    Can recall seeing them in 2005 and noticing another guitar chugging under the whammy parts. Wasn't sure if it was a tape or they had another player backstage. It'll all be tracks at this point anyway. Backing vocals and possibly even bass piped in and they just do what they can on top.

    They probably have some guy backstage that way they don't have to be locked into a track and can be flexible if needed.

    Duff tells jokes at the start of Jericho's podcasts every week. Good of him to get involved in this!

    The Legion of Doom were a poor mans Demolition. 

    The Road Warriors (Legion of Doom) were in the wrestling game long before Demolition.   Demolition was made to mimic the Road Warriors.

     

    Del was a fan of the segment. He is a big wrestling fan:

    This segment on #AEWDynamite was the best wrestling segment since the #COVID19 #QuarantineLife began! Major props to
    @IAmJericho and  @DuffMcKagan for always being entertaining!!

    Nah it was fine. By 80's rockband DVD releases it was head and shoulders above the rest.

    You want to see what bad really is?

     

    Don't know if this criticism really holds any weight. Sure his vocals are rougher than the 90's (hell even rougher than 2010) but the reviews for the shows are overwhelmingly positive. 

    Id disagree with this for the most part, especially 2019+2020. He was clearly overworked in 2018 and it comes across in the vocals.

    But since then they've streamlined the setlist. Made sure the songs fit his vocals as best as possible (dropping this I love for a bit etc).  

    Of course f you just hate the clean voice then there's only so much Axl can do aside from incinerating his ability to sing. Imo as long as there's power behind it the clean voice is good.

    I am still impressed the Mick Mars is able to do that whammy bar bit during the intro and yet still plays the rhythm guitar part underneath it.   LOL

  4. Guns N' Roses will be headlining the festival on Friday, Jan. 31, in addition to a special performance by Snoop Dogg. The following day, last year's Super Bowl halftime performers, Maroon 5, will headline, and Dan + Shay will also take the stage.

    For fans who can't make it down to Miami, the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest TV show will feature highlights from the event and will air on Fox at 11 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 1. For tickets and more info on the event, check out SuperBowlMusicFest.com

  5. They do all these shows over the Super Bowl week. Here in Minneapolis they Had a Dave Mathews show and then a ton of shows at the Armory here (Concert hall located a block or two from US Bank Stadium). Just another  $$ Suck.  Parking spots were going for $60 -$75 a night in some of the local parking ramps.  We actually had a restaurant selling Guacamole and chips for $36!! It cuased such a upraor they said it was an "error" when called on it.

     

    Part of an article on some of the ridiculousness that goes along with having "the big game."

     

    "From $65 parking to $1,000 caviar or $800 for a night in a Shakopee hotel, the laws of supply and demand are kicking into high gear around the Twin Cities as a crush of visitors descends on the region. Locals may not be willing to pay the eye-popping prices, but businesses are counting on some fervent football fans opening their wallets and purses.

    One downtown restaurant, Ike’s Food and Cocktails, caused an internet uproar Monday when word leaked of a $36 guacamole and chips on its Super Bowl menu — alongside $72 beef skewers and other pricey items. A manager said the guacamole should have said $12, and the regular menu would still be available, but the restaurant is now offering a free order of guacamole to people who order something else and mention “Guac-Gate 2018.”

    Some restaurants are rolling out special menus with offerings tailored to the high rollers. The Oceanaire’s Super Bowl night menu includes $1,000 Iranian gold caviar, $72 for arctic char or $99 for 24 ounces of lobster tail. Penny pinchers may want to stick to the $14 side of creamed corn.

  6. Paradise City was played here on the radio back in 1987 here in Minneapolis before it was officially released in January 1989. I heard it on the radio and loved the tune, then it wasn't played for a long time.  

    Jungle came out in October 1987 and that was the song you heard on the radio. 

    Paradise came back on the radio after its "official" release in January 1989.

    I figured they get detailed stuff and maybe a personal assistant assigned to a couple of them.  I would need somebody to hold my hand, just take me to where I need to be. :lol:  My calendar for something like that would be so packed.  I'd be living off of it.  No wonder they stay on the stage for hours.  The only safe, uncomplicated place on the tour.  Know what they are doing there.

    They also have those people in each city.  A buddy of mine works for a company that picks up bands at the airport they will fly into a smaller airport on private jet (for those that fly in to do shows) and drives them to the venue.  Here in Minneapolis a lot of bands will "hub" out of Chicago and fly to shows in the midwest - Milwaukee, MSP/StPaul, St Louis, Detroit, etc.. While the gear/prod travels from venue to venue, the band fly's in, does the show and fly's out afterward. Not all bands do this, but those that do it gives them a sense of "home," while on the road.  He has driven for Metallica, Bob Segar and others.

    Wait, I'm so fucking lost.  There's no times or locations (just a city) on that calendar.  He's really bad at the calendar.  You'd think for an accountant major there would be more detail.   

    They all get a spiral bound notebook that has all the detail/logistics for every show/city on the tour or leg of a tour. The book includes details on flights, transportation, hotels, load in/outs, set times,venues etc. He just pulled the main points and put them on a calendar for easy reference.  Bands go to companies such as this one:  http://www.touringlogistics.com/ 

    Books also include this type of info: 

    • Tour Adamt/Art for cover
    • Date & Venue information
    • Personnel
    • Tour Related Offices/Vendors
    • Travel/Flight/Mileage Information
    • Set Times/Day Schedule
    • Press Schedule
    • Venue/Promoter/Production Manager Info
    • Currency/Embassy contact information

    Looks like he was telling him to keep the melody going. If you remember the actual song, it just goes to a tape cut. So, Slash could have ended at any time, Axl told him to bring it back around so he could sing it.

    This is the universal symbol in bands for "go around one more time." He wanted Slash to play that part again because he missed his  mark/cue to start vocals.
