I just listened to Live Era and thought, that the PC intro was sooo much better with a little crunch than the sterile, clean intro they play on NITL

I love the lyrics to breakdown, but i dont know what personal issues he was dealing with during the recording. I understand he was dealing with emotional and or mental issues after the illusipn release as he wanted to put the tour on hold because he wasnt mentally ready to tour at that time.

Would be awesome if they joined Metallica for their delayed ANZ tour.

Tonight for Halloween I am dressing up as Chinese Democracy.  Which means I won't dress up for my costume for 15 years and when I do it will have too many uneccesary additions

You also should have one too many layers and be heavily leaking...

Loved the song since it was released in 1999. Went to WalMart the day the fucking soundtrack dropped. :lol:

Wow, too bad I’ll never sell it, it was too small so I never wore it and it’s like new. Makes me wish I’d kept all of my old guns shirts from the 90s.

The intro of the NITL version is terrible all the way up to the whistle.. Axl's voice.. The little extra woh oh oh oh oh ya thing he does sounds bad. It sounds even worse when he sings it over that classic Slash intro lick.. Then the strange place he blows the whistle.. After all that they rockit though.. Would be nice to have it be awesome all the way through though.

I haven't listened to it in over a decade but I used to like it too.. Also went out and bought the CD. I used to try and play it for all my friends. No one gave a shit or liked it.

I've been dealing with a pretty fucked up case of depression for 8 months now, I've been absent from work on a medical leave for half of this year because of it. I lost my dad last year and I haven't digested it yet. It's not the first time I struggle with depression and GnR has got me out of it before.

Anyways. Today I decided to get out and I went to the GYM to see if it could help me blowing off some steam. I had a panic attack while I was running so I decided to head back home asap. I had my headphones on and I played a playlist I have on spotify and Breakdown came on. It's been a loooong time since I've listened to it, so I paid lots of attention in an attempt to change my focus and bring myself back. It's weird how messed up Axl must had been back in the days when he wrote this song and how it completely describes the moment I'm living now, 28 years after its release. Specially on these verses:

When I look around
Everybody always brings me down
Well is it them or me
Well I just can't see
But there ain't no peace to found
But if someone really cared
Well they'd take the time to spare
A moment to try and understand
Another one's despair

That's one of the big reasons I want them to release new music. This guy's a genius lyricist. 

Hope you're doing better now buddy. We're always here for you.
