Perhaps - Full Leak Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS**

Recommended Posts

Hmm interesting song.  Definitely love the style in which Axl sings, agree that it's very UYIish.  Many parts of the way Axl sings and the effects on his voice remind me of Locomotive, especially from 2:50-3:05.  Also, the chorus is pretty cool.

 

HOWEVER, I can't help but get an N'Sync or Backstreet Boys vibe from the whole song.  I think it's that piano riff and the Hey Heys.  If I wasn't getting this vibe, I would say this song is killer, but I just can't shake the boy band vibe from this track.  Hope the finished product gets rid of the piano riff.  Maybe replace it with an altered version on guitar.  LOVE SOG though.

Where did we actually find out that was The General anyways? I don't remember anyone ever saying that, it was just sort of like one day everyone knew it was The General. 

IIRC, the Guns N' Roses Twitter account confirmed the orchestral piece played before shows was The General.

That is a good question actually haha I never really thought about that, where did it come from?  It is just that the orchestration was our best guess so our guess became "fact"?

I get a Faith No More vibe on this track.  Like "Everything's Ruined" off Angel Dust.

I was always skeptical of this theory until these songs started leaking and it was clear the music was there. Axl was ready to roll. They gambled by punting, hoping slash would return, never thinking that Axl would legitimately hold out for nearly 10 years.

How the fuck does this song not make the album? The only explanation was that he honest to God thought he was going to release two albums.

 

Maybe Axl was always right ;)

I don’t think so, it wasn’t on any of the discs from what I remember. 

Could be under a working title? My guess is Devious Bastard if it's about child abuse as someone said.

I addressed this on @Gambit83's podcast today. It's something that has to be done currently. Sorry :/

Are you doing the pod solo or with Rick to discuss all the latest shenanigans?

I listened to it already, though I must admit I skipped the first 10 minutes or so of the podcast as I just wanted to hear some GNR fans talk about the leaks :lol:

I'd ask to join you but even if you let me it would just be a stream of swearing about how good this is lol. I love the chorus part where it picks up oomph.

@DieselDaisy are you liking these leaks, old boy?

Today’s my birthday so I guess thats it :lol:

Perhaps is very cool, State Of Grace is not bad but vocals are pretty lazy.. that’s not saying much, it’s just a demo after all tho.

If they were using it as an intro in 2001 surely they’d have at least a rough instrumental track done for it from these sessions not much more than a year earlier.
