  1. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Then Katyaani is more a forum regular than I am, because I haven’t seen it before. Is that Sasha. She does look stunning!
  2. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Have you seen it? Katyaani posted it on tumblr. EDIT Katyaani also posted this „lost interview“ with Slash that has got discussed somewhere in this forum.

    Sorry @Georgina Arriaga, I didn’t like the song. Have seen the clip before. I do like that they use the song for a current film but musically/vocally... I don’t know. Akso the scene looks really cheesy to me.
  4. Thanks so much for your summary @killuridols! I really appreciate it! It was just right for me. Also listened to the podcast with Jack lue and enjoyed that.
  5. Could you sum up the interesting bits please?

    Yeah, Sebastian Kruger. His paintings are huge and he paints celebrities in photorealistic. That looks stunning. Sometimes he manages to capture a piece of the person‘s personality, that’s when his pictures become really interesting. For the most part I think his work gets old quickly. I like one portrait he did of Michael Jackson and one other of Keith. The pic with Izzy at the exhibition must be around 2008. I love how Izzy is showing the inside of the book with Kruger’s signature and Izzy’s caricature. He must like it.

    They wanna rub his belly? WHYYY? To see if it wiggles?
  8. Wacky World of The Ominous Izzy Stradlin and NO! Gang

    Yeah right, Axl. Sorry, don’t mean to be rude but there is no single facial feature that resembles Axl. Also I think on twitter they already found out it is Sami from Hanoi Rocks.

    Best thing to go to sleep to! Good night, dearie! Funny, I’m just heading to my first coffee. The world really is round!

    @Dusty Bone Hey there and welcome to the thread!! Sorry it is a bit deserted nowadays...

    The thread keeps notifying me that @killuridols @Blackstar and @Georgina Arriaga have posted „just now“. THen I go and only see the posts from yesterday. What game are you playing with me, girls. Secret messages so Tori cannot see???? Only kidding, the forum keeps doing funny things with my notifications. So, anyway. Glad for all those cover versions you people dug out. The anomaly thing about GnR I totally get. This is why I liked them. Up to this day I don’t like any hair metal bands, never did. I wasn’t into that at all. GnR was different, they sounded different, so musically varied, even on Appetite. Nobody had so much diverse grooves and swings and so mean atmosphere. Ah, and @Blackstar, of course I meant Patti Smith! I love her! I just suck on saying what genre is what band (or vica versa?). To me she is rock-ish but not Rock n Roll? I don’t really know what genre she is though. I probably have no clue what I’m talking about.

    So we’ve got it now, haven’t we? Voice melody and Slash’s guitar being too complex (in lack of a better word), lyrics being to mysoginist and ballads being to ballads. I guess nowadays most sane male artists don’t want to sing a misogynist cock rock song like „So easy“ etc. So it’s their artistic complexity in music and their hate-lyrics as well as the reputation of the band as being „divas“ etc. Kind of answers it all, doesn’t it?
  14. GNR Women's Discussion - Part 2

    Yes to both of you. Their addictions, their egos, their mental health, bad management decisions - all of it was a factor to destroy that band. I wasn’t blaming only Axl at all nor do I think so. I was referring to him mostly because I thought the standing of GnR in the public eye would/could be a reason why they don’t get covered. Nope.Not at all. Can't stand most of those mentioned above (like some Bruno Mars) but you’re right. Rock is dead and that’s why it doesn’t get covered. I just wanna say Patty Smith and Tori Amos are not Rock either. Probably Patty Smith is, but softer. Anyway, they made brilliant covers. This is one thing I haven’t thought about! And I think this is key. Those thousands of registers Axl could pull are amazing, especially the high notes, but also lower registers. Still it doesn’t answer why Patience didn’t get covered, it is a lower register. I guess the last part of the song is again pretty difficult to sing. Axl had this enormous voice! Gosh, how much I loved that voice!!! I’m sorry to say I don’t like all those girly soft versions of GnR songs, I also don’t think the lyrics give it away. Maybe SCOM but it just doesn’t fit. So. I couldn’t even answer who I wanted to do a cover version of a GnR song. Who is there? Maybe Greta van Fleet?
