These anti-Frank people gotta stamp in their minds that whatever he is playing is what Slash and Duff want to hear from him. They're just judging him because because he is not Steven or Matt. Brain altered Mr Brownstone, November Rain and many other songs too and I don't see people hating on him like they are on Frank. The tour has been going on for four years and if Slash and Duff hear anything they don't like it could've been fixed by now. New music is the topic so I think again Frank will play however/whatever Slash and Duff want him to play and the same people will hate it because it's Frank. But if it's the same sound and had Steven or Matt played it automatically it's a complete 180 for these people. 

I can accept frank for this lineup. If i had achoice between frank and brent fitz from SMKC as a possibility in gnr, id choose fitzy in a heartbeat. Why?

brent has swing, energy, and good "feel" of a song and the chops. You have these qualities or you dont.  I like watching him.Fitzy, adler, and freese are almost the same type of drummers. They have these qualities.

Frank has a tendancy for overuse of doing fills and hitting the crash cymbals in parts of songs that arnt needed. Estranged a good example.

Adler and sorum were good for the albums gnr did. Adler suited AFD to a t.

Sorums professional type of playing suited the illusions. 

We will see what frank brings to the next record.

Yeah.... I'm worried about that too. The only "defense" anyone could possibly have for the band if nothing happens is "....but 'all new show' didn't apply to this show!"

I love Brent and Todd. For total biased reasons, Brent being from Winnipeg where I'm from, and Todd being a neighbour in the next province over. But Brent has such good feel to his drumming. Like, it's nothing groundbreaking by any means, but his resume is damn impressive and he does exactly what he needs to do in every band he's played with. Plus he's never totally turned his back on Winnipeg like anyone else remotely famous seems to do. He's still here visiting family multiple times a year and does a shit ton of charity work around the city. Him and Todd's band Toque comes here all the time and it's always a sellout or damn close. Can't say enough good things about those guys.

Waiting for a new album doesn't make much sense imho. 

I gave up waiting on Chinese Democracy and tada one day I realized it actually had been released. :lol:

'Sense' and being a big GNR fan are two very, very different cousins. No one that posts here has got any sense really!

New album will be postponed because of the coronavirus. You heard it here first!

Slash will address this in the upcoming interview "World is not in a good situation to release new music right now!"

This would be a great excuse :D

I think it’s beyond obvious by now. If you can pay their fee and put on a show, you can book them. 
 

The focus is maximizing the amount of $ they can make while reunited. All scheduling revolves around this. They make their $ off touring. An album wouldnt make them anything compared to even 1 show of merch sales. 
 

Until promoters aren’t paying their fees, they don’t need to release anything to drum up interest.

Fitzy is probably the best rock drummer out there right now, and a great guy too.

I saw Toque play at a NAMM party a couple weeks ago; they always put on a great show. I always enjoy meeting up with those two and catching up.

100% agree. No need to stop playing shows if promoter are still wanting to book them and if people are buying tickets.

If U.S. dates are announced before word of new music, then I'm pretty confident we can kiss a 2020 album goodbye. 

That is a good point.  If they were going to use a tour to promote their new album or I guess in modern times vice versa - one would think smart business would be hyping up a new album before any tour dates

 

If I was a betting man, I would put my chips "all-in" on no new album this year, just more same ol' touring and money making

I think that'd be a safe bet on pretty much any given year.

Not sure a new album is happening unless it’s announced at this 1 off Miami show. Then there’d be plenty of time to use the album to plug the tour. But it wouldn’t make sense to release an album later this year during or after the shows.

If that announcement is only a tour rollout "North America!!  Get...F'n...Ready!!!!" That will really "F'n" suck.

I would be stoked.  They haven't come my way since Oct 17... Bring it.
