  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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...
  5. GNR jumped the dolphin (finally)

    Be sure to drink your Ovaltine!
  6. 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.
  7. I assume the sixth remix is Sorry with Melissa and Brain, at least based on their live performances.
  8. I feel like I had this demo from original analog sources years ago, but the quality was terrible. Glad that the remastering went well!
  9. Ha! I have that in my bathroom.
  10. 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.
  11. Next GN'R Album Name Rumors?

    Or this one from MSL... From that purported USB drive...
  12. Next GN'R Album Name Rumors?

    Equal Loot.
  13. Updated setlist for Europe! Haha. I'd be very surprised if they did a setlist without any ChiDem songs.
  14. I think musical tastes are so subjective, especially given the nostalgia factor of a band from the 80s. Due to the nostalgia factor, I think many fans could not accept a different vision or version of GNR than they experienced from 85 to 93- it wasn't the same as the remembered so fondly, so they didn't want to give it a chance. Some fans, like myself, used to login daily for rumors, crappy quality audio leaks, and other news due to the dry spell up until November 2008. The rumors of the grandiosity of Chinese Democracy never made sense to me, as AFD was so dirty and UYI was a huge progression where styles were concerned, so how could an album either recapture the original spirit or outshine it? Still, I felt compelled to see just what they were working on, starting with buying a CD bootleg of RIR 3, just for the "new songs," until I eventually got cable internet and would spend some afternoons downloading shows from 2002, and later IRS and Catcher demos, and then all of the other legitimate leaks through 2013. The remix album tracks were fine, perhaps unnecessary, but songs lile Going Down could've been great on a future album, much like YOU had tracks contributed by Duff and Izzy. We just wanted proof that there was SOMETHING being worked on. I never did believe that 3 or 4 albums were ready to go, but I was indeed curious. I still think Chinese is a decent album which could have benefited from better production and a slightly different tracklisting- an alternate mix of Better was awesome, and I feel like over the years there were different takes of The Blues and some others. There was no way it could live up to the fan hype (media hype seemed to die down significantly by 2005, only to reignite in 2006 a bit), but I definitely bought mine Day 1. Some of the ballads would've fit on UYI easily, but surprises like SR and ITW were different enough that is be interested in hearing an album dedicated to each style (however, in SR case, numetal was on its way out long before it was recorded in 2004). I think each album means something different to everyone, depending on where they were in their lives. I don't check the forums or entertainment sites that often anymore, but I'm interested in hearing any new releases this band, in any incarnation, releases.
  15. So, I saw this posted and had assumed it was the same video from early November, so I ignored it until now. Check it out for the live debut of the Better Gone remix... It makes me wonder why they are showcasing these tracks? I assume Melissa worked with Brain in the studio on them, and the other few officially unreleased remixes like Shackler's, This I Love, and Prostitute (Blood in the Water). Kind of fun to hear as a fan, but I wonder how the crowd is responding (other than the dude on the floor dancing with his feet...) https://youtu.be/vW1vLK_nFbo
