    Count me in as excited if those two songs represent the sound/direction of a new album. 

    I have mixed feelings about this! First (and I know this is unpopular to say), but I love ABSURD and I think the work they've done revamping Silkworms was amazing, but I really think the demo version of Hardskool, with the long intro, was more classic rock, it was just better. I don't know if you notice, but Slash skips some notes (on purpose of course) during the verse if compared to the original version, the song was more fluid and then if feels more punkish and raw.

    I don't know it's the same feeling I had comparing Lars Ulrich's drum tone on the Black Album to the open snare of Saint Anger. Something just doesn't feel right.

    What I doubt is if after this "new record" (IF it happens) we will see any other GNR record at all.

    I think this will be the last one.

  2. To me, there will never be a "new" GNR record!

    There's Paul Stanley from Kiss and Roger Daltrey of The Who saying, today, there's no point of a new record for both bands, because no one cares anda fans just wanna hear classics, for emotional reasons or whatever.

    And the we see how everybody reacted to "Absurd" (I really like this version of the song), but the majority of the fans hated it, which I think Axl shot himself in the foot by releasing something "so different" first.

    Then "Hard Skool" was great, but the new version feels dilluted, generic, I don't know, it's not a WOW song anymore.

    I really think the band lost its momentum and then Fernando says there's a new record, Beta says there's a new record, Fortus says there's tons of material, Slash says nothing was recorded. Feels like they don't know what else to say to keep fans interested, but I tend to believe in Slash, which is sad.

    Last but not least, if they didn't record anything in 5 years why record anything now?

    I miss that Chinese-Democracy-anytime-now feeling.

  3. I read somewhere that the riff of Dr. Feelgood was kind of stolen from GNR.

    I need to find that article again, but some "insider" or maybe a member of the band/doug goldstein said that Nikki was around during that period when they were reharsing and creating UYI in 1989, and suddenly MC the released DF.

    You may have missed this but I'm not an admin and haven't had anything to do with running this site for a long time. 

    At the end of the day it really seems like you want to take a simple April Fools Day joke thread and turn it into something it just isn't. You can throw out all the wildly inaccurate accusations you want about the board, but that doesn't make them true. 

    If you feel personally attacked by a simple joke thread then there's nothing me, the other users here or the actual people who run the site can do to help you. 

    Thank you!

    The way Fernando had handled (or NOT handled) GN'Rs business is offensive as hell to most fans, so I guess we're even on that front. 

    Also, remember that this thread was created as a fun April Fools joke. So there was absolutely no need to come in and attempt to suck all the fun out of it by defending a guy who A) doesn't need you to defend him and B) there's no defense for anyway. 

    @RussTCB, you're absollutely right and maybe here is not my place anymore, but here's the deal:

    A) I'm not defending Fernando, I'm defending myself and this is something you guys will never understand, because I get it that it is hard to put yourself in someone’s shoes that’s so far away. But by the way some people here are interpreting my post you can see that some of them, which where born in the US, having English as their native tongue, can’t even read or interpret a simple text in English and can’t even tell the difference about racism and xenophobia. I wasn’t talking about racism anyway.

    B) But when you make fun of a Latino or a Brazilian or a Chinese or a third country country (I'm talking that in general), yep, you are being Xenophobic. 

    C) About sucking all the fun! Where's the fun, Russ? Where’s the fun in bullying, Russ? That’s the best April fools joke this forum ever had? Come on? Where is the fun? There's negative and a negative macho vibe everywhere in this forum!

    You are a great guy, Russ, the admins are great guys, there's lots of great people over here, I've been here since 2008, met a lot of great people, had fun, had my time!

    But this is not my place anymore, Russ! I don’t fit in anymore as you can see! And I think I’m glad to, but hey, keep up the good work man!

    Since I can’t delete my profile, I ask you to ban me from the forum! No hard feelings!

    THANK YOU, FOR REAL and to all the admins on this forum!

    What an odd, world you must live in, where you feel people on a forum discussing a band manager is a personal insult to you and the country you live in. 


    May you have a great life brother! I'm not gonna give one more single word for your to twist it! The world is a horrible place as it is! You should open your window and check it out! My best to you! My best to you all! An I'm sorry if I was misunderstood, it wasn't my intention!

    What utter shit. You do realise you aren't the only Brazilian who posts here right? 

    Claiming that people's opinions of someone is based on their ethnic origin is the very definition of accusing someone of racism. 

    And it's highly offensive to the people who post on here to make that suggestion. 

    WHAT??? You have just twisted my words in the most evil kind of way, like you didn't pay attention to a word that wrote and I know that I made myself very clear andI wasn't attacking you! My man, I'm done. This wasn's the purpose of this post.

    Look if it was an irish family, the criticm would be exactly the same. It has zero to do with skin colour, nationality or anything racial. It has everything to do with all the other things thst are mentioned. You can't cry racism when it's absolutely nothing do with the matter. Some people say "brazillian family took over management" no 1 this factual. No 2 if it was like I said an Irish family then that's what they'd say instead. 

    I also appreciate that there are actual biases in other areas (unrelated to gnr) towards Brazillians, but it's just not applicable here.

    Nah. It wasn't. Merck Mercuriadis destroyed, really destroyed what was left from the band, he helped to undermine Chinese Democracy and nobody talks about him! Stop talking about RACISM! WTF Do you think I'm black? Fernando is black? Beta is black? Did you know we consider ourselves white? We are not talking about colour? Or race? There's no racism involved in this discussion and this is the problem! There are black Brazilians, there are white Brazilians, there are Latino Brazilians, there are Japanese Brazilians, there are Ginger Brazilians. This discussion whas never about race or racism!

