  1. Guess who won’t be touring a new record in the first half of 2022?
  2. Yeah. Especially when they used Gibson pickups in the new Epi 1959. If anyone is really in the market for a Slash epiphone, I’d highly suggest the older models. Especially the 2010 Epiphone Appetite model. Great looking top and the color looks correct. Comes stock with the Duncans and the used market is still around these new models for the time being
  3. It takes the other 2 to sign off on the licensing to use GNR music. Slash/his team would have to approve SMKC being used here as well but it’s a much easier road Don’t think it’s anymore than that On a side note, disappointing they aren’t using his new Gibson or Seymour Duncan pickups in these guitars at that price point. The older epiphones came stock with the Duncans.
  4. They probably didn’t want to pay anyone to mix them. Whether it’s because these vids won’t generate enough ad revenue to pay for it, or to keep things under the radar and not need to get approvals from the 3 of them once $ is involved
  5. Maybe. I’m sure people have tried. Thing is Axl is pushing 60. What is GNR now realistically in the market? Artistically and what they stand for? The time for that was probably at least 20 years ago.
  6. Im sure there’s been a laundry list of promoters and people trying to make it happen since the late 90’s. You’re right, it was Axl. However I don’t believe he goes ahead if he felt or perceived to be manipulated or pressured into the situation. Whether it was valid to feel that way or not. He probably feels comfortable with TB and doesn’t feel that tug. Managers aren’t miracle workers. If the artist doesn’t want to play ball, things won’t happen. Is Azoff a better manager and more respected or perhaps feared? You bet. That doesn’t mean Axl has to listen though. I think if you look back at
  7. Really whatever management the band has had since Izzy/Steven left has been more or less similar. The artist directs management in how they want to operate. It’s obviously coming from Axl. This is how he wants things run. They’ve had professional managers and an industry giant with Azoff. It didn’t matter. Axl went dark when they released the album. He’s had a handful of interviews since 1994. He doesn’t really interact with the fanbase outside of the stage and if it does happen, it’s often confrontational. Band members more or less shy away from any details with the ongoings. None of this st
  8. He felt that Azoff and the label “sabotaged” the album, forced its release with the ultimate goal of bringing on a reunion If that were his fears, then why sign with Azoff? The guy notoriously meddles with artists, labels, promoters etc to get his outcome and is the major power player in the industry. Of course he wanted to cash in on a reunion. Why else is he interested in representing you? I don’t think Axl ever truly intended on releasing anything. I think he was upset at the industry and the label for dictating his art and rejecting the first submission. So he took their $, ra
  9. They also own their old masters and have their own label. They can pretty much do whatever they want with the material. Perhaps GNR would have more freedom if they had fulfilled their recording contract
  10. When you’re relying on intermediaries for communication, you’re also beholden to their personal slants and even agendas They all have a version to what happened because they weren’t mentally and/or physically there to address it. They have no one to blame but themselves A band can function or not function in many different ways. Who’s to say what’s the official definition. I think we all know what the band’s focus has been these last few years. I think we all know the focus for a few periods of the band’s history. There have been multiple off ramps and reasons for fans to aba
  11. You really want re-recorded CD II songs with vocals that were done 20 yrs ago? If anything happens, it will most likely be that Any release would be used simply to help sell concert tickets to keep getting that guaranteed fee. That’s simply where they are in their careers. New music isn’t the focus. The focus is to play large venues for big checks. New music is simply some gasoline for the touring engine. They won’t release anything until the tank starts to look empty
  12. They’re a nostalgia act who’s cashing in on the reunion. That’s whether they release new music or not. People come out to hear songs that were written 30yrs ago
  13. You can count on one hand the amount of in depth interviews he’s given since Slash quit So really anything of substance that he doesn’t want to be asked publicly since then
