  1. Anyone listen to the vinyl mix and can compare it to the original record? How does it compare? What are your thoughts on the mix of the UYI tracks, and the Appetite tracks to the L&L remaster?
  2. I posted this in the general musings thread earlier, but I'm glad Lars isn't bitter about it. I know that in the Inside the music about Metallica, all the guys started shitting on Axl and GN'R really badly for the Montreal riot. I'm not sure how true the claims are about the sound system being messed up, and not being set up correctly/Axl may have been sick or something like that IIRC. Either way, a cool time in music, how often could you see Body Count, Metallica, and Guns in a single show? The UYI was such a massive event, I'd love to write a book about it
  3. Sony used some smart strategies, specifically selecting DVD and Blu Ray as the format for their consoles, and pretty much have a lead in console sales because of their IPs. It's all good for me as a PC fan, competition has meant that microsoft is spreading the Xbox platform to PC gaming and now I can play Master chief collection on my gaming rig 😎
  4. Hey guys, does anyone have Among Us? Or similarly play the game Mafia? Over on the GN'R discord a few of us have Among Us and it'd be cool to play with some more people! If you haven't checked it out, it's 5 bucks on Steam, super fun game of deception. If anyone remembers the game Mafia as a kid, or played it at a party, we play on the GN'R discord--The War Room. Would love to have more people from the forum join and play. A lot of us play other games as well!
  5. It sounds more like getting band members a "try out" or demo, or working out the song and arrangements together. They did the same thing with KOHD. Interesting because of the vocal work, but we've seen how every member of the band played their versions of the songs--only difference is Axls vocals after all these years. Otherwise, just meh
  6. I'd prefer a proper version of Estranged from the Chicago or Oklahoma show. Much better than Tokyo
  7. Due to the bands quite terrible/very small live collection, some of the Live Era tracks are incredibly precious--such as You're Crazy from the '88 Tokyo show, Dust N' Bones from the Ritz '91 show, Out Ta Get Me from the Marquee show '87, Paradise City from Las Vegas. It's just a damn shame that the vocals are rerecorded. There are Soo many great performances they could've just picked other ones, but they didn't I honestly think an official GN'R record from the UYI era, no overdubs, would be incredible. Opening with Perfect Crime and Right Next Door to hell, Brownstone, bad Obsessio
  8. Does anyone what went into the mixing of the UYI albums, I mean between the demos--which a lot of the performances sound the same (see the Garden demo/instrumental)-- to the final mix? I went through and listened to a couple demos on a car ride recently and it seems like the grit and rawness of the performances, a lot of the heaviness, was taken out by Bill Price. Matt's drums sound noticable worse. The rhythm guitar sections are too quiet, even Slash's, and everything doesn't have the forward, in your face sound that TSI has; weren't all three records recorded at the same time? Just seem
  9. If they had performed, it would've made the Paris '92 show the most precious and important proshot we would have as a fanbase
  10. That show would require a complete remix of the audio, they have the soundboard of the show (with Live Era being evidence), so if we got a proper sounding release of the show, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. It just wouldn't excite me that much, like 40 shows off the top of my head I'd rather see in good quality The only possible thing that could excite me from this, is the possibility of the remastered UYI tracks. If they were smart, they would tease the remasters early. Otherwise it's probably just the standard vinyl versions of previously released tracks. Sad face. I'm so bo
  11. The lyrics to You Could Be Mine are in Appetite for Destruction, at the end of the LP gatefold. Matt more than likely played a slightly altered version of the drum track Steven had already laid out
  12. Does anyone know some major metal stars, besides Rob Halford, coming out?
