When did the original 15 or so second clip of Hard School/Jackie Chan leak? And who was the leaker who said "Checkmate" upon leaking it? Was it around 2006? I found this old 2006 thread where it's mentioned people were debating whether it was even GNR back then:

It was 2006 because the guy who had it came to one of the shows and tried to extort money from Merck

He had an internet radio show where he played it if I'm remembering right - people recorded the sample from his live stream

That doesn't sound right at all. Better, IRS, Twat all leaked in '06 and Checkmate was more recent like 5 years ago.

Just playing devils advocate but has anyone confirmed anything new? Werent the two tracks already out there ? Could he be positioning for trades and trolling everyone ? Why would someone in virginia have a locker with gnr Holy Grail. I certainly am no expert on this stuff and havent followed the forums in a long time but just seems fishy

Can someone who has the songs at least write them down as sheet music so we can have the songs without leaking them? :lol:

Then we can all record them on our own and share them :lol:

I'm going to give another example of a similar situation

There was a WWE wrestling match between Tom Magee and Bret Hart in 1986 that was talked about for years because after Vince McMahon saw it, he yelled "THAT'S MY NEXT WORLD CHAMPION!" at Tom Magee backstage. Unfortunately, the match was only good because of Bret Hart, and Tom Magee turned out to be a horrible wrestler. It never aired on television and the tape was presumed lost.

A few months ago, a woman who had transferred Bret Hart's personal VHS collection to DVD over a decade ago went through some boxes and found a VHS copy of the match.

She posted a short clip online to prove its legitimacy, and within a few weeks there was a live event setup for WrestleMania weekend where Tom Magee and Bret Hart would talk about the match before a ticketed audience, and at the end of the show, they would debut the full match for the live crowd.

WWE found out about this and decided to undercut the organizers of the live show. They contacted the woman, gave her a bunch of money for the tape, and they aired the match as a special on WWE Network a few days before the live event.

 

the match was indeed great for 80s wrestling. unfortunately megaman only had this one great match.

Yeah I remember those leaks from feb and march 2006, but I just checked zombux list and matches my notes. The Checkmate excerpt leaked on may 2006 along with TWAT and IRS '99

Bret Hart is doing one of those Q&A tours with Inside the Ropes. I had tagged my brother in law on their advertisement for the Glasgow show. He wasn't entertained, telling me he'd summarise the evening for me without parting with money.

"I made Tom Magee look good and loved cheating on my wife."

:lol:

I'm expecting nothing now. 

If something comes along....great, but I really think we're done here. At least for the present time.

Maybe I have my dates messed up. I do remember someone asking Axl on here about Checkmate, he said it's called Jackie Chan or something like that. That was in '08 I believe.

When Checkmate leaked people debated for years about its legitimacy Basically until Axl's chat on here. 

Catcher In the Rye, IRS 99, TWAT and Better all leaked around then and everyone knew they were legit. So it made everyone super crazy, cynical, optimistic and just peaked the whole Chinese Democracy craze, imo. 

There were so many snippets out there that people were trying to pass off and sell/trade for others prior to CD's release. People were trading anything they could or passing other artist's music off as GnR.  I remember hearing Alkaline Trio's Time To Waste during this. I ended up with Biffy Clyro's Mountains way before it was released from all of this too. 

It was a great time to be a teenager on the internet lol. Hopefully that gives a little context to why people doubted Checkmate being a Guns song. The hunt for songs was the best part of CD, and it's probably why everyone is so geeked now. This could be a last hoorah for a lot of curiosities.

And why would he? If people keep coming to these shows he's going to do the same shit for the next 20+ years as well. 

Touring and merch pay the big money, particularly reunion tours. Releasing new music has no benefits for any of them anymore. Nobody buys music, streaming doesn't pay shit, and it won't be as good as it would've when they were in their 30's.

Because he is a musician?

And as a musician who is worth more than a hundred million dollars, one would hope his reason for being in the business wasn’t solely just to make money, but to create the best “art” that he could. 

It’s odd that people bash pop artists for vine sell outs and just trying to make money.....but then people say that Axl should do the same thing. 

I guess I’m just old school. I miss the Axl that released four albums in five years. The young rocker who once said he would hate to be in a band that just played and relied on their old hits.

My good friend was the producer for that WWE Network special. He kept me up to date on the entire process. It’s amazing what’s out in the world and what other people have in their possession that nobody knows about.

I doubt Axl is worth more than one hundred million dollars, though he's probably not struggling for money anymore these days. This is a guy who couldn't even pay Pittman $125k cira 2011/12 (and wrote him a promissory note), toured in 2006 to continue to fund CD and sold 20 years of publishing rights to Sanctuary back in 2005. 

But yes, I agree he should continue to release the (probably 50+) completed songs he has in a vault, or in this case, Tom Zutat's locker. He won't, however, because he doesn't have the same fire he did when he said he wanted to bury Appetite, and also because there's no reason for him to do so unless he gets forced to. He claimed a large part of the delay for CD was getting the right promotional strategy going, then didn't do any actual promo once it was released. Tbh I'm fairly certain we wouldn't have gotten CD if it wasn't for Dr. Pepper/Kaneda essentially forcing his hand.

Sad day for Guns fans. It’s a shame that only a few select people will hear these songs. Devastating. What a shame.

I reckon something will come one way or another but who knows from what source. Anyone who leaks it is leaving themselves wide open to getting their ass sued so I think it’s understandable at this time

Its unbelievable this pathetic band (sorry not band, AXL) is so fucking insecure and hung up over 20 year recordings. Even if he wants to release them with this lineup, its just pathetic he can't let go of ideas from 20 YEARS AGO. What kind of artist is that lame? Axl Rose. No other credible musician would give a shit over demos from 2 decades ago
