  1. Yes, that's why I asked what's the point, cause I don't get it.
  2. Well it didn't sound like the studio version and if you indeed have two intact ears, you know that. I'm not saying that it didn't sound good. I was just saying that he was really pushing his vocal capabilities to it's limits back then. So much that he couldn't even sing some of the songs when he was at his peak the way they were written. So if these songs were pushing his limits back then, it shouldn't be surprising that he has trouble with them now that he's soon 60-years old. Well what can you do? The reality is that this forum's not gonna be anything but bitching and whining if ever
  3. He couldn't! And by properly I mean like the studio version. The studio version goes: "Yooooouuuuuuuuuooouuuuu coooooould bee mine" The live version has always been: "You cooould be mine". Axl's said it himself. He wrote YCBM without even thinking how he can pull it off live. I mean the live version is fine, but singing the song the way it's on the album is pretty much impossible. I wouldn't say that Axl's current voice has nothing to do with his classic voice. Usually when casual fans describe Axl's voice they just say that it's high pitched. They don't talk about rasp. But sure,
  4. It's not only my reality. It's kinda the reality that we all live in. It's no secret that Axl's written songs that he's not even capable of singing himself properly. He's admitted it himself! He couldn't sing songs like Coma and You Could Be Mine properly even in his peak, because he made those songs impossible to sing. He never even tried singing Don't Damn Me live, cause it can't be done properly. It's a fact that GNR songs in general have a lot more melodic variation compared to AC/DC songs. AC/DC songs have a lot more short bursts of screaming which fit Axl's voice perfectly. When Axl wrot
  5. Dude, Axl struggled with the ending of Coma even in his peak. A tiny bit of realism wouldn't hurt. Comparing AC/DC songs which are like tailormade for Axl's voice to one of the most difficult songs on the GNR setlist is kinda pointless.
  6. Wow, that was one beautiful Coma! I wish they had picked Better from Houston cause that was really the best version of Better from NITL tour.
  7. When it comes to intros, I really love the beginning of You Could Be Mine. Couldn't be any more badass.
  8. We never referred to these leaked songs as The General, Blood In The Water or Down By The Ocean. Like others have said The General didn't leak. It's not Atlas Shrugged. Blood In The Water isn't a working title either. It's a remix of Prostitute. It was supposed to be on the remix album. If you want to hear Blood In The Water, just search for it cause it has leaked too. Pretty much the whole remix album leaked at one point. And Down By Ocean hasn't leaked either. It's not a working title to any of these leaked songs.
  9. But when you look at facts, people listen to Queen more than they listen to GNR. Queen is currently the 40. most listened to artist in the world according to Spotify. GNR is the 160. most listened. November Rain is easily the most viewed GNR song on youtube. Nobody can predict the future, but I just don't see any evidence that would support the idea that danceable music would endure better than "deep" music. There's many reason why rock music "died", so I'm not gonna go into all that. When you're trying to write a hit song, there's no doubt that writing something catchy and danceable is t
  10. Not sure what your point here is. November Rain and Queens music has stood the test of time just like the music of Appetite has. J. S. Bach's or Beethovens music isn't exactly danceable, but people still love it after all these years. That shit has proven to last forever. I agree that AFD is the most danceable GNR album and it's because of Izzy, but I don't think that danceable music endures any better than "deep" music does.
  11. Much prefer Kurt Cobains voice. That being said, I might actually listen to Post Malone, if he did this type of music.
  12. Gotta love Susan, even if this isn't exactly news. We've known that they're working on music. It's just a question of when it'll be released.
  13. Yeah, Axl doesn't seem to have anything against Buckehead either. He promised to share his Dr. Pepper with Buckethead when CD was coming out. GNR credited Chris Weber back in the day too. I see no reason why Robin and Buckethead wouldn't be credited on the next album. What we've heard of the current bands version of Hard School, doesn't sound drastically different from the old. The people who originally wrote the songs should definitely be credited.
  14. Well he's no worse than all those Axl impersonators. I feel like Kurt Cobain always tried to sound like he was sodomized with a cactus, so he might actually have been impressed if he saw this. Someone actually succeeded in sounding as terrible as he was trying to sound like. I'm saying this as a big Kurt Cobain fan by the way.
