Agree the lyrics sound very ACDC.
The whole thing is kinda bizarre given the lack of new anything from Axl, then this. But at the same time it's probably just a fun thing to do on the side for him so why not. Just hope the rumours of Slash et al working on existing Chinese material is accurate, as I would take that in a heart beat over nothing. The complete lack of back catalogue from these guys is the biggest travesty over the years. Obviously completely new stuff with them working together creatively would be the ultimate but if it's reheated Chinese leftovers, I'll take that for now.
Of course what would have been funnier is if the cartoon wasn't Looney Tunes but rather Mickey Mouse Although to be fair his vocals sounded fine to me.

I mean physically...he looks sick to me. His face appears to be falling off.
^ Serious question, does Trump get spray tans or take Melanotan so he can look that orange? His face seems to be getting worse from the footage/pics I see, he's almost become a caricature of himself.

I waited until I could steal Solo for free online, no way the Mouse was getting more of my money after that turd TLJ. I was expecting the worse but it was actually ok for a bit of light fun. Nothing ground breaking, but still watchable.
I had to let go of the stupidity of Lando being pansexual and a few other obvious SJW themes, but it wasn't quite as bad as the early indicators were suggesting it could be.
I still hold out hope for the trilogy from the GOT writers if that gets the go ahead. Although it would require Disney to give them some autonomy and allow them to make it a bit less family friendly and grittier.
Looks like another 3 years of garbage, they've just extended Kathleen Kennedy's contract for another 3 years.
I also laugh how recently Bob Iger had used the "star wars fatigue" line as to why the box office was down etc. BS, it's the quality of the films obviously. You could make 2-3 a year and people would still go and see them if they were good, but they're not, it's as simple as that!

As I said I'm not even sure where they are, I haven't dug a heap of my old stuff out in years.
The whole hideously expensive AFD boxset has made me start wishing I had a complete chronicled copy of every song out there - just like your list.
FWIW I did share the Q Sound and other Ruff stuff years ago tho

I think that sounds like a pretty well educated summary based on what's available out there.
FWIW that Coma mix still didn't have over half of the vocals done by the date on that DAT 2nd November 1990. There were vocals completely missing and other parts with Axl saying:
"see and this will all be special effects shit"
Or another line
"when all I needed was clarity and somebody else to write some fucking words to this god dam song"
(at least I think that's what he said, I haven't listened to this in years and don't even know where the DAT rips are now, somewhere in the house lol).
So for example with this song most of the music was done by this date but the vocals were still quite a way from being finished. Still fits with your timeline though, the bulk of the recording probably in mid to late 1990 and then final bits done by early 1991, then just mixing and little tweaks happening after that.
I would call Coma a Demo tho whilst stuff like Estranged were like the DAT's suggest "Rough Mixes" of close to the finished song.
