A question regarding Appetite For Democracy....what exactly led to this getting released?

Im sure I read it was only released as part of some settlement with previous management or something which is why Axl didn’t really involve himself with interviews etc??

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  believe it was part of the deal with the venue as part of the residency, but I may be wrong...

"There was one problem: Ashley Johnson’s singing was too good. After spending time working with vocal coach Melissa Reese — a member of Guns N’ Roses — it was decided she would have to consciously sing worse to achieve a less refined sound."

Anyone else wish Duff would rotate his solo spot more frequently? I'd be fine with never hearing Attitude again, and it'd be cool to hear this band play stuff like Janie Jones or Seattlehead.

Would love to hear them play Seattlehead.

I would like to hear them play Back from Cali, Starlight, Gotten , Fall to pieces, even I hold on with Kid Rock, over any cover and even if Duff is singing it would be nice to do some Loaded stuff not some SI songs.

Any variety is good however there are plenty other songs on TSI that should be played (and should have been played ahead of The Seeker etc).....albeit going full rasp on Hair Of The Dog may destroy what vocals he has left!!

No I don't want to hear Frank butcher those songs.

I can't believe that Zodiac (the film) came out in 2007 and Axl didn't put Zodiac on the films soundtrack.

It could have been a great introduction to Chinese Democracy, and got people talking about GNR again before Chinese Democracy finally coming out.

Another missed opportunity in the GNR world.

On the current Mitch Lafon pod, Alan Niven starts talking shit about 'fake' live albums, and then Mitch chimes in like 'Umm... Talk to me about Live Like A Suicide??' :lol:

😂😂😂

Wasnt Niven around at the time the canned crowd was added to the Marquee stuff?

Anybody else think if we do get a UYI anniversary release "woke" GnR is going to omit certain songs like Pretty Tied Up, Back Off Bitch, maybe even Get In The Ring?

Maybe back off bitch but pretty tied up I doubt it and get in the ring is immature in hindsight but unless the journalists named had an issue then why would they.

No. They played Pretty Tied Up at soundcheck this year, and released Back Off Bitch on the AFD box. The only song they might omit, assuming The Spaghetti Incident is included in a UYI box, is Look At Your Game, Girl.

OIAM was and is, going to be an anomaly I think - due to the racial compoment and public controversy it caused when it came out. 

Considering GNR soundchecked Pretty Tied Up during the Mexico City soundcheck this year, haven't used any words in Back of Bitch that they haven't used in songs like It's So Easy, and Get In The Ring basically being a rock diss track of the press and one particular dude, I can't imagine the album being censored or musically any different beyond a remaster

And just to add to my comment above I’m not a fan of remastered and box sets with a few exceptions. I have the albums of GNR as they were intended to be heard and that’s fine with me. I have all the led zeppelin albums and they are from the 1994 remasters but they aren’t remastered to within an inch of their lives. I’ve heard the recent ones and it’s awful.

lol @ the thought of omitting songs for profanity or something like that. You guys realize the band just reissued AFD which has It's So Easy? Which by the way is their show opener? If they should remove any song it should be My World, then one can listen to UYI II all the way through and not end on an awful note.

I'm quite curious if they will do anything to the drum sound if they remaster UYI. That's something Axl said he's not a fan of, in the past.

I was thinking this a lot. I hope NOT!!! OIAM was censored from the AFD Box... just for the N word. 

Sex, violence and the shockin truth dont have to through the same censorship. Is meaningless. Go to the new age section.

One in a Million was never a part of AFD so not adding it to the AFD box set was an easy call.

Taking tracks off UYI is a different matter. The full albums are still available on Spotify so removing material from deluxe editions of them wouldn’t really serve any purpose. It’s So Easy is as problematic as any of the ones mentioned.
