  1. GNR fans everywhere will forever owe a debt of gratitude to Myles Kennedy. In a pre-reunion world where it looked like Axl/Slash would never share the stage again he was responsible for Slash being able to revisit the GNR catalog again in ways he hadn't been able to in the 15+ year period after he left the band. GNR is a notoriously hard band to cover without sounding like bad karaoke, so Slash was essentially limited over the years to the "easy" ones like Brownstone and It's so Easy that can be more easily handled. Myles range however let him thread that needle of having a gu

  2. Don't know if this was posted before, but I feel like celebrating my 500 post with something really cool. I think it's a pretty sweet idea and something "the big 3" (+ Steven Adler please) could have done as sort of a Corona special. I enjoy this a lot more than the "selects" our little Mr. Wannabe Manager graces us with so far. Kudos to the guys who did that video, I really like it.

  3. If there's a guarantee that a shorter set would imply great vocals, than I would tend to a shorter set, too. But if the length of their shows isn't the reason for Axl's weakness then give me a 3 to 4 hour set. I wouldn't mind them doing some more VR or Slash songs considering the amount of CD songs they did. But yeah... shorten KOHD and RQ, and stop playing to much covers.

  5. People hating on Myles, yet Classic Rock magazine just awarded Alter Bridge’s Blackbird the 3rd best song of the 21st Century. Axl can only dream of making that kind of impact today.

  9. But it doesn't work very well. He can improvise as much as he feels like, but a lot of times his playing sounds disconnected from the song/ band. He's running his scales and licks but it makes no sense in the context of the song.

  10. I really doubt you have ever seen live recordings of Guns in their prime. Slash was always sloppy, more so back in the day than today. He is a motherfucking rock n roll guitarist. He never was as accurate as Bucket and Bumble but that's not what it is about in a rock n roll band.

  11. Then stopped and watched a fireworks display on the way - then at the show when people in the front row looked bored he had the audacity to tell them they should have went to see the fireworks instead Axl was a cunt of the highest order.

  12. @PatrickS77 my reference to Little White boys is that if they were little Black boys, aint no body would have said anything. Ex R.Kelly and I will explain that later.. I am not referring to anyone here as racially biased , but to the industry. None of us knew, worked for MJ, or was in the industry. People on the inside saw and knew he is always around these kids. Odd. Plus MJs Yes People protecting him in his Bubble knew this was odd. Oh, everybody on the inside knew about R.Kelly way back to having teenaged girls around going back to mid 1990s. He and Aaliyah got married with falsified

  13. MJ, I just cannot say. I am not posting about him, but I can understand why to Axl's thoughts way back then on this one situation. MJ , main problem was having Yes People around and living in a Bubble. This paling , best buds with little boys should have been a no for all obvious , common sense reasons from the beginning. Axl 's life is very similar to MJs and Elvis with Yes People and living in a Bubble. No, of course, Axl never was buddies with kids or lived in the Bubble to the extreme of MJ and Elvis. Thank goodness for NITL Tour because it broke his bubble in a sense even though all

  16. I watched it. It really shocked me how much Robson and Safechuck contradicted themselves from what they present to audiences vs what they say under oath. Not to mention the flat out lies in there (Abuse happening in the Neverland train station when it hadn't even been built yet, claiming to go on trips with MJ alone when Wade's entire family was with them, Robson claiming to being forced to testify by subpoena when he actually volunteered to defend MJ, ect). These are the kind of red flags that people need to look out for, when the story they are telling continues to evolve and contains detail

  19. I actually really liked the longer video with a handful of songs. Something fun for me to rock out to doing stuff in the house, or whatever. Almost felt like I was there while I was doing dishes looking at my computer screen as if it was a window out to the concert going on in my yard.

  22. Beautifully said, your whole post! Regarding this specific point, I remember seeing Slash with Myles opening for Ozzy years back and this was pre-reunion and it meant so much to be to get to hear Slash play Nightrain, PC, SCOM, etc. with a band again and get to hear his guitar on the songs I grew up being inspired by I remember that was shortly after seeing GNR and after the show I was mentally trying to imagine Slash's performance I just witnessed with Axl's vocals I saw a few months back to imagine a reunion in my head lol

  23. Totally agree. Ain't Life Grand is easily the best album Slash has been a part of since use your illusion IMO. Huge improvement from the first snakepit album (maybe because the whole lineup, sans Slash, was exchanged) .

You know what the cure is for you? Go out into the world and get into some adventures, live out this ideal of masculinity you covet. And I'm not talking in some f@ggot gap year way, be Robert Mitchum, be Ernest Hemingway etc, enlist in the Merchant Marines, see the world, drink fuckin' booze, do hard labour on the boats, dock in every town and shag yourself silly, take cargos of guns to the highest bidder i

  29. For the past few weeks, I've been working on a painting. On Sunday night, I left my daughter in front of the TV with her dinner, while I say in the next room. This was the first time I've done this. She was fairly quiet, so after dinner I popped in to check on her, to find that she'd helped with the painting. Thankfully it cleaned up beautifully.

  30. Yes So what you really mean is his playing style just doesn't suit you anymore. That's quite a different thing than his playing is sloppy with Frank vs with Fortus. Yes, he's way more precise now but he can still play with a loose feel. A lot of that has to do with sobriety.

  31. Not even close to my feelings, man. I would never discredit Slash in orden to defend Axl (and defend from what?!?!) I just express what I feel. Im a GnR fan, not only an Axl fan but also a Slash one. Axl wont ever sing again like he used to. And I havent seen any recent Slash performance where he could create in me what he still does in studio or what he did in the 90’s. My favorite Slash is the one playing DTJ from the illusion era (Paris 92 being my favorite) or the Godfather from that same show; or his smooth intro to KOHD; his live Nightrains (Tokyo 92, Argentina 92/93,

  33. Not to mention wrote and recorded another solo album which he shelved and because he believes songs have a shelf life he won't release it. (Wrote 2 more during quarantine). In addition to 2 albums with The Mayfield Four in 1999 and 2002 which aren't half bad albums either! He is quite the workhorse.

  34. I don’t much about this topic, but I believe it’s safe to assume there was a desire to see if they could generate people to come out and make accusations. If MJ was a pedophile then he would have done something his own children. Pedophiles cannot control those urges.

  36. -Remastered/remixed albums -Raw mixes without all the effects -Original demos of songs that made the albums -All unreleased songs and demos -Perfect Crime documentary -A full live Pro Shot concert that has never leaked, preferably with Izzy, 1993 as a backup -TSI?, adding a bonus of the available original songs with Izzy's work and other covers that didn't make TSI? or the UYIs -All official and promo videos -Compilation of TV appearances (November Rain at MTV Awards, Freddie Mercury concert) This one might be a pipe dream due to licensing issues

  37. I wouldn't be surprised if Axl is actually one of the few people out there who can relate to Michael Jackson with ease when it comes to his efforts to create a happy childhood for himself as an adult. Axl himself was well into his 30s when he started referring to Beta as his mother as if he was one of the Lebeis children. Similarly, Michael Jackson surrounded himself with families that he liked and behaved as if he was one of the children. I don't know if Axl ever took it quite as far as MJ, but overall it's easy to see the similarity.

  38. You just have to give the NITL live series a listen. Listen to Rocket Queen and you'll realize why Richard isn't the lead guitarist. Like I said before, technique isn't everything. He is able to run circles around Slash with the guitar, but he isn't able to create something relevant on his own. Tltr: Currently Richard is the best guitarist in GNR from a technical standpoint and he is also the most replaceable guitarist. He does his job but he isn't important in any way.
