New Member, First Post! Question... Does there exist a Demo of You Could be Mine with Adler on it Online?  Watched him playing the Drums on Youtube to YCBM. Would love to hear what they

The reference in Kerrang, in 1991: "THE BAND had a rough demo of 'You Could Be Mine’ when they were holed up in Kensington on their first trip to the UK back in the Summer of ’87. Between those f

Thanks True. Love to hear it though. YCBM told the World in 1991 GnR still Kicked Ass. With Arnold!!

Your best chance would be to wait for some kind of re-release of UYI I guess. If they go through with it (like with AFD in 2017), it'll be here next year.

I'm kinda hoping for some pre Sorum demos as well.

Edit: good username tho :lol:

Hopefully the oldest YCBM demo is from the Pre appetite sessions (1986?), I’d imagine it’s a very different song but the main riff would be intact minus Matt’s intro as Matt created that.

I didn't know that, interesting.

Any Illusion Material Pre Matt with Adler on it that is Online is fun to listen to. Makes you think what GnR woud sound like with Adler during the Illusion Era.

I don’t think the album would’ve sounded that different... I don’t think I even realised  that Adler drums on civil war for like the first ten years...

YcBM intro: Matt discusses it in this video towards the end

They played the demo for a Kerrang journalist when they played the Marquee shows. When it was later released, the journalist called it something like "the same hard rocker, with slightly cooler guitars".@Blackstar could probably give more info.

But yea, an AFD-era demo likely exists. Hopefully they include it (and any other demos/live songs with Adler) in the UYIbox.

Ok. 1987, Wonder if they had it during the recording of AFD?

 

YCBM on AFD....That would be Something.

Welcome to the forum

For me, YCBM is such a quintessentially UYI sounding track (production wise) that I have a hard time imagining it with the dryer and less saturated AFD sound.

They definitely had written at least some of ycbm whilst writing afd as some lyrics are in the afd booklet, one of their biography’s (slash,duff or Steven) names a bunch of pre afd songs, pretty sure perfect crime and ycbm were amongst them

I seem to recall one of them saying they wanted YCBM on AFD, but held it back to put another song on it.

On a related side note, Steven has been playing the song live in recent years and it is interesting hearing his take on it. 

That might be the closest we get to being able to imagine how the original Steven version could have been like, taking the UYI we know and imagining his drum parts over that

Somewhere in Slash's book, he says YCBM was written during AFD production and he thought it should've been on that album.

On the contrary, I’d imagine an Appetite-era demo doesn’t exist, since both of the November Rain demos as well as Back Off Bitch were included in the AFD super deluxe. If a demo of YCBM existed from that era, wouldn’t that have made sense to be there also?

....There has to be something on Tape/Record of YCBM Adler era. Song was First Mentioned in 1987. Thats's 3 years before the UYI Recordings. Chicago Sessions maybe? 

If I ever met Axl in person lol, that would be my Question, did they ever Recorded it with Adler and where is it!

We can only hope....

They wrote YCBM in 1987 or earlier, but I think that the song was not intended to be released on AFD from the very beginning. November Rain, Bad Obsession and Back off Bitch were also released later.

There's AFD and Lies demos that didn't make the AFD box, and I don't think the inclusion of Nov Rain or Back Off Bitch means they included all the early UYI stuff. Plus the Nov Rain demos had been floating around forever, and I'm sure they'll include more demos (like Axl's Advance Copy) on a UYI box set.

All the evidence suggests an AFD-era demo exists - Slash's book, the Kerrang article, the lyrics on the AFD sleeve, etc.
