gonna agree they all sounded like a bad cover band other than axls scream that he got its a dying cat killing mickey throughout - we all want deep cuts - but i had a feeling this song just wouldn't be possible, the entire song is rasp and any hints he would go for it didn't come to fruitition 

why is that he could bring it for shoot to thrill and back and black but for dead horse no-

this is the gold standard 

 

2016 - preperation for the shows.

My thoughts are he had vocal laser surgery prior to starting NITL. He was fitter. He had a vocal coach he practiced with for acdc/gnr. He worked his ass off to practicing and learning songs for acdc. He was motivated.

2019 - Not preparing enough. Not as fit, heavier and older. Has not been seeing a vocal coach since 2016. Needs vocal laser surgery again from 3 years of touring. 

IMO

Side note that dead horse clip was half of his life ago. Great performance. No way he could compete with that.

axls guitar skills in 1993 were actually good enough to compose own songs.

Based on Axl going up to talk with Duff right after debuting Locomotive and now Dead Horse, we can infer that Duff is the one really pushing for the deep cuts. Maybe more than Slash?

I know Axl doesn't rehearse, he'is fat etc etc etc..... But it is what it is and at least we got something... I was born in 94 and when GNR blew my mind there were not GNR anymore. And I never tought a reunion was possible... So living this moment, at least 3 of them.. Playing Estranged, Locomotive, Shadow of your love, Coma, Dead Horse, Out ta get me, My michelle..... Its amazing! I love this moterfuckers

Probably.

I think Slash is like "ugh, I have to learn another 30yr old song. Man, this is getting in the way of writing the next SMKC record."

I just got to really listen to it. 

Other than Axl missing his line at the beginning, I spent the first couple of minutes thinking "Come on now, this isn't THAT bad". 

Then the solo happened.....lol

Slash is the one and only reason the song got screwed up from the solo on IMO. 

Weird, right? It had to have been him and Duff who suggested the song, I doubt Axl did- so as per Slash’s usual standard you’d think he’d have played a solo that sounds like he at least practiced or rehearsed it more than a couple of times.

Well... it wasn't horrible, but they didn't fucking rehearse it enough. :D

Now that I think about it, it sounded like they didn't rehearse it at all and just winged it as memorized from the 90s. Still awesome, and hopefully it will be played again just to improve the reputation.

thats the only reason why it gets a pass i think its the first time they winged a song in the set list since NITL began without having prior confirmations or rehearsals

He clearly had a brain freeze moment.

Yep. Axl screwing it up wouldn't be anything to write home about, but Slash messing the solo like this? One would think he'd improvise better... it actually sounded like he started to play a different tune's solo in the second part, ha ha.

I think he got himself totally and completely lost. We're just not used to that type of thing from Slash is all lol.

Funny how Locomotive is already old news! 🤣

I was watching Meegan’s streaming, so I couldn’t hear it very well, but they looked much more comfortable.

Two brain freezes if you count him coming in similarly off-key for the melodic lead that takes us back to the 'acoustic' part for the end.

I agree. Slash botched it up pretty badly in several different places. Axl did a commendable job imo.

Always find it curious how he sounds so much better on original Guns material than he does on the CD material. You'd think his voice would be better suited to the more recent material, but he really nails shit like SOYL and yet hasn't pulled off a decent Better or TIL in years (thank God he put us out of our misery with that one!).

Right? But then, what do we know. Maybe he went in his head "holy shit, this is the first time we’re playing this since 93" and his brain started producing some fake heroin sensations... Who knows. :D

Locomotive can be seen on Meegan’s Instagram. It’s the live video that follows Dead Horse.
