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....."

Even just a few new songs so we can create our own new GNR album would do just fine.

  1. Hardschool 
  2. Atlas Shrugged
  3. Me & My Elvis (with vocals)
  4. Perhaps
  5. Zodiac (with vocals)
  6. State Of Grace
  7. Oklahoma (with vocals)
  8. Eye On You (with even more MacDaddy)
  9. Cuban Skies
  10. The General

 

I suppose you could include the Bumble reworked or 1999/2000 Silkworms, and reworked OMG though mixed odd. Going Down with Axl backing vocals too, but that's a stretch.

Yup. Were the DJ solos from the 2010 sessions (mi Amor etc)?

My assumption is they were done around that time.

They were just things he did in his own studio, like his Better remix.

Everything instrumental sounds different in that Better remix, I'm assuming it was an effort by the band. The vocals are the same take, just edited from the original.

Ahh - they don’t sound out of place and sound pretty good....I had figured it was Frank, Fortus etc Playing on them!

I believe it was. It sounds like it was darn near ready for release as a bonus track. (Or whatever they planned for it)

Maybe they will re-work that version with Slash, using the new intro they play live. That would be cool!

Apologies - I was talking about the DJ solos...I had assumed that Frank/Ron/Fortus were on those two tracks!

Which remix is this? I'm not sure I'm aware of it....but I presume it's leaked? 

A few Better remixes leaked. Better Gone which is a Brain remix using Bumble's acoustic guitar, the full Bumble acoustic version, and the best is DJ Ashba's Better, which is a re-worked darker version with piano, and nearly all other instruments changed. Axl's vocals are re-worked a bit. I like it. Almost as good as the album version, it's great in on it's own really.

DJ Ashba’s version of better has not aged well. It’s like a My Chemical Romance parody.

May I also add I think the best is the Acoustic mix with the Rock Band stems thrown in for bass, drums etc

I'll send it to you later, it leaked in 2013. It's slower and has some piano, the vocals are the same as the album just slowed down.

Nah I'm sure DJ commented around the time it leaked that it was something he'd thrown together pretty quickly in his own studio.

Thanks folks. It's one that had passed me by for some reason! 

I'd still be very intrigued to hear the complete CD remix album. How far along did it get? Commercially it would have been a big old flop I'm sure, but would have been a good accompaniment to a re-release.

So Duff and Susan did a video for Ozzy's Boneyard SiriusXM channel on Instagram and she was giving a tour of his studio. He had a whiteboard with some demo ideas and people were asking about it in the comments so he said "I'm always recording demos and stuff. Don't make anything out of anything, I'm a musician, it's what I do." 

Edit- here's the video.

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 agree. I just thought that what Duff said was interesting about how he's always writing and working on ideas because he's a musician. Slash is the same way but at least those 2 know how to put something together and release it.

In any case I'm waiting for the next SMKC record; hopefully next year.

I'm surprised on how many of you like Ashba's Better. IMO, that was absolutely dreadful. Everything on that version sounds worse, even his guitar tone during the solo (which he didn't bother to play the second part as he used to do in the live performances).

The Vegas blu ray.

That ain't Guns N Roses. That's a horrible representation of a shitty cover band.

 

And it's a live DVD, not an album of original material. Even Axl knew Ashba and Bumblefoot weren't the right fit.
