Now that the old band is more or less together again, which they've shown to the entire world through thorough touring, the last thing they should do is releasing anything associated with the CD era. CD boxset could/should have been out around 2013/14, but now it's not the time. People - me among them - want new music with Slash, obviously. Sure, I'd love to hear CD II or whatever some day, but logically, this would be a stupid move in the present era. 

I agree

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....."

I'd pay $1000 for a super deluxe Chinese Democracy release. 3+ CDs worth of material, including the remix CD, CD2 and CD3 songs, both complete and incomplete, I'd eat it all up for $1,000 easy. A little red hand or grenade flash drive full of tracks.

Despite the fact I'd love to hear this.....$1000 for 3cds worth of material and some tat?!  Come on! 3 discs of Chinese era stuff at a $40 tag, ok!

Look at what other bands offer and what they charge for it!

As a guess maybe the band have no interest in releasing the CD songs as is, because it would be easy to use those songs as a basis for new material. Will be interesting if they use what we heard as part of the village leaks.

I would pay $1000 for something ANYTHING!!  But after years of nothing, well its not looking good...

I’d pay $1000 for a new album of brand new songs, on vinyl, if that vinyl were limited to only 1000 total released. There that’s my offer - take my money Axl!

I realize it would be unusual, but I'd pay as much as $2,000 for something like that.

I will never understand the vinyl fetish.

Nostalgia, and my understanding is vinyl offers the best sound quality experience on proper equipment.

I don't even have a vinyl player, but have collected a few over the years, it is cool having the big artwork, etc. 

I like cassettes for a practical reason, my 1999 Mercedes-Benz only has a tape player. But, people still enjoy collecting these regardless on if they have a player or not.

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

A future lenght movie would be way to short to capture all the drama. It is easily a 3 season 10 hour long episodes series

I sort of feel the same. I get it, and it's a format I do play at home, but personally I'd always prefer CD over vinyl. Vinyl records I've had a while have degraded, as they do with every play, and I want my music to last as long as possible. I also think that CD sound quality is far better (but I understand that will open up a whole can of worms!) 

Vinyl has become a fashion accessory at present it seems but I'm sure the fad will pass at some point. i'd love to see the ratio of 'vinyl bought' to 'vinyl played'! I don't see any point in buying music unless i'm going to play the thing!

I used to like the idea of a biopic and/or tv drama, but now I think it would be the worst thing ever. The Queen and Motley Crue biopics made me barf!

Reckless Road would be a good movie. A movie about Creating Appetite For Destruction. From the early days in 1985 (Welcome To The Jungle) until the New Jersey Show in 1988 with Aerosmith. Closing the movie with Paradise City. It needs a film structure like Bohemian Rhapsody.

I thought the structure of Bohemian Rhapsody was atrocious. The fact that they tried to make it look like Mercury’s life revolved entirely around that 1985 Live Aid performance was so fuckin stupid.

Fuck this whole new album situation. So jealous of hardcore AC/DC fans. 

Yep. They don't get to tour it right away but it doesn't matter. The fans and the music matters. When the times is right, they will sell A LOT OF concert tickets.

I love it.. Get a decent system and a good sounding pressing of an album and it really doesn't sound any better.. Sometimes I will take an edible grab a beer and just sit there listening to a whole album front to back the way it was intended. No skipping through songs. Plus you get the packaging which is something bands used to put a lot of thought into.  I got an original copy of LIES a few months ago and it sounded killer!! It was literally a rush listening to it. 

How old are you. Just curious if you grew up in the digital era.

Assuming GN'R has a new album recorded and mixed, how long would it take them from that point to master, and get it distributed if they actually intended on a release? I suppose this is a general question for any album, though GN'R of course never goes with the usual flow of things. Assume all things being equal.
Would it even be possible for them to get an album out before the end of 2020 from this point? I can imagine an online release, but I'd imagine a physical release to take longer for obvious reasons.

You're absolutely right, as far as the masses go but there are definitely GN'R fans that would pay high prices for a CD set of any sort.

Not to be a jerk but speculation at this point is just unwarranted and foolish. The band is a joke and a cash grab. Not even an integral cash grab releasing anything remotely new and exciting. We are the least luckiest fan base in rock.

Bingo - with vinyl you listen to the full thing as skipping isn’t really an option. I love cranking up the vinyl player. Just got a copy of Marilyn Mansons Mechanical Animals and can’t wait to listen to it.....

I don't disagree, just love to talk about something before something more exciting arises to talk about.

Please, someone leak the 2010-ish CD2!

Axl reckons it takes 6 weeks for all of that, so it would be possible, if it was recorded, mixed, and they had already agreed on marketing.
