  1. remember a few years ago when Slash went over to Axls house, supposedly to record something? it probably went like this: Axl: hey Beta is out for a few hours. want to go up to my room and smoke weed? we can get high and prank call Vince Neil? or maybe Stephanie Seymour? Slash: um, you know everyone has caller ID now, right? Axl: idk what caller ID is. haven't used a phone without Team Brazil permission since 94. Slash: I thought you put a recording studio in this place? Axl: I told Beta my room is a recording studio. she hat

  6. That's called empathy, my friend! She has the same connection as Erin Everly, Mandy Brixx, Linda Johnson, Rene Suran, Sasha or Perla. I don't know if you know, but Stephanie is featured in the "Don't Cry" and "November Rain" video, and Dylan, her older son in "Estranged".

  8. Sup ya'll, I've been a member here forever but never really posted my art. I figured with my latest project, it was probably worth posting here. I've been studying WPAP style design lately (artpop basically) and wanted to make one of Axl. I doubt he'd ever see it, considering how much art is made of the man, but I'm so proud of it, I'd love to share it with fellow GN'R fans. Hope you dig it! Here's a link to my Instagram post of it, I'd love it if you would check that out https://www.instagram.com/p/CKPuYAOBIiR/

  9. What he said above. I was under the impression that it was essentially an amp version of the GT-1000 or what have you. Either way, all the more impressive that you've got such a killer sound at 0.5 watts! Be careful not to speak that too loudly on a guitar forum.

  12. The Katana is a solid state modeling amp. I believe the amp models are the same as the four main ones in their GT1000. The ARES models. I could be wrong. Either way, it sounds great. I would confidentiality play a gig with a Katana and not feel like I was compromising. It's great you can buy a brand new amp under $300 dollars that can handle that

  13. So if we take Kentucky in the 2020 where McConnell won with 58% to Amy McGrath on 38% and the Libertarian candidate on 4%. If we assume that a Trumper candidate could win 20%(ish) then you conceivably turn Kentucky and many other hardcore red states blue just by splitting the GOP vote. I don't really think he's going to go ahead and do it but this would be huge. He's probably made her into a table lamp by now,

  15. I said this some where else. You know, about that whole issue of whether Axl or the band should be opening their mouth about politics. I have to cuss or thank GNR a little bit for this. I reflect on what Axl said about politics and his lack of involvement some years back. Totally agreed, then Trump came along. Always thought Trump was something I wanted nothing to do with for the obvious reasons. Not that he's easy to ignore but then GNR started in. They get my attention, clued in I better stop ignoring Trump and get in on what's going on. Totally, blaming Trump though on why I can

She looked great too with the dove and olive branch in her hair. J. Lo brought tears to my eyes. Anyway, wonderful day for a new President of the US. I actually have hope now!

  27. The album coming out between 2000 and 2002 would have led to a much higher chance of more GNR albums coming out following it; even if the album would have sucked more than the final 2008 product, we could have gotten more material out in the long run because of it.

  31. Thanks! But is the Katana a modeller or just a competent solid state? There is no real amp simulation other than the different channels (crunch, lead, brown etc.). The variety in the tones is achieved through the booster pedals (for Slash tones, I'm using the Guv'n model, and for Robin I'm bouncing between some fuzz or a Tube Screamer pedal) and EQ on the software companion. The preamp is analogue, and the idea is that it mimics some of the valve characteristics, so it reacts more organically than a pure simulation like the Code. Funny thing is that I live in a small apartment, so I neve

  33. I think that the "radical left" thing is a bit overblown. I just don't think that there are enough on the fringes to make up a credible left split. Trump is unique in that his base is genuinely big and solid enough to cause the GOP a massive headache if he leaves and takes them with him. I'm not sure if it would have as much of an impact on future Senate races however. I'm not sure if you can win a senate seat with a plurality of votes in any states or if you need >50% as in Georgia (maybe @downzy can shed a little light on that one?). If that's the case then there's always the chance

  36. For sure, the Helix is still my favorite and most useful piece of gear I own. High quality digital tones absolutely match any amplifier out there. Especially when recorded or in a live situation. I just wanted an amp because I like them, and the Jubilee was a grail amp so why not? Another toy in the box. Plus you can use all this stuff together and it always integrates and sounds great. The Katana takes pedals well and the Jubilee takes the emulated effects well and vice versa. It is a good time to buy gear

  37. @ZoSoRose I agree. My first amp was an MG15 and it was perfectly respectable for a budding guitarist, and I quite literally used to carry it through the snow to bring it to school when I'd play and it never failed on me. I think some people just have some unrealistic expectations because "this $100 amp doesn't sound the same as a true vintage JMP" or "iT's nOt tUbE" and it's like... well no shit. I'm also with you on the low volumes thing. That was a huge factor in why I ditched the Vox. In general, I find that Marshall's perform well at low volumes anyways. I don't use a lot of gain

  38. I'm thinking zero chance for even 1 album in 2021. and I think Axl does, in fact, has a ton of material from the Chinese era. I remember DJ saying how Axl played him new shit he came up with that DJ thought was great in hotel rooms during the tours for example. It only make sense that Axl has accumulated a lot of great tunes over the years. A lot of great musicians/composers worked for him as well but again... this is a version of Gn'R with Slash in it. why would you not inject as much Gn'R identity to it when you're trying to make a Gn'R album? Slash is inherently more Gn'R compared to a

  41. I wasn’t talking about the riot on the capitol. My issue is with the overwhelming belief by Republicans that the election was stolen, that Biden has no legitimate claim to the office of the presidency. As I said, Trump owns a lot of that, but to absolve the entire Republican party and its supporters for the big lie is wrong. Nobody forced them to believe that the emperor had no clothes. This goes beyond the normal confines of rank partisanship. In fact I would say it’s part of a longer story that was touched off by the response to LBJ signing the 1964 Civil Rights Act, continued wit

  42. Songs like shacklers and riad, would have met better receptions in 2000 than in 2008 for sure. Plus there would have been a lot less meddling in the songs, with the layers and mixing. so the album probably would have been more successful. but the only 2 with radio play potential were chidem and better, in that era or 2008.

  44. Should have been done in 2017, as part of the AFD anniversary. They could have done 2 shows, because thats all Axl would have wanted to do, to be "accomodating' to the fans. Most likely one in NYC andf the other in LA. AFD back to front and maybe some of the stuff on Lies included.
