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 😂.

Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

Might as well bust this out again:

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....."

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 😂😂😂

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! 😂

Just let Fernando know. I think we're supposed to TikTok ideas to Fernando? :lol:

Man, a remix of UYI without the awful drum tone and hall reverb / bass chorus / weird ambience / weird Axl's voice effects would make my 2021. The whole production made the record age so poorly in comparison to TSI.

Note: I'm not bashing UYI, it's just that the mix doesn't do the songs much justice.

I really think DDM is completely doable based on,

1. Its done early in the set while axls voice is fresh. Maybe third track in.

2. Its slowed down abit. Solos should still be the same speed as the album version.

Don’t get me wrong - I’d love to hear it. There would need to be changes as you say (although they haven’t been known to amend much to help Axls vocals up to this point). A couple of airings would be great just to hear it - doesn’t need to be a regular play.

Hugely underrated song.

I totally agree that the mix is not excellent for all those reasons!

But... I believe it should be left as is. if they release a remix as a bonus then that's cool, but the original mix should remain... obviously with a remaster etc.

Underated absolutely!. Love slashs solos in the song and the breakdown after the solo.

I agree with your two points. Id go even further though, personally. Definitely more Izzy!

As long as they leave all of Axls sexy breathing sounds on tracks like So Fine alone! lol

Ya'll seriously are convincing yourself's that Axl can pull off DON'T DAMN ME now in 2020/2021? LOL he never even attempted it back during the peak of his career .... I know yous heard Dead Horse .... He can't even sing THAT song anymore ... 

Yeah, as much as I love Don't damn me, they really should not try that. :D

This thread :facepalm:

Don’t worry, something tells me that GNR will soon begin to seriously consider thinking about how to possibly start getting ready to conceivably work on getting together to assemble new material for a likely future release in the foreseeable not-so-distant future.
