  2. Those look awesome! I have recently shifted to Ikea shelves (which fit records) perfectly from bins. Although I haven't quite figured out how many records should be on each shelf. Plus it allows for storage of other stuff. Those shelves look quite space efficient.

    • Old Axl sound:  Well this isn't realistic, no singer sounds the same as the 80s and early 90s, yes we could have more rasp but there are other ways for Axl to sound better
    • New Album: I'm all for new music, I personally think this, a new setlist and the vault being unleashed are really all a single option since with  a new album comes a new set, and things from the Vault will likely be released in this form
    • AFD Line Up: I'm fine with the current line up, although Frank isn't always the best, this isn't high on my list
    • New Setlist: We got coma, dead horse, locomotive, among other tracks not played in years, yes it could be better paced and have more but GNR only really has 5 albums we do get a fair bit of their catalog
    • Management: This is also needed but if we could get a new album plus some stuff from the vault with this one, I'd be okay with it. Could be a lot better but this option could result in all of the above and below excluding the AFD reunion occuring
    • Unleash The Vault: See New album comment. 

    I'm an optimist, and I believe they will release an album and I'm young enough to think that I will see the vault be released in my lifetime

    There's this one record store fairly close to my house that used to kick major ass in the 90s, bit they've gone way downhill over the past 15 years or so. 

    I stopped in there about 5 years ago maybe just to see if it was as bad as I'd heard. The rumors were true :( the store was like 90% drug paraphernalia and 10% music.

    Anyway, they had a tiny vinyl section so I flipped through it and BAM, they had a copy of the Friday Music pressing of Empire. I've never been back since but that one stop in was worth it lol. 

    That is a real shame, we have one across town, but I've had spotty luck so I decided to give it a go today, it appears that the quality of the store has greatly increased since I was last there about 2 years ago, I normally do a day trip into Vancouver and hit stores there but today was a pleasent surprise a fair number of the ones of the list were from there.

    Thank you very much and hot damn, that's a great selection of vinyl you got for yourself! The only Queensryche I have is Empire (which I love) but I need to get some more. 

    I've been hunting for Empire and The Warning for a while. I do have The Verdict, Rage For Order and my personal favourite of Operation: Mindcrime which now that I think of it is in need of a spin in the near future.

    As you get older your voice changes for some singers not all because Klaus and Rob Halford can still sing as high as before.

    I guess shit happens to some singers, but Axl is still one of the best frontmen of all time. I still love hearing him sing live even if he sounds different.

    First and foremost I greatly appreciate your mention of Klaus, he doesn't get the praise he deserves in his performances. I think Klaus' longevity is partially him taking care of his voice and the other part that Scorpions have built in breaks into their setlist, on their latest tour Klaus only has to sing about 3 songs before he gets a break, but by doing so he is able to give an entertaining performance and a strong vocal on basically all songs. They have built in a guitar solo, an instrumental and a drum solo into their shows plus the encore break, giving about 15 non-instrumental songs which while it isn't exactly what the fans would want, it is a way to make them able to continue to tour even as the band members age. I loved the 2017 lengthy shows, but I'd also be willing to see a more compact 20 song show if it meant Axl was in top form throughout.

    So Snaepit was formed as we know if '95. Not too long after the culmination of the UYI Tour. Slash was Riding high. But Snakepit never really took off. It could of easily been a huge band, but always seemed to lack something. What do you guys think is missing?

    From what I read in Slash's book the record label was only willing to let him do a tiny tour for the first album and then said they wouldn't do anything else until a new GNR record came out, soon after Slash quit. I don't recall if the two snakepit albums were on the same label so that might have played a role and as others have said rock was on the decline.
