  1. It's fans like you why GNR can get away with not putting out new music decades at a time. You do know that, don't you?
  2. New music was never coming in 2020. A live debut of Hard School was all we were ever going to get and that's only because it leaked.
  3. Two guitar solos on a whole record. Stuff like Shacklers Revenge, Scraped, Prostitute, If The World and Sorry have about as much in common with the GNR sound as Taylor Swifts last record. TBH, even though I much prefer CD to SMKC/VR, I think Slash's solo work sounds way more GNR-esque than CD does.
  4. I think the trouble with CD is, it sounds like exactly 1/5 of a Guns N Roses record. Axl's DNA is all over it and it simply isn't true that it doesn't sound like a GNR record, but it sounds like 1/5 of a GNR record, which is what it is. The same way Slash's solo stuff sound GNR-esque, but missing the magic of Axl's singing and lyrics, Izzy's songwriting and Duff and Steven/Matt's backbone. They all wanted to be greater than the sum of their parts and it's such a colossal shame that none of them have been able to get their shit together and come up with a proper GNR record since 1992.
  5. I always thought RBTL sounded like a Velvet Revolver track. Myles even sounds a bit like Scott on it. Cool track. Best on the album though is easily The Great Pretender. Mind Your Manners was the best rocker.
  6. Always up for whatever Slash has to offer. Sometimes I love it, sometimes not, but it's always worth checking out and even on his least-inspired albums (Libertad for example), there's still a handful of keepers. Slash, unlike Axl, remains an artist.
  7. I don't expect new music from these guys anymore. If it happens, great, I'll be there with bells on, but I don't personally believe it's going to. The nostalgia tours bore the tits off me though. I have no desire to ever see them live again if it's just more AFD +Nov Rain/YCBM/KOHD/LALD touring. I know plenty of people still do go to these shows, and for the life of me I can't fathom why. As Prince once said in lyrics: "heavy rotation never made my world go round / commercialisation of the music is what brought it down."
  8. I thought WOF (the song) was rubbish. Driving Rain was much better to me.
  9. I don't get the hate for this album. I think it's more about it not being a GNR album than anything else. It's tighter and stronger than both AL and WOF to me. The Great Pretender, My Antidote, The One You Loved Is Gone, Driving Rain, Mind Your Manners, Boulevard of Broken Hearts... all great tracks. WOF and AL are both too long, with a handful of strong tracks and a lot of b-side quality material. I prefer how concise LTD is by comparison and I think the quality is more consistent.

    Judas Priest

    Huge fan. Firepower was good, but a step down from Redeemer imo. I actually rate Nostradamus as one of the best things they've ever done. But then I've always liked Priest at their most experimental (Stained Class, Sad Wings Of Destiny, Sin After Sin etc).
  11. Doesn't make 2021 any more likely than 2001 or 2011 for the release of an album though.
  12. Don't see why 30 years is signficiant. Time (and wasting it) has never mattered to Axl.
  13. Seasons 1, 2, 4 and 7 were good-great Seasons 3, 5 and 6 were weak. Season 8 was visual assault punishable only by death.
