  1. For single songs, You're Crazy from Brooklyn Bowl 2013. Axl's voice went downhill from there, but YC was ridiculously good.
  2. Even beyond the hilarity of him singing that one, I'm really confident it would've fit his Axl/DC voice really well after hearing how he did the early Brian stuff.
  3. Wow, they leaked the lead single off the new album Strap It On?!?
  4. Don't disagree that they could absolutely get away with that. Personally? Don't know how I feel about having to digest an album for upwards of a year before any of it gets played live. But different strokes and all that, and my personal feelings don't matter in the end anyways
  5. Are you referring to the rerecorded WTTJ from The Village sessions? If so, I quite liked the instrumental, but agree it is quite underwhelming without vocals.
  6. I mean, a couple of the bands I follow closely are holding back albums because of the pandemic, granted the situations are a little different. Iron Maiden supposedly would've had their new album out this fall, but in their case the final leg of their current tour got postponed from this summer to next summer. The Dropkick Murphys have also postponed their new album - it was originally supposed to be out in the spring, then it got postponed to September, and now it's on hold indefinitely (Though they have at least released a single from it in the meantime). I don't think there's any right
  7. No matter how NTTD ends up being as a whole, Rami Malek will 100% be a better villain than evil Steve Jobs. That alone can't put it in the same league as TND.
  8. On the contrary, I’d imagine an Appetite-era demo doesn’t exist, since both of the November Rain demos as well as Back Off Bitch were included in the AFD super deluxe. If a demo of YCBM existed from that era, wouldn’t that have made sense to be there also?
  9. You can actually turn that off - when on mobile, go to the top menu bar, and click the slider icon - in the pop-up window you can select to turn off the bottom menu bar on mobile. Attached are screenshots to show you how to do it.
  10. We’re aware of it, I believe @downzy said he’d look into it today.
  11. Trailer for season 2 looks great. Looks like it's going to be a little "bigger" than season 1, and it's going to dig deeper into Star Wars lore. I'm fully onboard with both of those.
  12. I’m not usually one to shell out for these super deluxe editions of albums, but I’m seriously considering getting the super deluxe 40th anniversary edition of Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades when it’s released next month. That set is ridiculously stacked for a price tag that isn’t totally outrageous, and besides all of the vinyls in the set, it’s got the album in 5.1 on DVD.
  13. Almost every virtual concert/festival I've seen so far has been hosted on a platform that can easily be watched on a TV. I've "attended" a few of these virtual festivals and concerts now over the Summer. Some have been better than others, and on the festivals you get a wildly varying level of quality of content. Wacken World Wide has been my favorite virtual festival so far - good to see some of their archival footage in HD, and a healthy dose of new performances for the streaming event. My favorite virtual concerts have still been the two the Dropkick Murphys have done though; th
  14. Hit the nail on the head right there. If Slash wants to write a new solo to these songs, fair play. But he doesn't do that, he improvises them nightly, and it shows. All his solos on CD songs are meandering, boring, and pointless. I would honestly take Ashba's take on the TIL solo over damn near any rendition of it I've heard from Slash, and I don't say that lightly. But at least Ashba crafted the solo and made it his own thing, even if it sucked. Slash can't even put in the effort to do that. The lone exception to how I feel on his CD solos is the title track, that's fine. And not coincidenta
  15. That's exactly how I feel too - "least favorite" songs on Appetite is an incredibly relative qualifier. Picking favorite songs on that album is like picking favorite kids. But, gun to my head, OTGM is near the bottom for me.
  16. Detroit 2016 was the first (And only) time I've seen OTGM live. It's always been one of my least favorite songs on Appetite, but when they play it with Axl in shape vocally, it punches you right in the face. It's so damn aggressive. Highlight of the gig for me, hands down.
  17. Glad to hear a new album is still on the radar for sooner rather than later (hopefully).
  18. It does look a little over the top, but not in a bad way at all. Cinematography is on point judging by the trailer. The first trailer did more to get me excited for it than this one has, but it's not a bad trailer by any means.
  19. I don’t disagree with the points you bring up, but those aren’t really the same as chemistry within the band. The crowd wanting to hear certain solo spots over other solo spots from different members is more of a popularity thing, it’s not because the band didn’t have chemistry. Ashba solo spots were definitely boring, but I don’t blame the band for that, I blame Ashba because he wrote them. On the contrary, Fortus’ Bond Theme and Bumble’s Pink Panther Theme were super cool, probably my favorite solo spots I’ve seen from GN’R. The latter even featured a large chunk of the then-current lineup w
  20. As an attendee, I haven’t felt like there’s been much of a chemistry shift between the Ashba/BBF/Fortus lineup than the NITL lineup. The band generally has good chemistry with one another I’ve felt with a couple outliers (Ashba and Pitman felt like lone wolves in the former, Melissa in the latter), with Axl not carrying much chemistry with anyone in either lineup except little glimmers of it here and there. Truth be told, I felt like Axl had a lot more chemistry with the rest of the band in AC/DC than I feel like I’ve ever witnessed firsthand with GN’R.
  21. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/chris-slade-interview-acdc-the-firm-1041811/ Some interesting bits in this, both about AC/DC and about other acts he’s played with. The picture he paints of the management and organization within AC/DC is a lot more chaotic than I’d have imagined, though maybe that’s just the air of uncertainty there was when Brian left abruptly. But the big standout to me is, first of all he doesn’t necessarily believe any of the rumors about a new album with Phil back in the fold, and second of all to his knowledge he is still the current drummer
  22. Exactly. I’d be going to it on my own, so it would be $100 for just me. If you’ve got people to go with it wouldn’t be so bad.
