    I just like those type of songs, I also like Anything Goes from AFD when not many do.

    Sorry mate.

    I was being a dickhead.

    I'm a big believer in liking the music you like and not caring what anyone else says. 

    I like anything goes too.

    I'm sure there's a lot of music i like that you might dislike!

    Doesn't touch You're A Lie WOF or even Driving Rain to be honest. I'm more into the deep tracks though anyway like Sugar Cane or Dirty Girl. Call Off The Dogs is the one I'm waiting to hear on this album, sounds like it's gonna be a quick badass song.

    You must be the only person on the planet that likes sugar cane! 

    I'd rather listen to William Shatner's rocket man.

    I'm actually assuming you're a troll because I'm finding it very hard to believe anyone could find anything redeeming about that song.


  3. I love it!

    I also love absurd. Like the loose punky feel.

    I wish duffs vocals were a touch higher and Axl's sat back in the music a bit more but small issues.

    Just so happy to have new music from guns after all this time.

    I'm desperate for more!


    Must admit Mmy favourite version of hardskool might be  the soundcheck with vocals pasted over the top.

    Really gotten in to that version.

    This is much better than the leaked version though.

    Looks like Josh is a touring member for Pearl Jam now. I believe he also plays on Eddie Vedder's new solo record. Kinda cool of them to embrace him like that after the Peppers canned him.

    How many friggin guitarists do they need!?!

     I guess the poster was trying to say as a guitar player they couldn't hear what She was doing with the guitar sound. What I'll say is, she isn't going to be playing the guitar parts for every song all the way through! she probably just doubles a part here and there I don't think she's about to pull out a keytar and take over Slash solos. Given the last few weeks maybe I shouldn't say anything so definite though😅

    I definitely wouldn't rule out the keytar.....

    As you say what she is doing is very subtle - but I think that's the whole idea!

    I'm a guitar player and I guarantee that Melissa is not "making guitars sound thicker." What does that even mean?

    She's dancing, singing some backing vocals and adding a keyboard line here and there. Otherwise, she's triggering samples that could easily be done by a computer without a human flailing about on stage (not that they're even needed...) There is definitely not a single person at a concert that would miss her contributions or lack thereof. 

    She is there because Axl wants her there and this is the Axl Rose show. 

    Dizzy I could understand. The Illusions had a lot of piano parts, so it made sense that they needed someone else rather than having Axl sitting behind a piano all night. But then we got Teddy as well....?!

    Like I told my dentist the other day "I'm a guitar player and I guarantee you I don't need a filling"

    How does being a guitar player make you an expert on keyboards??

    What was your guarantee by the way considering Melissa is quoted as sying she is "thickening the guitar sounds"?

    So do the Chili Peppers. They make no secret of having a backing musician who plays keyboards on a few songs and he isn't offstage either.

    They have him on stage for the songs that obviously contain keyboard - like dark necessities. 

    There was another bloke behind stage for tell me baby and some other songs.

    Also there is a difference between being onstage and being considered a member of the band.

    On the UYI albums you could say that Dizzy was not needed. He has some writing credits on CD though. He's needed on tour for playing the piano parts, so that Axl can be the frontman without having to sit on the piano for many songs.

    Melissa's role is adding effects, making guitars sound thicker, playing backing tracks, etc. Most bands have someone for these things, they just have them hidden behind the stage.


    Saw the chili peppers at a smaller venue a few years back and could see 2 guys on keyboards out the back.

    Remember specifically seeing a guy playing along to the chorus guitar line on Tell Me Baby.

    GnR just have this person out on stage.

    Personally, I don't want Slash to play just like the record but there's some stuff that just doesn't sound right at all to me. Taking Chinese Democracy songs out of the argument, look at Slash's recent renditions of his own Yesterdays solo. Just awful IMO. It's not that it doesn't sound like the record, it's that Slash doesn't sound like he gives a remote shit. Just my opinion 

    Yeah fair enough.

    I guess it is quite a subjective thing also.

    Some will love an improvised version - others won't. 

    I love Slash's TWAT and TIL (2016 at least) whereas others on this site have been apalled by them.

    We all will have our own opinions (just that I'm right and evryone else is wrong :lol:)

    Not even close to any quality filter.. I am convinced that no one in the band watches these things before they are released.. How could they?? If they did, then they obviously don't give a fuck.. If they didn't, then they obviously don't give a fuck.. Shame on Slash and Duff for being a part of all this.. They never liked Axl dragging the GnR name through the mud all those years and now they are just as guilty.. 

    They should just cancel the tour and Axl can pretend that it was booked without his knowledge.. He has done it in the past..

    I've always wondered how you maintain such a positive outlook.

    Your regular posts are like a ray of sunshine in my life.

    Silkworms could be re-worked into something special. My guess is the best version of it is likely the now discarded mix with the full vocal take we heard live in 2001 and 2002 with Bucket's parts.

    I do like the shorter intro in the leaked Bumble version. I do miss Josh's drums from the RM1 version though, his drums were killer.

    Drums 0.5db up or down?

    If anyone should write an unauthorized biography of Axl's life, it's the people on here. 

    ACT 1

    Axl enters the room - he's cracking jokes and appears less bloated.

    Axl:  Hey F'n Slash, how the f'n hell are ya? Rock n F'n roll!"
