  1. Bumped to highlight just what a tremendous show Philadelphia 2012 from the Up Close and Personal tour was.

    For me, it's the greatest GN'R show since 2006/07 (excluding NITL, could argue a few 2016 shows). That is a big call, but from start to finish, the band were firing on all cylinders and I think musically during this period, the band were more tight than in 2010. Axl is arguably hit or miss throughout 2011/14, but on that evening, he was at the very top of his game and to my ears, exceeded his efforts throughout 2010.

    Discuss or don't. God bless Tommy Stinson :tommy:

  2. I watched the season premier of Dark Side of the Ring on Pillman. Austin mentioned that he doesn’t keep much memorabilia, but did keep a gold chain that Pillman gave him at the start of the Hollywood Blondes tag team. After I watched it, I went onto the A&E Austin documentary. It showed footage of Austin backstage after his neck break and he’s wearing it. I thought that was pretty deep (Pillman was still alive at that point)

    WWE must be desperate to extend it. AEW, Impact and ROH would all love to have him. Maybe he's holding out for a better deal? 

    I felt the same about Joe, though to a lesser extent. And they let him go too. 

    Yeah that’s what I’m hearing, it’s probably an ideal situation for him though as they’ll inevitably throw a barrel load of cash at him, but will let him see what is available elsewhere as AEW don’t hold their talent exclusively so that’s why you see a lot of them jumping about other promotions/Japan etc.

    It was mad about Joe, though as I said, I’m not clued up with what’s happening nowadays and thought it was surprising to see him on commentary. I don’t know if this is the case, but my friend told me that he was asked to fill in on commentary and was so good at it that Vince wanted to keep him there. I seen recently that WWE said he had an injury, which Joe said was untrue. Waste of talent. Same with Balor, he shouldn’t be on NXT.

    Jesus @Deanyou weren't kidding. I dipped my toe in the reddit water and picked up 10 new subscribers so far on YouTube. Holy shit thanks :)

    That is tremendous. The funny thing is, you already have the two hardest things down to a tee - great videos and a wealth of the rarities that you need to review :lol: You're on the ball, the rest will take care of itself!

    I barely know anything about reddit. It's something that makes me feel old actually lol. Reddit is the first tech baeed communication where I've thought "meh, I don't want to learn all about that" haha. 

    Having said that, I really should start an account and do exactly what you said. 

    There is probably a much more easier way to navigate through Reddit, but googling 'enter band name Reddit' will no doubt bring up a dedicated page for all posts related to that band with a lot of members. Van Halen as an example, I can see that they have 5000 members with posts that happen daily, so that community is somewhat active and should guarantee that the video would get viewed, especially with the rarity of the LP in question. You're good at advertising both the video and the podcast, so just use it the same as you do approaching it on social media and on the forums, maybe throwing in a few additional bits relating to the community of the band in question.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/vanhalen/

    Don't just stop there though, as you can google or search on Reddit for designated music channels, Vinyl, video's, etc etc, anything really, just type something in and see what comes up.

    The layout may take a bit of getting used to, it's like a social media platform from the early 00's, though I believed they've just updated it to be more user friendly. 

    You're doing great, it may be frustrating at not seeing the numbers growing as quickly as you'd like, but it is growing and you're sticking to regular content that will help get those numbers up in the long run. Look at what you guys have done in over a year? Massive strides in such a short space of time. You have the correct mentality with striving for more and it'll happen, just keep doing what you're doing!

    :lol:

    I'm sure you could tell from my tone, but I was trying really hard to be nice about the album because we try to keep the show positive. But man oh man, I totally agree with you. It doesn't absolutely nothing for me. 

    As far as the channel goes, I'm hoping to start getting two videos up per week fairly soon. I'm still getting my game plan together. I want to make sure it's all quality content without putting videos up just to put videos up. The channel was growing really fast and then stalled completely. So I'm just trying to think of new ways to grow it. 

    The channel will pick up again, just keep doing what you're doing as the videos are of high standard and it helps with you covering such a wide scope. Do you use Reddit for sharing the videos to the communities that it would appeal to? That may be a good shout, it's not something I use very often but I'm sure you'll pick up a few subs doing that!

  7. Good Charlotte, Bowling For Soup, Sum 41, these guys to name but a few...that period of music just didn't do anything for me and I think they all sound the same. I tried The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows and Sic Transit Gloria...Gloria Fades and that was plenty. If it came to having to choose between listening to that album in it's entirety for the rest of eternity or Silkworms, I'd go with Silkworms, and that is saying A LOT! It's all in the eye of the beholder and all that, that's the beauty of music! But yeah, Silkworms wins that contest hands down :lol:

    Great news on potentially getting 2 videos up on the channel a week. I could definitely be doing with that!

    Didn’t brain himself say back in like 2009 that he had worked on like 30 songs from 2000-2005?

    Probably, I don’t recall that interview but I remembered being baffled at his response to Brando a few years back on their first interview and thought that couldn’t be the case, especially with around 70 having been worked on with Freese up to ‘99

    I feel like you have to be a certain age range to appreciate some of these, Macho and Roddy were great for their day but they wouldn't mean anything to the current AEW or NXT fan.

    That's most likely the case, though you'll have a portion of the younger generation that will watch anything WWE related or watch on the basis of having genuine interest in what was around before their time, who influenced the Wrestlers that they watch etc.

  10. A&E have been airing WWE's Most Wanted Treasure's. Two episodes so far with Mick Foley and one on the Brothers of Destruction. I'm looking forward to the rest of them, they've been great so far and the sort of program I could binge watch very easily! A trip down memory lane for both the viewer and the fellas themselves. That's the sort of product that they should have been doing on the Network.

    New season of Dark Side of the Ring too, though haven't caught the first episode yet. I'll get that watched at some point today!

    Enjoy the record. Very good instrumentally with a cohesive “vibe” throughout IMHO. Really like “Rusted N’ Busted”, which to me is easily Hangover or even Pawnshop quality.

    Gilby’s been knocked for having a “thin” voice for a long time (think he’s even mentioned/acknowledged it). That said- I think he has the attitude that if “Gilby Clarke” is going on the front of the record- Gilby Clarke needs to be singing on the record. Maybe hurts the final product- but on the other hand I find I respect that old school approach.

    Anyway, when it comes to true solo records- I still always enjoy Gilby’s and Tommy’s the most..

     

    I'm not in any hurry to check out Gilby's new record though will most likely give it a spin at some point, but I agree on Tommy. Out of all the solo records/side projects that members have put out, Tommy's is the best in my opinion. The two Bash and Pop records are tremendous also.

    I just call the AFD lineup the "original lineup" in casual convsersation 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 :lol:

     

    I'm sort of on the same boat. I like dropping that the greatest songwriting rhythm guitarist to ever grace Guns N' Roses is a geezer that jumped between two surnames and played some of the most beautiful guitar ever recorded on a cover of a Rolling Stones song....:lol:
