  1. I want like 10 or 20 pages of interpretive, psychedelic art inspired by the solo... as literal a translation of the song into book form as possible. This won't be Slash's first rodeo.
  2. I think Fernando is like Axl’s surrogate son. Axl wants to break the cycle of bad dads and so he sticks every tone-deaf misfire on the fridge — keeps it positive.
  3. ♫ Liberia, girrrrrrl.... you came and you changed my world... ... two douches tradin' tweets... and Steven says don't lecture me... and Axl says incredulously... that flag is Liberian, girl.
  4. have ta give all the people n' fans content 2 satisfy 'em in these tuff times
  5. From that VR documentary it seemed pretty clear Matt was one of the ones pulling for Scott the most. He wanted someone with star power and was really uninspired by the all no-name tapes and auditions. ♫
  6. all the red flags only solidify its authenticity we got p huge and Riggs all over this thing, leaks on a subreddit, slash pick as proof, Fernando says it’s fake this is GNR as f
  7. that print-out is kind of lazy and half-assed; doesn't really make sense, if Fernando said its fake he'd be a liar... I'm pretty sure it's actually legit.
  8. Check this out! He's such a cool dude -- great player. Honestly him and Fortus could have made for a cool band... three guitarists is lol. You would think a guy like Axl could just sit with him, Fink with his acoustic like in that video, and they could hash out some stuff! Too bad they couldn't get out of their own way. Like Axl could have sang some menacing shit over this exact riff... boom we got one song down: Clean riff a minute later... an intro for song two. CD2 starts now!!!!!!
  9. The idea that the NITL 3-union allowed them to keep AFD5 in the chamber only works if Axl's voice isn't completely shot. Is it going to move back towards the 2016 highlights or toward the Iceland soundboard? Even Izzy can't do shit in the House of Mouse.
  10. I'm not saying it would have sold more tickets. I'm saying for the band legacy, for the quality of the recordings and shows for future posterity and releases, for capitalizing on what is critically and historically acknowledged as a far superior musical outfit which has barely any material available to view from their heyday, which made that album that you say is the only one people care about -- 2016 seems like it was the last time to do it. It would have been worth the cost to Axl Slash and Duff to eat that higher costs for one leg of a tour. The idea that it was risky and could h
  11. 2016 shoulda been AFD5, no substitutes. The voice was there, the money was there, the demand was there. This interminable NITL version with the "Big Three" coulda started w/ the second leg. Bah.
  12. I think there was an issue with withholding of payments etc., having to constantly fight for what he was owed, which probably lead Izzy to want out as well.
  13. I think Myles is really well-versed in theory, which may be more what they were alluding to.
  14. Rock or Bust was a pretty rad AC/DC album in a lot of ways. Gives me hope that a 60 year old Axl isn’t an instant deal-breaker.... Yeah... Contraband showed how to capitalize on the real pent up “GNR” demand. The build up and success that summer of that album, in retrospect... I mean the business was already in heavy decline and yet... massive pre-release buzz, late night circuit, kids in my school who weren’t rock people were talking about it, three videos in rotation, huge radio play, Grammy win. CD was like a note being slipped under the door, in comparison.
  15. Yeah for sure there was no alternate timeline where Axl wasn't gonna do what ended up being the CD route. I'm sure '95 felt like the world was limitless with opportunity to branch out. Although Slash did say Axl came around eventually on at least some of the songs but it was too late.
  16. Was there much talk about Snakepit? Honestly looking at how GNR has turned out in 2020... if Axl had just sung on those fucking songs... it would have been SO GOOD. If I close my eyes I can hear Axl on Doin' Fine... and I'm rock... hard. Dime Store Rock was made for snake-dancing.
  17. we gotta band together and do a pilgrimage to Izzy’s avocado farm. we need resolution
  18. the happy birthdays are the key to all of this
  19. I dunno if people should throw Duff to the wolves, haha. I still figure it's pretty simple: Izzy wanted an equal business slice, Axl (and Slash and Duff to whatever degree, who knows) think that is insane and unfair, Izzy wasn't interested in being a hired hand and once Team Brazil gets out the excel spreadsheets and stuff he immediately starts tuning out, Duff thinks that sucks and was probably sick of him being difficult... here we are. Moneyyyyy. Granted I think GNR without Izzy is a shadow of its true self and think Izzy deserves equality and then some... I don't thi
  20. Why would you say they didn't want Matt or Steven? If Axl said it's a non-starter, NITL is going to reflect the business partnership that currently exists and I'm going to hire the vacant positions aka keep my guys... that just means Slash and Duff didn't think it was worth scuttling the whole prospect over. Doesn't mean they like Frank much or wouldn't prefer to choose their own guy in a best case scenario. Good bands aren't just plug and play individual components. I bet they cared a lot! Not surprised Duff wasn't going to issue a Matt ultimatum, though. I mean think about ho
  21. Should track down the 5.1 from the AFD Super Deluxe if you haven’t.... I bet it’s better than whatever the Q-sound thing ended up being. Hopefully UYI gets a similar anniversary treatment.
  22. she's a 1989 Chrysler Lebaron... the previous owner was Axel Rosé
  23. How could you take BH's Nightrain solo over the monstrous original outro? feel like I'm takin crazy pills matter of fact how could you take any solo over that outro.... I'll fight you... hold me back!!
