  1. It would've been cool to see years ago, but now even the CD fans generally don't care much about it and the footage is essentially worthless. I'd probably watch it a couple times out of curiosity, but I expect it to be kinda boring and underwhelming if we do ever see it...

    Well... If the best it isn't on Chinese, we haven't heard the best yet!! It 's definitely not on the leaks.  

    I don't think It's Brain if its about the same time the other leaks were. More likely to be Josh.

    If the greats were supposed to be on the next, we haven't heard any song of the next record yet! Definitely it wasn't on the leak either


    State of Grace and Perhaps have the potential to be great in finished form, but there's also a very good chance they've become cluttered, overproduced disasters... I hate to think what Atlas might've sounded like had it been released in 2008. There were some very good instrumentals in the Village leaks, too. (Soul Monster, Oklahoma, Zodiac, Dummy)

    It wasn't released cause they were saving great songs for the next record I guess. It probably didn't fit the tone of Chinese Democracy in Axl's opinion or something.


    Nah, I don't think the 'saving the big guns for later' thing is necessarily true (and I don't think Hardschool is a big gun, either). Seems like the leaks determined the tracklist more than anything else.

    Lies They Tell: Hi Axl! Chinese Democracy awesome, but it's a pretty ballady album compared to previous GNR albums. Is this the new direction of GNR or will some of the future GNR albums be more focused on hard rocking songs again?

    Axl: What I know is it's the record that was able to get through the red tape and get itself out there while helping friends, loved ones and myself along the way. The whole ballad or rocker thing has never been something I've ever cared too much about. There's some meaner sections ahead but a particular focus once there were a few of the newer guys together was to bring a bit more beauty into our efforts.

    The vocals remind me of Look At Your Game Girl. And you don't count it? Sorry but any vocals from Axl should be counted no matter what stage of completion they're in, given the amount of recorded vocals we have from him and the time in which it's been since the last release of said vocals.


    He's mumbling and singing the same few lyrics and 'oohs' and 'aahs' for 3-4 minutes... no I don't count it. The version we heard is more of an idea than it is a song. Do you honestly listen to in playlists or anything?

    I actually really like that song for what it is. The beat is fun. And I think Axl's vocals are astounding ... Although I think every vocal track from Axl is lol 


    The vocals are a scratch take, and they sound like it. WTTJ, Coma, TWAT, those are astounding vocals...

    The version that we heard sounds like such an early version that I don't even count it when I think of the leaked songs with vocals. Same with Quicksong, although instrumentally QS sounds a lot more finished than Nothing.

    Guys, Robin Finck left Guns N Roses in 2008. Buckethead in 2004. What fucking planet are you lot living on to think that they would appear on any new GNR album when Slash is in the band now! Like, seriously!? What the actual fuck?!


    If they release anything, it wouldn't surprise me if the credits were intentionally vague. Like instead of saying 'Guitar solo - Slash, Rhythm guitar - Richard' it will just say 'all songs written and performed by Guns N' Roses'.

    Slash will handle almost all the leads of course, but the rhythm guitars or maybe the odd lick here or there could be a patchwork of Richard, Slash, Paul, Axl, Robin, Bucket or whoever else, especially if they're CD era songs that have been 'done' for 15 years. Nothing about this band is logical...
