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.

I have the dust n bones shirt practically new. Bought it in a record shop in 92 and its 2 sizes to big for me, but i wont let it go.

Nice... I used to have the double sided all over print UYI shirt in the late 90s, wore it to death until it went in the bin. Very regretful.   Back then I’d always find gunners shirts at used clothing stores, never even think to look these days 🤔

At 2:52 of State of Grace, I hear "I ask myself "for whats this meaning"?  With the bold part being 99% he says that and the italic part being he probably says something like that

 

At 2:28 he says "You thought you had it figured out but now?????????"

What the fuck is the 4th verse in Paradise City about? 

"City gas chamber" verse? It's about pollution in LA

I'm talking about the "Captain America has been torn apart" verse.

Just playing around with my definitive Chinese Democracy playlist, this is where I'm at:

  1. Chinese Democracy
  2. Atlas Strugged
  3. Perhaps
  4. Better
  5. The Blues
  6. There Was A Time
  7. Catcher In The Rye
  8. Hard School
  9. Sorry
  10. I.R.S.
  11. Madagascar
  12. State Of Grace
  13. This I Love
  14. Prostitute

Zero filler. As an album that is as good or better than both Illusion albums in my opinion.

Is DJ Ashba involved, most likely from a Production standpoint, in GNRs upcoming (lol) album?

There's absolutely no reason for him to be, so I would guess no. Also, no one has any idea who's involved at this point or if an album is even in the works.

In the meantime, something to cool off. 
Isn’t this brutally low-res and yet somehow absolutely awesome image absolutely awesome?
Have a nice evening / morning / midday / whatever, fellow GNR earthlings.

It is, except for the cigarette holder.  It's like the scene in Casino where Pesci admonishes De Niro for using one.

Hey, so what’s happening. Is there some censorship going on?

I may be a bit drunk, but I know I just made a little rant about Ja*mo and his pathetic site in the other thread (since someone asked about him) – and I can’t find it any more all of a sudden.

Wtf. Hope this is just some kind of misunderstanding or something... 

Long live GNR. See ya tomorrow.

Edit: I'm hoping for some kind of explanation...

We've never allowed insults toward Jarmo or his site. Discuss him and his site all you want, but there's no need to hurl insults at him. That's been our policy for a very long time.

Appetite for Democracy is currently on Sky Arts. I just fired it on and Don’t Let It Bring You Down was being played. Pretty sure that was left out of the release.

Axl sounded pretty bad on that song, but it was still a good Niel Young impression :lol:

Were any other songs chopped from the release? I can’t understand why it would be on a broadcast but not the official release?

You know, I actually liked a few of the performances of it. This one in particular was utter shite, but still baffled that it was included in the broadcast!!!

I think it was due to royalties etc that it was cut out, I seem to remember there was a thing back when it was about to be released that Neil Young's camp were playing hard ball. I've got the DVD somewhere, but the broadcast included guitar jams etc, I'd guess that was all removed from the official release. I'd need to watch to confirm though!

Yea to be fair I liked a couple performances of it, and it is weird that it was broadcast. I don't think I've ever seen a pro-shot of that particular version, but I've heard the soundboard recording from 10~ days earlier (the one that was broadcast on Sirius xm) and I remember it being a better version.

 

@DieselDaisy you seem like the biggest Niel Young fan around here, what'd you think of Axl's impression on that song?

Over on reddit, I've seen people talking about a Roxy '86 soundboard & Iceland 2018 leak. Is there any truth to that? I got kicked out of the GNR discord for some reason, so I havent been up to date on rumors of leaks.

I’ve had this weird experience (it wasn’t the first time). There’s a bunch of online radio stations I listen to. I mean, I turn it on while doing something else, without really paying attention to it. Don’t remember the names, but the only criterion I had was it had to be sort of gravitating around rock or so, not too intrusive etc., just some background music, right? One of the stations (from Florida, I think) occasionally throws in some interesting tune, and I’ve discovered (or re-discovered) several artists thanks to that.

But to the point – it’s not a radio where GN'R would be played very often. It has happened, mainly some smooth UYI stuff like NR, but it’s really very seldom. And a few days ago, I suddenly heard Street of Dreams. My first impulse was to tune over, but then it sort of absorbed me... and it was wonderful. I’m sure you guys know this particular experience – as if you’re listening to the thing through someone else’s ears, because it comes from a source where it wasn’t quite expected.

And I realized that despite all the shit we’ve been through with this band as fans, there’s still magic. Yep, it’s there. And where there’s magic, there’s hope.

My head’s throbbing with a hangover, I hope this makes some sense.

Have a great one.

It's taken me 15 years but Don't Damn Me has finally really grown on me.

I used to always skip it when I was younger.

It could have maybe even been on Appetite, or at least a terrific B-side in that era.

Don't Damn Me and Breakdown were the last two to grow on me. There's tracks that still haven't and I have to assume never will, but those were the last two. 

The more I listen to the end run of UYI, the more I love Don't Damn Me. It just fixed perfectly there.

I totally know what you mean.  I was watching MTV classic and the SCOM vid came on and I said to myself "right there, that's the reason".  Just need a reminder sometimes.
