  2. What an absolute cunt. Telling people what they can and cannot talk about? Why, god, why. Why us, why GN'R? Why couldn't F'nando have happened to some other band?

  3. That's right merely a hypothetical out of curiosity. So no need to wag fingers too hard at music lovers. I'm not an insider I have no insight into Axl's psyche just guesses and assumptions. That being said I voted for our boy's wellbeing, you villains!

  4. The last time I visited Nightrain there was all of four people on it. It's a ghost town due largely to poor moderation. Fernando won't come here anymore. Apparently we committed the ultimate crime of allowing discussion of the leaks a few years ago, something he likened to facilitating the distribution of the leaks themselves. I told him I don't need his empty and ignorant legal threats and haven't spoken to him since. This was all in the context of me trying to explain to them that openly defending one of the worst GNR community trolls of all time isn't in their best interest from a

  5. At this point, if anything, I'd imagine they are putting the finishing touches on Oh My God and Silkworms before the new album will be ready. It will also take them some time to pull Bumble's parts from some of the mixes in favor of Bucket's older takes, and include Slash on some of those as well.

  6. There is absolutely zero chance that anything will even come close to AFD. Which I think is the core problem here. Axl tried to ‘bury’ Appettite, but it can’t ever be done... If he enjoys touring, then tour. If putting out music is too hard for him, which it appears to be, then don’t release any. But just don’t string along your fans who have supported you for 30 - 40 years by speculating that new music is around the corner (through the suggestions of other band members) if it isn’t really true.

  7. They nailed it back in the day but fucked it up for the complete NITL tour. I'm with you, I have both, Axl and Slash, heard worse on this song but even this good performance sounds weird. Besides the amount of covers, that's a song I would drop and play Don't Cry every gig instead.

  9. There isn't one, there was a phone clip that I think is still on youtube. Fernando is apparently going to try and upload a pro shot if they have it in the archive. Side note, we should also ask him for the CDII album that was ready for release in 2014, while he's in a user friendly mood😄

  11. where btw is the proof that Axl has any kind of serious mental health issues these days ? that's only some peoples guessings when there's nothing else to talk about, or no other excuse for the lack of new music.

  12. I struggle with anxiety/depression and I have to go with Axl's peace of mind here. Those kind of problems don't vibe well with the music industry, especially when you're someone like Axl. I understand that as fans, we want that material. To justify my answer though, I relate to the stress that comes with writing/releasing music and I'm on an underground level. That shit is terrifying at times because as a songwriter, you know all of the intricacies of your music and you can fall into the trap of being a perfectionist. I can't imagine how much worse it is on Axl's level.

  16. The solo is a bit too sloppy and not as fluid as it could have been (but that is to be expected from Slash), but I still like it, loving the build up to the climax. I wouldn't want him to play it note for note like how he played it on the record anyway.

  17. That would be all well and good if he was going out there killing it every night. I mean, no-ones expecting him to sound like 1987 anymore, but still, if he was going out there even at 2016 level and giving it his all, then perhaps fans wouldn't give him such a hard time. But the combination of no new music ever and downright awful, phoned in performances with vocals that make the chance of even getting a live album out of the question means that fans have every right to be pissed. Axl has taken no pride in anything GNR related in a long, long time.

  18. And that's why most fans have lost interest or get irritated with Axl and GN'R. Axl and many members of GN'R have gone around for years telling fans and the press that new music is always around the corner. Nothing ever happens, then they use literally any excuse as to why it didn't happen. There only seem to be two things for certain: new GN'R material never gets released and Axl will blame it on anything but himself.

  20. What I took from the synopsis it's that it's only covering his life up to and including Back In Black, so while I don't expect the book to abruptly end I wouldn't expect much detail about the later years in general. Granted, I suppose there isn't much he can really cover beyond that anyways. He wouldn't be the type to go into detail about what truly happened with Phil in 1983 or how he felt about Slade's sacking and so forth.

  23. Not a CD fan here either. I did find the leaked songs much better than the over produced sliced up released album version of CD. .y bought copy of cd only gets pulled out every now and then on a rare occasion.

