  1. Assuming they still would've made it 2 LP's, this would've been as great as AFD (and it would've just barely fit on a cd) Side 1: Civil War You Could Be Mine Perfect Crime Live And Let Die Side 2: Right Next Door To Hell Dust N' Bones Pretty Tied Up Don't Cry Side 3: The Garden Garden Of Eden Dead Horse Don't Damn Me Side 4: Coma Locomotive
  2. Let's not pretend Frank plays Estranged or November Rain or others perfectly either...
  3. Seeing a bunch of 60-year-old multimillionaires trying to recapture AFD would be pathetic. They already missed every opportunity to do it right... just leave it in the past.
  4. There's too much to list, honestly. My favourite artist just announced he's dropping 4 projects next month - 2 collab albums and 2 full solo albums. He's got a 3rd album dropping a couple months later (produced by Shooter Jennings) plus a full movie to accompany the album he's releasing at the end of April... and he's already released 1 collab album earlier this year. Meanwhile, here we are with GNR...
  5. Assuming they want to release another album, they should set aside 15-20 CD era songs for the current lineup to work with, and release everything else in a box set after they've called it a day. A box set of CD era material is pretty much the grail at this point... honestly the 2019 leaks were pretty much a "2000 Intentions" box set but I'd still like to hear everything from 1999-2010 eventually.
  6. Axl: We owe it to Paul "The Original Guitar Player" Huge to include it. If I'd had time to really complete Appetite, this is how it would've sounded anyway. Slash and Duff: Goddammit...
  7. If it were ever gonna be released, I'd think it would be in a CD box set. And even then, it's just a curiosity thing for a few hardcore fans. It would be cool to hear it once, just to know what it sounded like and to hear Axl's '99 vocals on some of those songs, but if you think they wouldn't get slammed for releasing it in any other context... You're fuckin' Crazy.
  8. The only time I can think of where I had an issue with a seller, was when I ordered a bootleg Buckethead 7". It came from Eastern Europe and at some point I just assumed it was lost in the mail... then it randomly showed up at my door like 6 months after I ordered it
  9. I used to hit Neptoon records and Scrape records whenever I was in Van. Scrape was the best, shame it closed down a few years ago. The stores around Victoria kinda suck, but there's a couple decent ones. Tbh I get most of my records online now.
  10. I really think the AC/DC gig followed by excessive NITL touring has fucked his voice up beyond repair, unfortunately. He can still sound decent but I think even a 2016 level, let alone 2010 or his prime, is less likely than new music... and I don't think new music is very likely!
  11. I couldn't care less about future touring, so Axl sounding like his prime again but still singing the same songs he's sung a billion times would still be boring. New music or GTFO.
  12. At what point did they actively root for Putin over Biden? It's pretty obvious that Biden wouldn't do well in that debate... pointing that out doesn't mean 'rooting for' Putin. It's just acknowledging reality. On a side note, I got a good laugh out of this
  13. Yea, at this point my expectations from the band are pretty low, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
  14. I think if they've agreed to do CD era songs, they'll let Axl get the sound he wants from the recordings, then just play the songs their way live, like they do with CD, Better, etc.
  15. Well yea, I'm not saying it's ideal, it just wouldn't be too surprising...
  16. With any normal band, the answer would be obviously no. But with Axl it wouldn't be that surprising. Not that it's likely, but it's certainly not out of the question. When you spend 20 years (!!) with certain songs, you become attached to certain parts. I'd guess that the 'texture' of the rhythm tracks will largely stay the same - Slash will play all the lead parts and Duff will re-record the bass obviously, but it wouldn't be too surprising if the rhythm tracks were spliced together with guitar parts by Fortus, Paul, Axl, Slash, etc. and the drum tracks were spliced together like on IRS.
  17. The clean voice didn't really "come out of nowhere" in '01-02. On Anxious Disease he was definitely getting closer to the "CD" voice but still had some classic Axl tone, then the CD voice was all over Live Era in '99... I always kinda believed the rumor that the label rejected an album in 2010, but I think sometime between trying to cancel the tour on twitter and the last show in Abu Dhabi, he basically said 'fuck it', and after the shows in December didn't really sing or take care of his voice for the next 10 months, resulting in the Rio disaster. And his voice was already getting thinne
  18. Probably... or at least all the songs with vocals. No, but I don't think that really "exists" in the way people think it does. It's probably either mostly instrumental or has scratch vocals. I think it was Dave Abbruzzese who talked about playing AFD in full (this would've been before the CD sessions really started) and Axl only sang half the lines, in half voice. And since Axl referred to AFD '99 as something to basically just get the band used to those songs, I would imagine it wouldn't have "full" vocals. That's just my guess, though. But there was an instrumental versio
  19. Even at the lowest points of the CD years (2013-14) there was still at least some indication that Axl wanted to release music. That has not been the case in the NITL era. After watching them squander all the momentum they had 5 years ago, this feels worse than any inactive periods in the CD era.
  20. It is truly an album meant to be experienced in a sensory deprivation chamber. He was so ahead of his time that his new age methods weren't appreciated until he reached old age. As Axl would say - better late than never!
  21. This is only true if you're under the influence of psilocybin in a dimly lit room (<200 lumens) that has been blessed by shamanic ritual within the last 71 minutes. The orbital paths of Jupiter and Saturn are only relevant if you listen to the track outside the Chinese month of April. Otherwise, the noise gate could be at 4.87db and you'd never be able to tell! My point was that Carlos had soul and feeling in his playing. Gary is a technical virtuoso but his playing is emotionless. And as everyone knows, feelings > facts. Fact.
  22. Gary Sunshine is an impressive player but he just didn't fit with Guns N' Roses. His sound was just plinky plonky technical wankery. That's when the band really became an Axl solo project.
  23. Insiders have confirmed that legendary GNR guitarist Carlos Booy has returned to the band and has ghostwritten at least 3 albums worth of material, including lyrics. There is serious debate within the GNR camp about whether or not to include CD2 as the fourth disc in the upcoming quintuple album. Duff, Richard and Melissa are all in favor of including CD2, while Slash, Frank and Dizzy prefer the original plan of The Spaghetti Incident 2 being the fourth disc. Nobody has heard from Axl in the last 10 months and they are afraid to wake him from his hibernation, so the issue is expected to b
  24. At best, they'll only release one more album, so they may as well go big or go home. 10-disc box set or bust. (The 11-disc special edition set will contain the CD remix album, and the 12-disc Ultimate Collectors Edition™ will contain the remix album and a partially* edited recording of Axl's phone call to Slash in 2015) *heavily
