  1. Lol, what? Why would half of it have be instruments?
  2. I literally came back to the thread to post this exact thing.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Imagine having a full, new, surprise album from GNR. Then getting over being stunned and clicking on Absurd first by accident.
  7. The following things would explode, in this order, if an entire album dropped on Friday: My head This board
  8. I dunno. The articles I saw yesterday mentioned that it was an old CD leftover, I think.
  9. Needless to say, I am dead set against physical media going away lol
  10. WOW. I'm forced to assume this price drop is another attempt to get me to go.
  11. Actually, yes haha. He just got his permit. So technically, yes, he could drive us lol.
  12. I know, I know. The big deal is it being a solo deal this time. I've driven from Detroit to Chicago for GN'R at least 4 times. I've had someone with me every time. It really helps to have someone take half the drive. My wife has made most of the trips with me but she has no interest this time out. She even went to the casino instead of GN'R when they were in Detroit a few weeks ago lol.
  13. Haha yeah. I just looked and it's 4 hrs, 45 minutes from my front door to Wrigley. I wouldn't even be taking a chance just for HS. I'm always down to meet and hang out with forum folks plus I had a way better time in Detroit than I expected. Then there's the fact that Wrigley is the last Chicago venue I haven't seen a show at. BUT.....nearly 5 hour drive, one way. I just can't bring myself to commit to it :/
  14. Wish. This. Wasn't. A. Four. Hour. Drive. Ugh.
  15. That's because a setlist picture said "Absurd" on it and Silkworms said absurd in it. That was just people putting 2 and 2 together, it wasn't inside info.
  16. Sorry for my shitty reply earlier. I don't think you're a troll, I just don't think this needed it's own thread. Having said that, I'm just in a shit mood today and there was no reason for me to be a dick about it. My bad.
  17. Look.....they could title it "DJ Ashba Is The Greatest Guitarist Ever" and I'd still buy it. I'd scratch out the title everywhere it appears on the cover, but I'd still buy it.
  18. I'd be fine with ANY title for ANY new album. I just want this band to release music.
