I'm still here... lurking and posting sporadically. HTGTH was an incredible forum in the years leading up to CD

I wish the person that interviewed Slosh brought up the fact that he had recently said 2022 was gonna be the UYI Box Set.

So which is it Slosh?

1- keep releasing GNR singles from Chin Dem II until album is done.

2 - release UYI Box Set

I highly doubt they will do both these things in the same year ?

Both are happening if you talk to anyone, great intentions for 2022. A bit random for one year, but Slash has other projects and they are not getting any younger. We'll see at the end of the year how far they get with everything. Sterling sound are mixing

Sterling sound are mixing which ? The UYI Boxset or new album?

Completely missed that. It's amateur hour again - riddled with grammatical errors ffs...
"In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupies the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release."

I just can't get into this generic cock rock stuff he has hung his hat on.

To me it's just a reminder of what each of the OG members brought to the table, and why they all needed to be present to make the magic happen.

Slash: Cock rock, Aerosmith, bluesy rock licks.
Duff: Punk, Prince-style funk, plus nascent Seattle grunge scene energy.
Izzy: Rolling Stones.
Steven: Loosey-goosey Van Halen-esque "happy rock" feel.
Axl: Queen, Elton John.

You can just about get away with losing Steven because you've still got the Duff punk-funk energy and Izzy's Stones-style rhythm.

But with the departure of Izzy and Steven you can see Axl taking more of a lead, so the pendulum starts to swing towards Queen/Elton John style Big Piano Ballads on UYI. That reaches its apotheosis with Chinese Democracy, where it's like 90% piano-driven epics with overblown layers of production.

With the new stuff, you can hear Duff throwing in some slick, snaky bass licks with that Rocket Queen energy (1:55 in Absurd, the intro and 2:55 in Hard Skool). You've obviously got Slash throwing down his signature licks, which he could do in his sleep at this point. But it's missing Izzy's Keef-esque complementary rhythms. If you listen to the riffs at 1:23 in Ghost, off the first Slash solo album, you can see how Izzy's laying down a choppy counter-rhythm that fleshes out the sound of the song.

And that's missing on Hard Skool – the rhythm (Fortus? Huge? Who fucking knows at this point) is just playing essentially the same riff as Slash. So it just sort of chugs along. And that's leaving aside the chugging drums that everyone whinges about, which I'm assuming were Frank – Brain, at least, brought that Adler swing to the band.

So, yeah, I like Hard Skool, but you can see wasted potential in it.

Anyway, as you were, back to discussing the solo album.

Couldn't agree more - great post and bang on, on every point

So am I reading it right that they have stripped everything bar drums and vocals?
Where does that leave Dizzy, Melissa and most of all Fortus? Are they featured ?

The more Brain and the less Frank the better for me...

Did Slash imply that nothing was done with GN’R? He implied that nothing new has been written, but that recording the old stuff is it’s own thing. Like as in, that will come out first before writing new songs. That isn’t necessarily bad, it just means that Axl wants that out first.

And maybe re-recording of the CD2 stuff is done?

Bingo. This is as about as close to confirmation of an album as we have had to date.

#9 Re: Guns N' Roses » Slash: GNR has not written any new music, everything completed is CD 2 » 35 weeks ago

So he has confirmed once and for all what we all suspected - we are getting Chinese leftovers. The way he words it implies it's finished and there is a substantial amount that is it's own thing. We can hope for all new material one day but I think that is unlikely. CD2 with perhaps a few covers has always been the most likely and achievable route to a new album. I actually see this as quite positive - it all but confirms an album is in the chamber...

#10 Re: Guns N' Roses » Will GNR release new music in 2021? » 37 weeks ago

Absurd has grown on me immensely. I'm all in for it being the album opener (if there is one)...
