  1. I beat everyone to the punch with my new Axl Rose "Hang Loose" avatar. 2021 is already full of surprises. Next huge surprise would be an album please
  2. It's singer-songwriter, musician and total rock God, Axl Rose! https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/axl-rose-scooby-doo-and-guess-who-1131907/
  3. The bubble (before the latest issue in NZ) was only one-way... Going from NZ into Australia was fine because of no community transmission. Anyone going to NZ from Australia would still have to quarantine for 2 weeks.
  4. Yeah, no shows this year (in this scale) for anywhere other than potentially ANZ. Fascinated to understand what the quarantining measures will be like for ANZ come October/November, no way GN'R will fly over and quarantine for 2 weeks in a hotel before playing the shows, especially as they are going Australia->NZ->Australia.
  5. Interesting! Quite a big contradiction to BBF saying that back in 2014 he knew the band was reuniting...
  6. WOW! I can't imagine what Rhiad with Brian May would sound like!
  7. Really?! Do you have the source for that? Mentality wise, Catcher/Atlas/Perhaps (TBC!) are definitely more Brian May tracks, Rhiad is way more Robin/Bucket!
  8. It’s time for Paul Huge to once again emerge from the vault.
  9. Yeah I think this is exactly it - I thinK Axl saw Ashba as being more of the "next gen" of RN'R () whereas Sykes was very much more traditional. Incredible that someone like Sykes would even have to audition to be honest!
  10. Yeah quite sad to think of it this way, but the last time a song was played without being leaked or part of CD was 2001/2...
  11. Yeah you're absolutely correct here. I can't think of anyone that would give a sh*t about an unreleased GN'R demo (with no Axl vocals and no original members) from 1999. Having said that, hardcore fans and even fairweather GN'R fans I think would get on board with the material. As toxic as this board can be at times, to see the "Fuck you Bob Ezrin" thread come out once the Village sessions leaked showed that the fans here still deep down want Axl and co. to succeed. However, the casual GN'R fans that I have shown Hardschool and Atlas too have been unanimously positive about the songs. Wil
  12. You're absolutely correct with this - however - I have been absolutely besotted with Atlas ever since it's release 18 months ago. So it depends on what your definition of a "flop" is -- is it commercial reception or fan reception? I would agree if you were talking commercially but I would definitely counter your point if it was in regards to fan reception as I think the reaction to the leaks proved the fans are happy with the unreleased material.
  13. Yeah that’s true - different reports everywhere. I’m in London and apparently 1 in 30 are infected currently! Strange, worrying times. Stay safe.
  14. Wait, so Me and My Elvis --> Leave Me Alone --> Elvis Presley and the Monster of Soul? You sure on that?
  15. Not sure this is exactly true - as of the weekend just gone, the US had given just over 1% of their population (>2mil) a first dose of vaccination (UK currently at 1.4% or so, with Israel leading at 12%). Next few weeks/months quite critical in getting this rolled out.
  16. How do I mute members posts? I was previously able to do it but can't seem to find the option any more. Cheers.
  17. Green Lung are awesome! Caught them in London last year, glad you enjoyed too!
  18. Really cool show. Cornell's daughter playing "Black Gives Way To Blue" was the stand-out; absolutely sublime.
  19. Yeah the guy covering it does a stellar job! One of the big new-GNR regrets for me is that we never got to see Robin perform this live.
  20. Because the ambiguous tease of new music will keep some fans going to the shows...
  21. Thanks for sharing, @Blackstar Like other posters I had never seen this before! Enjoy reading Axl's thoughts around this time because the release of CD was raw and public opinion was probably at its most critical. The pervading feeling I get from these interviews is that Axl really is on the defensive. Reminds me of the "interview" done with Del on the official site in which his response to the first question was "Well that's f***ing bull****" or something along those lines.
  22. Think OP had this spot on when describing it as "cringe" I think the thing about Ashba that rubs people the wrong way is his lack of sincerity. For me, this shows it again. His rationale is that EDM is popular so he will follow popular, not caring if it sounds like trash. Anyway, wish no harm on the chap and fingers crossed it works out for him but this really isn't for me.
