  1. Yeah, I can't bring myself to do variants. If there's extra tracks MAYBE I'll pick up a variant but if not, I just pick a cover I like and stick with that. One of my long running mottos is "you don't play the cover". So as long as I have all the music available, I'm set.
  2. I could just put KOHD on from a recent show. I could listen to the first half on the way there and the second half on the way home! Oh snap. I didn't think about that aspect. I keep forgetting that Absurb was played so long ago. Shit, you're right. That would be cool.
  3. I caught that too, but then it being one word was like "well that's something GNR would pull" lol.
  4. It's just such an easy target and way out of date. I take a lot of pride in being from Detroit. I love this city and wouldn't trade it for living anywhere else in the world. I'm the type of person who always roots for the underdog, so it's been amazing to watch everything that's developed over the past decade. Very proud of my city and all the people who work hard to make it amazing
  5. Assuming a new album comes out, I do expect SEVERAL vinyl versions. Here in the US, Walmart and Target have been back in the vinyl game big time. Nearly every big album that comes out has different color vinyl or cover variants at each of those retailers in addition to indie store variants. If GN'R ever releases a new album, I wouldn't be surprised if there's at least 4 vinyl variants if not more.
  6. That's interesting actually.....I wonder if it's actually ready to go for tomorrow?
  7. lolololol what an original joke.....you should maybe do some research on Detroits incredible comeback over the past decade
  8. It's 10am in Detroit. I'm going to debate this all day until 5pm. Dammit. Lol
  9. Pah.....I bet your the kind of person who believes Axl has recorded vocals since '99!
  10. That's one of the best examples of Norm. There's a sea of amazing examples but that one is the one that's like "if you get this, you're gonna love this guy"
  11. I'm not sure where you get your information from, but I read on the internet that there's a 100% chance of Hard School tonight, along with a surprise album tomorrow!
  12. WELL YOU HAD TO BE A FOOL, HAD TO DO IT YOUR WAY! HAD TO BE A FOOL, HAD TO THROW...... wait....you said "old school", not "hard school". My bad, natural reaction.
  13. For sure. I use streaming whenever I'm out and about. I also use it now and again during our Friday night spins if/when I don't have something on physical media.
  14. Lol, what? Why would half of it have be instruments?
  15. I literally came back to the thread to post this exact thing.
  16. It's fun to think about for sure. It's the whole "what if GN'R did one thing right, let alone many things right at the same time"? Fun to think about, but never gonna happen. 180 minutes with of music, with 1999 vocals. Same here but I'm that way about all the music I buy. I couldn't care less how many other people buy it as long as I own it and I like it. For the record, I absolutely do NOT think we're getting a full album by surprise on Friday. It's nice to joke about / discuss but I don't think it'll happen.
  17. This exact model has been done several times over the past years. Fans get to hear the music immediately, then post about it all over social media. Then excitement gets sparked again when the CDs ship, then again when the vinyl follows (due to the pressing plants being backed up right now). It's actually a pretty good system. One thing it will require is for GN'Rs social media pages to be managed far better than they are now. Having said all of that, I couldn't give two shits how it's promoted after it's released. Just let me give you money for your music.
  18. They wouldn't have to worry about CDs until weeks after the surprise digital release. Taylor Swift, Eminem, Beyonce and many other artists have had huge albums in the last few years that were surprise releases on streaming. Then they released the CDs weeks later and the vinyl after that.
  19. Imagine having a full, new, surprise album from GNR. Then getting over being stunned and clicking on Absurd first by accident.
  20. The following things would explode, in this order, if an entire album dropped on Friday: My head This board
