16 Good point though. If Axl is content with the current interest/sales data concerning GNR, then there's no reason for fans to feel the opposite. If he's serious about moving forward, then there's nothing wrong with moving forward while not being on top of the world.

In fact, any musical output in the future could be more interesting without the insane expectations attached. Go check out that Bucket/Brain jam I posted in the kick ass vids thread in Black Hole section. I'd love to see Axl tackle something like that even though I know it would never go top 10. All I care about is good music.

This I totally agree with. I don't know about anything in the vault currently, it could be interesting, but as far as working something right now, it could be very interesting to see where it goes, now that the elephant that is CD and it's burden, is off their backs.

That is kind of what I was saying....:beer:

Burning, it is pretty well known that Best Buy bought between 1.3 to 1.6 million units so 1/3rd of the stock is gone. Just sayin.

Thanks Neemo, this says plenty for me.  AC/DC had a SHIT load of help from Wally-world promos (don't think so?  Try to go to the electronics/music area and NOT see it all over the place) and Metallica had quite a bit of (positive) buzz as well , neither were limited to sales in ONE (not very large) store.  Some disagree strongly with my opinion and that's ok, they happen to be friends of mine who often make very good points and don't just shoot off at the mouth, they are backed up with strong arguments.  BUT...I'm right this time!  Ok, maybe only half-right.  The album is a failure if you go by what could've/should've been, however it's not doing bad at all ESPECIALLY considering all the things that went against it.  And no the music wasn't one of those.  I'd love to have seen more rockers but in my opinion it's a solid album.  Appetite/Lies and the UYIs were fuckin' masterpieces, nothing can easily be compared to those albums.  That doesn't mean CD doesn't have its own merits...it does.

Maybe they can take the Better video and just change the song and release it as whatever the next disaster single is going to be.  Releasing a Better video now would be a waste.

Tell that to Aerosmith.  I remember them releasing a video for "Sweet Emotion" in the early 90's, a good 15 years or so late.  So we've got plenty of time to spare.
