Oh yeah, I agree! 

I think you have to hear it before you know, but some of those would sound good with that don't cry style. I would definitely miss the kick in 'Estranged' when it goes to "I see the storm is getting closer", maybe it would be better though? 

I think he could still bring it for that part and let it rip. It's the first half of the song that he seems to Mickey for no real reason. The opening lines are the biggest crime! Likewise with Live And Let Die. Why he slips into Mickey for the intro is beyond me. It's not like those are notes out of his natural register.

Riot shields or bust.  

Cant beleive its taken the band 3 months to do this, and Fernando only agreeing to do something like this when told to him directly by the fans. If GNR want to look at being a top tier band this

Man, I listened to some of this in the car today and it sounded pretty awesome.. Axl sounded as good as he is gonna get.. And we would be lucky to hear him sound like that again but I doubt it.  Listening without the video did make things like the fast tempo and Franks unfortunate drumming more apparent but when Axl sounds good, it more than compensates for that.. When he isn't good, the whole thing is pretty abysmal..

And as for someone who has only heard the studio version of Sorry once or twice, I think Slash sounds great on it. That is one of the few CD songs I don't mind.. I am not sure I heard it until the Apollo show and and liked it then.

Now that someone has finally taken these things seriously, it would be awesome if they threw in a "Selects Classic" once in awhile. Something from a re-mastered bootleg, the vault or even remastered television appearance would be cool. 

I really like Slash's take on this Sorry and of course I prefer him over Buckedhead on guitar, but I have to admit that Buckethead's original solo is even greater and it's one of the view wow-moments on CD for me.

Sorry's solo is definetly one of the highlights of CD

Great stuff. At this point I'd pay $1000 to see the band perform like this again :lol: Obviously prefer the album version but I'm still digging Slash's take on the Sorry solo here.

Fernandon't doesn't GIVE US THINGS; he has to ask Axl, and if Axl's down with it, AXL gives us things through this guy (called "the manager"). 

Let's not forget the basics.

Sounds like one of the best versions of the tour, at least voice wise. From 2017 onwards it was dreadful. Sadly Slash’s solo here doesn’t do it for me

Wasn't a fan of that Yesterday's.. To me that is one of the songs that this lineup just can't get right... The solo wasn't very good and neither was Axl.. People say he sounds good there? It sounds like Mickey to me.. I know it shouldn't matter but the chair videos kind of turn me off too.  Axl looks like Humpty Dumpty with his big belly sitting on top of his skinny little legs.. Props to him and the band making it work but I don't care to see it. I would rather see him walking around trying to command the stage.

At this stage, that's the best we'll get vocally on that song. A clean voice with a bit of grit behind it in parts that was non existent in 2017 and beyond.

This, so much this!

It doesn’t get any better than this, guys. I said it the other day, but this is where the bar should be set. An Axl that gives a fuck could pull of performances like this without struggle, if not better. I really dig this version of Yesterdays (The one from 2014 is much better though).

It’s a mix between rasp and clean voice that I can tolerate. 

Slash’s solo though...

This is in this thread about the Sailing cover from 2006.

If @Fernando actually gives us a pro-shot / soundboard of that cover I will forgive all his other poor decisions up til that point. That would be fucking incredible.

Yeah that would be pretty fucking cool if he follows through. That version is so cool, and Axl and the band were really cooking!

Side note... can't Fernando have a place on Nightrain or even (god forbid) here where he grants wishes like this? Reddit is a really strange choice considering the concentration of fans on both the official and unofficial forums.

The 2014 versions were better, but as far as NITL goes, that's as good as Yesterdays is gonna get...

Those final residency performances of Yesterdays were fairly smokin' I'd love to see a pro shot of that! if he's willing to upload that sailing vid, then maybe we'll get other CD era live footage and or UYI live footage... which would be the holy grail!

Pardon my ignorance, but where can I watch the Sailing pro shot? I didn't realize any were officially posted.

There isn't one, there was a phone clip that I think is still on youtube. Fernando is apparently going to try and upload a pro shot if they have it in the archive. 

Side note, we should also ask him for the CDII album that was ready for release in 2014, while he's in a user friendly mood😄

It's one of the best performances from one of the best rock n roll singers... but imagine the reaction if they finally upload a 'from the vault' Selects and it's from 2006. :lol:

The last time I visited Nightrain there was all of four people on it.  It's a ghost town due largely to poor moderation.

Fernando won't come here anymore.   Apparently we committed the ultimate crime of allowing discussion of the leaks a few years ago, something he likened to facilitating the distribution of the leaks themselves.  I told him I don't need his empty and ignorant legal threats and haven't spoken to him since.  This was all in the context of me trying to explain to them that openly defending one of the worst GNR community trolls of all time isn't in their best interest from a PR perspective.  

Keep in mind, people also discussed the leaks on reddit at the time so... yeah...
