  1. Surprised that there wasn't a thread for this. Looks pretty good. Guess we'll find out tomorrow.

  2. The "next album" has been ready for over ten years. Any "work" on it will be adding contributions by newer members, probably akin to Bumble and Frank's bits on the 2008 album. I doubt any songs on it will actually be "new".

  3. maybe but that's irrelevant to me as it won't take away from the personal experience of listening to a new Gn'R album.

  4. I think they haven't been rushing the songs for some time now. I've been noticing steadier tempos since like 2017 or something. In addition to it, when I listen to Reykjavik 2018 IEM's, I can clearly hear a click track right after the end of Paradise City, so it's pretty much a past issue. However, I find all this tempo subject so silly. Lots of people who complain about it loves listening to Ritz 88 and don't say a word about the rushed songs - Adler even forgets to play the last bar of It's So Easy! The same goes for Taylor Hawkins' version. I think it's much more a matter of drum tone or EQ, although it has got slightly better since 2019 North American tour.

  5. I choose to believe it will at some point in this decade. No pressure. We'll get more live shows, maybe they'll play Hard School and introduce unplayed UYI tunes to the set and new covers/solo spots in the meantime, but if Axl didn't manage to release anything in 12 years, surely it must mean his process is slow and he won't release it until all the conditions are met for a new Guns album to see the light of day. Once you accept there's nothing you can do to change this headstrong approach and that the rest of the band pretty much waits for Axl to be ready then it's easier to see how this works plus minimal interaction with fans and very few Axl interviews. Doesn't mean there is no real intention there to release what Dizzy called "a shitload of material". what if Axl sees the Guns catalog as unfinished business? I hope this is the case and it gives him the motivation to end it at least with Slash and Duff in the band, just seems appropriate.

  6. They opened for GNR (and SMKC) in 2019... that's pretty much all you can hope for with up and coming bands 'working with' GNR.

  7. Work for me, but it's kind of fun work, so I'm good. My oldest daughter is at her dad's, so no driving around for me this weekend. Just me and my little baby girl (who I don't think I've mentioned here) We might go out for a stroll. Nothing more to do here during corona anyway. The weather should be good, only a bit chilly. Bars and restaurants are supposed to open again in two weeks, but I think I'll just wait it out until I get my vaccine.

  8. I've listened to the album a couple times now, and it's a bit underwhelming. It's on pretty much on par with their EP. There's not any 'bad' songs but there's not really any standouts either. I guess No Warning and Gypsy might be the highlights, but there's nothing on here that's better than Fire Away or Rolling 7's...

  10. Cute, how you cling on to the hope that you will ever get to hear CD2.

  11. CD is described as being a sampler between the two albums worth of completed songs at or near the time of release. I expect CD2 to be similar in overall quality. We've practically heard half of it so far. I wish they would have released both with the Bucket, Robin, and Brain stuff 100% intact, but sadly this is unlikely, except for perhaps as bonus material, eventually. I enjoyed CD so I'm sure I'll like CD2.

  12. He must because it would be near impossible not to have some sense of what was going on. Like I've never played a stage 1/10 the size and sometimes depending on the drummer and band positioning I haven't been able to hear them and it's a clusterfuck😅 best forgotten!!! The size of those nitl stages must mean there's bssic mixed being bussed around the stage, has to be!

  14. He opened for GNR at the Gorge in 2017. He was pretty good, I liked him better than Royal Blood. I'll check out the album when it's released.

  15. I think this is honestly the most reasonable outlook a GNR fan can have at this point, and agree completely. As in, if it happens, awesome. Will be a cool surprise whenever that announcement comes, if ever. If not, it is what it is. The 2016-17 hype has cooled way down, and on top of that is the undeniable way the pandemic has fucked up the music scene. So there's never going to be a scenario where it's commercially viable, no matter how great it is. Axl's gonna be 60 next year, and the others aren't far behind. It's literally something that would be a huge deal for GNR fans, and that's about it.

  16. It comes across like he thought the person was asking about pre-recorded backing tapes. And he’s responding “no we haven’t recorded new backing tapes - when we play it’s all live” !

  17. They should restart the tour after this lockdown in a small venue, maybe the troubadour, presenting a new album with a couple of new songs, to create the hype again... i know it's not 2016 anymore and the hype could not live up with the hype they created back then. but at least it would be s.th. different, as touring the way they do...

