  1. I’m here. Joining the play Hard Skool bandwagon!
  2. Yea that’s the kinda thing I’m looking forward to. Maybe it’s too late to ding into those Izzy VR songs Matt made reference too. Maybe we will hear them someday
  3. Any chance we see Izzy’s footprints on this record. It can be the difference between a great rock record vs a timeless classic like AFD/UYi. Im not good at pulling up old stories and we’ve discussed it over the years. I’m referring to the period when Izzy was in VR and they wrote all those songs. Matt said there were 10 songs there that would make a classic GN’R record. Also the songs Duff was working on with Izzy while Slash was out doing SMKC. Just before the reunion happened in 2014/15 Any realistic possibility or is it too much for the cash cow that is current gnr to have to split royalties with Izzy? It would be great. Izzy could make make a few live appearances without being a full member. Let Steven play on a few classic gnr sounding songs that he can help elevate etc Obviously Izzy played a vital role in the classic gnr sound we all love. His interplay with Slash. How he allowed the songs to breathe. His memorable hooks, rhythm & melodies is exactly what has been missing from Slash & duffs work over the years. I love VR but the songs for the most part were too straightforward and punk. However, Weiland saved that band with his creativity. VR would’ve tanked without him.
  4. Well they got rid of the long drawn out unnecessary intro right? So makes sense it be shorter
  5. This song with Izzy & Adler would be gnr. Right now it’s VR with Axl which isn’t a terrible thing
  6. Eu so Brasileiro meu. naci en São Paulo. 5 anos fui pro estados unidos👍
  7. Yes pretty much. Like live if hard and teaches you tough lessons. School is hard but you come out of it a better tougher person. Better prepared to face the world
  8. Yea the drum sound is terrible. Especially noticeable in the middle part. The typical muffled snare sound we are used to hearing these days. I can envision what this song would sound like with a more explosive drum track.
  9. Yup that’s how I’m listening. Always the best way to listen 👍
  10. It’s fine as a one off single barring they release a full album of more genuine Axl slash duff material. Like Set Me Free was released immediately. Before VR even started working on Contraband collectively. This is still like an action movie soundtrack song to me but I think I have to admit it sounds better than what I expected. Thought the original demo checkmate was trash at the time
  11. He posted pictures of her on his Instagram recently. Good lookin woman for sure
  12. Yea guess he moved to LA and remarried. That’s definitely not his ex-wife. He used to live in my county in NJ
  13. Caught the end of Coma. If I was going tonight and they brought back Coma I’d be ecstatic!
  14. Maybe it’s Fernando sure sounds like him. Impossible to tell if Slash said anything as he also was off camera. Axl said it correctly this time. I still remember him butchering Ferrar in NJ 2006 lol
  15. Maybe or maybe Green Day are just Hypocrites
  16. Yea and you need to add staff for pyro. With Covid they have to cut the fat.
  17. Ha if anything it’s Chicago that needs a make over. I’m sure downtown is beautiful but the surrounding areas? Crime capital
  18. Just curious where do u find these $59 pit tickets? Ticketmaster? so I’m prepared for Baltimore. Not lookin good tho. The arena only holds 14K😞
  19. Good question. I’m a huge Fan of Mike & FNM. No idea he was going thru stuff
  20. Fingers crossed the same happens in Baltimore where they will debut hardskool and Izzy will show up!😜
  21. People are around people all the time. It’s best that the people who feel this way just stay home. I guarantee you will be 100% safe from catching Covid
