#1 Re: Guns N' Roses » GN’R updates - various tidbits » 2 weeks ago

Tom Petty has passed away and the rights to his archive footage turned into a mess, with legal battles over ANY little small or big thing. Release of a Wildflowers reissue with additional tracks (it was a double album originally) has been notched and there's lawsuits flying even over his house.

Even on this situation there's going to be a stream of an unreleased concert tonight.

If you have any excuse over Fernando and TB's management or Axl and releasing material, I think it's time to see things as they really are.

Firstly, GN’R have finally announced the upcoming tour has been cancelled, due to restrictions and safety concerns with Covid19.

GN’R are releasing a children’s book based off Sweet Child lyrics later this year (an idea their manager Fernando has been working on, and given blessing by the band)

Fernando was also recently chatting on discord for around 2 hours with fans, and seems genuinely interested in improving band/fan relations. He was absolutely grilled by some fans, but he took it all on the chin, and showed a fair bit of humility through it all.

Moving forward, he truly believes that we would have new GN’R music by now if it wasn’t for this pandemic.
There is work going on behind the scenes to upload live videos from the NITL tour to their YouTube channel, and should be up “soon”...

He mentioned they have recordings of every show going back to 2000, and they’re working out what to do with them. They also have a bunch of stuff from the old days, and trying to work out what to do with it all as well, though that’s not the focus at the moment with the current band.

Thanks for the time and effort to put this resume together.
Regarding Fernando, I don't believe his lies anymore.

I've met several  of you (even banned ones, like Bono) and this question was asked:

Anyway, just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for the great times and, yes, I'm a bit nostalgic with this quarantine.

I would say expect no album this year as manufacturing and logistics, especially of promotional materials and appearances, will not be as cost effective as before.
Touring income may also be affected.

I think you meant to say "the only song they'll want to PLAY is the new single"

Holy fuck, this band is lame regarding new music.

If you’re not going to release anything, then continue on being the Eagles or the Beach Boys and own that you’re a jukebox / greatest hits act.

Excuses that music doesn’t sell anymore or some other fucking bullshit is pure smegma.

I know as a fan I sure the fuck won’t be seeing these guys until new music is released.

Tom Petty managed to release a lot of new music.

Maybe Axl doesn’t have his muse anymore, but at least admit it like Billy Joel.

The material this band has that we’ve heard isn’t that bad. Also, lots of shit we haven’t heard that I’m sure is good.

So get some confidence and release music or have the confidence to say we’re just a touring act now.

I love me some Tom Petty and he died touring a new album. Some might say his latest outputs are among his greatest.
But there's so many differences between him and Axl... Could you see Axl fighting the record label because it wants to release GNR more expensive than other artists? Could you picture Axl declaring bankruptcy to terms of a record contract deal to be free?

GNR camp puts a lot of the blame on the record company like it's impossible to be released from a contract. I call that bullshit.

"So get some confidence and release music" this is what the band/Axl/Beta's barn/Team Brazil lacks. And it might make you wonder why...
(hint: perhaps we already heard the best of what's been written/recorded during 1998~2016 and what's left is subpar, the muse is gone and maybe that's why they're thinking of alternatives to "normal" releases)

I've heard early 2019 it was basically Axl material (think 1998 onwards) plus 2 or 3 left overs from the 95-96 sessions that were even mentioned by Fortis before.

Something like 80-20.

No idea how reliable this is but seems to meet sp1at  statement

What I have is just follow ups from interviews really, and getting people to ask questions.

More was mentioned on reworking Axl material because they liked it and because it would be easier to release it, but Slash and Duff have submitted material and older material exists, and Axl was quiet all last year, so who knows what he was doing.

Common sense says it will be reworked old material because of the lack on imprint on the net, and because the band are bumping out dates with confidence. Remember there were up to 90 old tracks.

Yeah, I don't think lack of material is a reason to not release anything. Maybe getting it to a "classic GNR standard" (whatever Axl, Slash and Duff think it is) is the challenge.

They will be some, Fortus already said he was working on an old Slash riff (Hardschool).
I expect a lot of stuff we’ve heard of but re-done somehow. Atlas will be at Catcher levels but maybe with Slash on solo duties.

Fortus didn't mention Hardschool, you're post is misleading. We have no indication nor we have any evidence Hardschool was an old band material.

As far as we know it's a ChinDem era song.

Just something random from 2015, Fortus states some of the new material may have sourced from Slash years ago;

On new material;

“Some of the stuff come(s) from nothing and some of the stuff is stuff that we’ve been working on that were ideas that were already there,” guitarist Richard Fortus revealed in November. “Some of the stuff Slash did — it was the beginning of the seed of the song that’s been around for a while.”

https://www.loudersound.com/features/sl … n-the-ring

I think by this time Slash was already back in the fold and (speculation from my part follows) Axl may have commissioned Fortus to look back into the 94-96 vault (that Axl has described as "the meanest riffs since Aerosmith's The Rocks") and sort what was worth working on.

Allegedly there were almost-finished songs back then, so it may be those + the other song ideas.
