  1. Too much like common sense for the fanboys. He's solely written a small handful of great songs and been an important contributor to the more collaborative works in the GNR canon. but it feels like more of a fluke kind of talent. He may stumble upon an inspired moment every now and then, but he just isn't able to function as a prolific artist on any level whatsoever. And in terms of singing, he hasn't really been talented in that department in at least ten years now. We're all hoping for a turn around, but actions speak louder than words.
  2. Just sucks for those of us who can't stand AC/DC's music.
  3. The majority of artists and bands play multiple dates in the UK on any given tour, including GNR before NITL.
  4. I've spent money on them in the past, back when Axl could still sing. And then I spent money on them again when he could kind of half-sing. Now he can't sing at all, I'll be damned if I'm gonna spend my hard earned money on a guy who's just embarrassing himself and disrespecting his fanbase on a regular basis.
  5. That's why Prince played a 21 date residency in London at the o2 is it? Or why Michael Jackson announced 50 dates at the London o2 in 2009 for one of the most anticipated live comebacks of all time? Yeah, cuz nobody gives a shit about the UK.
  6. Goody for you. If you wanna chuck money at a corporate sellout cashgrab reunion by a band who don't give a shit about how they sound then that's up to you. I'm sure you delude yourself on a regular basis that the thousands you've spent is all worthwhile. I'd rather spend my money on bands/artists who actually give enough of a shit to practise and sound half decent.
  7. I seriously contemplated travelling from the UK to Vegas to see the opening night in 2016. Fast forward to 2020, when they announced London dates in my home country I didn't even consider buying a ticket.
  8. My nan passed away listening to Thrasher by Neil Young. I honestly couldn't think of a better way to go.
  9. So did Axl send in the heavies on that GNR forum that should not be named?

  10. The thing is, fans moan about the lack of communication, but have you ever considered the reason we don't get any news or updates from the GNR camp is because there's nothing to tell. In other words, they've done nothing as a band outside of the live shows. No recording done with this lineup other than reworking of SOYL. Would any of you really be surprised if that turned out to be the case? I know I wouldn't. I always hope I'm wrong, but occams razor suggests I'm not.
  11. GNR haven't done shit in over a decade. Doesn't take an "insider" to tell me that.
  12. Wow, bold statement. I could perhaps agree that as a package deal, UYI1 and UYI2 could give AFD a run for its money, but I don't think either individual album matches up.
  13. Definitely agree with this. Was just having a bit of fun. It irks me when people say GNR are a one album band, when UYI has more quality spread across it than most bands could hope for in their entire catalogue.
  14. I've never been adverse to a bit of saccharine. You're talking to a guy who sees the merits of MJ's Heal The World.
  15. Ha, I didn't wanna omit Estranged, but NR and Estranged on one album would just be overkill. And NR is the better of the two.
  16. Think you missed the point of my thread. I prefer what we got too, I was just merely asking if a single disc UYI would've been as good as AFD...
  17. The covers always bothered me. I never listen to them and they're piss breaks during the concerts (especially the tedious KOHD). It just felt really lazy song choices to use. It's like Axl thought "we need some stadium sing-along tracks, lets do KOHD and LALD".
  18. Nah, it's just a bit of hypothetical fun. I absolutely would want the rest of the tracks, either as b-sides or an album of outtakes. It's just a question of whether the material they had was strong enough to compete as a single album next to Appetite. I think it was.
  19. To be honest, I think it would've surpassed it. No tacky cover versions or b-grade material like Back Off Bitch or Garden of Eden. Just straight up killer rocknroll. I had to omit Estranged as you can't have four 8+min epics on one album. 1. Right Next Door To Hell 2. Dust N Bones 3. Civil War 4. Bad Obsession 5. Don't Cry 6. Locomotive 7. Breakdown 8. Double Talkin Jive 9. November Rain 10. The Garden 11. You Could Be Mine 12. Bad Apples 13. Coma
  20. Ron's work on Shacklers Revenge was one of my favourite moments on the record. The solo, the tapping. I honestly don't think Buckethead could've done better.
  21. Much like his Twitter followers, I wouldn't be surprised if half of these claims are fake. He's like a real life Saul Goodman. A real fake-it-till-you-make-it type.
