Those two certainly don’t. Are they from the same soundcheck as the clip Clear posted?

Well remembered. Hard to be certain but does sound like it could be

#3 Re: Guns N' Roses » What happened to Axl's voice? » 36 weeks ago

He’s done that a couple of times. Everyone thought the rasp was gone after 02. Then he pitched up in 06 sounding like it was 92 again.

Then after a strong start in 09 the final few years of the seemingly endless post CD tour it sounded like the rasp was long gone. When he returned again with the reunion he sounded good but measured. Then he joins AC/DC and the rasp is back in full force.

He still has it in the locker I think but uses it sparingly these days. Presumably not able to sustain a full tour singing that way anymore. Which at 60 is understandable.

What I’ve noticed more strikingly this year is the decline of his cleaner (helium/mickey) voice that as been his fall back voice when not using rasp in the last 20 years. He really seems to have lost a lot of power in that range in the last 12 months.

#4 Re: Guns N' Roses » Guns n roses played the general » 36 weeks ago

My first assumption was he meant in spring rehearsal before the tour but could mean studio.

You think the general is Axls best vocal take on the CD era stuff? i think its one of his worst right up there with scrapped.

Oh My God is also good but only in the verses. This has a great chorus.

Stuff like This I Love is too Michael Bolton for me.

The chorus is the worst part of the general
Axl sounds way out of tune and his voice is super weak

The sound quality isn’t good enough to give fair judgement imo on General.

The bridge in Monsters however, chefs kiss. That is some of his best work since 91.

They sound different in the context of normal live variation vs studio recording. They sound the same in the context of comparing two different players and styles and interpretations.

If it’s Robin on the version we heard then Slash has done literally nothing to it. Which is unlikely when considering the other tracks we’ve heard.

Hard Skool hey hey might be copy and paste from EYE on YOU but the way Axl sings hey hey in Perhaps with Slash is different than what Axl sings hey hey with Robin on the Perhaps rough mix demo. And it's not copy and paste. Axl sang Perhaps all over again recently in the studio. Look at the ending of Perhaps. No Finck outro. But it does have Axl singing the ending different on Perhaps than its demo. It's clear as crystal. And like someone else said I say it's not Patti Hood lol or Baz. Baz is a LEGEND and an ICON. Axl I assume has sung The General and Monsters all over again in the studio recently too. Slash I bet recently has added his guitar style to The General and Monsters in the studio too. Another poster said that Robin is piercing and strident. Well, if you listen closely to the end solo of Monsters you hear something that is strident and piercing too. It's classic Robin Finck. Slash can't play at that level. He tried on Perhaps, but Slash just couldn't quite get there. That is not in the Slash wheelhouse.

Absolute dribble.

So far only the Bucket/Robin versions of The General and Monsters have leaked. The Slash/Duff reworked versions of The General and Monsters have yet to leak. And that's because AXL has those tightly locked under lock and key because the vinyl release is set for December of this year.


So is it confirmed the demo is Bucket/Robin? I thought that it was from the Vinyl release.

I hear a bit of Slash in Monsters. I’m not one to know the differences in guitar styles to be fair.

No it’s not confirmed. They’re guessing, like everyone else. They just want it to be Robin.

Which it could be but it’s based off no more knowledge than anyone else has.

#10 Re: Guns N' Roses » The General and Monsters » 37 weeks ago

I’d probably compare more with the recent releases than classic stuff. Does Monsters sound like Slash from UYI era? Not really. Does it sound like Slash from Absurd, Hardschool and Perhaps? It does to me.

Could still be Finck or even BH of course but my gut says Slash. Less sure on the General but the voice box is a Slash signature.
