  1. I got the strong feeling there would have been a new Guns N' Roses record this year, had COVID not happened. And to be honest, those who have released new albums this year haven't seen much in the way of sales. Take Katy Perry, for example. Her newest record fell out of the Billboard top 200 after two weeks. Granted, she sucks and in no way should be mentioned in the same breath as Guns N' Roses, but at one time she could move albums. Another example is Bon Jovi, whose most recent album '2020' debuted at number 19, but fell to number 145 in just it's second week. I don't expect the upcomi
  2. I ordered it from Amazon in August, with the ship date to be 10/9. Then when I looked at the order again, Amazon had changed the ship date to 10/30. So I just ended up cancelling. I had bought a copy of the Walmart splatter vinyl, anyway. Didn't really see myself needing another color.
  3. This Greatest Hits set is a hastily thrown together package, a money grab. Perhaps anyone who gets a copy with the backwards photo will have a potential collector's item if UMG decides to fix it in the future. I ordered the gold splatter version from Amazon, won't be shipping until October 9th at the earliest.
  4. Isn't it time to retire the Appetite For Destruction cross? Izzy and Steven aren't coming back, so stop trying to profit off something that isn't representing the current band.
  5. Possible updates: "She Lied" "She Was Misinformed" "She Doesn't Know Jack-Shit About What's Going On" "She's Getting A Free Copy Of Greatest Hits On Vinyl If She Doesn't Open Her Mouth Anymore"
  6. I elected to buy the import vinyl from Amazon, with the gold/red/white splatter. Their current price is $47.99, which could drop a little more before it's release date. For whatever reason, I don't have much interest in the picture disc.
  7. I got mine on Tuesday. Likewise, it was nice to see it back on my credit card.
  8. I bought a vinyl at Best Buy on release day. Didn't open it, probably never will. Come to think of it, I haven't listened to Chinese Democracy from start to finish in probably seven or eight years now. There's a lot of material that doesn't hold up, in my opinion, along with the whole "this isn't really Guns N' Roses" thing.
  9. The band’s focus right now is on the Greatest Hits vinyl. That’s all. Nothing else.
  10. I'm not optimistic, but the label could move a lot more copies of the Greatest Hits on vinyl if there was a hidden new track on one of the sides. Or they could tell people to play the records backwards, and every song will sound as if it was something new.
  11. I don't know if this has already been discussed in the official merchandise thread, but there is now a t-shirt commemorating the release of the Greatest Hits on vinyl. It looks decent. Can be bought seperately, or with the picture disc or 2 LP as a bundle package. https://gnrmerch.com/products/greatest-hits-t-shirt-picture-disc
  12. If I had to guess, Jarmo at HTGTH sucks Fernando's dick on a regular basis, and you can't speak ill of him Nirvana's song may have peaked in early 1992. November Rain peaked in late spring/early summer of '92
  13. I'm with you. It's too bad Irving Azoff didn't pan out. Funny how Axl was claiming Azoff was scheming to get the old band back together, and to tour with the reunited Van Halen. I have no doubt that Azoff would have gotten new music from the band if he was in charge. Fernando just makes decisions, or lack thereof, based on Axl's feelings on a given day.
  14. Who knows, maybe Sympathy For The Devil was re-recorded with Fortus replacing Paul Tobias’ contribution.
