Fernando if you read this I would like the next song to be Atlas but just released on 8-track and then maybe Zodiac or whatever the Piano moving jam is on Gramaphone.
Thankyou this song is better than the last one
They ACTUALLY should hire you to master the storage locker leaks for official release. Someone who knows the band, understands the principles of audio recordings, and will put in the time to get things done right.

Probably written by the same person that wrote that Perhaps was written this year by Slash and Duff. The mega link i left of the mix of The General yesterday has been flagged and pulled already. So someone is scouring for links and pulling them, i'd expect something on The General either this friday or next.
Holy shit! If the band is reading the forums for links, I hope they are also picking up on our messages about music:
Please sell us CDs and digital downloads of as many ChiDem songs as possible.
His career is a shambles. It was in 2002 when he had a superstar backing band and (as we now know) an incredible collection of songs.
I will forever remember the security guy at the Tacoma Dome concert showing me the handout everyone working at the venue received: 6,166 people in attendance. They had curtained off whole seating areas because they were empty.
For reasons we still don’t know, Tacoma was the first night of the tour due to Axl not showing up in Vancouver the night prior.
At the show he dove deep into nostalgia, with only a few token new tracks included.
New people and new songs at his disposal, but he chickened out and did oldies, which cheated us fans, cheated the band, and invited comparisons to the original lineup.
And then of course the tour collapsed a few weeks later for reasons, again, we still don’t really know.
Team Brazil does nothing we can point to as advancing this band’s legacy. They have brought us horribly designed merch and a nostalgia tour that is on fumes.
They aren’t managers in the classic sense of coaches who have one eye on the microscope (addressing immediate, everyday concerns) and one on the telescope (plotting out long-term goals).
By all appearances they are yes-men who keep Axl happy in whatever mood he’s in that day.

Can someone share if it's possible the full BD or DVD rip from the Illusion box set with the full Ritz concert?
James can confirm but I think posting links to download official material would get the site in trouble.
Plus, honestly, as much as the band disappoints us with foolish choices, when they actually release music we need to step up and support them.

The hustle band strikes again.
This is the appropriate answer. If you're a hardcore fan, you've probably already ordered Perhaps and Appetite on Vinyl anyway. Really it's not even a product that was neccesary. Just a cash grab.
"You be rippin' off the fuckin' kids / While they be payin' their hard earned money ..."
Wait for it.
People have noticed that on the official webstore link for this record, the songs listed are ...
Honest question: If the band was truly pissed about the 2004 Greatest Hits, how is this record, which has fewer tracks, an improvement, either as a representation of their history or a bargain for the fans?
