  1. It's not an indication of a bad relationship or animosity just because they don't have their arms around each other all the time, they are not wild 20+ year olds running around the stage with their tops off sweating and headbanging either. They are generally more sober, chilled out and reserved in their behaviour now altogether, because they're much older. It's just a natural consequence of growing up. "These shows are rubbish because Axl wasn't touching Slash enough" is just... Come on.
  2. I thought Pitman was fired because Duff didn't like him or something. Axl told millions of people on live TV that Pitman would be fired next anyway, so he can't say he didn't know it was coming
  3. In theory I should like them, as I'm into brief, fast rockers. But something about the UYI mastered sound doesn't sit right with me. If they were rough like the first side of Lies I'd probably prefer that!
  4. Actually, having said it's just filler.. I think there are a couple of Mates rehearsal studio instrumentals of the song from around 1990, and it sounds fuckin nice there. It's the polished UYI version with the vocals I don't really like. The raw bones of the song are good though.
  5. The final guitar melody is really uplifting The harmonised vocals of Fergie on the run up to the chorus are amazing, the chorus is powerful as fuck I really dig good female vox over hard rock
  6. I'm glad you included Beautiful Dangerous, it might be my favourite post-GnR song and I don't care what anyone thinks, lol
  7. I don't know why they made a video really. Was it ever even played live? It's kinda ok but just filler really, nothing special.
  8. It's remarkable how so many people here know exactly what's going on with the GnR members, whether music will be released, their daily activities and so on I for one am glad we have so many insider experts on board
  9. Or did AC/DC save Axl Either way The Sun is about as bad a source as the National Enquirer tbh
  10. Last time I guess it was just a case of, "new SMKC album slated" full stop
  11. Oh wait I just remembered the funniest one - it's from 87 or 88, camera view from side of station - Axl screams " Do you know where you are? Good, then go home" 😄 Then immediately reverts to his normal voice and days "IM JOKING!!" Almost as if wary of crowd trouble haha
  12. I seem to recall one of them saying they wanted YCBM on AFD, but held it back to put another song on it.
  13. The UYI tour one with a long winded Axl rant followed by the band fucking up the intro and having to fudge a restart, with the blame attributed to Slash being wasted on most videos of it, even though if you listen closely it's Sorum's fault for starting the drum intro half a beat late, which causes Slash to turn around with a panicked WTF look, before they get the rhythm correct on the second go That one
  14. Great work cheers Do you guys have a transcription of a release that came out called Appetite For Conversation? I had a cassette of it years ago, it was an interviewer talking to Slash and Duff, pretty bad audio but funny conversation during the AfD tour I think. ?
  15. I'm pretty sure the Axl timing issues are to do with audio delay on the huge PA. Anyway at least he doesn't have the old timing issues of singing all the songs 5 hours late
  16. In that sense, Anything Goes, Back Off Bitch and a few others are also covers..
  17. Good point. It's quite an easy song for multiple guitarists to play on too, as evidenced by that TV clip where there are like 10 famous leads all playing it together.
  18. Anyway if this thread isn't to your taste you can always go n hang out in the one asking for a video of Robin Finck falling over, I've heard that's a hot subject right now
  19. If you like this thread, you'll love the YouTube video "Axl Rose asks for some Reggae 8 hours 34 seconds" (Yes someone has actually made and uploaded that)
  20. Has anyone else ever noticed, that the instrumental piece the band used to go into after Axl would call "Gimme some reggae!" on KOHD isn't really reggae at all? Reggae is generally pretty slow, with that signature off beat guitar chord chugging along. What the band actually plays in that bit of KOHD sounds more like Calypso style, double the pace of reggae and with the bongos going wild etc. What do you reckon?
  21. November Rain is definitely well over rated, imo. It did have the potential to be a good song, but missed the mark for the following reasons: 1. I don't think Axl's raspy voice suits the intro. The softer voice as used in Patience would have been much better. 2. It doesn't have a memorable chorus, which is the key to a catchy song. 3. It's too long 4. It's a bit overly saccharine, schmaltzy even. 5. The Slash 'solo' at the end isn't really a solo, it's just a 4 bar riff repeated over and over. A true solo is a longer passage without such repetition. 6. Th
  22. Arguably it breaks up the monotony of a song which goes on for too long really But yeah I don't give af either way tbh
  23. What's so bad about the telephone call on KOHD? It doesn't add or subtract from the song for me. It's just a thing that's there. I can't see why anyone would be like omg that's do terrible. ?
  24. Well, for GnR it's actually 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993, 2008. Even if some of that was re-release and covers.