  19. Discovered this guy today, Ayron Jones, and what a fantastic find! Looking forward to the album coming out in May What a great sound, it’s a mix of RATM, Living Colour, blues rock, grunge, and so damn soulful. Really nice lead guitar in parts reminiscent of Slash. Just fantastic stuff.

  21. Didn't want to make a whole new thread for this but my latest video features my son and I talking about some of his favorite vinyl LPs. You can skip to the 12 minute mark to find the GN'R talk. If you watch the video, please leave a like on it

  22. A salary cap would actually be doing them a favour but only if it applies to every club in every country. Money in football is only as ridiculous as it is through clubs paying ever higher salaries and transfer fees to outbid the competition. I'd go one step further and have a transfer fee limit of some kind on top of a salary cap.

  23. Gotta say that when all this shit kicked off I always expected India to be amongst the very worst hit given the extreme poverty in much of the country coupled with such a large and concentrated population. When they seemed to be doing very well in the early stages I was very surprised.

  24. Eeerr... No! Come up with new ownership rules. Fans should have a say! On top of that, there should be some kind of salary cap system. Look at the NFL

  25. Aye, I mean i think the real world outside of GNR forums will have stopped caring if a 65 Axl Rose decides to release his next over produced masterpiece after a 19 year recording gap.

  28. I think it's a deeper snare than what he used before NITL, but yeah it's definitely the eq. Hate it😄 if I was in the room I'd pull a duff/Izzy and hide the snare.

  30. Part of Slash and Duff's IEM recordings from 2017 leaked a while ago, I'll send them to you. Slash basically only has his guitar in his IEM, which some people seem to think means he can't hear the other guys. In reality, he can hear everything on stage and uses his IEM to boost his own sound.

  31. All that I want is Soul Monster with vocals. Why is this so fucking difficult? He mentioned in the 2008 chats: "I think it's our most Black Sabbath moment. Sang it on a Christmas eve. Imo the meanest section of anything I've sung to date. Which having said that I'm sure when it's heard others may disagree but we felt it was a Christmas card of unadulterated venom so to speak. I felt a lot better afterward. " How the fuck can anyone "disagree" if you never release it!?! Are the "others" he mentions the voices in his head?

  33. I think if Frank played on Taylors set up most people here would have an entirely different opinion of him. Much prefer Taylors drum sound, I've covered my distaste for Franks boomy snare already..

  34. Wow.... This explain all of things I'm sayin' about Slash senseless playin' this four year... He is just listening himself... But wait a minute... Slash decides what goes on his IEM , so it's entirely his fault... Not Frank... So if slash is not Listening the rest of the band... It's not Frank fault of some mistakes. It's Slash's that is not hearing what he should. Wait to see about the feel/vibe of the way Taylor is playin....

  35. Right. You should do something about your bias. It's showing. The hired drummer does something, which supposedly no one asked him to do and no one really likes, but affects the performance of everyone in the band, but no one gives a shit and doesn't really say anything. If you really believe that...

  36. Oh the irony of people here complaining about the too fast tempo of Franks's playing and then praising the super fast Taylor Hawkins version of It's So Easy.

  37. He's been adding his own fills since he joined the band, but the tempos didn't change until Slash and Duff came back.

  39. At this point I can't even tell if this is a serious post If you think Richard or Frank are deciding how the songs should be played, and are overruling Slash and Duff, you're fuckin crazy

  40. I think both had Richard Fortus overdubs. The Blues has his take on the outro solo (which was added live between the European and US Tour in 2002), which obviously was replaced by a more straight forward approach from Buckethead in the album.

  41. Yeah... Richard and Frank are passing the buck to Slash and Duf... Of course... Richard and Frank are now the Musical Directors of Guns N' Roses ... They are telling Slash and Duff what to do... As much as Team Brazil is doing with Axl... Gotta laugh with some theories...

  42. I saw Frank playing live in 2010 and in 2016: if he played faster was because someone told him to do it. In 2010 played slower, and I doubt that he forget to play drums after that.

  43. True, but if the drummer is told "play at this speed" and he's the employee and they are the boss? I mean, Frank plays some stuff that I don't like, but I think we all know that Slash and Duff are the captains of how the band sound, and they want the songs played up a few bpm. When Stinson ran the ship, the band played slower and tighter; Frank was still playing stuff people didn't like, but the tempo was pretty rock solid for the most part.

  46. I couldn't care less about future touring, so Axl sounding like his prime again but still singing the same songs he's sung a billion times would still be boring. New music or GTFO.
