  1. Agreed, but I think it’ll be bust

  2. The "I want to bury Appetite" statement was in 1989. The exact quote: Axl: We found ourselves trying to write the next 'Jungle', write the next 'Paradise City', you know, and it's... we didn't want to but it was happening... Lyrics were coming out with lines about our other songs. That took a few months to get past that, to where we'd put those to rest. It's like, I hope this album's more successful because I just want to bury 'Appetite.' It's like, I like the album but I'm sick of it. I don't wanna live my life through that one album. I have to bury it. So rather than just throwing

  3. After the 2019 leaks, and the lack of any communication, I gave up on a couple things; -Anticipating new music -Thinking they will make a monster splash on the scene. GNR is still by far my favourite band. And right now I am currently on a hard rocker tip which gets me through this Goddamn world we are in. I do think we will hear new music again, just do not think it will be in the traditional sense. Maybe couple songs, or online thing. I don't want to be pessimistic, but I think if there is any major vocal work done on any of the current known leaks or new music w

  4. That's exactly what he meant. He didn't hate Appetite, he just wanted to out-do it. Most artists, regardless of what type of profession they're in (writer, painter etc.), strive to make their next work better than their last. Anything less is seen (by the artist) as a regression and a signal that the well is drying up.

  5. I think it was 25 years for the amps, 50 years in music. Double anniversary for Jim Marshall. I agree though, super confusing naming especially when you consider the original run was later rebranded the JCM 800 Custom Series but contained identical circuitry, and of course the JCM Slash 2555 for the first reissue.

  6. Could they really keep touring the AFD/UYI stuff for years though? They were already reduced to nuGNR levels in the US by 2019 (playing festivals and smaller venues) and, as the Selects made perfectly clear, Axl can't sing the majority of those songs anymore. There was no interest in their 2020 US stadium run, even before covid.

  7. I wouldn’t worry for Donald in the love department. Seems he’s got his next suitor all lined up...

  8. For me, it's new music or bust as a band. My interest wanes by the day. I barely even listen to Guns much these days. The non Guns pages of this forum are frequently more interesting. And I honestly am not sure that they can tour AFD indefinitely. And I'm not sure there is much "excitement". There's a lot of legacy acts but I can't think of one other with such a tiny discography. I've said this before on here but for me it is about legacy - they may have billions in the bank but if they never release new music they are murdering their legacy and respect as "artists". If they'd prefe

  9. I've always argued that 1997 may have been the best year for the WWF ever. It has Bret's best work as a character. Austin's best and most original work as Stone Cold. Michaels was great. It was the birth of the Attitude Era - but still relied on traditional wrestling programming and feuding. I hold it in high regard next to WWF '88-'89 years.

  10. Dude! We have Shadow of your Love. Don't be so ungrateful. It's hard to release music these days in the absence of suitable platforms. (yes I'm being sarcastic) This isn't a band that needs an album to promote a tour, nor a tour to promote an album - so I completely agree - the whole 'wait until after Covid' thing is total horse shit.

  11. Its basically either new music or bust at this point.

  12. I hate the thought of leaks forcing Axl's hand, but it was too much of a coincidence for me not to lean that way. Thank you Rick by take care of us. What a glorious period that was. I will never forget hearing Atlas for the first time and how it instantly changed my life...along with everyone else's.

  13. Another evidence to me that Matt is full of shit about his bashing stories in his book is the Snakepit part. Didn't he say he asked Slash to erase all his parts after Slash choosed Eric Dover as lead singer for "It's Five O'clock Somewhere" without asking Matt or something like that? Why is he part of the music video to Beggars and Hangers-on then? Because he's full of shit, that's why!

  14. Success doesn't necessarily equal quality. Since 2017, after the initial reunion buzz had worn off, it's been hard for me to enjoy this soulless version of the band. Axl sounds worse by the day, the rest of the band look bored as fuck, management (and I use that term loosely) is a complete joke, and we are seemingly no closer to a new album. There's always an excuse for how little this band can function. "It's not the right time. We're looking at different ways. Music is consumed differently these days. There's a pandemic." It's as bad as it was from 2011-2014 except now Slash and Du
