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....."

Someone won the 2000 dollars that the band was giving today 🤣🤣🤣 . In the post hj about the sale of a bandana I said I wanted a new album and not a bandana and the band replied that they had won something and asked to enter a link that doesn't work.

That's not GnR, that's a virus from a fake account, don't click the link whatever you do

You are the last optimist people in this Forum, good for you 👍

Ha ha - yeah...you’d think by now I’d have given up! But I just feel it will happen...and if it doesn’t......life goes on. 👍

I am impressed with the amount of optimism here that still exists regarding new music.  I really dont think there is.

Why shouldn't people be positive? New music exists, there is no reason to assume it won't come out at some time. And long-time fans of the band knows the wait can be extremely long, that the amount of negativity here will skyrocket, that it will be entirely pitch black, but then it will come. History tells us so. It might take one more year, a decade, two decades, but eventually we will hear new music. Just don't let the wait get to you.

I guess Todd saying they are working 'slowly' on the album gels with Susan saying they were working 'fastidiously' on it...

Some folk work at different paces - one man’s slow is another woman’s fastidious....or something 😂

Around 9min, Duff says "If youve got a shitty drummer, youve got a shitty band."

Yep :lol:

I must admit I did laugh at that - purely because of his rep on here. I must admit I don’t think he is as bad as what people say.....although curiously I think he was better pre-reunion?!

Interesting you say this, I'm not a fan of him at all during the reunion but the other day I was listening to 2010-2012 GNR concerts and was shocked about how well he fit on those songs. I'm not sure if its because slash and duff weren't there and their tones are more GNR and original (obviously) and this makes his stick out like a sore thumb now, or if he's doing something different with his drum tunings, mic set ups, or drum sizes/wood construction. There's just something about his drums that were better sounding then than now. 

 

 

UPDATE: he use to use pork pie drums and Zildjian cymbals. He now uses DW Drums and Sabian cymbals. So this could be part of it. not sure if the sizes and or the wood construction changed but the brands certainly did and that contributes to the sound

That’s interesting. I dunno - like you I was listening to stuff pre-reunion 09-12 and he sounded bang on the money. Not just tonally but also ‘locked in’ better?

I agree he sounded tighter pre-reunion. Also, I think he was playing a bit better in 2019 too. Sucks for him that many of us - myself included - had stopped watching every single show by then. But Ive heard him not fuck up Estrangeds snare part and keep tempo for the outro of Witchita. So kudos to him.

LA is in a new lockdown. 

How this will make the album more difficult?

 

Perhaps all the execs will enjoy staying home and not working much. And then they will develop a greater appreciation for Axls approach to life. lol

Just listened. Fuck, what an annoying interview. He asks Duff stuff, but then cuts him off before he answers. He asks him about GN’R at the end, but then cuts Duff off from actually answering, because he’s scared of being allowed to ask him about that... So fucken dumb :facepalm:

I think he cuts him off because he knows he's entered no go territory. Duff seemed a bit awkward too when he asked. Duff always seems incredibly happy at being back with these guys, which makes me appreciate the whole ordeal from their perspective - it must be a trip considering all of the bullshit of the last two decades but they got through it all and toured the world multiple times. Time to get a record out though and hopefully once it does get out, the floodgates will open.

Remember also that this isn't meant to be a formal interview, it's just 2 buddies talking together. It's not structured like a question answer interview.

Ill give him the kudos for not fucking up locomotive. But in terms of skill him and sorum seem miles apart. I just wonder if he feels more pressure on himself because of duff and slash. The previous members of nuguns didnt have the same status in the music community as slash. In nuguns the only person frank had to please was axl, but now there are extra bosses to please , duff and slash.So maybe frank just feels more internal  pressure.

My issues though is that he would do things on the kit that wernt needed or required.  An extra cymbal hit that just isnt required. Just stick to how it sounds on the record.

I must admit that I can’t think of too many changes that I’ve noticed - he does do something odd at the start of Paradise City which sounds weird - misses a snare hit or something.

Im all for Iconic songs being faithful to the source material....although I do get why some folk would want to change it from time to time too - ‘just to freshen it up’.

Re Sorum - I think a lot of people forget how good a drummer he is because of all the attention his ‘ego’ gets.

A lot of those songs aren't even that hard to play, but the feel is important and not everyone can nail that (Steven's swing etc).

I agree. Very solid and tasteful.

Fair enough, but you’d think when you ask someone something, you wouldn’t talk over them when they’re trying to answer you....?
