your delusions are yours an not mine We take for granted that we know the whole story We judge a book by it's cover and read what we want Between selected lines SLASH - solo in It's So Easy. A short but BADASS solo that matches the energy and attitude of the whole song. Love it. IZZY - Patience DUFF - intro to SCOM STEVEN - Mr. Brownstone MATT - Locomotive - might be some of my favorite drumming in the whole GNR catalog. Love the story about Matt using a little jazz kit on this song, too. DIZZY - Estranged piano solo...I guess GILBY - his live performances...I guess TOMMY - his fills on the second half of TWAT ROBIN - Better JOSH - his drumming during the TWAT solo BUCKETHEAD - TWAT solo CHRIS - Madagascar synth BRAIN - his drumming on Shackler's FRANK - his badass fill at the end of the Bucket solo in IRS BUMBLEFOOT - his outro in CITR DJ - his live performances...I guess FORTUS - his contribution to the riff in the Better chorus MELISSA - her live performances...I guess. (Her backing vocals on Madagascar) Feel free to share yours.
  13. I really like Wichita, too. I especially like how they GNR-ified it once the drums kick in.
  14. What are your top and bottom 3 covers from Axl and/or GNR? The rules are they have to be covers that were never recorded in studio by the band (so no Spaghetti, LALD, etc.). Top 3 1) Free Fallin' 2) Salt of the Earth 3) The Seeker Worst 3 1) Black Hole Sun 2) We Will Rock You 3) Come Together I like the think that back in Axl's prime he could sing any rock genre song and make it better than the original. BHS is obviously him not in his prime, but the other two songs just don't do it for me for some reason. On paper you think they would though. Axl's version of Free Fallin' is peak Axl, though. Doesn't get much better than that.
  15. Just listened to For Those About to Rock from 9/2 and it reminded me that Axl is 100% aware of when he's "got it" and when he doesn't. It's just evident in his body language, his eyes, the way he moves on stage, and of obviously in his voice. When he knows he's on point, he has that extra swagger. To me, this is 100% indication that he's not oblivious to how he sounds when he's all mickey. He knows. I just don't think there's anything he can do about it when he is mickey. It just is what it is. Look at some of the shows from 2006 (Rock Am Ring), 2010 (YCBM, O2 in 2010), and some of the early 2016 stuff. He knows when he has it and when he doesn't.
