  1. L' Arc 2010

    L’ARC was the day after Bercy correct? Because I was in Paris for the Bercy show and caught a flight the next morning to go home. And I remember being upset I couldn’t go to L’ARC. Do I have the timeline right?
  2. L' Arc 2010

    So I saw them at the Bearcy arena in Paris the day either before or after L’ARc. Axl was on fire. I hated that version of GNR for many reasons but Axl was excellent. His voice was super on point and powerful.
  3. They are definitely worth seeing. They put on a great show
  4. The middle part of circus Maximus when the guitar kicks in with the piano and the electronic elements is just outstanding. The arrangement is just extremely Axl. If that song is actually 7 wholly molly it’s going to be good.
  5. I encourage everyone to bail out on the Black Crowes because when I went to see them in 2006 I expected a southern rock band and they had morphed into the Black Crowes version of Phish.
  6. The "New Album" Thread

    This why you need a real management team ( see Azoff, Irving) They get bands the right kind of deals that make sense for all parties involved so shit can be released. It’s not a coincidence that he was able to structure a deal to get CD out where everyone got paid. And he wanted Slash and Duff back in 2009 so everyone could get paid crazy money for a reunion tour. This is what big time management is for.
  7. I live in Austin (which is kinda Portland SW) and even we got a show (two actually both ACL weekends) They should have booked a date at that cool soccer stadium y’all have.
  8. That is odd. Portland is a really big market to just skip altogether.
  9. Love the piano breakdown after the coda so much on perhaps. And the Brian May guitar work. State of Grace is a monster song. I’m so curious to know if it’s been expanded or if it’s still 4 min.
  10. Is anyone else really surprised that GNR can sell another entire US stadium run solo? It made sense in 2016 because it had been so long since Axl, Slash, and Duff had performed together. But many of these markets had already been hit in the first stadium run and arena run not that long ago. Even if they announce a new album (God willing) I find it a little perplexing?
  11. Flip Perhaps and SOG and that would be my list. Agreed about nothing and quicksong
  12. We’ve been dancing with a song called hard school we won’t play it nerds keep wanting just leave us alone. They won’t leave us alone.
  13. Why do people get their hopes up that this will be when it all changes. New songs, new sets, new stage set up. Wow they are playing the slowed down version of your crazy (which actually is fucking awesome but still). Nothing is changing. Same set. 4 covers that will eat up time that they could be playing songs that people actually want to hear at a Guns N’ Roses concert- Guns N’ Roses songs. It’s so easy to start. Paradise City to end. A bloated 14 minute version of Rocket Queen and KOHD. No new single. Axl will not be in shape. Slash will be excellent as always. Same shit, Different year. The road goes on forever but the party never ends.
  14. The lithographs are the only good merch. The T-shirts and everything else they sell at concerts suck to the highest degree. But I did receive a pretty bitchin GNR Christmas sweater from their website for Christmas.
  15. The "New Album" Thread

    It just is what it is at this point. Something will happen or it won’t. If you let this band make you crazy that’s on you. They are never going to function like a normal rock band. They have bad management, extremely mediocre merchandise (except for the lithographs which are excellent) and Axl has the final say on everything and it seems like he is difficult (like a lot of great artists) so the best expectation is no expectation.
  16. The "New Album" Thread

    You forgot at least 4 cover songs that no one is interested in hearing.
  17. 1. It’s So Easy 2. Better 3. Jungle 4. Yesterday’s 5. TWAT 6. Civil War 7. Sweet Child 8. You Could be Mine 9. November Rain 10. Night Train 11. Don’t Cry 12. Estranged 13. Patience 14. Paradise City 15. Prostitute
  18. The "New Album" Thread

    Right because that is his band. He has full ownership. He can say whatever he wants.
  19. The "New Album" Thread

    Right but he didn’t announce anything. Saying stuff is recorded is the equivalent to him saying he was talking with Axl. It’s a vague insinuation that stuff is ready. It’s just a matter of getting it out there.
  20. The "New Album" Thread

