    We can't discuss banned members - but absolutely not, the above is false.  There is a guy banned from this forum who I know gets info directly from Beta.  The same guy responsible for the video takedowns

    He certainly would not pass any of that info on to me.  I've no idea what his opinion/knowledge of new material is.

    Ah, OK, so they get their information directly from Beta.....which none of us have any way to prove. Also, discussing them didn't stop you from continually PM'ing the staff and many other users about them constantly. 

    I had no, and continue to have no interest in discussing that person. I had to tell you that several times as did the rest of the staff. As did many other users who have complained about PMs they've received from you.

    However, what I said above is true: you've continually attempted to position yourself as someone who knows something the rest of us don't. You do it over and over and over. It's become a running joke on the forum except it's not funny. 

    Everyone is aware that you think Axl didn't record any vocals after 99. That's been proven false. And now you want to go back on having tried to act as if you had information the rest of us didn't. 

    If you want to contribute to the forum like a regular user / fan, awesome. But if you want to keep saying the same things over and over, then change your story, you're going to get called out for it.

    Russ, you're idea of me speaking to 'insiders' is false.

    'Insiders' are generally 'insiders' because they claim to have detailed information about new songs that the rest of us haven't heard.

    I say the exact opposite.

    You've claimed your information comes from a person connected to the band and / or it's management, no? 

    Maybe I'm confused because you spent years and years PM'ing the staff and many users on this board looking for "dirt" on a person who runs another GN'R forum. 

    You only posted on the public forum when you were calling other people out for posting on that forum because you claimed to have extreme dislike for the person who runs it. 

    Then you started posting info on the forum, using the person who runs that forum as your source, while telling people that they're directly connected to the band. 

    So this whole "I never said I was an insider" but doesn't work.

    I don't have any 'info'.

    We know he recorded Rock the Rock.  We know he recorded some stuff post 99, some of it ended up on Chinese.  The General, Blood in the Water and This I love remix remain unreleased.

    Scraped, Better, Shacklers, This I Love remix, The General and Blood in the Water were all recorded way after 99.

    Lolwut.....you're entire shtick is "Axl hasn't recorded any vocals past 1999 and I know this because of my source who is an insider". Now you're changing it because people have proved that there are several examples of Axl recording vocals after 99. On top of which you're now saying you don't have an inside source? That's rich 😂

    More than likely go into hibernation. 

    Slash records yet another album with Myles Kennedy,

    Richard Fortus does yet another interview saying Axl is doing the finishing touches on vocals on his imaginary songs.

    Eventually Atlas Shrugged is released with 99 vocals and everyone sees that as some sort of 'proof' that Axl has been recording an album of new material.

    No one has ever mentioned Atlas Shrugged in connection with proving your info wrong. People have mentioned stuff like the vocals for Rock The Rock being definitive proof that your info is wrong though.

    Liberace appeared at Wrestlemania. Axl Rose isn’t good enough to appear in anything similar.

    one was a pioneer and icon, the other is a deluded, crazy, narcissistic control freak who has a team of yes people and a guitarist who hates him then loves working with him.


    so. No comparison.


    Is Axl AN icon? Yeah. Anywhere near the level of someone like Elvis or Liberace? Not even close.

    Serious question:  does anyone know if there even was a Radio Edit version of this song released?!  In its natural state, in all fairness, it’s not very radio friendly. :blink: 

    If any of you mother-fuckers or maggot-filled pussies know the answer please let us know…after all it IS a song that should be heard.  It kicks ass live!

    I was told that they DID get a file marked Radio Edit. I've never heard it on the radio myself though, so maybe not. In short, I was told yes but can't confirm.

    This video is aimed more at casual fans who always say Use Your Illusion could've easily been just one album. 

    Posting it here because I'll take all the views, subscribers, comments and likes I can get from the GN'R community :)

    Also, I know that everyone on this board probably has an opinion on this. 

    Do me a favor (please) and watch the video then drop a like and maybe a comment on it. Subscribe if you're into vinyl records, if not, no biggie :)


    Thanks again to everyone who's taken the time to watch the video, subscribe and/or drop a like. 

    Yeah, I promote the crap out of the channel and the podcast but I appreciate everyone putting up with it AND helping :)

    Both are a lot of work, but they're also very rewarding. In any case, for those interested, if you haven't checked it pit yet use the link above.

    There's too much good stuff there for one album, probably not enough for two full albums.

    I mean, aside from trashing My World I really wouldn't change anything.  

    Plus at this point it seemed like everyone had their own songs they wanted to get in there. 

    Yeah, that was part of the point of the video; to point out to people there truly is too much good material to cut it down to one album.

    Well, tonight I'm going to watch Moonwalker for the first time. 😊

    There's a lot of good things in Moonwalker but it's definitely got its issues. Watching it in pieces works much better for me than watching it straight through.

