I really like the 2001 era Axl with super clean vocals and would like to hear more of that kind of singing from him. Clean and powerful without the Mickey.

His voice at the HOB 2001 show reminds me of his voice in '86, though a bit older-sounding obviously. It's clean but it's sharp, and powerful, there were still moments of the classic Axl voice.

I never understood the hate for his voice in 2001-2002. Very powerful.

2017-2018 was so weak. I'm a long time Axl fan, and I cannot listen to an entire show.

Anyone know the total number of concerts Guns have done?

Counting the shows that were cancelled, 917.

Is this counting club shows, for example Hiro Ballroom 2012? And how many if you don’t count cancelled shows?

Not sure. I just went on Wikipedia and added up the number of shows for each tour :lol:

To be fair, when his voice was 'off' in 01-02 it was pretty bad. I remember the Asian shows being particularly bad, and at least a couple shows on the US leg were pretty weak. But he could still sound great, too - LALD, KOHD, Nov Rain, RQ, and the CD songs were all stellar in 2002. Overall, he was much better than '17-18.

The Asian shows were terrible, I agree. The IEM recordings are a waste of a download.

Vocally, I'd take any gig from the NA tour of 2002 over 2017-2018 NITL.

Man, I wish Chinese Democracy would have been released back then.

Probably grasping for straws here, but I feel like Axl got the idea/inspiration for the line "Cause I think we've seen that movie too" from an Elton John song called 'I've Seen That Movie Too'. It makes sense given that Axl is a huge fan.

Yep still crank those albums on a saturday night at home, pity the neighbours who had to hear. Funny thing about 12 months ago i was at a pub having dinner and a few drinks with the ex and the pub was playing UYI1 front to back on their sound system.

It's been forever since I looked through the cd booklets, but isn't Elton credited for that?

I've been listening to the Boston 2002 show a lot recently. That lineup may have been a freak show but there was so much potential there.

Madagascar & The Blues never sounded that good, again.

Listening to the San Diego 2017 IEM and I don't know if it was the mixing or if Axl had an off night, but this sounds like shit.

That's basically 2017-2018 Axl. That night was even better than The Forum IMO, and he still sounds like shit. Unfortunately Axl took the easy route this past two years

That's possible, considering Axl gives thanks to Elton and his "lover" in the liner notes on YCBM.

I wonder if Slash would be okay with Buckethead or Robin Finck playing a song or two with them as a quest in a concert some day.