    Well, it certainly sounds like you're accusing people on here of racism....which is pretty outrageous. 

    Even English being your native language your lack of text interpretation is outrageous! I am not, I'm just point out a fact, not a racist fact, since Fernando is white! But maybe, and pay attention, maybe a xenophobic fact, which maybe you don't understand and that you cannot be blammed for! But I'm trying, as a Brazilian, a white Brazilian, to explain, with respect, with manner, in a light way (not so light), but maybe annoyed by the way a lot of you guys talk about another Brazilian in this forum.

    Maybe I'm right. maybe I'm wrong. I just think you guys bully too much sometimes.

    Not racism! But even if you are white (as I am) and you are from Latin America (as I am) you end up being treated differently in the US or in Europe or in Russia and so on...

    That's not racism... that's life, that's something you guys don't understand and that's something that hurts us as Brazilians (for example).

    If you still don't know why fernandont isn't the right man for the job, then you must've been living under a rock

    Please, enlighten me! Educate me! Who's AC/DC Manager? Who's Foo Fighter's Manager? Who's Metallica's Manager? Or U2's? Madonna's? I don't kown, let's seem Beyoncé.

    Oh, right, it doesn't matter because they own their carrers, they take their decisions ans have the final says in everything, like GNR!

    But if Fernando was American or European things would be a lot different for a lot of in this forum.

    You really should drop the 'racism/xenophobia' thing as it's trying to start a fire that really, really doesn't exist here. 

    I'm not accusing you or anybody, but it is what it seems from my point of view and from things that I have experienced. And just to make it very very clear, racism and xenophobia are two very different things. I'm not talking about racism. Not at all! And for all things considered I am white!

    All I'm wondering about is just how many unreleased potential albums, demos, takes, sessions, jams there are. Like how much do we not even know about?

    Let's see. From things I remember.

    Various 92-94 demos (all we know is "This I love" and "Back and forth again" and the 2 unreleased TSI tracks)

    94 Slash demos.

    94-96 Duff/Matt/sometimes Slash Jams

    94 Wylde sessions

    95 tapes with "Machine Gun"

    95 Izzy/Duff tapes for GNR (not the solo Izzy tapes)

    95 "Slash is back and we're doing great" sessions

    96-97 Matt/Duff trying one last time

    Rehearsals with Robin while Duff was still in the band

    98-99 1st planned album era

    00-02 so many bucket ideas probably...

    02-06 there's gotta be so much more left...

    06-08 honestly, not interested because bumblefoot shit all over everything he played on, but still there's gotta be a lot of stuff recorded if he was able to create so many takes

    09-11 the "oh yeah this band is totally legit a group feeling" era

    12-14 the "got CDII almost finished with DJ" stuff

    16-18 1st NITL attempt?

    19-20 2nd NITL attempt?


    Imagine just How much stuff is there that we'll never hear.

    And most of these eras we know nothing about. The only snippet of the pre-99 stuff we got was that jam from the Matt Sorum instructional video in late 97, which would probably be an indication of what the GNR jams sounded like before Slash and Duff were out.

    I believe he was still in the band when that instructional video was recorded, although it was IIRC a month before he was fired. I don't remember exactly anymore, lost interest in this band because of the negative fanbase. There's gotta be *tons* more.


    "Various 92-94 demos (all we know is "This I love" and "Back and forth again" and the 2 unreleased TSI tracks)"

    I know that they recorder "Beer and Cigarretes" from Hanoi Rocks, which one is the other from TSI?

    I didn't know why Axl was saying "shove it" but I thought it was pretty awesome.😄 In fact, I adopted that phrase. 

    As a Brazilian and by not having English as my first language this never came to my attention before. But then I just saw the sign and it all made sense!

  14. Have you guys noticed that during the Freddie Mercury Tribute, at the beginning of Paradise City there's a guy holding a "AXL, PISS OFF!" sign, right at the 00:37 mark and Axl screams "SHOVE IT" pointing rigth at the guy at the 00:48 mark? Look at Slash's reaction at the 00:50 mark, like "WTF! Not here, not now!"

    To be honest, I think it would've surpassed it. No tacky cover versions or b-grade material like Back Off Bitch or Garden of Eden. Just straight up killer rocknroll.

    I had to omit Estranged as you can't have four 8+min epics on one album.


    1. Right Next Door To Hell
    2. Dust N Bones
    3. Civil War
    4. Bad Obsession 
    5. Don't Cry
    6. Locomotive
    7. Breakdown
    8. Double Talkin Jive
    9. November Rain
    10. The Garden
    11. You Could Be Mine
    12. Bad Apples
    13. Coma

    Breakdown instead of Estranged?

    Dust N' Bones instead of Perfect Crime?

    Double Talkin Jive instead of Dead Horse?

    I don't know, man.

    I think the UYI records are a double album anomally that only worked as it is, even with My World and Shotgun Blues or Don't Damm Me.

    If The World, should be the lead single for the remix album in 2021. :D

    The Village If The World is my favorite. Interesting how the intro is similar to the album version, and not the version that leaked in 2008 which presumably was from between the Village and album version. 

    You know, to me there's no bad GNR song, even "My World" I don't think is a bad song, but what bugs me is that IFW does not sound like a GNR song, it would be great as a Axl Rose solo project, but not in a GNR record.

    But I also do have an unpopular opinion: I love the "Silkworms" version with fast drums.