  24. It's one of the best performances from one of the best rock n roll singers... but imagine the reaction if they finally upload a 'from the vault' Selects and it's from 2006.

  25. Motorhead & My Bloody Valentine were without doubt the loudest bands I saw live. The bit in “You made me realize” where they do the white noise thing on that one chord is almost intolerable.... My ears would whistle for at least a day or two each time I saw Motorhead... Where did you catch the Stones?

  26. Those final residency performances of Yesterdays were fairly smokin' I'd love to see a pro shot of that! if he's willing to upload that sailing vid, then maybe we'll get other CD era live footage and or UYI live footage... which would be the holy grail!

  28. I’m talking bands you’ve seen multiple times only, individual gigs I’ve been to over 400... The stones do a lucky dip option, 2 tickets for $50... You can get a $600 ticket or a $75 ticket in the dip, and thus be anywhere in the stadium. but I’ve mostly gotten tickets in the $250- $600 range. The last “run” of stones gigs I went on was in 2018, I went to the first 5 shows on the European tour and I spent about £200 in total on tickets. Ryanair flights make it easy and cheap to follow tours in Europe. The 2 Stones shows I’ve saw since in Seattle and outside Toronto cost me $

  29. Wasn't a fan of that Yesterday's.. To me that is one of the songs that this lineup just can't get right... The solo wasn't very good and neither was Axl.. People say he sounds good there? It sounds like Mickey to me.. I know it shouldn't matter but the chair videos kind of turn me off too. Axl looks like Humpty Dumpty with his big belly sitting on top of his skinny little legs.. Props to him and the band making it work but I don't care to see it. I would rather see him walking around trying to command the stage.

  31. Look at all the artist that suffer from mental health and still release music. When it comes to creativity and making music his lazy full stop. Happy to make a few bucks and jump on stage overweight, ill prepared and on autopilot through songs at a concert though.

  35. Agreed. Even when bowie knew he was dying he organised his back catalogue for future releases after he had passed. He continued to record blackstar until the end. Thats dedication to your fans. From what I read freddie mercury did the same thing and recorded as much vocals as he could before his time was up. I dont know why Axl wouldnt let someone write for him if he cant other than selfish greed regarding royalities. Even then some artists will change a few words here and there so they can still get royalties on a song. Most their hit songs were written by Izzy anyway

  38. With his own band, Slash makes definitive statements. "We have 20 songs." With GNR, it's vague "working on" or "we've got a bunch of stuff going on." It's never something like: "We've written 30 original songs and we're trying to narrow it down to the final 12 that will be on the next record." I mean, just comparing the way he talks about the Conspirators vs GNR, you can tell there's jack shit going on in GNR world.

  39. Yeah, and some of it he will probably make something good off his initial investment. It’s a good time to sell. Stuff like 70’s Gibsons, Silverbursts, etc...have done well over the last 20 yrs He still has a huge collection after this. You can’t keep it forever and it takes up a ton of space. Gotta thin out the herd at times. I’m sure he has new stuff that comes in constantly. Maybe he’s eyeing something big or he can invest it elsewhere. Life happens

  40. Can a songwriter truly have peace of mind when they've released one album in 30 years and haven't released anything for nearly 13 years? Also what about a singer who basically cannot sing the majority of their catalogue of songs properly? Axl has a lot of work to do to achieve non pharmaceutical peace of mind I think.

  41. Probably yes. Some fans knew Axl and the band in the 2000s. Nothing wrong with that. Like fans who are AFD fans too. Damn i want news. A UYI Pre-order.

  43. My favourite artist is releasing an album every Friday this month. Today was Slumafia, a follow-up to a fan-favourite EP that came out in 2013. Next week is Mile Zero, a "early, lo-fi hip hop vibes, all analog" album produced by DJ Muggs. The week after that is an album that fans have been anticipating for a while, Mudmouth, which will also have a full-length movie released this summer. Then his rock album with Shooter Jennings comes out later this year. As much as I love GNR, it's so great to follow real artists like Yelawolf, or Buckethead, etc.
