I'll debunk it right now, on the grounds of having a pair of eyes and a (somewhat) functioning brain. 

We all know it to be garbage but still surprised no-one has decided to run with it and make a story - GNR central or something. 😂

Well I bet there has been a lot of fakes and false rumors but this is the only one that Fernando has bothered to comment about. At leat that I know about.

Unfortunately it will be a load of rubbish and the 25th will pass without anything happening. ☹️

It has never been as quiet and low key around here as it is now (that I can remember). Yeah there is stuff going on in the world but life goes on - and the GNR fan base (specifically the hardcore) are so completely apathetic and disillusioned. There was no need for it either - some good quality Selects with killer performances or even better a Summer 2016 gig streamed on their YouTube channel would have gone a massive way to keeping the fan base engaged.

Most trustworthy manager of lifetime

1)Tells fans that new album out in 6 months---> a year has now passed and nothing

2)Tells fans that there will be a live release before the end of the year-----> Well, this year is almost done. We have had huge covid-vaccine news and stuff but what do you think will happen with this? =)

3) tells fans to get ready ---> well, nothing happened

Hopefully he won't tell us that he'll live forever

what is The Project?

The Project was the beginning of what went on to become VR. It was Izzy, Slash, Matt and Duff. They said they wrote the 'best Guns album' together. But Izzy walked as soon as lead singers came into the picture. He wanted himself and Duff to be the singers.

Weiland was presented the Projects tapes and said that he found them too "classic" and urged the band to be more modern."

They did use at least one riff from the Izzy jams, though. We can tell because the same riff is on the VR track Do It For The Kids and the Izzy Stradlin track Bomb.

Perhaps there are more riffs and stuff from The Project on either Contraband and Izzy's Like a Dog album.

Fernando's community outreach is the music equivalent of dangling a carrot on a stick in front of a donkey.

I'll believe Nando would be able to suck his own dick before the year ends or any new music is out for that matter.

So, new tour in Oceania announced today.......... Does that mean the album is on the way..... Or, they need more money?      Anyway, isn't Smkc recording album next year? 

There’s nothing in this tour promo that suggests a new GN’R album is coming. The tour promoter has been quoted saying it’s an all new show, but with the old classic songs.

I still think we’ll see the next SMKC album before a new Guns album.

You know i would laugh if SMKC release a new album early next year and tour it in oz before GNRs dates.

Yah know, when I think about this hardcore fanbase and all the nutcases that have been part of it for decades now (nobody on this site, but I think you guys know the people I’m talking about), I honestly can’t say I blame the band for not wanting to do new music or anything else that only us hardcores really care about anyways.

The change in tone on social media comments suggests it’s not just us hardcore fans who want new material. I’d be surprised if the apparent lack of new material was in part due to ‘the crazies’. The fact they were allowed to properly fuck up loads of great stuff for all fans is just crazy. Total weirdos.

Fernando said on Reddit a while back that GNRs legacy is safe/secure.....but is it?

As time moves on and GNR cease to be people will look back to them in the same way we probably looked back at the Zeppelins, Sabbaths or whatever. These bands had sizeable discographies and a multitude of live releases meaning we could really see ‘what all he fuss was about’. And because of all the material you COULD say - actually, Zeppelin were a force live etc.

As it stands if anyone looks back at GNRs discography they will see the Tokyo DVDs and AFDemocracy.....AFD is ok at best with some decent songs and pretty good production and Tokyo a is a few steps better performance-wise but has a poor production value and a weird lack of atmosphere. People would watch these and go - what’s the fuss about. 🤷🏼‍♂️ So when we know there is live material in the vaults from throughout the history of the band which would properly show future generations what GNR were all about....that’s not protecting the legacy at all if it’s cooped up to rot. And - the fact you cannot purchase LIES, UYI 1/2, Spaghetti or CD (never mind Live Era) from the official website is staggering. I don’t think there is even a discography section?!?!

Case in point:- 

 

The average punter wont know of the soundboard leaks and/or the fantastic work undertaken by key players in the fan community to:-

A) give the fans THE killer content they deserve from a live performance perspective and

B) preserve the legacy which doesn’t appear to be happening officially

I genuinely don’t think TB are to blame for everything but I just can’t understand why it has been allowed to get to this stage. And why UMG/Geffen and all key parties are not pushing to release existing recordings is just baffling - there is literally NO downside to releasing recordings you already have in any number of configurations - download/streaming costs almost nothing and brings in cash, boosts discography and shows everyone what the band was/is about. For ‘big gigs’ or whatever you can have physical releases too.

I’m just a random on a fans website waffling away but the above points and many more of the observations made on here by fellow posters make so much sense it’s just utterly bewildering. I’d love to be able to ask Fernando or even the band what the thoughts are behind the bizarre approach.

Time to kill so figured I’d vent......must be a new record for size of post. 😂

We are all fans (so by definition ‘fanatics’) and it’s gutting that we see our favourite band being handled so amateur like.

Don't forget all the YouTube videos that aren't there anymore, so you can't watch that live content.

Anyone heard from Malibu Monica? She OK? 

She's doing good! 

From what I gathered from talking with her, I believe a friend played her some songs from the Village leaks. I don't know for sure, and didn't hear back when I asked for clarification.
