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

Is there a decent quality performance of Rocket Queen ever that doesn't consist of any of the below: 

Talkbox solo

30 minute solo / jam

Axl rapping

Nu Guns

 

Closest I've seen is the Ritz but Axl missed half the song 😀

 

 

Ritz 87 or Marquee 87 or Japan 88 or Melbourne 88 (Melbourne and Japan 88 have drum solos) and maybe Perkins Palace 87 (haven’t listened to it in a while)

I really like The Seeker though, just wish they'd play the deepcuts instead of covers.

Need a cover for the album to get that UYI vibe. The Seeker could be a single. 

Then they need a song for Terminator movie soundtrack. Jackie Chaninator. 

And a power ballad.

In the world of GNR news, i'm really starting to get tired of GNR Central ripping off threads here and publishing clickbait articles and videos. While i respect that they have done some original stuff, and while i know that as members of these forums, they are similarly struggling with the lack of news and substance, i just find it annoying. I suppose we are not their target audience though.

Just had some sudden memory flashes from the Oslo show this year, and I'm still pumped from that transition from Memory to Attitude, I was preparing for New Rose but hoping for Attitude, and I just lost it when they started playing it.

Few bands can give me such lasting joy over a dumb cover :lol:

You know what would be bad ass? Brian May joining GN'R onstage for Catcher. Why hasn't this happened yet?

Maybe because he put the effort to record a beautiful part and then they decided to discard it. I don't think May holds a grudge 10 years later, but also I don't think he'd jump at the oportunity to play something that the band (Axl) deemed not a good fit for the song.

Isn’t the solo on the final version just robin copying Brian’s version?

May was offered by Axl in 2006 to play Catcher live with Guns at the time. I don't exactly remember why he didn't perform with them but he was in the audience at that show. iirc he said he preferred to just watch the show.

I just don't understand why Axl took out Brian's parts. I've got nothing against Ron, but Brian was a much better fit for the song. After 10 years I still can't get used to the album solo.

A lot of Ron's work on the album just sounds like he was locked in a room and forced to rerecord other people's stuff instead of just being let loose to do his own thing. The only thing he did that sounds organic was the fretless stuff on the title track IMO.
