  1. You guys serious? Noah Weiland is tremendous! He’s channeling his fathers spirit. He not only sounds like Scott but he naturally & effortlessly inherited his vibe! It’s so surreal! At 20 he already runs circles around STP’s current singer Jeff Gutt. Need to hear more from these kids. They might’ve unlocked the future of rock n’ roll! Niko, London’s childhood friend is the guitar player but I’d be damned if that’s not Slash playing on this track. Unless Niko’s sound has fully developed past those Joe Perry riffs. edit: So it is Niko. Very impressive. These guys don’t need
  2. If they can manage to play at the highest level I’m sure they can handle shaving
  3. The drums Is the reason Rock am ring, rio 91, & Ritz 88 Jungle sounds so good. All 3 drummers play it with incredible energy and swing that’s the driving force for the song and the entire band. Especially Brain & Adler! Swing drops a bit on Sorum After the bombastic start. The main reason Rock am ring, rio 91, & Ritz 88 Reading 2010 sounds like shit. Extremely bland and zapped of energy because Frank as a drummer is not on their level. Give all 4 versions a listen. Listen to the energy level as soon as the drums kick in. Frank’s is a major dud. The songs goes to s
  4. It’s very hard to notice Gilby as he often doubles up on whatever Slash is playing.
  5. Illegal eye, but more so the little Izzy-request nuances in his playing that complimented Slash’s playing. Which Slash has referenced . Of the top of my Dave can be heard doing his thing in the left channel on Slither, Superhuman, Illegal I Song, Headspace, Get out the door, Spectacle, Come on, Come in, Pills demos etc, American Man, She Mine, & She Builds quick machines
  6. You are probably right. Further proof this is not a band. It’s a dysfunctional joke of a band while only purpose is lining the pockets of the band and their entourage. They’ve come a long way from the old loft behind guitar center with outdoor shower days
  7. Yea they had Kushner on deck knowing Izzys history. it was duff who brought Kushner in. Dave replaced Squires when he and Rouse were busy with their band ACS. Just so happened to be that Slash and Scott knew Dave. Dave was the perfect fit for VR. Truly perfect. Matter of fact since we’ll never see Izzy I rather have Dave in gnr over Richard & Gilby. He’d add some of the creative element that was lost when Robin Finck bolted. Maybe Axl will be inspired again. He’s been mailing it in ever since Robin left as he clearly had no confirm Richard, frank bumble etc
  8. I’m with Tomass. Those slash Gilby live bits were pure gold .
  9. VR wanted to experiment with a newer more modern sound especially once Scott signed up. Had Izzy stuck it out things would’ve turned out differently because those guys make magic. Once Izzy left they wanted to steer clear From sounding like rehashed Rolling Stones/Bad Company. Also VR was competing with Nuguns. Gilby was done being a solo artist by that time as he came to realize making expensive records and footing the bill for logistically expensive tours to go and play empty bars in front of 10-15 bar dwellers just wasn’t lucrative enough. Gilby certainly would’ve jumped at the
  10. “Alien” from the Swag album - my favorite Gilby song. What a great time 2000-2002 was for my 17-19yr old self. Blasting Snakepit, Loaded, Gilby, Izzy & nuguns in my first car(Mustang). Visiting Hollywood & the Strip for the first time
  11. Gnr really don’t have an original song I that’s overrated but I’ll go with You’re Crazy covers LALD & KOHD. More overplayed than overrated
  12. Maybe Slash is trying to expand his horizon. He’s always studying and trying to be a better more rounded player. Maybe he will successfully expand his skills and re-invent himself. That would really be something. If he could shred like with best shredders and not losing his superior melodic style. He’s got a long way to go that’s for sure.
  13. I Graduated same year 2001. So she is 36-37 like me. As was previously believed to be the case years ago. Don’t see the big deal in acknowledging it. Certainly DumB and unnecessary to lie. Unless u truly believe everyone would buy the idea that you are the next up and coming 20 something year old Taylor Swift
  14. They don’t talk about the underage girls. Other members and rivals talk about it. Anyway totally different times in the early 80s. Rampant drink and driving etc
  15. I think as the years went by with all the criticism And pressure from gnr fans to do the classic songs justice he caved and did did the right thing. Even though Axl probably had no issue with it and likely encouraged him to give it his own take as Axl wanted to erase Slash from gnr’s history at the time
  16. Also keep in mind as evident by how he treated Sorum, Izzy & Spineless Punker Duff, Slash is a bit two-faced and not the carefree, easy going, gets along with everyone, sweetheart he is portrayed to be.
  17. He actually played a decent version of Bucket’s TWAT solo. It seems Slash has no respect for Robin. He was the one who directly replaced Slash after all. On the other hand Slash praises Buckethead’s virtuosity. I’m convinced he purposely butchers Robins solo and doesn’t give them the time of day. In Slash’s mind Robin butchered his iconic solos so now he’s returning the favor by butchering Robin’s. Same as with the Sweet Child of Mine intro. Slash hated the song, thought it was cheesy and probably hated the fact that it was Axl’s song and not a collaborative effort like most of Appetite w
  18. Some of the awkward bends are intentional. Finck learned traditional guitar when he was young. Then he threw the book out and began experimenting with different sounds whole developing his own sound. Like those before him ie: Les Paul, Hendrix eve etc. The awkward bends and especially he sporadically jumps up and down the fret board finding gorgeous notes is quite unique and fresh sounding. That and his raunchy grudge tone. All the reasons why he got the gnr gig in the first place. Just like you guys as a Slash fan I thought he was terrible in 2001-2002 but he really grew on m
  19. Yea if it’s a fan of a person or band you hear things like I hope he/she has matured and changed their views. if it’s someone he/she doesn’t like ie: Trump, Biden it doesn’t matter that they said it 40yrs ago. They deserves to lose their jobs, everything
  20. Or maybe because Hetfield is pro cops while Ice promotes killing cops. Tongue in cheek But you can see how it would inspire some fans
  21. Ok fair enough blame all local political leaders but why blame the President?
  22. They would’ve been a band touring on nostalgia for 14yrs and counting. no CD, contraband, Libertad, Slash, SMKC No new music whatsoever. Years reworking CD era songs. Izzy would’ve checked out after half a day
  23. Slash being Just as motivated by money and materialism as Axl & Duff Should come as no surprise. Slash end Velvet Revolver because he didn’t need them. It was more lucrative to do his own thing under his name with hired guns
