  1. I agree with OP. It took me years n' years to shake GnR from me. I now clock in here once in a blue moon to see if there are any specific updates, and sometimes not even that - it's a quick google search for news. Wish and hope the band has success with new music, but I'm over waiting for - or even expecting - anything worthwhile anymore. Once i finally shook the GnR 'addiction' it was a blessing. Seen them countless times across eras, and now wouldn't go see them again. I have doubts now that even if there was a new record, it'd be average at best. None of them a pushing them
  2. Possibly never then, his entourage must cost a fortune, I personally think it's one reason the band in all its versions continued on (particularly the Vegas stints and stuff). I'm sure he is comfortable and has investments etc. but at the end of the day i get the impression over the years that like most of us, and other large corporations, he lives just barely within his means. Every now and then he has to do hit the road with any version of Guns and make coin.
  3. Band, label, management, don't care. It's still effort, time, and money that comes out of a budget of sorts that elements would be associated with GnR, imo that small segment of budget, effort, etc could be directed towards something more productive from a Guns perspective.
  4. THis might have been covered in the thread already - apologies if so. But didn't Axl (and from memory Slash), not like this at the time it was originally released?? Seem to recall Axl trying to block it as wasn't a representation of the band at the time (newguns), and seem to also remember Slash, and I think Axl too, later speaking about how collection of songs were pretty shit. Wasn't it a way for the label to reap some $ from all the amounts they were sinking into Axl's new guns? Anyways, necessary release imo, and time / effort / money could have been put into something more
  5. Mark Lanegan would be close. But both were junkies though, and holding up genuine friendships isn't a priority, they knew each other well before becoming too strung out. OT - I think as both artists aged and matured, I can't see them being friends, but certainly a mutual respect as apposed to the juvenile angst of when there was 'beef' between them all.
  6. That's not his fault though, the song itself is pretty boring. In saying that, I really dug this cover by him.
  7. Disagree here. Music always has the ability to for ppl to things differently, just might not appeal to our, my, your tastes. The art form itself is always ripe for experimentation, always has been, always will be.
  8. Lol so true. Setlist is so predictable, and has been for ages now even pre NITL, that you know when you got plenty of time. TBH it made me enjoy my last show (NITL) as I could just enjoy the gig and some drinks and come n' go as I please knowing I wouldn't be missing anything. In saying that, despite enjoying that show, and seeing them at a minimum of a dozen times now - I won't be seeing them again until new music is released, or prices more realistic, or something changes.
  9. Its a cool man, thanks for the heads up. Well done. IMO it could do with shrinking down to 3 to 3.5 min mark, whilst keeping the outtros, chorus', etc. But what do I know? Imagine it's hard to cull chunks, but to my ears it'd benefit from being a bit shorter.
  10. I personally don't think a top consistent level is expected, but Axl's voice sounds like he is out of breath and lacks any sort of power - even with the easier songs. And he isn't charging around as much as he used to, so I dont think that can be an excuse anymore. Sure he is 50+ , and good on him for carrying on, but imo he sounds tired after a couple of bars of the first song. He may have blown his voice etc, but it seems to me that he doesn't put any effort into his craft going by the evidence we've seen of him live - be that warm ups, warm downs, vocal training and exercise when not p
  11. Thats cool man. Looks like y'all having heaps of fun too. Like the tone of your guitar too, whats the rig / setup you use to record?
  12. Nice read. Really enjoyed snippets from Brain. I'd dig an in depth interview with him, with a significant focus on Guns of course, but all his other shit too.
