I wonder how the conversation about Brian staying on drums went.

Slash and Duff: Yeah we’re going to take a look at this, record some parts and release it?

Frank: Cool, that means I’ll show up and add some drums too yeah?

Axl: Yeah…here’s the thing…

He probably didn't even know they were releasing a studio version til Axl said it on stage tonight lol

It’s weird that the Silkworms leak from a few years ago has always come up as “Isn’t it Absurd “ , as in the title of the song when it gets played on my iTunes library. There’s a few other leaks that came up on my iTunes library when I played them through that, that had different titles, I might have to go and have a look at them again.

That's true... but that doesn't make it a good song automatically.  It's better than I thought, based on the live recordings but it's still a strange choice for a new single.

I just hope that's not the last song they have released for a long time if you know what I mean.

I totally get your point. 

Just to be clear: I have nothing against Stadium rock and actually liked the last couple of AC/DC albums a lot. 

I just expect something different or controversial from Axl/GN'R. Absurd is both different and controversial.

Riad sounds now like Stairway to heaven to me compared to this. 

Beyond my comprehension that they chose to recycle the worst old song that they had. Surely they must have tens if not hundreds better bits of music hidden in some drawer.

Well, it's better than this or this 

Those were fun! Difference is that those were one off live performances, not a studio recording.

Unlike to the live version this is either just Slash on leads or Fortus imitates his playing creepingly good, which wouldn't be good at all, IMO.

I think this is all Slash, all solos and both rhythm guitars. It's his tone and idiosyncrasies.

Maybe Brain is regarded as still being in the band but not in a live capacity - wasn't that what was inferred when Frank took over full time?

 

Really intrigued as to what the full writing credits are for this.

He’s been backstage at some guns shows, I think even in 2016. And yeah Axl said that before as well.

If I had to guess writing credits it’s probably almost everyone from the NuGuns lineup + Slash, Duff and Melissa. I wouldn’t be surprised if 15 people worked on this

Couldn't it be that the old vocal track was laid over the drum mix and since Axl didn't bother re-recording the song, Brain's drums stayed too?

I don't really see the need to re-record vocals for songs that already have perfect vocal takes. 

I see the argument that if Axl can't perform the vocals live anymore, then they need to re-record them in a way that he can replicate live. But of course that is not the case with Absurd, so I agree, I see no reason why they couldn't just use 20-year old vocal tracks.

Come on, guys, surely you know that if Axl has to record vocals another decade will pass! :D

on a side note:

if this is Brain on the drums, could we agree even more so know, that it was Adler on the "new" SOYL single ?!

Fuck me!

Me, GNR-specialist at Finlands rock-magazine scene (AND A HUGE FAN) patiently wait that maybe...just maybe some day, I get to tell the whole country about EPIC NEW GNR TRACK WITH SLASH IN IT!

And that day finally arrived and the song is f'n SILKWORMS!

Even though they definitely could have chosen better, maybe we’re looking at this choice the wrong way. I mean, it’s not exactly a real single, is it. There’s no video, promotion, nothing, just youtube and Axl saying we can download it. Remember, they’ve already released Shadow of Your Love this way. So I guess that may have been a representation of the old era, and this may be one of the Axl’s NuGuns era. Hopefully, “the new album” will be at least somewhere between.

Dont have time to listen and nitpick. but since Braib is still on drums, do the rhythm guitars sound like the old members? I know the chorus is definitely Slash on rhythm bc hes doing that descending note thing instesd of power chords
