GNR Tribute Album Coming Soon

Recommended Posts

Jesus, that album was terrible. Tribute albums like this exist only to make a quick buck, they have no musical merit.

Locomotive and Dust N Bones were OK I guess, the rest sucked big hairy ones. Their only future is to become filler for 'The History of Guns' type cash grab compilations.

The Phil Lewis ones sound like super 80s hair metal versions of those tunes. All the danger and swagger that was present in the original is gone. The other tunes don't sound much better. I think I'll stick to the original GnR recordings :)

Rocket Queen isn't too bad. Just wondering WHY do an album like this. Was wondering the same thing about the metal GN'R tribute album as well.. what's the point. Where the major bands showing the GN'R influence?

it can be a good album if it is performed by real bands

and specially if it is performed by real bands that came BEFORE GNR and that really INFLUENCED GNR somehow...

 

 

Aerosmith can easily do a fantastic version of Nightrain

Rolling Stones can do Used to Love Her since it is basically Dead Flowers and It's All Over Now rewritten by Izzy. They can also easily do a blistering version of Bad Obsession with harmonica and all

AC/DC can rearrange Anything Goes to their style

ZZ Top can do way bluesier versions of Move to the City and You Ain't The First

Judas Priest can do speed-metal versions of Reckless Life and play You're Crazy even faster than the Appetite version

Kiss can make Think About You their own if they play it with Paul Stanley on vocals

Steve Jones can restart his solo career with his own version of It's so Easy

Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood could do a fantastic electric bluesy version of Patience

Jeff Beck can finally show us his own take of Locomotive and I wouldn't mind a bit if it was an all-instrumental guitar-bonanza

Paul McCartney won't be out of place singing So Fine

Elton John can obviously do the ultimate November Rain cover

Alice Cooper can offer an unexpected twisted version of My Michelle

Keith Richards can close the album with a rendition of Dust n' Bones

No, I didn't realize it was even released. I am actually going to 

 

Ughh I just listened to a few clips.. Pretty bad for the most part. I have nothing against tribute albums but it is kind of pointless to have a bunch of D-list musicians do it.. It would be cool to have one done by legit artists.. Like they did on Nativity in Black for Black Sabbath or the Zeppelin tribute Encomium.  

Bands with creativity and that want to share their own music with fans DON’T do covers of other bands......oh wait, whoops. Never mind.

There are tons of those cheap GNR cover albums and unfortunately I bought nearly all of them. They are total crap, with only one exception:

Strings of Fire, which is nothing but awesome (really bad artwork though)! Enjoy!
