  1. Beyond that though, there was a lot to enjoy as an AC/DC fan also. The shows were a solid 45 mins longer than your typical AC/DC gig with roughly 6-7 songs more every night than was typical with Brian. The Philly gig in particular is most likely the longest show in AC/DC history. All of the “extra” songs were ones the band hadn’t performed in decades; Riff Raff hadn’t been played since 1978 (Barring the VH1 session in 1996 but that was a studio performance), Live Wire hadn’t been played since 1982, Touch Too Much wasn’t confirmed to have ever been played before. The band returned to original t

  2. I pose a question to the forum: is it time to let go? Disclaimer: I absolutely anticipate this will be merged or swept into another topic because it doesn't contain a new piece of info but this part of the forum is called "Discussion & News" I joined this forum in 2005 at the same time as @Axl_morris because we were obsessed with the mythology of GN'R; who Axl was, where he's been and what comes next with this amazing rock band. 15 years later, I've seen them 8 times (on both sides of the Atlantic), I've arrived at a record store for opening for Chinese Democracy, I've flown my g

  3. I’ve not been impressed with SMKC apart from the odd stand out track (which tends to be really good TBF). I find it to be really generic stuff mainly - and I’m convinced Axl and Duff would raise it a few levels. Likewise - Slash can elevate other songs ala NR and Estranged with the RIGHT solos that the song demands....it’s no coincidence that SMKC seems to miss ‘epics’ and CD didn’t really have straightforward hard rock.....they complimented each other back then. I think/hope they can still do it.

  7. There has never been a band that I was more passionate about. Probably because of my age when they hit it big. I think I was 13 when they started to break and I rode the wave all the way through highschool and adulthood. I followed every move the members made in their solo careers... especially Slash.. I followed Axl until 2001/2002 then he just turned me off.. Still there was nothing I wasn't more in rock than a reunion.. I literally had dreams about it... Now I have reached a point where I have never been so uninterested. I almost wish the reunion didn't happen, It all could have and

  10. No new album. Funny how some artists can put together an album in 6 to 7 weeks and GN’R can’t in almost 5 years. So much wasted time with this band. It’s easy to say, no we don’t have any new music coming out or yes, we should by end of year. This band could have been one of the all-time greats, but pissed it away.

  12. I think that, with the exception of the first three years of the Project/Velvet Revolver, Slash did always want back to GnR. And they were always offered money to reunite. In 2005 he made that mystery drunken visit to Axl's house and apologized for what he had said in the press when he was promoting VR (he didn't say if he wrote it in the note he left for Axl or if he told Beta). There was a lot of smoke about a reunion in early 2006, and most likely there was fire, too. Slash wouldn't do it unconditionally, of course. At first, his main condition - based on his public comments, at l

  13. Besides, I don't understand where these ''lazy'' comments come from. The fact he has been touring non-stop and playing three hour shows makes that argument fall kinda flat. It would be much easier (and lazier) for him to record songs in his studio without even leaving his house, than to go out and tour the world over and over. I have no idea why he doesn't release new music. No good songs? He doesn't care? He's insecure? He's a perfectionist? I couldn't tell you, but saying he's lazy makes the least sense.

  16. I did a chargeback with my bank, as I didn't trust Ticketmaster one bit and there was no reply to emails. The bank refunded my money, but it's 'pending on Ticketmaster's comunication' for 2 months....one of which has passed and they haven't stopped it yet. Fingers crossed they don't for the second month, then I'm done. It's fucking shameful that I've had to resort to filing it as a fraudulent transaction (goods paid for and not received) to get my own own money back. Ticketmaster can fuck right off from now on if they think they're seeing any money from me.

  18. That was fun. It has a multi-multiball, might have been 6 balls might have been more and it's on save for a while. The balls just kept coming! Think that's Axl's voice telling you to shoot the ramps and loops. You get all the lights going and it's amazing. Pretty easy to get the songs going. GNR songs go so well with pinball. One of the ramps is two drum sticks. Fell off that once and jumped a rail. For the ball lock you go to an upper level with a flipper. Lots of drum hits when you bounce off stuff. Think that was a doorbell on one of them. Saves your ball a lot but that may just

  20. Transgender people aren’t that way because their parents encouraged it (it’s usually the complete opposite). If a kid actually is transgender you can’t change that as a parent and neither can a psychiatrist (though they should absolutely see a psychiatrist). All you can do is decide whether you actually love your child or not. As a member of a family who has gone through this I know what the fuck I’m talking about.

  21. Generic Slash songs let GNR become one of the greatest bands ever in music history. He didn't change much compared to back in the day. He's doin' pretty much the same but it isn't Izzy and Axl who contribute to his stuff or the other way around and that's the biggest issue. Give him something that good and Slash's "generic" work will still be the perfect match for it. Edit: But that's funny and a typical-GNR-fans-move. Let's avoid the elephant in the room and blame somebody else other than Axl for the lack of new music. The revolving door for bandmembers, the evil managers, the recor

  26. I think many of you underestimate HOW popular gnr truly is, especially with casual fans. Just recently I have read two articles that establish this point. In this article, it discussed the most streamed songs by rock/metal acts on spotify. Guns n Roses streaming numbers are HUGE. What makes this even more important, this is YOUNGER people listening on spotify. https://loudwire.com/most-streamed-spotify-songs-rock-metal/ This next article is impressive because ALL of guns studio albums are listed. Not only that, but again some HUGE album sales numbers. Especially when you compa

  27. I got the strong feeling there would have been a new Guns N' Roses record this year, had COVID not happened. And to be honest, those who have released new albums this year haven't seen much in the way of sales. Take Katy Perry, for example. Her newest record fell out of the Billboard top 200 after two weeks. Granted, she sucks and in no way should be mentioned in the same breath as Guns N' Roses, but at one time she could move albums. Another example is Bon Jovi, whose most recent album '2020' debuted at number 19, but fell to number 145 in just it's second week. I don't expect the upcomi

  28. Thing is - Slash won’t get involved in a slanging match (not his style) so we won’t ever know for sure. My thoughts are it’s either a case of Slash trying to appease Matt during said conversation or it’s just been totally embellished. Slash has always wanted back in to GNR so I think it’s more than a gig to him.

  29. Even IF there was a Guns album in the can. Even if this years tour was supposed to promote it. That still doesnt mean it will ever come out! And my impression is that no one person in the camp could say why. I think the ship it set up to allow a wide berth for behaviours and choices that we dont know about and wouldnt understand them if we did. Im looking forward to a new SMKC (despite that being the cringiest name in rock history!). Franks licks on Driving Rain are very promising for the future of the collaborations! Also, Slash might have gotten fired up with the Guns mojo and directed

  30. But his ideas for SMKC will definitely get released. If they say an album is coming in 2021, it WILL be released in 2021. I'm not sure I'd put my best work into something I thought had little chance of seeing the light of day. I mean, he might well be, but we'll likely never get the chance to find out.

  31. It's fun to post here- I always get some laughs out of the comments and people are pleasant. It gets me through the days really, coming here and discussing my favourite band, and realising I'm not alone out there. I'm sort of accepting of the idea now that we'll never hear anything new. I'm not ok with that- I think it's a shameful waste of talent and opportunity, but I accept that's the way it will be. Nothing but an album actually being releasing will make me think there is any new material- we've had promises and carrot dangling for years and years. For me though it's not about

  32. My biggest gripe with VH II is the production, I've always found it just a little flat. VH I is raw, aggressive, and Eddie's guitar just cuts through the mix like a knife without ever feeling like it actually overpowers the rest of the mix. Production-wise, it's one of my favorite albums of all time. VH II is more polished and less dynamic to my ears. Works good for some of the poppier stuff like Beautiful Girls and DTNA, but it really doesn't do the rockers like DOA or Light Up The Sky Justice, they feel a little neutered by the production IMO. Song-wise it's absolutely on par with the debut,

  33. It's embarrassing that Slash is going to release his second solo album, duff has a solo album, dizzy has a solo album, even ferrer has a fucking album ALL since this version of GnR reunited. And still there is no new album, no sniff of an update about where it's at and no release date. Creatively GnR are a spent force. It's a shame, coz I was listening to state of grace today and thinking, wow a slash solo between the final verse and the screamed outro would be incredible. Instead we're going to get generic cock rock from smkc and radio silence from GnR. It's at the point now, where even

Not sure if allready mentioned but the worst of all this, is that Duff posted a video on his instagram just a few days after the cheap rerelease of GH on vinyl (cheap as in low effort, easy money) In this video he's unboxxing a great vinyl boxset from Prince, showing off how epic it is and that it contains shitloads of demo's that are never heard before, a full never released live show audio only and even a dvd containing a never before seen full gig. Then he even says with fucking dry eyes that it better be good and how he will be the first to critisize it if it aint good and how he

  45. GN'R came onto a music scene that was dominated by hair rock and pop rock. They were the first real rock band in that generation who lived the life they were writing about and cracked the ceiling to make it to the top. I think this is where the emotions originally stemmed from. They weren't known as 'the most dangerous band in the world' for nothing. Celebrity worship of people like Axl and Slash are normal consequences of fame.
