Ain't Life Grand is damn good but doesn't come close to It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere IMO.

ALG was good musically but Rod Jackson never did it for me on most of the songs.. He sounds good on some though.

Same for me, it isn’t anything to do with being upset because Axl can’t sing how he used to any more. SMKC bore me to death. I’ve bought their albums and been to see them live and it was all very meh. Myles’ voice makes GnR songs sound completely different imo so I can’t even enjoy when they play them either. 

I really really wish I could like them because they release albums and live shows - but I can’t :shrugs:

Why is it hard for some people to understand that some of us just don't like how Myles sounds? I've listened to all the albums, watched a large amount of live videos and then went and watched SMKC live in person and it just doesn't do anything for me. It has nothing to do with jealousy or whatever LMAO

I will always pick Mickey because at the end of the day that's still Axl Rose and there's no one like him while there's a whole lot of artists like Myles Kennedy.

Is there anybody who doesn't understand that? I think it's the opposite. Most people pretend that Myles sucks as a fact and not as opinion.

How could somebody argue about personal taste? I mean, occasionally Axl sounds like dog shit to my ears but I couldn't care less if you prefer him over Myles. 

I think technically Myles is really good and maybe some of the best singers out there but I don't really like his timbre. I accept him on most of the songs and there aren't many moments of greatness to my ears. I like his melodies but mostly love the songs because of Slash.

That being said, I would never act like it's a fact that he sucks or start to discredit people who prefers Axl nowadays.

Totally support your post :)

also, when I found about Alter bridge, it was a slow grower too but now it is in my top 5 bands, they are amazing!

 

Absolutely, they are. I actually somewhat liked Creed back in the day, but much prefer Myles Kennedy to Scott Stapp. And now AB to Creed.

I really dig Mark Tremonti's style and think he and Myles work really well together. That's another other thing I appreciate about Myles is how differently he compliments Tremonti and SLASH. Those two bands are so completely different. But I like them both.

I used to think he sounded cheesy... but now I don't.... at all, haha. Not sure what changed. All the songs have grown on me.

I'll take some overwrought soulful belting over middling sunset strip cliches, if we have to choose :D

If you wanna get Slash to stop noodling we need someone to turn to him and start belting it out into his face like Rod, haha. Then Slash will do the crouch and start foot stomping... you know what I'm talkin about!

Not me, I will watch him "noodle" all day hahaha. Waiting for a good "Select" of his solo.. Hopefully not the Godfather.. They should have released a video of his solo into Sweet Child.. To me they go together.

Funny, I thought that too but I get used to over the years and the music is just fantastic. I still prefer Snakepit 1. But in fact, I had issues with every new singer Slash has worked with on a longer term after leaving Axl and Guns. They all had to grow on me for awhile.

Its harder for Kirk to loose his phone at home on lockdown. I wonder what the excuse will be this time?

"We lost Kirks email for a while, but we found him in time for him to do most of the guitar solos." :lol:

So it sounds like Metallica is coming out with another new album soon, but GnR can't figure out how to release new music!

they're not coming out with a new album soon. they're doing a similar thing to what some of the members in Gn'R are doing according to Susan and Slash. (writing new shit and passing it around)

I wonder how it's going to go down when/if touring resumes and the setlist is the same and no new material is released? 

The emphasis seems to have been on 'oh it all would have been different if it wasn't for this pesky virus'.....but what happens if things DON'T change after concerts resume? 

I can't see it going down well. There's always the argument 'outside of the forum people don't care' but I'd suggest the reverse is true. 

No casual fan will want to see the same show for the 3rd kr 4th time. Especially with the fact there will be a rush of concerts combined with a general lack of disposable income. GNR will be very very far from the priority of a causal fan. 

Basically - have they created a rod for their own back now? How can they deliver anything but a new show and new material without seriously pissing people off now?

This isn't a drill. James Hetfield posted an audio announcement saying "new Metallica music" is coming tomorrow, July 15.

"Hey, this is James from Metallica. Tune in on Wednesday to hear new Metallica music from S&M2," the frontman teased in the segment. Listen below.

While his message doesn't offer much, there is a premiere for a trailer of S&M2 and a live version of the song "All Within My Hands" on Metallica's YouTube channel scheduled for Wednesday, July 15. Lars Ulrich announced in June that the S&M2 shows were going to be released as a box set later this summer, so this is likely the first single being released from the set.

i'm so happy for all Metallica fans,

...and a bit tired of the everlasting comparison

Thing is - GNR and MetallicA are my two favourite bands. They hit their zenith at the same time and are at the same size in terms of ‘entity’ which is why they are compared....and why MetallicA set the standard. I can easily see on one side how much material I can get my hands on, and then look at the other hand....empty! 😂

I think that’s why it’s an often trotted out comparison (which I use a fair bit to be honest). Simply put - if GNR had as much live/bonus material and all the avenues that MetallicA does....we’d all be beyond happy.

We could fast forward at least 2 years still be saying "there's dates coming up next month, they might play something new" and get disappointed that how dare they not play something new or release something when time and time again they've actually been honest. They've never said they're putting anything out or playing new tracks so why do we  get dissaponted when they don't?

 

 

Lemme guess. Theyre seriously thinking about it and everyone's been working hard on what they have.
