Would GNR add a Van Halen song to the set, once they are back on the road?


Recommended Posts

Some of the members have played VH, in Velvet Revolver, for the Van Halen ROF induction. They played Aint talkin' Bout Love & Runaround.  They were not well received, I think mostly due to Weiland.  Do you think they would add a song since they have a history of doing this? If so , what song?

I mean yea why not, like GN'R doesn't have enough covers in the setlist. I would say an ideal setlist should look like this: WTTJ LALD Nice Boys Attitude The Seeker

I appreciate EVH as much as everyone else but not everyone who passes away needs to be covered by GN'R.  

Please no more covers.  New songs or cut the set. I have no interest in hearing any more covers 

I really dislike what Slash did with Van Halen's original solo in Michael Jackson's Beat It, so I hope not.

I do miss Slash's tone from that era (and from the Illusions and Snakepit).

Don't forget Slash's 18 minute Rocket Queen solo.

Me too. I'm not a guitarist so I don't understand why it has changed, but that 90's sound was always unmistakably Slash... just perfect, and it's missing now. Is it kit (amps, pedals etc), or his fingers / playing?

Also, I don't want to gnrs piss poor version of Ain't talkin' bout love! If they could donate great off the cuff version then ok, but it would need to be a one and done affair, unlike BHS, Witchita etc.

Yes, it seems as he has lost his "magic", and now he is centered in playing fast. I don't find any feeling on Slash nowdays.

It wasn't well received due to the drama that was surrounding Van Halen at that time. People wanted to see VH perform their own song, whether it was Sammy or Roth singing. It really had nothing to do with Velvet Revolver.

Seemingly there's no way we'll hear Slash tapping anything so he never will play solos like Beat It note for note. Slash won't be the problem if the band decides to cover a song. There are weaker spots in GNR right now...guess who?

Maybe for the VR cover it would've been better if Dave had done the lead parts (he had the guitar after all). I would be down to see GnR try a cover and it would be cool to see Slash and the others do their own spin on it. Maybe Unchained or something like that.

If they do, i hope they are more prepared this time. That VR RnR HOF performance lmao. Why Slash? Why would you play Ain't Talking About Love like that? Just Why?

Probably the easiest VH song, and the most iconic to me. So simple, so good.

But i think Axl would do a great job in that song, it's not a hard song to sing, you just need attitude, very similar to some AFD songs in that way.

Axl can't sing his own music anymore. I'd hate to hear another cover at this point.
