Yeah you would have, I’m pretty sure we’re on about the same one, I just threw in my experience as it was slightly different to “did you play on Chinese stuff?” where he’d be allowed to shoot it down where as I was sort of angling for a positive reply.

You would think with him being out of the band for so long, he would have replied with info.

Has Pitman ever spoken about his time in the band? I’m sure he would be a goldmine of info!

I liked Ashbas version, which came as a surprise to me. It somehow reminded me of a 'still life, character study, indie film' and I dig those types of films. It made me feel like I feel when Im immersed in that type of a film. Dreamy and cathartic, maybe.

Or I guess, to a lesser extent it reminds me of those trailers for action films that has really quiet and sparse music to contrast the flashes of action and explosions in the trailer.

In both cases, I dig that type of sound design. So it kinda worked for me.

You can deny it all you like, but it was Guns N' Roses. Just because you didn't like the lineup at the time, doesn't mean it was a cover band. One could say the current lineup is a cover band because Izzy is not in it. One could argue the AFD or UYI lineups were a cover band too, because Tracii Guns was not in the band then, and his name is in the name of the band.

I dislike the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy compared to the 6 other films in the saga, but it's Star Wars, and will always be, regardless of my feelings towards it. 

Nope. And as much as I like most of CD and some of the leaks like Perhaps and Hardschool, that ain't GNR either. That's an Axl & friends project. You can argue all you want about what the title says, or how Axl views it, but there's a reason why the vast majority of fans feel the same. :shrugs:

We’ve had nothing but silence since his dismissal when it comes to Guns apart from his lawsuit against Axl for money that was due to him.

Pitman was a big part of Chinese and is all over the record. He contributed a great deal, but when he said, back in 2012 or so, that GN’R didn’t need to release a record, that soured him for me, as he was sat there with his arm around the interviewer. Fast forward 4 years and he’s calling it a cash grab/nostalgia act etc 😂😂😂

Gosh you are all clinging to small bits and pieces of nothing at all concrete.  There is not going to ba an album of new musicreadon this forum to 2014 and you will find the same conversations an, guesses and nothing appeared.  I wish they would just come out and say there is no album but I suppose this could lose them some fans.

I've been around a lot longer than that and you're probably right, but to be fair, the situation now is a lot different than 2014. There's a hell of a lot more money in an album with Slash and Duff than a followup to Chinese Democracy by the (mostly) same band.

It’s one of their best and the fact that Metallica wrote those songs in their mid 50’s is incredible. If GNR could release an album with the same quality I would be thrilled. 

Yeah, and any new GNR album with Axl, Slash and Duff would go straight to number 1. I do hope the band is doing something with all this down time. There's no excuse not to do new music unless you just don't want to. So I'm hoping some new music does come out of this horrible year from GNR>

Most fans probably think Slash plays on Chinese Democracy.

I've tried reaching Pitman over Instagram but have not had success. I have to believe he has a lot of info, in addition to music. Maybe he can take a page out of Tom Zutaut's book and make some of his money back with GN'R material in his possession. Haha

I wonder if he signed some of gagging order when he got his money?

Oh yeah - he will have LOADS of info and probably music too....
 

@Gambit83 - have you tried to get Pitman on the show at all?

Not really too much of a revelation- Duff is obviously working on some solo stuff, same as Slash. 

Of course we could say 'oh it could be GNR'....but that would be wishful thinking.

What would a whiteboard at Duffs studio say if it were for Guns, anyways?

"Record bass parts"

"Record BG vocals"

?

But for solo work, there'd be plenty of info to cover a large whiteboard.

Someone reckoned (and it looked legit on the screen grab) one of the things written was “Don’t Damn....”. It could be related to the UYI boxset I guess?

Cant be to practice for playing live as it would kill Axl trying to sing that 😂.

That rings a bell - something like ‘they don’t need a new album In order to tour‘?

If he was still in the band I think he’d even be struggling to say that now!

Oh, thanks. I must have missed that part of the discussion.

Axl singing DDM last we heard him - Sounding like a junk yard dogging attacking a poodle :lol:

But on a serious note, I know Duff has expressed regret for how often he used the chorus effects pedal on his parts on UYI. So possibly if he were working on UYI boxset it could be re-recording his parts without the chorus effect? I dunno. Guns loves re-recording bass parts, just ask Tommy.

Would be quite the play for Guns, the do a top to bottom remix and remaster - even with re-recorded parts in some cases - of UYI. Because the hardcore fan base desires it, generally speaking. Id obviously prefer a new album, but I could be excited about an overhauled UYI for at least a year. Like, maybe even as excited as I would be about a Frank album.

Yeah - they have all been quite vocal over their regrets regarding production so it’s not impossible I guess.

I want it all mate - reissues, live release, new album....everything! 😂