    I get where Russ is going with this, but to every person who's now posting their own "UYI as one cd" tracklist... when I rise to power this shall be a crime resulting in public decapitation. It's the single most unoriginal and irrelevant thing you can do on a GnR fan forum. 

    Yeah, having everyone post their "if UYI was one album" tracklists was not the point of the thread 😂 

    The whole point of the video was that UYI had to be 2 albums. I just picked a title for the thread but I thought the body of the post and certainly the video itself would make the point but apparently now 😂 

  11. New episode tomorrow, but before that:


    Our 100th episode is coming soon. We're gathering clips, so if anyone wants to contribute that would be great. 

    We want clips of poeple talking about an album or artist that's had a postive impact on your life. You can either email a clip to infectiousgroovepodcast@gmail.com or shoot us a voicemail at 313-364-9899. 

    We've got a couple weeks before we record #100 but the sooner I get the clips the better.

    I think it should've been been two slightly shorter albums.  There are a few songs which come up again and again for being weaker - My World, Shotgun Blues, Get In The Ring (sounds silly now but was fun when I was a kid!) - but you're still left with two long albums...

    That's very close to what I was saying in the video. I'd most likely cut those 3 but it would still have to be 2 albums.

    Just watched video, and enjoyed it very much. I've always loved UYI albums, and turned to them given I over listened to appetite. Have always preferred 2 over 1. However I always skip songs in favour of others and would argue that a single album with the best songs could have rivaled appetite. IMO, given the presence of alot of what could be considered as B_ grade mediocre mid tempo songs, ie, KOHD, Dn'B, YATF, DC(alt), BO, DTJ, The Garden, Dead Horse, 14 yrs, Yesterday's, So Fine, and My World, I see the albums as 'overbloated'. I like some of aforementioned songs, however they were not essential in my opinion. Yes I have often thought about the run times of the 4 long epics, NR, L, C, and estranged, and presents a problem for a single disc opinion lol, however could have released as one epic disc and EPx2 made up of aftementioed songs.   Smashing pumpkins released eps with Mellon collie and had epic songs on them that weren't on an album, but that's a digression. I absolutely love GITR, so I suppose it's different strokes for different folks. Hey Jude was recorded during White Album and wasn't even on the album and just a single, but we know it was different times back then. Anyway, awesome video, keen to check out others. 

    Thanks man. I currently have enough videos shot to where I can release two per week through the end of December. So there's a lot more coming, it's just spread across a lot more than just GN'R. There's already 70 or so videos on the channel as it is :)

    As for UYI; I agree with you and others who've said they might have been able to release one killer album then saved other cuts for EPs or B Sides. 

    For this particular video, I just wanted to cover how they were released as is. That's what I was saying it's more aimed at casual GN'R fans. The first thing casual GN'R fans usually say about UYI is something like "it could have easily been one album" and I couldn't disagree more with that.

    Great vid Russ, I enjoy listening to you. I was in the camp that it should've been one album but I changed my mind years ago. Man, your record collection is unreal.

    Thanks man :) and yeah, I've been working on the collection a LONG time but it's been worth all the effort.

    Having watched the video Russ, on UYI2, the songs you don’t like - GITR, and Shotgun Blues, are two that I actually love. Even if the lyrics are kinda cheese, I absolutely love them instrumentally underneath.

    I agree with you that there are too many songs I like for me to cut it down to one single album.

    I should have mentioned that I love GitR musically. Really love it from a musical standpoint but the lyrics are just.....ugh lol.....and I felt that way back in 91. I just can't get down with Shotgun Blues though. It's just never grown on me.

    Just watched the video Russ and really enjoyed it 👍

    totally agree that there’s no way to fit all the good songs on the albums into one album. For me personally I used to own the cassettes before buying the CD versions of UYI and my favourite run of tracks was “side 2 “ of UYI 1 (NR through to Coma). Whenever I played it I just couldn’t skip any of the songs. 
    As far as UYI 2 goes I think the end of the album ends at YCBM for me. It’s cool they recorded alt lyrics for don’t cry and I know a lot of people prefer it over the original but I barely listen to it. 
    Overall I think UYI 2 has the stronger tracks ( I mean come on Breakdown, Locomotive and Estranged :drool:) but it’s just a pity it seems like a let down at the end. 
    Both albums are great and underrated sometimes and the fact they were different from AFD just made it better. They were the soundtrack of my teenage years and I never get sick of listening to them. 

    Thanks for watching and the kind words. I totally agree with you obviously lol

    I'm not sure if the UK release is the same as the USA release, but the UK release is actually okay. Of particular interest to me is the Mr Big vinyl, and the Ghosts of Mars Soundtrack due to the Guns link.

    I'm just being a selfish shit about the RSD list lol. 

    I was hoping for releases from GNR, Elvis, Pink Floyd or Michael Jackson and none of them have reeleses :/

    I am interested in the Mr Big and Saigon Kick releases but that's about it.
