There was more people at the fan meetup and after parties at Hammerstein than there were in Vegas.
I realize the reunion would've been more exciting but in 2016 the forums were a shell of what they were back in 06.
Were you in Vegas for the shows?
It’s easy for you to discredit it if you weren’t there.
But I don’t recall there being fans flying in worldwide to see GN’R in 2006
And that’s not taking away from the Hammerstein gigs. There was definitely excitement there too
It was THE forum meetup of the ages. Never before or since has that many people got together. It'll never happen again.
I felt even worse when I found out a bunch of people were asking if I was there.
I’d say the Vegas 2016 shows was THE forum meet up of the ages. Everyone from around the world flew in for that, myself included, from Australia.

A taste of Corey’s upcoming solo album.
CMFT Must Be Stopped
Black Eyes Blue
Not bad. First track is a hybrid rap/metal/rocker.
Comes off in parts sounding like Limp Bizkit, but it’s anthemic and catchy!
The second song is kinda radio rock Foo Fighters style, but pretty damn good.
Nice guitar solo too.
I’m keen to hear more
I'm not interested in a spoiled, pampered teen singing his dark lyrics.
You might be confusing Chris’ daughter with the blue haired fool that currently resides in GN’R...
And I think Chris’ daughter has every right to sing those “dark” lyrics, considering her own dad did himself in

Has anyone actually even heard Oklahoma? And we’ve got a thread asking who wrote it when we haven’t heard it yet...
Only in the land of GN’R...
We heard the instrumental last year. No Axl, but I mean you can tell it's a kick ass guitar driven track.
It's exactly what an updated GNR might have sounded like in 96. Hence the thought that maybe it actually is.
I must’ve missed that one amongst the leaks. Anyone care to hook me up?

Well, I’m happy to admit that I was wrong. I came across this in doing some research about UYI. From an interview with Slash:
On the Illusion albums, Izzy Stradlin is credited with rhythm guitar while you're credited with lead and rhythm. How does that break down on any given track?
Slash: It's simple. Izzy, even on the songs he wrote, put on a very bare-bones guitar part -- just basic chords. And sometimes, very rarely, a single-note melody. He has one guitar solo on Illusion I -- at the beginning of "Back Off Bitch."
You also solo on "Back Off Bitch."
Slash: Yeah, I play the main solo. I used to play this high-end trill thing for the first solo, but I could never play it consistently. So I just took it off altogether and let Izzy put a lead on, which is really a lot cooler.
The verse riff sounds like Slash too, because they have kind of a harmonic squeal thing going on, which is something Slash would likely play, not Izzy.
I’m happy to keep that up for debate though, as long haven’t seen or heard enough of isolated Izzy rhythm to confirm it’s not him.

No way. That’s got Slash all over it.
I’m going Izzy. Assuming we’re talking about the verse riff and not the opening lead and calling that an intro riff.
I’m talking about the intro lead actually. And that is most definitely Slash
