  1. 1. RATE: CATCHER IN THE RYE (BRIAN MAY)

    • GnR classic. Worthy of the original band. Feels like a lost Illusion III track. Axl ruined it with Bumblefoot.
      93
    • Love it. Not sure if it's worthy of classic GNR, but it's really good. The demo has a ton of potential.
      73
    • It's good. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • Meh. Another Chinese song that is just...whatever.
      23
    • It sucks. Truly. Dizzy playing a 2 hr bongo solo is more interesting than this song.

    • The final album version with Bumblefoot is way better. I like how it was changed into more of a hard rock song.
      31
    • GUNS N' ALIENS. Whether it's good or bad is irrelevant. STRADLIN'

I don't like it either way tbh.  It's always been one of my least favorite tracks by GnR.

Same here.

The finished track is just as good.

I liked Brian's take (edited take😁) too, but I think bumbles Solo fits great too, and is one of the most Slash-like solos on the record!

You guys are weird. The most excruciating song on CD is The Blues - and I actually really liked the live version from '02. Not sure wtf happened to the final version :lol:

The 2002 demo is superb.  I can't believe they ended up with that awful version on the record

The "how a body took a body" line is actually a quote from the novel.

In all fairness you don't cut up (or add to) someones solo without permission.

Did he not learn anything from the Tobias' fiasco? :no:

At the same time it was for Axl's record so he could do with it what he pleased.
