    Not Telling
  1. Yes indeed! I remember the Birdcage one as well- still go to the Dimple Records over there fairly frequently! I think they were all still open into my early teen years. Cool stories! Thanks for sharing with another Sacramento native!
  2. Oh man! I'm quite a bit younger than you, but I used to love Tower Records and Books on Broadway and Watt respectively. Drive past Country Club every day en route home!
  3. I think three albums was just a pipe dream and something they had loosely discussed. I believe the album we got was due to the fact these were the only tracks submitted to be mastered prerelease- that is, the leaks we had were from the completed tracks sent to be finalized. There were no other completed tracks submitted to the label, so ChiDem is what we got. The three covers to my understanding were to be like the Smashing Pumpkins' Zeitgeist record where are the different packages contain different features ie bonus tracks, documentaries, music videos etc., but because there was nothing else ready to go, the concept was dropped. Ron mentioned doing a solo for Atlas, MSL leaked a mix of Going Down and the various Brain remixes, and we have that short clip of Checkmate. Silkworms was not seriously considered for CD, and neither was Oh My God, though the recently leaked mixes show reworking to some extent. I look forward to future releases, but I have no idea what they may consist of.
  4. I did buy a cool shirt at the December 2011 LA concert, but I did not purchase at any of the subsequent shows. I would have loved to have grabbed the San Francisco litho, but I didn't get the chance to.
  5. I know Merck was in the Sanctuary leadership, and the contract for catalogue publishing rights was for 20 years, but I can't seem to find the actual articles. Love how it mentions "dozens of new tracks," as demos and rehearsals don't count for an artist's catalogue. Sad to think that 13 years on, we have 14 legitimately released songs, a Tommy Stinson recording, a poor quality phone recording of a purported track, a handful of remixes, and a few early mixes of The Blues and Madagascar. Only 7 more years to get the next record! February 1st, 2005 Axl Rose Publishing Deal Fuels Feud By JANET MORRISSEY, For The Associated Press Rock recluse Axl Rose has signed a multimillion dollar publishing deal, and that isn't sitting well with his former Guns N' Roses bandmates. The deal with music powerhouse Sanctuary Group covers both the back catalogue, which includes hits such as "Sweet Child of Mine," "Paradise City" and "November Rain," as well as Rose's future material, including dozens of new tracks he recently recorded for Universal Music. After burning up charts and selling out stadiums around the world in the late '80s and early '90s, Guns N' Roses endured a bitter split, leaving only Rose and keyboard player Dizzy Reed to soldier on under the GNR banner. Former members Slash (Saul Hudson) and Duff (Michael) McKagan, now part of the band Velvet Revolver, filed a lawsuit against Rose last year over who controls the rights to the old GNR songs. The suit is still pending. McKagan's lawyer, Glen Miskel, expressed surprise when told of the Sanctuary deal. He said Rose, Slash and Duff were part of a partnership and "neither Sanctuary nor Axl Rose have provided the remaining partners with a copy of that agreement." He added Rose is trying to transfer copyright interests in songs which "are not owned by Mr. Rose." Guns N' Roses' manager Merck Mercuriadis, who just so happens to be CEO of Sanctuary Group, said he didn't want to comment beyond the announcement of the deal. Industry experts have valued the 20-year deal at about $19 million. Guess a Guns N' Roses reunion won't be happening anytime soon.
  6. The origin is fascinating to me, as it was taken in Manchester with an iPhone 4, by an unknown. Though I believe MSL had posted it originally, he was not responsible for taking the photo. It appeared around the time of the rumors of a CD re-release, with a companion remix and b-sides disc, as well as a purported self-titled album to be released Q4 of 2011. Everything was scrapped, and there has been much speculation about the label rejecting the package, band management changes, and the like. I had posted the image when it came out on HTGTH, GNRREVOLUTION, and a few others, and the threads were deleted. Over the last few years, I would periodically add it to existing threads, and usually it would get deleted or overlooked. I don't really have any more information or speculation, but I believe it to have been a legitimate page the creator took a picture of. Unfortunately, 7 years on no complete image has surfaced. The flipside is almost all the remixes have leaked (some better than others).
  7. The greatest tease from 2011, from a fellow in Manchester. Every time I've posted it at other forums, it gets deleted... Maybe something to it, though the ship has sailed and we have all the remixes...
  8. GNR jumped the dolphin (finally)

    Be sure to drink your Ovaltine!
  9. Yeah, I have to take a look and see if I still have those. There was also a Fortus guitar rig video where he played a part from Better that is not always easily heard in the studio version. Edit: Starts at 8:50. Not exactly hidden, but cool to hear solo.
  10. I assume the sixth remix is Sorry with Melissa and Brain, at least based on their live performances.
  11. I feel like I had this demo from original analog sources years ago, but the quality was terrible. Glad that the remastering went well!
  12. Ha! I have that in my bathroom.
  13. Still haven't caught it on local radio stations! Only heard one mention of the boxed set on Thursday... Hope it starts rotating in Sacramento, just for something different.
  14. Next GN'R Album Name Rumors?

    Or this one from MSL... From that purported USB drive...
