  1. I'm trying to look at this in a general perspective, not just from an American perspective. The American prison system seems to be something where conditions are bad and where people who have been in there often come out worse than how they came in. Which also solves very little.
  2. I'm not going to argue with "in prison". If you don't execute them that's a given. The problem is under what quality of living (how much luxury, do these often deranged or mentally limited people receive certain treatments?), under which conditions (is rehabilitation an option? are there possibility of parole or even release) and how much government/tax money should this be allowed to cost. These are difficult things imo. And of course these things are wildly different per country. But I've heard examples of a goverment spending more anually on the living conditions of a prisoner than that of
  3. I've never felt mankind in general has the right nor the wisdom to decide over life or death. At the same time there are certainly cases to be made, like ssiscool did earlier. From mass murderers to rapists to war criminals. I doubt, if they'd caught him at the time, many would have felt Josef Mengele should be allowed to live after the horrible crimes he commited. And if some pervert would put a hand on my daughter, my reaction would most likely be to kill him with my bare hands. But still... from a remote and objective perspective I'd say man shouldn't be able to decide over life or de
  4. This. By 2019 Axl sounded like a vietnamese girl in hypno therapy re-experiencing her severe war trauma's. And while we're at it, Slash's playing in reunion gnr often seems so disinterested that I'd call that a weak link too. Not nearly as bad as Axl "Cat stuck in a meatgrinder" Rose. But still. Fixed.
  5. This is an excelent point. When you've been around gnr online fandom long enough, there's nothing more satisfying than murdering fellow fans in cold blood. On top of that it's a fun crowd! Wish I could play more often than I do.
  6. Agreed. And yes, I could see them using 20yo vocal tracks too. But I just don't think I'd be interested in this band re-recording stuff from 20 years ago. Based on the village sessions there was real fire and ambition in it back then. They already seemed to have ruined that with all the re-writing, re-interpreting, re-recording and overproducing on Chinese Democracy. So I have zero faith they'd get it right now. What I might be interested in is an album of all new material that has been written since the reunion. A clean slate. But even then the heart and soul of this band seems so far gone I
  7. I basically only want more leaks from the period up until 2004. I stopped expecting anything from and caring about the band a long while back. If there's an album I'd check it out, but there won't be. Maybe an ridiculously overpriced UYI box at some point. And even if there was an album my expectations for it would be incredibly low. Axl sounds awful and itid probably just include worse versions of Village songs. The only thing I have less faith in than the band, is it's utterly incompetent management.
  8. Consider the excitement and the ambition from back then. We've really gone downhill.... A lot.... Two decades of misses and clusterfucks.
  9. I'm with you on the Dylan album, except for the "near". My lists for 2020: Regular albums: 8. Joe Bonamassa - Royal Tea 7. Pokey LaFarge - Rock Bottom Rhapsody 6. Paul McCartney - McCartney III 5. AC/DC - PWR/UP 4. Gregory Porter - All Rise 3. Pearl Jam - Gigaton 2. Bruce Springsteen - Letter To You 1. Bob Dylan - Rough And Rowdy Ways Archive / Live / Single: 8. Queen + Adam Lambert - Live Around The World 7. Bombino - Live In Amsterdam 6. The Teskey Brothers - Live At The Forum 5. Tom Petty - Wildflowers And All The Rest 4. Rolling Stones -
  10. This. Everything else is nice to have at best. I'd enjoy some pro-shot live footage from anywhere between 1986 and 2007, but the 1997-2004 recordings are the only thing I'd genuinely go apeshit over. And, in fact, the only thing I'd still be willing to spend money on. Technically not GnR stuff, but I'd really like to hear this as well. Love Izzy's solo work!
  11. Not sure how I feel about this. Could be great if they simply stick to the truth. It's crazy enough after all. Hope it won't cause another Jagger/Richards fight. I'm always for a new Stones album. Last week, just before the new lockdown here, I went to The Rolling Stones Unzipped. Which is basically the first (I think) staging of Exhibitionism on the European mainland. And it was absolutely amazing.
  12. The Rolling Stones Unzipped exposition has opened in my hometown, Groningen, in The Netherlands. First staging on the European mainland. I really need to go see it! It's in the same museum that also hosted David Bowie Is, and they did an amazing job there. So I'm really excited about this.
  13. Fucks sake, my dad's music collection is huge. He introduced me to tons of stuff. Beatles, Stones, Clapton, Cocker, Queen, Ry Cooder, Dire Straits/Knopfler, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison/Them, Crosby Stills Nash (& Young), Neil Young solo, Crowded House, Eagles, Cuby & The Blizzards, the Woodstock albums and loads of artists on it, tons of Dutch and/or local bands... A lot of blues classics too. Stuff like BB King, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters... I didn't like all of his stuff right a way. But I definitely came back to a lot of music he loves eventually. And he love
