  1. No, I don't think so. Slash and Duff seem to have accepted that, at this point, Axl is only interested in releasing pre-existing material and they willingly got into re-recording it. They also seem to have settled the business side, what the splits on the songs will be, etc. And, unlike 1994-96, two songs have already been released.
  2. Judging from Hard Skool and Absurd, it looks like they've picked songs that were written mostly by Axl, or Dizzy had a part in writing them, and could be redone to the point where they don't have to give writing credits to former members. If that's a plan and not just a coincidence, I guess Atlas Shrugged and Perhaps fall in this category, too, but I don't see how songs instrumentally written entirely by former members could fit in. So (and I'd speculated on this before Absurd and HS), although there may be an album of CD leftovers, it won't necessarily be what was intended to be released as "CD2".
  3. Despite SCOM being Myles' best GnR song (or, rather, the only one he does some justice to, imho) and although Axl hasn't been outstanding on it since the '80s (I particularly don't like the "ooh's" he has added after the chorus along the way in live performances), I much prefer this version, vocally, hands down.
  4. Also on Absurd and Hard Skool: Slash: They both have a lot of history. What happened was, Axl has all these songs that he recorded at some point along the way, and so Duff and I went and redid them, basically (laughs). [The interviewer comments that Slash’s stamp is all over them] You know, I write my own kind of parts to what else is going on, and just sort of… just took the drums and redid everything else.
  5. So we have: February-March 2022: SMKC tour (US). June-December 2022: GnR tour (Europe, Latin America, Australia/NZ - maybe they'll add some dates in Canada and or Japan, too?). January-February 2023: SMKC tour (Europe). I guess GnR are planning to do another tour in the summer of 2023, and maybe Slash will do a few dates in South America in March/April 2023. I don't think the timing of a GnR album depends on when Slash's tour wraps up. Now GnR are on a tour break and also Slash's album is released, but there's no reason to not release anything until 2023, since GnR will be touring in the meantime. So I think summer 2022 makes sense - but, of course, it's GnR.
  6. Actually I have to correct myself on this one: Richard, Bumblefoot and Del James follow one of his accounts. Also Perla follows him
  7. Yes, you're right. I watched it again and Axl says "Hey, Iz."
  8. Izzy says "How are you doing, buddy" and Axl says "Good" and smiles. I don't think there's anything strange or that Izzy is hardly acknowledged. Axl was walking into the stage and it's not that he and Izzy hadn't seen and talked to each other before that show. On stage at the shows they were warm with each other, Axl hugged him, etc. The Bumblefoot thing... I wonder who that guy was. Security, I guess? And Axl didn't even look at him (probably didn't even see him).
  9. Tommy Stinson is the only NuGnR member that Beta, Del James and Dizzy still follow on IG (and Beta often likes his posts). I think Brain doesn't have a personal IG account. Richard, Robin and Bumblefoot all follow each other. Frank is the only one from the current and former members who still follows Pitman. No one follows DJ Ashba. EDIT: Fortus, Bumblefoot and Del James follow one of his accounts.
  10. It's at #13 on the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart (same position as last week - that's the peak position in this chart so far): https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-mainstream-rock-tracks and at #27 on the Rock & Alternative Airplay chart (from #26 last week): https://assets.billboard.com/charts/rock-airplay Also #22 in Hot Hard Rock Songs (from #15 last week and #2 the week before): https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-hard-rock-songs * In the Billboard charts credits Axl, Slash, Duff and Dizzy are listed as songwriters: (Strange that it lists Axl as "W.B. Rose, Jr.") The song still hasn't appeared in any PRO repertories (ASCAP, GMR or SESAC), though.
  11. I don't recall anyone from the band or management ever saying that. That's something only some fans have been saying.
  12. Not yet, but I suppose it will be updated when the database is updated with more articles after 2010 and @SoulMonster includes them to the a-4-d.com history section. There is even an unreleased Slash song from the Snakepit 2 era titled "All Things Considered": Slash: It’s sort of a Cinderella story. I met all the guys at gigs. I met Rod Jackson and he put a lyric on a tape of mine, a song not on the album called ‘All Things Considered’. https://www.a-4-d.com/t5252-2000-12-25-classic-rock-mr-brownstone-slash
  13. Only in Slash interviews (and 6 times in an article about Slash by Alan Niven) https://www.a-4-d.com/t4337-the-phrase-all-things-considered-frequency-and-who-said-it#24420 EDIT: The phrase is also found 28 times in Slash's autobiography
  14. We don't know anything really, as there hasn't been anything as concrete as an announcement. We've had some clues, though, which point more towards an album existing than towards the opposite.
  15. Regardless of what the press release says, it's safe to assume that Slash and Duff will have a credit/share in the PROs (when the song is added), just like they have on Absurd
  16. So I guess the media could have taken the credits from Genius as well, even though it's not an official source and fans can edit them based only on assumptions.
  17. Thanks for clarifying. I'm curious about the writing credits in the description of your videos. For example, on your version of Hard Skool, all members of the 1999 lineup are credited as writers. Were those according to your best guess? Because it seems some media relied on your credits to their reports about the song, and then there was a press release from the band saying that it was written by Axl.
  18. Yes, fake. Doesn't appear in the ASCAP database search. Exactly. Actually Absurd took 3 or 4 weeks to appear. This one might take longer, because it probably won't even appear at all on ASCAP (none of Axl, Slash and Duff are on ASCAP and it's likely that there won't be any other writers credited).
  19. This is not the same show. It's the show on the previous night (Dec. 19, 1989), the pay per view one. Axl and Izzy were there for Salt Of The Earth at all three shows in Atlantic City, but Axl sang backing vocals on Mixed Emotions only on the third night (Dec. 20).
  20. I don't know if you're joking or not, but that did happen. Axl and Izzy had guested at all three Rolling Stones in Atlantic City (the second one was the pay-per-view one) and at the third show Axl also did backing vocals on Mixed Emotions.
  21. Great interview and great story about the CD title track. Josh is such a cool and interesting guy. I loved that his wife was chiming in
