Yeah, I was hoping he might re-do them in a more organic, band environment with the current lineup.
As well as of course, newer material
yeah but the newer material is going to be the 94-96 sessions with new added vocals and the old material is going to be the 97-14 stuff probably doesn't make sense but 94-96 sessions were only instrumentals and 97-14 had vocals so it only makes sense to call the more recent stuff old
That's a LOT of assumptions.
While the vault material is obviously in play, Slash and co. are quite capable of busting out some songs quick style and they've had nearly four years to do it.
#4 Re: Guns N' Roses » New Album Thread » 8 days ago
So do the big 3 schedules suggest they could all be in the studio now ? Where are they all at - Richard too ?
If Slash and Duff don't start touring or announcing solo projects, it'll be a sign.
there better be no covers on this new album
Why? They've been known for doing covers since day one. A couple of their biggest hits are covers.
While I can understand the desire for fresh material, they're known for hitting grand slams with covers.
If they want/need to pad out an album with a cover or two, I'm fine with it.
I thought Axl did great with Billy Joel on 'Big Shot'. Unfortunately the recording is low quality.
I'd love a studio version of it.
#5 Re: Guns N' Roses » Rough Mixes Disc 1 » 9 days ago
I’m fascinated by what it was about the songs that Axl recorded vocals for and the ones that (at this point in time) were left instrumental. Like, what was it about Scraped that made him want to record vocals on vs. Quick Song, Soul Monster (later recorded), Prom Violence etc.
Yeah it's a head scratcher all around.
I'd like to see the progress of the material one year later. Stuff like Dub Suplex, Devious Bastard, Realdoll,etc. more than likely tossed aside, Oklahoma, Soul Monster, Sorry, Zodiac,etc. are moved up the A List while something like Scraped is brought to the table.
Don't forget....by 2002 it's all ready....track sequencing, album cover,etc.
The whole thing imploded obviously and more work gets done but some form of CD was locked and loaded by 2002.
I always wanted to know the original tracklist for that 2002 album that never was and after hearing these sessions, I want to know even more.
No way in hell was it that 'leaks plus 3 bonus tracks' we got in 2008.
isn't leave me alone from the 95 izzy sessions? and
NO. Hell no.
I know some think it predates Bucket but he's all over it and the song title is clearly one of his.
i think duff is on oklahoma
I'm not willing to go there....yet....but I also lean towards this song's origins being from the 94-96 period and was built up from there. It may have a very odd combination of players on it.
I think Hardschool also originated from those 94-96 sessions.

I'd be willing to bet this ended up on someone's(Iovine?) desk as a progress report of "The album is 99% done."
Just got through listening to discs 1-3 and that realization hit me.....
Back in the day we would hear comments/updates from various people and they would say.....
"Vocals are 80% done and music 90% done" and fans would speculate on what this really meant.
We're currently listening to the progress of the material they were referencing.
But also because 10 songs. That’s it?
I doubt it's going to be a long album.
I can see CD2. What the hell was the third album?
There isn't one....not beyond sketches anyways. He walked back the trilogy stuff and started referring to it as a double.
Stinson said 22 songs in total were left...and that's obviously including songs such as Silkworms, OMG, and Going Down.
How many of those are A list?

BTW, just to confirm: what has actually leaked? Rough Mixes 1-4 CDs, plus a few odds and ends like Going Down, right?
19 cds very hard to put them in an exact order but every cd from the chinese era locker leaked
Bloody hell. Didn't realise it had all leaked. PM, anyone?
Are you sure you don't have it all and it all just blended together?
I mean...you have the discs that were the last to leak(Rough Mixes).
Here's a pic of the discs....
Eulogy of a Broken Heart was another rumored song title back in 2005/2006. It was supposed to be a November Rain style song.
I'm in that old camp who believed this was a working title for Better.
#8 Re: Guns N' Roses » New Album Thread » 10 days ago
I hope Uncle Axl re-does his vocals...
If we were just getting some type of compilation/box set of the Chinese years, I'd be ok with it as is.
Any other scenario....yes...the vocals need to be redone completely. If not, at least take the Cornell approach with Black Rain where it's a mix of old/new vocals and you can't tell which is which.
He should've done it with CD. Songs like Madagascar and The Blues begged for a fresh vocal take.
I'm curious as to whether the other members will be contributing. Dizzy and Melissa have plenty of song writing credits outside of GN'R (Frank, as far as I can tell from a skim of the ASCAP database, doesn't). On Chinese Democracy, Pitman (whose slot Melissa occupies) and Brain had plenty of writing credits. So why's no-one asked Dizzy, Melissa and Frank whether they're contributing song ideas?
I've said it since day one of the reunion....
Melissa has too much potential to just be squandered as a stunt player.
Her performance of Sorry at that NBA game alone shows what she can bring to the GNR table.
I’m starting to not like the idea of redoing songs that were likely redone 10 ten times already. The spirit of the songs is beaten to death. The new group has had 3 and a half years to write their own songs. Let the Chinese Democracy sessions be done. Either release a box set for the freaks like us or release the songs as an Axl Rose solo album.
While I'm not fond of the idea of removing Bucket or even Finck on any songs he's a creative factor in, if it's the only way to get it out....fine.
Like you, I don't want Slash, Duff, and Melissa just pasted in to already overbloated songs.
Remove ALL the instrumental tracks and have the current lineup record their own unique versions of the tracks. Under this scenario, I wouldn't mind the title track and Better being included on the album or as bonus tracks/b sides.
They really brought those songs back to life. They could do the same with other vault tracks.
They're bat shit crazy if Oklahoma-Berlin isn't on their list of tracks to work on.

. The presidency insulates him from criminal liability which he'll surely face once he's out
I know everyone believes this but I think the exact opposite....the moment his presidency is over, all of this shit is gonna go away and be chalked up as a nightmare.
The world will move on to the next big thing...possibly the left's version of Trump(Oprah, The Rock).
One thing that's worrying to me is if this is truly the new normal....the presidency being covered like this.
