  1. You couldn't be more right. It was SO new that it did stand out. Similar to how that opening to Better was received before Axl kicks in with that amazing first verse. I love that thin line between where it sounds like it could go off the rails and where it neatly falls into the comfort zone of amazing hard rock.
  2. I like it a lot. The doubled over vocals with the chorus makes it hard to sing along to but very catchy. And when they did those 20 second teaser clips leading up to the Chinese release, the one where they used the intro to Scraped and ended with "dont you try to stop us now" was the best of the bunch.
  3. Gotta also keep in mind that one was slightly damaged even though the seller listed it as in excellent condition.
  4. Not holding you to anything but percentage wise how big of an issue is that dent. Do you think that is worth 10% less than a mint poster or are we being too generous with that? If you cant wager a guess as to what it does to the value then god help the rest of us.
  5. Do we think the guy on the facebook page would do better selling it on there rather than another ebay auction?
  6. When I have it in my possession I will get a picture up here. Building suspense........
  7. Another fantastic episode. Thanks for taking the effort and time to put these together. If there were any 2nd thoughts at all on my end about a fairly large litho purchase that I recently made, this Podcast put me at complete ease. It's so great to hear the appreciation for these pieces.
  8. I was then lol, then Kobe was listed and just like that I wasn't. PM me back if you can, I would like to talk more about it through the messenger.
  9. Alright its over now Who was I bidding against at the end there? Was it someone here?
  10. What type of GNR items have you seen up for grabs at auction houses?
  11. Jesus you have a good memory lol. When I tried bidding on Kobe the other day my username was blocked by the seller , I remembered after the fact that we had had words previously lol. Had to use my wife's username to start bidding. I guess in retrospect the $2000 would have been a gift.
  12. I'm fairly surprised that it's getting bid up like this with this many days left in the auction. I would have thought it would have come down to the last hour or so.
  13. Your second line sounds right, but I've never been sold on that first line. "Shine like more than a bomb you are"? What does that even mean? It seems clunky and weird.
  14. Does anyone have any newer guesses as to the lyrics in the chorus? Even as it stands now the song is an all time favorite of mine and everyone I've ever played it for has instantly realized its potential as something special.
  15. Man I love hearing these. Excellent scoop you got out of Arian about the Tokyo litho and who requested it! Makes me love it that much more. Stop putting yourself down and calling it torturous to listen to. I find the time just breezes by. And having your friend on to relive his experience was great. Having somone who attended a show from each leg is an excellent addition.
  16. They're in the stairwell leading to the basement. When I rented an apartment my girlfriend was okay with a few on display. She tolerated the bachelor pad aesthetic. When the girlfriend upgraded to the wife and the apartment upgraded to a house she hasn't been so kind to the lithos. This was the only compromise other than my garage, and I was worried that the heat might effect them out there. I'd agree it's not the most prominent place but they're up and in a spot I walk past a few times a week so it's better than nothing.
  17. @Mcs953 Glad you like them, as someone who has had them stored in the closet for a long time, I'm getting to fall in love with them all over again. @janrichmond Thanks man! I'm just opening and closing the door for fun now. I was inspired by the Lithorati podcasts to actually find a spot and do the right thing so they could be fully appreciated. Wish I had more room to hang the rest, but it was fun deciding which ones made the cut.
  18. https://imgur.com/gallery/oDd1YsA Hope that works. Thanks for the tip.
  19. Finally found some space in the new house to hang up a few of my favorites. The wife would only compromise for the stairwell leading to the basement but I'm pretty happy with it. Thought I figured out how to post the pic but apparently not, anyone able to explain it to me? https://picresize.com/popup.html?images/rsz_20200315_134544.jpg
  20. If you had to make an educated guess as to how many GNR litho collectors are out there [let's call it 20 or more in their collection], how many people do you think there are?
  21. Definitely still interested. Cant get enough of these. Hope you guys are planning on doing one show for every leg. These are so fun to look back on. Getting a new appreciation for some that I've overlooked in the past.
  22. I love how much talk there was about having to see some in person to fully appreciate. NJ night 1, Arizona, and Pittsburgh are three of my all time favorites and it's all because of the close up details. Even my Cincinnati was kicked up a notch when I was able to get up super close and see these vibrant blues and yellows that I didnt know existed. I cant wait to hear part 2. If you are taking suggestions for the awards you alluded too: Best theme, best hidden item [like the NJ state outline in the NJ Devil print], best color scheme, most underrated, most overrated etc. etc. And
