  1. 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
  2. Yeah, I get that. I usually play with a Rocker 15 through a 1x12 at home. Having something like that would be more of a novelty as Marshalls aren’t generally my preference They normally go for 7-800 on the used market and figured there would be a premium on that one, but it did make me think for a second when I saw it
  3. He’s probably still doing just fine. Didn’t he recently sell his nyc apt? Everyone thins out the herd once in a while. It takes up a ton of space if you’re not using it. Hilarious that he had a Marshall SL5. If it was under 900, I would have thought about it. A Richard Fortus owned Slash signature AFD amp? My guess is he’s looking for something like a burst. That or he can simply put the $ elsewhere and invest it in something better than guitars/gear. He’s cashing out at a good time. The market is great for used gear right now
  4. Chicago Music Exchange is also selling a huge amount of Fortus gear right now. Some really cool stuff
  5. Yeah, and some of it he will probably make something good off his initial investment. It’s a good time to sell. Stuff like 70’s Gibsons, Silverbursts, etc...have done well over the last 20 yrs He still has a huge collection after this. You can’t keep it forever and it takes up a ton of space. Gotta thin out the herd at times. I’m sure he has new stuff that comes in constantly. Maybe he’s eyeing something big or he can invest it elsewhere. Life happens
  6. Seems like the set list is static from tour to tour or each era of the band. They do usually add a song or two each time out. Otherwise it’s the same order. That’s being said, people come out to hear Jungle and the hits and there’s only a handful of albums to choose from. The majority of people don’t want to hear Locomotive let alone stuff from CD. It’s a good thing that stuff gets played and it does cater to core fans I think fans here in this community would enjoy it more if the order of songs were just more spontaneous. Just opening with different songs makes you think you’re witnessi
  7. Ashba was coming off hot from Sixx AM and the Crue record. The issue was that GNR couldn’t release an album. You were left with Ashba only showcasing himself as live player in that band. When comparing him to Fortus and Bumble in that setting, it’s easy to come up short there
  8. It still would have been too late in 2000 for those songs imo. OMG didn’t get great traction in 1999. From what we heard from the leaks and those versions that are more stripped back? The Blues, Chinese Democracy, and There Was A Time would have fared well. Those versions should have been released
  9. To be fair here, Bucket never really had a chance either in that live setting. He was around for essentially half a tour before the whole thing blew up. We’ve heard a lot of what he brought to the studio though, which seems like he was able to step in there, show some of his creative force and influence the sound of the band
  10. The logistics of packing a stadium regardless of the act/event seems like a ways away
  11. It’s relevant though. Would Axl have felt the need to reinvent with the CD era if there was something else left from previous years that was unfinished? Starting from scratch led to multiple ideas of what it should be. Ultimately that seems like it was a major issue between them The label and management probably wanted to squeeze the most possible out of them. They weren’t thinking about 5 years, careers or their well being. Not with the condition Slash Duff and even Axl were in. Not with Steven gone and Izzy one foot out of the door. Everyone was cashing in on them
  12. Maybe. An issue thats gets overlooked is that they pretty much emptied the vault for the Illusions. For the most part, their songs could take years to complete going to back before Appetite Sure Izzy was a major cog that was missing, but I’m not sure if that would have sped things up either. They probably needed to hold back some of the material. Songs such as Breakdown, Locomotive etc... could have used some more time in the oven and provided a starting point for the next record. Starting from scratch could have been daunting for a band that had previously relied on something left in th
  13. Good stuff! I bought my vinyl back when it was released just so I could listen to Coma (the Japanese CD import was more expensive at the time) That album is def not something I bring out for a listen. It’s more of a collection piece than anything now and it’s stored correctly. Maybe I should have bought more! They were around $30 on Amazon back then I get that the price point for a Live Era reissue may be a bit much. Doesn’t explain why they haven’t done TSI though. Not that anything can be explained with this band
  14. It may kill the band in that will the guaranteed money they draw in the future still be worth it to those 3? Especially in a crowded live music space when things return. Everyone will be touring. The market will be flooded. $ will be more scarce from promoters and fans
  15. Id certainly be interested in hearing it. Remember the end of SCOM 99. It’s really nothing like the original recording or the live versions. I would think if AFD 99 exists, there would be more moments like that
  16. Not likely. The tempos wouldn’t match. Guns didn’t play live to a click back then
  17. Im happy with just grabbing the vinyl from the store a while back. Came with a red cassette. Also grabbed the CD version back when it was 40 bucks. in essence I got the vinyl, cds, the cassette, the litho and the rest of the bs for around 150
  18. This stuff obviously wasn’t mixed for release and pulled straight from the source. What works live in a building often doesn’t translate elsewhere. At a certain point it’s not releasable for even a passing YouTube upload. It needs to be edited and remixed (if they even have multi tracks )
  19. I believe they were done trying to sabotage each other’s projects by that point. Duff had shared the stage and the ice had been broken. Would it have happened/broached in 2013? Maybe not for timing reasons, but I think they were able to think about the brand and what they could work together on if not a possible reunion down the line
  20. I doubt they’re from the same session. That would mean the source material live is at the same tempo as the re-recording. Which they never played to a click live. It would be lunacy for even GNR to recreate it They definitely redid parts for Live Era. A lot of bands did this for live albums. I’m pretty sure Robin was used for some backing vocals. I think that would have been done separately. They had the studio booked the entire time to do it. It could have been something where Gilby/Izzy weren’t directly in front of their mic on the source material. They weren’t going to call in t
  21. The band didn’t perform to a click live back then. Therefore anything they had probably didn’t line up in time with anything they had recorded. If vocals exist, they were most likely done separately and are different from Live Era takes is my guess
  22. Mainly because that was going to be his role. He’d take the Bucket leads in a 2 guitar lineup going back and forth with Robin in 2006. It’s a shame we didn’t see that
  23. For the fanbase to have “first dibs” to pay full price for tickets. For that opportunity, you pay a membership fee. It’s a virtual shakedown street
  24. Yeah but they aren’t currently in print and haven’t been reissued since they were originally released Yeah but they aren’t currently in print and haven’t been reissued since they were originally released
