1: Get a fuckin' album out. Be it CD left overs or whatever good material 95-97 lineup had, but a GREAT 12 song album released in 3 song packs in Spotify with a Deluxe edition.
2: No more "let's play in your backyard for money" tours. Fewer shows, more time for Axl to recover and get him in to a LEGAL, physical commit to be 100% vocally and fit
3: Whatever is left from CD lineups, Axl releases as solo + whatever his instrumental ideas. Get him a movie deal to appease his Trent fettish.
4: With UYI Anniversary, release Perfect Crime doc on YouTube as an extended 3h version with new interviews (Tom Petty's Running Down a Dream is a great example)
5: Whatever is on the vault from CD era, release as Axl Rose and promote it as solo on social (YouTube, Spotify, whatever)
6: Whatever is on the vault from 86-97 or 2016-onwards release and promote as GNR

I hate the idea of blockbuster movies and biopics and all that bullshit.

It's nonsense.

It's 2020 and if a movie track is up for grabs it's going to PopThot 2021 or Rap Guy #3080.

Release music. If it's good, people will listen to it.

If it's middling, your fanbase will be pleased and you'll get a paycheck.

Just... do it.

Pretty sure the "vault" is empty aside from half baked bullshit, mostly with no lyrics, that we all got to DL a few months back

I dont think there is much if anything pre CD in this mystical vault except maybe live stuff...i could be wrong tho

Besides who is interested in this shit aside from a few thousand diehards? Fan base has been dwindling for years

You mean you didn't like the majesty that was The Plague?

I think there's probably 1 album in the can, that's it.

Who knows what UYI stuff is out there. I think they blew their wad with the AFD box set because they knew it was their last shot.

My best guess is that to be the manager of this band, you'd take orders, not give them.

Managing them probably involves eating a lot of shit.

New tracks for the public, in digital & physical format. That would generate new revenue and make the artist feel better (given the tracks are good and promoted proper).

Commission a proper documentary film glossing over the career of the artist. Get 'his side' out there, so that people could applaud his career achievements.

Let the artist slip into further semi-retirement, feeling secure with whatever legacy he has at that point.

- Get Axl on a proper healthy diet and exercise regime
- Request access to whatever material is in consideration for an album
- immediately cull any Paul Huge rave-ups
- Push for them to record their absolute A-list material (hopefully there is a bit of this) fresh in the  studio (if they haven't already) - no CD rehash  (as in using old recordings - songs from this era are re-recorded by this band from the bottom up) - this NITL band recording the best songs they have now - with an emphasis on getting a 'band' sound - an esteemed producer and a cohesive sound. As above, Uncle Axl will be in shape and at his best performance wise.
- Try and get some Izzy songs secured in this set and give him some cameo appearances on the record
- Promote the hell out of the album
- Tour the hell out of the album
- Rinse/repeat

That's an interesting take. Instead of 'hoping' it all comes together again, just accept what he did, sell it as a story, and let it be. Not sure Slash & Duff would be thrilled per se, (no tour, film focusing on Axl etc), but it's a different take than the 'Release a great album, release the vault, tour etc' opinions.

Almost more about just accept that its over. Monetize that.
