  1. You have to be vague in this era of piracy. If Slash says Guns N' Roses have finished songs for a new record, somehow those songs will make their way online, and everyone gets a free download of new Guns N' Roses songs. Seems like a few musical acts have recently been successful at "dropping" a new record online, without any advanced notice. Thus, no one had the chance to steal the music ahead of time. If I'm someone in the band or management plotting a release strategy of new music, that's how I go about it. Just say it's been discussed, the guys want to do it, then just drop something out of the blue when no one is suspecting it.
  2. Slash to Appear on Jimmy Kimmel (Sep 12)

    Can't stand Kimmel's political views. Slash would be well advised not to be lured into any political talk.
  3. Slash Made $45M in 2017 According to Ex-Wife

    *phone ringing* "Hello?" "Hey Ax, it's Slash! Hey, I'm ready to do a new record when you are! Or tour! Let's do another two year tour!" "Perla fucked you over good, didn't she?" "............something like that"
  4. What are your opinions on the UYI albums?

    There is some sub-par material on both of the Illusion records. If you take that material out, and merge the great songs onto one disc, you have a record that's every bit as good as Appetite For Destruction. My one disc Use Your Illusion record would be: November Rain, Coma, Double Talkin' Jive, You Could Be Mine, Civil War, 14 Years, Don't Cry (Original), Dust N' Bones, Locomotive, Right Next Door To Hell, Breakdown, Yesterdays, and Estranged.
  5. Perhaps if there's new music in the can, then hackers uncover it online. Then everyone's stealing the new Guns N' Roses album, instead of buying it. Slash has been saying new Guns music is a possibility, and that's probably the best thing he can say. If he were to say a record is done, the odds of keeping it from leaking in this day and age are slim. Better for himself, and the band, to have all the bases covered with the press/media.
  6. I'm by no means wealthy, but I am shrewd with how I spend my money. I looked at having one of the Locked N' Loaded sets as something I earned the right to purchase. I'll do it again if/when a Use Your Illusion set is produced.
  7. AFD Locked & Loaded Discounts Begin!

    Still showing $999 USD on Amazon's US website
  8. Ok, so they are selling. Maybe not as fast as everyone involved was expecting, but if the set was truly limited to 10,000 units, then it should be sold out before the end of the year. Personally, with all the hoopla surrounding it, I thought all 10,000 would have been pre-ordered by mid June, which is why I was quick to stake my claim to one as soon as it was made available on the site.
  9. Do you think Axl likes SMKC's music?

    I have never really cared for Slash's solo/Velvet Revolver work. Never cared for Duff's either. Izzy's stuff wasn't too bad, though I'll admit it's a small sampling of his music that I've heard, from the first Ju Ju Hounds record, to 117 Degrees. Slash's guitar playing is really crisp now, but when it comes to the two songs I've heard off his new record, his solos are kind of just all over the place. Reminds me of C.C. Deville in Poison--just a whole lot of frenetic shredding on solos, without leaving anything very memorable. Does Axl care for Slash's solo work? Not likely, but I think he respects Slash's passion to keep making new music. He understands Slash is a road warrior.
  10. Slash, Duff, and Axl are fully aware of the interest in new Guns N' Roses music. They spent 2+ years circling the globe in an effort to re-introduce themselves to the old fans, and made a lot of new, younger fans in the process. It helps that the tour was nearly perfect, from Axl's punctuality, to Slash elevating his guitar playing to levels never seen before live, thanks to being off drugs and booze. The band really could not have set themselves up any better to release new material. Ever the optimist, I honestly think GN'R could slip in a new song or two in this final leg of shows in November. This would leave the fans hungry for a full album, which I think could be completed by the end of 2019, if the big three continue to get along, and schedules allow it. I think they realize they can't wait too long, because then all the momentum built up from the tour will end up fading away, and it'll be back to just hard core fans asking for new music.
  11. Original Giant Appetite For Destruction poster

    Cool poster, wish I had one. Whoever that belongs to should have it framed, unless it's an old picture and the poster isn't in good condition anymore
  12. I'm just kind of annoyed that I ordered the Locked N' Loaded set about six hours after it became available on May 4th, and thought I'd get a low number on the Certificate Of Authenticity. Instead, I got # 3,644 of 10,000. No fuckin' way there were 3,643 orders place before mine, I'll bet there weren't even 500. By comparison, I got #165 of 1,987 on the Appetite 3D vinyl sold at knucklebonz.com. It's wicked cool, to boot.
  13. "Time Heals All Wounds"
  14. Really good and informative interview there, but I do wish Slash had been asked about his input on the Appetite box set, as in whether he had any say in what demos and live recordings made it on to the Locked N' Loaded and Super Deluxe Edition. I don't know if I'm the only one, but as I'm reading about how Slash is retelling the story about working shit out with Axl, I'm thinking to myself, I still cannot believe Slash is back in Guns N' Roses.....I'd just given up hope that it would ever happen, based on things that had been said in the past.
  15. What is Axl up to these days?

    Absolutely no way. The reunion tour was as big as it was because Slash and Duff (but especially Slash) were back in the band. A Guns N' Roses lineup without those two guys (but especially Slash) will go nowhere fast.
