It‘s sad that Angus didn‘t want to record an album with Axl. That was the only chance of new axl vocals we had i guess.. and to think some people thought it would delay a new gnr record (in 2016-2017)... 16

That's damn good. It's clearly going over well... better than Absurd that's for sure.


In 14 hours it has 264k views.

Not bad of course...but you'd think a major act would have more. It got more than Absurd at this point in time....and Absurd now sits at 2 million.

We'll have to wait and see how this song plays out.


It needed a real video.

You Know what‘s missing?   

It‘s communication!  GNR is constantly touring for 5 years and now they released two Singles, but it doesn‘t even feel real, because They never say one goddamn word about anything. It‘s like they‘re back but they‘re Not really back, because outside of touring they don‘t exist for a wider Public.

By the way this song Rocks! It‘s fun to listen to it in combination with absurd. Like those songs or Not, but you can‘t deny Slash and Duffs integral Importance to GNR‘s Sound. I‘m a huge fan of newgnr, but calling it gnr without those guys was probably the biggest mistake Axl Made...

I just looked through the list on globalmusicrights.com. Why is Ain‘t goin Down listed there? Was it ever officialy released or could it be a sign of things to come a la Shadow of your Love?

Who wrote That? Could be partly true, but some things don‘t add up. The general has vocals and where is perhaps? calling those songs B Material is subjective to say the least. I prefer silkworms, perhaps, hardschool and atlas to, let‘s say, scraped.

Merck made the critical and amateurish mistake of getting caught up in forum politics.

When your job now consists of daily messages of irrelevant shit to Madison and chineseblues, you're just another albatross smothering the project.

He's also a huge factor in how negative the forums got back then.


If he was trying to stage a credible comeback, maybe release a single or two to prop up the US and Euro legs of that tour. If unable to do so, at least allow radio stations to play the songs fans were requesting.

They're the only band I have ever seen destroy their own buzz....and they did it twice.


I still say 2006-07 was just a quicky thrown together plan B after the 2005 reunion attempt blew up in their faces.

It also makes me look at that bizarre, out of left field release of Cornshucker differently in hindsight.

I think Cornshucker...and maybe something else... would have been iTunes bonus tracks to 'The Very Best of Guns N Roses'. It didn't happen obviously and they wound up going forward with it for whatever reason.

A release of cornshucker? Did I Miss something?

#6 Re: Guns N' Roses » GNR Release 'Absurd' Single » 16 weeks ago

I was a little disappointed after watching the first live performance, but i have to say the studio version kicks major Ass! the bridge really seems a bit out of place as opposed to the village Version... anyways. Really impressive what difference slash and duff can make. The sound and mix in general is better than on CD if you ask me. And slash‘s guitar was sorely missed.

#8 Re: Guns N' Roses » We don't really expect a new setlist do we? » 17 weeks ago

I think I remember something Fortus said about working on material Slash wrote, but i‘m not exactely sure where and when i read that. If I had to guess I‘d say around 2014, but definitely long before Slash was back in the Band. Could have been hardschool.. and it‘s probably not the only song from those days. (Down by the ocean, this i love original version come to mind as well)
