Good point. Maybe he’s starting a label for both himself as well as other artists?

Yes, it looks like it. Probably it's just an idea right now with no concrete plans.

Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

I like the idea of being on my death bed, saying "just refresh that page one more time for me....I'm pretty sure that insider was full of shit, but I want to be totally sure....." 

Might as well bust this out again:

Yeah, I came across the trademarks this morning. These three different "classes" (descriptions) that @Blackstar posted are assigned to both "Axl" and "Axl Rose" (so, I guess 6 separate trademarks in total)? I know the value of trademarks and why companies do them, but I'm not sure why Axl himself would. Guns N' Roses, as its own band/brand makes sense obviously, but I don't really understand why an individual within the band would do it for themselves. 

I love Axl, but the idea of Axl Rose branded clothing is really weird to me, lol. 

Other people use their name as a brand for clothing etc., Slash for example, without trademarking it - let alone for the music they release. It's weird that Axl trademarked his own name.

@rocknroll41 maybe there should be a separate thread for this?

Why are wealthy folk never content with what they have...its almost obscene and cannot make one happy, this constant scrapping around for another million.  One day homo sapiens will change and the world will become a fairer, equitable and kinder place, one can dream.

The change has already been happening, because it's inevitable, and whatever is happening now is not sustainable. The thing is, it doesn't happen over night; nothing of such nature does...

To the best of my knowledge posthumous branded clothing, say Jimi Hendrix, is trademarked? Axl could be just be in the process of updating his will to include where his name will go to? Things like that often get messy, so it would be one way to try and keep everything tidy. I dunno.

Yes, this makes sense. I hadn't thought about it.

The "W.A.R. Tequila" trademark is still active and he hasn't done anything with it. So these new ones don't mean he'll necessarily do something with them.

That's my guess as well, Axel no work!

Remember Stay Of Execution? Axl had that registered too, didn't he.

Yes. He registered for it in October 2014 and it was abandoned in July 2015. IIRC, nothing came of it though.

Oh he abandoned it. Well, it wasn't a bad title, coulda been used for something.

It'd honestly be the most "Axl Rose" thing he could do.

> Spends 2 decades trying to legitimize the new GNR lineups
> Finally reunites with Slash and Duff, tours the world playing the hits and a bunch of CD songs
> Fans desperate for new material featuring Slash and Duff
> "Y'know, this is a good time for me to do a solo record"

:axl:

True! At this point I just hope we get new Axl music of some kind (GnR, Solo, Axl/DC, etc.).

@Blackstar he did say at the China Exchange interview in 2016 that he wished the band would’ve just stuck to forming their own Indy label back in the day, rather than signing to a major label. So you might be right.

Wishful thinking on my part, but it’d be cool if he was planning to buy back the masters to the ChiDem leftovers from UMG so that he could use those for his own solo album instead, while GnR itself just focuses primarily on new music.

In all honesty tho, he’s probably just starting his own clothing label or something, and the music/ other audio/ video parts of the trademark are just him covering all his bases.

Imagine Ashba as his clothing brand consultant.

I don't think he's doing a solo record. He can barely get music out under GnR, why would he do it solo?

Yeah apparently Fernando confirmed on reddit that the new trademarks are “just standard paperwork” or some shit. Nothing more than that.

Nonsense, the cream always rises to the top. Stop with the delusional dreams of utopia.

It's called evolution. You either learn from your mistakes, or you get extinct. Yeah, currently it looks like the latter, but this is a long run.

I just realized something...

When I asked fernando the other day on reddit if this GH vinyl was planned before the pandemic, he confirmed that it was.

That alone makes me doubt even more that a new album was ever planned for this year. Why would they release a new album and GH on vinyl so close together, afterall?

Then again, AFD was reissued just a month or two before ChiDem finally came out. So what do I know?

The only reason I can think they would be released close together is any new material would definitely see the GH get a boost sales wise so they would want GH out there in as many mediums as possible to maximise revenue streams.

I have seen literally nothing that suggests to me a new album was ever planned for this year. 

OK, surprises happen etc, but in the absence of any evidence whatsoever that a release was scheduled, I've got to go with the pragmatism here!
