  1. This has nothing to do with anything. Beta just shared a picture of MJ and Paul from Say Say Say. Made me think of this thread. 😀 So I just watched the video. It's been a while.

    Another new song 'Spies':
  3. In my mind I always view BOTD as EP and never think of the remixes. Love all the new songs. My favorite is 'Morphine'. It's one of the better songs about drug addiction out there and musicially haunting. Very bleak at the end. "You just sit around. Just talking nothing. Just taking morphine." 'Is It Scary' was mentioned here many times. Rightfully so. These must be amongst his best lyrics for sure. I feel 'Morphine' and 'Is It Scary' are some of MJ's more personal songs. And MJ = King of Bridges! 'Blood on the Danceflor' is a killer track. Very underrated. Love the video. Burgundy red suite, burgundy red lipstick, french plait, sitting on a chair. Truly bold and unique. Really like 'Ghosts'. And like 'Superfly Sister' too.
  4. I guess it would be easy for Gn'R/Axl to book some PR gigs. Go on a talk show. Be funny. Release cool looking images or promo clips. Create some kind of buzz. Everybody else does it and proper PR obviously works. It looks like they simply don't want to do it. And of course this affects sales, popularity, etc. in a negative way. Imho it's a choice anybody has the right to make. I wouldn't mind the lack of popularity, less sales and certainly not concerts at smaller venues, if there woud be a new album. I guess we all can agree Chinese Democracy could have done much better with proper promotion. Back then I actually didn't even realize it had in fact come out for a very long time. I don't claim to understand what they're doing and why (and why it always takes so long), but I"ve always to some degree enjoyed what we've got so far. I really like Chinese Democracy, loved the reunion, liked the tours and had/have a blast with Absurd and Hard Skool. Of course I notice a lot of your critizisms too. I guess at the end of the day I don't take it as seriously as some of you guys. I've loved being a Gn'R fan so far. It's seriously entertaining. The drama. More so in the past, but also ongoing. Remember for example Niven and Goldstein accusing each other via press of using Black magic. Priceless. LOL. To conclude this rambling: I hope for a new record. I have no idea if and when it will come. All Interviews indicate that they want to put out more. But yes, this is Gn'R.
  5. Axl's mother was 16 years older and his stepfather was actually only 14 years older than himself. So he's not that far off. You can thank our own @Blackstarand @Lumikkifor doing some extensive research.
  6. I know I am months behind... The first thing that crossed my mind was that he was unique. Someone who truly stands out and there was no one else like him. He took risks with his performances, fashion choices and opinionated speaches (rants). I like what @Aljasaid about him being many things at once and hard to pinpoint. I feel the pinnacle of people's fascination with Axl is long gone, though. I am still a fan and highly aprreciate his past contributions as artist and looking forward if he chooses to share more. He seems more human nowadays, which I believe is a good thing for someones health and well being.

  8. I thought those middle parts are their new thing. Like the new typical Gn'R thing in the middle of each song. Like a common thread. I like what Slash does though.
