Yeah, that was proper fuckin’ gash.  They look like a B Tec New York Dolls with none of the charm/style.

Friend of mine once bought a fuckload of albums in a jumble sale and there was a Kiss one, a double album, there was some right bollocks in there, Abba, Bruce Springsteen, Garth Brooks, it all got a listen but Kiss escaped the net for some reason.  They just look thoroughly disinteresting, I mean I love a gimmick as much as the next man but its gotta have a bit about it, a bit of flair and dare, as opposed to four dirty great yanks done up like malevolent meathead mimes.

I don't think Alice Cooper has ever forgiven them for nicking his idea and copying him.

I actually remember reading an interview where initially they were glam and they saw The Dolls and decided they could never top that so they went and nicked Alices schtick instead.

Kiss are one of the acts that have never really been something the English people have liked. It is curious how you mention Garth Brooks as he is another one. Kiss, Garth Brooks, Dave Matthews, Tool.

I think there was alot of interest in kiss from the uk, when they reformed and played donnington i think 96 but thats it. Thats judging by stuff ive read on the net, but over here they were and probably still are have a very healthy fan base. Hence why they still tour here. However i like dynasty and unmasked so i suppose my tastes can be questionable.

It is a bit like Wrestling and Superbowl basketball. I suppose it is a sort of cult thing.

Don't feel bad man, I played the crap out of Dynasty.  Some hidden gems on it, Ace's take on 2000 Man along with Save Your Love and Hard Times.  Like Dirty Livin by Peter too.  Off topic, sorry.

TSI is so underrated in the GnR catalogue. 

After 10 years of Chinese Democracy it’s not even close to Appetite or Illusions, and in saying that, I think some of Axl’s best work is on CD, but so is his worst. 

I miss Robin.

His worst is on Illusion 2:  Shotgun Blues, Get in the Ring, and My World. Sad thing is the music on Shotgun and Ring is pretty good, but Axl ruined those songs with horrible lyrics. My World is just garbage all around.

I love both Shotgun Blues and Get In The Ring.. Hell I even like My World for what it is.

It is a cool little piece of music to end an album.. I wouldn't want a whole album of that from GnR but it was cool for what it was.. I liked how the played it over the PA at the end of the Get In The Ring shows too.

Has the band done any bar/private shows with the NITL unit?

You could argue that the Apollo show was “private”. I think it was only for SiriusXM subscribers and a few contest winners.

And the Troubadour show, but only because of it being in such a small place. It wasnt “private”

So I was thinking about my favorite GN'R shows all time, sort of which shows from each 'era' I would pick for wide release:

One of the Japan shows for 2009

London show for 2006-the one with Sailing

2002 Boston

Skin and Bones, either one of the Argentina shows or the Hartford show.

UYI, either the Philadelphia show from July, Las Vegas or one of the Forum shows. Maybe one of the Swedish shows

I don't know about the Appetite era though?

I know every time I listen to boots from '87 or '88 they're amazing. Just not sure. What do y'all recommend I could listen to?

Probably melbourne 88

Marquee UK I think 87

I'm wanting to hear some of the shows when they supported motley crue in 87.

What's the realistic chance of a Guns album this year?

If I had to attach a number to it I would say between 0 to 10 percent, realistically.  But I do think that number goes up dramatically in 2020.

For all we know, Axl's been sitting on his arse for more than 3 months and counting, because he really doesn't have much to do ATM.

We know he's the one who takes most of the time when it comes to making an album, so that's A LOT of time (8-10 months if you count this past 3 months) to work. He totally could've been working on it if they are planning a late-2019 release. It's not impossible, Axl has proven more than once that he's not the same person he was before the reunion. Everyone but Slash is basically scratching their balls (minus some stupid little projects like Richard's), so they could all be working on it as we speak. Then Slash comes back from touring and does his thing (which we know he does INCREDIBLY fast). It's not impossible, and also not that hard to think given how professional they all were during the NITL tour.

 

Of course, I expect a 2020 release for obvious reasons, but I would say that the chances of a 2019 release are far more than just a 10%.

I guess this thread is the right place for weird musings concerning the rims of the Gn'R universe. :lol:

 

Imho Robin Finck is mentioned in Tori Amos' Song Sugar. A B-side from 1994. It supposedly is a song about her relationship with Trent Reznor. Tori apparently was very close with the whole band at the time. #crazyfantalk

The reffrain goes:

Sugar, bring me sugar
I know the Robins bring
Bring me many things but
Sugar, he brings me sugar
 

Edited to add: I have a thing for fierce redheads on a piano.

I’m not expecting anything this year – not that much time – but 2020 should do it.
