  1. No worries. But best to send your appreciation to @highvoltage who unfucked my sad efforts to get everything up and running again. Real heroes don't often wear capes; some times they are masters of forum software

  2. My LP was FINALLY delivered a few minutes ago! Hooray! No FBI symbol on the back and the records look perfect. I'm excited to spin it later and I hope it lives up to the hype of no inner groove distortion!

  5. They're playing both anthems before every week one game. I feel it divides us instead of bringing us together. Two anthems representing two separate groups rather than one anthem for all Americans.

  6. You're probably right, but I truly believe there is nothing to gain by holding back any new release. They could release one or two songs, just to test the waters and see what reaction they get. This isn't rocket science. It's art. Just share it with your fans already, Axl!

  7. It's a decent attempt at showing people not to "panic" as much over the virus since most of the other information slants the "other way". The truth is (as far as we can tell); - The actually mortality rate is around 1-2% https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality (Higher than that in less developed countries) - It's likely they are using total population vs mortality rate for Covid but are not using that same ratio for the other viruses (classic misinformation propaganda). - Even at a mortality rate of only 1% Covid is 1000% (10x) more deadly than the common fl

  8. By that logic you should be sceptic of every paid profession. If you make money baking bread, you are part of the economy. You are selling your expertise. So by your logic you don't trust that bread and thinks it's a shoe.

  11. You're absolutely right about the current situation regarding classic rock. World's changed and people aren't interested in those nostalgia acts as they once were. But thats only an excuse for somebody who doesn't want to release anything and for somebody who is searching for excuses. For a band like GNR. Nobody would release rock music anymore if they all had the same idea. Music is still art and an artist's first priority should be to express his art to his fans. Not only if there is a certain amount of fans interested, you know? Do it for your self and do it for the kids out

  15. 1) I think that a great many posters from countries whose news media and cultures intersects with US media and politics know all about the issue of gun violence in Chicagos minority communities. Its been ongoing for some years and decades. Also, if we're playing Media Issue Olympics, why arent you aghast that the liberal media isnt covering the fact that Chicago is still run by the mob, 24/7? 2) There is a clear delineation between State violence and person-to-person violence. And State violence can even be legal - such as the death penalty. But we are talking about State violence that st

  16. There is one massive historic error in your accusation which indicates that it is near* impossible that I could've defended slave traders of the Confederacy. The transatlantic slave trade was prohibited in the United States in 1808. The Confederate States of America was founded 1861. *Some illegal slaving did occur via Florid thereafter, ending 1821 with Florida's statehood.

  18. You always take the racist position without fail. You literally spent days defending statues of racists and slave-traders. You constantly decry efforts by Americans to reduce racism, ridiculing such efforts as fake wokery without making any sincere or genuine effort to understand the experiences and attitudes of those who live in a very different world than you and I. It's exhausting listening to you defend the racist contingent day in and day out. The sophistry of your posts do not hide from the underlying opinions that are apparent to anyone who is familiar with your post

  19. LOL. You're the one resorting to months old arguments about 1930s Germany because you don't have a better response or justification for your absurd, moronic, tired and racist positions. You're the only one on here who finds a need to constantly defend the whites. You spent how many posts trying to defend and justify the south's decision to leave the US? How many more posts have you made defending statues of racists all in the name of "history." Your racism shows in almost every topic that touches on these issues. It's a constant theme with you.

  22. I just put on a unmuted (TV channel muted boos in interests of woke) clip and it lasts significantly longer than 5 mins! More like 20 mins. It consists of two anthems sung by singers adorned in t-shirts featuring a drugged-up armed robber, before some cringe worthy unity thing. I also heard a rumour that they're commemorating a rapist by displaying his name on their helmet, which is utterly sickening if true - I cannot really see. I'd boo. Any moral person would.

  23. U2 were much bigger than Nirvana. Nirvana is huge because of Cobains suicide. Nevermind is a classic album, though. But, had Nirvana lived on the band would have never been bigger than an arena band at best. AIC, STP, and Soundgarden never became arena rock bands. Pearl Jam built a following of their own and Pearl Jam are clearly the biggest band from that era. Nirvana would have broken up. Aside from St. Anger Metallica never lost a step in terms of visibility and selling out arenas and stadiums.

  31. I agree with this! Each and every word! Also, his rhythm playing on the verses of Chinese is all over the place, it sounds like a guitar player who has a vague idea of the song just going for it... I mean, it doesn't take a genius to know that CD is not a jam record. Every part on the album, no matter how crazy somehow links together with something else. Playing Chinese without the fretless just doesn't sound right to me though... I'm 10000% positive Gibson would have made him one, or one of the 100 companies Richard works with could have made him one... they definitely weren't shor

  32. Hit the nail on the head right there. If Slash wants to write a new solo to these songs, fair play. But he doesn't do that, he improvises them nightly, and it shows. All his solos on CD songs are meandering, boring, and pointless. I would honestly take Ashba's take on the TIL solo over damn near any rendition of it I've heard from Slash, and I don't say that lightly. But at least Ashba crafted the solo and made it his own thing, even if it sucked. Slash can't even put in the effort to do that. The lone exception to how I feel on his CD solos is the title track, that's fine. And not coincidenta

  33. The problem IMO is that Slash's work on stuff like TIL and Catcher is just not good. I would prefer if he stayed true to the originals, but I'm ok with him creating something entirely new. The thing is that he's obviously capable to deliver an awesome solo, maybe even better than the originals. Instead, he just play whatever, almost as if there was no real song structure or melody going on behind it.

  36. The history isnt going anywhere. Pictured is, in fact, a statue. And if you think about it, history has to be in the spot light prior to the removal of a statue on the grounds of historical actions. So, your thinking is flawed here. Also you are defending a Frenchman! Poor form, sport.

  37. It may very well be it. And there may be more, as Trump and Peter Brant, her husband, have been childhood friends and it also seems Trump had known her before through other channels: https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-stat/graphics/politics/trump-archive/docs/peter-brant.pdf But later Stephanie didn't like Trump, according to Brant: And then Trump got involved in their marriage:

  39. It is not just hope. You are all very pessimistic. There are thousands of evidences that have been leading this to happen: interviews with 4tus, slash, susan, duff, fernando. Knowing that they have already started some work on the new album means that they will probably release something in a maximum of 3-4 years. A bad experience, like that of Chinese Democracy does not dictate the rule of events, mainly because the return of the old members creates a certain pressure under the band and the expectation that they know has existed since they returned. But, in fact, the question of whether the

  41. Yeah, that's probably it. No album and in a couple of years they will say "We tried but it just wasn't happening because of this and that and blablabla." It's all about the money and probably has been since the reunion started.

  44. I read the book, it is fun and easy to read. Sorum sounds bitter about how things have gone, he feels betrayed by his pals. first with Guns and then with Velvet. But somehow i can not let it go, there is something Sorum says that catches me........ It doesend feels right this hole reunion thing...... When you start adding up, with the Adler story then Izzy about splitting the loot..... Now Sorum his book. Its all albout the money...... When they make a album, that does not make the expectation we al have. They lose a lot more, when they keep going on like now, and say yeah there

  45. Its not a joking matter for the vast aamount of flora and fauna, I always think of the animals in situations like this. The situation has got much worse and again I hope Axl and his household are ok as well as everyone else in the area. For anybody that is wondering what he is doing well this could be a bit of a clue.

  46. I'm thankful that this thing leaked, at least one dude who delivers something, even if it's mostly self-righteous gossip. My standards have become pretty low by now, I know. But I still prefer that "book" over any SMKC-record or NITL-BluRay.
