It's a fake that is endlessly being shared as if it's real.

Bob Ezrin and UMG fucked Axl's career. I keep coming back to this and it's more and more obvious that Axl had the material to release in 2000. It's so sad.

I was listening to the bass track from My Michelle today - presumably taken from the Blu Ray - and noticed there's a synth line for about 20 seconds that comes in at 2 mins 28. It's not loud enough to be heard in the full song (at least to my ears anyway).

Made me wonder what else people had found that's buried in the AFD mix but can now be heard thanks to the Blu Ray?

Slash in that video:  "recording live with the band in the studio to capture the feel of the band working together"

Axl:  "never heard of that technique before, what's that?"

No one would remember this, but Ive complained a bit about how my local rock radio station doesnt play Guns. I stopped even dialing in for a while. Anyways they now play a shit ton on GNR!!!! :headbang: AFD and UYI hits of course. The station is really good now. And woke... maybe thats because of the reborn Axl too (:lol:) ?

Listening to Boston 2002. I've said it here before and I'll say it again- that '02 was tight. So much wasted potential.

How close did GNR come to an MTV Unplugged performance?

Those were big in 95 and later. Band was in limbo.

Does anyone remember a candid pic of Axl circa 2006-2008 where he was hanging out smiling with some random soul band? Cant find it...

Ghost will be working on a new album, and Tobias Forge will introduce Papa Emeritus IV. 

First off, yaaaay! 

But why I am writing it here: According to Blabbermouth, he said in an interview that the band will do "absolutely zero" touring in 2020 as he turns his attention to the band's next studio album.

Oh my god - now imagine someone from GN'R uttered such sentence...! But no, hell will freeze over first!

I may not be remembering this correctly but didn't Aerosmith do the first unplugged on MTV?  The reason I remember it is because they recorded it in the then "new" high definition.  I think it was around '89 or '90.

Somewhere I still have a bootleg called "Gun's and Roses Unplugged" with that CBGB's show and some rando UYI era live songs. It was one of my favorites, and best sounding bootlegs.  I can't remember all of the songs though, I know the acoustic Mr. Brownstone was like my favorite ever for a while, and I really liked the Dead Flowers live.

Epic performance ... One in a Million is the highlight for me

State of Grace should have been performed in full at the 2002 VMAs. The bands image (mainly Finck  Tommy and Bucket) would have fit better with that song imo. Plus seems like it would be all around easier to sing for Axl. 1st half is lower register, and he seemed to handle sustained high notes better than he did with the "rapping" verses of say Paradise City at the time

I used to have that very bootleg! Bought it at a record store right in the middle of Orlando some time in the mid 90s.

I still have that bootleg... I think I actually have 2 copies of it, on CD and vinyl :lol:

 

Dead Flowers from the final '93 show is fantastic. :axl92::slash::headbang:
