  1. Republicans protest, circumvent new metal detectors inside Capitol after riot

    This is moronic. These GOP lawmakers are acting like overprivileged children...the type that often wants to "speak to the manager".  According to the article, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said the added security was hampering his constitutional rights and Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., called the metal detectors an "atrocity." This is just a small example of how this group emphasizes grotesque individualism over common sense security measures. Moreover, it's a microcosm of how their corrupt ideology has played out in dealing with this pandemic. Basically, it's: Fuck every one else's health and safety....we have rrrrights! Brrrr! 

     

  2. If you really want to let go, just let go. I've been here since 2003, and I checked out a long time ago. However, Guns N' Roses were an integral part of my upbringing, and I will never forget that. They are a legendary band, and their music will live on indefinitely. They're much older now, and there has been a lot of wasted potential. In other ways, I have also been duly impressed (Axl's run with AC/DC deserves such mention). It is what is.

    Agreed, and I love the 80’s albums. But by the 90’s, they became just a fantastic rock band. Those shows on their 1995 These Days tour are some of their very best. 

    I completely agree. I rarely watch their 80s bootlegs/listen to their music from that era. The 1990s is really when Bon Jovi became a formidable force in both songwriting and showmanship. From 1992-1996, their energy and musicianship was just from another planet.

    Wrong. The best piano parts were done by Axl. Estranged, 14 Years, Yesterdays and so on. I'm pretty sure Axl also wrote Dust N' Bones and Locomotive piano stuff, but he let Dizzy play on these tracks.

    There's a stark difference between being proficient at composition and being a good player. These are two distinct skills. Some musicians can do both well, but that is not always the case. Axl is clearly a great songwriter on the piano. However, he was smart enough to let Dizzy take these parts as Dizzy is a much more technical piano player. This doesn't mean that Dizzy would have been able to write those songs though.

  5. If this was approved by the band but not officially promoted by its various marketing platforms, it wouldn’t be so bad.

    However, seeing their social media accounts push this product is just weird. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again...the band could release short EPs in a semi-consistent manner and the fan base would be satisfied. It’s not prudent to promote this sort of thing when there’s no new music in sight.

    I am fed up with all of these horrible ''celebrities'' with their webcams, demonstrating tips on ''coping with'' isolation with little exercise videos and so forth. Why don't they all just fuck off. 

    They are doing what they've always done...to entertain and to draw attention to themselves. You can choose not to watch them. My friends and I are doing similar things—the only difference being, we're not public figures. I suppose we're held to different standards.

    Having said that...I refuse to watch Gal Gadot's Imagine video.:lol:

    As someone born in 1989, I can confirm that I don’t know what GnR is.

    I was also born in 1989. Who's Nuns N' Doses? Don't they play with that fuzzy haired guy...Stash? I understand the truth now. Had I been born in 1988 or before, I would have been endowed with infinite wisdom.

    Interesting when Axl says their band is a political statement. Now, GN'R isn't political band but they've definitely picked a side, and that side being Liberal. I can't support GN'R in that aspect but at least they don't normally bring it to the show or do they?.......

     

     

    You completely missed the point of what Axl said. He made an analogy that compared how bands each have a "brand" or style in a similar fashion to how political parties are each represented by an ideology. It was an analogy and not a political statement of any sort.

    I'd love anything that's new. But if I can be picky, and we all know you can't with GnR, I'd want two different things. 

    1. A release of the material created between 1998 and 2004. In that form. No added whatever by Ron Thal or Ashba or anything. Just the CD project as it was originally envisioned. 

    2. New material from the band that just did the NITL tour. 

    The thing is, I don't want them to get mixed together. I'd be far less interested in Slash and Duff re-recording and re-working the music that Axl created with the 1998-2004 band. 

    But yeah, an EP of either of those two options would be amazing. Preferably option 2. I'd buy that, without a doubt. 

    And I'm still dreaming of option 1 being released as a box set to close that chapter. I'd buy that in a heartbeat. 

    I completely agree with you.

    I'd prefer option 2 as well, and I don't think those two things should be mixed together. If we are to get new material from this latest touring band, then I think they should use a completely new slate and start fresh. The truth is that Axl's music with the previous band will most likely sound dated as it has been so long since those songs were created/worked on. Though, as you suggested, if it was released as part of some box set or compilation of rare/unreleased material then I'd more than welcome it.

  10. In my fantasy world, they would keep touring with several (6 or so) months of time between legs to give them time to write/produce a new record. Appetite was written as they played gigs (albeit, they lived together), so it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility. I would hope that new material is written in a more concise manner. The longer that process is dragged out, the more tumultuous the whole affair becomes.
