That wasn't the point I was trying to make, but yes, CD happens to be my favorite GN'R record so far.

Fair play to you pal. I highly doubt I'd even like GNR if Chinese Democracy was my intro to the band and the 80s/90s era never existed.

He said he sang Soul Monster on a Christmas Eve.  There is no indication as to what state those vocals are in.  He could have sang parts of it like he sung Quick Song.  He could have sung a chorus whilst the verses were TBC.

The guy on the Steve Hoffman forum didn't hear it.  He asked Axl if there were any songs that didn't make the record and he said '100 Cuban Skies'.

 

Remember Axl says a lot of things.....

Naa, he met him in '03 and Axl took him to his car to play him some tunes. 

Quote

Yeah one called 100 Cuban Skies about cigars... weird right? Showed me about 8 demos in his Ferrari - what a strange night - told me all about Rhiad and the Bedouins and what it was about... we talked about Izzy and his work ethic, Slash, Shannon Hoon... he was by himself and two buddies and I sat at his table at a bar called Sharkeys... the reason he invited us to sit with him is because I had heard The Blues (street of dreams) on a rock in rio 2002 bootleg - I asked about it and he was impressed I knew it

Quote
Hiya,

I was just wondering what 100 Cuban Skies sounded like. Any descriptions. Was it a rocker or a ballad, and did Axl say anything else about it

That one he showed me the intro which was Spanish guitar acoustic vibe...

I don't think it'a a coincidence that despite people thinking there may be hundreds of additional disks, the new single has a vocal taken from the disks we've heard.

And I'm pretty certain that despite people thinking there may be hundreds more songs, the next single after Silkworms will have a vocal taken from the disks we've heard.

That's basically your only Argument and not even a good one, IMO. 

We've heard the leaks from 1999 to 2001. We have NOTHING else past that date but the official album. 

Which means that Axl could have added vocals to Oklahoma in his home studio and we wouldnt even know about it. It's the same Situation with all the other songs from the Village session.

I'd disagree.  I don't think they could use them.

I’d be willing to make a gentleman’s bet that should SOG ever officially come out it uses the same vocal track (the furthest I would be willing to go is to say he may add some additional overdubs similar to SOD or Riad)

To be honest I agree with @Pele here because everything released so far suggests that. Not saying it isn’t possible but track record suggests one-and-done vocal tracks.

I'd say there is more evidence of a lack of completed vocals than there is to suggest a whole load of new songs.

I'd also say we'll be having the same discussion this time next year (without hearing a 'new' song)

I don't think even Rose would release a song where he is mumbling placeholder words among actual lyrics.

I don't think he'll re-record it now either - I just think he'll can the whole thing.

I was unaware GNR Central was still a thing. Haven't seen anything from them in a little while.

Yep they’re still around. Doesn’t seem like Sid clickbaits as bad as he used to. He still gives good concert review rundowns after every show. I can’t say I completely blame him for going the clickbait route, it’s the nature of online news, anything to get people to read and see an ad

The General has vocals, Baz said. 

Scraped wasn't known to fans and was started post 2001, so it shows Axl was recording vocals after the locker disc era. Sane as Better and Sorry. 

I don't understand people still thinking there's nothing else he recorded? Going Down backing vocals, we know he was in the studio at lots of points post 2006 too doing vocal parts. 

Seven sounds fairly finished going from Brains comments about it having a tear your face off chorus. 

Soul Monster axl said he did vox for. 

We have no idea what Axl has finished and worked on, really. 

Yeah, we know that in additiion to the 99 vocal session, there was likely a 07 vocal session where he likely recorded Scraped, Better, Sorry and TIL remix.

Brains comments were useless to be honest, someone asked him about Seven and he said something like 'a suck your balls verse and a tear your face off chorus' - I take that answet to mean 'no idea, go away'.  In a serious, lengthy interview he did, he mentioned that him and a fried created the instrumental General on a keyboard and drum machine and called it that because they were eating general Tso's at the time.

Axl said he did vox for Soul Monster.  They could be at any stage of completion - might have just been a chorus idea.

They just got better at controlling leaks that's all. That's why we think there's not much left. 

Maybe.

Coincidentally they have just released a single with 99 vocal, and if they release a follow up, it's almost certainly going to be another with a 99 vocal

Pele: Axl has recorded no other vocals but those mentioned 

Also Pele: We will probably hear all those songs with the vocals from 1999.

Haha.

Sosso (in about 18 months, when GNR have released their other new singles HardShool, Atlas Shrugged and Oh My God) - "Axl has written/recorded loads of new songs.  I don't know why he keeps releasing ones with 99 vocals."

Same here, the Better leak got me hooked.

Aye! It was that leak that got me interested again too actually! I just wished more of the material had been in that vain. But hey ho it is what it is.

I think it's this (if it ever happens)

  • HardSkool (99 vocal)
  • Atlas Shrugged (99 vocal)
  • Going Down (Duff on Vocal)
  • Silkworms (99 vocal)
  • New Duff Song
  • Knocking on Heavens Door (99 vocal)
  • The General (07 vocal)
  • Perhaps (99 vocal)
  • PRL (instrumental with Thyme)
  • Duff punk song (this ones for Johnny!)
  • Children of the Revolution (07 vocal)
  • Oh My God (99 Vocal)

Bonus tracks - Blood in the Water, Rock the Rock and This I Love remix

Rock the Rock wasn’t even written by the band - wasn’t it written by the Looney Tunes folk? I’m fairly confident there is no chance of that showing on a new release.

The other bonus tracks….you could see that on a CD deluxe but that’s about it.

Why would there be another KOHD?!

I was joking about Rock the Rock.

I wasn't joking about KOHD unfortunately - don't be surprised to see that on the album (if one comes).

Ahh - jokes don’t always translate well online!

If KOHD was an obscure track on an old album then maybe but the fact it was a massive hit and so well known….literally nothing good could come from doing a re-recorded version like that.

I think we'll see it.

Not because it's a good idea, but because it's been recorded.

Is it the village session ones you are referring to? I haven’t heard them in ages but I was sure that was almost like a live recording more than a studio thing?

Or has another studio one been confirmed that I missed?

They'll probably use the village vocal.

It was present on a document from Jan 08 listing the possible tracks for CD2

I wouldnt have any problems with that (if that means that I can go into a store and buy a new album.)

It's happening my friend.

It could have been a possibility with the old band, but I can't see it happening now that Slash and Duff are back involved. Stranger things have happened though, I suppose. I loved the versions of KOHD from 2001/07. Tremendous. That band done a great rendition of it.

For the record, Fernando mentioned on Reddit last year that Axl has continued to write and record music since the release of Chinese, his reputation is in tatters around this place but make of that what you will!
