The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming


Recommended Posts

Insiders have confirmed that legendary GNR guitarist Carlos Booy has returned to the band and has ghostwritten at least 3 albums worth of material, including lyrics.

There is serious debate within the GNR camp about whether or not to include CD2 as the fourth disc in the upcoming quintuple album. Duff, Richard and Melissa are all in favor of including CD2, while Slash, Frank and Dizzy prefer the original plan of The Spaghetti Incident 2 being the fourth disc. Nobody has heard from Axl in the last 10 months and they are afraid to wake him from his hibernation, so the issue is expected to be resolved approximately 1.5 days before the tour re-starts.

Gary Sunshine is obviously the best Guns banjo plincker plonker EVER, mate! His isolated rhythm tracks on Oh My God are just sublime. I sometimes listen to them backwards with additional chorus and added accompanying sub-bass, and think to myself... this would've destroyed the music industry in 2000.

Gary Sunshine is an impressive player but he just didn't fit with Guns N' Roses. His sound was just plinky plonky technical wankery. That's when the band really became an Axl solo project.

Mate, if you listen to his rhythm guitar tracks with a noise gate on at 5db, compressor at 20ms attack, whilst the orbital paths of Jupiter and Saturn are aligned, then you will realise your viewpoint here is completely and categorically, but yet more importantly factually, incorrect!!! :P

This is only true if you're under the influence of psilocybin in a dimly lit room (<200 lumens) that has been blessed by shamanic ritual within the last 71 minutes. The orbital paths of Jupiter and Saturn are only relevant if you listen to the track outside the Chinese month of April. Otherwise, the noise gate could be at 4.87db and you'd never be able to tell!

My point was that Carlos had soul and feeling in his playing. Gary is a technical virtuoso but his playing is emotionless. And as everyone knows, feelings > facts. Fact.

Have you ever listened to Josh Freese's isolated drum tracks from the village sessions underwater? Whilst sedated and being fed oxygen through your toenails? This is the way ChiDem should be listened to. Axl was sooooo ahead of his time, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

It is truly an album meant to be experienced in a sensory deprivation chamber. He was so ahead of his time that his new age methods weren't appreciated until he reached old age. As Axl would say - better late than never!

People the world over were amazed when UYI was released. If the next album is the last (which in my view is very likely) it would be cool if they smashed it with a triple album release. I wouldn’t even care if a good chunk of it were filler. What a way to go out! Tour until Axl loses his voice altogether and it’s goodnight Vienna! 

So 2018 then?

To be fair, going from the locker leaks version it was a lot heavier before the final mix

Haven't heard that since 2019, maybe I should again. :)

Probably... or at least all the songs with vocals.

Also, was the Appetite '99 re-recording leaked too?

No, but I don't think that really "exists" in the way people think it does. It's probably either mostly instrumental or has scratch vocals. I think it was Dave Abbruzzese who talked about playing AFD in full (this would've been before the CD sessions really started) and Axl only sang half the lines, in half voice. And since Axl referred to AFD '99 as something to basically just get the band used to those songs, I would imagine it wouldn't have "full" vocals. That's just my guess, though.

But there was an instrumental version of WTTJ and KOHD in the locker leaks, as well as an acoustic KOHD with vocals.

Imagine going back in time to the late 1980s and telling the rest of the AFD 5 "yeah in about 10 years you guys won't be in the band and Axl will be trying to rerecord the album that you just put out with a bunch of other guys."

Yeah - there was some tremendous stuff on them. Strip away the multiple versions etc there was some strong stuff (and a few complete duffers on there) regardless of what you may think over who created them/is it GNR.

I can’t remember Knocking on Heavens Door but I recall folk on here absolutely raving about it.

I would love to hear the vocal takes for the RM discs, most of all:

Oklahoma, Me & My Elvis, Tonto, Mustache, Zodiac 13, D Tune and Devious Bastard.

For my taste that was an exciting and fresh musical direction to take. Absolutely love the guitars and drums in the above mentioned demos. To my knowledge, the vocal takes for "Me & My Elvis" and "Devious Bastard" exist in the vault, correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know which other songs were confirmed to have recorded vocals on them, but I hope one day they will all surface - one can still dream!

Yeah I think the 're-recorded AFD was a bit of a myth' and turned out to be one or two songs?

I believe there's an older Axl interview where he says it was most of AFD, with a few songs swapped from UYI. At the time, I believe he wanted it released eventually, but wasn't sure how the world would take it. (Obvious reasons) I'm sure someone here can find it, I normally would, but I should be working right now. :)

Now what I'm really wondering is, will Grace McKagan be a guest vocalist on the new GN'R album?

Its most the album but axl added patience and ycbm and dropped the songs anything goes and think about you. Pretty sure it was on the Axl chats.

I have re-recorded “Appetite”, We recorded all, with the exception of two songs, because we replaced those with “You Could Be Mine” and “Patience” and why do that?  Well, we had to rehearse them anyway to be able to perform them live again, and there were a lot of recording techniques and certain subtle styles and drum fills and things like that that are kind of ’80s signatures that subtly could use a little sprucing up… a little less reverb and a little less double bass and things like that.”

“Josh Freese on drums, Tommy Stinson on bass, Paul Tobias on guitar — you guys know him as Paul Huge, that’s how it’s been written everywhere.  It’s Paul Tobias on guitar, and Robin Finck was on lead guitar, but that… that will stay on some of it. Robin’s guitar will stay on some, but not all. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, exactly, when I would be putting that out. But you know, it has a lot of energy. Learning the old Guns songs and getting them up, you know, putting them on tape, really forced everybody to get them up to the quality that they needed to be at. Once the energy was figured out by the new guys, how much energy was needed to get the songs right, then it really helped in the writing and recording process of the new record.”

I think it was a good idea for the band to record it so they could cover it better, but it seems Axl thought about actually releasing the entire rerecorded Appetite and he did release the SCOM hybrid. You can't do that with certain albums imo, the fans would never accept it.

it made more sense for Live Era, at least it was Axl's own work that got rerecorded but this was too out there for Gn'R with Appetite imo.
