Crashdiet was a west Arkeen song right?

 

I've been listening to this crap new wild side live album and they say it's a new song, that is about the death of razzle (Hanoi rocks) via the crash caused by Vince Neil.

 

Anyone have any insight into the song?

I just listened to it. It's really bad vocally. Axl sings the song 10,000 times better. I wish GNR would do this song  again.

I'm a massive WildSide fan and a couple of years back I messaged Benny Rhynedance (the guitarist of WildSide) on Facebook and asked more about their cover of Crash Diet, this is what he had to say about it:

And when I said that I actually preferred the WildSide version of the song because of the ending he said:

When I said that their cover in my opinion was far superior to the Asphalt Ballet version he said this:

From the conversations I had with him he felt like a really cool and down to earth guy, would love to hear @Gambit83 interview him on the podcast! I think he would be a great guest on the show! :)

Those guys come across as unprofessional tbh. Has anyone seen the bio that they wrote for themselves on Discogs? :lol: In everything that they say/write they always come across as really bitter about getting dropped from their label and bitter towards bands that actually found success. They seem to have an absurdly high view of themselves, I assume because the album no one bought goes for about 30 bucks on ebay, which they never fail to mention.

An interview with any of them should be quite interesting.

I read somewhere that Axl rejected their Crash Diet cover as he felt that something they included in the outro was disrespectful, but I didn't notice (or remember) anything that could be referring to. Can anyone fill me in?

The demo with axl on has his vocals hard panned to either the left or right, which is good because its easy to create an instrumental and an accapella from it.

This Wilde Side version sucks. 

I tried to cover this one with a friend and I think it's half decent.

Crash Diet is a good song. The main riff is what makes it cool, BUT as with Bring it Back Home, some of the tempo changes are a little off. The pause that goes into the Guitar solo is awkward. Bring it back Home also has several changes that are abrupt and don't fit well, but they are just demos after all.

Great guitar, love the riff in the chorus. Don't like the breakdown riff - I feel the song changes so weirdly at that point into thrashy metal. Axl's vocals are top-notch, especially his intro into the second chorus. Just a kick-ass song.

The pause in Crash Diet most likely was because they had a drum machine and needed to speed up the tempo.

nope

I heard that he provided backing vocals for that version, like he did with The Outpatience song. Or is that not the case?

yes but without Slash. For me the song I would love to have on the new album

 

"GNR" version is pushing it right? Is anyone besides Axl and West even on it? Does anyone have Slashs opinion on the song?

No, just Axl, West & a drum track far as I know. I remember Slash saying something like they wouldn't consider the song it because it was something Axl & West did long time ago and it really didn't involve GN'R anyway. As I recall.

Just as I thought. That song is really un-Slash like and I can see why he wouldn't even try to "make it his own". Too bad becuase it's actually a really great song, and it's cool how legendary it has become in fan circles. Wish they would maybe record it for a new album in the future, would be a cool tribute to West Arkeen who died tragically.
