  1. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Oh, yeah, it could actually be that one as well, totally forgot about it. It was also played in the background during the Makin' Fuckin' Videos - Don't Cry DVD. That version is labeled as "Live" when it's even lesser live than the one with a fake crowd.
  2. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Are you sure? I can't seem to find a Yesterdays single with SOYL on Discogs.
  3. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Yeah. I've noticed on some single covers the song is labeled "live", while on others, it's not. It's pretty safe to assume it's the Suicide outtake whenever SOYL is mentioned pre-2018—seeing as it's the only official release of SOYL before the Rumbo Recorders version that appeared on Appetite 2018.
  4. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Most likely the "Live From the Jungle" EP version. The same version has appeared on versions of the "It's So Easy", "November Rain", and "Live and Let Die" singles. I assume it's just one of the B-Sides that usually appear on Best of compilations.
  5. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    Agreed. They should've gone with one of the classic GNR logos, so casuals can recognize it at Walmart.
  6. Unreleased Greatest Hits

    This is what I was able to find from an old HTGTH thread - obviously, the original images are higher res. Sadly, I also lost my original images. I remember some fan made a high resolution version based on the covers here. As for the tracklist, Troccoli's test pressing has a complete tracklist: Something quite interesting, Troccoli found a single CD, different copy on eBay with a different tracklist, track lengths, and "Pretty Tied Up" is spelt wrong. This particular copy is dated 11/10/2005, and Troccoli's copy is dated 1/26/2006 & 1/30/2006 so the tracklist has been changed around a little bit.
  7. making sweet child o mine

    Anyone got it downloaded? It's been claimed by SVT. EDIT: It's available for streaming on SVT's website, no English subtitles though.
  8. Marc and Jason have just published the first episode of "Marc's Vault" on recklessroad.com! They've also published photos and interviews alongside the podcast. First 20 people to answer their survey gets a signed copy of Reckless Road
  9. Always loved Appetite for Discussion! Was just visiting that section yesterday, I must say, it looks greater than ever. Great job @Blackstar & @SoulMonster!
  10. There's a Don't Cry excerpt that leaked about two weeks ago.
  11. UPDATE: "We were supposed to rehearse Thursdays." [Tracii Guns, Ultimate-guitar.com, 2017] I'll update this list as I get more research done. (Likely dates are marked using italics) A timeline (my interpretation by reading Raz's book and piecing together history): 1985.03.xx - First-ever GN'R rehearsal [Mates Rehearsal or WillPower Studios w/ Ole - This was somewhere after Hollywood Rose's March 7 gig] [Kevin B tape, Don't Cry excerpt leak]. 1985.03.14 - Second GN'R rehearsal [WillPower Studios, the band took a bunch of photos after this one, w/ Ole. If the previous rehearsal took place at WillPower, this rehearsal could also be where the Don't Cry excerpt leak is from - the only separating factor of the two is the studio]. 1985.03.xx - Third rehearsal is scheduled by the band minus Ole. 1985.03.xx - Ole hasn't responded for three days so Izzy suggests they bring in Duff. 1985.03.20 - Izzy teaches Duff material at home the day before the rehearsal. 1985.03.21 - Third rehearsal takes place at WillPower Studios with Duff [Raz Recording - possibly only rehearsed songs used in KPFK Interview]. 1985.03.21 - KPFK radio interview [Ad from March 22 in L.A. Weekly confirms it aired Sunday March 24] 1985.03.xx - Duff and Izzy go through more material at home [Possibly the rest of the setlist for their debut show]. 1985.03.xx - Fourth rehearsal before first-ever GN'R show. [Possibly rehearsed all songs this time, as Duff has learned all the material by now] 1985.03.26 - GN'R plays the Troubadour. I doubt Raz would just skip the supposed rehearsal without Ole in his book, Raz is a big fan of Ole's and I'm sure he'd also mention that the band rehearsed without him and his feelings towards Ole at the time. Raz further explains that the bassist switch happened very hastily: (Quotes are in chronological order) This is where Duff and Izzy went through material at home. This is where the 1st rehearsal and KPFK interview takes place. This is possibly where Duff and Izzy went through even more material at home in preparation for the show. This is where the 2nd rehearsal with Duff takes place. And, finally they play the Troubadour.
  12. I also suspected that they rehearsed without a bassist, but after reading Raz's book, it seems like they brought in Duff before the third rehearsal, as Ole wasn't responding at all and after three days of no response Izzy brought in Duff and Ole was basically fired. "After that second practice, another rehearsal was set for a tentative 'in a few days.' Ole neglected to tell anyone of his newest girlfriend, so when the next practice got scheduled, there was no way to get ahold of him. After three days of no one hearing from him, and rehearsal scheduled for the following evening, Izzy said, 'If Ole doesn’t want to be in the band, there’s a guy who lives across the street from me who’ll do the show.'" "With only enough time for two rehearsals before the debut show, Izzy taught Duff most of the material at home, and everything got tightened up at high decibels inside Wilpower Studios" So, unless you count that session with Duff and Izzy at home, there's only four documented rehearsals.
  13. Well. That's it, Fernando is not coming back to chat again when people did what he asked them not to. This community is incredibly self-destructive.
  14. Shouldn't MTV have some kinda info on this?
