how can you even defend their behaviour? its the worst fan service in rock, i know.

there are no explanations and communications whatsoever. just a shitty douchebag with a hat and t-shirt. 

No band in the world needs fans like you.

I would disagree in the worlds of Axl Rose " Truth is the truth hurts " Don't you agree?

What, like actually releasing music like any other band in the world? :lol:

I just hope they make something together that they’re happy with. Not I’ll work on this if you work on that approach. That’s a bit messy

Think the album is pretty much done and will be out for the next leg of the tour (march/april), they cant tour the NITL tour much longer without any new product.

I think they keep most secretly and maybe announce a single from out of nowhere - we can only hope!

O course they can.  who needs the new album when you can switch around 2 or 3 members and tour the same setlist he did past 20 years!?

the system worked in the past, no reason not to repeat the tactics.

Adler/Matt, Iz/Gilby vs new album?  Axl mind no doubt on choice.

I ordered one of those GN'R duffel bags on the merchandise website. Included with the bag is a t-shirt and hat. The reason I ordered it is that, while I'm probably wrong, is the possibility that maybe the t-shirt and hat could be promoting something new. Will I be displeased if it ends up being some t-shirt and hat that's been on the website for two years? Probably. But I took the chance because at least the duffel bag is a nice piece of memorabilia. Just maintaining some hope that we will get some new music this year.

Now, now, call it what it is. It's not a 'duffel bag' ....it's a 'laundry bag'. It's also the singularly most embarrassing thing the band have ever done. My heart sank when I got the email titled 'GNFNR durable laundry bag available now'. 

You'll be getting an AFD t shirt they haven't sold with it - to think otherwise is crazy talk!

I’d honestly be ok with that. A series of singles compiled into a new album further down the road, like what RHCP did with I’m Beside You throughout 2013.

EDIT: wait I just remembered; didn’t Bumblefoot suggest this idea back in 2013 and TB rejected it?

Yeah, that's a good way to do things. Especially in the streaming age that we're now in. It just makes sense and that means they're not gonna do it😂

Why cannot people just take what was said at face value. I don't get the concept of fans wanting the band to do what they want, when that's not going to happen. These guys are adults and can do as they please, when they want, and they can choose how they do those things. I often read comments on here, and don't understand why, some people get so court up in what and how the band or its members operate as individuals or as a band. 

They do things their way, always have, and the fans need to understand that, as what they say on a fan forum is not going to change anything the band or its members do. 

And yet we get fans, based on a simple interview, picking apart what was said, and than adding their own personal thoughts or turning the interview by Slash, in a completely different direction, that's not even relevant to the questions or answers provided by Slash. 

Just chill, sit back and wait. That's all us fans can do. 

What else is the forum for? Every one already kisses their asses in real life to their face. If they can't take some constructive criticism then f em!

slash's tone in the interview is one of an artists withdrawl 

he hates axl's ways and is bitting his lip on being tasked with re-recording and adding whatever original material he can muster but not encouraged to do so 

they are all little puppets in axl's wacky world - this would work if it was 1991 but axl don't bring that game no more

Bumbles suggestion to release a single at the start of each tour leg was the best idea idea Axl never did anything with. Would have created some buzz and kept his band together. But I suppose, it wasn't as if he had 3 or 4 cds full with material just waiting to be released ;)

As far as we know, there isnt. With the surfacing of the 20 discs we know there are a lot instrumental ideas, and 7 or so unreleased tracks with vocals. Including silkworms. 

The band sans Axl wrotte a lot of material, but little of it were actually worked by the man that should work on it. 

I honesly miss Velvet Revolver at this point and Im not even a fan of their output.

I am desenting in opinion from the thread. Fans. Fans of whatever or whoever, we like what teams, art , music, musical groups , and things we like no matter what.  Whatever moves you.                                                      Slash said they are going to put out new music, will add some surprises for the audiences for the fall shows, and will be touring early 2020 so far.  I take that as face value. I take it as truth.                             For me, the past music is what like because of personal reasons. Without even hearing the new cd which is not finished yet and  not available yet for purchase on line,  i don't think I 'll buy it or like it. Then again, I might love it. I don't want to hear politics or tenderness from this organization  of The Big 3 nor could I listen to a  RocketQueen type part 2. I don't live in the past. They would not make that kind of old music anyway. They don't live in the past. As someone said these are grown, adults and will do as they please. There is a huge market now for them too. The new cd will do very well, I predict with old and new fans.   Old ,dead subject, Izzy won't be a contributor to the new music. This is the business of The Big 3 and there is simply no need to do a split more than they each taking 1/3.

Can you really expect these almost 60 year olds to release something new?

These people peaked in the early 90's.

It's over now.

At least Slash and Duff (even Izzy) stayed productive all these years and had a good career. Snakepit was good, Velvet Revolver was great. Slash's solo stuff is ok. Duff's Loaded has its moments. And Izzy released a ton of albums, most of them are a bit average, but if you would take the best songs of each album and combine them it becomes impressive compared to Chinese Democracy.

A laid back Izzy ballad like Sweet Caress just feels so natural compared to everything on Chinese it's ridiculous.

What more can they do? Expectations are way too high now. We're all setting ourselves up for disappointment.

You said what I tried to say.

I don't believe for a second Slash peaked in the early 90s. Maybe true for the rest of the band though, especially Axl. Slash recorded some of his best riffs and solos as recent as 2014 IMO. I wish he hadn't wasted the Dirty Girl riff for SMKC though. Would have been a great opener for a new GNR album. Who knows how hard he wants to make a new GNR album great, I think he'll work really hard on it and we'll get something good out of them atleast one last time.

As far as full albums go, Slash did peak in the 90's imo. Isn't that how you measure it? when the quality is so consistent you get mostly brilliant work that fills an album in a short space of time?

Even if you disagree with that, I think Slash is still always full of ideas and great riffs come naturally for him. He can come up with entire instrumentals by himself and there's always at least a few really cool tunes, riffs, and solos on every Slash release.

Slash is a stage beast. He lives to play live with a crowd. Recording was always a second priority but I agree when it comes to a Guns album. I believe he'll work hard in the studio and the result could be great if he's truly inspired. But I'm not hoping for an AFD/UYI level of brilliance but it could still be worthy enough to release as Gn'R.
