#1 Re: Guns N' Roses » Hard Skool: Does it date from ‘96? » 2 days ago

I believe it to be the Jackie Chan song, dating back to the end of the Slash era. Probably changed drastically but too much smoke there.

#2 Re: Guns N' Roses » Which was worse: 1995-1999 or 2002-2006? » 6 days ago

I was only around for 02-06. I got into GnR when I was in 8th grade in 2001. I was aware of GnR because of the 90s when MTV played November Rain nonstop. I loved the old band but grew intrigued by the mystique Axl had built up with nu-guns. I was in 9th grade when they did the VMAs and was over the moon. Thought Axl was going to take the world over and then Philly happened. The only saving grace for 02-06 was leaks.

Edit: at least in the late 90s you had the Spin or Rolling Stone article teasing new song titles for the first time.

Everything that happened in the 2000s is having its 20th anniversary (duh, FlashFlood). But think about some of the other stuff that’s turning 20…Hammerstein shows in 06, Chinese Democracy, and the arrival of DJ Ashba!

#4 Re: Guns N' Roses » Does anyone else kinda miss the 09-14 lineup? » 2 weeks ago

I remember all the hype around the Hammerstein shows in 2006, using the classic/hybrid logo, and getting my hopes up for at least some form of partial reunion. Ends up being BBF and an occasional Izzy appearance but I could live with it because it felt like the album was imminent, Axl was on fire, and at least Robin was still around. When they announced Ashba as the replacement for Robin that was the moment where it was like…what are we doing here. I still supported the band and went to a show with that lineup, but that’s all we had. Probably the best way to sum up that lineup…it was all we had.

No better pic of the orginal band than their Rolling Stone cover.

Only 70 bucks on Amazon! Wish I cared about this stuff but seems like a bargain for someone else.

Nice juxtaposition, misterid. Basically the same pic, backstage at a show. As if someone decided tonight was the night. I wonder who.

Wherever Axl goes music doesn't get released.

Slash n Duff always had New albums to tour behind whether it was Snakepit, Neurotic Outsiders, Loaded, SMKC,  Solo Albums, etc.
Until they rejoined GnR and Axl and his new music graveyard.

AC/DC is another band that always has a New Album to tour behind,  in fact Axl is the only singer to ever be in AC/DC that never recorded a AC/DC album. 

Wherever Axl goes nothingness follows

Axl = death of New music

Saw this post on another forum under another name. Not sure why it bothers me but it kind of does.

I don't care so much for lyrics apart from the way they sound when being sung. What I don't get about CD is how weak Axl sounds vocally when we know from the live shows that he had a great voice at the time. Not as much rasp as the old days, but still a very strong and powerful voice. Most of CD sounds like he's straining to sound like his old self. The IRS scream is good but is it really on the level of those Live and Let Die screams he did in 2002? Only the scream in TWAT and the vocals on Oh My God give credit to his skills at the time. This I Love too but that song is so cheesy.

Yeah but I feel like he had “it” on Better and Shacklers. Would have been a great time to record vocals for songs like Prostitute and SoD.

News is out everywhere and made official today. … ng-members

As someone who loves what AIC has become, I don’t mind it. People want to hear these songs live with original members. People will go nuts about the name but I think the ship has sailed on general public caring. Introduce the music to new fans.

Because that would require Axl to write new lyrics, which appears to be a massive roadblock for him.

And when you look at some of the lyrics on CD, it becomes even more embarrassing.

Nowt wrong with the lyrics on CD. Axl's lyrical turn of phrase is vastly superior to, say, Myles "rhyme light with right" Kennedy.

Mayyyyybe not on This I Love though lol.
