instead of 1000s of fan emails, we should create some well thought wanted list together and let an admin from here send over our "9 steps master plan to please fans" or however we could call it.
new music sure! but if people request to get Ritz88, Paris92 etc. officially.......that should NEVER be a goal by us. We have them in really good quality already.

main focus should be unheard/unseen songs or song versions and footage we dont even have fan recordings, demos etc. from.

I agree with this - compile a wish list thats within reason. I wouldn’t omit Ritz 88 - it deserves an official release for the less fanatical who don’t know about the cool fan versions.....or at the very least some airplay of he gig/some songs on their channel. I know it may not be the best gig but it captures a time and essence.

As for a list - an easy start would be to get some cool pro shots of some songs out there - like a couple of songs from Troubadour or one of the gigs that we know was professionally filmed. Just a couple of songs would be a start!!

Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

Axl is close to 60 Reunion is now over 4 years old The last unheard new song was played in 2006 The last studio album was in 2008 The last new song before that in 1999 Every s

It's clearly going to be announced in a few days (or just after the holidays), along with the first single.

I can understand the pandemic affecting the business side of the album, due to albums mostly serving as a means to boost profile before a tour (where artists make the real money these days).

But goddamn, business is all that matters to this band.

Honestly, I wouldn't even bother to send anything. At best, they are trying to have more email adresses to send spam to.

It can’t hurt to try though....and if your spam goes through the roof just block it. Unless you are in the market for a GNR Laundry Bag.....😂

I agree with @Lim666 that we should have a complied single list of suggestions rather than 100’s of randoms which will have duplicate suggestions.

GNR nor Nando, give a shit about anyone here, or there ideas. It's just another ploy. Axl has nothing left. Any "new" music would be some regurgitated song that began 20 years ago, & would likley include 20 year old vocals. Though, I think its laughable to ever believe this band will ever release "new" (old as hell) music anyway. 

As long as there still selling tickets, what makes anyone believe they would care about anything else? There devotion to there fans?? Yeah ok.

Why would they bother saying anything if thats the case?

Btw I really liked how he recorded rock the rock 20 years ago for a future episode of the looney tunes show.

That just there showed his still happy to go in and nail vocals.

I am sure they wont be just chinese leftovers if they do release something. Chinese material for the most part is outdated.

I would be more than happy with an unreleased song, even if it's 20 years old. And... beside the fact, that axl still sounds great in studio, i guess his voice was way better 20 years ago. So, 20 years old vocals surely wouldn't harm a release...

They should release the leftovers CD II & III now, and then something new with Slash/Duff for the tour... what a beautiful dream... :rolleyes:

While I think that it is at least somewhat of step forward, with that "email us ideas" in an attempt to extend an olive branch - at this point do they really need emailed ideas to figure out what the fans want?

At this point, there is plenty of GNR merchandise out there.  They are playing shows - well not right now because nobody is, but you know what I mean lol.  The only thing left to do is either release studio material in any sort of form (album, EP, digital single, etc.) or live albums comprised of either shows from the old days or the reunion.  

In other worlds, we simply want our favorite band, to act like they are actually a band.  And maybe communicating why that isn't possible apparently, may at least be a good start - if we can't have any of the above stated things.

Well... i dont have Fernando email, but if he can read this:

- Show some record/mix video or let us see something tangible to talk about the new album. Its painfull to read/make more than 150 page of nothing. Its really easy to make.

- Some of us want to buy music and Blurays. Make it happen! 

- We want exclusive material to buy. What about money goals contributed by fans to get that exclusive stuff? Like documentaries or completes shows from Canters Vault for ex?

Ty.

I think if i remember the bands attitude during 87 to 93 they seemed to be fan friendly. Especially with onstage axl rants just before the illusions came out with dissing Geffen for taking ages on releasing the albums. Then telling fans onstage during the illusion period of mixing up the setlist.

Then it seems sometime during the nuguns phase it was "we as a band owe the fans nothing. A fan pays for a ticket we play". nothing more nothing less. Somewhere axl no longer cared about what fans thought about gnr. I dont know why. If i read somd of the online chats axl had with fans, he had a real cut and dried type response. Maybe it was to do with the age of the internet, who knows.

One of the reasons could very well be the internet, so called 'information' must have quadrupled including a load of made up stuff etc

What do people think are actually the chances of GnR releasing something? I want to hear from the optimists and the pessimists; I fell into this rabbit hole of GnR'dom in 2017 after going to see them and I know there are people here who know this band infinitely better than I ever will.

30% and that's my optimistic side. I believe Axl has serious intentions to release something, but he somehow always withdrawals when it's time to deliver.

Sadly I have to agree, but really hope I’m wrong!

I'd go with 'very unlikely at any point in the near future'. 

I'd imagine that when Axl passes away the vaults will open and we'll get unreleased stuff at that point. That seems to be the case with most deceased musical acts.

Dear Fernando

Here’s the first idea for you.

Upload a new pro-shot Use Your Illusion show every week on the official YouTube channel.

 

that would be a good start.

Yes either that or let us buy Them!
