Come on now, let's not forget about the Golden Gods in 2014...

 

DJ Ashba (or his tech at least) should be crucified for that.

What do you mean, "Come on now"? I wasn't talking about Golden Gods. I was talking about Bridge School. These are different events.

Yes, very clear and not misinterpreted by me - not sure how you have misread my post.

I'm saying "Come on now" in the sense of saying that Bridge School was awful, but that Golden Gods an even lower ebb for this band when their biggest hit was absolutely butchered by a Slash imposter.

I was at the first night of Bridge School and it was just as awful as everyone says. I brought a friend and felt embarrassed during the set. You guys go on about tracking Axl’s rasp on 2018 shows, try finding a crumb of rasp in that entire show. You can count the moments on one hand.

 

I did like the Neil Young cover coming out of those shows tho

Of course Dj is not playing the intro wrong, it is the guitar that is out-of-tune or something. But yeah, absolutely terrible. Why didn't they just stop it and have Richard or Bumble play lead instead as soon as they heard the sour notes?

Yeah it was the best show in Axl's career.  His voice never sounded better. It's shame he doesn't sound like this now. Imagine Axl/DC with THIS voice. Oh my god it would be so fuckin amazing. And the band... The Great DJ Ashba and his magnificent solos. And these random notes in Patience :wub: Oh DJ... how I wish you were here.. instead of this stupid wanker :anger:

Frank at his best, Tommy... the greatest basist in the history of this band

And my favourite artist of all time.. Chris Fuckin' Pitman.. Genius . Look how much he add to the band.. His stage presence,his towel, his awesome backing vocals:headbang: His voice was so soft, so deep, so BEATIFUL! Not like Melissa's awful voice.

Oh this show was truly kick-ass. My favourite GNR show ever. Second one is RiR2011 it was amazing how Axl recovered his voice from awful 2006-2010 years. Now he's just a shadow of his 2012 self :(

Err, never said it was a great show. Just that it wasn't as bad as it has become here at mygrnforum (on of those fan truisms), at least not when considering both days, more than Axl's vocals, and the context.

Madagascar is one of my favourite songs ever and VMAs 2002 is hands down the worst, weakest version of it ever. His voice sounds so thin and weak like it's about to snap and he actually has to strain to force out "it's never tooo late." It's awful. Compared to the deep rich tones from Rio 3 or his recent full on raspy efforts it's embarrassing. So yeah, 10k for the rehearsal, fuck no.

But it does make you wonder how different things could have been had he come out looking and sounding like 2006-2010. Positive press and a surge in US ticket sales could have changed the whole thing.

I was just saying how tragic it is there isn't more Axl and Buckethead leads.

It's funny when Paradise City kicks in, Bucket goes, hey kids, hold my beer.

Then proceeds to embarrass all humans who have ever attempted to play the guitar.

I wonder that the clip is still up. 

If I were GNR, TB or the idiots who declare themselves as the ones who act in behalf of the band and take care of them (you know who you are), THIS particular video is the one which should have been taken down immediately (!!!) to avoid any further damage to the b(r)and Guns n' Roses. But here we go, it's still there. I just don't get it 😄

He sounds just as bad in that rehersal footage, as he does now. Everyone shits on the performance but that rehersal sounds much worse.

As for the actual performance at the vma's, I always thought Paradise was the worst vocal that night.

No. Now he put much more effort and rasp into Madagascar. In Jungle he improve after first verse and the rest is good. In PC he puts rasp sometimes and it sound ok. + Now he sings Maddy and PC after 3 hours of performing not 3 minutes. Some of 2002 shows were better than NITL shows but VMA was awful, cringe worthy and embarrassing and this rehearsal is worse

Even as a major fan of Chinese-era Guns- I really struggle with ‘02. Something was seemingly “off” or dark/foreboding about it all...  

Much prefer the optimism, and expectation of ‘01 and ‘06. Even prefer the “Vegas”/Dj-Bumble years b/c the album was out, and the shows were fun IMHO (plus we got a bd out of it).
