  1. Out ta f'n get me!!! I was out to get me a break after that! No way I could go right into NR after getting my ear blasted by that energy. Wow.
  2. It's not quiet on the video front. That 3 song clip came out like a week ago!
  3. Everything gets locked but this thread? Okay. Anyway, podcast was fun.
  4. Strong performance from the band and especially Axl. About the same set we got at ACL. Festival sets are shorter and tighter. Should take this philosophy to their own tours.
  5. And i agree wholeheartedly w/ that, but you said bare minimum which is as close to zero as you can get and get away w/ it. I wish he was still a lit, fit motherfucker who could usher rock back to the top, but time has taken its toll. I wish he switch out all the preparation he used to do for some balls. Throw out some new music, release his memoir, kick someone's ass, not perform Black Hole Sun ever again, etc.
  6. I could not agree w/ you more. Dude just got old. The expectation of him as a performer w/ his old style of singing is nuts.
  7. I absolutely disagree w/ the "bare minimum" theory. I saw him w/ AC/DC in Florida, just saw Guns at ACL a couple months ago. The biggest difference between those two shows is that Axl Rose barely moved for AC/DC and zipped about for Guns. There's an expectation of movement expected of Axl w/ GN'R that he hasn't been able to move past. When I see a 60 year old guy running and singing and pouring sweat, bare minimum is removed from the equation for me. Dude is just old and doesn't have it like he used to. I'd always pick Axl singing over Axl screaming, but that's just me.
  8. Rob Tyner is the one and only true vocalist in the MC5.
  9. To each their own. I don't mind this guy. Has anybody seen a video w/ a vocal coach watching a newer Axl video? I'd be curious to hear their thoughts.
  10. I couldn't pick a whole setlist. It started to hurt my brain. 1. Open w/ Jungle - It's So Easy - Nightrain 2. Play Hard School, Atlas, and Oh, My God 3. New covers, please. Ruby Tuesday, Little Willy, throwbacks that Axl could kill 4. End the set w/ Paradise City. 5. Encore opens w/ Chinese Democracy and ends w/ Rocket Queen. Alternates in the middle. These are just my thoughts. . . We have a lot of similar thoughts. Nice.
  11. I saw the last performance of Oh, My God. One of my top 5 GN'R songs. And I can't remember a single note of it and the audio/video never leaked. Bittersweet!
  12. Don’t have any 2nd thoughts at all. Taking out all the jams streamlined the show and kept the energy high. The crowd doesn’t even know how to truly rock so everybody gave everybody enough space. It was hot as fuck, but can’t control that. Where the band was concerned, for their age and what we know they’re capable of, they were a 9 out of 10.
  13. That being said, a shorter setlist w/out that bullshit in the middle made for the best show I’ve seen since ‘02 Chicago and I can’t remember the Michigan show I was at in ‘88, so that should tell you how on fire Axl was. One for the record books.
