Axl: I also have a kick ass rocker Slash: Is it about me? Axl:...

I cannot wait for Soul Monster to leak so I can spend a disproportionate amount of time arguing with it.

In other words we can conclude it is entirely safe to leak. Let me repeat: IT IS ENTIRELY SAFE TO LEAK.

I was actually at the Vegas 01 dec 29th show, Vegas NYE 2011, and one of those November 2012 shows not sure of the exact date. But Izzy was there! Oh and the second Vegas 2016 show. Hated that Axl was in the fucking chair but he sounded awesome!

 

Nice! Izzy was at the last two shows in 2012 (November 23 and 24) and that was the last time he publicly performed with Axl. There were some really cool moments but I'd probably rate those as the 'worst' GNR shows I've seen... but that really says more about how good the other shows were. 14 Years and Dead Flowers were really cool even though Axl didn't sound great... the weird thing about that time period was that Axl's clean voice mostly sounded completely Mickey and awful, but every now and then he'd use a cool, vintage-sounding, heavily mid-western accent. It was weird, but I like that voice. And there were moments where he'd sing with a strong clean voice or the classic raspy voice, like WTTJ was way better in 2012 than it was in 2017 for example.

I met Bumblefoot at both residencies btw, super nice guy, I was kinda drunk the 2nd time and asked him if they could play TWAT and Prostitute (they'd played them both the night before, for the first times in ages) and sure enough, he gave me a funny look when they started playing TWAT the next night (I was in the front row, on his side of the stage).

Was 12/29/01 a good show? I wish a video of that one existed.

It was a little off in the beginning but after that....amazing. Axl was in insane shape and it was the original CD band. I literally to this day have never been that excited.

Did Axl walk off during OMG or did his mic just stop working? Was his voice similar to other 2001/02 shows or did he sound more like 2006? (He looked physically a lot more like 2006 Axl than Rio 2001 Axl, so I've always wondered if his vocals were more raspy at those shows).

Apparently, these are unheard songs with Axl vocals on them:

PRL

Eye On You

Moustache

Quicksong

Quicksong w Buckethead

Zodiac 13

Tonto

Real Doll Dot Com

Atlas Shrugged

Silkworms (not the 2018 leak)

Billionaire

State of Grace

Devious Bastard

Hardschool

Dummy

Me & My Elvis

 

When the story about the locker first broke, somebody posted this list somewhere (can't remember which thread) and I copy and pasted it.

It's okay. Just... okay. Atlas Shrugged was a song that has long floated around, and it sounds every bit like it. That's not to say it's a bad song. It just sounds like Axl's foray into grunge. Kind of almost Soundgarden/Alice In Chains sounding to some extent to me. 

I like it, but it's more filler than "big gun" to me. I don't think it'd be a top 10 track on the Chinese Democracy album we got, which was lackluster as a whole.

Yes his mic did stop working and he did walk off. Came back later and said that of course everything was going wrong because it was the 1st show he had asked to do in 8 years. Robin threw his guitar down at the end. Robin sang most of the song. Similar to other 2001/02 shows vocally.

Please give me the names of rock bands that still put out great songs (except the very famous ones like NIN, Muse etc).

I find rock music absolutely garbage nowadays. 

Well, i like tool and they just released their first album since 2006...and it's great :)

@D.. to answer your question regarding present-day rock music, I and many others agree that Slipknot’s new record that they just dropped last month, We Are Not Your Kind, is easily their best since 2004’s Subliminal Verses, maybe even 2001’s Iowa! Tool’s new record that they just dropped was also great (tho Tool itself has always been an acquired taste for most, which I understand).

Metallica’s Hardwired record that they dropped a few years back was easily their best since The Black Album (tho I guess that’s not saying much since everything in between sucked). Greta Van Fleet’s double EP was pretty good (tho admittedly the full-length album that followed was disappointing but they’re still just kids so I’ll give them a pass). RHCP’s most recent record The Getaway is very different from their other stuff and a bit of an acquired taste but personally I like it. Then you have bands that may not necessarily still make great albums in full but still manage to put out kickass hit singles like Smashing Pumpkins, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, The Struts, and hell even our very own SMKC.

i guess the point I’m trying to make is that, as far as I see it, rock is alive and well. The slipknot record just went to number one all over the world! That’s gotta count for something still, right?

Hell yeah can't get enough of SMKC. Best RnFnR band since VR.

Good but not great. Very clearly a demo. Like Hardschool, it has a lot of potential, but needs work.

Which is better, Hardschool or Atlas?

Haven't heard it but it seems like it's not that great of a song? Not as great as expected? What do you all think?

It’s good. I think a reworked version with Slash has the potential to be great

I like Hardschool better but it’s all subjective... Hardschool has a more traditional song structure and a catchier melody, but atlas goes into more unique territory, so it’s a matter of personal taste, I suppose.

There's more too- Kaleo, Royal Blood, Dirty Honey, Greta Van Fleet, etc

Anyone tried Magick Touch from Norway. I love them.

 

I loved the melody from the minute long leak of atlas and was expecting great things.

Turns out that is the best bit and I find the rest just average.

Hopefully it will grow on me.
