    Well, keep on the absolutely non-ironic practice of repeatedly complaining that people complain. That's in no way ridiculous. Thank goodness we have such a super-fan as you here to keep us all in check. Who knows where we'd be otherwise! 



    Once again. Where do you see the fucking complaint? I commented on shit people say here. And most of the time it's you, who says the shit. Can't help it.

    Does it hurt yours? You seem pretty good at complaining.

    Where do you see a complaint? I just asked a question, pointing out how ironic it is, how you accuse the band of lacking enthusiasm playing the same songs over and over again, while you (and with you I mean the people who's main pasttime it is to complain about the band) do just the same, complaining about the same shit over and over again, with full enthusiasm, I might add. And I would bet a lot, that if Slash or Duff would be asked about it, they wouldn't say that they are bored playing these songs (and I don't think that would be a lie to save face).

    The original drummer in Guns N' Roses wasn't Steven, it was Rob Gardner ;) After Rob left, Steven was reluctantly added to the band when they sorely needed a drummer for the Hell Tour and his puppy-eagerness settled the deal. Great drummer and integral to my favorite GN'R lineup, but he wasn't the original drummer of the band :)

    Izzy, though, was an original member of the band.

    Just being a pedantic ass.

    As far as albums is concerned, Steven is the original drummer. Who cares what happened before they recorded music?

    To put Gilby on the same level as Matt and above any of the other replacements is ridiculous though.

    The closest example that I can think of is Oasis...they were known as the New Beatles. Were they the Beatles NO!

    They had their own take on it but they worked very hard at being an evolved version of the Beatles.

    Many Beatles fans listened to Oasis not because they were them but because they were an original next generation take on them.

    I'm sorry, but that is bullshit. Maybe 15 year old Beatles fans, who discovered the Beatles in '90 (which is kinda like Nu-GNR fans, who discovered GNR in '02). But to suggest that real Beatles fans listened to Oasis because they supposedly sounded "like" the Beatles is ridiculous.

    You think the new Guns N' Roses, IF there is a new album, will be as crisp as AFD? There are multiple threads about Axl's deteriorating voice and lack of releasing music. Sometimes you can't do what you used to do but this would be a chance to work with musicians who can and you would still be involved.

    But it's not GNR. So why the fuck would anyone care?

    And no, I don't think it will be as good as AFD or UYI. So I'm not really in a rush to get a new one. But I'm also not interested in other people sounding like GNR.

    I mean have a band, like Guns N' Roses as an example,  select a musicians to form a band to be THE next generation/version of their own band and then help mentor them to play like the style of Guns

    N' Roses. Help them write, arrange music, produce, teach them about performing, etc.  and then , at some point, have less and less involvement and let them evolve then that band , at some point, find the THIRD Generation of Guns N' Roses.

    Like a monarchy succession of Rock!

    Why the hell would any band do that? Why the hell would any fan of a band care about them doing that? What kind of crazy concept is that supposed to be?? I'm a fan of a band. I don't care what musicians they are a fan of. I don't care if they want to turn other musicians into them. I don't care if they form the "Be like GNR school". I'm a fan of the original. I don't care about wannabes. And why would anyone want to give up their own identity to be turned into a knock off of another band?

    CD is described as being a sampler between the two albums worth of completed songs at or near the time of release. 

    I expect CD2 to be similar in overall quality. We've practically heard half of it so far.

    I wish they would have released both with the Bucket, Robin, and Brain stuff 100% intact, but sadly this is unlikely, except for perhaps as bonus material, eventually. 

    I enjoyed CD so I'm sure I'll like CD2.

    Cute, how you cling on to the hope that you will ever get to hear CD2.

    ....or we could stop caring! 

    I mean, the band really are doing their best to try and drive us all away! 

    Well. I've long stopped caring about a new album. If it comes, I will see whether it's any good and if it doesn't, well, I don't care. If they don't want to do it and only do it because they think they have to do it because of some whiny fans, well, then it will suck anyway.

    I think they just don't care so much now (at least in Slash's case) since they couldn't get Matt. As mentioned earlier, Slash doesn't have any drums in his IEM, it's basically just his guitar and occasionally a line or two of Axl. Sometimes a little drums for a song intro like YCBM. So once the tour got going he probably decided it is what it is and didn't care anymore about what Frank was doing or how fast the songs were or whatever. His body language certainly points to that, with a few exceptions (like SOYL, Slither).

    Like Matt said in his book, "It's just a gig."

    Right. :facepalm: You should do something about your bias. It's showing. The hired drummer does something, which supposedly no one asked him to do and no one really likes, but affects the performance of everyone in the band, but no one gives a shit and doesn't really say anything. If you really believe that...

    Your wrong here. Theres a interview with Frank I read awhile back saying how he tries and bring a new york style beat to the songs and adds his own fills.

    I was referring to the tempo. Obviously they are not going to tell him every thing he hits on those drums. But I'm sure if there is something they hate, they would tell him.

    I saw him in 2018 and thought it was a good performance. That said, I don’t have an ear for JBJ like I do for Axl. 

    I suppose it’s a good sign things are moving. That said not sure I’ll be comfortable at a show immediately. Although with pit tickets still available for MetLife, there might be social distancing regardless!

    I saw some videos from 2019, alerted by someone who just saw them and it sounded horrible, only saved by the band and audience singing along.

    I think at that point they didn't really care, plus in 2016 they didn't think the tour would go past August or so. Because yeah, at the Vegas shows a lot of the songs were way too fast.

    If he played it slow previously, why would he suddenly play it "way too fast" (personally to me the notion of it being too fast is bullshit anyway... to me it sounds as good as it ever did), without anyone prompting him? Musicians like Duff, Slash and Axl certainly would say something if it was bad and not what they wanted.
