    Not necessarily... They have played OMG and silkworms live before and they're not album songs?

    OMG had an official release as part of a movie soundtrack, and I believe Silkworms was planned to be on the record at the time they were playing it live. If they play Hardschool live, it will only be because they want to release it officially. That won't ever happen tho but its cool to see they rehearsed it

  2. I mentioned this in the general musing thread but I'll mention it here too, I recently mixed the drum and bass track from the album version of Better onto the Bumblefoot's acoustic version that got leaked forever ago, and I think it ended up being my favorite version of the song. The drums and bass keep the song heavy, which sounds great with the acoustic guitars and the lack of overproduction. Not sure if I'm allowed to post it anywhere so I won't, but I'd definitely recommend trying it out yourself if you can

  3. One of my favorite ever performances from Axl. Such power behind his voice there, you can really feel the emotion through the way he sings. It's so good I don't even want a studio recording of that song, just a high quality version of that live performance.

  4. Yeah I don't really buy into the fact that COVID-19 prevented any sort of new music release from GNR. I actually understand not wanting to release new music during this worldwide crisis, but I truly believe that pandemic or no pandemic, no music was planned to be released this year at all. If they wanted to make 2020 their big year where they finally release a new album, we would have had at least some sort of info by the Super Bowl show they played. Before the shit hit the fan with the pandemic, we had the whole "no idea how to release music anymore" excuse and they probably would've kept using that one for a while. The pandemic is an easy excuse to switch over to because that's an actual legitimate reason, not this "How do we release music again?" bullshit we all saw right through. I do believe that Fernando is either expecting or at least hoping for new material from them, and is trying to be optimistic even if what he says never happens. I'm sure he's trying his best and I'm not blaming Fernando for what the band does/doesn't do, I just don't see new GNR material coming for a very long time, if ever.

    What the fuck is this?

    All this talk about what kind of clips Fernando was getting prepared for us, should’ve realized they wouldn’t even go that far. A playlist of studio tracks in the order of the set list is what we get. Great stuff


    This would be such a fun show to have the pro shot of. Really disappointing

    State of Grace clearly has scratch vocals, sounds like he misses a word or two as well. Perhaps that was the intent, but I doubt it having heard the Quick Song with vocals from those sessions.

    I’m in the camp that thinks SoG is just scratch vocals at the end, but it is weird comparing it to Quick Song’s scratch vocals because those are so clearly not words at all, while in this song it seems like  there’s an idea of what Axl wants to sing but just hasn’t really finalized writing them

  7. I’m not going to vote because I don’t really agree with either of those options. I love GNR, I love hearing their music and seeing their shows and all that stuff, I just really wish they’d do something aside from non-stop touring. I’ve been to 4 NITL shows and every time it’s still magical seeing Slash, Duff, and Axl share a stage. That was a reality no one thought possible and I’m still grateful that we got it. It’s just frustrating waiting for something to happen when clearly no one in the band cares about doing anything aside from tour and make as much money as possible. I guess thats the best way to describe how I feel about GNR in 2020, frustrating but I’m still a fan and I still gotta love them

    Frankly, I don't know anyone that would ever choose Motley Crue over Guns N' Roses. You'd be hard-pressed to find many casual fans that know any Motley Crue song.

    More hits than GNR? What country do you live in because that's 100 percent false in the U.S. Now, don't get me wrong. I am not looking at old '80s Billboard charts, but I can confidently state more people know Guns N' Roses' big hits and if you asked a random person on the street to name a Motley Crue song, they'd probably say, "Who the fuck is Motley Crue?" They were more famous in the 1990s due to Tommy Lee being associated with Pamela Anderson than anything about their music. 

    Maybe the perception has changed a little now with the Netflix doc.

    If Motley was on Guns' level, then they wouldn't have to lean on Def Leppard and Poison to sell out a comeback tour.

    I agree with all these points, my point was that with ticket prices the way they are these days, most casuals probably won’t go to more than 1 show this summer and, even tho GNR is a much bigger/better band, the appeal of a Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett show is probably going to be more appealing than the 4th year of the same GNR show. At least from my personal experience, but I actually don’t know a single other hardcore GNR fan in real life

    Stones are announcing dates on Thursday.  This reminds me, the concert landscape this year in the US seems so over-saturated with the Stones, Guns, Crue/Lep/Poison, Pearl Jam Spring and fall shows, Rage Reunion.....etc

    For real. I don’t know any casual rock music fans that would choose GNR over Motley Crue and Def Leppard especially with the recent Netflix movie. Very crowded market for GNR to try and make a return to stadiums

  10. Fortunately I don’t think the tour name is actually “Larger than Life”. Seems like it’s just a headline describing how they expect the tour to be. From what I can see on the GNR website the tour is just gonna be called the 2020 stadium tour. Doesn’t come near me anyway so it’s not a hard decision for me to skip this tour unless they actually bring some new music to the table.

    Someone sent me the Instagram clip. Sounded like The Seeker to me. And no, I'm not kidding. I wish I was. 

    I only listened with my phone speaker held up to my ear so I couldn’t hear clearly, but that was exactly my first impression as well just based on the drums. Tried to hear you’re crazy and couldn’t. Will listen with headphones in a bit

    Had anyone noticed this post from the official superbowl music fest instagram.

    Hmmm "Were here for it"?


    Could it be happening? I’ll be very pissed at Bud Light if they’re getting my hopes up for no reason lol

    edit: I looked at the date and that’s a pretty old post. Probably doesn’t mean anything
