  1. All we need is Evader and a couple more horribly quality phone recordings of CD era tunes
  2. When it was announced I would argue that excitement in 2016 was super amazing and the high point of it all! 2016 as a whole in my opinion was a great year for GNR - Axl sounded good (even though he was even better in AC/DC), you had the Slash and Duff factor back, these huge grand scale shows, etc. From my perspective the fan excitement levels were huge and I haven't seen as much sheer positivity since probably 2008 during the "CD coming out / Axl chats" era of the forum and fandom To me, late 2017 going into 2018 was where I started becoming more and more disillusioned with the ba
  3. I don't think they truly have been able to work as a group successfully since Izzy left. It is telling that the last true originally-penned recordings made in a traditional "band" situation were the albums Izzy was still there for (the Illusions)
  4. Lol I remember when I was younger, back with dial up internet and information and videos not being immediately accessible, looking at the back of the Appetite CD and thinking that the guy with the low voice on ISO must have been that mysterious looking dude with the black hair a.k.a. Izzy Naive kid me thought that is was Axl on the high parts and Izzy would duet with him whenever they needed a low voice ha
  5. "Do you prefer Atlas Shrugged with drums at normal level or 2 dB higher?"
  6. A similar thing with Rush, Geddy Lee technically was not even in the first iteration - Jeff Jones was there before Geddy replaced him. But when people talk about Rush's "original lineup" they reference the Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, John Rutsey lineup because that is the first lineup to actually be the band to do anything with the name Rush So to me, I just don't worry about correct or incorrect because in context everyone knows what we mean by "original" anyways and I just roll with the colloquial terms For rock music in general, there is a tendency to not count any casual lineups t
  7. I just call the AFD lineup the "original lineup" in casual conversation because everyone knows what we mean when we say that. And I remember a couple of now-banned past members here always got GNR-triggered when someone called a non-Tracii Guns lineup the "original" lineup so I still do it in hopes I can piss off people that uptight about these semantics
  8. All in all, they have a lot of money from the reunion tour and they are a band, so if they couldn't go into a studio and bust out some recordings of both older CD era ideas or new tracks I would be very concerned lol It would be weird because either they record the tracks fresh or you have instrumental parts of members that haven't been in GNR for a minimum of 6 years, and a maximum of nearly 20 years. Which definitely is a great indicator of how much of a clusterfuck GNR as a band has been
  9. Sadly the only chance of that would be if the Illusion remasters come out with both disks included lol
  10. That is very true, I just know that when it came to the online aspect of his work and bootlegs he was super duper anal lol but unlike GNR Prince had the variation in setlists, constant new releases, and different projects always going to keep his fans happy
  11. Prince, when alive, was pretty anal about it all. Like there was a time where you could type in Prince on youtube and find virtually no videos featuring any of his studio material beyond like one or two
  12. Posted on a forum dedicated to a band who peaked 30 years ago, that is like Axl Rose complaining that his dinner guests arrived 2 hours late lol
  13. It is fantastic! I haven't played any FE titles since the American released Gameboy Advance ones in the mid-2000s so I think a lot of the modern day FE additions were new to me for this one - but I really love it. The GBA ones were great but definitely a "cutscene, battle, cutscene, battle" thing where the Monastery in this game really opens it up and lets the story breathe a bit
  14. In that case if they ever decided to open the show with Paradise City you will get home making great time at least lol
  15. I sincerely hope that with GNR's live shows postponed so much they have done some serious reflecting on their live show and ways to change it up not just for the fans but for themselves as well. I can only imagine how boring it must be playing the same songs in pretty much the same order for 5 years Not that I think said self-reflection has or will take place lol but one could only hope. I think even simply starting the setlist with a few different songs would help it out - or putting Paradise City earlier in the set and ending the show with Nightrain or something
  16. All in all the idea originally suggested of this very moment in time allowing outdoor venues being at 100 percent, is not a great idea IMO. The science does not back up that outdoor gatherings packed with tens of thousands of people like sardines in a venue with no ability so social distance, is smart at least at this point in time.
  17. I like it overall, but think that it is more of a cool idea than it is something that is a great song. Like with a bit of re-arranging and reworking I could see it being a solid tune but to me it just doesn't quite reach its potential
  18. You can catch COVID outside especially if everyone is squished together per the 100% capacity suggestion
  19. Lately I am doing a ton of Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Switch
  20. Soundgarden - Jesus Christ Pose
  21. Although Axl had better come prepared for these shows or else "Axl Rose still dealing with the aftermath of getting COVID" will be the news headlines if he Mickeys it up
  22. I think that Slash and Duff posted the "GNR at Coachella" ad and logo on their social media prior to the Troubador show although I could be remembering wrong. I do remember the first time we knew they were back in GNR being them posting the GNR logos on their own social media, prior to the Troubador show - but the Troubador show itself was unannounced and a total suprise
  23. Ultimately as unhappy as I am with TB when it comes to how they approach GNR's business, I think that Axl is the one the buck gets passed off to. Because at the end of the day, managers are hired by the band, and Axl is definitely the one calling the big shots for the band - otherwise since Slash and Duff's return we probably would have had 5 albums and every album re-released in box set format if their productivity is any indication lol If Axl didn't like or approve of what they are doing they would have been long gone by now
  24. I love GNR but in no world would they ever beat The Stones, and in no world where AC/DC would beat Zeppelin lol
  25. Lol they can do a whole trilogy. Berlin 2018, Bridge School 2012, and then a re-release of Rio 2011
