  1. I don't think Axl talks to any current or past member unless it is business/Guns related. Maybe the very occasional "Happy insert occasion" or "Congrats insert occasion" . From the current band, I get the impression there are 3 camps. 1) Axl and Team Brazil 2) Slash/Duff 3) Richard, Frank, Melissa This is just the general vibe that I get based off of social media, interviews, pictures etc Thats not to say they don't occasionally talk or even hangout for a bit on tour.
  2. I think rock music in general lost the "Fun" aspect back in the early 90's and its never really returned. The grunge era really kick started rock music been associated with depression, suicide, emo etc and its kind of still like that today.
  3. This is again something that comes down to Axl. He always wanted the music to grow and evolve. We need 3 guitars. We need 2 keyboard players. We need samples. Cut and paste 5 solo's together. For some reason, it became almost unacceptable to just write a rock song or break out the acoustic guitars and write.
  4. Exactly. There’s a quote from 90s Slash in the Paul Huge thread. The general gist was that Axl wanted to write with Paul, maybe keep Gilby as a touring guitarist and maybe even have 3 guitars. I can picture 90s Slash just rolling his eyes and chuckling at that.
  5. I don't mind if they get in a room together and decide that they want to work on an old song as a band. Hell, they can even use Axl's old vocals if they are already recorded. But if you end up with Slash 2020 on lead guitar, Josh Freese 2000 on drums, Tommy Stinson 2004 on bass and have most of the current band not involved... well that's a strange way of making music that likely won't sound natural. Chemistry is a big part of music. You can hear it clearly on Appetite and Lies. Less so on the Illusions. Not really much at all on CD.
  6. The only way I think that a new album will ever be good is if they get in a room together and make an album TOGETHER. Sadly, I don't see that happening. Any new album will likely be Slash and Duff making contributions to Axl's solo music from 20 odd years ago. Or a bunch of copying/pasting of parts recorded over a 20+ year period. I've always preferred live music to studio. Its just more honest.
  7. This is probably the most cringe worthy thread I have ever read on a Guns N Roses forum...
  8. It’s funny watching people try to convince themselves they like silkworms
  9. If Absurd and Hardschool is the best they got, maybe we don’t need new music…
  10. Anyone who has ever even played a musical instrument will understand how simply boring it is to keep playing the same things over and over and over again. I can't say I blame Slash for going into auto pilot mode
  11. This is actually an honest/legit question... before Covid I believe that these shows were getting marketed as an all new show? I know that was the case for the European shows at least that I have tickets for. I think all of us can see that this is still the exact same show. Which is fair enough if you didn't mention that it would be an all new show... But they did mention it, and then proceeded to play the same setlist in the exact same order as always.
  12. Some the above suggestions might work. What about a go fund me page or something similar? If pay to be disappointed by guns every so often
  13. To be fair, there is lots of Illusions material that could be added if they wanted.
  14. Is this show supposed to be the “All new show “ or did they scrap that? Based on the rehearsals, it seems like it’ll be a NITL show with maybe Hardschool added.
  15. I’m excited but I imagine there will be a meltdown on here when it’s Easy, Brownstone, CD, Jungle etc
  16. Slash deserves so much credit. This is what musicians live for! To release new music. I believe this will be his 9th album since Guns. And that excludes all the live albums etc. I'll never understand why Axl can't just do the same. Not everything needs to be epic.
  17. I remember how excited I was to see what appeared to be a pro shot Locomotive on their Instagram page. And then I listened to it... It sounded worse than the version already on youtube recorded with someone's phone.
  18. The thing that makes me hate the entire CD era is the lack of guitar driven songs. There isn’t a memorable riff on CD
  19. “In general, Guns became a corporate rock band” That was in 92... would love to hear this guys opinions now haha
  20. Unpopular opinion but I was never fond of those acoustic slots in the show.
