Why? The superdeluxe had a very good bluray audio and a nice book with 4 cds. 

 

When the reissue first came out I bought the 2-disc set on CD and the four-disc set on iTunes. But now, I see on GnR.com that the price on the four-CD set was slashed down to only $50, so I’m thinking of getting that too. Is the book that it comes with worth it? I might keep the book and give the discs to my brother as a gift.

New single tomorrow? I mean Fernando., if there is a new album due in few weeks, you must release a single first!

Btw how reliable is this Brasky dude?

From another forum:

Super quiet for the last few months. Axl made his demands Universal did not want to go in that direction.

 

UMG owns the rights to the Next GNR album and will not comply with Axl’s ridiculous demands.

Fernando is still looked at as joke is what I’ve heard.

Again, as multi-millionaires, they can back off from any contract, even if they had to pay a large penalty for that. What could happen? Nothing. It's like, all right, you wanna terminate it? Pay us 10 million bucks. Fine, here you are and fuck off forever.

I just don't buy that "thay have troubles releasing stuff because of a recording company", etc. etc.

If they are having trouble, more leaks could speed things along. Seemed to work last time.

Any actual 'fan' of GNR close enough to the band to have access to demos, or even fully completed tracks, should 100% leak material on May 20th if nothing official materialises on that date.

We've been teased long enough now.

69 days until "The Next Chapter" guys :headbang:

Who owns the material though?

Do Universal not have first dibs on it seen as one of the companies they took over funded a large part of it's initial recording? I'm unsure how it works.

What material? Are you talking about "CD 2", aka demos that we don't know which condition they are in, or any new material? If Slash took his guitar combo na jammed with Axl in his studio, they are the only ones who own their material. What company/method they'll choose to release it through is a different question, but my point is, any quarter of a century old contract may be terminated as long as you're willing to pay for it. I've never heard of a major band who would keep having difficulties in 2010s/2020s because of an agreement concluded in the 90s...

The Chinese sessions in general. Prince had a bit of difficulty back in the day with Warner Bros. did he not? They probably could terminate their contract, but any material created while they/company they took over funded the sessions they must have something sorted where they have access to it? I'm unsure how it'll work, but I do believe that the majority of the next release under the Guns N' Roses name will be material from those sessions.

It would be a suicide at this historic moment

I surely hope not, we need new music from this particular band. Anyway, with the amount of money they have and with the lawyers they can afford, nothing could be a problem - that's the logic I've been following. The only thing stopping them temporarily from doing anything they friggin want now is the stupid virus.

Book looks good. It's actually a nice package at that price point (I recently picked one up for the same price) and think it's worth it. Definitely not worth more than that though. Should have been this price from the release really.

Thought of that too 🤔 At least a single. But at the same time it would really surprise me if it happened.

I'm also curious whether the better part of the world inevitably being quarantined would be a good or bad thing for album releases.  You'd think, if it's true that most new music is consumed or purchased digitally, that if people are staying indoors they'd be more prone to purchase an album they're curious about.  Might be the best thing GNR could do from that standpoint.

Yes, that would be the logical thing to do, but as we’ve already established; in the world of GnR, logic doesn’t apply!

There is definitely not anything new planned. Knowing GNR, they may say there was going to be and they had to indefinitely delay it to due to the pandemic though.

Maybe Mexico will be the last show... and the next ones would be reschedule?

Chile n Argentina shows in Lolla are postponed.

Maybe with this corona shit, the next shows would have a new album out.

There's a better chance of finding toilet paper at your local big box store tomorrow than there is of a new album spontaneously dropping.
