  1. Right. If Steven and Izzy weren't involved then, locally in the states-- I don't see them being flown overseas in the middle of all this for shows that may not even happen/ or be allowed to draw the crowds to make it worth the band's while to split that "fp money" with any former members. but who knows... It'd be great if it happens.
  2. Wow, look at all those formats & related merch! That's the way to release an album! I've been hooked on their S&M 2 version of All Within My Hands.
  3. He kinda jumped up onto one of the monitors on stage, and must've cracked the bone immediately because he just as quickly fell backwards. Got back up, pants split, broken foot and kept fucking going. -- I knew the "ought" would get flack, obviously, there's a lot of "oughts"-- but seeing Duff talking about the Troubadour, spurred this post. I had to at least put it out there... Initially I was thinking they could shoot something new from there, but as you guys have pointed out-- There already is footage from the 2016 show and streaming that odyssey would probably fetch more in
  4. Lmao! No, but I do feel like there's a good amount of people, who would pay a reasonable price to watch something like this.. make a little dough for the band and the place where it all started. Hell, they could shoot a music vid there. Something. I'll keep on the lookout for the Duff clip.
  5. Last night, Los Angeles KCAL 9 did a piece on the Troubadour being in danger of closing for good as a result of the pandemic. I didn't catch the whole thing but they interviewed Duff. I don't know if it was new or really what was said. They haven't posted it online yet but this is their sister station's month-old report on the Troubadour Go Fund Me. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/05/06/troubadour-gofundme-coronavirus-west-hollywood/ Got me thinking though. What if they did a live set from the empty Troubadour? Do a kickass warm up gig like 2016. Help a cla
  6. Chris Pitman and his sub-bass strike again!
  7. There were plenty of poor pressings that came out at launch. The one I got had issues. The album itself is really dynamic and well mixed, which got some high praise in the time of Death Magnetic loudness. I've mainly listened on CD and there are so many layers, you can hear something new everytime you listen.
  8. One of the best things they've done in awhile. It gave me a much greater appreciation for Kris Kristofferson. I haven't caught the whole series but it's interesting looking back on that era of country and how mainstream it was, still scrutinized by many-- But without being hokey. It was authentic, fucking heartfelt, well crafted and produced. This mainstream stuff today, is like parody party music. Makes Cletus T. Judd look modest. The zenith had to be the 90's, but even then it was getting goofy-- guys trying to make wacky music videos for airtime.
  9. I'm rolling with CDs in the car. I never thought that would become antiquated, but here we are. Most iPods I've had pretty much bit the dust in the battery department fairly quickly after warranty (planned obsolescence). Had a classic iPod years ago. Certainly one of the best products of the 00's. Eventually the battery had to be replaced, then the motherboard went out some time later. That thing was a beast though. If you wanted to get tricky you could even play a few games on there. Phase was the music/ rhythm game that used your own tunes. Had two or three iPod touches. Batte
  10. Anybody been watching the Ken Burns Country Music series on pbs?
  11. Ahhh-- I heard something about this-- thanks for reminding me. On The Beach is such good album-- Top to bottom. Neil has put out so much, I've barely scratched the surface of his later works. As others have said Psychedelic Pill is a great throwback, but personally Greendale & Are You Passionate -- are my favorite recent albums of his. Not every song is a hit, but I would bet there's at least one or two tracks that would resonate with any Neil fan. Wasn't Harvest Moon in the 90's? I don't remember the whole album but that single is right up ther
  12. I've become so accustomed to the "f'n" I had to re-read this post a couple times to see the difference between the post you quoted.
  13. There seems to be two official Vive Latino live streams on youtube. Where are we getting the info that Guns won't be on the stream?
  14. I'm surprised they went with Georgia Tech's stadium as opposed to the new Mercedes Stadium. It's cooler that they did though. I stayed and worked right by there a few years ago. Ate Goodfellas pizza nearly everyday. It should be a beautiful night in ATL.
  15. I didn't really see it as a critique of GnR. I think that was mainly more a testament to how good of a drummer/songwriter Chad Smith is and how well they meshed-- In spite of Ozzy's people giving them such a tight deadline. Obviously no overt mentions of a new album, but my takeaways from the interview re: new material was that Slash & Duff are aware of "dropping" singles before the album is completed (as he mentioned Ozzy did) Duff wanted to discuss upcoming GnR stuff but wasn't sure of what was announced already. And Duff did say they were going to begin rehearsing later t
