  1. Holy shit I didn't realise. I was at that gig and it was one of the most surreal moments I've ever seen. Me and some random dude just started shouting in each other's face
  2. I won't use this opportunity to turn this thread into a "Fantasy Chinese Democracy album tracklist" but my thoughts are... If Hard School had replaced Shackler's Revenge on the album I think it will have quite substantially better received. I think a lot of GN'R casuals and general Rock N' Roll casuals will have picked up the album, listened to the title track and been relatively happy but then once it went into Shackler's will have been quite turned off by it. As much as I love Shackler's, I remember hearing the Chicken Dinner leak for the first time and actually finding the track q
  3. I agree with @James Bond here - I don't think it was personal against Axl, more that he had seen Malcolm depart and pass away and then Brian having to leave also all culminating in it not really feeling like AC/DC to him. I've not seen anything to suggest that the AC/DC line-up of 2016 had any issue with Axl at all, if anything I think there was huge respect for Axl sitting in (no pun intended) for that tour. I'm not an expert in law but I'm sure that if AC/DC had to cancel those shows they would've been liable for a large chunk of costs, so Axl being able to come in and fill that spot (having
  4. My take on this interview was slightly different to how others have interpreted it. What I took away from it was he was quite happy/inspired to play with the CD-era guys and it seems that only after what could be referred to as CD-era 1 seemed to fall apart that it became less fulfilling. Richard has frequently talked about how he gets on with Robin personally and professionally and I think what is clear from interviews and other subtext is that the addition of Ron was especially frustrating for both Richard and Robin because they had re-worked the parts for 2 guitarists and Ron showed u
  5. Josh Freese is the man. Really wish he had stuck around but a guy that driven/accomplished deserves better than what GNR became.
  6. I have been on this board for more than 15 years and I can honestly say no-one has summed up the truly bizarre logic of how GN'R fans try and apply some sort of logic to the complete lack of action from this band better than this post.
  7. The record producer part is accurate - Brain talked about this in the below interview (starts at approx 30secs). The activist part, however, is very much up for debate!
  8. Not quite the new album we were hoping for... Strangely includes SOYL too. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/guns-n-roses-greatest-hits-to-be-released-on-vinyl-in-september/
  9. Nice! I like these! Unfortunately no international shipping
  10. Entire Pro-shot Download or the ones used for NITL selects (and footage on Sky Arts)?
  11. In all honesty really don't care what Axl looks like as long as he can get around the stage and sing. Will we hear new stuff... I'm eternally optimistic but I just don't think we will unless there's something concretely lined up for a new album.
  12. I guess this is the most disappointing bit for me. Axl/DC was without a doubt the single greatest vocal performance I have ever witnessed in my life. Axl was in a moon-boot and only a few weeks after Vegas so not a huge change physically, but he KNEW he had to bring his A-game or get slaughtered and his performance was truly mind-blowing.
  13. Maybe - but Download was a pure open air, so I don't recall hearing same when I was there too. Much more pronounced within a wrap-around stadium.
  14. Yeah for sure, can't see everyone and it's natural that people will be going in and out but my main point was that I could hear the echo of people singing along with that song for the first time in my life (seen 15 GNR shows), highlighting mainly how big the venue is and how many people there were!
