  1. Great stuff, thanks for sharing!
  2. NITL live videos on youtube

    I wonder if we will see Axl haha (more than 15 seconds i mean!)
  3. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    Re-reading this, its quite funny since they actually played on the same bill as Snoop a few months ago and took pics with him backstage.
  4. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    I remember that Izzy interview, it does sound random but after all why not. It seems to me Axl had a lot of unresolved issues about the old band and was overthinking it between 1994 and at least 1998, and even up until 2002 to some extent. Anyone remembers Albany's 2002 rant? "(...) You've been played. You've been lied to. You've been used. You've been manipulated so that they (Slash and Duff/ the old band) can ride around in limos and jam with Snoop Dogg or whoever the f**k. I don't care. That's their business, but they shouldn't really do it at your expense or mine. (...)" "He's up my a**, thats where Slash is! F**k off! Go home!" (Reacting to fans in the audience asking for Slash, Leeds 2002) The guy was pretty angry back then...
  5. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    You're right! The creepy/gross stuff overshadows some rare interesting parts actually about music and the band. Would love to hear Axl's version of that discussion... Matt's version seems a bit random/cliché about Axl (rambling on mid 80s stories) but who knows! I can definitely imagine the discussion about synths though. I wonder what Slash truly thinks about Melissa's addition to the band...

    This is getting ridiculous...other bands did it right, there is no excuse.
  7. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    That guy is a creep. We had a similar twisted politician in France who almost became candidate for presidential election but got arrested on a plane before coming back to France (but his stuff was not legal, which wasnt the case for Sorum apparently). These people need help. I mean he has issues. Telling the 7 y-o story now as an adult when you can clearly understand the poor girl had deep issues is just f**cked up. And the way he writes that is just like he would tell us he ate pizza last night. The writing is awful. Even a teenager with English as a third language would write better stories. Like many people said, he just forgets so much important stuff (music, GN'R history, etc) and focuses too much on his obsessions and issues. If the book is ever getting released, it needs to be rewritten all over, and reviewed by a real editor. I had about 3% of respect for Sorum, it went down to 0. Even his boring drums solo during the UYI tour feels like a philosophy masterclass compared to his "book".
  8. Need your help!

    Excellent ideas here. Love the idea where they could use shows shot on film from that era (warm up gigs come to mind) to turn them into HD glorious moments. I'm in the "no bullshit" stickers, guitar picks, rings whatever team. My two cents about the video stuff: - Please upgrade any show (besides Tokyo 92 obviously) like INXS did recently. Thats some dedication! Imagine that work done on Chicago 92. - 1991 pro-shots: Inglewood is obvious. MSG might be a good pick as well (Breakdown + Locomotive!!). Saratoga could be great as well. Or Denver (YCBM as an opener!!) - 1992 pro-shots: see above for a Chicago remaster/upgrade. All other ideas in the thread are great. - 1993 pro-shots: Tel Aviv or Paris. I'd rather have more video than audio but if we look at the AFD boxset its a long stretch. Oh well, lets see what comes out of this!
  9. RAR 2006 - When the stars aligned

    At last some appreciation for RAR 2006. Probably my fav show/pro shot of the post 2000 era. When people ask for Houston 2016 or some 2010 release i dont get it (as far as Axl's performance is concerned). 2006 was so much better than any of this in my opinion. That Jungle scream... A 1080 HD version of the show would be great.
  10. NITL live videos on youtube

    I think they're still trying to find a video where you actually see the singer/frontman on screen when he...sings! But apparently its not so easy. I was checking other bands videos this week and was thinking about that. Imagine a Led Zep show where you dont see Robert Plant when he sings (even in The Song Remains The Same you could see him acting haha). Some people said "its a thing" to see singers sing on live videos. Its not a thing, its just standard (especially rock i guess? Or no its global).
  11. NITL live videos on youtube

    One thing for sure is that there would be no evidence on screen it was him hahaha!
  12. NITL live videos on youtube

    Slash nailed it for sure.
  13. NITL live videos on youtube

    Besides the very bizarre editing (apparently noting it is seen as "complaining" but whatever), the whole thing is actually pretty cool, especially Double Talkin' Jive. Its clearly Slash's show and why not, fans waited 15 years for him! (if you count from Vegas/ Rio 2001) Still, the no-Axl-close-up thing is just bizarre. And everyone would say the same with similar videos without basically the lead singer on screen, from Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, the Stones or whatever. Lets see the next round, if there's one, sounds interesting!
  14. NITL live videos on youtube

    True, but the main difference is that you could "see" Axl. Here, whenever he sings, they show the far away shots where you can actually see him on the giant screens...very bizarre editing. Oklahoma and Chicago 92 had a more natural feeling I think. Here the whole video lacks dynamics (not to mention the silent crowd).
  15. NITL live videos on youtube

    Cool stuff if its repeated a few times with other shows! (And "better" crowds?) Video editing/ angle choices were so weird to me though...but great Slash/ Duff close ups!
  16. NITL live videos on youtube

    Where is Axl?? Seems like the video editor thought Slash was the leader of the band and decided to just pull up far away shots when Axl sings and excellent close ups whenever Slash plays. Slash does kick ass but still. Really weird editing...
  17. Not perfect of course, i mean these were only rough mixes, but i wish they would have mastered and released this in 2000/2001. Pitman stuff: its a bit too much for me, but could have been toned down during mastering. As for Atlas, not my cup of tea but blends in well i think with these rough mixes.
  18. Wow what version of the album it is, after a few listens... Those drums on Catcher are so great, you have to hear that on a good sound setup with good bass. Love that version. I agree with you guys on Atlas, and on the insiders calling out the "big guns" haha.
  19. Great stuff! That album would have been great in 2000/2001. Still dont get Atlas though. I somehow expected an epic track i dont know why, and this is...ok. I do love Perhaps. People would have been blown away 18 years ago. With a proper tour and a lot of these tracks added to the setlist it could have been huge. Of course there was no Slash, but there was material for sure.
  20. Haha sorry guys i was tired last night and didnt mean no disrespect about these. I understand some people are excited about this. I agree its interesting to see/ hear the creative process,
  21. So these guys are leaking the actual album we all got 11 years ago? Amazing!?
  22. Great stuff. Now we need one of these guys to release the good transfer HOB (is it a coincidence the 10GB version just leaked? I dont think so). The 10GB version quality is a disgrace to all video transfers out there.
  23. I love the wifey stories in this thread haha. Itdontreallymatta lol. Anyways, my fav leak of them all. The piano riff is amazing. Not a big fan of all the other tracks really, but this one has an actual Illusion feeling to it.
  24. I did, i do have a 3GB MP4 converted from that crap, but Fransad said it all. Garbage in = garbage out. I cant believe they screwed up the transfer that much, unless they want to trade the "real" version... I tried to watch it on a HDTV in full screen, quality isnt worth it believe me (1.5, 3 or 10GB version).
  25. There was a title i remember, Eulogy of a Broken Heart, but it turned out to be another song or a fake title maybe?