    Slash is typically “vague” about everything. If anything is planned he’s not going to announce it in an interview with an online guitar magazine. It’s either going to happen or it’s not. But his comments mean absolutely nothing.
  21. They were set to be the Gen-x Rolling Stones. A stadium act with an extensive and varied catalogue. And then it all went to shit.
  22. 2019 was a wacky and eventful year for G’N’F’R and us die hard fans. So I’ve decided to create a best moments of 2019 top 10 list. I’m sure I’m going to forget something important and these are just my personal takes so feel free to chime in. 10. THE NORTH AMERICAN FALL TOUR Yes the performances were up and down but an active GNR is always better than an inactive GNR. And I thoroughly enjoyed the two ACL shows I attended. 9. THE RETURN OF DEAD HORSE It was nice to see GNR start to dip into the Use Your Illusion back catalogue and start working this gem back into the set. 8. THE RETURN OF LOCOMOTIVE I was genuinely disappointed that this was not played at either of the shows I attended. This is arguably the best Use Your Illusion 2 deep cut. 7. THE FIRST MINUTE OF ATLAS The Who like guitar intro, the incredible drum sound, the acoustic guitars, and that moment when Axl’s vocals kick in are so so good. It was genuinely exciting to finally hear this mythological tune. 6. CHECKMATE is JACKIE CHAN is HARD SCHOOL We finally got to hear this classic sounding rocker after getting a sneak peek way back in 2006. And the full version did not disappoint. Great drums (a constant theme of these leaks) great guitar work, and a catchy chorus. The reworked Slash version is going to be a modern GNR classic. 5. THE PIANO BREAKDOWN ON PERHAPS The whole song is so good but that coda and that piano breakdown are just Axl Rose magic. How a song this good has been on the shelf for 20 years is just baffling. 4. THE SECOND HALF OF STATE OF GRACE In my opinion the best of the leaked songs. The first half sounds a little dated but the second half more than makes up for it. It’s why we all love Axl so much. The melt your face off bridge coupled with the power screams is just insanely good. And yet this song still feels like it has more in the tank. It could easily be expanded and turned into a modern GNR proto-epic like Prostitute and TWAT. 3. CD 2000>CD 2008 Some songs still needed work and or completion in 2000 (TWAT, Better, Sorry, Shacklers) but these songs could have easily been replaced with SOG, Perhaps, Atlas, and Hard School and you could make an argument CD would have come out better. The years and the layers did not enhance these songs. The 2000 versions are much more open, have better bass and drum sound, and just feel more visceral. 2. THE ABSURDITY OF THE VILLAGE LEAKS Only in the world of GNR fandom would the Holy Grail for hardcore GNR fans be sitting in a Tom Zutaut storage locker for 20 years. Only in the world of GNR fandom would would Zutaut stop paying for the locker and let it go into default. Only in the world of GNR fandom would the contents be bought storage war style. Only in the world of GNR fandom would the new owner then sell the contents to multiple fans for absurd amounts of money. Only in the world of GNR fandom would the fans hoard the music and back stab each other. Only in the world of GNR fandom would this lead to a fan receiving a lifetime ban from attending GNR concerts. And only in the world of GNR fandom would one rogue fan decide to leak all of the village sessions in high quality so that we could all share in the fun. Thank You to the chairman whoever you are. 1. THE TOTALITY OF THE VILLAGE LEAKS Dozens of instrumentals. The 2000 version of Chinese Democracy. Tracks running the gauntlet from amazing (Perhaps, HS, SOG, Atlas) to interesting (Eye on You, Silkworms, KOHD acoustic) to WTF (Nothing). Fans finally getting to discuss new songs for the first time in over a decade. Confirmation that the vault exists and has some really great stuff in it. All in all a pretty fun year for GNR fans. Hope everyone has a happy new year and I hope that we get some new officially released new music in 2020.
