Do you think Axl likes SMKC's music?

Recommended Posts

It is quite well know that Axl dug Fall To Pieces, and evidently he likes Slither judging by recent setlists. I could also imagine him enjoying a good chunk of VR's catalogue, especially Contraband and Messages.

I also can imagine Axl hearing a few things on the Slash & Friends solo album which made his ears prick up. But for some reason, I can't imagine him going for SMKC. I can imagine him checking it out and thinking "meh, if this is the best he's got, I'll give new GNR music a pass."

When ''Anastasia'' was released he should have thought, ''fuck me, this could have been Guns N' Roses's Locomotive Part 2'', but then he apparently declined the riffs in ''Beggars and Hangers On'' so...

He likes By the sword, wasn't there a story with that song?

With SMKC, he probably likes bits and pieces, guitar riffs, etc.

I believe he must find most of their songs to be a little bit child-ish and teen oriented, but there are exceptions, of course.

No he despises it.

Feels "Garbage" isn't a strong enough word to describe it.

I’d be surprised if he’s even listened to SMKC’s full albums truthfully.

The songs are there.. It is just the Myles/Todd harmonies that are boring.. I bet he would just listen and think that he could have done much better things with the songs.

I don't find much Slash has done since gnr to be all that inspiring, especially recently. I don't think Axl really cares tbh.

Im sure he is just happy Slash got a new album, he got another excuse that theres no GN'R album anytime soon, and he can say its not his fault! Slash screwing GN'R again!

I think everyone knows ( and has known for a long, long time) that the reason for not getting new  Guns n' Roses music is definitely not Slash.

Wasn't there somebody's quote that both Axl and Slash are very supportive of each other's side projects (Axl/DC - SMKC)?

Yeah, I remember reading that here in the forum however just like you said, it's unknown if that means he actually likes SMKC songs.

But I do think that he might like a few riffs and solos, perhaps a song as well.

I'd like to think SMKC was a factor in Axl considering bringing Slash back.

How so?
