Im not sure if their is a better version floating around but the version i just heard on soundclod with all the talking n bs is un lisenable. U guys are better fans then i am to have the patience to lisen more then once. 

Yes, talking is brutal. It makes me question the authenticity a bit. Why do we all know this cellphone recording is real?  The “studio clip” with the ticking sounds actually similar to the cellphone recording so I am surprised the studio version is “confirmed” fake 

I hope the Prostitue video is fake.  It’s a poor man’s Gorillaz video. Given how bad the Better video was, perhaps it’s the only thing that’s legit! 🤔

The Prostitute video is for the background videos during the live performances, not an actual music video

Manufactured "studio" version, yes. I haven't heard the cellphone version that's out there, but I suspect it is from the original source. I spent a lot of time cleaning it up, but I don't think I ever sent a full version of my cleanup to anyone. I don't think.

Okay I wasn’t sure. Towards the end in the last 30 seconds it has some strange leveling compared to the rest and distortion you’d get from noise removal and compression. So I figured I’d ask.

Ok found it. Can't make much out, to be honest.

 

Was my post hidden by a mod or something? I wasn't asking for a link, or trying to be "sneaky" and asking by not asking. Jeez, at least tell me that's what you're doing.

The video seems to align with what Goldstein wrotte to Axl on that letter, a video completely made with stock footage where they wouldnt spend a penny, so I assume it is legit.

Got it. The video is meaningfully better than all of the backing videos for NITL. 

I always thought the 2002 concert backing videos were pretty good. NITL is a bit cheesy

So this is me not really asking for it for myself but how have people heard the legit version? Was it on YouTube for a hot second?

That's a good question.  If it gets removed from youtube or is not being posted there, doesn't that add to the validity that this is a real leak and not fan made?

Have you ever made a version of This I Love that had drums, rhythm guitars, and bass through out the whole song.

It topped Estranged as the best song in the Estranged trilogy, now quadology

For real is that great ?

I dont think its musically like Estranged. Its slow, but heavy, not ballad like. It has that soaring guitar solo though which I think can be taken as a similarity to Estranged. Its very much NuGNR (in a good way) sounding

It really reminds me of Bucket's solo on Madagascar, but it could also be Finck.  Either way, it's great.

Yeah. I think its Bucket but it could be Finck. Also, I can make out some really saturated power chords at the end. Pretty cool

Thanks for all the background info @Mindray11; I remember I was tossing up between going to Geneva vs. Vienna back in 2010, and remember regretting it a bit when I saw how wild the Vienna crowd was compared to the nearly-comatose Geneva one :lol: Not that I would have ended up at the after-party or anything, never been to one of those. Happy I got electric Catcher in Geneva, though, after getting acoustic Catcher at L'Arc :)

What? Is that the true story? Are we listening to different songs in this clip? 

Can you tell us more about this, and the after party?

normal concert after show party, where they meet fans and stuff

I wonder if this leads any more credence to the rumours that Axl wanted to release CDII in 2010 and nearly cancelled the tour via that August tweet when the label said no.

After L'Arc a fan asked him what the deal with new music was and he said something along the lines of "Just have to figure out what our deal with the label is...".

This is such BS lol. Are we supposed to go hunting for a "possibly The General terrible quality cell phone recording"?

It's ridiculous that fans have to put up with this bullshit just to hear new GNR material. It's been like this since the day I discovered GNR back in like 1998. All I want is the opportunity to hand over £10 for a CD that has Axl Rose singing shit I've not heard before, why is it this complicated? :lol:

This band makes me so mad at times lol. I try so hard to remain positive, but in the last month alone we've had $1000 for a boxset of shit we've all heard, fkn Fly GNRAir whatever that is, Fernando calling us idiots, the same old stale setlist, and now this nonsense about 7 second cellphone recordings. Are we being trolled, or am I the troll for expecting the band to release music like a normal band?

Someone on staff please ban me and put me out of my misery, please lol :facepalm:

so the intro in 2006 at 1:55 here...is that the general intro, wasn’t it really long? Or has that story been proven false and the intro is something else.
