Slash ain't as good live as he was on the Illusion tour. 

I hate to say this but after watching both tokyo 92 dvds the other day im kind of agreeing with your statement. I just wonder if hes bored with the NITL setlist, of there is something about the whole NITL he hates.

After seeing SKMC early 2019 the chemistry that slash has wiyh those band members is different to how i see slash on stage with GNR. I just  think theres something about the whole NITL that he seems emotionally removed from.

SMKC is his passion project, GNR pads his bank account and got him flush again with cash after his divorce.

He probably hears the same  crap we  do at the shows knowing how much better they could sound, but if Axl is going to go through the motions why shouldn't he.

He plays to a fraction of the people at his own gigs, but his energy level and and overall playing is usually better (not to mention he always looks happier).

I think when the re-union started he probably deep down was hoping to make some music with Axl again, but the bigger a pipe dream  that begins to look like  the bigger the chance  that the uneasy peace right now breaks.

Steven Alder will never be as awesome as Josh Freese or Brain on drums.

Axl looked cool as hell with Charles Manson merch in 1993 than in 1992 wearing tights.

Atlas was underwhelming

Steven Alder's side project is cringey cock rock garbage

One In A Million is a gem in GNR history (way better than Estranged)

TB doesn't deserve any of the hate

What parts do you think are specifically about him?

its more about the song being an equal 20% representation among the 5 band members and adler holding his own, the intro and groove is all him then izzy, duff slash axl all complimenting each other perfectly 

the 3/4 of the song gives the listener the absolute height of their chemsitry and especially adlers groove can't be replicated its like john bonhams intro on good times bad times 

this is one of the only gnr songs that i've never gotten bored of (along with think about you )its like fine wine and adlers the only one with the chops on it from any gnr incarnation 

 

izzy's solo in think about you is the best solo in gnr's catalogue, would easily go to slash for nightrain at the end but they faded it out which could have been extended by like 3 minutes

I like that the band moved away from the Appetite sound/image. The best way to get me to lose interest in a band is to put out the same record, especially if every record is about drugs, alcohol, and partying.

GN'R didn't do that with Appetite but I swear to God, every band that plays in the GN'R style tries to portray this hardcore image and they end up coming across as try-hards. Yes, it's fun to get really drunk but when every other song is about whiskey and women, it's boring as shit. 

I am with you, however I just wish the next evolution of image following Appetite didn't include hot pants :lol:

That's not Adler's side project, it's his main one.

I assume you're not a fan of old school country music. Every song is about one of the two, whiskey or women--or both.  Example,  "Whiskey If You Were a Woman"😄

Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down ... There's A Tear In My Beer. It's the better era of country. 

I'm so glad GNR made it out of the appetite era alive.

I think Evader’s mix of the General might be better than most of leaks. Sounds crazy

3- Bumblefoot was the best guitarist hired by Axl duri g his solo tour - Ron is the best imo 

 

4-The Scream in Jungle and Live and let Die was prerecorded during the NITL tour and lip synced by Axl

LOL, Axl has never done a solo tour. Also, accusing him of lip syncing isn't really an opinion thing.

3 - I agree, and I've always thought this. 

4 - Nonsense.

It just always seemed like it was “unfinished” to me.

Yea fair enough, I can see why... but for me it's a good 'transition' song between Back Off Bitch and Nov Rain. It wouldn't really work anywhere else in the tracklist.

The live versions are always good, though.

Totally agree with one of those statements and completely disagree with the other!

Tho I thought the Live and Let Die screams may have been " helped" around 2012??

I really couldn't care less about any new music and I am afraid more new songs is just going to dilute the concerts in the future as they are going to play a few less older songs to add in the newer

It'd be super sweet if new songs diluted the goddamn covers.

Covers like Wichita lineman, black hole sun, the Seeker maybe even KOHD yes dilute away, but I am guessing it is not the covers that are going to get replaced

Spaghetti Incident should get more attention live IMO. I'm not talking about adding more covers to their sets, but rather switch out some NITL covers with songs like Down On The Farm, Ain't It Fun and Human Being.

Edit: Human Being might not fit Axl's voice too well these days, but the other two should be very OK. Maybe even bring in Duff on the chorus of Ain't It Fun, idk..

100%

Down on the Farm is one of Axl's best vocal performances. Tremendous.

Axl Rose is too self conscious about his weight/appearance to do normal band things like music videos and photoshoots and this could possibly be the biggest obstacle in Axl releasing new music.

When did Axl last do a magazine interview / photo shoot?!

I don't remember seeing Axl in anything from around the time of Chinese Democracy. I didn't start buying music magazines until around 2004.

Last magazine photoshoot/interview he did was in 2006 IIRC for an Italian magazine.
