Melissa will probably be the first member of the current line-up to leave the band, due to the lack of new material. 

She’ll put out a song with Izzy!

The 2006/07 was pretty exciting. The band and Axl were on fire, and the new songs were an awesome preview of things to come.

If it wasnt for Bumblefoot and Frank the 06 lineup would be great.

Classic GNR in 2006 would have been so potent and musically relevant... Slash was still smoking, Axl still showed skin. 

Could have skipped Libertad and CD and just went for UYIII.... ahhh but whatever!

91, 2006, 2016!

For me, Bumblefoot was one of the best things about '06-'10 (even onward to 2014). His playing was dynamic, exciting, fun, faithful to the spirit of the band and he went above and beyond (in spite of the limitations Axl's inflexibility placed on him) to play what the fans wanted to hear and advance things creatively. I don't really know what logic marks him out as the weak link in the band.

He was pretty hit or miss in 2006, but from 2009-2014 I agree with you.

(It's understandable though, knowing he didn't have a long time to learn all the songs).

That's the one thing that nudges 2006/2007 era out for me, to be honest. Had he played the way he did from '09-'14 on THAT tour, holy fuck!

Axl's voice sounded absolutely incredible (and I daresay better than 2006) at its highest points in 2010.

 

Nothing we've had since 2010 has been quite at that level.

Closing '91 Toronto with Welcome To Jungle for the third encore... 

I think that would be my show to see if I could go back in time.

A Jungle reprise feels weird but also pretty cool. When I think of long set lists and amazing shows my mind always goes to the last Forum show of ‘91 but I think I’ll give this one a shot too

Yeah it's too bad all the videos I've seen are like 80's camcorder quality.

The '91 shows are so different from '92... I wish we had an official release for each year of UYI. Take my fucking money it's right here!

‘91 was definitely the most volatile of the UYI tour, but when it was going, it was really going; although you could say that about ALL of this bands history 😂 it’s peaks musically are ridiculous, especially live. I honestly love all the eras except for ‘11-‘14 really. 

‘91

’93

’87

’10

’16

’06

if I had to choose

I think I was distracted by how cool Axl/DC was during 2016.... I tuned out on NITL after the initial "throne" shows which were pretty lackluster and then didn't tune in again until late 2017 when Axl's voice wasn't as strong... didn't realize some of those 2016 GNR shows were pretty damn solid, lineup gripes aside... "all things considered."

I think late 1987, summer of 1988 and June - August 1991 is where the band was at its best. 

There are just so many amazing shows, Hammersmith Odeon, Chicago and Madison from 1987. Felt Forum, Seattle and Shoreline from 1988, Philadelphia, Shoreline, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Wembley from 1991. 

I fail to see how the band ever sounded more powerful.

Cant agree with that, I see Bumblefoot as a generic poor mans Bucket.
