I’ve been thinking about getting a Use Your Illusion tattoo since I was 14 years old and today, after 5 years, I finally did it! I think it turned out great and couldn’t be happier with it!

Anyone else losing interest in this band due to Fernando's sheer incompetence? It's one thing to be a touring nostalgia band, that's fine, but the attitude in his responses to fans has actually made m

I’m not going to watch it, I’m guessing you can’t unsee it 😳

Seriously it will be 3 to 4 minutrs of your life you wont get back. Its just generic music that you would hear on the radio and turn the channel after 5 seconds.

Add to that ashbas guitar swinging and the facial expressions with the clip he looks like a tool.

Good shout. Fernando confirmed it’s not legality which is an issue - they own all the rights.

I really hope someone in the background is preserving this stuff. Has he or the band ever engaged with you in the past on this stuff? They should.

What’s that? Axl was a fucking force of nature at one point?

 

Oh. Yeah.

I wish the TSI version of Hair of the Dog was this... frightening? lol

You hit the nail on the head. There's no better way to describe Axl in those clips other than "a force".

In those three minutes or so it reminded me why they became my favourite band of all time from the moment I first heard them. Incredible.

I like how they take what is probably a weaker Skid Row song, the studio version is too glossy and produced, and just rip it down to the studs and inject it with venom.  
 

Regardless of how TSI turned out, when you see how they could just tear covers apart during their prime, you definitely see the logic to it.

Definitely. I've always really really enjoyed TSI though. Loved it when it came out, love it now!

Can we refrain from posting youtube videos?

I figured it was okay because it’s not a GNR show, not GNR as a band, there’s no GNR songs and it’s not commercial.

and it’s rad 😎

Does anyone have a high quality image of the 'B-Sides N' EP's' sleeve from the Locked N Loaded boxset?

I'm planning on tidying up the music on my phone over the weekend. At the moment I'm just using the regular Appetite album cover for all 4 discs.

Just listened to Estranged from Houston 2016. If THAT gig or any around that gig ever get released we will all be happy - every clip is vocally very good and band seem really on it.

Why doesn’t a SBD/IEM of cool gigs like this ever leak....🤬

I'd struggle to define it so here's one I found 

A hypebeast is defined as someone, usually male, who collects fashion pieces that are “hype” (cool and trendy) in order to impress others.

Ashba Water. Big deal that's not cool human bodies are 75% water we all have it already. We are the water.

They only have VHS tapes? Wouldn't they have actual film? I assume the video source was taken on film, and not directly on a home video type tape.

Does anyone what went into the mixing of the UYI albums, I mean between the demos--which a lot of the performances sound the same (see the Garden demo/instrumental)-- to the final mix? I went through and listened to a couple demos on a car ride recently and it seems like the grit and rawness of the performances, a lot of the heaviness, was taken out by Bill Price. Matt's drums sound noticable worse.

The rhythm guitar sections are too quiet, even Slash's, and everything doesn't have the forward, in your face sound that TSI has; weren't all three records recorded at the same time? Just seems funny the punk-covers album sounds the best out of the catalogue 😂

Local radio has been playing YCBM lately and I fucking love it :headbang::headbang:

Whats more, I think I have a fellow poster to thank for it. About 2 or more years back I complained on here that my local station didnt play Guns, and even when tours were announced theyd only play the Jungle intro.

A poster, whom I forget who it was, asked me the station. I remember having the impression they worked in radio programming or something. Not long thereafter my station started plying Guns... a lot!

Thanks to whoever that was :slash::axl92:

Yep, the final mixes kinda suck. I kinda have come to love them for what they are - over indulgence and bonkers personalities, summiting the heights of rock and roll decadence.

Agreed about TSI being the best mix over all. UYI could have sounded that good to I guess?

I think there are a few different mixes out there which may surface on the proposed UYI Deluxe set (Bob Clearmountain ones and probably a few we don’t even know about). It’s not beyond the realms of possibility they include a new mix too I suppose....the band weren’t overly enthusiastic about the final one in the end after all.

Yes! I would love this! Never thought about how possible it is that theres multiple other mixes. Or at least 2-3 tracks by people trying out for the job.

Are we already aware that Duff cut his hair? It looks like its not dyed - much like his Neurotic Outsiders look.
