Yeah I doubt we’ll ever get a Lies reissue cause of OIAM, but i can see TSI, Live Era, and CD (mistakes eliminated) eventually getting vinyl reissues themselves.

Mistakes, plural? I'm aware of the vocal "scrape", but what other mistakes are there?

By the way - great suggestion to make the locked and loaded vinyls commercially available (at the moment the only way I can buy is if I pay $300-400 import duty).

He answered my questions. In short, this is what he said:

-No plans to break up the LNL box or (at the very least) release mystic separately.

-“We worked with what he had to make the best box set possible.”

-The GH reissue was the label’s idea, but the band was really into it.

He didn’t answer why SOYL was added to GH, or why no ChiDem songs were included.

Just saw he responded. 👍

Why does he lie? I mean, it's obvious why he's avoided answering that first question (because there never was anything planned and he was full of shit). But why lie about it in the first place? Nobody believed it anyway.

Because he is a cunt.

I’m not really sure if there’s enough good material from the cd2 tracks to warrant a full album, let alone a double.

If the village leaks are anything to go by, the only songs with “potential” are Hardschool, Atlas, Perhaps, and (assuming these all have lyrics now) Quick Song, Zodiac, Berlin, Curly Shuffle, Soul Monster, Mustache, and Tonto. All of the other ones sound too “pitman-ish,” or too “buckethead-ish,” and so on, if you catch my drift.

Then there’s also The General, which we haven’t heard much of but the little we did hear sounded promising. And then there’s Seven, which we haven’t heard at all yet but I assume it’s done, since people talked about it so much.

So there’s probably just BARELY enough good songs from the cd2 sessions to fill up one disc. So if the band wanted to do a double album, they better be ready to write plenty of extra songs!

You have heard a snippet of the material from the CD sessions, that snippet was unfinished too, so... you can't really be making full judgements on it. There was some clearly good and bad stuff, but there was 'Pitman' songs, well if you remember the first leak of chinese democracy the verses sounded far more experimental than the finished track. They could easily strip off the synth stuff and add some more Slashy riffs to almost any of those demos. Realistically all of those will be retracked though, so I really wouldn't be too attached to anything we heard.

At least there is confirmation there is a live release in the works. Also when asked about the pressures of a new album, he responded:-

There’s no pressure, Axl and the guys are working as you know. All is in great harmony.

As I understand it, he answered your fourth and fifth question together, and included the addition of SOYL in the answer that the GH hits reissue was the label's idea:

4/5. The label’s idea that the band really liked and was happy to make it onto unreleased format.

Although he answered all your questions, I still think he doesn't know what the Pasha Studio demos are :lol:

Hi Fernando! Hope you and your family are doing well during these difficult times. We all know how fans feel about the wait for a new album. That's what we all want. But I would like to know how the band and management feels about it. Do they feel pressured by the fans? Or maybe they feel reassured that what they release in the future will not disappoint the fans?

Haha yeah he probably didn’t know what I meant by Pasha or Hell House. Oh well. I’m still hoping the Hell House stuff is somehow included in a potential UYI box, at the very least (it would fit better there anyways).

Maybe there are ownership/copyright issues with the Hell House demos, though, and they're owned by the West Arkeen estate.

Good point. Oh well :/ hopefully the UYI box (assuming it still happens) will still have some cool stuff on there.

this has me highly suspicious. I have learned that if someone tells you something  ie "im very smart", regardless of if they were asked or not, they are always dumb as shit 

the great harmony part makes me think the guys are having huge creative differences and are unable to come up with any material they can mutually agree on.  

I obviously have nothing to base this on, other than what we learned about what was going on with this same crew in the mid 90s, you know, when they told us everything was great (at that time)

Very good point. One would hope things are different now than they were in 1994-1996, but you never know.

Hi - are you talking about the initial CD vinyl release (which had issues), or the overall release (the only issue I know about is in Scraped)? Where are there skips other than Scraped?

Not trying to argue. Generally interested if I've missed something.

History tells us to be suspicious (totally understand that) however I didn’t take that as a negative to be honest. Maybe I have a too-optimistic view on things....😂.

All the snippets (Slash at Axls house recording, Susans statement Slash confirming at that guitar conference that the original Appetite was used in recordings recently etc) make a me think it’s more positive than negative.

Of course if there was something more concrete to go on officially then this goes away.  Can you imagine the buzz if there was a 10-sec snippet of something new playing on their Twitter?!?! 🤯

The thing is, the question was about a video if I understand it correctly (he did mention Ritz 88), whereas the answer said "a live album", which may mean audio only. I'm not happy about that (especially if they choose anything but 2016).

I decided against pulling the trigger on the things I wanted to ask, but it is incredibly poor on their part if they didn't plan on recording a few shows professionally with the intention of releasing to celebrate and capitalize on the huge success of the Not In This Lifetime Tour. We know of at least 2 that were professionally filmed, but Fernando stated a few years back that the Troubadour was only filmed for personal use only and there were no plans to release it.

I think we can write off this year for new music and sadly the vast majority of next year, as I can't see them releasing something outwith the Christmas market.

I guess we don’t know what the trigger was for the NITL release he has confirmed. It SHOULD be a given that one of the biggest tours in history has a documented release.
