Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

Might as well bust this out again:

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

I also think when Axl releases music, he's doing it for himself, not for anyone else.

And that right there tells us everything we need to know about why there isn't new music yet.

Showing up for soundcheck is not only a matter of not getting rusty and keeping your voice trained but also a matter of respect towards the rest of the band 

When you play a tour with 150 gigs and you show up for 10 soundchecks you don't seem to give that many fucks

 

It's disrespectful from Axl towards the other band members and the crew who work their asses off to create a good show and then Axl shows up, unprepared, probably not being familiar with the sound of the venue because he didn't attend the soundcheck and he phones it in

I agree

I was reading the thread when something was deleted?

 

When Axl is ready to release some music he will.  I think the grief he gets from fans just fuels the pressure and causes frustration all round.  Just a throught.

Bands do, singers don't.

You have no idea what you're on about. Have you played with a band before? Because almost EVERY singer I've worked with needs to change keys on the spot, needs to be constantly reminded of the lyrics, has to be queued to come in... a lot of these singers have degrees in singing. Singers need the rehearsal as much and more than the rest of the band. Guitar players, bass, keys, drums do the work at home (the pros) most singers turn up with a lyric sheet, no other equipment and can barely figure out the basic operation of a mic stand. There are some exceptions who know there shit inside and out (and always deliver), but from the 100s of musicians I've played with or talked with, this is a common subject that we all laugh about!

You are too much🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

*edit - I just saw that this post was derailed with this topic... so we'll leave it here😉*

On topic. We'll have to wait and see what comes from all of this, but I'd love  a new song written by Slash with Axl on vocals! However I'm not that concerned about it, looking forward to it of course! But, the days where this was the biggest concern in my life are well and truly gone🤣🤣

I totally resent that, I've been figuring out the mic stand and I'm pretty sure I almost have it.😄

Fernando said in the discord chat back in May that there had been no discussions about a NITL blu-ray and the only plan was the (short-lived, eventually) "selects" on youtube. Now he's saying a NITL blu-ray/dvd is on the way. So it seems plans changed along the way.

I'm not sure if I believe Fernando's explanation on why Axl trademarked his name. It probably will result to nothing significant, but I'm not buying that Axl just randomly decided to do it now.

As for Slash working on SMKC, it's not a problem per se. He's forced not to tour for more than a year, so this would inevitably happen regardless of whether there's been work going on with GnR, since he has a lot of time to do both and wants to keep himself busy. The problem is which one comes out first, and that will depend on how much progress will have been made in regards to GnR (because there's no question about SMKC - the material will be all written and ready) when the circumstances allow for actual recording in a professional studio - in other words, on whether they'll have all the material together and Axl will be ready to record and release.

What does white privilege have to do with anything related to this subject?:facepalm: I'm guessing the 16 stands for your actual age ;)

All mygnr singers, I am doing a free public service masterclass on mic stand operations! PM me :D 

Watch the GNR show from the RDS Dublin '06 for further proof (during the end section of Jungle), Axl can't even tighten a mic stand "Somebody fix that" after he tries and fails to fix Dizzys mic, he needs my masterclass too! Fernando PM me!

I probably said this earlier, but it's not that fuckin' serious. Just release some new music. Clearly Duff and Slash still enjoy making new music. It doesn't have to be the greatest record ever. It doesn't even have to be the best record of 2020. Just show us you're still an actual band and not just a touring act content to only sing songs from 1987 and sell us toy trains.

And that there is the big problem mate. Axl's low self-esteem seems to need to release the greatest record ever, each time. He puts all this unneccesary pressure on himself when fans like us would be thrilled to just hear his voice on a new album. Obviously if it was a Metallica Lulu moment it wouldn't be well recieved but Im sure anything he creates and releases would be at the very least really good.

I don't think Axl is the only successful musician in the world that releases music for himself. It's not likely, so maybe it's not that simple. Axl needs others to come up with ideas. He is capable of coming up with good shit himself imo, but for the most part, like Slash said more than once in the past: he considers himself and Duff to be the bricklayers so I believe it's a combination of different things.

I'm glad someone took care of those comments on the last few pages :)

As I said before, SMKC recording new album doesn't necessarly mean that Slash isn't working on GNR stuff. We all know though that it's not up to him if it ever gets recorded and released.

Agreed - we all know he doesn’t like being idle so stands to reason he would be doing work for both.

Lulu....the worst thing metalluca did. I didnt get why lou reed of all people they would colaborate with them, and wondered why they didnt do something with lemmy kilmister instead as the band looked up to motorhead.

Maybe he doesn't believe in the consistency of his voice anymore.  I know that most of us don't either.  I think he needs to change his sound and sing with his regular mid-range (is that the term?) voice like the verses of Don't Cry and Patience. Axl is nearly 60.  The ferocity portrayed in his high, scratchy voice doesn't seem that legitimate anymore.  I'm not saying that Axl should go totally soft rock but if he took it easier on his voice, I think he could record some nice songs on top of the music created by this talented version of the band.

As always, you're right. It's GNR downtime officially. Slash is not needed for GNR at the moment. Don't know if he already recorded his parts, or if it's just a matter that Axl doesn't want to create something entirely from the scratch with him and Duff. So yeah, Slash will do something with this time, so why not write and record for SMKC? They don't have to release it right now or before GNR, mind you, albeit they probably will. But they are also limited on touring anyways.

Also, it wasn't because Slash didn't have time to record and write stuff from GNR. He had 4 years. He probably would have 3 GNR records done by now lol.

I believe that Axl can record with any voice he chooses while in studio. The tricky part is being able to replicate during live shows. Except for ACDC for some reason...

The reason is that he wasn't in charge and free to sing however he wanted like with Guns N' Roses. Angus had him on a tight leash from beginning to end.
