  1. Maybe all the youtubers posting GNR videos just had the wrong idea, GNR were only taking them down because they were in color and now B&W
  2. I read it late last year, indeed it is a great book! In fact I would say it is one of my favorite rock memoirs I have ever read - he was incredibly honest from what I thought and I really like that the book was all killer no filler - he got straight to the meat and potatoes of what we all came to the book for. Certain passages of the tales of Chris and Rich, specifically the ones with Rich and the fallout of the tour with Jimmy Page, really just made me angry on behalf of Steve just reading them Not many bands can claim to be in the same realm of missed opportunities as Guns N' Rose
  3. Thanks for posting! Man I really wish they gave the green light on the three different album covers that red hand cover looks great
  4. I personally would rather have Slash do a full reworking of the solos and parts and Slashify them just in my own opinion if I could selfishly imagine my vision for a GNR album. To me that is the perk of getting Duff and Slash back, bringing in a lot of the sounds that made AFD and the Illusions so great. I know Slash goes into shred mode live a lot the fast few years, but he still has the goods of a brilliant signature sound and that sound to me is just as GNR as Axl's voice so I hope they milk Slash's guitar for all its worth on this next album Although it is prob
  5. It is possible that if Dizzy had to find some way to come up with his own parts so he wasn't just standing there looking cool on stage, he could have come up with his parts during those sessions- although if the live shows are any indication he would be so low in the mix where it doesn't matter I am really curious to hear the re-recorded AFD in general. Axl's voice in that era I thought was fantastic! Almost closer to the clean-yet-somewhat raspy vocals of 1986 and 1987 which he never really achieved sound-wise since, listening back to that SCOM '99 bit Wasn't there that whole cont
  6. Considering even in 2001 the lineup had Bucket, Fortus, and Brain which already means a third of the band who was on the AFD re-recording was different, I would say its importance came and went by the time it actually transpired Every lineup has had a different take on the material depending on who is in the band since 2001, and a different feel, so I don't know if there is any through-line that starts with that AFD re-recording
  7. OIAM was and is, going to be an anomaly I think - due to the racial compoment and public controversy it caused when it came out. Considering GNR soundchecked Pretty Tied Up during the Mexico City soundcheck this year, haven't used any words in Back of Bitch that they haven't used in songs like It's So Easy, and Get In The Ring basically being a rock diss track of the press and one particular dude, I can't imagine the album being censored or musically any different beyond a remaster
  8. Thanks @DTJ80 Definitely plan on subscribing to that to support the whole thing they have going, Reckless Road and Marc's insight has easily been for me the most illuminating thing regarding the beginnings of GNR besides what Slash and Duff have told in their books so I hope they have a decent sized audience that can keep their endeavors going
  9. I absolutely love the studio version Pearl Jam did with her, that was the first version I ever heard and it took me a while to finally listen to this original version
  10. The recent reissue of Goats Head Soup.. great remix by Giles Martin!
  11. That OTGM video sounding great! Damn it really drives home how Axl was in such fine form in 2016. Hearing the stark contrast from that to now you really do have to wonder if it was indeed his stint with AC/DC that did some damage on his voice
  12. I heard that if the Billy Bush tape was a few minutes longer we could have heard Trump mention to Billy how Cornshucker is the greatest song of the 20th century
  13. Thanks for the info, I was hoping it was still going! I hope they are getting a decent audience pull to keep going with them
  14. VMA's 2002 intro is so epic from Axl that I think one of the biggest shames of GNR history is how that amazing intro was followed up with one of the most awkwardly sung performances of Jungle to ever exist lol
