  1. Foo Fighters are releasing their 10th studio album on Feb. 5. It was originally slated for 2020 to coincide with their 25th anniversary, but it was delayed due to the pandemic. Dave Grohl had this to say: “So, six or seven months went by, and I’m, like: ‘We make this music for people to hear. We don’t just make it so that we can go hit the road. We write these songs so people can enjoy them and sing along, whether it’s in their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing around, singing the choruses. So, I was, like, right now, more than ever, people
  2. Subject should read: Band with Slash's, Weiland's, and Trujillo's sons. The way it's written, it's like you're saying there is a one-man band featuring the son of all three bandmembers. When multiple people possess the same item, the apostrophe and S are used on the final name listed (as in the subject head above). When the possession is separate rather than joint, you use possessive form for all names mentioned. Example: John's and Mike's homes are completely furnished. John and Mike each own their own home. John and Mike's home is completely furnished. John and
  3. It's really hard to argue against "Paradise City." It's become a permanent fixture as the closer and for good reason. The way they incorporated the confetti and the fireworks, and just the way the song builds with a simple guitar strum, then launches into an driving riff, culminating into a cacophony of sound. And then, lyrically, it makes sense: "Oh won't you take me home." It's their go-home song. It's great. ALL that said, I tend to agree with others that "Nightrain" could also work. But it wouldn't be as good.
  4. If this was a normal band, I would take the "worked on record" statement to mean it's in the can or in post-production. But since this is GNR, it's probably a bunch of guitar riffs and melodies that Slash and Duff worked on that don't have any vocals and there is no record.
  5. Imagine if they released a photo like that with a four-second clip of something on Twitter. This forum would shut down due to server overload.
  6. For me, 2020 highlighted the fact that Guns N' Roses will under no circumstances release new music. They are content to be a touring juggernaut. If they can't find time to record an album during a worldwide pandemic, they never will. I'd bet almost anything there is not one completed studio track. It's pathetic.
  7. I think it could make a cool opener for them. Just launch right in. Of course this will literally never happen.
  8. Yeah, they sound-tested "Hard School" prior to their very last shows this year in Mexico (Axl too). Someone leaked a snippet of it. It actually seems like they were thinking about eventually, maybe, potentially, including it in the actual live set.
  9. Bruh. I have heard these boomers say countless times they don't want new music or they don't care about new music. It's one thing to just be all, "I'm stuck in 1987 forever." But it's another to actively say you hope they don't release new music as if it somehow erases their past work. These fans literally want to go hear "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" at every concert for the rest of their lives and relive that half decade of the '80s/early '90s for the rest of their time.
  10. Disagree with this assessment. It isn't dreadful. They just went for a contemporary record by design. Corgan wanted to make something synth pop. Which is cool. It's different. There's something that any Pumpkin fan can like on it, at least a song or two. I have to listen more for a true review. I like that he keeps trying to do new things. Next record is supposed to be a rock opera.
  11. Smashing Pumpkins recently released a double album. Yet another band that somehow has figured out how to release a record in today's environment. Pumpkins now have two releases since their reunion.
  12. Imagine that. GNR releasing new music a year after AFD as a way to satiate their fanbase. Then they turned around and released a double album only two years afterward. We're 12 years removed from Chinese Democracy, a record the official social media channels seem to completely ignore. At least, I guess, the band still plays CD songs live.
  13. Meegan has some photos and videos in her Instagram story, but the sound is off because she says it's top secret. Also has an emoji covering the monitors. I will assume this is GNR-related, though it probably is not. lol
  14. Meegan posted a couple photos/videos in her Instagram stories with Slash in studio, but sound was off 'cause she said it's top secret. I'm gonna go ahead and assume it's because it's GNR-related. But probably not.
  15. This is absolutely brilliant. Vintage Slash tone. I hope to hear this live sometime, at least in part. Slash is so great.
  16. Sorry, but I disagree. It's a guitars-driven rock and roll record with ballads. If the solos on "This I Love," and "There was a Time" don't sound like GNR to people, then I'm not sure what the heck to tell them.
  17. I can see Slash and the Conspirators dropping a new record whenever. Not even necessarily waiting to be able to tour it. I can also see Guns deciding to pretend they want to wait till 2022 to release a new album because of the new excuse: crowded 2021 release calendar.
  18. Speak for yourself, brah. I love Chinese Democracy and would put it as my third favorite GNR record behind Appetite and Use Your Illusion 2.
  19. Isn't it sad that we are forced to piece together Guns N' Roses information based on what other bands are doing? Like watching Alter Bridge, Conspirators future projects and announcements?
  20. You just depressed me by jogging my memory for what it was like in the spring and summer of 2016. GNR was everywhere. All over billboards in Chicago. Almost all of my friends and people I knew went to one of the Soldier Field shows. They band was definitely "back." I was like, FINALLY, MOTHERFUCKERS. I mean, to me, they never left. I had been attending GNR shows and Slash/Conspirators shows and so forth. But it was so rad to see people falling back in love with GNR. I get why there was no record in 2016. Get out and tour while the demand is sky high. By 2018, 2019, I was pretty wel
  21. Slash was in Elk Grove (suburb of Chicago) talking about Eddie Van Halen and the pinball machines (which are manufactured here locally). These machines look dope AF. Really hoping some of them end up in the bar arcades around town. Also, I want Slash's "fuck" mask. Where can I cop?
  22. I disagree. I think it's about time they act like a real and current band and highlight current members vs casting them in shadows. I am over the nostalgia tour. Give us new music with current lineup.
  23. Thanks for posting this. The way the question was phrased to Richard was pretty disrespectful. “Axl-only” GNR vs “proper” GNR. LIke, way to diminish his contributions. But then again, NITL GNR has pretty much relegated everyone but “the big three” to the background.
  24. There is no point. It’s garbage. And they let that dude Mojo treat it like another version of his terrible forum.
  25. I probably said this earlier, but it's not that fuckin' serious. Just release some new music. Clearly Duff and Slash still enjoy making new music. It doesn't have to be the greatest record ever. It doesn't even have to be the best record of 2020. Just show us you're still an actual band and not just a touring act content to only sing songs from 1987 and sell us toy trains.
