  1. Each to their own. I have it in a playlist with HS & Absurd and for my taste they are far better songs. Fundamentally they have Axl singing and his phrasing, lyrics and vocal variety elevates things immensely. I wouldn’t put the two projects in the same leagues personally.
  2. I’m a subscriber at the highest price point and am really enjoying it. I’m more than happy to support the project. The quality thus far is superb.
  3. Why would people pay £1.29? Adults have Spotify, tidal etc… or you can just press on the YouTube link the band themselves shared. If you’re a fan like me you’ll no doubt buy the cd, hat & t-shirt.
  4. Rock singles have never done well in the charts. The stats on GN’R singles in 1990’s don’t paint a picture of how successful they were. The charts will always be filled with what the youth are listening to, now more than ever given the way they can stream. This forum really is the pits at the minute. My favourite band are on tour, releasing music and seemingly enjoying it..this swamp of negativity on here is depressing.
  5. Is the distance between the audience/pit and the stage larger on this tour?
  6. AC/DC release specific merch around singles. Do you think we’ll just get random singles rather than an album?
  7. We’re getting Chinese part 2…to me that’s very very exciting! a formulaic reunion album was never on the cards unless Axl compromised. I’m pleased he hasn’t. Slash has his output with Myles & Duff has lots of things he does on the side. I feel excited about this band again.
  8. Completely disagree. I think the production is superb. I’ve listened on headphones & through hifi.
  9. Can’t believe what I’ve woken up to. I think it sounds great on headphones. loads going on like Chinese but with slash at the forefront. do we know if it’s all the current line up? Brilliant day.
  10. Exactly. Promoters are obviously of the opinion that with over a year of no shows the fact there is a “show” is enough to market this on. With the cancellation of the Def Leppard/Motley tour it probably isn’t a bad shout. Given the fact the European tour is guaranteed to sell well, if an album release is going to be tied specifically to a tour..that might not be needed for quite some time. Slash releasing a conspirators album early 2022 might not be a good sign either.
  11. Many of the songs we love from the past weren’t written like that. I’ll be holding judgement until I hear what we have coming and we hear studio versions.
  12. Yeah..I’ve always thought this. For me the 91/2 versions of sweet child for example have far too much rasp.
  13. Duff did “got me under pressure” cover with Loaded. Be great for his solo slot -
  14. You say that but he actually sounded great on the No Trickery vegas shows in 2014.
  15. He’s on tour with his own band. Played last weekend and sounded great.
  16. What’s the appetite for gigs like in US? If they reorganised the tour so it ran August into September at the venues/city’s currently booked in order to 100 % confirm gigs are on would tickets be snapped up? They definitely would in the UK. The desire for live music is huge here.
  17. So has Chinese had a resurgence since the Not in This Lifetime era? How do those Chi Dem stream numbers compare with Velvet Revolver songs?
  18. I think you’ve misunderstood my post. I’m delighted to see Slash back with Axl. The fact (in my opinion) I saw good chemistry between Axl & DJ isn’t something you can call nonsense. It’s my opinion.
  19. The Caesars palace shows were great as the venue was awesome. Good opportunity to get up close and personal but on a grand scale. Very different to a stadium gig. That second show Jason Momoa was sat in front of me then went side stage. Axl wasn’t the best I’ve heard him but I remember certain songs like Dead Horse sounding amazing. It’s on YouTube The guy is getting older and the voice ages. When you’re at a gig and it’s extremely loud and mixed for the venue it’s inevitably gonna sound more enjoyable anyway. Here is a fan recording of same performance. To me Axl sounds better in the mix -
  20. Let’s be honest “management” are not the ones not getting involved. It’s Axl. For better or worse he’s not a fan of releasing things we’d love to see.
