And don’t forget Tommy with his Duff like optimism. I literally laugh when people think things will change on the new music front because Slash and Duff will hold some kind of magic power over Axl. It is just fanboy bullshit. Nothing has changed other than the size of their collective 401k’s and retirement plans.
yup, I totally agree. more or less, Slash and Duff are just another guys who joined the circus, no matter that they were there decades ago already.
I think we should understad "soon" under a different timescale. you mean, like... the dinosaurs are extinct for a long time, but wool mammoths were still here really not a long time ago.
under the same timescale, the Earth will get destroyed when the Sun goes into the red giant phase in some 4 billion years or so, but compared to that, the GNR album will probably be out "soon".

you already got a reply at mygnrforum, but I think no harm will be made if I reply here as well http://www.mygnrforum.com/topic/220883- … able-info/

That shows very little faith in Axl’s ability....I figure what is in the vault will be similar to Chinese in quality just as Uyi1 is with Uyi2.
No, I just have little faith that locked away in a dog shit filled studio for a couple of years, a group of glorified session musicians managed to create some musical masterpiece that we’re being denied from hearing due to Axls procrastination or whatever.
realistically, there are probably some interesting to very interesting tunes or at least ideas, but I'm not really that convinced that those are really useful to make some release "great".
Chinese Democracy wasn't a bad album, of course. but I'd give it about 7/10 - it was way too overcooked and delayed, and the content itself wasn't that genius as everybody kept babbling about for all the years. I mean, can anyone at least remotely sane consider stuff like Scraped "great"?
of course, there's that thing about if ChiDem was just a "start" or if it was "the best of" - I guess nobody will ever be able to tell, because the stuff that was made during the whole era will most likely be buried completely, or released in some twisted form, partly or fully re-recorded by NITL lineup, which is... meh. it has already probably been re-recorded by Ashba-lineup and before that by Bumble/Robin-lineup, of course we can still go even more back into the history and consider the original stuff later re-recorded by Buckethead-lineup. all the stuff is so confused and a huge pile of disoriented stuff, that I think, at this point, all persons around will just let it be where it is.
(don't get me wrong, the idea of some release that would include stuff in its original late 90's or early 2000's state sounds like a Holy Grail of GNR, but realistically, I think nobody can expect that and it would be a huge miracle)
