It was Fernados retarded explanation  for why an album or, even more lamely, a YouTube upload couldn’t possibly come out.

Donald Trump? 

I think he means Bon Jovi.

More on topic: at this point the band should just pull a Billy Joel and publicly admit that they’re just a nostalgia act now and that new music is never coming.

I never understand this argument?  It sounds like AC/DC music, so it sounds awesome to me.  No one wants/expects these HUGE bands to do something different.  Compared to new GNR music, which has no sound.  Fans want music that sounds like their favorite band.  

Well, personally I prefer my bands/musicians to develop their sound somewhat over the years, otherwise I feel like I'm stuck in groundhog day..... but each to their own.  I think a lot of people feel like me. 

A lot of people aren't keen on change though. Hence nostalgia being so popular.

Funnily enough - I have an Iron Man 2 / AC/DC hardback book which has a CD of AC/DC songs. Not a Greatest Hits but a compilation of sorts. Which is still pretty rare for them to do.

The inclusion of ACDC on the Iron Man 2 soundtrack was a genius marketing move. Managed to get their music into a totally new generation of fans. Obviously they didn't know how big Marvel films would get but even so, smart licensing of their catalogue is something GNR need to learn.

 GNR really need to either get their songs attached to a successful film/Netflix series or they need to produce a 'The Dirt' style biopic. 

Neither of which they will do.

Agreed. ACDC's charm is their simplicity.

Band's should take what their fans want to hear into account, at least somewhat. Anyone can make music no one wants to hear.

Depends on the band. There's a couple of bands for which it just works to always sound the same. Motörhead, Ramones, AC/DC for example. GnR was never one of those bands.

I mentioned this on another thread. I’d accept It if that’s what they wanted to do - at least a lot of the bad feeling which just grows and grows due to the implication they are working on stuff would go away.

FWIW - they would be utterly wrong if they think for whatever reason their new stuff isn’t worth releasing. Just the Village Leaks alone proves the quality is there - and that’s not even factoring in stuff that was worked on before the reunion.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons GNR stand head and shoulders above those other bands for me. Their development. Which is one of the reasons I find it so utterly fucking frustrating that they won't continue that and continually sell themselves short. They were built on progression and development, yet seem to have totally hit the skids with it. I'd love them to release an album that totally alienated all the bores that want a repeat of the 1980s or AFD. That to me would be fucking brilliant. I've always admired artists who have done that in their careers. 

I like all those bands listed.....but I'm happy with one or two of their albums (or a Greatest Hits) because their style is so limited. So yeah, I guess it does depend on the band, but it also depends on the listener. I'm really not going to bother buying all the albums from a band whose sound never changes or grows. 

You know, good luck to AC/DC, but a new album which sounds indistinguishable to albums they made 20 or so years ago really isn't going to do it for me! I like a bit of change and progress to my art in general otherwise I just find it boring.

Absolutely agree. I'd even advocate for a release of Eye On You, just to really shut people up. Something totally out there and unacceptable to many people......which is EXACTLY what they always were.

But Guns never really took the challenge in the first place when you think about it. How many albums have Motörhead or ACDC or Springsteen released? Of course you get more same sounding stuff the more you put out.

Well......yeah, that's a good point! Can't really argue with that one. If they'd released more, then perhaps I wouldn't regard them so well? Who knows. 

It's a bit like the Cobain/Lennon/Hendrix thing - easy to think of them as unassailable musical icons,.....but if they'd got older and gone on to make shitty or dull music that repeated their past, people would probably have viewed them totally differently.

If you have a huge catalogue nostalgia is ok.....not the case with GNR

also, why believe they worked on stuff before the reunion? I’m not buying it

Quantity has nothing to do with it imo.

Despite having only a handful of albums, there was enough hits and fan favorites there full up a full set and keep the casuals happy up until this past year.

Its only now that we are starting to see the casuals getting fed up with the same old shit. Hopefully that means the band will finally listen (doubt it, though).

Me too

This may end up being their last album ever. I agree though that GnR has really dropped the ball here though. Even just one song with a release date for more would've been a big deal.

100% agree - with almost minimum effort they could have really caused a big wave of publicity......total waste of an opportunity that COVID presented itself with. 🙄

Subsequent releases don't take away from past ones. Nobody is going to question "Exile on Main St." because of "Dirty Work"

I agree. It's like when people say remakes or sequels of films ruin the originals.

Exactly. Axl needs to get out of his own head and just release some fucking music.

Man a "The Dirt" style GnR biopic would be the coolest music movie ever ... It's unfortunate something like that will never be created ... 

I agree. But wonder if tgey would shave the timr period of Axls DV incidents against erin and stephanie and the courtcase.

If they were to write a book dirt style the 94 to 96 period is what i want to read the most. Also the recording of the illusions albums would be great.

The main focus would be "live era" (87-93), then the new chapter would be the following years up to the CD release; then there would be some "meh" years, plus the final chapter, "a new hope", for 2016.

It would be a great way to relaunch them to a new generation on a wide scale.

However Slash is on record as opposing the idea (because this band seems to literally hate good publicity).

Whatever happened to that planned biopic for GNR announced years ago?

For movie comedy though it would be the 2015-2020 period 😃

Actually i want to include the ashba era, just to show how abysmal GNR was. Include RIR 2011 with the raincoat and bridge school for more comedy value.
