  1. No. Just absolutely NO. The band did all the damage to itself. If you want to be more specific Axl Rose and his dim wit management. Covid is a convenient excuse, but they will never mention how they ripped the arse off the touring side of their business. It's all going to be "we really wanted to this that it the other but...covid". Don't even entertain this argument. In 2017 had covid hit, we could have this conversation. Gnr spent all their time and effort on touring and now they are sitting on loads of cash but they've spent all their good will, and they've lost a lot of respect
  2. Are you revoking my membership and GNR truck? Over my dead body!!!😄 Don't damn me is a great song! I just mentioned it as I've seen a few throw shade at it!
  3. Remove coma and get in the ring and you have a more to the point album. Anyway, I'm not talking about removing the song from history, I'm just stating that in my opinion it's a filler track😅 I know that not every song I dislike can be deemed filler in everyones eyes... but for me, and a lot of people I know Coma is an absolute snore. For me it has one moment of good / interesting music and that's the following part No one's going to bother me anymore No one's going to mess with my head no more I can't understand what all the fightin's for But it's so nice here, down off the sho
  4. For me yes. It just doesn't really go anywhere, and the main riff that it's built on is poor. Know among the die hards it's counted as one of the peak songs but it does nothing for me... I nearly put another fan favourite down too, but I in the interests of safety for me and the weak hearted MYGNR members I chose not to😄
  5. Both UYI and CD had filler moments, don't even need to name them but Rhiad, Scraped, Catcher, Right next door to hell, Coma, Shotguns blues all come to mind. Neither album is perfect, UYI is much more accessible, but that doesn't make it better or worse for me! I love CD, but I hope that the next record GNR release is a bit more stylistically consistent. Pick a direction and go for it! the experimental middle album is done, time to do the back to basics with a dash of the 'best of what we've learned from the past 30yrs'. But who knows anymore with these jokers.
  6. One meal, means that they only had one sound / style. I completely disagree, especially when you look at GNR up to CD. Even Appetite has a couple of variations of 'meal' SCOM is pure chill classic rock Creedence, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Out ta get me is pure early AC/DC. Then you have songs like Estranged, The Garden, November rain... then you have songs like Shacklers revenge, If The world, prostitute... It's a comment from a guy that really doesn't know the band that well (beyond the singles). If you judged Tool based on the their singles, or even some of their albums on the surface, you could
  7. This part in particular. SOD is one of my favourites... but I hope they don't bring it back because they will ruin in it with crap performances, I'm happy to have seen it three times with a capable band and singer.
  8. He said he did more, and that in the later copies of the album he has more credits. I think the Better riff is the only one I've specifically heard him reference though so I assume that's the only major one. Not exactly the greatest riff, but it served its purpose!
  9. No the SMKC weigh in on the main topic of the thread. Mygnr needs to hear what I have to say on the matter 😄
  10. I know Matt has his history with GNR and talks with Slash/Duff... but he's an egomaniac! and Slash and Duff know that full well. They are not confiding in Matt about not being happy in GNR 2016-present. He is not clued about GNR at all, backed up with how he found out about the reunion the same day we did. Matts pissed to this day that he didn't get asked for a spot in the NITL band, he proved how pissy he is by unfollowing Slash and Duff after the announcement. He put bullshit claims in his book A) because he was pissed B) because he needed something juicy to get some headlines... unfort
  11. Hemispheres is a different kettle of fish because Rush treated their fans great, and the fans are diehard. Hemispheres isn't the most popular Rush record but it was definitely received better by the fans. I get what you're saying I just don't see the market being big enough to allow for it. I would spend 3-500 on a boxset with the complete recordings of the cd era happily, but I know nobody else that would even consider it... outside of this forum😄 Also, I would hope they do some further research on the numbers too... 🤣
  12. 10k initially? Maybe 1-2k max!! I LOVE CD! but I'm also a realist! While it has its fans, there is no way there's that much of a market. It's incredibly niche and not worth the cost involved. I would love to hear all that stuff, but the majority of ghr fans are the people gnr management focus on, not the 1-2000 people that might go out and buy a deluxe extended Chinese democracy boxset. Big gambal for them. AFD and UYI were widely accepted records, and include the bands most famous songs that's why they get such grand treatment CD is beloved by some but the majority have decided it's no
  13. since 2011 it's been mostly a shit show, with the odd exception. NITL was a complete anti-climax. Am I going to let go of being a fan of the band? no... but where the rank in importance in 2020 is remarkably different to where it was 10 years ago, I enjoy the records they released up to 2008... but I can barely get through those shit selects, I don't really enjoy listening to the current band... I'm open to having my mind changed so I check out whatever happens but it really isn't looking likely that I'll ever be as into GNR as I was... It's like the 'watching how the sausage is made' thing. K
  14. It's pretty funny the different opinions. For me, I didn't love the song WOF when I heard it first, but it grew on me over time... it is pretty dumb😄 The driving rain song just didn't have a great riff, and for a Slash song the riff has to be there... kinda reminded me of that same feeling I got when herd 'Come on, come in' just blah!! I'm going to give it another shot though, sometimes a good breather makes all the difference... plus seeing as Slash is the closest to GNR music that I'll get I may as well get on-board. I Still listening to most of WOF regularly.
